Why Don Cherry is a Complete Idiot

March 2, 2008 at 11:23 am 20 comments

We just came upon this little gem and decided that we really don’t have to add much to it since Don makes such an excellent case for being a complete idiot all by himself.

Yes, we know, Don. You would like the World Cup to be called the Canada Cup and have it played between Canada A and Canada B. In case it needs a couple more teams to fill it out throw Canada C and Canada D in there as well.

Why does hockey even have international tournaments? Where do all these foreigners get off playing a game invented in Canada anyway? (This is to be said with a tone of rightful indignation).

After all, Don would rather watch a game between a team of Canadian plumbers versus a team of Canadian lumberjacks. Preferably wearing one of Don’s suits and no pants. That would be far more exciting.

    I thought I was a bad hockey fan for not being completely enamored of Don Cherry.

    I wish Don would let the other guy open his mouth sometimes because that one actually has a brain.

    Hey, I’m Canadian and I don’t understand Don Cherry…, he’s a MORON and totally unpatriotic despite his own claims to being SO patriotic.. he’s a anglo-ontarian pig farmer lover that is ignorant towards any other people/culture that isn’t english… I love Russian hockey, I am a habs fan and we love ANY hockey.. we are hockey fans NOT Toronto/Leaf/English fans like Don Cherry… I wish Toronto would sell their team to Moscow so we can have 30 pro teams instead of 29… As a true canadian (being french/english and eager to learn more languages) I agree to everything on this article… and some.. I think CBC is disgracing the true purpose of what Quebecers were trying to do hundreds of years ago when they created Canada, which is to be OPEN.. not just open-minded… to all others of world… canada is the world’s nation.. not english whites…Go habs Go! and THANK YOU KOVALEV and ALL others from Europe that play for the montreal canadiens, canada’s team and therefore the world’s team…

    Jealous because Canada smokes the rest of the world like a fat Cuban cigar when it comes to the glorious game of hockey?

    Don knows hockey, no matter which why you try to cut it.

    • 6. Harleys a fag  |  January 26, 2013 at 11:45 pm

      LOL, you’re such a fucking idiot if you think anything Don Cherry says is legit. He knows nothing of hockey, he’s just an ignorant old fucking idiot.

  • 7. russianhockey  |  May 4, 2008 at 12:34 pm

    Well said, yx_secord.

    Mr. Harley. As a fan of Russian hockey I don’t have anything to be jealous of. Have a look at this year’s NHL stats to see who the top scorers are.

    Also, you did not address the article or the video at all, but wrote some general nonsense that has nothing to do with anything.

    I stand by my original claim – Don Cherry is an idiot. I didn’t dispute his knowledge of hockey. Unfortunately, his mind is clouded with xenophobic garbage so he’s completely unable to be objective which makes a lot of his opinions down right stupid and unsupported by any evidence.

    I don’t have anything against Canadian hockey. I just think Don Cherry is an idiot. Which he is.

    Being an ex coach Cherry knows hockey yes but they give him a tribune where no opposition is offered and with age I think he’s starting to lose it. I think he should be sent back to the 50s where he belongs once we get the technology.

  • 9. Will  |  March 1, 2009 at 1:56 pm

    I used to like Don Cherry and his no-nonsense style….HOWEVER, last nights HNIC comments about AO were over the top. First, the guy is not only excited about his own goals, but about every goal that is scored for his team. That is the way he plays. Pesonally, I think it is a treasure for anyone to love the game and express their love for the game as much as Alex does. Alex has more talent in his thumbnail than Cherry ever did.
    Second, Cherry advocated someone take Alex’s legs out, essentially trying to “put a hit” on him. That is bushleague, not only does Cherry bend over to praise Sid on a regular basis, but it is just another example of Cherry’s fear of all things Russian.

    P.S. Buy a real suit, it looks like a box of crayons threw up on you.

    I’m canadian and I hate Don Cherry with a passion. That being said, I actually agreed with him on the AO thing and I base that solely on just knowing that whenever anybody jumped around like that against my team I’d be pissed off. It’s fine when you’re scoring your first career goal or maybe a milestone goal but when you’ve already scored over 200 in your career and you’re still doing that….it’s a bit much. Still, AO is obviously the best player in the game and I’d still take him over Crosby any day of the week. Me and my friends will watch coaches corner just because we’re waiting for him to go over the top so they can finally fire him

    @ brian

    Hey. I strongly disagree with you, however I’ve already written extensively on this issue in the comments section here under the name ranndino (if you care to read my opinion in full):

    Here I will only say that agree with most commenters on there and was glad to see that most Canadians think as I do. IMO, he already went too far and should be fired, but he’s not gonna be. It’s pathetic what kind of garbage he’s allowed to spew about Russian and European players. Had he said something like that about a black player (basically insinuating that Ovie should be taken out) he’d fired.

