Sportsnet's Don Cherry firing was a long time coming - 2019-11-11
Don Cherry was a divisive voice on one of Canada's most popular television program for decades. The former coach started appearing on Hockey Night in Canada in 1980, and held down his Coach's Corner post (opposite Ron MacLean) from 1987 until today.
He was let go for xenophobic comments that he decided to being with "You people", though it's probably fair to say that his refusal to apologize for said comments also played a hefty role.
Simply put, it was way past time for Cherry to go.
Anyone who watched him on Coach's Corner during the past—oh I dunno, at least 15 years—did not take a single sensible thing away from the broadcast.
