November of 2023 will mark the four year anniversary of the end of Don Cherry and Coaches Corner on Hockey Night in Canada. The segment was a staple in nearly every Canadian hockey household for years.

Now one half of the iconic duo Ron MacLean has opened up and finally broken his silence on the segment that ended the show.
Grapes was good at reaching his viewer and knowing what they wanted — expert at that — but we are held to a different metric or standard now, and I don't know if we could have made it much longer, MacLean said on the podcast. So I'm glad Don went out and people aren't that mad at him for what he said. They should be — don't ever get me wrong. You can't project an attitude on people just because of where they're from. We were so wrong, and it just needed an apology and it would have been gone; we would have been onward and upward. But people aren't that angry about it. It wasn't the worst thing that's ever been said in the history of humanity, so he kind of went out on top and people miss him and I think that's kind of a nice way to be.

Of course MacLean is talking about the incident that ultimately cost Cherry his job. In incident where he chose to bit have the back of his best friend, someone who had his back for years.
To many this incident ruined the Saturday night coverage of one of their favorite sports, while to others this was a much needed end to Cherry's career.
