There is a difference between ‘hypocrisy’ and ‘changing your mind’ or ‘having regrets’. Typically, we allow that people can stop doing things when they begin to feel those things are harmful to them, and suggest in turn that perhaps others should not do those things, because they might also find them harmful. According to your logic, Don Cherry, anyone who ever held up a few liquor stores would be morally obligated to continue holding up liquor stores as long as he could, and furthermore to encourage others to hold up liquor stores as a means of survival, and if that person ever renounced liquor-store-robbery, they would be a turncoat and a hypocrite.

E at A Theory of Ice, speaking of Don Cherry's disgusting first Coach's Corner segment of 2011-12. This response was to Cherry's assertion that former fighters like Jim Thomson, Chris Nilan, and Georges Laraque were 'turncoats' for having second thoughts on fighting's role in the game. While the 2011-12 season unfortunately brings yet another season of the Don on Hockey Night in Canada, it fortunately is bringing the most eloquent Habs blogger on the planet back on board. We've missed you, E.
