Hockey commentator Don Cherry says that the network that shot him "made it impossible" for him to address the comments that led to his dismissal.
He says on his new podcast that he was unwilling to accept the terms of Sportsnet to get him back after his "Coach's Corner" segment on "Hockey Night in Canada" on November 9.

Cherry says "two little words just seemed to put on everyone." The 85-year-old broadcaster made comments that many considered critical of immigrants for not having reminders of poppies. Cherry used the phrase "you people." He claims he did not expel minorities.
Cherry says he was willing to explain the comment but did not apologize. He was dismissed November 11.
