TORONTO -- The apologies have been pouring in to Don Cherry for the fake mansion story and the coach is accepting them.

“They have all said they are sorry — the realtor, the auction house and some of the media who reported it,” Grapes said Wednesday. “I do appreciate that.”

But he is still disturbed that it ever happened.

A news release went out Tuesday saying an $8-million, 10,000-square-foot mansion on Mississauga Rd. up for auction was once lived in by Don Cherry.

From there it was tweeted out and retweeted — including on news sites.

“It’s shocking that it happened in the first place,” said Cherry. “It really upset my family. It was like someone was trying to say Don Cherry is a big phony and lives big and has a BMW.”

He doesn’t.

Cherry said Canadians know he would never live in a mansion.
