Outspoken hockey broadcaster Don Cherry, who has made a career of making controversial remarks, is in the spotlight again after suggesting that female sports journalists don't belong in men’s locker-rooms.

"I don't believe women should be in the male dressing room," said Cherry on his weekly Coach's Corner segment on Hockey Night in Canada.

"You want men in the dressing room with women?" asked Cherry.

The inflammatory comment drew a pained expression from fellow co-host Ron MacLean and prompted many hockey fans on Twitter to remind the plaid-loving commentator what decade it is.
