Can we stop RDS/Brunet/etc bashing

It's getting quiet annoying to see all these threads in middle or after every game. We get it, RDS and their staff aren't professional. Can't we just move on to other channels? TSN, Sports Central, online links, or plain old simple mute button.

That will be all,


Just for record... i avoid RDS now..And by all means, I am not defending RDS. Just trying to understand why people watch and then quote something they hate.

Not to be that guy, but I seriously advise using the "ignore thread" feature.

I've done it numerous times and it really cleans up the board and lowers the blood pressure.

If we don't complain about it, RDS will keep shoving this **** down everyone's throat and people will believe the crap they see/hear/read

I agree with your thread. If you dont like it change the channel and stop complaining. I love RDS. Who else in the league has such great coverage of there hockey team? for FREE! As for the staff, they know more about hockey than anyone on this board myself included. they dont take there information on a message board. They actually have interactions with players. So please stop the complaining, you dont know how lucky we are as habs fans.

we have every right to complain as customers. If you think it's annoying that we complain and invite us to change the channel, I'd invite you to find another forum. Same logic.

On the other hand, if you guys wanna complain, your complaints will never be worth anything if you waste them on hfboards, take them straight to rds. Enough bad feedback DOES get stuff done, believe me.

I didnt think Brunet was that dump..

I understand people to be mad about it, the guy doesnt fit there at all, it could be tolerable during the intermissions or after the games but thats all, Im at the point where I think about shuting my T.V. up and turn the radio at 550 A.M., and Im not kidding..

And now Bergeron is arguing that Latendresse was sent in Hamilton last year and he fights to get his point, Crete and Chantelois don't even argue...

If I watch a game on RDS when I'm in Canada, I never have any complaints. Then again, I don't completely understand French.

It's all about the hockey if I'm watching...no idea what they're talking about.

Is it really that bad?

they would probably argue that you don't skate well and that you are a lazy russian.
you would say you are from the US and not from Russia and they would say it is the same thing...

Was Brunet still bashing Andrei after a 3 point game?

More things change, more they remain the same.

They should really put Bouchard up there. Brunet is annoying. And I can't change the channel, I watch the games from the movie theater close to my place. And you wouldn't believe the number of people who were saying "oh shut up" to Brunet out loud in the theater. People chuckled because some did it in unison.

And his ever-growing obsession with AKost and Higgins is extremely annoying. He seems to be jealous of their youth and talent.

thinking that a whole nation of french speaking, hockey loving fellows , is stuck with these guys .... woah that's just scary.

Why on earth is brunet there ? the analysis of the game on the spot is beyond him. Pedneault kept it dumb and simple ... brunet tries to make predictions, gives his opinion on how we should deal with the players, and he has this retarded mentality (ie: he is against the automatic icing, because ''injuries should be part of the game '' ) ...

Gaston terrien , making racist , yeah , racist comments on the kostisyn ... while going on air and say that latendresse should keep playing , even if he plays bad.


they tried to change everything for this year, and they ****ed things up, let's face it ...

I'm done on the subject, but man do they blow.
