Don Cherry sacked for non PC talk

This is beyond belief . . . . the elder statesman of hockey gets the Left Foot of Fellowship for his comments on HNIC about immigrants not honoring Remembrance Day.

I happen to agree with Grapes!!!!!!!

This better not damage the relevancy of my avatar.

Honestly it's pretty funny that this particular comment is the straw that broke the camel's back for Mr. Canada-First himself.

I hate the *fargin'* PC police. I don't like Cherry either, but *f-bomb* political correctness and *f-bomb* social justice warriors.

Unfortunately they have to fight wars in both English and French, so they both declare war and surrender at the same time.

I would have preferred he died on air. I didn't want the SJW's to win. And if they replace him with Brian Burke, then cancel culture only prolonged the retardation instead of letting it die with him.

He said he noticed the immigrants weren’t wearing poppies which is kind of hilarious in itself because how did he know they were immigrants, eh? Feels like a bit racist there.

I think the network should just do whatever makes them the most money. If the people still liked the old coot, fine. But I suspect he was played.

Seems like this was just a great reason for the to finally cut bait. I admittedly din't watch any of his stuff, so I have no idea what he was like and if he provided any useful or insightful commentary on the game in recent years.

My draft dodging relatives didn't flee to Canada just to have to honor the forced conscription of young men into a pointless and evil war that ultimately caused global fascism.

I don't know how the sport can survive without his racist rants.
