Well, if he said something along the line of "these drunk lazy Russians are, as always,..." that could be considered racism...

A lot of posters on HF, were fast on the "lazy Russians" the last few years, so we might have to monitor our conversation first...

Therrien comments showed more ignorance than anything on Russia... and the funny part in all that is that the pictures from supposedly Siberia could have been easily talking in Gaspesia or Abitibi...

It's just pure moronic comments that's all...

But, what are we expecting from intellectually challanged people like Therrien, Chantelois, Brunet, and the other ones that I don't know their names...

I am really curious, I don't live in Quebec, does the population in Quebec share the same opinion ...just a minority or this is something common, a popular opinion?

The argument he uses isn't logical. The reason why those players aren't working hard (Kostitsyns, Pleks, Higgins) is because they are partying too much or are injured or whatever, it's not because they come from Belarus, Slovakia and USA.

Stupid sensationalism.

It's just like any other nation... a minority of stupid ignorants who make us look bad...

But, at least, we're not hiding it and we're trying to find solutions...

Stupidity is universal

This type of prejudice must stop... I can't believe a tv station as big as RDS/TSN have staff that are this backwards. Shame on them and I hope the journalist gets fired.

Send in letters people, these types of people need to be eliminated.

I just wonder what players from Quebec he's talking about... because he's right...let's get them in the lineup if they are better!

Notice he didn't call out Kovalev or Markov. Neither of those guys are playing well. Neither was Komisarek before he got hurt. And what about Koivu?

You're making him say things he hasn't say... he even said that "nationnalities aren't important to him"...

Yes, you could argue that he contradics himself, but he said it...

I sent a complaint to the CRTC and I really couldn't care less if they laughed or not. This type of journalism should not be allowed on televison. It's an attempt to rile up the fans and have them demand certain players off the team.

Why did he just single out the young, Euro guys? The older Euro (and NA) guys aren't playing well either...

Don't waste your time e-mailing RDS about it... like somebody said, they cater to the lowest common denominator and for them to be as good at it as they are, they definately hire the lowest common denominator from the top down.

Isn't RDS owned by Bell?

Bell would care. They would care alot. E-mail them and the CRTC.

thats on top of the fact that they can't understand that a guy like valetenko leaves his < 1 m contract to go back with his family and earn 4 times that. His family depends on him financially, and instead of looking at his decision in a rationnal way , they started to **** on the guy.

they are ignorant ... simple ...

the rds pannel ....

nothing to say about demers and joel bouchard .... and chantal

but seeing dave morissette say that a fight is the most important part of a hockey game, seeing brunet having nothing intelligent to say and flip floping on his positions, having gaston terrien as Prime time analyst , having that stephane guy who is just an idiot ... people arent that stupid in general here , and we are forced to endure their stupidities night after night ...

I prefer listening to a game on the radio than on rds on a 12 foot HD screen.

Don Cherry has made a career out of singling out Europeans and Quebecers.

He's on prime time, dontcha know, and probably the best paid hockey commentator in the country.

How many letters to the CRTC have you sent because of him?

When you're writing letters because of these clowns, it's really time to break out the xanax.

I'm not even close to be surprised. RDS say such comments week in week out, sometimes it's less noticeable.

Ouch... that's got to hurt...

Still, it's not a reason to not complain about these kind of comments... but I admit that there's kind of a double standard...

Although his agenda is painfully obvious, there's really no case against him.

Can they not find smarter announcers in Quebec than Morrisette?

There's a reason I don't watch CBC coverage..

How many times has RDS itself criticized Grapes? I clearly recall le moron chantelois bashing cherry last year. It's one of the biggest case of pot calling the kettle black.

Cherry and the CBC have been in hot water with the CRTC a number of times.

But you're right, Cherry type comments / Therrien type comments are the same thing. That's pretty obvious. Well, at least it should be.

See no one takes Don Cherry seriously, but there are people in this province who actually believe the crap Gaston Therrien is saying, that's the problem. He knows they'll believe him that's why he says it, he's playing with the minds of Quebecers who actually think that outside players are threatening them.
