Right now I really don't have a problem with having to have a bilingual coach btw. I see no reason not to do this. We aren't winning anyway and there are enough qualified guys out there that we can search through to handle the job.

As for the GM, well that's another story... much smaller pool to pick from. The guy they hire should be willing to learn French (or at least try) but we shouldn't limit it to somebody who knows the language already. That's the position we really need to worry about.

If we ever manage to build a contending team and we suddenly need to get a coach and a Mike Babcock is available, I thik there will be much less of a hoopla over things. It's one thing to get the best coach out there when you have a great team, it's a whole other ball of wax when you hire some rookie anglo with a terrible club. The reaction was entirely predictable even if it was way over the top. This is just common sense stuff.
