Instead of petitioning, why doesn't every pipe down and forget this exists - this is one beat reporter (Stubbs) trying to stay in the good graces of the organization and one reporter (PJ) trying to raise drama and make himself seem important or connected. They can both go to hell, why are you guys supporting one or the other?

Especially Stubbs that coward who had a million things to suggest but nothing to say during one of the worst seasons in Habs history.
This has been explained to you before but you still refuse to absorb it . Dave Stubbs is a feature writer and human interest story teller, that's the approach to writing he takes. He is NOT a beat writer.

He also isn't a muckraker and if he's calling Stock to task for his broad brush comments I will take it at face value that there's a good reason. It's probably because it goes against his nature of being balanced if not complimentary towards the human beings who give him his living.
