  1. Hearing rumours it will be at Westhills and season ticket holders may be permitted to attend in limited numbers and under distancing protocols.
  2. Why is that a joke? It is what every other league that has started up has had to do and was a given the first time they mentioned this plan in the first place.
  3. Not surprising that a young, ambitious sports media enterprise in the midst of aggressive expansion should take a hit during a global pandemic that shut down all sports for months. Hopefully they can weather the storm.
  4. Re: UBC Memorial Stadium as CanPL venue Not having tried to get there for a game in years, have the transit options improved enough to make it work? Previous lower level clubs trying to operate out of there found it was difficult to get people out that far for games, and as an away fan we had to take personal vehicles from the ferry terminal.
  5. Notice I pointed out that all games could be played in daylight hours. The low cameras are only really a problem when using the lights at night. A game broadcast live from 8-10 pm in Halifax will be played from 4-6 pm in Victoria. That only becomes a problem for lights at the very end of the season (assuming they go to October).
  6. All this talk of PEI is bizarre. Vancouver Island makes way more sense. no cases in three weeks Victoria alone has three suitable stadiums (Westhills, Centennial and Royal Athletic Park) PFC built the largest indoor training facility in BC and we also have UVic and PISE at Camosun College Pacific time zone means ALL games could be played during the day for live broadcast at reasonable hours in any market hotel infrastructure for teams and officials ready and waiting
  7. (Sorry, time vortex caught me.) Nothing done and the talk of moving is probably designed to push the city and BC Hydro to git 'er done. When they announced the CMNT games at Westhills Mayor Stewie (not to be confused with Stewie Starfish) said we needed to write to BC Hydro and/or government types to apply pressure.
  8. It wasn't the lighting so much as the horrific camera angles at Westhills and with NO work done on the Hydro Pole situation the camera locations are unchanged. Lighting would not be an issue as all games could be played in daylight at this point. Centennial Stadium at UVic and Royal Athletic Park downtown could both be used as well.
  9. Our home opener was supposed to be tomorrow, April 11.
  10. If he's not, it could be too late.
  11. I have no idea what the CanPL or the CSA want, but I want a 16 team first division.
  12. There were sequels?!? Netflix is telling me Ultras drops Friday and The English Game just glitches out before it can even load an info screen.
  13. Yup, that sounds about right. Abbotsford is a long way out. You have to add the 95 minutes ferry and at least another hour on public transit on this side to get to Westhills. We have not heard if free shuttles from downtown Victoria will be offered again this year. If you can get to YVR it is a short hop (5 minutes) on the Canada Line rain and then a 25 minutes express bus ride to the ferry. You might also try to see what it would cost to take Harbour Air if they fly from Abbotsford to Victoria Harbour. Makes the trip probably 30-40 minutes total.
  14. Sorry if I came across as harsh. You are just trying to help out your nephew and my annoyance is at people not paying attention to what I actually wrote, not you. And on another note, not a Boomer.
  15. Actually sometimes a leak is more credible than official statements which are "massaged" or "spun" until they bear little resemblance to the truth. The leak aligns with every other source and unless you are suggesting it was purposeful misdirection - which seems unlikely given the circumstances - it stands as the best information we have. Arguing about it at this point is just silly, and UT is right, it makes you sound racist because it's not in English.
