100% agree. MUch easier to blame 6 year old kids for preferring soccer than to reach out and make our (awesome) sport cool to them.

(Edit) .. I also think this is why the popularity of the notion of Quebec as it's own nation has dropped so massively. Old white people blaming everyone but themselves.
