Sour Grapes?

On Hockey Night in Canada last Saturday evening Don Cherry went on a rant about Canadians in Toronto and surrounding area not wearing poppies. His co-host on "Coach's Corner", Ron McLean, did not push back at all but gave a thumbs-up at the end of Cherry's singling out of recent immigrants to this great country. "You people" is how he referred to them.

How could this All in the Family fan not immediately make a connection?

Don Cherry: "You people."
Archie Bunker: "Yous people."

Due to push back from much of the Canadian public, Rogers Sportsnet, owner of Hockey Night in Canada, fired Don "Grapes" Cherry.
