He has no problems with Europeans. He has favourite players and he has least favourite players. He sung the praises of many Europeans playing for the Leafs (Yushkevich, Markov, Sundin). Cherry hates Crosby too because of his excess celebrations. He's from the old school where you score a goal and you just tap gloves with your teammates and head to centre ice.

Well considering how tolerant North America is to lets say .. Most of Europe yes he is a racist.

However; if this guy was chatting about a sport anywhere in Europe he would be considered a kitten

Not to mention he has practically no grasp of the english language. And has no clue on pronouncing half the players names in the league. You're an expert in what exactly Donald S. Cherry?

You two certainly have a lot of enemies.

Anyways, I know that on Saturdays after the first period, I always tune into Coach's Corner. I don't mind Cherry at all.

Well, you're bashing the guy in this thread, so I don't think you have fuzzy, warm feelings for him, same for Antropov in the NHL thread.

As for Delfino, your love for him is well documented.

I didn't say there was anything wrong with it.. it's just who you are.

But taking that to mean i hate everyone not named Delfino is quite the stretch.

As for Delfino, yeah i liked him here last season and would want him back only as a backup and only if we don't overpay.

I find Don Cherry very entertaining. He says things that can be taken as offensive.... stereotypes people based on their country of origin (chicken swede), etc. Though that happens much less often these days, of course (as more and more international players have started playing the game in the Canadian style).

In terms of hockey knowledge, I find that he is right about most things he opines on.... and he is certainly more fun to listen to than the rest of the dozens of other stiffs being employed as "Hockey Analysts".

Well, i have to agree with that. The Hockey broadcasters/Analysts are horrid to listen to. I still have a soft spot for Bob Cole as a broadcaster, but the rest stink. And the so called hockey experts on the other chanels (ie: McKenzie/Koolias/Kypreos...etc) are brutal.

Bob Cole is horrible. He WAS good back in the day, and CBC knows this as they're slowly phasing him out of the picture. Chris Cuthbert beats everyone.

I find Bob McKenzie is really good - he really knows his stuff - he's been around for as long as I can remember. Kypreos knows his stuff too - he was only in the league for like 10 years. Kouleas though..he's not as good as McKenzie or Kypreos, but he knows his stuff.

I don't watch him, but I like Steve Ludzik.

Mostly because I used to go to his hockey school every summer.

Bob Cole is pretty bad now. But i grew up loving his call of the leaf games. As for the other schmucks, they all know hockey. But their personalities are extremely grating. And Kypreos is one of the most arrogant asses i've ever seen.
