anti CSA banners and chants

Toronto Ruffrider hit the nail on the head with his idea. During the height (or low) of Kevin Pipe's reign of terror, a banner was made with a drawing of a pipe in a red circle with a line through it with the words "pipe out". It was displayed in Edmonton in the WCQ against Australia and it didn't survive the first half. Some security wanker yoinked it. Anyway, we must must must come up with clever, to the point, easy to read banners for the Costa Rica match. Being here in Vancouver, I'm about four time zones away from a real stadium, so I won't get to see the team play for quite a long time. I will try to come up with some ideas, as well as chants.

Someone else said something about the timing of Mr. Linford's resignation, just as the men's team is looking the best it's been for a long time. That's very true, and yes, the players will be distracted, or threaten to strike as they did against Australia, and they'll play crappy and we won't qualify for the World Cup when we have the best chance we've had in years.

I feel sick.

Again...where are we getting this idea from? The players have been un-impressed with the CSA bureacracy for years, I don't see why it would be a distraction when World Cup Qualifying begins in about 10 months from now (at which point a new President will likely be in place who may be just as promising or just as useless as those in the past). And some of the players seemed to disagree with his plan to bring in a different coaching staff to Hart & Mitchell.

I liked Colin Linford because he seemed to want to get things done (if not always the right thing), he seemed in tune with the fans (that last interview he did strongly suggests he read this board) and I liked his bias towards the men's national team. But I'm not ready to jump off a bridge either because he's gone.

Point taken. I was just really surprised to read about his resignation, so I didn't think how long it was going to be until we might have a replacement to either be encouraged by or sickened by. However, I'm sure the CSA in general is a distraction to the players. They are constantly doing stupid things. For example: During qualification for (I believe it was the 1990) World Cup, the visiting teams were allowed to practise at Swangard, but our own team wasn't. Just general ineptitude and seemingly doing anything possible to discourage people from following the team, discourage the media from covering the team, etc. Whenever I think about the CSA, my blood boils.

I hear ya. Though I thought we might have gotten his resignation when Simoes didn't get hired so I wasn't too surprised. Now that the U20 WC is out of the way & Mitchell has been hired the timing did seem a little bit strange, but I guess whatever argument is brewing over Nykamp was the last straw for him.

It will be interesting to hear what he has to say tomorrow - and what reply there will be from the CSA in response - if any!

Guys, this is more than a protest banner. This should be the start of a new movement that will finish-off the monopoly of the incompetent CSA. Let's start a new association. Let's also change the name to the Canadian Football Association.

We know that's not going to happen Luis.

Perhaps the "Canadian Association Football

Association?" :D

Who would the members of your new association be?

If it ends up somebody is too lazy to make a banner, here is a modified version of "Another brick in the wall" by Pink Floyd

We don't need no T Director

We don't need no CEO

We don't need no President

Linford leave these things alone ...

Hey! Linford, leave those things alone

All in all you're just another brick in the wall

But only of course if the sarcasm would be recognised. Feel free to vote for this song in the songbook ;)

If we make a banner then it has to be quick and to the point:

"The Voyageurs - for country and players only"

"Stand for Canada. Sit for the CSA"

"CSA: 1912-2007"

"Osieck for President" ; )

any other suggestions?

for some reason BeMOan the CSA the BMO letters from the bank logo
