RDS has sunk to a new low...

Please, I beg you to watch the video of Gaston Therrien. He literally claims that the brothers are stealing roster spots of Quebec born players. Moreover he claims they threatened the team to back to Russia if they were not played.

This is false and cheap journalism, they are trying to turn the fans against our team's own players just to promote Quebecois players, it's just appauling.

I sent a formal complaint to the station and suggest you do the same. This xenophobia and propaganda has to end!

Please send in your messages showing your anger against this cheap and petty journalism, it's truly disgusting!

I am really starting to hate rds!

I was just coming here to complain about the same thing... he told them to go back to siberia. He also mentions that these lazy players are taking the spots of "our quebecers" who don't deserve to be benched. Oh and according to Gaston Therrien, O'Byrne doesn't have to clear waivers.

I really think it's mob mentality; they are all choosing to see the exact same thing. Somehow the whole RDS crew thought AK sucked last games.. when everyone here thinks he was our best forward last two games. It started with le moron chantelois and now it's the rest of the gang as well.

It's abosolutly disgusting, I am actually in a fit of rage. This is insulting to the team as well. They are trying to start a "nous" vs "les autres" battle. Claiming "the russians" are "stealing" spots from "our own talent"

And he literally says "Go back to your country"

Its sad really. Id like to see the shoe on the other foot. Wouldnt it be a hoot to hear someone call down Gaston in the media and say he was stealing a spot of a real journlist from Quebec.



all this and were 10-5-2

happy centennial from RDS

There's a reason I watch the game on CBC or TSN whenever possible.

RDS has gone down the tubes. It's almost painful to watch the games on it.

That being said, I'm grateful they air every game because a lot of fans don't have that luxury.

Nothing new there, Michel Bergeron says Higgins doesn't want to give an effort because he's playing with Kostopoulos. Le Baron is speculating that Carbo doesn't want to scratch the Kost bros because they will goo play in the KHL.

Also, not such a big deal, but RDS reported today that the lines were the same at practice this morning;

Kovy - Koivu - Tanguay
...
S. Kost - Lang - A.Kost

I can't believe that those Hockey experts they hire are a bunch of incompetents.

P.S. Just watched the video, GASTON THERRIEN, C'EST UN HOSTI D'IMBÉCILE. YÉ PAS MIEUX QUE LE GROS CAVE QUI SE PRÉNOMME "LE BARON".

If it's blatant racist comments, send it to the CRTC.

RDS is a private business who's only goal is to maximize profits for their shareholders, if having a guy catering to bigots is a favorable for ratings, then they will and should do it.

If you don't like it, you're free to change the channel, watching hockey on TV is not a right, and you shouldn't take personal offense when something is said that you don't agree with.

Aren't there more important things you could be fighting for besides making sure private TV stations don't offend anyone ?

"SHOULD" is not the same as "WILL". They definitely should not do it.

What kind of Quebec company attacks a Quebec institution like the Montreal Canadiens?

It's silly. Stupid argument too, we take the best players we can find wherever we find them. There are more Quebec players on the team now than in a long while. Plus, it's xenophobic, something Quebec doesn't need more of, that's for sure.

It's not racism... but could be considered discriminatory... I doubt they'll lose any sleep over it...

Let's see, using access to public communication to push an agenda has never been used for evil before? =\ You may want to read a few history books......

In other news I just listen to it on CJAD which may not be great but it's better. At least the commentary isn't bigoted.

Are you really comparing a guy who gets almost double the ice-time than either as well as more PP time.. not to mention better players than Sergei has played with all year..

Well, yeah, it depends on the comments. I didn't hear it.

If it's general neanderthal hockey talk, fine.

If it's actual racist slurs....they may well have a problem.

The "go to siberia" posted here and the like may well be a problem.

I don't think there are enough Russians on RDS, that's the problem.

The bottom line is that the are a private business who's only goal is to make money for their shareholders, and they have a moral responsability to act on whatever they think will maximize profits.

They are not making anyone watch their channel, and are not making anyone pay for it, if you want to stop watching RDS or cancel your subscription because of it, you are free to do so, but trying to tell them what they can or can't say on their own network is not only a waste of time, its also an attempt to infringe on someone's basic rights.

I agree 100%. They are the Fox News of Quebec. They are trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Somebody has to take their money.

The same argument applies to Don Cherry though.

And that doesn't mean you can't complain either.

You know what though, If i'd go on CTV and say "Qubecers are a bunch of ignorant racists" I'd get rip to pieces by the population and this should be no different.
