Richard Posted January 31, 2011 Share Posted January 31, 2011 I have never said i was 100% behind the provinces and how they run... but I have never ever purported to support the game and not pay the appropriate fees, you apparently see value in running your website as a business but council organisations or at least condone people like Colin Innes in Calagary hiding registrants as noted above. You apparently condone Quebec not paying and Manitoba not registering mini players and paying the eight dollars per player fee. On that basis you bet I think your morally wrong and deficient. Difference is Richard I believe in doing things to improve the game and its governance. Simply question Richard . Do you believe every club in Canada should have a direct vote for CSA board of Directors ? I do not condone the witholding of fees - that is not what I said and I apologise if that's how it came across - but I do understand the motivation to do so under the current circumstance. I do of course expect that any monies gathered in fees are properly and honestly accounted for to the players concerned, that I trust goes without saying. But without proper governance there is no game of consequence, it really is that simple. Where do you think Canadian soccer would be with no proper national governance? CSA governance reform is long overdue and I hope provincial governance reform follows. Yes, I have for several years in this forum and elsewhare consistently advocated for grassroots democratic election of directors at all levels of soccer governance in Canada, from the club through provincial to national associations, you're welcome to check my record. If it's good enough for our civil governance it is good enough for soccer. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
