    Somehow Iím surprised he made it this long.
    Wasn't there a quote that he was past his expired date made sometime in the 90's?

    Don Cherry should have been fired years ago. He has made countless racist/inflammatory comments against the French speaking members of Canada. It's pretty fucking rich that immigrants are what finally gets him. As far as I am concerned good riddance.
    Karma.

    So maybe my history is rusty, but were white Canadians the only ones who fought in the 2 "big ones"?

    Cherry supporters are some serious snowflakes.

    I don't wear poppies because there's been a paradigm shift from remembering those that gave their lives, "never again", that kind of stuff, to some weird patriotism, ultra nationalism military industrial complex thing, and Cherry perfectly exposed this shift.

    He got fired because sports net has wanted him gone for long time now and this was the perfect excuse.
    Didn't they just renew his contract a few months back? You don't renew the contracts of people you want gone, and certainly not for seven figures.

    This was Rogers deciding the screaming on social media would cost them more than getting rid of him would. Nothing more.

    And that's exactly how the free market is supposed to work. I'm comfortable with how this has played out.

    Except it's now being manipulated by vocal minorities. Maybe not in this case (haven't had time to look at the sentiment split) but yea, that's the point of cancel culture, to knee jerk react to minorities (in market share lol).

    Psh I think this joke was made page 1.

    Back to 2003, when what he said was infinitely more offensive but instead was celebrated as a beer commercial!

    Vocal minorities have ALWAYS been the people who get shit done. The vast majority of people will be ambivalent and silent on EVERY issue. I totally disagree with anyone claiming that what's happening here is new or a result in any changes to society.

    What drives me nuts isn't what he said or even that he got fired for it, but instead all the idiots who yell racism from one side of their faces, then turn around with the other side and say stupid shit like "Don Cherry is a racist and deserved to be fired... All you stupid white people need to learn!" OMG!!! Mustn't be racism because I am short skin pigment... lol! They are just as fucking bad and perpetuate the same bullshit they claim to hate.

    Agreed here. Don Cherry isnít a racist.

    This is just ban culture with the entitled progressive leftists looking for their new pound of flesh to destroy to make them feel good about themselves.

    I find firing Don Cherry over defending Vets and Remembrance Day far more offensive than anything he said, even construed as badly as possible, the whole situation is sad and sportsnet should give their heads a shake.

    If you want to fire Cherry fine, but this was a pretty stupid fucking excuse.
    He barred the team from drafting any European players when he owned the Mississauga Ice Dogs because he wanted to keep the game Canadian. His schtick has always been about keeping the game as violent and Canadian as possible (interpret that how you may). And he described himself in the early-90's as a nationalist.

    But also because you can't say shit like that on TV, let alone a national broadcast. We've seen what happens when people use platforms to spread a message that is discriminatory and inflammatory.
