Your over sensitivity is actually quite funny. And that you accuse me of essentially being a bigot and insensitive while not knowing what my background is(and knowing that I come from a group that has suffered far greater tragedies than the Quebecois) makes me even laugh harder

NO Partisan du CH, I'm not related to Halpern and Cammy.
No, you got it wrong. I don't think very highly of Benoît Brunet and Bertrand Raymond either. The difference is that I don't make a fixation about it. It's the "fixation" part that raises eyebrows.

And about prospects : HF Boards is very well known for overrating EVERY prospects. The fans are always excessively enthousiastic about ALL of their prospects. But recently, we've seen on this board the only players that are exempted from that phenomenom : Louis Leblanc and David Desharnais. When we talk about these players, there's suddenly a cohort of pessimistic posters arguing that these guys have no future, that we make them play or drafted them only because of their French name and that we should even stop talking about them. You really think it's a coincidence that the only prospects that makes these kinds of comments happen are French Canadians? I don't think so.

And I've been here for long enough, and I've heard all this stuff about "Dandouillon", about "fatendresse", about Ribeiro, about Bégin, about a poll where a majority of posters thought Brisebois deserved to be booed, about basically every French Canadians that has played for the Habs. Even Mathieu Darche was seen as a waste of cap space this summer. It's not everyone, but there's a very vocal minority here that spends most of their time bashing every French Canadian players/coaches/journalists/medias.

I'm not the one turning everything into a language debate. It's them, except that when I read anything hateful toward French Canadians, I don't stay silent anymore. You want me to stop being a pain in the *ss? It's easy : leave your prejudices aside, and if you have nothing better than irrational bashing to do, well don't say anything.

You see : 2 years ago, nobody was acknowledging that there was any anti-francophone hating here, so I see this as a step in the right direction.

So wrong. He was good (even great) on the PP, and could sometimes make a nice first pass out, but he was knocked on his ass easily or just flat out fell way too much, and was pretty brutal 5-on-5 overall. Just not a smart or effective player in his own zone. Worth having for cheap and in a limited role (and essentially was the diference in us making the playoffs last year), but saying that there wouldn't have been 10% of the criticism if his name is pretty laughable. Edmonton fans had the same criticism of him; what's the explanation for that?

I'm not saying that the criticism he gets is out of line, I'm saying that the hate he gets here is out of line. He's just another one in a long list of "worst player ever" here on HF: Brisebois, Ribeiro, Latendresse, Bouillon, Dandenault, Bergeron, Lapierre, Picard, etc.... Everyday we get new topics on how <insert french name> is killing the team, or is the worst journalist ever, and this one just happens to combine both. Of course, I dont disagree that the article in question was questionnable at best.

I agree completely.

And seriously, I don't know how the mods can still let new Benoit Brunet threads being opened all the time. There was almost a sticky thread about him at one point! Is this a hockey forum or what? How the fact that Brunet used the word "treizaine" create so much discussion and deserve its own thread?? This is just an invitation to hate and to make comments such as "French players are dumb and can't speak".

I generally find the Bergeron bashing way over the top. He was a flawed player earning very little at no risk and who was vital to the team's success last year. He wouldn't get 10% of the hate he gets here if his name last name was Smith. And BR probably wouldn't have written an article about him...

After reading your reply, I decided to go back and read the editorial again. I suggest you do the same...

Upon second reading, his article is even more garbage than I initially thought. Not only does he basically say they are equivalent (yes he does implicitly), he implies that getting Wiz was not too brilliant given that the equivalent MAB was simply a phone call away and much cheaper.

And MAB would not have been hated if his name was Smith? In Montreal? In Quebec? You serious? Why then was he hated in Edmonton, in Minnesota? What if his name was Andrei Bergerkov... do you think the french media would still be talking him? Would B. Raymond be writing stupid nonsensical articles about our fallen comrade whose only talent was to shoot a puck?

I hate to defend that particular article but hey, I'm a contrarian at heart.

Quote:
Quand Pierre Gauthier est allé chercher James Wisniewski chez les Islanders, il a obtenu le type de défenseur dont il n'a pas voulu l'été dernier : Marc-André Bergeron.
He's talking about someone who fills the role of an offensive D, which both fit Wiz and Bergeron. He did not say that Bergeron is "as good" as Wiz, just that we would have been free and earn a lot less, which is a valid point (personally I would pay more for quality). He even said that there would be room for the team for both (I would disagree). IMO the article does not merit the overreactions in this thread.

