Don Cherry has to go

  Don Cherry has to go For hockey’s culture to better itself, it needs to move on from one of its figureheadsThere’s probably very little that I could write about Don Cherry’s career that you haven’t read before. He’s a fan of “old school”, rough and tumble hockey. He’s unapologetic about his abrasive opinions and his loud suits. He’s an unabashed homer for the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs. He’s said some highly controversial things over the years, and your mileage will vary as to how much you love or hate what he has to say. I’m not breaking new ground here, and I’m not particularly interested in re-litigating all of the little battles that have been fought over the years.

The 85-year-old will release a podcast called " Grapevine ," Cherry told the Toronto Sun's Joe Warmington. Cherry was fired by Sportsnet last week for making offensive comments about immigrants during "Coach's Corner" on Nov.

After being fired by Sportsnet for his comments during his previously weekly ‘Coach’s Corner’ segment, Don Cherry has decided to create a new podcast , called ‘ Grapevine ,’ according to Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun. The plan is to release it every Monday, according to Don’s son, Tim Cherry .

Don Cherry will soon have a new platform.

The 85-year-old will release a podcast called "Grapevine," Cherry told the Toronto Sun's Joe Warmington.

Cherry was fired by Sportsnet last week for making offensive comments about immigrants during "Coach's Corner" on Nov. 9.

"You people that come here, you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like that," Cherry said.

Cherry will address his dismissal during the first episode of his new 30-minute show, which will air Tuesday.

"But that's not all we talked about," Cherry said, according to Warmington. "We are talking hockey, of course. It's going to be terrific. In this one, I am talking about The Rocket (Maurice Richard), one of the all-time greats."

The podcast will drop every Monday during the hockey season and will feature his son, Tim, and his grandson, Del, as co-hosts.

Cherry had a television show from 1982 to 1993 called "The Grapevine," stemming from his nickname "Grapes."
