  1. As Mr Alex would say on "I'm on Setanta Sports", "What an absolute disgrace". Absolutely pathetic display. Mitchell should be canned a sent packing to a remote northern island, like in Nunavut.
  2. I was in Houston for the 2005 Gold Cup. Reliant Stadium was packed almost with all Mexican fans with their game against Jamaica. I would love to see Canada host some of the 2009 Gold Cup games. However I unfortunately understand why CONCACRAP play all the Gold Cup games in the United States or Mexico is because it is a cash cow. Canada deserves to host one.
  3. Well I called again the Winnipeg Alliance FC office today. No answer. Just the answering machine. What else is new.
  4. The only thing that was "new" in recent time of the Alliance website was that they would be playing at the MTS Centre. Oh the joys of professional indoor soccer and how goofy it can be.
  5. I believe it was the PASL pro league and not the Winnipeg Alliance that announced these dates on their website.
  6. Latest update is this. I actually called the PASL Pro commishiner. He is aware of the Bob Dylan concert. According to him, he said that Denver will fly to Calgary for November 2nd, which is what they are working on. This gets stranger and stranger. Only in Winnipeg would a game get cancelled because of the MTS Centre booking Bob Dylan. This is a joke, almost.
  7. Well I called the Winnipeg Alliance. All I got was an answering machine. I have also called a representative at the MTS Centre. It looks like that Bob Dylan HAS BEEN BOOKED for the MTS CENTRE November 2nd, while NOTHING HAS BEEN BOOKED FOR NOVEMBER 1st. I Hope they can get their act together, but it looks like The Alliance are going to be the butt of jokes for the CMISL, yet again. I hope not.
  8. I noticed this as well on the MTS Centre website. I swear only a few days ago that the Bob Dylan concert was not advertised on the MTS website. Now it is. I think I am going to call the alliance and see what is going on. This gets stranger and stranger every day.
  9. I am hoping they can get 3000-5000/ a game. However, I have already read that some PASL pro clubs have already began training camp. It is almost frustrating that the CMISL has not come out with a schedule, outside the four PASL inter league games. It is true that the media did not cover the horrible 0-14 record. However, I am wondering if they are 0-8 to start where the support will be. I am hoping so, but people want to see results to.
  10. Right there, the Alliance could have fit there whole home part of their 2008 schedule. It baffles me to be honest as to why the Alliance said that "they could not get a date at the MTS Centre". Conspiracy theory here.
  11. I have heard from sources that the Alliance owner has been trying to sell the team or a share of it.
  12. In my opinion, I think the Alliance and the MTS Centre should be blamed 50/50. For starters, Great point DoyleG, The MTS Centre definately needs to learn more about juggling dates. Here is a scenario that may happen in a few years (unlikely but never know). Right now in Winnipeg there are, if you include the Winnipeg Alliance four professional sports teams (two in the summer: Winnipeg Goldeyes and Winnipeg Blue Bombers) and two in the winter (Manitoba Moose and now the Winnipeg Alliance). Both the Moose and Alliance play at the MTS Centre. Now lets say in 2009, Winnipeg (hypothetically) i
  13. the problem is the Alliance already booked the MTS Centre. Another problem I guess with Winnipeg, there really is no medium arena. There is either the MTS Centre, which despite as much as a lovely professional indoor soccer venue as it is, it is too big. The Max Bell arena and St. James Civic Centre would be better fits, but could be too small (not likely). Winnipeg needs a medium arena that fits around 3000-5000 people for a CMISL, NBA development, AFL2, NLL type of minor pro sports plus the Western Hockey League, a part of the ameteur CHL.
  14. For everyone's information. Max Bell Arena at the University of Manitoba seats 1600, while the St. James Civic Centre seats around 1500. Considering that the CMISL's average attendance was below that last year, I am sure the Alliance would have no trouble doing well at either venue, if they wanted to.
  15. That is the response I got from the Winnipeg Alliance rep. 4000-7000. I think that is really, really lofty, considering that Winnipeg played all there home games on the road, because they could not get a date at the MTS Centre last year because the MTS centre had priority on concerts. It left a bad taste in my mouth. I personally think they would have been better off at the St. James Civic Centre or Max Bell Centre. But still though, the MTS Centre can be a great venue for indoor soccer though. It was fun to watch the Alliance's showcase game there a year and a half ago.
  16. Jason, have to agree with you. About a month or five weeks ago, I heard that the Winnipeg Alliance got the MTS centre booked this season. So about three weeks ago, I had called someone at the Winnipeg Alliance office. They said that they would be at the MTS Centre again. When I asked why not something like Max Bell Arena or St. James Civic Centre, they said they ARE AIMING for 4000-7000 PER GAME. They also said tickets would be $15 for adults and $10 for youth. I asked if there was a schedule out. They said no and that in three weeks there would be one. Well Three weeks have passed and
  17. I have created a Facebook Group in the idea of trying to get rid of Dale Mitchell. If you type Dale Mitchell in search you will get CSA, get rid of Dale Mitchell. Then join the group.
  18. Arrgh. This cheeses me off soo much. I think Mitchell has to go now!!!!
  19. Lars has kept this game from being a blowout. Why didn't he start against jamaica??
