how they were discriminated?
What did the French speaking player's do to stand up?
Bobby Holik (a retired hockey player) said that he fights for his ice-time more than Ontario-born or raised hockey player's. Bob Sirois (a former hockey player) in the NHL wrote a book called "discrimination in the NHL". The cover of the book has a bull wearing a red hockey uniform and in front of the bull is a frog wearing a blue hockey uniform. Bob Sirois demonstrates how the NHL is discriminating French-hockey player's. Most of the hockey player's also reported this issue to the NHL. I think the French hockey player's shouldn't have to stand up I think Gary bettman (the commissioner of the NHL) should have at least tried to resolve this issue or at least look at it. Bobby Holik and bob sirois are brave people to have the confidence to stand up to the people that are obsessed with winning the game those two players are people who actually enjoy the game and understand what hockey is about. Player's that like to call other players named are only trying to make the opposite teammate mad so they can win the game which is not the real goal in hockey. Some player's have had eyes, noses, teeth and legs broken for example: Willie o'ree had his two front teeth knocked out and got his nose broken he also got called a racial slur just because he was black.
