Hockey News Releases Its '100 People of Power'... Only 4 Were Women
"Look at the foibles PERV Curva lease and mistakes that are made in the hockey media like for example forgetting about all of the influential women on your influential people at hockey. The hockey news put out. It's annual People Power Influence in the hockey industry list. It has a hundred people on it. Ninety six of them were men a There was also a top fifteen media the head. One woman on it. That was Cassie Campbell Pascal. Who's also on the top one hundred list? There was a list of fifteen fifteen non NHL executives somehow. Danny Ryland didn't make that list despite being the Commissioner of the National Women's Hockey League Jayna Hefford also do not make the list it is. It's stunning to me. Like the women that made the top one hundred list were Campbell. Pascal Hillary Night Kim Davis of the NHL and and Hayley wickenheiser maids list. And you think about all of the people that could have made that cut. Here's one that absolutely absolutely stuns me. They have Terry PA- Gula at like number thirty. Something and Kim Gula who if you ask literally anybody buddy within the orbit of the Buffalo Sabres who runs the team. Why it's Kim Pula doesn't make the list you know? Alexandra mandrake you. Who've who've the Seattle franchise hired basically straight away to be their analytics? Group does not make the list. PARV underhill skating. Grew credited by so many people people in this league for improving there game does not make the list you'll to Grad of the NHL. In charge of concussion. Stuff does not make the list like I understand that the immediate default a fall argument is well when you went to quota. I just want you to expand your view beyond every you know dude. WHO's a CEO dude who's the GM dude who's an owner and just default setting to those people being on these lists? Because you know what. Guess what I was on this list. It's a nonsense list. You could literally put uh-huh anybody on this list if you wanted to but you chose to put four women on it out of hundred. That's crazy. Yeah you said you were shocked by Eh. I'm not I think this is a reflection of the views of women and women's hockey particularly. Because you mentioned you know Yes yes Danny Ryland should be on this list. Yes Jayna Hefford should be on this list there. The two women who essentially are figureheads guiding this really tricky landscape of women's professional hockey. Not Right now but this is just how we view women's hockey this. This is how it is. The institutional bias that comes from media comes from other areas. And look were you and I are both guilty of it as well. I don't cover women's hockey as well. They should've I. I'm sure you feel the same way. But the fact that they can't even be recognized like this shows the uphill battle that we have to yeah and the biggest the biggest failing for me. And when we're talking I'm really admit those that I cover it more much more from the perspective and from maybe the the personality perspective that I do the actual casual gameplay perspective on the meaning or as guilty as anybody of knocking the indicate shell a certain level of credibility if I just kind of you know covering it from a what does this mean for women's Women's hockey and here's an interesting player story kind of aspect versus which team is actually leading in the standings. That's that's that's obvious But again like like hundred people on your list and four there were women like there is ample and it's not even it's not even like you know should we force somebody on there to know. Oh there's people that are evidently qualified. You put Don Cherry on the list as a person power influence. He lost all his power and influence this year ear. Congratulations on the hockey

"Know. Hi Dave thanks for being here today. Your Wocka Oh cup. So let's start with Ron Maclean. On Saturday night he goes on coach's corner and he addresses the firing of Don Cherry in the events of the past week and it kind of sounded to me like he was talking off the top of his head which she quite possibly was But there was one person in particular that he was talking to. And let's have a listen and that's what I'll say but you don I love you so much and I you you always say you spoke like a thirty two year old American Hockey League player. You were always a captain the leader of your hockey the team the coach could count on to take care of the troublemaker. And you taught me to be that guy and so here I am sort of standing up and taking the position But that doesn't mean anything In terms of my respect for you or my judgment of you We will never do anything in the first intermission on hockey night right in candidate we have like the country to reimagined ourselves and there will be you know a possibility of this really bad unexpected thing to do some good things. I hope But we we honored what you've meant to the game to the fact that you have been there for human beings and sentient beings Just just fantastic human being and so I I love you very much and And we tonight In this in this last talk about a coach's corn Dave Schultz Authority. I what do you make of that. If you just look at the words it's it was very rambling sorta monologue The Times didn't really make a lot of logical sense. So yeah but I think that in itself showed how sincere zere Ron was. He was very conflicted. Obviously about the whole thing because Don Cherry's been one of his closest friends friends for close to forty years but at the same time This thing really went off the rails. Thanks Don and and and and Got You know over the line and willing to see all the follow know. How what did you make of Ron's comments Saturday particularly you know him addressing Don Cherry? Sorry I I really don't envy him having to go up there The next week I think we all have friends who were very close with or people who we love of. Who Don't necessarily agree with everything? So that was a really difficult position than like Dave said there was definitely some rambling. He I don't Begrudge him anything he did say say what would have been nice would have been to hear something else added about the comments that dawn made and why why they were wrong because they were just it was very much glossed over. Let me stop you there because I wanNA play you another clip which I think is the closes. The Raw McLean came to addressing the substance of what God dan fired there. Were steps that needed to be taken because of what had been said by dawn and He didn't WanNa do those steps so he made his choice and I made mine and then the next choice which was a really hard choice Probably sleepless nights all week or mostly about this. Don's my guy I'm in a foxhole with dawn and I've decided to go one way and he and other and you say okay. How can you choose principle over friendship? I had to You know I thought a lot about falling on my sword to and then I thought no but if I do that I infer what happened was right somehow or that. I'm going along to get along so no had t- tell me why that wasn't enough for you you well. I'm glad he said that. But in no point in that clip does he actually address the Substance of what Don said. He simply says it's wrong. But there was no addressing the substance of what he said on a lot of people were very hurt over what Don said and it said on national platform form and you have to say something to counteract that indicate that immigrants do contribute that immigrants due respect veterans. I notice he went a bit further last week when he spoke on Sunday. Don Cherry made remarks which were hurtful discriminatory which were flat out wrong. We at sportscenter apologized is that it certainly doesn't stand for what sports net or Rogers represents we know. Diversity is a strength of the country. I wonder who is Ron Maclean. Speaking to on Saturday judging by the four minutes and forty five seconds of the Model I think most of it was directed at Don Cherry because this is a huge disruption in their friendship and and I think-i was really really affected by that. I don't want to come across as sort of apologizing for run claim. A just in thinking of I would would do it this way. I'm GONNA guess that Eating may have thought that he addressed the hurt in what he said last Sunday night on hometown. Hawk that maybe maybe this time around. He figured Now I've you know Going to explain what what other repercussions there were for me. for this and So that Chemo. Totally Fair enough. What Dave said That he had mentioned it before on hometown hockey it just hockey night in Canada's handed complete other level right so More people are watching hockey and in Canada on are watching hometown hockey And people were tuning in this Saturday. Ready for this like I will say. I tuned in to watch this this Saturday exactly now. I think there's probably where he ended up and again I really don't envy him the position. Russian he was in probably What I saw on twitter was a lot of people saying oh? He betrayed his friends. So people who didn't feel Don Cherry deserve to be fired. Felt he'd been betrayed trade and then people who felt he deserved to be fired. Felt Ron MacLean. Didn't go far enough so it was almost as though he was trying to please. Everybody and I think the kind of Comes out somewhere in the wash right. And let's unpack that concept a little bit more as this conversation goes along. I WanNa talk about another flare up in the story on Tuesday a TV personality on the show. The social said this. This is just island. I don't worship at the altar of hockey I never Had and maybe it's because of where I grew up. There's a going to a couple of different universities. There's a certain type of person in my mind in my experience who does and they all tended to be white boys. who weren't let's say very nice? They were not generally thoughtful they were often bullies so there was a very strong reaction to this. It's the broadcast standards. Complaints Council like essentially said that they had to stop taking complaints Just just like they did with Don Cherry Fire Jessica Allen was is trending on twitter. One of the survivors of the Humboldt broncos. Bus Crash says they will no longer be speaking with C. T. V.. Just Allen apologized. She said she regretted saying that. Her experience as personal instead of the underlying that they were specific episodes from determine moments and my lived experiences. Certainly don't the gate. How much good this sport does communities and families across the country rest assured hockey families? I wasn't speaking about your sons and daughters who I'm sure aren't arth bullies and I'm sure loved the game as much as you do. See TV also released this kind of apology. They would like to apologize for everyone who was offended but they also so said that they would restrict hosts from offering their opinions but also that they were listening to viewers Dave. I'm really interested to hear your perspective here as somebody who has been steeped in in hockey for such a long time. Why do you think this touched such a nerve? This felt like a third rail. What happened here while in certain quarters? Yeah touched a nerve because You know there's a large chunk of Canadians. Just lost. What they consider one of their own Don Cherry went down and so then to have Have this broadcaster come in and dump on this segment. Let's go the the old white males I get as annoyed as anyone else When people who aren't hockey fans or don't know a lot about hockey chime amen with their opinions on this but in this case you know she was trying to say? She wasn't speaking generally for everyone in hockey so I'm willing to cut her some slack on that. Yeah hockey is such that There are certain places you can go all and that's exactly what will happen to you or what you will experience when she was talking about It's an all white culture and there's a certain amount of bullying going on TV was a little mealy-mouth but as networks always at least Policy but we're not apologizing but sorry were apologizing no do you. Do you agree with Dave there. Do you think that Jon Allen deserves to be cut some slack. I U Everyone has their own personal opinions right. My opinion is that what she said was quite hurtful MHM I've encountered the more the bullying or this or that in the online hockey culture. One my not that often even But when my kid played for a couple of years I was never made to feel other in that environment. I think people felt her because they were. Generalized.

