No offence, but can we cut the crap on the ANGLO vs FRANCAIS language issue! No wonder I left Montreal, where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, somehow get's spun into a language issue by some disgruntled party!
For the record, Ribs is Portuguese-Canadian ("pork & fromage" as one of my Portuguese-Canadian friends referred to himself)!
Also, this whole 'Ribs-Koivu fight' issue seems to be blown out of proportion to a major degree. For crying out loud, Ribs spoke out against it on TV, and the players are even somewhat joking about the whole issue (see today's Gazette).
Sorry for the rant, I normally only read and generally don't post (for 1 1/2 years now), but this 'language is everything' issue really boils my blood.... :mad:
