Q & A With Cape Breton Coach/GM Marc-Andre Dumont

I thought this was an interesting idea... has anyone seen anything like this before? Cape Breton's coach & GM sat for two hours to talk and answer questions with fans. Good idea, I think, especially with a rebuilding team that is understandably watching attendance decline.

Read about it here:

I spoke to him on the phone for an hour and half last year, he answered all my questions about Val D'Or.

He's a super nice guy.

Oh what? He didn't just blame the fans for the team's poor performance?

Is this something Groulx does in Gatineau or are you speaking of Dumont in VD?

Really? Nobody else heard about this? Instead of having a Q & A with the fans like Dumont is evidently classy enough to do, Groulx blamed us all for making the players nervous.

I like Dumont. Dick Todd couldn't coach this year's Screaming Eagles team into a winner, but I think he'll find success in the coming years.

Ohhhh. I'm surprised Groulx said that... I thought highly of him... Bad coaches say things like that.

I said it when they hired him, Dumont will turn that team around.

If he's just feeding ******** to the media, he's making himself look like an idiot with all of the excuses this year. If he actually believes what he said, he needs to be fired.

When Val-d'Or fired Dumont, I was hoping we'd see him back beside Groulx.

Doesn't Gatineau ownership love him ?

Dumont was thrown under in Val D'Or. That team wasn't ready.

Yes... But how long are they going to put up with him blaming the fans for the team's performance?
