Agreed. Don Cherry lovers need to give it a rest. He is now 87 years old but was a doddering fool for the majority of his broadcasting career.
No, Cherry wasn't a "doddering fool" - what a silly thing to say.
Liked fighting, hated immigrants, mostly non-coherent. Sounds doddering to me.

Liked fighting,
He saw a need for it in the game. He's allowed to have an opinion. Just because you disagree with him doesn't make him "doddering", just silly.
hated immigrants,
That's just a dumb thing to say.

He wasn't incoherent ("non-coherent" in your lingo"), he was extremely coherent. This is just silly.

Any updates on Ron? You know the losers at the CBC won't back him, they'll can him immediately if the woke mob demands it.

Number of years ago Ron MacLean was fired for taking Gary Bettman to the carpet. On this I give Ron 2 :up: :up:

People are getting offended way to :cuss: easy, just look at the picture behind Kevin.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

I watched that happen live and I have to say I had no idea what Ron was talking about. I highly doubt he was trying to be offensive.

The CBC/Sportsnet surprisingly has his back.

I can only hope that the :cuss: losers out there that were (are) offended by what was said (it was nothing by the way to normal people) start their days off humming the theme song to M.A.S.H. until it sinks in!

Good thing no one is doing surveillance on me because pretty much anything that comes out of my mouth would offend someone and I don't care. Jeez, Trud-oh is apologizing to the italians today, Mclean apologizing to the LGBTYWSZZAPP community tomorrow for a comment that could be taken 10,000 different ways depending on who heard it. Enough already.

If I were Ron Maclean, instead of apologizing like everyone expected, I would have said right on camera...
"To those that were offended, I'm not sorry for anything other than how soft this country has become....you are a bunch of bleeping pusssys and I don't cater to pussys....Take this network, its offended pusssy spectators and ram it up your soft bleeping AZZeS....I WANT YOU to fire me ..."
But thats just me. I probably wouldn't even be there anyway because I would have told the network where to go the day Don Cherry left.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.
AB,SK,MB...are you going to wait until you lose your way of life before you consider getting out of confederation?

Ron McLean is in no position to be commenting on or mocking other men who have been photographed bare-chested. He's not above going shirtless himself... indoors in public places.

See the link below, but just in case anyone is offended, I'm going to leave the ".jpg" off the end. You can add it to the link and see the photo.

Typhoon44, all the people you watch and listen to are stuck up woke nothings.

Feels great to put down others eh?

If you don't have anything nice or constructive to say...

And now we know why he apologized. He's a Liberal.