This is just an invitation to hate and to make comments such as "French players are dumb and can't speak".
While I keep mentioning to our anglo friends how they have to get used to the fact that the french debate will ALWAYS exist whether is having more francos players on the team or the need or obligation to have at least a french coach, at what point you, me and others also have to realize that most posters in here hate the game that is being played. And clearly, I hate it too. When I see guys like Bertrand Raymond, Réjean Tremblay, Gaston Therrien talking nonsense about french players vs others, it makes me and others look stupid. So what the majority will unfortunately end up doing is practically hoping that our Quebecers fail so that it displeases Raymond and Co and that it makes "their" point of having any guys no matter the language they speak as THE way to go. Yet, there are some people who CLEARLY don't care the language they speak and will give a fair chance to anybody no matter who he is. But then there will be people who will hate Quebecers more....like some will hate Russians more.....There are morons everywhere. I will still choose to believe that most people in here are able to separate the game from the player and will have a fair assessmentn on players.

I respect their view about "whatever language they speak". They usually understand my point of view as well while not agreeing with it. My biggest beef is that the paranoia is so big, probalby by both sides, that whenever we bring a Quebecer name into a trade, callup or whatever, there will be people associating the guy not to the talent but exclusively to the name he has.....But yet again, we can't stop ourselves to think that it's the majority. I will unfortunately always get caught into this and respond to them....but after cooling down, I still appreciate this board as a whole.

As far as the Brunet bashing, i agree it's tiring. Yet, we can avoid those threads if we want to. But also realize that you will usually talk a lot about a popular subject. RDS will always be popular. The guy you keep hearing day after day will always be popular. And frankly, to me, to this day I cannot believe that we can't have better for this sport of ours. I understand 'cause it takes a special guy to do that, trips and all. But I will still have a hard time believe in it.

But it is an old subject and we might want to move on.....difficult to do so when you continuously here him speak though and his numerous "I don't want to be hard on him, but Andrei...", I really really can't stand it anymore....but what choice do we have.

Anyway, it should be the last thread on the subject since we finally figured out what he's all about....

Well again, Wiz is not "le type de défenseur" that Bergeron is. Bergeron is a borderline NHL'er who's only valuable during the PP. Bergeron is NOT an offensive d-man. He's a PP specialist. While Wiz is closer to a 2-way d-man that could play in a regular top 4 in the league though he does have some deficiencies defensively.

But I don't see both of them as the same type. Bertrand Raymond sees 2 guys with a hard shot from the point and come to the conclusion that they're they same type....Another narrow minded opinion from this great Hall of famer....

Give me a break, I'm really starting to get tired of the posters who feel the need to come out and say that only the French are being criticized.

A quick search back over the last few years will show you and others that ANY Habs player, management, or media figure covering the Habs is open season to criticism.

It's not only Brisebois, Ribeiro, Latendresse, Bouillon, Dandenault, Bergeron, Lapierre, Picard that are being criticized. It's also the non-french like Koivu, Kovalev, Gomez, KostitsynX2, Price, Hamrlik, Spacek, Pyatt, Auld, Plekanec, I could go on and on.

So please, enough with the "Why the hate towards the French?". This board has more than proven that no matter your race, back ground or language. Nobody is exempt from being criticized at one point or another.

I'm french and I really don't care what language our players talk I know the team will do his best to have the more Franco they can in the organisation and they do a good job considering how many french players are in the league right now.

But I have a big problem with RDS. It have nothing to do with french bashing but I can't stand the fact that RDS is 10 times less professional than TSN. I want to listen to the game in french but the RDS crew are always there to remind me that they like to hired clowns. We have some good french hockey people in Quebec but most of them are not on RDS and I don't understand that. Give the money to Dubé,Mcguire and Gabriel Gagnon and tell Therrien,Brunet and Houde to stay home and the level of the network will already be alot better.

You are really blind if you can't see the difference between the criticism toward a Plekanec (which criticism??) and toward every French Canadian players.

How many time have you seen a thread complaining that a promising prospect is getting too much ice time, after only his 3rd game, getting to... 6 or 7 pages?

How many promising 1st round Habs draft picks have you seen being labelled as "overrated" here while they are still in junior?

Can't you see that the comments and their intensity toward the French Canadian players is by far exceeding the rational criticism that other players get?

If a mod like you can't see that, really, then I understand why the anti-francophone hate is proliferating around here.

Totally meaningless distinction since 'hate' and 'criticism' are used and viewed pretty much interchangably here. Somebody criticizes a player he's a "hater." In fact the 'hate' and 'hater' tag is getting really shopworn. People just try to tag each other with it to defuse one another's argument.

I'm far from being blind, and as a mod I have access to every single post made here on HF. So don't go telling me what it is I see and what I don't see.

