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.
