As much as I dislike Gomez the player.. but I really hate this.

Celebrating mediocrity is pathetic.

Its like making a party next year to "celebrate" our 20 years cup drought.

I make movies. If I make a crappy movie, I can type in "www.rottentomatoes.com" and I'll be damn sure over 20.000 people including international medias way more powerful than RDS will bash the hell out of me.

I don't get paid 7.4 mil. per film.

The overly dramatic fans are the ones *****ing about this, not the ones that cheer. Give me a break...

Not even remotely the same thing. If you were performing poorly at your job, you prefer reading about it on the paper or getting jeered everytime you go to work?

You know it's not an actual celebration, it's people letting the management know what they think by making fun of the situation/pointing out how ridiculous it is.

if I were paid 7M$/year to be an entertainer, then I'd at least find some solace in knowing that I provide strong emotional responses to my paying customers (or, more accurately, to the paying customers of my employer) even when I am otherwise absolutely failing at my job.


the "celebrations" around Gomez's 1-year anniversary of futility are at least giving his "clients" something to smile about, and at the end of the day, that's what his job is (making his "clients" -or his bosses clients, happy).

Guess what, it'd be worse than that. If you know anything about the film industry, you know I wouldn't even GET work if I wasn't greatly successful with my last movie. Both critically and financially.

Oh and I'd also get bashed at work and at screenings I'd go to.

It's definitely the exact same thing.

Why should I cheer for a team that doesn't care or support Gomez who makes millions of dollars but has been so bad for so long it has become a joke.

I'm sorry but Quebec has the highest unemployment rate in Canada (Montreal's being even higher) and we see this millionaire put in pathetic performance after pathetic performance night after night. When if any one of us would have been this bad for as long as Gomez has been, we would have been out of a job.

It's not the fans fault and they have every right to be pissed.
What I highlighted--your first sentence--would be more accurate if it read like this...........

If Montreal actually had a dynamic and successful management group and an effective coaching staff, then players would be willing to sign.

Like I said before though, booing Gomez is stupid because he's not responsible for our problems. He plays good for a 4th line center, which is what his salary should reflect. Gainey/Gauthier are responsible here. I think Gomez knows what people's complaints are. The same complaint comes back and back again in the media and among the fans: it's his salary, not his skill. He's good enough for the NHL, lets not kid ourselves. He's also a really good guy and I suspect he's doing a good job in the locker room. He just shouldn't get paid that much. We have no way of directly "booing" Pierre Gauthier though.

Winner of the most ironic post of the entire decade at HFForums.

Here you are, created a thread about how some fans in Montreal are just plain MEAN to Gomez for booing him or sarcastically cheering him and how his poor feelings are hurt..............

and then you attack and demean a poster in a MEAN fashion without respect to his feelings.

Bravo!!! This place is amazing sometimes.

I don't boo my players either. It's one thing to criticize a GMs decisions on a message board, it's a whole other ballgame to boo your team at the game. I just don't have it in me to do this. That being said, I support the right for other folks to do so.

As for Jackie Robinson, it's a dishonour to bring him up in this conversation. We all know what his hecklers were all about it it has nothing to do this this conversation or one involving a blueliner who'd trip on his own blueline. Let's leave Robinson's detractors out of this because it's an extremely bad comparison.
I'm not comparing Jackie Robinson to Brisebois...c'mon. I was comparing the mentality of the fans who thought that because they "pay to see an athlete play" that it gives them the right to jeer/boo players. It's a very simplistic way of looking at things.

Buying a ticket doesn't give you the right to do whatever the hell you want.

That's true and there's obviously a reason for that. However, we don't know what the reason is so we don't have a right to bash him. He's still good enough to be in the NHL though, so I'd gladly keep him on the team if he took a HUGE paycut.

Of course right? Money solves everything.

This about sums it up.

**** what the guy makes, he's a human. This sarcastic cheering is so childish and makes us look like a bunch of spoiled rotten bullies.

Is there really anyone here who thinks Gomez is just sitting there laughing at us all while he rolls in money? There are definitely some athletes who take the money and run, but Gomez is not one. You can see he tries. He just sucks and was offered way more money than he is worth. Should he have asked for less???

Seriously though people, have a little class and support your team and you players. This season has definitely exposed our team for what it is, but it as has also exposed our fans.

No point denying it. He hasn't scored in a year. Can't really argue with that.

But 22,000 people mocking him on a daily basis is totally wrong and ****ing classless.

Fun to laugh at him and call him terrible, which he is most nights, yet, he's too strong to be in the AHL so he would rack up points....which would most likely give him some confidence. That's what he needs. I actually can't believe they didn't come to that sooner. We needed a confident Gomez, sending him down with his approval, making him understand the reasoning behind it, would have been ideal for everybody. But that's real thinking outside the box, which we don't do. Unless, signing players during the season was what Gauthier had in mind when he said that, which is real funny 'cause most teams if not ALL the teams were already doing that....
I see what you are saying, but I think its unprecedented for a player to actually ask management to send him down... that would be hilarious though, and the media would have a field day with it... moreso than if the habs told him to go down

Its up to the management to bring it up.
