Don Cherry was always an outspoken individual in terms of politics, so he made his remarks and Sportsnet said it's the last straw.
I always hated Sportsnet, and this is just an honest and candid opinion. As my friend put it, "it's like watching AHL level of broadcasting". TSN's hockey coverage rivaled American channels covering the NFL. I'm not going to hide behind my opinions behind some... Read More »

So the settlement? Four years at 9m/y. That is what I believe the final number will be around.
