Lower Mainland: now you flip your error and say "owners". AFAIK Rob Friend was the owner (one of three) who wanted the Lower Mainland. Simpson is an Island boy and Shillington, as the aforesaid "business guy" probably only cared about the best deal/market. You think we will struggle, I think we will be in the mix for top of the table. We'll see in 2019. Yeah, sorry, I should have said "the primary owner who is almost certainly providing the bulk of the money has stated on the record that he wants a lower salary cap and also very clearly wanted a team in the lower mainland more than on the Island". And I'd be surprised if Friend and Simpson are much more than figure heads. I'm not saying they have no money invested, but I would be very surprised if ownership investment is anywhere near equal, and I would strongly suspect that any losses will be primarily born by Shillington. Nash is an owner in Vancouver. I don't at any time think he's the driving force of the finances. I suspect that's the same case for Friend and Simpson. And there's nothing wrong with that. I'm guessing literally every single fan base thinks they're going to be "in the mix for the top of the table in 2019." Reality is someone will finish bottom. I'm saying I would not at all be surprised if Victoria is in that mix. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