"And this one's a hard one to answer the answer but I will ask you so says I live in South Carolina a deep south. US states as you guess. South Carolina is not a big hockey each state in fact the deep South is a very big football area. How can I get started with ice hockey? A now know that some people think that hockey he must be played organized but there are no local ice rings or anything. How can I get started and can't imagine it's easy to learn how to skate at? There's Rinks Dad but what's your answer. You Know Chris you have any ice so you're not skating. This pretty obvious but the next best thing I think they have the in line role Glitz and that's the next best thing to be an on ice so I would recommend you get yourself a good pair of of Inline rollerskates 'cause I mean. There's cheap hockey skates in his cheap in line and When I played with the Rangers we had had the very first in line? Roller Skates the organization. Bottom gave it to you each player back in those days. The hockey players you. We're in our prime. Our legs were our lifeline in so our legs were strong so when I would get on the roller blades. It was a piece of cake but you you know not having the kind of legs used to have when I get on a roller blade. Now Oh my God. It's hard work and so I would get a good pair. Were the ball bearings in the wheels are spinning pretty easy But definitely recommend is is get those in line rollerblades and that'll be the best experience sir closest to ice in a maybe as you get older and you maybe move somewhere where there was an ice surplus maybe that gives you a little heads starter. Order learning how to ski but is similar and it would be interesting to know if anyone else is from South Carolina and has some suggestions Russians. Send them our way and we'll pass them along to Henry so your last question and it's not from one specific person because as you posted a photo of the telegram that you got sense from the Houston Arrows letting you know that the team had the basic pulled in and was being sold to Winnipeg and Q.. wrote something like luckily you didn't have to I in Winnipeg and you were able to go back to the Montreal all Canadians where you were drafted. But a lot of people wanted to know since your firm Winnipeg widened. You WanNa play in Winnipeg and how you got out of that Hole Messin contract etc so for myself. And I've mentioned before if I was to do it all over or again I would never gone to the W. h. e.. There was people who was the best thing that ever happened to them because their career was coming to an end and world hockey him a good paycheck in some longevity. In the game the lumped. I signed a five year contract with Houston with the Phoenix. roadrunners runners and I moved on after two years and third year the team fold a went to Houston Aeros. I signed a seven year contract after the second year. The team folded so I really had a total of twelve years with contracts to two teams folded so win or Houston Narrow teague folded. Did I was really disappointed because we had some really good hockey players are coach. Building was one of the finest men that I knew and he was Kinda coach that I could play for unlike Scotty Bowman. Who would always have a scholars faces the always be on on my ass? I do my best but I just didn't play very well for Scotland with build a need. He was the type of coach that he didn't coach Shu negative reinforcement. He will do the opposite. which is what I needed pats on the back and I gotta believe most people would do better in life if you get pats on the back of positive force so when that team folded I I felt pretty bad they sold I would say the majority Jordy of the players to the Winnipeg jets that the players that the jets wanted on your team at this point? The jets were still in W. E. J. Rey. That is correct so they sold some good hockey players guys. Like I believe rich Preston Cherry Reskowski. There was a Guy Amy Scott Campbell. who was a high? NHL Draft Choice. That played defense with this Morris. Luca Witch Myself Win The team in Houston folded. I really didn't want to go back to the WJ because our lost money playing for the hill for those two different teams for various reasons. I A made a big mistake. I told my age that you know. I really don't WanNa go to Winnipeg jets But I'll go to. I'd I'd rather go to Montreal and I'm willing to take the same money that I'm making right now. anyways the bottom line was I said if I go to Winnipeg and they were offer me about twenty thousand a year more and was signed to a five year contract and I would have a no trade made contact. You'll contract in there. But I wanted to guaranteed Gajah so five US guaranteed contract and they said you know we all know the future of the franchise you know. We don't know what's GonNa Happen W shape so I met with Winnipeg and They could meet my demands of guaranteeing because if they would have guaranteed jeepney our not much I would have got the guarantee. I would've gone but having said that I really it would have been harder for me to play when the pig nick you know I I. I love my Father Duly but my dad I just. I didn't play while in front of him so I was worried. The maybe I would play as good as it could. So it had guaranteed five year contract otherwise a really wasn't motivated to go back and as it turned out with Montreal they knew I was from Winnipeg and there was some legal problems in the world. Hockey said Oh no no you still Obligated in your contracts binding you have to go to Winnipeg and my position was when I had a no trade no cut contract with the team folded that allowed me to go anywhere water to go and of course the NHL their legal team said. Oh that's exactly right and so so much y'all in the off season while this was gone through a believer with you the courts the least the lawyers were get together much. y'All told my wife wife and I we don't want you to go back to would have paid in the summertime because they were afraid that wouldn't have paid to had access to be. Maybe I changed my mind that signed the contract the morning so they told my wife and I that what they would do is that I could go anywhere in the world for two month's Montreal would pay the bill to steal to Winnipeg and at the time I really wanted to play well in much y'all and anew if I'm traveling world world that my training would supper you know I could say I'll workout whatever but be more like a vacation so I just knew that I didn't you WANNA I didn't WanNa do it. In hindsight man too much paid vacation anywhere in the world and has turned out. I did have a good year much. y'All so I'm wondering maybe I shoulda Shoulda Coulda done any worse so it took a while before I got into that lineup because there are still it also legal problems that prevented me from playing with them in some of the exhibition games and so on so that really was the reason that I did. Go back to Winnipeg I again. I probably should never gone to the W. H. A.. I should just got rid. The Montreal do believe my career career would have been different. It's GonNa Haunt me the rest of my life that I didn't play as well as I thought it could've or should've so but it is what it is and you WanNa Cup so so there is that something you could look as a positive so the before we get to Don Cherry. You mentioned you started A A bit of a story on a goalie named Lim Zimmerman. Just start at the beginning and I said I don't WanNa hear save it for the podcast. So why don't you who Tell the story of of the schooling. And what you did her him in. His Haga Stories aren't hockey. But this one Lynn Zimmer. I believe Lynn Ann. Ann I have Google that I may be wrong. I believe he was Maybe he resides in Rochester. New York right now and the lid was a little girl. He wasn't very big but he was sucked out likable guy. He was married and he had a believer daughter. That had some health health problems that he was only in the minors for many years. Just making minor league money and each trial for Houston and he would make it and I I took a couple of the guys aside and I said you know what we gotTa Help Lynn Out. He's used to make some money to help his family out all the different medical bills that were covered. So what what. My idea was that I talked to three. The other occupiers agreed so it training. We wanted to make the Zimmerman look better at any. I thought he was a good goal. WAS A we wanted to try to put the odds in his his favor of making that team so what we will do a training camp. We will talk to a before the practices and when we would have different drills. We've come down one on one shoot on the goalie. I would tell him okay. I'm always going to be aiming at the gloves side or I'm going to be in Los Dick side or chewed out his pads. The other three guys did the same thing and We were a coach said to you had a great trading cap and so you know Live made the Chemo. I don't WanNa take all the credit because again this I thought the Golaghat some ability. Maybe he would have made the team anuas without as doing it but this is something that