Similarly to Ron MacLean, his former Coach's Corner co-host Don Cherry is an equally as polarizing figure. The former NHL Coach and analyst is either loved or hated, and he wouldn't have it any other way. After being fired by Sportsnet, Cherry has continued with his own Grape Vine podcast and continued to share his thoughts on the game.

Many people have spoken out about their relation with Cherry, but after his name trended online, Tara Slone felt she also needed to chime in on the matter. Slone previously partnered with MacLean on the since cancelled Roger's Hometown Hockey.
Slone took to her Twitter account to share he feelings on Cherry.
I see Don Cherry is trending yet again. I have never weighed in, but I want to now.

I like(d) Don as a person, because like many of us, he wasn't just one thing. But I loathed his perspective, more and more as the years went by.

He sort of tolerated Hometown Hockey, but was jealous of Ron's other job/co-host. He thought we were soft and woke and focussed on too much outside of hockey. HTH wasn't for everyone, so that didn't bother me.

He had some good points, probably, once upon a time. He has tons of charisma, which is why he stayed on air for so long. But this incessant and nostalgic elevating of Don as some figure who we should look to as a hockey and political leader? Come ON.

I like him, I really do. I hope he is healthy and doing well. But he is a bigot and had no place on national television with a national platform. It wasn't the poppy incident, it was everything he proclaimed over 3 decades. Come. On. Stop with the deification.

Do you agree with Slone or is she just bitter about the cancellation of her own show?
