85 year old hockey commentator Don Cherry is out of Coach’s Corner following televised remarks where he claimed new immigrants don’t wear poppies and implied they are not supporting our veterans by not spending a bit of pocket change for a poppy and wearing it.

“Following further discussions with Don Cherry after Saturday Night’s broadcast, it has been decided it is the right time for him to immediately step down,” Sportsnet president Bart Yabsley said in a statement. “During the broadcast, he made divisive remarks that do not represent our values or what we stand for.”

(So SportsNet doesn’t stand for freedoms of speech or supporting a member of their team for supporting our veterans)   

Cherry, 85, made the comments during his weekly “Coach’s Corner” segment on “Hockey Night in Canada” that sparked fierce condemnation from the public, politicians and the National Hockey League.

“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. “These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price.”

“I have just learned I’ve been fired by Sportsnet for comments made on Coach’s Corner Nov. 9,” said Cherry. “No problem.”

The Sun went on to report that Cherry felt hurt after being fired on Remembrance Day, “because I would have liked to continue doing Coach’s Corner.”

“The problem is if I have to watch everything I say, it isn’t Coach’s Corner.”

Cherry also said: “To keep my job, I cannot be turned into a tamed robot.”
