OK , we all agree that the journalist was out on that one .

But you are trying to make a big affair with that little story as much as the journalist was trying to make a big story with a little event .

" OMG ! OMG ! the FRENCH MEDIAS try again to start a big contreversy for nothing on a habs player...Fire that guy ! poor hockey players , i understand why they don't want to sign here ... "
Do you live under a rock? Seriously....it's all they've been talking about on 110% and CKAC. Its so tiring to only hear gossip on these stations. Gossip, gossip, gossip, 5 minutes of actual hockey talk, gossip, gossip, gossip.

So unprofessional. At least there are alternatives.

It's not even subtle (see CKAC, 110%, Pedneault, etc).
Guess that's what the public wants ??
I've never seen so much criticisms from the public versus the medias and journalists than now. The majority are behind the Habs and do not accept the bashing like we used to in the past (though those teams might have deserved it).

I really can't believe that the medias do not adapt themselves 'cause at one point, we should stop listening or reading them. Though for his defense, he once said that hockey is not his favorite sport and he's not expect in that field....he's more likely at ease with Formula 1 and loved covering that sport.....It must suck to not cover the sport you love and be stuck with a sport you don't know much about and didn't like too much of.....

The worst for me is Réjean Tremblay who keeps degrading Habs fans by calling them "Fa-Fans" in reference to blinded fans who can't see no wrong. Though we know it does exist.....the way he says this is just disrespectful and he just doesn't realize that most fafans are the ones buying LaPresse reading his comments. He keeps saying how we are laughed by the Habs and don't do anything about it and so on....But then the guy has never anything good to say about the team except that the coach is his president (Chicoutimi Sags). So if we're "fafans" of the Habs, he must be a "fafan" of hating them....

man that guy on CKAC is insane! who the **** does he think he is? Even talking about his salary! Go Georges, he handled this like a true professional was honest the hole time, i mean seriously what a hypocrite that guy on CKAC is. I mean do you think Laraque gives a damn about that guy's opinion? lol

edit:BTW i won't become the next TheDamned or Cristobal Huet or Erika Kostitsyn on Georges Laraque, journalists who trie to stir **** for absolutely no reason at all.

Does anybody know what that Patrick guy said right after the interview, he looked pissed off too

It dosent mean it should be accepted. If you want to hear real news in french you have a right to ask for better. Cant they spend the show talking about who was there and what happend there instead of talking about how wasnt there?

I dont know why we'd have to settle for less. Why not strive for excellence and have something we are proud of?

Great response from Laraque!! Love the passion in his voice. Absolutely hilarious.

He comes on TEAM1260 in Edmonton all the time, and is very candid and isn't afraid to speak his mind. I hope he brings some of that to the Montreal media, and that he brings out the truth. Too many times, stories about Montreal hockey are shrouded with rumour and innuendo.

ZNK , you have over 22000 posts in this talkboard ; you are a hockey maniac ,like most of the members of this board . We never have enough informations , enough talks about hockey .

Unfortunately......if we want some french contents, 'cause after all for most it's our first language.....if you love hockey, you'll listen/read to what's out there.

Radio-Canada has Villeneuve who's always on the Habs back but at last they have Dubé and Gérard Gagnon who does their best to put him in his place. TQS....well it's 110% bashing most of the time. La Presse with Tremblay, King, Blanchard where it's bashing all the time. RDS where Pedneault was there with his Kostitsyns bashing, and Brunet with his Kovalev hatred....CKAC with Villeneuve, Lajoie....

I mean freedom of speech, sure, but at the point where the vendetta has to be first and foremost compared to real informations? If you love hockey, we are kinda force to listen/watch/read them 'cause they're everywhere.

I just wish that on every station, you would have a counterparty, the same way I see Dubé against Villeneuve on Radio-Canada. 110% would be intelligent (can't believe I said both in the same phrase...) if they would have somebody who would talk about the other side of the medal once in a while. Actually PJ tries that sometimes, but he's obviously not there a lot so.....

I wanted to hear about who was there, what this tournament is about(raising funds for children), comments from all the players they could find, expectations on these players etc...
Not 3 hours on why BLG wasnt there.

I agree about that. Villeneuve presses the buttons and Dubé answers. After a while you realize that Villeneuve says things that he doesent really support but that is the unpopular position (that's when he has this little smirk). The problem with 110% and CKAC is usually they all add oil to the fire instead of having solid arguments for all sides of the the issues.

Seriously i like Jean-Charles personality, but i still can't stand him, the first time i hated him was when he started his campaign for the CH to draft Danick Paquette making him look like a Lecavalier in the making, but everybody knew he didn't knew him the day before, and that he never saw him play and wasn't aware of the big flaws of Dannick (mainly being a very slow 3/4th liner with checking abilities).

Hearing him saying that if TT dont draft him he will show the world that he dont respect the french fan base, it made me sick, and i actualy stoped listening to CKAC during the summer... No Danny Dubé and no Pat Burns makes this station... somewhat awful.

I'm realy happy that George called him and made a fool out of Jean-Charles, the guy should be an humorist, seriously he's realy entertaining, more than an analyst he realy got the stupidest opinions... i remember that once he asked Michel Villeneuve to invite him on his La Zone show, and Michel didn't know how to tell him that he, himself, was the only retard accepted on the show, it was epic.

