This entire "it's a cultural thing" debate is ridiculous. Does Man U care what language their coach speaks? Do the Yankee fans demand they have a coach from New York? Do any team in any sports market anywhere in the world care about anything other than winning?! **** no! Winning is the only perquisite.

What's more important, boasting to a Leas fan about our teams 24 Cups or the fact we had a French speaking coach? Give me a ****ing break.

Anyone who makes the Habs a Quebec/language issue is using the wrong soap box. The Habs are a part of Quebec culture but they're so important because we won so damn much. When we were winning, language was never an issue. Why is it now when the focus should be how best to get back to our winning ways. Does matter how, what matters is bringing back pride to our favorite team. To do this we need to win and we need an owner who has the balls to know the difference.

Molson has to decide, does he wish to be an owner who placated 200 admitted non hockey fans or an owner who brings us back to our wining tradition, not French tradition. He's not the language police, he's the owner of a privately owned hockey franchise.
