  1. A coach can seek a legal response even if he is fired "with due cause". Its no different than having this happen in the legal or medical profession, as losing such a license effectively ends your professional career. Its easy for people to come onto this thread and say someone is guilty without any real clear proof. Of course, those people are the same ones who end up paying in the end for spreading such stories. Unless there is someone prepared to seek an actual legal remedy, then it is better not to speak about the subject.
  2. You seem to have an issue telling the difference between administrative procedures and an actual legal case. Allegations doesn't equal wrongdoing.
  3. Actually, the ones who say that Victoria is a separate market are correct. Vancouver stations make no effort to reach out to Victoria viewers. Rogers only exists on OTA here as the transmitter hasn't broken down yet. Cable is the only way Vancouver stations can be reached and anything coming over the radio barely comes through most of the time. Its much easier to get media content from Bellingham and Seattle compared the Vancouver. A poorly set up webpage from New York shows how clueless people are about the market.
  4. But let's watch Bill Manning choke on his pizza.
  5. He finally realizes what MLSE is really about.
  6. Useless in Victoria. I have an antenna and the only networks I can get are CTV Vancouver Island and the Rogers stations in Vancouver (the latter have a rebroadcast transmitter based in Victoria).
  7. He can use all the cheese graters he wants to now.
  8. Someone bumped this thread. Now I feel old.
  9. Darts already has contracts with European sports channels. The deal is meant to make up the supposed lack of fans watching due to the time it is put on air in Canada.
  10. To be fair, I went by Westhills a couple of days ago and nothing hasn't been started on expansion for Pacific FC either.
  11. I guess that the Military Museums must be just the same as Calvary FC. ? Sorry, Calgary has been as part of the cities identity. Hard to ignore given that CFB Calgary used to occupy a large portion of the city including some land along the Bow River. Even the old home of Calgary soccer has military ties (Sorry, but its not Foothills). You cant erase that fact no matter how hard you try.
  12. I see that some Fury fanatics overdosed on the Ottawa moonshine today.
  13. I go away for 6 months. I come back and find that the Fury FO and fans are becoming as paranoid as the Sens FO and fans.
  14. This. Not owning the property hurts his overall value and also limits what he can leverage out of the club in regards to investment. Whitecaps would be in a similar position since they have to rent BC Place and leasing from UBC when WFC2 was running. The expansion money that is supposed to be coming in has to be taken with some considerations. The payouts that the teams get wouldn't be as great as thought with the $150M fee. USSF and SUM get their shares of the pie before any of the money trickles down to the teams. With it being divided equally and paid out over time, the amounts each team will get won't be as large. Miami would be getting in at a discount as MLS has to keep up its end of the bargain with Beckham & Co. They have to convince prospective owners that the price is worth it and someone will balk in the end.
  15. We should take into consideration that TFC seemed to be riding high and were a goal away from playing the likes of Real Madid.....six months ago. SIX MONTHS AGO Now TFC is out of the playoffs as the bench strength wasn't as deep as people thought. Winning the CCL helps alleviate the issues but now you have fans getting tired as winning the title might not matter much, especially if TFC can't repeat even a good performance in the CONCACAF CL. The emergence of a new league would certainly worry the MLS clubs as younger players now have a viable option to further their careers than playing for TFC II or whatever the Caps and Impact can provide. Ottawa certainly has to have this worry themselves as the non-local talent is considering their options.
