Days after hockey icon Don Cherry was sacked for comments during a Coach's Corner segment, NHL legend Bobby Orr is standing behind his long-time friend. "What they've completed to him up there would possibly be disgraceful".
Cherry was sacked Monday by NHL rights holder Sportsnet after he singled out new immigrants for not honouring Canada's veterans and fallen soldiers in a Coach's Corner segment, which runs during the first intermission on Hockey Night in Canada.
"You people ... you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that", Cherry said Saturday. "These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price". "These guys paid the largest ticket".
The legendary blue-liner came to the 85-year-old's defense Thursday.
Le nouveau salaire XXL de Verratti — PSG
J'entends toujours de gens qui me disent "pourquoi tu ne tentes pas une autre expérience?" J'ai toujours envie d'aider l'équipe. Et dans le même temps, son agent, Mino Raiola , a fait du bon boulot, avec une grosse revalorisation salariale pour son client.
Cherry was sacked on Monday by Sportsnet, which stated that it did not want to be associated with the "divisive remarks" that Cherry made on air.
As many people are aware by now, Cherry was sacked by Sportsnet, on Remembrance Day of all days, because he made comments about poppies, saying that in his opinion there are a lot of people who don't wear them, especially in big urban centres like Toronto, and he particularly urged immigrants to show their gratitude to Canada by wearing a poppy. He wasn't centring his remarks on offending immigrants, but it was taken that way, and Rogers Sportsnet reacted in the most inappropriate way imaginable, firing him on Remembrance Day.
Montreal Canadiens forward Max Domi wouldn't say if he agreed with Sportsnet's decision, but was quick to express admiration for a man he calls a family friend. "Don Cherry is a good man and to do this to him is disgusting". "I always have, always will", Domi said, on Tuesday after the team's morning skate.

"He's very good to the veterans, the police, the firefighters, minor hockey players and fans".
So does the Coach's Corner audience, said Orr. It's unfortunate what happened.
Orr's words carry a lot of weight in the hockey world in Boston, where he won a pair of Stanley Cups while revolutionizing the game, and all over Canada, where he's still revered as the greatest hockey player of all time. "They all know what he meant and I know what he meant". "I think everyone would wish something like this didn't happen and didn't come to these types of circumstances".