we wanted to do because he was a good good person you needed a break and we just wanted to help put the odds in his fever. I don't think anybody's ever done that with a goalie before. But you know this wasn't nhl as was W H J. I'm still happy tweeted this day. That evader teeth business. A hell of a person Linda. Listen good man buddy thank you so a lot of the hockey world has been talking about put Don Cherry. His controversial statements about people wearing poppies ends. He said a few things that he probably bubbly while he definitely shouldn't have said I know it's kind of a a topic that some people don't really see the harm in what he said. A lot of people do see that. That's not what he should be saying and really it's a hockey show. But he is known for going on tangents and for his extreme stream views. So you tweeted your opinion on Hannah. The incidents and I thought maybe we could talk a little bit about your history with Don Cherry. I know he coached Boston when you were playing in the NHL kind of your opinions on him. When I google time I was surprised to learn that you? You is eighty five so it's had a good long career but I'm curious what what your thoughts are and if you you think he should have been fired for what and said well should he have been fired. Everybody's entitled to their opinion so in my I don't think he was right. You know what he said. I think I've learned my lesson the hard way like I'll come out and just say honesty the way I looked at it it people mad at me and somebody beside me says the same thing but it phrases differently and I find the people laughing and I'd say well isn't that what I just said so I've learned the hard ways. Who's how you say things? You can get the same message across and I just believe that dawn. I think he's all school. You know what I look at my father at ninety nine and other older people especially people that served in the military in World War Two and so on the sending in your ways and back in the day your low to say your own opinion and didn't social media were you could be attacked for just giving your opinion. It doesn't mean senior writer raw. You just today. It's a lot different. You know you could say what his opinion. All the cow you can get crucified Safai. So you gotta be very careful in today's world what you say and how you say it and with Tom I just I believe he's old school and I love somebody that just speaks from the heart. I honestly don't think he was trying to hurt anybody so when we say he speaks from the heart. You Know Don Cherry. He has a national platform. People Watch listen to Ya. I love them or you hate him. I I like the idea that again. He speaks from the heart but having said that Don just house to you know what he said was raw is no doubt about it. You just can't can't see what he said and I do believe you know. Maybe he's not saying he's sorry. I honestly believe leave that he did raise property. I do think he's a good person. I do know players that play far and every one the players that played for the Boston bruins under Don Cherry. Every one of 'em inevitable. I played with Bobby Smuts Bobby played for for number are- years. They had nothing but good things to say about your coach as a coach and as an individual as a human being and that speaks speaks volumes to me. I personally wished that dawn did say what he said because again it was wrong. I think if he had a chance to we do it back up time he was phrased a little differently where he would actually kind of like be pointing fingers at Everybody Canada but the new the country we are. You know you've been here your whole life. I think he was just trying to say that. Everybody should support the troops and poppy. He e e- made a mistake. Dewey said and what did you think of him as a coach. Well you know again I just keep talking. -able type accords that I need order. I just didn't have the confidence you know might have had some ability there but I do never competence. My ability did shot but Don Cherry. When I talked to the.

I think another factor was was the fact that the ground swell from the public was was so so swift and so big. This time that they couldn't just brush it under the carpet like they had in the past and how much of his firing is a result of pressure from Sponsors of hockey night in Canada or sponsors of NHL broadcasts. We haven't been able to confirm anything in terms of of of whether or not there was pressure from Labatt to have him fired but they did come out with their own statements saying that they stood behind sports nuts decision to fire him. And how much of this could have been just a straight up business decision. I mean Don Cherry was getting paid a lot of money and there had been rumors. There's this past summer that his contract might not be renewed when you get up on Sunday and you read the in the paper that they're talking about not bringing you back. Yeah that's how and nobody called you. And it's at the bottom of a column and yet it explodes on twitter and after all that you've done Out of that feel. Aw I was hurt was this may be an opportunity to get rid of a guy who was costing them a lot of money. I think. That's that's it's definitely part of it. I think the other part of it is a calculation as to how many people were upset by this as opposed to to how many people still wanted Don Cherry on the air in in terms of your viewership and also in terms of the people who would be buying your products audits from your sponsors and you know all this is happening at a time when there's actually a decline in hockey participation at the youth level all in Canada first of all. Why is that? Why fewer kids in Canada playing hockey these days? I think there are a couple of reasons. I think that the main one is is definitely the financial aspect of it. You know hockey has become a sport of privilege. And I think think when you've got kids and limited resources there are other sports that are are more affordable. You know things like like soccer where you know. You don't need all the equipment to play. The other thing is a lot of people. Don't want to put their kids in hockey because it is dangerous. And they're you know the the element of of of concussions in there as well and so what have youth hockey organizations in the NHL been doing to try and increase the number of talk your players and increase interest in the sport. So the big thing now is trying to get new Canadians and immigrants into the game of hockey. You know the thing that hockey Canada is trying to do and the NHL is also trying to do is is to grow the fan base for hockey and so you know you hear often often from the NHL hockey is for everyone at the Edmonton oilers. We have a saying hockey is for everyone on our our team. In the critical moment what matters is a strength of character not our skin color or religion gender identity or sexual orientation when retreat each other with respect and as equals and so they really want to hit home the fact that this is not just a sport for white men it can be for women and immigrants and Lgbtq that it is an accepting sport and so given given that that's the context in which Don Cherry's comments were made. Is that part of the reason that there was additional pressure to fire him. The idea that his comments might be alienating communities that are essential to growing the sport in Canada definitely one hundred percent and so scenario. What do you think is next for Don Cherry? Is this the end of his broadcasting career or is he going to be back on the airwaves soon. He's he's eighty five years old so I'm really not sure what his plans are. I wouldn't want to hazard a guess you even and and what's next for hockey night in Canada and this iconic coach's coach's corner segment. They haven't made any announcement yet but I have a feeling that they might just try and write it out. Since the season's already underway there are a number of of names that have come up as a as a replacement. The most notable is probably Brian Burke who is a a former NHL executive you know he's. He's very outspoken. In kind of the the same way Don Cherry was but without the same kind of of of politics since Monday. There has been a lot of talk about this issue. Cherry's firing his ignited a national debate this petition Shindig get him back on coach's corner nearly one hundred and forty thousand signatures and climbing and a few days ago. Don Cherry made a statement to a reporter. That wasn't exactly an apology. More of clarification. So I think I should've used the word everybody instead of do people if I had it to do over again I think I think I would have used the everybody and tonight. Where do you come down on all of this? Should Don Cherry have been fired. You know people want hockey to be more accessible. They wanted to to be a more affordable and Don Cherry is kind of an impediment to to that because he wants to take it back to the way things I used to be. I think Canada has evolved but Don Cherry hasn't tonight thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you so much on.

