What do you think, marcag? My wife and I watched the clip that got him canned and couldn't figure out what he did wrong.

I am not sure what clip you saw, there are a few that are missing a few seconds at the beginning.

His message should have been all of us need to appreciate what the veterans did for us and we should all buy and wear a poppy.

What he said was immigrants come here, enjoy our way of life and don't show respect for the vets that gave us this way of life.

It's not an immigrant thing. It's educating people about what happened. A lot of "born in Canada" kids don't know about it, some immigrants don't know about it. So they don't wear a poppy.

He singled out immigrants. He apparently was given the opportunity to correct his message and refused to do so.

He caused a big stink a few years ago when he said that Fench Canadians and Europeans were sissies because they wore visors. French Canadians went nuts and the uber liberals said he was sending the wrong message to kids. Kids see him as a clown.

I remember him best from this era

He makes his cameo appearance at the end :-)

I'd guess 70% of Canadians are glad to see him go.

I think it's a show. Deep down he is a really good person. But he is putting on a show. But he is past his expiry date. Time to take him off the shelf.

Yeah, that's a bit more in-depth than what I saw.  I think sports guys should just do sports......they end up in trouble when they stray.  On the other hand......it's still a bunch of folks getting offended over nothing in my book.  I guess I'll just never understand it.

I think Sportsnet was looking for a way to reduce their expenses by $1M per year :-)

Yeah, I'll buy that.......I can see how Cherry was probably wearing thin on a new generation of hockey fans.
