7:58 P.M. ‘ Senile old uncle ‘ ?!!! …

Immediately following Cherry’s rant ( On Thursday night’s Coaches Corner ) … Which set off a firestorm across social networking websites , Nilan also quickly took to Twitter to defend himself …

‘ I guess those who can’t play coach , or just had a show called Coach’s Corner … Pretty sad he has to say that to get ratings … Guess he sees the writing on the wall … With CBC losing market share to Bell and TSN ‘ …

*MORBNOTE ; Well Chris … Don did win top rookie honours when he PLAYED … And I believe his name resides on the Jack Adams trophy ( awarded to the outstanding coach of the season ) … Just how many ‘ individually earned ‘ awards is your name on ?!!! …

Also notice how Chris brings it back to the money printing business , rather than a statement of the ‘ sport ‘ …

Don’s always been opinionated … Many times he’s wrong … Gets facts blurred … Ron has to correct him …

BUT HE HAS A POINT !!! … There’s quite a few guys that have never had the skills to make it to the NHL … Where ‘ minimum wage ‘ is somewhere around HALF A MILLION A SEASON !!! … Too many teams … Bad markets ( THANKS BETTMAN !!! )… But they are there because of the so called ‘ entertainment value ‘ …

I , for one , would thoroughly enjoy watching two skilled teams playing HOCKEY … And not watch these staged fights that the league thinks sells the game … The hits that have caused concussions and cast a light on this topic are at center stage now because there are too many individuals trying to do what ever they can to stay in a spotlight ( and enjoy paycheques that they otherwise would have no hope of actually EARNING ! ) that they never had any business being there in the first place … The fighting and ‘ dirt ‘ does appeal to certain morons , but didn’t they invent WWF for those cretins ?!!! … It is not required for TRUE hockey fans … Those playoff battles between Edmonton and Calgary in the mid eighties were something to watch !! … Very few moments of nonsense because there was too much at stake … The Habs ( AND I HATE THE HABS !!! ) put on a show of HOCKEY in the seventies …

But Cherry was just stating plain observations ( From HIS point of view of course !!! ) … About that particular aspect of the ‘ business ‘ …

Why all these writers have jumped on the bandwagon to get rid of him … When he has been a BIG part of that machine that ‘ sells ‘ the game … So that players can be millionaires … Owners can be MULTI millionaires … ( And Don scores some bucks too !!! ) … Is more over the top than Don callin’ a few overpaid bums ( that couldn’t handle themselves when no other team wanted them ! ) … ‘ pukes ‘ , ‘ turncoats ‘ and ‘ hypocrites ‘ …

Now these individuals want to involve LAWYERS !!! … To see what they can stir up !!! … And we all know what that means !!! … IT’LL GO ON AND ON AND ON !!! … Because lawers don’t get paid by a set contract … They charge an absurd figure HOURLY and put forth their greatest effort to make it last as MANY HOURS AS THEY CAN MAKE IT LAST !!! … Thereby , the Stu Grimsom’s and the Chris Nilan’s and the like , will MAYBE !!! get an apology forced out of the ‘ senile old man ‘ … But the lawyers will have a nice big FAT BILL to hand them afterward …

GOTTA GAS UP THE B’MER AFTER ALL !!! …

The only reason CBC is seeing it’s viewership and PROFITS decline … Is the fact that the Leafs and Habs haven’t been worth watching for a good number of years !!!! …
