08:22 AM ET 10.04 | First, Dallas Eakins wanted it known that he was a fan of Don Cherry's -- then he called Grapes out. [Eakins said] he'd never seen Cherry at a Marlies game or practice. Then he took a shot at Cherry's Twitter account, from which Cherry had lambasted the Leafs on their handling of [Nazem Kadri]. "He's a strong-willed guy; I'm sure he believes in everything that he had somebody type for him," Eakins told TSN Radio at Marlies training camp. "I invite Don to come on down, You're more than welcome at any time. You've got a lot of fans here. We'd be honoured to have him. ... I've never ever seen him at one of our games and I've never ever seen him at a practice and he's never come in and knocked on my door."

Be very careful Mr. Eakins or we'll see "Don Does Dallas."

He's the coach of the To***to Marlies and probably still pissed that Burkie hired his old bum-buddy instead of him.

There's always a long line at Dallas' door. That's why Grapes can't wait to knock on it.

but be that as it may, he has a point. Probably lends more credence when you actually speak from knowing

Grapes was talking about how To***to (Rotten Ronnie, Burkie, and now Dallas Eakins) have treated Kadri in the media. You don't need to stand behind the glass for that.

Hes inviting him over for what ?? So he can be ripped face to face ?? He thinks Don wont have the balls to say it to his face ?? HA. Think again.

And, Cherry has some free time now and just might take him up on the invitation. What a YouTube video that encounter would be.

Toronto Marlboros....They name a team after a cigarette then dump on a kid who shows up at camp wearing a few extra pounds . There is something seriously wrong with that town.

So, the 'no-nookie' shirt. Mine used to have the old poker shirt. Wore it backwards.