"don cherry" Discussed on The Lead
"Let's start with the news here tonight. Can you just walk us through what happened just this past weekend so on Saturday night during a hockey night in Canada's broadcast Don Cherry made some comments. You people love you come here. Whatever it is you love our way of life you love of our milk and honey at least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like these guys? These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada these this guy's pay the biggest price and when he says poppies he's referring to those lapel pins people often wear it to honor veterans correct. Yep and this was in the build up to remembrance Brin stay which is like Veterans Day in the US. Yeah it's November eleventh the Eleventh Day of the eleventh month and then at eleven when they hold a moment of silence to remember those who have died in service to the country and the the Legion sells Dell's poppies in order to fundraise for these kinds of things and in his comments he reference the city of Mississauga and downtown downtown Toronto Downtown Toronto. Forget it downtown trying to nobody wears the poppy. I'M NOT GONNA wait. Wait a minute Hobo running for the people that buy them now. Oh you go to small cities and you know you know those. The rules and the subtext here is Mississauga. And Toronto are ethnically diverse places whereas the small all towns that he mentioned these are whiter more conservative areas presumably. Yes and it's also the inference of of you. People you people that come here. I think that was very targeted towards new Canadians and immigrants here and what was the response to his comments. There was a a huge wjr outgoing right away. The phones have been lighting up with angry listeners. Reacting to the comments Don Cherry made hockey night in Canada. He should not define us we. We know how how much Canadians we are. We know how much love we have for our soldiers on the coach's corner segment. I think this is kind of par for over the course with Don Cherry. He said offensive things in the past but I think the outrage was so widespread that this time there was no walking it back back and there was a report that the Canadian Broadcasting Standards Council was so overwhelmed with phone calls that their system broke yet. They actually I had to stop taking feedback from people across Canada because it had overloaded the system it actually crashed their website as well and then two days days later Don Cherry was fired Monday. Sports that responded fire Dawn said falling further discussions with Don Cherry after Saturday's broadcast. It's been decided in the right time for him to immediately step down. During the broadcasting divisive remarks do not represent our was he actually fired or was he asked to resign. You know I think it. It was quite clear that that he was fired in another report. Cherry says that He asked if he could come back on Saturday to clarify and he was told no by the people at Sports Net and that firing came two days after the initial comments. Why the delay? I have a feeling that that sports neck kind of wanted to see what the reaction was going to be. They had put out a statement apologizing to viewers and then Ron Maclean who was his co host also apologized for Cherry and You know made his own apology. Don Cherry made remarks which which were hurtful discriminatory which were flat out wrong. We sportscenter of apologized. It certainly doesn't stand for what sports net or Rogers represents Servino diversity is a strength of the country and I just think they were waiting to see what would happen and I don't think that was enough for most people all right so let's just back up for a second here and talk about Don Cherry's backgrounds. He's a former minor hockey league player who who eventually became an NHL coach. He's probably most famous for coaching. The Boston Bruins back in the seventies record oracle hockey second fight and then after his coaching career was over. He transitioned into the media via and was part of hockey night in Canada. On the coach's corner up broadcast and for those familiar hockey night in Canada this is like an iconic. TV show yet. It's probably one of the highest rated show still to this day in Canada. You know for the longest time it was on. CBC Hockey Night in Canada was something that all Canadians could watch each. And these coaches corner segments. These became really popular in some ways. They were almost like a comedy show. You have this really colorful foale character in Don Cherry. And then you have this kind of straight-laced guy in Ron Maclean and it was almost like let's watch as John makes run uncomfortable and it was stupid. He should never have done it. And a two two tie with a referee stat and area even made a worst. We're set chozas mentality. But let's quit picking on hockey. It's not that bad. Well that's not on I think Rosemary for Flynn. Here's he doesn't like the bank in the fashioned. Why would he's only this very much? So I mean I it became something that like when you were around the TV you would turn the volume up or you would to tell other people in the room to be quiet because you had to see what was going to happen on coach's corner and of course we have to mention Don Cherry suits. It's it's like the your grandmother's worst tablecloth is is probably the best description and you know he had had these shirts made with a very high collar. It became part of his his brand like that was that was his his stick and he really was a Canadian. I Khan he was doing commercials. More Canadian bubba now dressed like Don Cherry. He was doing other things too. He had a a show called. Don Cherry's grapevine which was kind of one on one type interview show and end He did he did radio spots. and He of course put out his eye contact Rackham stockham videos which were kind of just compilations of fights and big hits the left boy aided quite left these. You're always what time I get hit so much. I was begging for a left leftover route. Go crazy they love it they love it and a lot of people may not know this but the CBC she had a show called the greatest Canadian where viewers could vote on. Who they believed was the greatest Canadian of all time breath eight Matt Heart and I'm here to tell you that Don Cherry's the greatest Canadian is good? You say thanks. MOM is bad lyrically correct suck heart to size a Montreal that the best win why keeps car unfiltered uncensored raw voice of Canadians and Don Cherry came in seventh. Yes he yes he you did. I think everyone who lives in Canada knows who Don Cherry is period. So Don Cherry was clearly you know fun colorful character very a well known in Canada but at the same time not everybody was a fan of him and he had a habit of making really inflammatory remarks. You know. It's it's popular to tell people now to to stick to sports and I think if he had just done that we wouldn't be having this conversation today but he he crossed that line so many times he spoke out about women in the locker room. I don't believe I really believe this. I don't believe women should be in the mail dressing room. I is now wait a minute. I remember the first time it happened to me. Guys are walking around naked. And I hear this woman's voice I turned around. And there's a woman she's US Europeans the Europeans and French Canadians. Who Wore visors? Were soft or you know. Swedish players were were chickens using upper body strength of India Russians. So amazing there. Nothing just a minute turn. County T H I n at touch but only one and you. No he was known. As a proponent of Rackham Stockham tough-guy hockey and he really Kinda double down on that even as we moved into an era where there was more awareness of brain injury. He called concussion. Spotters Dum dums. And you know He. He was very upset. Set when Hockey Canada took out body checking at younger ages and then when the NHL had their concussion lawsuit he attacked the players who are involved in that. Listen this is a money. Grab as far as I'm concerned guys plays fourteen games at fifteen games and they said they didn't know the danger going into the National Hockey League. Absolutely ridiculous I wanNA grab as far as I'm concerned. And that was a bit rich coming from him considering he had made so much money off of those rock them sock them videos and he even spoke at the swearing in of Rob Ford. The disgraced former mayor of Toronto. Who passed away a few years ago? Yeah you know. Toronto was was trying to put in more bike lanes at the the time. And so you know. Don Cherry went to to city hall as a special guest of of mayor. Rob Ford all four of their right bicycles and everything. I thought I'd get in who being ripped to shreds by the left takeoff newspapers. There's unbelievable really like no one was safe from Don Cherry..

"Phil Kessel dogs now. He does not love to eat hot dogs. We look at the the end straight comedian. Good it's still cast loves hotdogs segments we look at the foibles and the hyperbole I purposely of the hockey media emily ever hit a pin Yada. It would just take a wack at opinion Outta I have you remember how all the candy the falls out when you hit it good. That's Kinda like Phil. Kessel loves hotdogs this week in the sense that the Don Cherry News sparked just a pin Yada full of bad bad takes trickling down upon our heads. We whack it with a stick. I'm going to go to this one though Dave staples of the Edmonton Journal Dave's a guy that I've known online mm for many many years but he wrote a story about who wants to come up with he wants to come up with. Who's going to be the next Don Cherry? He kind of did a scouting report of who he thinks could would be the next Don Cherry who could take over that segment hockey night in Canada. He's not the first guy to say this or the last guy to say this. I'm going to pick on them for saying it. His top choices voices. Ray Ferraro now ray. Ferraro is brilliant. He's the best between the benches guy in the game and one of the smartest analysts that you could ever find the also works for TSN. And I'm assuming contracts all right then and there you have one issue. Here's the other issue. contract was coming up you know what. TSN likes to do for people that might jump over and help out their archrivals especially especially in a prominent post Jon Cherry role. They're going to back up the truck to keep him which esn that's what they did for all of their talent. Alan when sports net got the rights. That's why sports you know. Kept their crew of Kip Rios and all those guys together and and the the panel that everybody loves loves over at TSN state of TSN because he paid them very handsomely so while I enjoy a good fantasy casting. Emily the idea that Ray Ferraro tomorrow would be even an option for this hockey night and candidate job. Seems patently ridiculous given very inside Baseball Phil Castle as hotdogs.

