  1. How is this going to work? Will they play cross division? Seems like costs are going to be through the rood if they don't.
  2. ^I would say so, its the CSA award. Otherwise there is a midfielder returning to his North England Club very soon, a Keeper in the South of England and a brother in Holland that might win next year.
  3. That would be cool in False Creek as the temporary stadium instead of empire.
  4. The closest official* bar to Swangard is The Great Bear Pub which is about 3.5 km away. http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=175-5665+Kingsway&sll=49.238,-122.985592&sspn=0.057161,0.152607&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=5665+Kingsway,+Burnaby,+Greater+Vancouver+Regional+District,+British+Columbia&ll=49.22595,-122.994175&spn=0.029989,0.076303&t=h&z=14 * Official meaning they are one of the officially pubs on the Caps Card (which gives you a discount)
  5. The money from SuperLiga flows into SUM and not CONCACAF. I'm sure CONCACAF would want control of it, but there is no benifit for SUM to give up this control.
  6. Well they never won the USL, this will be their last chance.
  7. Victoria's main problem is there simply isn't the corporate support. When tourist, government and education are the main industries a sports team is going to have trouble. As an example of how little white collar jobs there are, in the last decade about two dozen 10+ story condos have gone up downtown, and only two 5 story office buildings. I work in one of those and there is a ton of empty space in it. My floor is 2/3 empty.
  8. Let me say though that the highlanders are doing alot right. The staff are doing a great job, and Campbell's pumping alot of money into the team. Last season was most enjoyable, and I can't wait to see where they take it this season.
  9. From everyone I talked to they are staying in the PDL.
  10. I loved that stuff. I never got to eat it except when I stayed at my grandmothers. I do remember how it left your mouth feeling raw though.
  11. ^Does the Dodgers not count as they moved? They were founded in the mid-1850s. Also the Boston Red Stockings (Now Atlanta Braves, 1871), Chicago White Stockings (Now the Cubs Oddly, 1870) are older than the Argos (1873). Point taken though, the team is old.
  12. Yup, Since the shootout was introduced I have thought it should be 3 points for a win in Regulation, 2 points for an overtime win, and 1 for an ot loss.
  13. And contrary to rumblings that tacit agreements are already in place between Canada's professional clubs to stay off each other's lawn, Whitecaps co-owner Jeff Mallett says Vancouver supports a free market system. "There are no [Canadian] territories established on the player side of things," Mallett said. "Will that change? It's under discussion, but we're big believers in may the best programs win. We are proponents of an open market." http://www.whitecapsfc.com/archive/feature11270902.aspx
  14. Problem is they hope to use BC Place for 300 dates a year. Even if they put them on plates and bring in and out, Real grass simply isn't going to work. Don't get me wrong I would love natural grass, but I can't see it happening.
