Do you think Peters and Cherry should be out of hockey because of racism?

    Absolutely. The NHL needs to grow the game beyond the older base, and that means people who aren't WASPs.

    Cherry overstayed his welcome by at least a decade. In the last ten plus years, he said little about hockey, most of which was wrong, and which showed that he knew little to nothing about the sport beyond 1988.

    And, what Peters said was still SO wrong even back on 2009.

    Yes to both. Hockey has no room for such bigotry and nor does humanity in 2019.

    Peters- Lost his job, and likely will never coach again in the NHL. I think it's safe to say he got his karma for being racist towards other players.

    Cherry- What he said was ignorant, but not racist. Did he insult another culture? No. Did he make snide remarks no? Did he make fun of other cultures apperances? No. He said something ignorant, CBC took it too far by firing him IMO.

    Don Cherry is out, as for Peters, I don't think he is, but he might be.

  • Cherry should have been let go years ago. I'm old enough to remember when Cherry ran the Mississauga Ice Dogs (before they moved to Niagara) and refused to have non-Canadian players on his team (he was so successful they won 3 games their first year...in a 68 game schedule). This is who he is. We all tolerated it because he was old cranky grandpa and we just sort of accepted it. Here's the thing: he never really brought much to the table and he'd make the same rants every week.

    Peters is done. You can't run "hockey is for everyone" when a head coach uses racial slurs in front of an Afro-Canadian player.

    No. They should be out for all the other shi­t that theyve done. For the past 2 decades cherry has just been a rambling geriatric idiot that was never good enough to play more than one game in the nhl