    There’s nothing wrong with celebrating goals in a game as emotional as hockey is and players have done it for ages (back when Tiger Williams used to ride his stick like a horse after scoring). Don is just a xenophobic piece of shit who found something to complain about in regards to Ovechkin simply because he’s Russian. Ovie is a player everyone should model themselves after. He celebrates not to showboat, but out of genuine excitement. Maybe a showboat like Cherry can’t understand that.

    People who have a problem with his celebrations must lead very sad, boring lives. Don Cherry is a complete hypocrite for doing so because he’s nothing, but attention whore with his ridiculous suits and equally ridiculous opinions.

    BTW, Crosby who complained about Ovie’s celebrations in the piece shown during Coach’ Corner did the exactly same thing a couple of games later (jumping into the glass Ovie style). Another hypocrite.

    Lastly, the celebrations they showed were from some of the biggest and most exciting goals that Ovie scored, a few from previous seasons. All of these goals were either OT game winners or coast to coast incredible rushes. It was completely disingenuous to show those as proof that Ovie does it every time, but then again I’d expect nothing else from a loudmouth, pathetic, hypocritical cockroach like Cherry.

    don cherry is an ignoranus. always been anti anything , but white anglo phone. has always disliked the euro influence, when it suits him. disliked anything franco phone, when it suits him.
    just for the record, he trashed pavel bure when he played here in vancouver. he will never endorse alex o.
    if a player like ovechkin, whos is by miles the most exciting hockey player today, who works his ass off every shift, who helps raise a very mediocre capitals club to prominence in the nhl, cant celebrate after a goal in his own fashion, the league will lack the briliant colour of its shining stars.
    we are very passionate in canada about the game. we enjoy the history between canada and russia in the game. anfortunately, we have a couple of dummies like cherry that do nothing but disrespect others and spew thier garbage over the airwaves.

  • 13. -a  |  March 22, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    i wish they would take cherry off tv. He is a moron and a shame to all of Canada. He is a sexist racist prick. And the other douche is like his bitch.

    F*ck you Cherry.

  • 14. Albert  |  February 21, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    I am a proud Canadian and I love this country. I think Canada is still the greatest hockey nation on earth and also one of the best countries in the world to live in. At the same time I HATE Don Cheery – he is a bigoted moronic ASSHOLE who makes Canada look like a bunch of rednecks. Why cant we just get rid of this piece of caca and retire his ass once and for all?

  • 15. randy martin  |  May 15, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    Don Cherry is an idiot and whats up with him still pulling for boston when he is working for hockey night in CANADA. are you guys retarded. Get rid of that pc of shit

  • 16. JMH  |  March 6, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    Don Cherry and Mike Milbury would fit in well at Fox News.

  • 17. Michael Donald MacDonell  |  May 25, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    Tell Don Cherry to retire now so we don’t have to listen to his xenophobic comments about hockey players not from canada. Some of the european hockeys are very good and rate up there with canadian hockey players. He bitches about european players coming over here and taking jobs from canadian players. In the fifties and sixties canadian players were playing in europe and taking positions away from european players. So what the hell is the idiot bitching about. I lived in Germany from 1954 to 1958 and France from 1966 to later in 1966. I also think the french are a bunch of losers!!

  • 18. Georges  |  May 5, 2013 at 5:49 am

    Not being a hockey fan, just someone who likes to watch, Don Cherry is worse than an idiot, but a simpleton. He makes absolutist statements and thinks increasing his voice will make his point more valid. Even in the realm of chimps, they wouldn’t like to hear someone yell.

  • 19. Marie  |  February 10, 2016 at 11:55 am

    Don Cheery is a moron. I am a Canadian and my father and I change the channel as soon as “Coach’s Corner” comes on because we both want to vomit. He’s an embarrassment.

  • 20. Germany Guy  |  May 11, 2016 at 7:26 pm

    Don Cheery is possibly the stupidest person in the world. He is a total and complete moron.
