i don't have a problem adding to the Don Cherry hate train. It saddens me that so many people think he's so great. Racist, homophobic, and undoubtedly sexist prick.
It's funny, when i was a kid and didn't know much better i thought he was great. My Granfather loved him, but now i just can't stand him. His awful stories about playing in the American hockey league and how tough so and so was 60yrs ago grew old while Clinton was president. I hear him on the fan590 and i cringe. Or those stupid commercials on the radio and i want to know why he has to yell when he speaks. Remember 3-4 years ago when they were trying to decide who the greatest Canadian was and many were trying to say that it should be Don Cherry...:facepalm:

He's all those things you called him.
