And there you go.

The day people realize that the Habs are not a hockey team, but a reality show for small minded Quebecers, the less comments like this are infuriating. No one cares about hockey, they only care about "being respected" and who hangs out with who after the practices. The actual game on the ice is a sideshow.

Sometimes I wonder if the panelists are really xenophobes, or are they saying that the typical fan is a xenophobe, and must be respected....
