Nothing to understand! | The Journal of Montreal


By thinking well, by believing that anyone who has made a mistake is entitled to a second chance, Gabriel Gervais has put his feet in the dishes in the Sandro Grande affair.

Yesterday, the president of CF Montreal sat in the dock to say he took full blame for this fiasco.

Will his about-face and his apologies be enough to calm popular discontent?

Maybe, probably, who knows?

Where were their heads?

Gervais is reputed to have a good head. It is said to be calm and thoughtful. This is the impression he gives off to people who meet him for the first time.

People who know him well are overwhelmed that he was able to offer Grande a position. They didn’t think Gervais was the type to mix business and friendship.

If he takes all the blame on his shoulders, the fact remains that he was not alone in the hiring process.

So how do you explain that no one in the team’s management raised a red flag when they considered Grande’s candidacy?

Was there no one in the group to remind us that we do not want the assassination of a prime minister or the death of anyone?

No politician or politician, regardless of our allegiances, deserves this.

Democracy down the drain!

It was doubtless not the first time that Madame Marois had heard such ignominy. But to say that it comes with the function is not a reason either.

It is inexcusable and unacceptable.

Grande was not just attacking the Prime Minister, he cursed the Quebec sovereignists whom he called — and I quote — fat settlers without class and imbeciles.

Hello, democracy!

There will be some to say that this affair is just a storm in a teacup and that Quebeckers are whiners anyway.

To those, let’s say: let’s be proud, damn it!

Let’s stop being a towel.

Nothing changes

This sad episode demonstrates, once again, this chronic inability specific to CF Montreal to maintain a positive image with its supporters and the community.

After having had its best season in MLS last year, the organization let go of its coach Wilfried Nancy, sold the contracts of Ismaël Koné, a local product, Djordje Mihailovic and Alistair Johnston to foreign teams. Transfers of players may be part of the nature of soccer, we are not used to that at home. It is not by getting rid of your best players that you can hope to fill your stadium with each match.

For his part, new coach Hernan Losada came to Montreal preceded by a reputation as a torturer. He said he learned from his mistakes, but we’ll watch him go to see what it’s really about.
