Ron MacLean nodded his head in approval and gave his thumbs up at the end of Don Cherry's controversial comments, made during the Remembrance Day segment of Hockey Night in Canada last Saturday. MacLean fell under major criticism this week after he turncoated his longtime friend and co-host when he issued a public statement condemning Cherry's comments on Coach's Corner.

MacLean threw Cherry under the bus and chose to return to Hockey Night in Canada without Cherry. Tonight, MacLean gave an apology during the first intermission of the game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Watch MacLean's apology here:


MacLean attempted to disguise his betrayal of his longtime friend during his speech, by stating that his speech was created to "honor" Cherry. MacLean's apology rang hollow. His words certainly did not honor Cherry, rather it was a pathetic attempt to save face and keep his job as host of Hockey Night in Canada.
