There is a reason why no hab has wore 19 since Robnison's departure, but players have wore 18, 29 and so on. The decision to retires Robinson's number was made it most peoples minds even before the Big Bird retired, so why does managment want to drag this out.

Retire #19 this year!!!!!!!
There's always been a rivalry between Marvelville and Montreal, that's the real issue.

I think Robinson has said a few things that may not sit well with the pr staff, as uptight as they are. he's never sought out the media, but when he gets asked stuff at charity golf tournaments, he answers candidly, even if that involves being critical of the org. Never in an ignorant headline grabbing way, but I think they decided to do it this way out of a misguided notion not to be pushed around.
