  1. We chatted with some people after the game and turns out the club was giving out free tickets at Vaughan Mills. But it seems like it was a good decision. One of these people happened to have worked for the Lynx over a decade ago, and they were so impressed by how professional the set up was. He had a lot of fun at the game, but his only skepticism is with the pitch. He said he'd be watching to away leg to judge how the squad performs. He said he'd definitely go buy tickets to more games
  2. While I am happy to have the CSL (and I am sure onesoccer will pick up some subscribers from hardcore fans), most overseas Chinese do not really follow the league - they tend to watch European football like everyone else. I wouldn't even say the CSL has a big following in HK, hardcore supporters follow the local HK League and usually only have eyeballs on the Chinese clubs when we play against them in champions league.
  3. I was at the game, and have been very critical of turnout and york 9 marketing. This was a decent turnout. Does it match the levels of Halifax and Forge? Of course not. But it's an improvement and shows that we can get crowds at a more sustainable level when the weather is a little better. The ownership just needs to hire more staff and put more money into marketing, instead of relying on volunteers to take on some of the tasks.
  4. The amsl equivalent in bc would probably be the Pacific Coast soccer league.
  5. Ya, from my vantage point, I thought I saw Gen 9 folks pushing and punching random Hamilton fans. I later heard that a Hamilton fan spat at the Gen 9 folks after some chirping back and forth... either way a terrible look. We don't need this sorta thing in the CanPL
  6. I just got home, and I am beyond livid at York 9 FC. We all want the team to succeed, but what a terrible first impression. I was one of the lucky few who found shelter inside the building and were let back into the stadium before the start of the game. But I too was told by a security guard that the game was cancelled (but I knew better). Also heard from many others told the same thing (felt crappiest for fans who apparently travelled from as far as Montreal and Victoria but ended up leaving). And as Gopher mentions, completely appalling that families and well anyone was sent away from the overhangs. Security could have at least directed people to nearby campus buildings if they felt overhangs were unsafe. There was pretty much no communication throughout the weather. And after all this mess, security had the gall to recheck my ticket, when I walked back to the supporters section. ---- And I forgot to mention, security decided it was a good idea to funnel both Hamilton and York 9 supporters through the same exit. Unsurprisingly, fights broke out. Shame on the fans that fought but the management could've avoided it.
  7. Reminder that the pioneer Village Commuter Parking Lot is free on weekend s
  8. 100% agree. I still think the league should be providing a living wage at the minimum level and you'll need a union for that. As a byproduct, it'll also drastically improve the level of players (not that I am complaining)
  9. They were there ( I assume you mean the bucket seats), but weirdly enough they were placed right below the stands instead of the tracks, putting some distance away from the pitch.
  10. You can pay $2 at pioneer Village Commuter lot. Its a 5 min walk.
  11. I was wrong sight lines suck in that stand. Bench blocks it
  12. I would be surprised if sight line was the issue. The bleachers in question (see my photos below) are raised. But this is certainly mysterious, and is begging for a proper journalist to ask questions. The whole stadium issue has been concerning. Add this to what I had heard about York U apparently footing most of the renovations (which pisses me off to no ends as an employee of the University).
  13. From what i heard, the York Lion pitch is actually below regulation (which is why that friendly with the Italian team was abruptly moved to OSC). But apparently York has a one year excemption from CSA.
  14. Unfortunately, it pays better than what CanPL offers at the moment. Hopefully, by next year, wages will go up.
  15. I know York hasn't looked great, but Murofushi has been consistently solid, tidy passing, and even managed well defensively today with a number of blocks and tackles. Estevez-tsai needs to be more consistent but he's shown glimmers of creativity and neat passing, including today's lead up to the adjei miss. Gattas, we still haven't seen enough of but he was massive today vs Pacific