"Is now embarking embarking on a second career producing ultra premium. Whisky through bell. Four spirits Sir as a connoisseur of booze. It's every hockey writers. You know lifeblood. Congratulations on this new GIG. Yeah thank you very much. It's it's been five years in the making Son and I started this and My daughter's now involved so it's a own family business and we we enjoy doing together and a lot of fun with it. Always fascinated and guys second careers. And how they they transition into them just tells a little bit. I mean this is part business business. You know part A.. Understand real estate. You've got a place in Kentucky part distilling. How did did you prepare for this? Did you take classes. What was that transition like swine in my career around two thousand nine and I was trying to find something that a could? Do you know to replace the the awesome feelings you get from being you know Part of so many great teams championships in the NHL and Team Canada's and stuff like that and that's very difficult to replace you know twenty years of of a lot of fun and excitement and Go my son. Also a goal finished his career Somewhere around two thousand twelve thirteen and We just started looking into this stuff that we could possibly do together and we looked at The alcohol business and you know look at the trends that were going on in the business and how well so You know in Brown spirits were doing and the vodka market was pretty Entrenched with a lot the new brands and and it seemed like you know Brown spirits was more at the beginning of the trend. And we find whiskey A lot more exciting and more creative anyway so we started looking into learning as much as we could about the business and Actually you watch the show called Moon shiners. That was pretty funny to watch but at the same time like well. You know these guys can make whisky route we I'm sure we can figure out how to do it. which was pretty funny but We went to distilling university in Canada Colona BC we were. They're learning as much as we could. And then we end up going to moonshine. University in Louisville Kentucky met a lot of great people Come out of that school and a lot about the street We ended up hiring few of the people that we met At the school and they've helped helped us tremendously Creating brand and You know everything that I get involved with. I WanNa do it first class and do it from the bottom up and treated the same way. I treated my career and You know we wanted to create the most excellent whiskey that we could make and being an ultra premium class. You know we. We learned everything from Hotter Mash and distilled ourselves to all the woods. Selection all the barrels You know that's what creates these unique make flavors of Belfour spirits and we think that if you go the extra mile like I did in my career that we should have some success. I feel really bad for going to the University of Maryland now that I knew that moonshine university was available to me Patty. There's been a lot made about the changing habits of NHL players. There's recently saw a story about how a lot of these dudes are drinking wine on the road because it's not as taxing on the body. is they like spirits beer. Now back in your day rock and roll the Blackhawks and the stars. What what what was the drinking culture like for you guys away from the rank all it was a little bit of everything Going up in Canada You know we started drinking beer and whisky when we are twelve or thirteen years old so that was pretty normal for us to drink beer You know all throughout my career was a beer and whisky and a little bit of wine once in a while special dinners so You know we We basically were beer and whisky guys over it. You know I wouldn't be surprised if You know nowadays all days. They're taught that You know maybe one is a little bit more healthy for you. But I'm not so sure that's the case. I think it has a lot to do with how much sugars the product to be honest with you right as we talk about times changing one of the biggest buzzwords these days in the NHL is on sports arts is load management and in hockey really. Just talk about it with goalies and I'm curious when your visa your first ninety one use played seventy four games. Did you feel like goalie workload. Management is a long time coming or is it kind of be as if a guy can handle that workload. Just give it to all well. I feel that it's the guy can handle the workload. Can you give it to them because you want your number one guy in the net as much as possible. The coach has confidence in them. The players have confidence in them in mcelroy and the players get used to plan a certain way for a guy and they have confidence in that guy. The defense play a certain way like they know they can take more chances before they can take more chances chances when they have confidence in their goalie when they have a goalie back there that you know plays every once in a while and you know he's not quite used to how the defense plays and they don't always have that same confidence in that guy. So that's why you know over the years you've seen teams where they try to split goals and you know sometimes that works sometimes. It doesn't but for the most part doesn't especially when you get to the playoffs like for a guy to play. You know every second game in the playoffs in Split Games. That's pretty tough and it's tough on the team I. It doesn't create that consistency businesses. So I'm a firm believer. You should have a number one guy and he can handle you know anywhere from you. Know fifty five to a sixty five games. It's probably a good number You know I played seventy four when I was a rookie that that was a lot of games I could handle it because I was in great shape You know always worked out. Took my on my off ice stuff real serious and you have to be able to do that. And and be in great shape to be able to play that many games in play at a high level and then had the energy to play. You know possibly possibly another twenty eight games and and In the playoffs you know So that's difficult thing I do see more for more work. Guys are playing less games and you talk about load management. Maybe that has something to do with you. Know the the schedule being maybe a little bit more. Condensed now You know they they. Don't give me days in between the season's shorter in fine period. So that could have something to to do it. I don't have all the answers. But I'm a firm believer in in one guy there. You go in the last twenty five five years. We've had six goalies get into the hall of Fame Grant Fear Patrick Wa yourself the dominator Rogie Vashon and Marty. The hall of fame has got a bias against goalies. Come on don't they vernon still out there. Cujo still out there. Six guys nineteen ninety-four Eddie. Well it's kind of like you know the trapezoid Rule they put in you know. I don't know what your that was but you know they talk about making the NHL you know more skilled game yet. They take away a skill from the goalies. You know that wasn't easy to do Back back in the nineties when guys like Martin Brodeur and myself You know there's a few guys could really play the puck well and and You know go get the puck in the corner earn play it up And and make an outlet pass and save your defense and from getting creamed boards. I mean that took a lot of energy and skill and and yet they take take take that skill away from goalies so you know again. It's a numbers game You know if it were a bunch of goalies running the League you know the the rules would be much different. I would imagine so the same thing I you know. I don't have any control over WHO's picking The the goal is to get inducted. Obviously but Maybe there there aren't too many the the goal is that are on the committee and You know we you kind of get overlooked once in a while you still follow the League pretty closely. I watch a few games here and there and I love the playoffs the playoffs. Oh my favorite time of year and I think the game in the playoffs is a lot more like the old style game you know. Let the guys play. There's a lot more ruffin awesome toughness and hitting a lot more excitement so I like the playoffs as I'm curious. What goalie today impresses you the most post game seven on the line like who do you want back there for you if you can't play so many there's a lot of seems seems to me? It spread out throughout the week. I don't really have one favorite because there's been guys if if have played like really good for short stints in the League right now but You know I think think there's some guys out there that You know has done a great job for quite some time like Jonathan quick to pick one guy. I think Johnson's had some injuries deal with For a while but Jonathan is definitely one of my favorites So I I'd probably go Johnson Clicks hard hard to say Andy where people pick up your Your stuff your your whiskey and your product man. Yeah so right now. We're doing owing mainly Chicago. We're at Few different liquor stores theirselves in Dallas Texas Were at goody goody for at seagulls were at a few different ones smaller ones but Majority were in Dallas. Were in Houston Boston and San Antonio and then Chicago. We plan on going to six new states every a year. You know. It's been an exciting time next year. We'll be in Canada. Also any thank you so much your time. I really appreciate it. We'll catch up with these him. The thanks so much for having me all right our thanks to Eddie Belfour you can pick up Eddie whiskey in Illinois and in Texas. I believe as well well where it's available and Eddie tells us that they're going to be adding ten states every year so emily in six years ears his whiskey will be available in sixty states. It's pretty amazing I just feel like an sat question. It's time time for our favorite segment of the week. Phil Kessel dogs now. He does not love to eat hot dogs. We look at the the end.

