One of the President Trumps first actions hits Canadians right in the heart – Hockey
We can’t wait until Don Cherry officially reacts to this one.
President Trump’s America First policy means that Canadian NHL players can’t work full time for American teams. American NHL players only take up 15% of the league, so filling US teams will be a challenge.
Don Cherry has always been a fighter, but it is hard to take a piece out of a president without getting arrested or worse. So we will wait to see what Cherry has to say about this in the next Hockey Night In Canada broadcast.
Imagine Sydney Crosby or Jonathan Toews playing for Team USA at The Olympics?
The full extent of the policy is not yet known but here are a few things we would like to get Cherry’s reaction to:
There are more Canadian players in the US than the teams in Canada can carry – will they be unemployed? Will they go to Europe?
Some Player’s could take US Citizenship – What does Cherry think of Sydney Crosby or Jonathan Toews playing for Team USA at The Olympics?
What will be the reaction to Toronto fans / Leafs Nation when they lose Auston Matthews?
What will the TV Broadcasters do with their huge contracts – can they sue?
What happens when American Minor league pros, college players and the National team get called up to the NHL. Who will replace them in the minor leagues?
Will Some US Teams fold due to lack of quality players?
Can Canadians take Scholarships from US colleges?
The NHL League office has not yet reacted to this new policy. It will be interesting to see how American Hockey fans react when their teams are decimated.
President Trump’s new policy takes Oscar front-runners Florence Foster Jenkins and Manchester by the Sea out of running.
When Meryl Streep criticized Donald Trump at the Golden Globes she could not have imagined what President Trump had in store for her. He has flipped her industry on it’s ear and thrown any hope for a Streep Oscar out the window.
President Trump went beyond implementing a policy promoting films produced in America. He is insisting that the 2017 Oscar Awards Fall follow the policy too.
LA LA Land a shoe-in for Best Picture Oscar now!
This means any movie not 100% American will be in the Foreign Film Category. This includes American actors that are in foreign made productions. 90% of the movies will fall into the Foreign Film category.
The new policy says films must be 100% American made or face heavy foreign film taxes. Is including the Oscars Propaganda? Read More >
Oscar Organizers are not sure if they can meet Trump’s wishes for the 2017 Awards. Most of the voting for nominations is done and there is no time for Academy members to start again with new films. There may be a lot of empty categories and surprise winners.
Front runner for Best Picture Florence Foster Jenkins and Manchester by the Sea will be out of the running. The only major film left that fits the Trump criteria is LA LA Land and it was to be in the Best Musical category.
Changing the Oscars will only give Black Movies a bigger audience
There is no response yet from Meryl Streep – the obvious Trump target with nominations expected in Best actress, and Best Movie for Florence Foster Jenkins.
Reaction of Trump supporters is mixed; “We like bringing the jobs back to America but changing the Oscars will only give Black Movies a bigger audience.”
