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

I really don't get why everyone gets so upset about Grapes. He is just another comedien to entertain us. Clearly his hockey knowledge is so outdated it is no longer part of todays game. Just enjoy his old tales and if you don't like it go to the fridge when he performs.

Big Don is a hero to some of us old dudes cause he says it like it is. Jeff,dave and patrick should take up knitting--no wait, you already do that. The Don may lose it sometimes but nobody does more for the game as far as safety for the kids. I agree with gordie---he is an icon. As far as you non beleivers of the Don are concerned, go take up lawn bowling or something. Leave ole Grapes alone!!! He must be doing something right as he's been on there for over 20 yrs....

Don Cherry's been there, done that, a hockey icon.

Even if he wants to just sit there and fart on Coaches Corner, that's fine by me.

Damned right Grapes, damned right.

Jeff, take your petition, roll it into a long slender cylinder - and then shove it where your proctologist does his best work.

I'm with Pedro. Cherry is a loud mouth sure, but so what?

Knuckles Grimson wouldn't even have an NHL job today, they were scrappers, good ones too.

So what not like Cherry called 'em sissies of fags or anything like that.

Hurt feelings from a couple washed up ex-NHL fighters? ooohhhh shut up kids and get back to your lives.

Don Cherry; keep rockin and sockin 'em Grapes.

Most of us support yopur opinion and your right to call out the hypocrites

Fire Don Cherry from the CBC.

Look everyone, if we just get Don to apologize can we get on with it. Sueing for name calling, whos the idiot who dreamed this up.

PLEASE sign a petition to get or keep Jeff off of this string. Jeff's plan is no different than that of Grimsoon's. We all know Cherry is an uneducated loud mouth, but he is entertaining and he is entitled to freedom of speech. By the way, Don denies his accusors and is supported by McLean. Has anyone provided proof that Don stated they claim there drug/alcohol problmes are attributed to pugilisim. Or, are we talking lawsuits and bitching because he referred to them as turn coats and pukes? Jeff, get a life, a petition, really, you are a sad individual.
Pedro, 2011-10-13 13:31:11

Please read and sign this petition to get Don Cherry off the CBC..and tell your friends!