"Has taken a lot of heat over the last couple of days but the CBC has taken some some heat is well. They were cherries employer for thirty five out of his thirty nine years on the air. And what are what. Are Your thoughts on that that there have been criticisms directed towards the. CBC here are there was always an uncomfortable when he said you know whether it was anti French. Canadian or anti-european things on the public broadcasters airwaves because they the kind that seem like they have a bit of a higher purpose in terms of what it is that the CBC does so so. It was always uncomfortable. And I'm sure you must have had colleagues felt that way about some of the things he would say and in the years when he was a CBC employees CBC spokesman Chuck Thompson in an interview on Monday. He did admit there were occasions. Certainly when we had the rights to hockey night in Canada when I was in this role and I'd say often through the years That does not speak for He didn't then and he certainly doesn't now. He also said in a statement to us. I just WANNA get your thoughts on That any decisions made regarding Don Cherry Wall. CBC held the National Rights for NHL Hockey were made in the moment on a case by a case basis because none of individuals who made those decisions or with the CBC anymore. It would be unfair of us to speak on their behalf. Yeah I mean that's a fair point can't really hold the president People accountable for what he might have said or not said but having said that the issue with him kind of that built up over his time at C. D. C.. I think it is fair to say was he probably felt somewhat bulletproof because every time he did step in it he was essentially allowed to continue on relatively unscathed and I talked to him a few times and it was fairly clear that he basically had this section of time carved out every week and he was led to say what he wanted. He chose the topics. It wasn't like there was vetting. It wasn't isn't like There was a script that provided with anybody before and say here's the points I'm GonNa Make Bang. There was a real thing. Where Don Cherry felt like Don Cherry was? I'm GONNA say his thing every Saturday night and everyone was fine with that any so to the extent that. CBC played a role in allowing him to build up that that sort of Infallibility he probably felt he had That's the thing where today I think they could probably say you know we should have stepped in a little bit sooner and rain rain demand and and realize that letting him say whatever you want was not necessarily the best thing for obviously for him over the long term. Okay and I just want to know like even even though Rogers produces hockey night in Canada now. CBC eyars So on Monday the CBC Cherries remarks were divisive discriminatory and offensive and and that they respect sports net decision that this was the right time for him to step down. No you mentioned before how this is political right like some of what Don Cherry says some of the more controversial remarks and he makes tap into these political conversations and I spoke earlier today to Bruce Arthur Cohn this at the Toronto Star her about support for Don Cherry and he's been getting a lot of responses from readers with regards to this Colin that he recently wrote which called for Cherry to step down and he says support fell among political lines. I WanNa play you clip of what he had to say. Just get your thoughts. It is striking though not surprising but striking how closely Hughes to political lines. How Oh specifically conservative defenders of Don Cherry are how they used the conservative buzzwords? That you see on the Internet everywhere right like your Sawyer globalist this your snow liberal mouth mouthpiece snowflake and Don's become a symbol of the culture war if he is ejected from hockey night in Canada before for his time. And there's some people that was always before his time he will be seen. As a victim of the the politically correct culture. He will be seen as a symbol full of a real candidate for a lot of people when explicitly like think about what we're talking about. What what what did he say? He separated Canadians into into implicitly. anglo-saxon Canadians who live in small towns and the Brown people who populate our cities. That's the candidate. He is separated good and bad Canadians into okay. So now he's actually been ejected. So this is after this announcement Do you think Bruce has a point here. Yeah I think he does is I'm ready I'm ready to call it. Says Don Cherry. I shouldn't have said what he said and immediately some of the responses will I bet you voted for the Liberals. What what does that have to to do? Everything would ones voting intentions should not be part and parcel of where you come down on. What Don Cherry wearing poppies and immigrant and I think it is true that there is this sort of idea that what he said represents a small C conservative view? But this idea that if you you're criticizing the sizing them then you're just being some super woke liberal. Who just wants to have everything bleed politically correct free speech police? Yeah Yeah I mean look it is free speech. He was allowed to say what he wanted to say. And from a very commercially driven Response which I think link is that probably the sponsors of his segment and the company that employs him realized that they didn't want to be associated with these views anymore to me. That's where this thing has come down. It's it's in fact like a perfectly free market kind of thing. He said his P. C.. Didn't want to apologize for it. And there was a consequence for that. Tell tell me a little bit more about that. Like why do you think this tip the scales for sports net like and the sponsors. Why was this the line who is just really Stark in the divisions that he was making their you know whether he really sat down and thought about it and wanted to kind of put it in quite those sharp terms. Well he's standing behind it. Go that I get fired. I remember my expert. Got The puppy. Yeah well that's what I mean like. And then so whether or not he region originally meant it to be like that the fact that people have obviously gone to them and said here's the problem. It's not aww vote saying I think people should wear poppies. It's about what you said in the you know in the greater part of that conversation in the fact that he hasn't been willing to to acknowledge that the consequence of that is. You can no longer do this job. And we're not going to stand behind you and put you back there next Saturday night to pretend like none of this ever happened. And do you think largely Canadians will be accepting of that. Look I'm not talking about. He's like deeply deeply political people who think that this is a win for snowflakes talking about the people who just see this guy as an icon right like as as an important figure in Canadian history. Maybe they haven't always agreed with his comments but you know he's played an important role in their lives. Do you think they'll they'll accept this. I think ultimately the number of people who watch talking talking candidate regularly and really found themselves glued to whatever it was that dawn had to say on a given. Saturday has dwindled over over time. Because he's a lot of the same old hitch cakes Ontario. Boy Taylor Hall. He is he put the watch the play here dread skull. Just you say sausage US ask and and I don't think he's really added all out to the repertoire. In the last ten fifteen years of his career which is perfectly understandable for somebody who's eighty eighty five. I guess what I'm saying is I don't think there's actually going to be a huge chunk of the viewership deeply misses him but I think people will be disappointed and kind of sad that this is is the way it has ended and I think that's kind of the really unfortunate part of it. The story is that I think there was probably an opportunity to have Don Cherry. Go Out Much more gracefully many years ago And certainly several opportunities where contracts are renewed that they could have just said. You know now's the time..

"I wanted to go back for a second because you know Don Cherry has been in this role for more than thirty years. And can you explain to me. Why was he so popular? I see this is someone who doesn't watch a lot of hockey right like I haven't washed a lot of coaches corner. I know I know but his outfits I know about his controversial comments in the past. But you know what's his appeal. I always kind of look at it. As he became the icon that he was because he was so resolute a his canadianness and the Canadianness of hockey ocoee. He became a guy who always insisted that hockey was our game and the Canadians had certain way of playing it leading score. There is always Canadian. Most of the players on the Stanley Cup champion are only Canadian. The tough prairie boy kind of ideal. Here it was a guy who is unabashedly willing to tell you that you know hockey was Canada's game and we were the best added that nobody else understood the way we did and Jira Swede or a Russian Cassim or even in America and you didn't have the same claim to the game. Canadian did hockey night. In Canada are hockey night. In Russia I'm retired versus how great they are now. Tree won they died. It was a fabulous five dive. They are sack. They always have sucked. We had the hockey hall of fame. We put seventy five percent of the players of the national hockey me and frankly that's a message that I got a lot of people behind him and then he also espouse. There's a particular style of hockey more fighting more physical more. Tough guy thing to to. Let's talk about that because this is also been controversial. Not I want to get into. Some of his controversies in one of them is that he was sort of an unapologetic proponent of fighting days what would happen would be somebody. Grab Robotic Kim. A couple of COPS. They'd have a fight in the over all forgotten but no. You can't do that. Because the instigator something to became more and more difficult to defend defend as we saw like greater evidence connected to like the the detriments of concussion. Jerry was one of the last people to insist that if you removed fighting from the game and if you're moved the really violent collisions that you would somehow lose an integral part of the sport sport and that the game wouldn't be the same anymore and there'd be more people slashing and hooking in those kinds of things because you needed to have fighting as some sort of outlet Gretzky Gretzky says. He has more stickwork on his body in one international game that he does and the whole year of the national hockey. So you're saying fighting. Is what some kind kind of therapeutic value. Supposing you spare me in the groin right. I can't drop my glove straightened out the first time. The referee's not looking experience and and eventually the game kind of legislated that stuff anyway but you could say you know five years ago. He was essentially espousing that the gain should remain a game that allowed players to put their health at significant risk of brain injury and that that in and of itself was Something that I would actually be honest ever really changed his position from there. I let's talk about some of these other controversial moments. He's referred to Quebec Nationalists Weiner's and another point said they don't want our language. Turn the fabric of our nation's apart. Look you don't want to speak English here. You don't want to universities here English in your signs up to tell me more about his history of criticizing french-canadian. There'll be a lot of Comments in the French Canadian media in the coming days saying well bill. It's interesting that we've been saying these things about him for so long and he was allowed to remain on the air as long as he did. So yeah he's been The the French gain thing was kind of part and parcel of the anti-european sentiment often heard him talk yet for for talking about Europeans replacing Canadian hockey players in North American league. They don't they don't fight and they don't score he also frankly has lamented those players. There's in the NHL as well and gone so far as to say things like you can't Win Stanley Cup. If you're captain is not Canadian and and if you don't have to have too many if you're relying too much on on Swedes or Russians as your star players You'll never win and eventually you no. Those things became abjectly not true when teams with Swedes as their captains and Russians as their captains did win the Stanley Cup and like with so many things with these kind of once. He has a strong position on something. He doesn't really soften it right. I I mean speaking of the comments that he made on Saturday night he you know He. He said something like almost thirty years ago to the fifth state back in nineteen ninety. The Canadians are quote ticked off at the foreigners. Coming over earning the dough or just say what I think and I. It's the way I think you can say it's bigotry if you want. I don't think it is. I'm pro Canadian more soul that I'm anti-soviet anti-soviet or I mean this is kind of Dante area. Yeah that angle of I guess what you'd call his his politics have often been fairly fairly buried amid a guy who's generally known for its hockey views. It's been more in recent years where some of that stuff has has come up with a bit more often. He was vocal supporter of former Toronto. Mayor Rob Ford the greatest mayor. This city is ever ever seen as far as I'm concerned and put your pipe. You left wing. koops said that he would have voted for Donald Trump. If he could have done such a thing what am I going to say. I don't like trump. I like trump Alexis. I like his blue-collar Guys that voted for middle class. Guys that worked on construction that so we've seen more in recent years that the Don Cherry three political view is pretty stridently. anti-immigrant type position that you see in well. Frankly which is I guess now a bit more mainstream. Even in today's day and age.

