I'm this close to stop following the habs if this continues. Not only the management is ridiculous and lacks judgement, but I have to endure the media ****storm that comes with it.

To the point of calling a coach "incompetent" because he doesn't speak french is ridiculous. He's a HOCKEY coach, not a politician.

I'm going to be back in Montreal for New Years.

I'll do my best to make up for any boycott.

Basically won't change a thing.

I was watching the interviews with the "fans" and one of them was very mad because he said that even if Cunneyworth is the coach by interim, what if Habs gets in the Stanley Cup finals, we would probably have to keep him next season.

I understand the insecurity, because I feel it sometimes too, but it isn't in the best interest of le Canadien. And how come they don't care about Geoff Molson not being a French Quebecois?

I personally don't care if the coach speaks French, English, Russian or whatever he wants to speak as long as the team wins. But the Habs and their history are intertwined with Québec's history and cultural identity. The nickname "Habitants" comes from a pejorative term, used from the 1920s until the 1960s, to describe the French speaking population of Québec, depicted as rural, premodern, unlearned and simple minded. This cultural dimension is disappearing from the team, and fans have a right to demand it comes back to it without being called names by the English speaking fans who probaly aren't aware or don't care about the issue.

ironic that those wanting to 'protect' the French language not know the definition of the word ''intérimaire''.....

these idiots only complain because without causing scandals of any sorts, they are worthless and insignificant.

They thrive in conflict and calm periods mean they have nothing to do

We have enough threads for these kinds of links and discussions. I'll ask you all to remember that, and to not post anything too politically motivated. We're trying our best to let most stuff around this issue go, as it's very much relevant to all Habs fans, but please try to throw the other mods and I a bone if you can.
