How do you feel about Don Cherry?
Sun, July 6, 2008

There are few Canadian public figures as polarizing as Don Cherry.

You either love him or you hate him.

And what’s not to love?

Grapes is pure entertainment.

the article says it all, he is down to earth, his understanding of the game is bar none the best. truth always hurt, and that why some critics don't like him. He lives in the real world of hockey, and speaks his mind. It is a breath of fresh air to have someone like this, rather than all the anti hockey , and politically correctness of how to speak. Just a great person.

He's the best,I love this man, makes me proud to be a Canadian, he has done so much for others through fund raising and his charities and always tells it like it is, he truly is a Great Canadian.......

Cherry "jumped the shark" 5, 6 years ago.

His constant European bashing and cheer-leading for the leafs gets tiring after a while.

Plus, his knowledge is just purely common hockey sense.

Plus he brags about being such a great coach...He was terrible.

The day he and Ron leave the CBC the better hockey night in Canada will be.

And as for the whole Don for PM...Do you really want to live in a redneck third world country?

To say Don Cherry is a breath of fresh air is an understatement. It is so nice to hear a man, in this country, these days, who has the balls to speak up for and stand up for what he believes.

Most people in public positions these days change their opinions more often than most change their underwear, depending on "popular opinion"

Don you have been an icon in Canadian history. Class act all the way!

I would respect Cherry much more if he would praise Gretszky and give him equal highlight coverage as he gives another great player-Bobby Orr. Canada deserves more highlights of all great players. He has a monopoly and tries to indocrinate the fans on who he believes is the best.

Like him or not the man knows HOCKEY and I agree that if you dont like him restock the beer fridge or something while he is on. He doesnt care about popularity when he says what he thinks maybe we need more people like that. I dont agree with everything he says but I agree with more of what he says than than S. Harper any day!

CBC should stand for Cherry - Best Commentator. The CBC and HNIC would be a wash without Cherry and more-so now since they were stupid and foolish enough not to buy the full rights to the HNIC 'theme song.'

Cherry is an icon. He is probably the proudest Canadian we'll ever know, certainly in my life-time. He says it like it is and he's said things that thousands of us would like to say. He says what he feels. He says things that need and should be said that politicians don't have the gonads to say.

I met Cherry at Pearson Airport when I was on my way out to CFB Shearwater and I thanked him for both his honesty and his amazing support of the military. I shook his hand and he said "All you guys and gals in uniform make us Canadians proud every day." How can you not respect the man for that alone!

Agree with him or not, Don's entertaining to watch. He's not afraid to have an opinion, even when it's not PC. And you gotta love those suits.

We lost the song but it can be replaced. No one will ever take his place. This guy's a beauty!
