There’s never a dull moment in the life of Don Cherry. On Saturday, the typically controversial commentator opened his Coach’s Corner segment by addressing Duncan Keith’s sexist comments with a sexist comment of his own.
“My good buddy and a good friend of mine, Duncan Keith, is in a little trouble in Vancouver.” said Cherry. “And the reason was, he was smarty to a female reporter. He just said something about you should be a referee or something, and the males — she didn’t say anything — but the male reporters went a little nuts. Now he’s a sexist and all that stuff. I don’t believe — and I really believe this — I don’t believe woman should be in the male dressing room.”
“I remember the first time it happened to me. Guys are walking around naked and I hear this woman’s voice, I turn around and there’s a woman and she’s asking me about the power play. I say let’s go outside and she says she’s not embarrassed, and I say I am.”
Go figure, Cherry making a Cherry comment.
I’m embarrassed by and for Don Cherry and for CBC. Sorry.
