John Moore: Don Cherry’s ‘swaggering performance by a classic bully’ | Full Comment | National Post

Don Cherry slams ‘pinkos’ in the ‘left-wing media’ during Ford inauguration - The Globe and Mail

Quote:
Clad in a neon pink blazer for all the “pinkos out there that ride bicycles,” Don Cherry used his opening remarks at Mayor Rob Ford’s inauguration Tuesday to blast the “left-wing media.”

Seriously this guy has become such a douchebag. I used to think he was cool growing up and then I realized that he was just a hypocrite who was full of himself. He makes 800 K a year and then pretends like he's one of the little guys.

The sad thing is that he was probably much worse in the 70s and 80s. You know he has taken a far lighter stand on French Canadian and European in the last 10 years then before.

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.

The point where Ron Mclean points out that men get hit in the face too with the puck is great. But Cherry just goes on to calling him a whimp with that smug look. It's as if he thinks Ron Mclean dare not prove him wrong, but he must be saying that because he's afraid of the left wing media. That arrogance right there defines him perfectly.

He came to the University of Guelph in the late 80's, and I was helping with the audio. I got close enough to see why he wears the high collars. He's got absolutely no neck It's all loose flappy jowls kept all tucked in under there. It's gruesome.

While it was a highly inappropriate place to spew a tirade, it's as much a product of the slanderous left as it is of Cherry himself. The Toronto Star has been an embarassment during - and, apparently after - this whole election.

Don Cherry has evolved into nothing more than a parody of himself
anyone who knows (modern era) hockey knows that his opinions are simply irrelevant

It's a shame they were never able to get him off the air, it would of been in Cherry's best interests. The man knows hockey, and unfortunately he just can't hold his tongue from spewing bitter old man hate and being an idiot.

I like Cherry when he sticks to talking about the game.

We saw a bit of Cherry in Leo when Rautins called Bargnani and Dunleavy a couple of "creampuffs".

I got hit by a puck while watching a game once and I'm not a girl.
I wasn't talking to anybody either, just sitting there eating popcorn. I saw it coming at me the whole time then turned my head away at the last second so I ended up getting hit in the side of my lower jaw instead of my teeth.

what's wrong with creampuffs? isn't that just an analogy for someone who plays soft?

Biggest difference between Cherry and Ford is that one (Cherry) really knows his area of expertise.... while the other seems to be completely clueless.

Thing is, he is great. But he is only great as it pertains to the game of hockey, which for me is the real sad thing. He has so much knowledge, so much to say, and he kills that every time he opens his mouth about anything other than hockey.
