    Terry_Canuck reacted to Initial B in CPL General   
    3 out of 8 teams (37.5%) of the league makes the playoffs. I'd be fine keeping it at that number of teams until the league gets to 12 teams, then I'd add a fourth team to the playoffs to keep the ratio at 33.3%. I think it's a fine balance between having too many playoff teams that the regular season becomes meaningless, and too few playoff teams where the season soon becomes meaningless for most of the clubs.

    I also think the league did the right thing in having the first place team gain a bye to the final.  A single table is OK as well...I never really warmed up to the split season.  
    As it is only 8 teams, I think 4 in the playoffs sort of devalues it a bit in that you may have two really good teams, a decent third-place team, and a poor fourth team.  You may have a situation where the fourth place team has more losses than wins, so I'm OK with this format on the whole.

    I'm happy the league has decided to play most of its games on the weekend.
    By my calculations, just 16 of the 112 games are on weekdays and 4 of those are on Canada Day, so the league got it right.  The Wanderers have just two home games during the work week (two on holidays) which will be convenient for the casuals and may boost the walk-up crowd even more.

    Updated with this weeks CONCACAF League championship result. Saprissa and Motagua drew in the second leg, so Saprissa are the champs. The point that Motagua got took HON1 passed PAN2.
    Like I alluded to earlier, I'm not sure if I'll update the table anymore. If people have ideas for something that would be useful with the new direction CONCACAF is taking the rankings, by all means make a suggestion. Otherwise I might just rethink it once the CCL starts up to see if I come up with anything that seems useful/fun/not too much of a pain in the neck.

    The stadium is a contentious issue in Halifax at the moment.  I believe Haligonians are about 60/40 against a stadium at the moment, but the Mayor is in favour of it and has been relatively quiet on the issue for the last few weeks.
    I'll be controversial and say that the issue should be put to a plebiscite in this fall's municipal election as opposed to the council itself, but I don't see that happening.  A defeat on any sort of stadium plan would be a kick in the teeth to the mayor's 'legacy'.
    I can only assume a stadium would be for football and soccer (there won't be 2 new stadiums with public money) but the new site has not been put forward, so we'll have to see.  Truthfully, I hope the Wanderers stay where they are as there is something special about the place and I truly believe it provides the club with a competitive advantage.  In the end, I do think a capacity of 10,000 max is sufficient.
    Cheers,
    Terry

    Question for those of you in Halifax.
    Assuming the team's success within the city continues, how many years do you think it'll take their ownership to build a more permanent stadium?

    I'm happy we've re-signed Garcia and Oxner, two of our better performers.  Oxner was a pleasant surprise and he is, for me, our number one keeper.
    Not surprised about Langwa or Skublak, especially the former after his shouting match with Hart.  Wished Skublak could have come back as I would have liked to seen him get an extended run, but maybe Hart saw enough to justify his decision.
    SImmons and Ilda I don't really understand, but I wouldn't be shocked if one (or both) are back in the near future.
