08:36 AM ET 04.05 | The CBC is in pullback mode. The austerity axe chopped deep into the CBC's budget Wednesday, and will result in "a very different public broadcaster" CBC president Hubert Lacroix said. ... CBC sports coverage, especially of hockey, will be maintained, [executive vice-president of CBC's English services Kirstine Stewart] added. "(Sports coverage) actually gives us a margin of profitability that we then invest in other programming," she said. "We are very committed to a relationship with NHL." Stewart would not say whether Hockey Night in Canada's Coach's Corner segment -- which reportedly pays controversial host Don Cherry upwards of $800,000 -- will be chopped.

LOL! And when I see those suits, I always ask myself "who shot the couch?"

I doubt they'll cut Cherry....unless his salary is THAT much of an issue, and then only if he isn't willing to rework his contract....he's too popular a figure I would think to assume he'll be cut at this point.

Agreed. By the way. Take it easy on us tonight. God, has it come to this? Begging for points on a T&R thread. I have no pride left. Wouldn't surprise me to be sleeping on a grate with a bag of pucks soon..........................

Oh god no....my mom had a paisley covered couch when I was a kid that was cringe-worthy....but no, if any of my furniture looked like that, I'd drag it outside and set it on fire!

Irkenstein would rather whine from afar.

And I'm glad you referenced "Lord of the Flies". Now you'll get Hank all fired up.
