Ever since the firing of Don Cherry, Ron MacLean has been at the center of debates. He did it again by taking a stance against the NHL and Gary Bettman.

During a recent broadcast, Ron MacLean openly criticized the NHL's decision to prohibit Pride Tape.


Hats off to Ron MacLean for openly condemning the NHL for banning pride tape during the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast 🧢🌈


Ahead of tonight's home opener @hockeynight's @Ron_MacLean joins @ngelavaliant to chat the NHL banning pride tape


«I sense a readiness to rethink the current policy. It's important for the leadership to heed the voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ community and its supporters. At our core, many of us feel alienated by a directive we struggle to embrace.» - Ron MacLean


MacLean's statements have polarized the fan base due to the inherent sensitivity of the topic. Compared to his Hockey Night In Canada peer Don Cherry, MacLean has traditionally leaned more progressive.

It's great to see another important figure in the NHL taking such a stance against Bettman's ruling.

The spotlight is now on whether the Commissioner will reconsider the Pride Tape ban or maintain his current position.
