They turn on people at the drop of a dime.

2. Media. Much like the fans and probably the biggest contribution to why the fans react a certain way, the media in Montreal is terrible. Breaking into a hospital room and flashing a camera in someone's face when they are supposed to be protecting their eye is a disgrace. The way media chastises players, coaches and the team as a whole becomes tiring. And when le topic du jour is about bashing a player and players are being questioned about it after a game, it becomes an annoyance.

3. A very distant third is everything else. Taxes, weather, etc...
agree, best fans in the world ? yeah, until you have a bad game (or maybe two if you're lucky)...
