    Don Cherry finally got fired? My question is: what the hell took so long?

    Cherry is saying he wasn't talking about visible minorities but immigrants like the Scots or Irish or English.

    If you aren't going to admit where you went wrong, at least have some balls and stand behind what you said instead of twisting it into something that it's not.

    What he SHOULD have said was every Canadian should not be a cheap ass and buy a poppy to support our vets but honestly I could care less about him

    He was talking about immigrants, regardless of the type. "You people, you come here or whatever..."

    I won't miss him. Never liked him.

    What he should have said was something about the hockey game, or hockey.

    I can't remember the last time he said something insightful about hockey.

    At best he's a senile xenophobic.
