Newbie (1/14)



  1. There is always a lot of people traveling in to BC Place from the other side of the infamous bridges so one can expect that there are a decent amount of people who would be happy to stay outside the city for their pro footy experience. I think a more key issue is game day experience and especially what supporter culture there will be on the ground. Much like The Lake Side Buoys were integral to PFC’s launch in a BC suburb, activating a group like The Swangardians might be the way home.
  2. There was some of this with the LSBs and PFC A year ago and that relationship turned out just fine. It’s probably more of a positive sign of heightened expectations
  3. No no no. He must have been referring to the unsigned U-sports players that DC confirmed are available to be signed by AtleticO
  4. A Theo Bair loan from VWFC would be perfect. The big club has 3 good to decent options up top and he’d do well to have the opportunity to star in his home town.
  5. A few more as in 3-4? Try a few more decades. That said, it’s hard not to see at least 2/3 come home eventually.
  6. They should add on a couple spears and make a giant trident idol for the faithful
  7. If I follow what you are saying, I agree with some of that. Yes, ultimately, I think we should want true equity with standards that go both ways. Men should also not be made to feel like objects. I think we just have to acknowledge that men and women are currently in much different places in how they are treated in this sphere.
  8. I agree that it’s worse to comment on her specific clothing but even her attractiveness should be offside for what is essentially a professional peer of hers to comment on.
  9. Everyone has an impression of everyone else’s level of attractiveness, of course. We are talking about what is appropriate in a professional setting and what is signalled to Canadian soccer observers, female or not.
  10. Firstly, I should say that I am not for censorship. No organization or agency should take away their platform. I agree that people should vote with their thumbs in this case. On inclusivity, whoever espouses or supports the notion that it’s ok for a media member (‘new’ or traditional) to comment on the attractiveness of a female host is sending a strong message to women that they are not welcome in our community, not on their merits.
  11. In the latest episode of the AFTN radio show/podcast (episode 365), host Michael McColl said his favourite part of the OneSoccer broadcast of the final (leg 2) was Andi Petrillo’s leather pants. Michael has said many similar things over the years but this was the one for me that will end my listenership and support of the podcast. The broader thing I think needs discussion here is holding our new media accountable to inclusivity. It’s an exciting time that a few friends can put together a pod without needing investment from above but that means standards being forced from the listeners below. If we want to grow the game in this country, the above kind of speak needs to be swept aside so that all are welcome.
  12. WFC2 played a few matches at Mcleod a few years back. I definitely think it’s possible but something near the Skytrain would make a HUGE difference IMO.
  13. Are we talking about Balsile here maybe?
