  1. My feel with the Habs thing, maybe the Canadiens feel the site’s name gives the impression it belongs to them and want to dissociate themselves with any posts the HIO crew make in case it makes them look bad. Just a guess.

  2. marjo, i think that is the case……………………………………… here in ontario premier mcgimpy has pushed thru a tax where by anyone using the word habs in a public forum will pay a fee. of course the habs, oh i mean les canadiens will recieve a 50% split of all monies accrued. initial feed back indicates ontarians are comfortable with the new tax as they are accustom to and like taking it up the ass.
