Not really. It took them less than 5 minutes to say it was an April Fools'.

i mean the april fools prank has been negatively received. given some fans attitudes on the cpl, i'm surprised no one is praising this as a work of art.

They deleted a tweet 1 hour before that said April's Fools.

Maybe that was part of the "joke"

I honestly thought the big announcement was still coming despite the April Fools joke.

Had lunch and realized that was probably it.

It would have been a better April Fool's joke if they didn't set this up with yesterday's message saying "massive announcement tomorrow". Who sets up an April Fool's joke that way? If they just did this thing out of the blue I would have smiled and thought it was clever but by pre-cursing it with yesterday's announcement? ......?

I liked the story out of Brighton and Hove today though, that is how you do it:

In Spain they do this on December 28th, the day of the Holy Innocents. Here is one of the best this last year,  when a Spanish league basketball team brought in an actor as their new signing, and he trained with them, the other players were freaking out:

And that arrived in my in box at 3:23pm on Monday April 1st (oh is that the joke?) the 2nd is actually Tuesday!  
Or is the joke that registration is already over!  I tried and it received an automated 'we'll be contacting you'. Hopefully they mean register by Tuesday April 2nd at noon and the e-mail was just prepared by the person who prepared the design of thousands of team postcards of the York 9 FC home matches schedule for Alumni Field (OK I give them the stadium switch may have been unknown at the time) but their first game against Blainville listed as 'Saturday May 22 Time TBD' and then had the Saturday Sharpied out because that is a Wednesday!

Ben Fisk said the same thing. Apparently we're more sharp on Twitter.

I'd guess it has something to do with them maybe not saying they have an announcement today on Instagram?

No, it’s tomorrow now. They probably decided to bump it up last second to make up for today’s April Fool’s **** show lol ?

What time do you reckon it's launched then? I can't find this info anywhere ?
