Or do not give a ratsass/they just want their team win? I understand not everyone is like me and would rather watch homegrown talent (I'm the same way when it comes to my QMJHL teams).
I can only speak for myself, but I do like to see Brits develop and get more time and bigger roles, but I also want to see my team win.

I'm kinda lucky to get a bit of both with Nottingham. If Brown is near the level of the current goal tender in Nottingham I'd like to see him given a chance, if no one gives these young brits a chance then they will never develop to the potential they can reach, which hurts the development of the sport long term.
