I know your newspaper is in lockout and all, but...

Please don't have Benoit Aubin write anything in your sports section.

Le Journal de Montreal went into a lockout yesterday, so they have to fill their pages with texts from executives at the JDM and Press agency text.

But Aubin's text this morning is totally brutal.



Major mistakes:

-Backstrom playing for Vancouver
-Western team never come to play here
-Patrick Marleau (Not only does he say that he's a Quebecois, but he also says that he plays for Calgary)
-Souray got traded (he was UFA)
-And seriously, who doesn't know who Getzlaf, Toews and Kane are ? He says that you have to be a hockey maniac to know those guys ? Wrong, you have to know hockey, which doesn't seem to be his case.

My advice to the JDM: Don't have the guy who normally writes about that day's news do anything in your sports section.

That's an embarrassment to the Island, sometimes I'm glad to be an Anglo Quebec'er. They have to realize that in 2009, Quebec is part of North America & everything is read Global... Many of us speak 2 or more tongues... So be brilliant, our eyeballs are watching...jeeze...

I wouldn't spam him. You have to understand that he's currently doing a job he shouldn't be doing (talking about sports). It's more of the Journal's fault than his, because of the lockout.

The guy is clearly not very informed... he seems to be a guy who follows the NHL only with the big news, the headlines. I don't really blame him, he shouldn't have written this article.

Though, he does have some good points, we almost never see the Canadian teams from the West playing against Canadiens. And there are many teams from the south of the USA who are not very popular.

I kind of feel bad for him... It would be different if this were his real job (as in sports), but if you asked me to write an article about basketball it would probably look something like that.

Although admittedly, I'd probably do a bit more fact checking...

Seriously though with the internet, at least Wiki, jeeze...

The Editor should be fired, maybe he's on strike!

Ya, it is pretty bad.

It confuses me further that this probably had to go through an editor, unless they're on strike too.

Dutch(Or Mods) can you please edit title to Journal de Montreal, Montreal has lots of papers, that's not the one that arrives at my doorstep daily in Lachine.

This is Global & Montreal has other sources like The Gazette & La Presse..

Which check facts...

Thx, Rich...

The regular writers of the JDeM will probably make their own free paper, I guess. People on the island will be able to get that.

If anything, it's just another good reason to have a laugh at management and do the good thing and not buy a paper that has its employees on lockout.

Dude you are so the worst poster here. Benoit Aubin is part of the direction (un cadre) at the JdM. The company has put the employees on lockout, meaning that management replaces the writers while they are 'locked out'. You don't seem to understand the concept. Fired? Strike? Huh? And you talk about your anglo pride and refer to another group as 'they', two things that if mentionned by a francophone would make you go ape **** like you usually do.

If the purpose of the article is to be funny, it's a great article cause i had a good laugh.

That said, if he doesnt know toews kane getzlaf and thinks backstrom plays for Vancouver he shouldnt have wrote this article.