Jean-Charles is a pure buffoon anyways..
He just loves to hear himself talk and that's why he speaks so much.
He's as dumb as they come.

I dont watch 110% much and not at all during summer... same for CKAC...

after hearing Laraque I went to watch yesterday's 110% comedy on TQS website, they were bashing Koivu for not being there instead of Laraque... and Langevin summed it up perfectly...

je mettrais pas Saku Koivu sa tete par dessus un bonhomme de bois ca c'est la premiere des choses, pis deuxieme des choses Saku Koivu a assez donné assez d'argent pour les hopitaux ici a Mtl, j'pense qu'on pourrais fermer notre gueule ce soir pis passez au sujet suivant

In every major sports city, the media is there to scrutinize every player/team's move. People wouldn't tune in if all they did was report what they see with no editorial content included. And c'mon, I listen to CKAC all the time and there's just as much fawning over players as there is bashing. And really, who here doesn't have their own scapegoats on their favorite team? Radio hosts are allowed to have theirs and that's what makes it entertaining.

If you want just the facts, and only the facts, tune in to Sportscenter.

Criticize a player for not going to an OPTIONAL off-season charity event is pushing the limit way too far.
Especially knowing it's a new player that still hasn't come yet.

Criticize a player for playing a crappy game, missing practice, partying too much, coming into camp in bad shape, etc...I can agree with that, even if I won't share the same opinion, I can understand why they'd criticize.
But this was unjustified nor uncalled for.

Maybe in this particular instance they spent a little too much time discussing what is ultimately a pretty trivial event, but people here were saying that the media in general goes too far and should step back a little in their player/team bashing. I personally disagree and think that the reason CKAC and the like get such high ratings is because of the editorial content, good OR bad.

And with little or no news surrounding the Habs these days, no one should be surprised that a player missing a golf tourney is all the rage in this town. CKAC's got to eat.

So they are questioning Koivu's leadership because he didnt play golf with the 3/4 of the team on 110%. This is so predictable.

I don't really think so. I think the reason they get high ratings is because it's the only french channel that talks about the Habs pretty much all day. You can be sure people are a lot more interested when its McGuire and Dubé talking than when its JC or Ron.

Other than 110% and CKAC, there isn't any other french shows about the Habs.

Just take the fans here as examples, we pretty much dislike most interviewers/analyst on the radio or TV that talk about the Habs. But we still watch/listen to them solely because its the only places where they do talk about the Habs.

So many things to say about this one, where do I start?

Well for starter, and I can’t believe this always needs to be repeated, but CKAC Sport and the French media didn’t attack George Laraque on radio yesterday. A fat turd by the name of Jean-Charles Lajoie took time out of of his busy schedule of eating Doritos and reading ridiculously crappy poems to whine about the absence of eight players at the Habs golf tournament. Fatty spent a lot more time on the captain’s case and on Laraque’s.

I’d say that about 9 out of 10 callers and e-mailers weren’t bothered by the eight guys’ no-show. Lajoie was being told that his subject was retarded and that nobody in their right mind cares for the freaking golf tournament. The few who supported him were mainly old-timers going on about how former captain Jean Béliveau would have been there and so on and so forth.

When I heard Laraque’s voice, I think I wet my pants a little. I was banging on the steering wheel, screaming for joy! He put Lajoie right back in his place and he did it with class. He’s going to be a media delight for the next three years! Great moment.

I was in my car and I was going back and forth between this show and PJ & Tony on the Team990. Since both Lajoie and Stock can be imbeciles, I was doing a lot of back forth between the stations each time my ears started to bleed following an inane comment.

Stock, who was also whining yesterday (tuesday) because Saku was absent, was now bashing his TQS colleagues for what they said the night before. Marinaro started to wonder out loud about the old problem that the French media seem(ed) to have with Koivu, Rivet, Souray, even Recchi.

Can I get something off my chest before the season starts and we can get on with hockey? This thread seems as good a place as any to do it, so here it goes. I’m fukcing tired of the damn language controversies! Not only am I tired of the same old bs about Anglophones and Europeans players coming from the French side (media members and hockey fans – including forum posters), but I’m exhausted by the hypocrisy on the same subject coming from members of the Anglophone community (media members and hockey fans – including forum posters). The baseless and frivolous attacks aimed at Saku Koivu have, over the years, granted a form of improportionate defensive response from certain people in this city, mainly Anglophones. Because of dolts like Michel Villeneuve or Michel Bergeron, certain players have become untouchables. Saku has become some sort of god who can’t be criticized, ever. Jokes about Craig Rivet’s silly comments about the weather and snow shoveling are not welcomed. Any francophone player who garners praises is therefore branded as overrated. And people who like to have local players on the team are racists. Did I forget something?

My point is not merely to point the finger and stir the pot, I just can’t stand it anymore. Since we are talking about professional sport and not floral arrangements, people are bound to get stupid. The thing is, they get stupid on every front and about everything. To claim the moral hauteur as some are doing is appalling to witness.

Some people bash Koivu while praising a guy like Latendresse mainly for political reasons and perceptions that have nothing to do with the game of hockey. Some people worship Koivu and take dump on Latendresse for similar arguments.
Both need to stop.

Sorry about this late-night rant. I feel better now.
