IMO we should have a french version of the habs board. The majority of habs fans are francophone. Or at least a french section but i guess foreign languages are not allowed on the web site.
A lot of people think hfboards is full of pompous anglo habs fans that doesn't step out of westmount often.
While the reality is that pretty much half or even more speaks french as their first language.
Is there not a Francophone Habs board out there? I understand the hfboards logic of English only, because this is an English language site and having a separate board would divide the fanbase and isolate them from the rest of the site. Of course this place doesn't represent the average fan, but there's plenty of francophones here. If anything being in English skews it to a younger, urban demographic, which is the case of internet forums in general. The same can be said of most fanbases, the kind of people who post on forums tend to be younger and more affluent than the general population. Plus Montreal is overwhelmingly bilingual even if Quebec as a whole is not.
I always assumed there was a big French Habs forum out there somewhere
