Fans React to Don Cherry Airtime Cuts

(SNN) - Don Cherry recently went public with his complaints that his airtime has been occasionally cut back to just five minutes a night in his job as a political commentator who talks about hockey sometimes.  As expected, his legion of fans flooded social media  with their opinions.

For example, Stephen H. in Ottawa claimed in a lengthy post on the Conservative Party of Canada Facebook page, “Don Cherry is the closest thing to a positive Conservative role model for our children and our nation. Though a bit of a tactless buffoon, Cherry still embodies the virtues of conservativism such as over-zealous patriotism, excessive use of force to achieve ones ends and seemingly apparent xenophobia.”

Eldon from Edmonton tweeted, “Don Cherry is my hero. Although he talked about coaching a lot more than he ever coached, I liked his suits.”

Justin T from Quebec tweeted, “It is nice Rogers is maintaining the policy of hiring the mentally challenged for their NHL programs.”

Paul from PEI, posted a seven-second “Vine” micro-movie of a bosomy blonde in a tiny bathing suit who is shrugging her shoulders while saying, “Who the hell is Don Cherry?”. The vine has already garnered 3 million ‘loops’.

G. Stroumboulopoulos  of Toronto tweeted. “While he is well regarded in the commentator field, I think this is a bad fit for NHL telecasts. Oh wait, that’s me.”

Health Canada issued a statement on their Facebook page that they had concerns about Mr. Cherry’s ‘best before date’ having passed and consumers should think twice about digesting his “nuggets of wisdom”.
