09:19 AM ET 10.16 | A contrite Don Cherry finally apologized to three former NHL tough guys Saturday for disparaging them for their views on fighting in hockey. Cherry apologized to Stu Grimson, Chris Nilan and Jim Thomson after he called them "pukes" and "turncoats??? on the first broadcast of CBC's "Coach's Corner" of the season last week. He also said he was wrong to suggest that Nilan and Grimson linked fighting in hockey to drug use.

Looked like the CBC whacked his pee-pee.

Someone at the CBC's legal department probably explained to him the ramifications from the legal brief he got from Grimson's firm.

And we take another step towards the sterilization and pussification of the western world...

Must have been a tough pill to swallow for Mr. Cherry.

Yep. Pretty soon the jackets will be gone and he'll be wearing a Mr. Rodgers' cardigan.

He is just your typical right-wing nutcase who is so used to only listening to his own airheaded assertions and hanging out with other white supremacists that he shocked to learn that not everyone else is a nutcase. Yeah, a week later and he's as apologetic as that nutcase Hank Williams Jr.

Many of the Vancouver Canuck fans don't seem to have a problem with it I've noticed.

I heard last night, during the Leafs come from behind triumph over Calgary, that one of the Sedin Sisters is holding the current record for the 2nd longest 'iron man' streak in the NHL. Kinda makes you want to boo and laugh at the same time...in fact I did.
It was easy too. ;-) :-(

I especially liked the part at the end where he goes on to lay on the tremendous and repeated accolades to Asham for admitting he made a mistake after that fight and doing it in front of 2 million viewers. Hmmmm...I pretty sure that Ron's hands were both in front of him...so just who's hand was that patting Cherry's back...LOL
Anyways, you said what needed to be said Don...so now we can all move on...until the next time.
Go Leafs Go. :-)

Passing wind is usually followed by an excuse me.
