Grant McCagg does some venting in regards to the negative media coverage of the Habs, in particular, from one specific source:

That was a great listen Grant. I have tuned out of TSN690 more often this year and definitely don’t listen to the Morning show. McKenna has turned it into a High School station. I refuse to partake in the “blame” game that pre-occupies a lot of their on air time.
A lot of us has had enough of their negative rhetoric that is not based in facts. Unfortunately it’s more important to be entertaining than objective.
The positive thing Grant is because of their poor journalism, it has brought some of us over to your site.
You and Brian keep us informed in an educated way. It’s what Hab’s fans deserve. Thank you for that.
Robert Fraser says
I loved it. You can only take so much sand being kicked in your face.
McKenna has 0 qualifications to talk about sports period. He’s a pompous miserable person with no reedeming qualities, & his best friend is Berkshire. Tells you a lot about his character.
Bill Shahidi says
I honestly think most media & some fans never got over PK trade and will never give Bergevin credit, even if/when he finally helps bring the Cup back to Montreal.
Paul Wong says
Hi Grant thanks to Brian joining your recrutes web site it has opened my eyes to your work. I too can’t stand TSN 690’s recent character assassination of the Habs. It’s no longer objective critcism. It’s just mean and negative. They have unfortunately lowered themselves to the agenda driving french media. TSN 690 over all is pissed that their “Boy” McGuire was not picked as GM, their source quote in the locker room PK was traded. I am surprised the on air announce team has remained intact pretty much for the past decade where other on air personalities on Bell media’s other english radio stations have been let go (CHOM ,CJAD , Mix etc)
Draft is such a crap shoot. So many things can intangibles effect a players development , Psychological , mental , in addition to the physical and skill development
Keep up the great work Grant
Awesome grant.the avg habs fan is negative now no doubt,we just dont accept losing.all we know is we didnt make the playoffs so lets blame the ones who put this shit ssn together.so the media is reflecting what the majority of us negative fans say,so tsn690 gets higher ratings. To me marinaro is a negative clown who stirs the pot on that station.he yells,screams etc,i cant stand marinaro.or galo.
Cheers grant..we luv recrutes,thanks for transforming us avg habs fans into super well informed fans.
Nice commentary, Grant. I also have been critical of Habs draft selections, but I am certainly willing to be patient to see how things work out.