"Well after. Nearly forty years of CO hosting hockey night in Canada's coach's Corner Don Cherry very has been fired. This old comes after comments. He made on Air Saturday. Cherry started going off about people who don't wear poppies on Remembrance Day. I live in Mississauga. Saga nobody wears a very few people. Where pop poppy downtown Toronto? Forget it downtown trying to nobody wears a poppy. kice had this. You go to the small cities and all you know those the rolls unrolls you. People love you either. Come here whatever it. Is You love our way of life. You love or milk and honey at least you could pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like that. These guys pay for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. Condemnation nation was well very swift and after an initial apology a second statement came Monday from Cherries employer. Rogers sports net. This time. They announced he was stepping down today. Scott Stinson a national sports calmness with post media is joining me. We're GonNa Talk Don Cherry and his controversial legacy seen this is from burner heist gone. Hey Jane area good thanks for doing being this estimate. I know it's been a busy day for you okay. So let's her here on Monday afternoon. This statement comes out from the President of sports net brought yobs Lee on twitter and it says sports brings people together unites us not divides US following further discussions with Don Cherry. After Saturday night's broadcast it has been decided it. It is the right time for him to immediately step down and then right after that statement comes out. Toronto Sun Columnist Joe. Warrington says he spoke with Cherry and he's not backing down. Here's the quote. I know what I said and I meant it. Everybody in Canada should wear a poppy to honor. Our fallen. Soldiers are emotional about all this. Or you're okay. This is the way to do it. Let me put this way if you if you could get fired by the Boston. Bruins art okay initial reactions here. Well I was surprised I guess at the speed with which this went down though not. I'm not surprised in the sense of That there was kind of an intractable position. Here what Cherry said the other night. was already like Swiss list. Lead denounced by both sports net. And even by Ron Maclean. Colo's Don Cherry made remarks which were hurtful discriminatory which were flat out wrong. Uh I owe you an apology to. That's the big thing that I want to emphasize I sat. There did not catch. It did not respond so after that happened Yesterday okay being Sunday. It seemed like well. Something's got to give. The either done chair is going to have to apologize or they're going to have to move on and I obviously asleep. He decided he did not WANNA walk back any part of what he said. And so we're left with what we have today. which is that? They're they're moving up just for people who are just coming to this story I just want to Parse through some of Cherries comments briefly. So I on Saturday night. He starts by saying that. The People in Mississauga in downtown Toronto. Don't wear poppies. Don't tell Tronto forget it downtown. Toronto and so what do you make of that. Well I think the implication it is that he's saying there are certain types of people that he doesn't see wearing poppies and when he says people in Mississauga and people in downtown Toronto. I think it's pretty. It clear that he's referring to people of different racial backgrounds and that was emphasized by the new people remark. And the you know who come from wherever. That's where you're going. Oh that's what the Eaton's right. When he went a little bit further in kind of drawing between people from elsewhere in people from here that made clear that he was talking about? And that's where the comments became particularly untenable. You people that come here you love our way of life you lovo milk and honey money at least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies also talked about you know when you go to small cities small towns you see rows upon rows of poppy he is. What did you get from that again? You're sort of going you know he's he's saying with really coming out and saying that people from the suburbs look one way they don't wear where Bobby's but when I go to the small towns you know without actually saying where they're more white. That's where I see now. I just want to add to Jamie like I think. That's a ludicrous. Statement statement from a factual standpoint. Lots of people of any kind of color racial background. Whatever you WANNA say? Immigrants Immigrants who wear popping of course. He's roundly criticized is here right. Like mayor of Mississauga. Bonnie Crombie a mayor of Toronto. John Tory basically re iterating what you just said like. What is this guy talking about? He has no idea what he's talking commode questioning the devotion of newer immigrants to this country. Please apologize to new Canadians. Who are very proud? New Canadians at are also a very proud of the rich history of of our veterans and proud that they came to Canada because of the rights and freedoms we all enjoy. And that's why they chose us and this also struck a chord because so how many people of color including indigenous people have fought for Canada particularly in the first and Second World War. Yeah I mean this is part of where the story is particularly uncomfortable because there are all sorts of examples of people of different backgrounds people different races. Who have had you know? Frankly much more involving Canadian military than Don Cherry ever had and he is he is very much been a spokesman and advocate for them and that is all admirable stuff but the idea That you have to have had some specific in you know frankly if they have a poppy on your sleeve or on your lapel to show your support for the Canadian military. Oh Terry is ludicrous. Because any number of people could have sacrificed their own. Well being put themselves forward have family members doing that kind of thing and can you can be from any background.

What do you think about this, what it means for the country in Toronto? It's mazing. It's huge it it's electrifying. Listen. I grew up in a small town in Brockville, Ontario in Canada, which is forty minutes from L, Montagne -tario, which is where Dr James Naismith invented the game of basketball and I fell in love with it when I was eight years old. I my first sport was soccer. And so, you know, when you're a kid learning history in Canada, you know who James Naismith is important. So it's really such a proud moment for the country, especially when, you know, our national sport is lacrosse, but really it's hockey. Let's be real. You know there's an a household in Canada. That doesn't have the NHL hockey night in Canada on and with Don cherry. Don cherry is, he's the best second you and. Thank you. I it's really cool. Just saying this whole thing. Yeah. Then the representation Kawai Leonard to be so humble and, you know, I'll never forget doors, the great Doris Burke interviewing him and I don't want to be a hero.

I want to be the best team in it can be, you know, and for, you know, superstar giant athlete like that to say it, it's kind of Canadian knows a sense of humility to that. I loved Esa fix up there in Toronto. It's a good fit for for him. A lobbyist nobody knows what he thinks about what's a good fit for him. Everyone thinks he's coming here to, to Los Angeles. And the, the town, I mean, he wouldn't have to apparently he could live rent free and food, free and drink free the rest of his life. They up there in Toronto. And that's not a joke. Like literally, there's a coin in dine, and that there is a sticker and everyb- every window every restaurant. And what was that a three million dollar condo? That, that somebody office. Right. So it's it seems like a good fit up there. Obviously they won the championship. But in sports, you know, rich nothing nothing ever can is a permanent fit. So we'll see what happens. They love them there. I think that anytime you have a guy like that a city embraces a guy like that. And will until he leaves or she leaves so, but it was really cool. I have my mom and my all my family's still in Canada. My mom's texting me details. Like I just wanted to let you know Kevin Durant out.

