TORONTO ó Don Cherry says the menís locker-room is no place for a woman.
The outspoken CBC hockey broadcaster made the comments during his weekly Coachís Corner segment of Hockey Night in CanadaĒon Saturday night while discussing the controversy around Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith.
Keith was criticized earlier in the week after delivering what some considered a sexist post-game putdown to a female radio reporter in Vancouver.

Keith is street trash that was fortunate enough to be a good skater, and an adult took notice of it and he was able to get into Hockey.Collecting many HOF Cards, Old OPC, Old Parkhurst, Old Topps.

I want to like Keith but he's a punk. The guy couldn't keep up with a Sedin of all players, throws a slash and when he's called on it after the game he runs his mouth about women in sports.
Keith saying women can't skate? I bet more than a few could keep up with Daniel flippin'' Sedin.

“I remember the first time it happened to me,” continued Cherry, “guys are walking around naked and I hear this woman’s voice. I turn around and she’s asking me about the power play. I say, ‘Let’s go outside.’ She said, ‘I’m not embarrassed.’ I said, ‘I am.”’
“I don’t feel women are equal. I feel they’re above us. I think they’re on a pedestal and they should not be walking in when naked guys are walking in.
and this comment
Don Cherry is right on with his comments, a men's dressing is no place for women. Players for all sports should have at least an hour after a game to cool down, shower and get dressed for the media.
at my rink, the women who play dress way on the other side of the rinks dressing room AWAY from males. no females are allowed in cause just like cherry said, guys walking around in the buff all the time. give players a little time to cool down, take showers, get dressed, then let them come out and talk to reporters. women shouldnt have to subject themselves to nakes jerks who are in a bad mood.

Exactly, the room is supposed to be a sanctuary.

To me the locker-room is similar to a washroom and this comes down to common sense where only men should be allowed in the men's room and only women in the women's room. Therefore I believe that only men should be allowed in the men's locker-room and in women's hockey only women should enter the women's locker-room. If the team doesn't want media inside, then everyone can wait outside until players come out. I'm all for equality, but common sense needs to be used as well.

Why are male reporters not allowed in female locker rooms after the game but female reporters are allowed in male locker rooms after the game? Why do anybody need to interview anybody in the locker room anyway?Trade Bucket: Hidden Content