I have seen that for both French and non-French players. I don't know if your rage blinds you or not. But I don't see a difference between the threads bashing Latendresse, Bergeron, or Brisebois for example, compared to the threads I read about Price when he wasn't doing well, or Gomez.

Hmmm...Chipchura comes to mind, is he french, I don't think so.

I with admit there is a strong hatred by a small group of posters towards the French. I don't think it's quite as bad as what yourself and some others portray it out to be. There is also a strong hatred by a small group of Francos towards the English or for a better term "Non-French".

I think what the main problem is, both sides (Franco/Anglo) have strong views on how they see the team being run. When either side disagrees with the other, it's deemed as "Hatred". When in reality, both sides only want to see the team playing better.

I'm a fan I want to learn things when I watch a game. I watch the NFL every week since I'm ten I'm still learning things when I watch a game, something I can't say about RDS and hockey. Sure Brunet know hockey but if he can't express his view in a clear way he have to get the **** out IMO

Good. My hypothesis is that you may haven't given it the attention that is deserves. Start being more watchful about it and you'll see, it's much more common than you think.

Maybe it's because French isn't my first language, but I find I just tune out Brunet, and follow Houde's play-by-play. Obviously I hear some of his commentary, but like half or less, so he doesn't bother me like he does others.

He is repetitive, I can say that.

I'd probably listen more if there was a quality guy in the mix, though.

We have been paying attention, and have added more mods who are fully bilingual to handle the situation.

At the same time, if you see posts/threads that you feel go over the line. You have to help us (mods) by reporting them. We have a large amount of posters, and we are only allowed to have so many mods. So if you want to see improvements, we need your help.

Good job!
Right, Brunet certainly has one of the hardest jobs in broadcasting...Are you freaking kidding me??
Give me that job, I'll do a better job than Brunet without having any notes.

Analyze the game play? Really, if that's one of the hardest jobs, then I'm in the wrong freaking field.

I challenge you to make a poll on the guys I've named and I'm sure peoples will say they are expressing themselves in good french, hell I've seen university proffessors with worse french than them. I don't know what your standards are, but I'm sure you don't need to be able to talk in a beaudelairian french to be a sport journalist.

Marc Denis is able to express himself as well as any journalist on RDS.
First of all, Brunet is not a sport journalist. He's a hockey analyst that comments the gameplay during games. Not the same, at all.

Second, I'm not going to get into this. If you want to think these guys speak well, then good for you. I don't and frankly don't care what other posters would believe as I don't know their level of french.
I speak perfect french, went to a private french school with the french system from France, and so, I'm blessed with good french. Perhaps my standards are too high. In any event, I have no interest in talking about this.

Enjoy Denis, Bouchard, Darche and Brunet's level of french. It's all good.

Give me that job, I'll do a better job than Brunet without having any notes.

Well be the only one that think ALL without exeption (honestly can it be more full of yourself)ex french players are bad in their language.

If you can't say that Denis is better in french than Brunet then I don't know what to say, because it's completly obvious.

Also the fact that you have gone to a french private school in France is completly irrelevant, French from France speaken by them is as far from what french should be as the Quebec french, so it's doesn't really matter where have you learn your french. Also, I don't think that anyone like the attitude : well I have a perfect french (well possible, but I highly doubt it) then I'm better than everyone else especially to judge fench language level. Well, I would be curious to know who in the sport world in Quebec do you think have a good french ?

Off topic:

Go check out the Matt Barnaby video on TSN.ca - there's an interesting anecdote about Joel Bouchard.

My my, someone is a tad pretentious today!

I'll tell you what... for the next game, set up a camera, mute your tv and try to analyse the play in realtime. For the whole 60 minutes. Then post it on youtube and put up a link here. I'm really curious, and I bet I'm not the only one.

lmao. Because Brunet is such a competent analyst. He can barely form a coherent sentence, let alone analyze what is going on. Not to mention that he is incredibly biased and unprofessional.

Even if his job was ~~~so hard!!11 , well guess what? He ****ING sucks at it. Even the analysts they use in non-Habs games on RDS are much better than him.

Then why don't you try it yourself.

It's easy to criticize from the safety of your couch. I'm daring anyone to put their money where their mouth is. The problem is that NOBODY is up for that kind of public embarassment. Brunet's not my favorite, but I dare anybody to perform under that kind of scrutiny.

Because I don't give a ****? I'm not a director but I have an opinion on movies. I'm not a chef but I have an opinion on food. We're all not professional hockey players but we're on here criticizing players and coaches everyday. I'm not a hockey analyst but I have an opinion on the incompetent man ''analyzing'' the game on RDS.

I don't care about the scrutiny. What matters is whether he's doing the job well, and he's simply not.
