So, should gay men be allowed in mens dressing rooms? .. how about gay men in womens dressing rooms or lesbians in a mans room? .. how about a transvestite? .. are they to be forbidden from all dressing rooms? .. this is all so 20th century .. :picard:

Since Don opined on the NHL dressing rooms of 45 years ago the world moved on.
As many female reporters have stated since Don opened his big yap , the NHL dressing rooms now have a changing room attached to a shower room and then a room where they meet the reporters.
Seems so many have yet to figure it out and yet it is a fact for over a decade now.
Women reporters don't compromise any athletes and the athletes should come in to the reporter's room properly attired.

The should not what? I agree with what the poster is saying. Maybe he (or she haha) didn`t word it in the best way with the pedastol analogy, but I get what they are saying and think it is the right attitude.

To be fair, reporter should take some clothes off before entering the dressing room.

i was agreeing with his point until i thought about it... in the dressing room, none of the players are fully naked even as they undress, because it's an area fully documented by press and media. so why would players even THINK about taking advantage of a female in front of so many people? it makes no sense what he ended up arguing, and it just made himself look bad.

Not sure if srs? Don Cherry says women SHOULDN'T be put on a pedestal and I agree with him.

You sound like that guy that buys a woman all kinds of gifts and tells her she's perfect just because she has a vagina (despite flaws) only to get friendzoned. People are people and there are trashy women and trashy men, good women and good men. Sure there are probably differencees between genders but overall, women aren't perfect/superior creatures, they are human just like men and therefore all of them have good points and bad points.

Just a bloody red herring. The focus should remain on what a rude idiot DK is-save this debate for another day. Keith's probably loving any diversion.

Yeah I know, some people will get their knickers in a knot just because I'm not a "gentleman" that treats someone extra special because they have boobs and a vagina. God forbid someone suggest that we are all human and none of us are entitled to special treatment (at least not for friviolous reasons such as gender). Come at me everyone.

One thing though is I might have misinterpreted Don's comments. Now that I've seen it again I can't tell whether he personally thinks women are above men or if he's just saying that's how some people see it.

No they can't vote or go to school or work and they must cover their ankles


Based on his previous comments, they also shouldn't be allowed to attend hockey games.

Why would any reporter regardless of gender be in a room with people before they are dressed anyway? They (teams) should have a dressing room (for that) and a press area.

I think women should be allowed in the dressing rooms. I don't see a problem. If she refuses, that is fair enough too.

By the way "kissing the badge" is the most repulsive thing in European Sport. Please don't let it come into hockey. I would have more respect for a player, if he produced his wallet and french kissed it to tatters.
The whole kissing the badge thing is disingenuous.

They essentially do. Changeroom and shower area are seperate from the "dressing room" where they meet the media.

I don't understand why reporters can't wait 15 minutes for the players to get out of the dressing room anyway. And we all know that if a male was in a womens dressing room where theyre all pretty much naked, we would think thats wrong. I say all reporters should wait outside.

Fully agree with this - players dressing room should be off limits to reporters...wait until they come out for interviews...issue resolved.

As others have stated, my issue is that reporters are in the dressing room to begin with. If I were a pro athlete, I would decline any interview in the dressing room, as I would view it as a place where my teammates and coaches can speak openly. Seperate press area for interviews.

As a married man, I completely understand what Don Cherry meant by putting women on a pedestal. The comment wasn't relevant to the topic at hand, but leave that to Ron Maclean for sucking him into it.

Like I said, I have a problem with the media being in the dressing room to begin with. However, that won't change. Do I think women should be in the dressing room? No, and they shouldn't until male reporters would be allowed into female dressing rooms, which they won't, nor should they.

For his good friend Cherry gets people to talk about him and forget that Keith was unprofessional and totally condescending -- AND slashed Daniel without getting the call.

Perfect, the ol' boys school at it again....


You do realize that when a player scores on a delayed penalty that the penalty is voided don't you? Penalty + goal = penalty voided. It's actually in the rulebook.

Keith isn't the first and won't be the last to be condescending, or even downright rude, when a reporter asks really stupid questions. GM's, coaches, and players have done it before without much hoopla. It does go with the job. His worst mistake was doing it to a female reporter. So much for equality.

Cherry is right on the one hand that if female reporters are allowed in male locker rooms, male reporters should be allowed in female locker rooms. Otherwise it's equality for women but not for men. Which of course means it's not equality at all.

I think female reporters should be allowed in the dressing rooms but only if they are hot and in their underwear or naked too. :towel:

She's there. She's part of your team. She's "changing" with you, and "nobody had a problem with it"

If it's all so cool, why didn't she shower with you too?

Think about your answer......

I'd say everyone should be naked when they are in the dressing room, whether they are straight, gay, lesbian, female or male. That should fix a lot of problems and everyone would be equal.

IF it is about equality, then we should scrap the whole Mens and Womens washroom and just have one unisex washroom in all the public and private facilities.
