I'm inclined to agree with HotHabs' comment below that "if the team was winning with an Anglo or Franco coach the fans would be thrilled." As is, the team is losing with overwhelmingly English-speaking players, yet no amount of fan discontent can trade the Captain, the erstwhile sniper (#13), or the Alaskan albatross. If Gomez could explain in French that he sucks, would we want to keep him? Would the collective rage of Francophone Habs fans toward RC or another Anglo coach be greater than that which is already directed toward our overpaid underachievers? If yes, it'd be merely a difference of degree, not kind; either way, it'd be of no real consequence. I've lived on both sides of St. Laurent over the past 6 years and it seems to me that the notion 'the coach must speak French' is nothing more than a media straw-man, as outdated as sovereignty.
