Don Cherry is once again grabbing headlines for his “Coaches Corner” segment.

On Sunday, Sportsnet issued a statement where they apologized for Don Cherry’s disparaging remarks during his segment on Hockey Night in Canada.

"Don's discriminatory comments are offensive and they do not represent our values and what we stand for as a network. We have spoken directly with Don about the severity of this issue and we sincerely apologize for these divisive remarks," read the statement from Bart Yabsley, president of Sportsnet.

With tomorrow being Remembrance Day, Cherry ranted about people who immigrate to Canada apparently not purchasing enough poppies to show their support for those who battled to keep their new home country free.

"You people that come here, you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like that," Cherry said.

"These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada."

This is not the first time that the longtime host of the widely popular “Coaches Corner” has gone off topic from the sport of hockey and has got himself into some hot water. However, it might be time for some constraints placed on the 85-year old former NHL head coach to where he needs to keep his topics on the game of hockey itself.

It’s time to move on from letting him have free reign about talking about stuff away from the game. Focus on the sport and the issues at hand.

I can say I am not a huge Don Cherry fan but I do respect that he is a huge supporter of military personnel that keep us safe, however, his comments continually put a divide between people, and I am not talking about hockey fans of teams.

Yes, we live in a country where your have freedoms and you have the right to freedom of expression, but by dividing people because of where they are from or the colour of their skin is not acceptable.

While it appears that Cherry will not face any disciplinary action from his comments on Saturday night, there are many calling for his removal and calling for co-host Ron MacLean, who was seen nodding with apparent approval to the comments, to issue an apology.

There are many people out there pushing stories about how the game is growing and that it is for everybody, but almost every Saturday night that message gets undercut by Cherry. Force him to talk about hockey only or it is time to let him retire.
