  1. You're correct. I could claim a typo or lack of coffee, I'm not really sure how I miscounted. PDL teams are used to play-in rounds. It's a part of how they determine who gets into the playoffs here, so that may go over alright. That being said, why bother calling it a play-in? Just call it the first round and be done with it. The Calgary Foothills moved to Okotoks this past year to ensure they could continue. I'd expect them to roll out with another high-calibre PDL club again next year. Despite WSA Winnipeg's 0-14-0 record this past season, I have confirmed with the owner th
  2. There has been no further movement since the failed request quite some time ago. It isn't surprising considering the proposal was so incredibly weak. Neither PDL club was interested in the league as it was proposed. The did receive a couple of inquiries form the PCSL clubs, but there was little differentiation between the PCSL and the proposed league, with the exception of increased costs. As a result, there was little incentive to move over. The potential is there, if BC Soccer were to propose more than a summer-only league in a way that would make sense for investors. Thi
  3. How do you decide which PDL team to leave out? There are 4 and all have confirmed they are continuing play next year.
  4. Is PLSQ not streaming any of their matches this year? I was hoping to catch a few (mostly AS Blainville), but have been unable to find any links.
  5. Guaranteed, I won't be able to see games live. Can I still buy merch, beer, and have fun? Ok, I'll probably fly out to 1 match a year. Planning to choose a different stadium each year. Since I'm attending the match in Hamilton this year, their CanPL team will probably be at the bottom of the list.
  6. "Confirmed" Highlanders to Canadian Premier League. Also "Confirmed" the 13+ Municipal Areas that are commonly mistaken as "Victoria" are finally amalgamating! Ok... Neither of those things are actually confirmed, but as far as CanPL rumours go, that's how this should totally read.
  7. Another interesting note from yesterday's matches: all 3 eliminated teams gained 5 points, and all 3 advancing teams managed 9. I wonder if that'll carry through, or if we can expect something a little crazier.
  8. Great job Kent. Please keep this up. If it pans out as you suspect, I may be able to use this to determine multipliers in order to better set the CL and CCL elo rating spots for NSXI. Only an opening round in, and I'm already very dissatisfied with using the average of the CAN/US sides. I knew I would be, but really didn't have much to use (that was easily accessible) in order to weigh them better. I look forward to seeing how this all pans out.
  9. Buy the tickets. I lived in Victoria last few years, and loved being at the matches. The team's game-day improved quite a bit last year over the previous, and that's on a very shoe-string budget. Sadly, I'm now at the other end of the country, so I'll have to settle for watching the online stream this year. I'm pretty optimistic about this new ownership group. Highlanders were doing a good job reaching back into the youth soccer community, and I feel like that's going to expand immensely in 2018. The new ownership group has some really good ties in Victoria, so I would expect to see them
  10. I inquired with BC Soccer concerning this recently. There have been no changes since the idea was "temporarily put on hold"
  11. I think you mean northernstartingeleven.com . I get the feeling CanPL Hub is going to focus more on the supporter culture surrounding Canadian Premier League, and perhaps serve as a sort of archive for CanPL news and the like. Honestly, I'm not sure what to expect, but I definitely welcome more places out there to get different opinions and news for the league. Either way, I'm hopeful they'll be down for occasional post swaps, both with NSXI and with other Canadian soccer news/opinion sites.
  12. I'm really disappointed in the format that was chosen, especially since we were originally told that the PLSQ and L1O teams would not be facing each other in an opening round. They've earned their place and deserve to play against the pros. Hopefully this is the only year that plays out this way and the CanPL (and maybe PDL) teams are allowed in for the 2019 version.
  13. Next season, if you choose to run it again, screw the penalties. Just keep adding 30 minutes and ramping up the player's exhaustion level until we get a winner. To that effect, you may also wish to add a stamina stat of some sort.
  14. That was a great series with Scarborough. I was actually pulling for you to get the upset, because that would be a pretty good storyline, but I'm happy to take the cup as well. Thanks for running this @Gopherbashi. It was a lot of fun throughout the year.
  15. Thanks! I'll have to google translate, but it's a good start.
  16. Do you happen to have a link to the announcement or club? I'd like to read a bit more on the newcomers.
  17. Thanks. It would have been a tough overturn. Porc needed to lose while Beav won, or Porc needed to draw while Beav won by a crazy number of goals. Personally, I was kinda hoping for the later because that would be an awesome match to read through the 90+ pages of highlights, but it would have been pretty brutal for their opponent.
  18. Looks like it still wouldn't have happened. It truly came down to that last match to lock in the the top spot. I love it. I'm glad there's a bit of a break until the next matches get underway. I'll be getting regular internet back on Oct 17th, so I'll be able to allot my points and prepare for the Paul Bierne Challenge Cup. Beaverton took the Voyaguers, Porcupine managed the Montagliani, it'll be kinda cool if someone else manages some upsets to take the Bierne.

  20. Sorry for the delay. Packing for a big move across the country. I should be able to get up Wednesday's update, but will likely be unable to get any others up until October when I'm semi-settled at the other end.

  21. Honestly, a head-to-head battle for the Montagliani right near the end is what I'm hoping to see. Gotta keep everyone guessing. It's even more interesting considering that both Porcupine & Beaverton came from the same division in the DRFL Open. It's going to be a heck of a ride!
  22. CS Mont-Royal Outremont walked through the league last year and had already won the league at this point. This year, AS Blainville is basically doing the same, and they were the only team to beat CSMRO last season. Those two are top-team for PLSQ, and would compete close with the top teams in L1O (even beating the winner last year in the Interprovicial Cup). The next couple clubs are regularly mediocre, and the new teams continue to struggle (as OFFC Reserves did last year). It's a part of how they generally form the teams. There are a number of players that dropped to PLSQ and L1O with t

Sports Club Stats are now updated: DRFL-1: Biggest gain: Porcupine +22.4 Biggest loss: Beaverton - 22.6 Full stats: http://www.sportsclubstats.com/You/DRFL1.html This is the 1st time since the league-split where Porcupine leads based on points. Because I keep track of some of my team's stats, here's a few tidbits (would be interested in seeing others if you got'm): The team's top scorer is Losier (F) with 36 goals The 2nd best scorer, Ringstead (M) with 24 goals, scored 5 in today's match against Saskatoon The keeper, Vien, is on a 3-match
