2. Politics... Its easy for outside observers to dislike the politics and policies of Quebec, in general. And with very good reason too (won't go there, though).

True that Cherry gives Montreal credit on occasion.

Habs against the World!

Ps. Despite it all, the Canadiens fans number in the millions... spread far and wide.
In all honesty, you're only as good as what you've done lately. Considering how inept the Habs have been in the last 20 years, they have nothing on any other Canadian team.

Also, look at it from a neutral angle. The Quebec media is all Habs! Medias based in other areas will be biased towards their local teams. It's just the way it is. What ever boosts your viewership is what you will cater to.
