The sports activities community apologized on Sunday for Cherry’s feedback on “Coach’s Nook” the day past, about his perception that new immigrants do not put on poppies to point out their assist for veterans.
The feedback sparked a swift backlash from the general public, politicians and the Nationwide Hockey League.
