I know like the whole Alex thing where Alex. Ovech celebrate after he scores a goal. Cherry claims players shouldn't celebrate I just totally disargee on that cause a goal in the nhl is just awsome.

now thats something Don and I agree on... celebrating is one thing... but celebrating to an extreme and rubbing the other team's noses in it; thats not right.

its disrespectful and uneeded.

Well he doesn't get up on there face, he slides on the ice thats about it. Sometimes he might jump on the boards but thats about it. I mean Don cherry has to notice that hockey is more than canada now, its international an he just won't admit it.

i don't think don has ever considered the fact that two of his opinions might have to be reconcileable...

The Ovechkin thing wasn't racist at all - personally I think AO is really over the top, but it's good for the game. How is that different from Chad Johnson, Steve Smith or Terrell Owens in football?

I think you're thinking about the Mississauga Ice Dogs, Insider. He hired all Canadian people, but he didn't hire based on the colour of their skin, he based it on their nationality - I guess he wanted Canadians to have jobs.

Don showed, yet again how classless he is...

Quote:
"I'm going to tell you about this guy: He's got a free ride. He runs at guys, does this stuff," Cherry said. "I am predicting somebody's going to get him. And somebody's going to get him good. There's somebody out there - some big defenceman is going to be sitting in the weeds. As he cuts across centre ice, somebody's going to cut him in half."
I bet you if Crosby celebrated like that Don would claim that it is the greatest thing ever.

The way he talks about French players and European players, i think he's racist. Take into account his age and when he grew up, i think he's racist at least to some degree. I used to like him but now everytime i hear him on the fan 590 or see him on TV a i can't listen/watch. He simply gets on my nerves. Plus he has less grasp of the english language then G.W. Bush.

Maybe not, but I've always likened him to be a Stern-type of character.

He plays it up for the camera, takes it one step too far, but is completely harmless off the air.

Yeah, he's from that era of being a tough guy with a lot of bravado - sort of a defense mechanism.

He's bigotted. Racism is an over-used term really, that then loses it's power in instances where it rightfully should be used.

Yeah, I don't think it's about this or that race for him... after all do you think he would be more happy if his granddaughter brought home Russian or French guy then a Jamaican?
