Did Don Cherry go overboard?
Wed, October 12, 2011

Why is it a surprise that Stu Grimson, Jim Thomson and Chris Nilan are exploring the various channels of legal action available to them following Don Cherry's rant on fighting in the NHL on Coach's Corner?

After all, Grimson is a lawyer. As such, did anyone really think he and the other two former enforcers were going to sit idly by while Cherry, who called them "pukes" and "turncoats" last Thursday, refused to apologize for those words?

Besides, in an interview with QMI Agency last Friday, Cherry insisted he would not say sorry for anything other than using the words "pukes," feeling such language was inappropriate while kids were watching.

Sure enough, during the ensuing Coach's Corner on Saturday, he was true to his word.

Do you think Cherry should apologize for accusing Grimson, Thomson and Nilan of being "turncoats"? Have your say in our forum.

Lawsuit possible over Cherry bombs

Don & Ron two lost souls clattering up TV time.

Don & Ron are great on Coachs Corner. So when is Mr Burke going to grow up and do his job of taking care of the Leafs. He cann't even do that and the he telling NHL people that Don & Ron should be fired. Come on, when is he going grow up and be a man and learn how to take critizm. If I was in the Maple Leaf brass Mr. Burke would be fired instantly. He thinks he knows everything, but does he!!! It is the team that wins not a man who thinks he can do by his smarts. If you ask me Mr Burke is not a very smart man and the leage is going to list to him. Shame on all of you same on for not having the balls to tell Mr. Burke to worry about the leafs and to mind his own businness!!!

If the NHL ever got rid of Cherry & McLean they can kiss their ratings goodbye. I know people who could care less about a particular Sat. nite game telecast but will watch Coach's corner. They may even not like Don, but this is the only place where you can get the inside story on the league to-day. Canadian Fans are knowledgeable and want more than the NHL spin by Bettman,( who few respect) as far as getting the real meat of an issue. It's the Honesty of Coach's Corner that makes it a must for so many.It may come as a surprise to some but the game is bigger than the Leafs. Interest can't be sustained by catering to a team that fails year after year. Burke has it right. Someone should be fired in Toronto, but it's Burke. A belligerant bully who few respect. Thanks Jim

I think it's time for Cherry to go to the Coach's corner for good.

keep it up grapes don't pay any attention to all these whiners. just because they don't agree with you you are wrong but of course their opinions are always right

I feel sorry for Don Cherry

We all need to understand stupidity is real and must be taken seriously. You could be sitting next to a stupid person right now. There is still no known cure for stupidity, and sympathy does not help. Sometimes a 2x4 to the back of the head helps, but not a lot. But we can raise awareness!

Don Cherry is a Legend in his own mind.

The team he coached to the Stanley Cup would have still won if your grandmother was the coach.

A coaches worth is shown when he don't have a stacked team and he did absolutely nothing with other teams.

He is only an authority on hockey because he and the CBC says he is. Personally I think he's a grossly overpaid buffon
