Don "I'm no Pinko, just a Raging Idiot" Cherry waxes eloquent again

Mayor Ford's favorite Man in Pink gives us all the fruits of his wisdom...

Hockey commentator Don Cherry sparked more controversy and a flurry of opinion on social media sites after accusing three former NHL enforcers of being "pukes" and "hypocrites" for speaking out against fighting.

Speaking on the season opener of CBC's Coach's Corner, Cherry criticized Brendan Shanahan, the National Hockey League’s vice-president of safety, for the suspensions he handed out during the pre-season. Cherry lamented that Shanahan's crackdown would prompt players to be less aggressive on the ice out of fear of hitting someone and being suspended.

Cherry also slammed those who oppose fighting, saying they had exploited the deaths of former NHLers Derek Boogard, Rick Rypien and Wade Belak.

"You people that are against fighting, you should be ashamed of yourselves," Cherry said. "You took advantage of that to make your point on fighting."
