  1. From my understanding, the Hamilton party will be running off of OneSoccer
  2. I was going to mention that location, given Melnyk was talking about putting the Sens there. I was going to ask, would a smaller, outdoor venue that would still allow the Ottawa Blue's Fest to continue at the location work?
  3. Hey guys, just got word from the owner Greg via Text. Viewing party for the Canada vs USA game will be at EndZone at 7pm Nov 15th.
  4. Just got word. Hamilton's viewing party will be at EndZone: Bar & Grill https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Sports-Bar/The-EndZone-Bar-Grill-118875491799843/
  5. I think it depends on who we draw and who we lose.
  6. This is true. For years (probably up until the Argos were bought by MLSE) Sportsnet routinely would either, ignore, demean or have it's radio anchors slag the CFL because they don't own the rights to them. Sadly, the CPL isn't quite big enough that coverage is somewhat mandatory.
  7. Just got email from the club, looks like CONCACAF League game is August 1st. Just thought I'd test the waters and ask, what do you think our chances are against GFC Antigua?
  8. Yes, and the reason why is fining is not an effective form of discipline in professional sports. It's a slap on the wrist. So what other methods of discipline are there? The only other I can think of is an automatic yellow at the start of the next match, but suddenly the purists will be up in arms. So let me qualify my remarks then. 1 and 3, player safety is involved which, frankly should carry even longer suspensions then diving should. Diving is 1 game, with cumulative suspensions for repeat behavior player safety is minimum 1 for reckless play, minimum 2 for intentional with additional games for repeat behavior and more tacked on depending on severity and if injury is caused. IE: 1 and 3 are more severe offenses and warrant potentially longer suspensions.
  9. Overhead? Are you kidding me? It's re-watching the game, looking at the replays, something that should already be a part of ref evaluation. It's a few hours of extra work at most. As far as the real game? What? How is players striking other players when the back is turned part of the game? How is diving part of the game, and should be rewarded? How is injuring people needlessly part of the game? Getting these items out of the game, should be everyone's priority and frankly, striking other players and clear dives are unambiguous, as is actually causing an injury.
  10. I disagree here. You already have only one ref. Stuff is going to get missed with one ref. You should always have a post-game review of the entire match, and the following items should always suffer suspensions. 1) Players that strike other players when the ref's back is turned 2) Clear dives where no contact is made and the intent is to draw a foul 3) Engaging in play that caused injury that was either intentional or incredibly reckless.
  11. You're right, but this is a rare time I'd like to see us stand on principal, set an example and showed the world "We started reviewing and punishing diving, and it cleaned it up and got it out of the game" and then maybe some other nations start doing the same.
  12. Yeah, there was a lot of diving by Cavalry as I saw it that the ref rewarded. Escalante should receive a game for how blatant his were. As far as the high boot, that should have been called, and the game ended there. As far as the card on the goalie, it should have been a yellow, but was a penalty kick, all day. Too many mistakes from the ref in my eyes, who should be made to sit out the rest of the V-Cup for his performance. Maybe I have my team colored glasses on, but that's how I saw it.
  13. I though Cavalry was rewarded far too much for diving that game. That was one of those games that should be reviewed after the fact and suspensions handed out (in particular of Escalante) for the practice.
  14. If I had to pick one, it would be hoops, because there is more history. For example the old Football Tigers and the infamous 60s-80s Tiger-Cats with the hoops on the sleeves. Additionally the old Hamilton Tigers hockey club had an affinity for hoops in their later years the same jersey that the Bulldogs of today have as their 3rd jersey. and of course the single white hoop of the Hamilton Steelers Generally the only time stripes have been used were the first Hamilton Tigers hockey team run. http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b154/spyboy1/TSG Blog 3/?action=view&current=1920-21HamiltonTigersteam.jpg
  15. I think it was posted on the Battalion's twitter account at some point. I changed the chains to be grey in color so it would have some Grey. There was also a black and gold one which I may switch to.