And I watched the game and it on fixated on it because they are like a scoring machine. And. It's remarkable. Like you could you can take one out and put another in. Repeat didn't even play yesterday. I think and. With Carli Lloyd like you're talking about there were like ten corner, kicks in the I, I don't know. Eight minutes of the game. If that's not forcing the issue a corner, kick is like golden soccer. Right. It's so important, but you have obviously competed at a very high level and a lot of folks made it eight eight an issue with that men wouldn't get the grief that the women's soccer team got for all of their celebrations. And I know that this is they've already played another match. And a lot of people think this is talked about, and over with, but now that you're here on the subject, what did you make of all the celebration conversation? I'm really cool with celebrating the first six seven eight cools. Maybe. Here's the thing Europe. Powerhouse I played for Canada. And we played in the two thousand Sydney Olympics humbly. There were twelve teams we finished eleventh k we we got there. It was important to get there. It's hard to get to that stage to qualify. So it's. The US is at a different level than Thailand. And what, what you often see. And I don't know if people have talked about this part of it. What you often see in games like that thirteen nothing. Which is it's a record right? Doesn't happen. I think Canada Puerto Rico back in the late nineties twenty one to nothing the other team, the Thailand's that they usually get scrappy. And they start injuring you so clap cheers to Thailand for not going there. I don't think that's in their DNA, but a lot of countries may have and taking some low blows in costume injury. So if, if you're the US you're fortunate to leave in some of your superstar players and leave without injury. And you know you've twenty three players in your roster. I think so, you know, you could have made a few more substitution when somebody scores five goals, it's, it's a big deal for them. But I mean it got a little excessive it, it just did. Because. The other part of it riches act appropriately to wear you're supposed to be the US is supposed to dominate that game. Right. So act as if. So I love the celebrations, I also was always taught when I was a kid place with a whistle. And they they play through the whistle. So kudos to them for that I will say, so it it's kind of, you know, you can go back and forth with the conversation. We did Barkley said the same thing you said, which is, you know, kind of like act like you've been there before, and he told stories about that you would take somebody out if they did something like that in the NBA, they would literally you would you'd be taken out. That's what I'm talking about talking about. When I was in college, my senior year, we, we had an amazing team and that bond that you create over the years which is what, you know, the US soccer team has in the US women's basketball team. And they're just dominant and their system is so strong in the way they developed players in Canada's getting there with basketball. Which is awesome. But when you think about that. And I think about my, my senior year in college, we in, in the big twelve conference, I went to Oklahoma. We beat everybody. You know Wednesday Saturday by twenty to thirty points and some teams started to get chippy. I mean I I was injured in a game because of it, but you have to really be cognizant of what the mission is. And if you were supposed to do it or not. Well, Stacey tells you the best you know how I feel about you and I look forward to with the rest of our colleagues gouging, the NFL for free food symposia tomorrow night. Dicey that into a microphone. I look forward to learning with my colleagues about about broadcasting over the next forty eight hours. Good to see you bet. Stacey dales on Twitter and Instagram.

"don cherry" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio
"Aren't apologizing to Don cherry, Bryant Burke, or anyone for that matter. Sometimes boys just wanna have fun. Some teams might have been a little sensitive about being called a bunch of jerks. But is this team that would kind of like, I think we're starting to see your embracing that is that a team that can embrace this. Yeah. I it's people's opinions. I don't know what I don't think anybody in. Here's a jerk. But if they think we're jerks for trying to have fans interact and have fun with winning. And I don't think I think people have thought were mocking teams by doing. And it's it has nothing to do with us mocking any teams. It's just trying to keep our fans engaged and just have fun with them and going forward. I don't think we're changing anything. So we're probably gonna be jerks from here on it began in early October after their first home of the season, Jordan, Martinique and his teammates lined up. Their blue line got the crowd to clap along. Then skated the length of the ice in jumped onto the glass. And the storm surge was born as time went by and winds piled up celebrations became more elaborate, it would have been tough to imagine canes. Coach rod Brindamour. Participating in something like this. When he was a player, but he was completely on board with this. I know it's a huge part of any profession. You got enjoy what you do. And the first thing, you know, that you've got to put in the work if you can find a way to make it somewhat enjoyable, then I think you get more out of I know, you do I mean winning is the number one thing that'll make fun. But I think our guys, but in honest effort, and again, enjoying what you do is certainly important Brindamour Canadian. But he spent the last ten years of his playing career in Raleigh where the games routes aren't quite as deep fans are enjoying the remember that's what we're here to do. They're the ones that pay the salaries, and we have to do things a little different down here.
"don cherry" Discussed on News & Talk 1380 WAOK
"Sports radio. I want to get this before we do depart, Don cherry is a jerk. That's what it is. And what a hypocrite. He is for those of you that have no clue what I'm talking about the Carolina Hurricanes after wins. They do celebrations. And I know Carver high's very plugged into it. Can you explain some of the celebrations that most caught your attention in the ones that you enjoyed the most? Yeah, they've had a couple of thereafter, home games. They obviously do it for the home crowd. They do not do this on the road. Sure. But like the one most recently that caused the stir with Don was they had one player at center ice who pretended to throw a pitch to a player at the blue light. Who then did a bad flip went around the roof win around the rink like he was rounding the bases. And when he got back to the original blue line, all the other players. Were jumping on him. Like they do at home plate after walk off Homer. Great stuff. They've done some this year with a game of thrones theme where one guy kinda puts the sword down in the middle and everybody falls over. They did another with like a bowling ball guy went into the net knocked everybody over they'd be doing these crazy celebrations after every home game when they win. I like the limbo where they had to the Limbaugh doubt, everyone underneath it. And then the mascot got there, and they slandered on his so they've had fun with this all year. And I've understand if it was after a goal it would cause a massive fight and that would be disrespectful to the opponent. But doing it after a game not on the road. Ten tag is the other fan base. Do it at your home fan base? In a sport that needs as much as attention as it could get and talked about as much as it needs to be. Can we take a little easy here? Don cherry, especially when let me just say this done. But if you made your career off of broadcasting being a little bit different wearing the flamboyant suits causing attention to yourself. So you're going to then get all fired up at eighty five years old and call them a bunch of jerks. Basically, you do the same thing as broadcasting as a broadcaster where you do something different. You do something that tries to cause attention. It's very hypocritical by Don cherry. I'll tell you cover my favorite part of it. And I sometimes probably know where he was going because there's a lot of times you're making a point in the producer gets ear and goes in this business Varner or up against break or something like that. And you don't get to fully articulate your point. He starts to bring up Justin Williams, and maybe someone got into the air. But he goes, you know, can you imagine Justin Williams doing this? He's the captain of the team. He's the ringleader in this whole thing jerks. That's a great job. Look at this situation. Where you've got a team that hasn't been good in a long time. They don't draw very well. And they're doing some things that are getting their fans locally excited. So shame on them the other teams gone already. And this is typical Don. And and what I love about this. The most is is that an upset guys. Like, Don, cherry and other members of the Canadian media. I love that it doesn't I love that. It fires 'em up points of jerks, the Canadian hockey media, not not us fans of them. I will say that you're not the only one when I was at a Rangers Canadians series playoff series. The Rangers went to the Stanley Cup final bunch of years ago and mad to hear how they talk about the sports sometimes I like hockey guy makes you want to throw up, but some of the entitlement that some of those members of the media. Thank you know, they have. But anyway, they created a bunch of jerks shirt the Carolina Hurricanes. I'll tell you. My hockey team sucks. This year. To the elation of Carver high because I'm a ranger fan. Dumped the Carolina Hurricanes as the team that I hope does while the rest of the white because of this there on fire right now, and they're wearing a bunch of jerks shirts. This could be the next underdog story in sports for the patriots big underdog Carver high. You know that right? The big dog. The next underdog the Carolina Hurricanes. The last time they were like relevant when Laviola that coach. They won the Cup in. I forget if those sex in the middle middle things. Oh 506 right around there. I forget the exact year they beat the Oilers in the Stanley Cup final. So there you go Don cherry not a big fan, though. Those. Terrible disgraceful jerks from the Carolina Hurricanes. How dare they celebrate? How dare they have some fun. How dare they actually enjoy their job? And celebrate a victory on the ice with the fun celebration bunch of jerks. But I wonder what Don thanks when the Rangers go to center ice after winning raised their six this loot the crowd or when the islander fans do the. Yes. Yes. Yes. Chan. Is that a jerk move as well? Or is it just because these guys take it to a different level and actually make a headline and have a little bit fun with it. But that's fine. Don could wear his flamboyant suits, Don can act like a fool on the broadcast talking about hockey. But it's all good. It's all good. You don't wanna upset a dinosaur like that God forbid, you have a little fun and trying to get more people to pay attention to your team. And we're not gonna play the audio. I don't even over Cam. But Amos like crying. He was crying almost brought him to tears, even if you don't like, it, would this be something I cry over..
