  1. The report was extremely thorough and at times pretty disturbing. I found it interesting that Mario and Colin left early as they didn't like the direction it was going in. I wonder if they have any regrets? Will Billings still need to go through a CSA hearing?

  3. Great Analysis Norma Rae. I couldn't agree more. I found some parts of the decision very interesting. 1. The committee's analysis of the meeting used to suspend Billings 2. The committee's analysis of the Gowlings legal opinion that was often used to justify the suspensino
  4. Great News. Its about time. It was interesting to read the decision. I was happy to note that the committee did not dismiss the charges against Billings without a real investigation. Although the charges were dropped the committee did note that Billings at times could be very difficult to work with.
  5. looks like as of March 10th no decision had been made on Billings http://ivrnethosting.com/absoccer/clientuploads/Minutes%20of%20Meetings/2012%20Meetings/2012%20-%2003%20-%2010%20ASA%20BOD%20Minutes%20(Approved).pdf
  6. Has Chris Billings been reinstated? I heard he had his hearing last month? Anyone know the outcome?
  7. I think it would be very interesting if Dan Barnes or Ben Knight did a follow up article on ASA. It would be great to have an update on the financial impact of the dispute, any changes the new board has implemented, what has been done (if anything) to prevent similar disputes in the future, what has been done to improve the technical side of soccer in Alberta. Other things I would be interested to learn 1. Status of Chris Billings in all of this 2. Status of former Executive Director 3. does either side of the dispute have any regrets 4. What is the working relationship betwe
  8. It will be interesting to see what happens at the AGM in January. Thanks for the update.
  9. How are things within the ASA now? I don't hear very much anymore about the current situation. Has there been an improvement? What is the general feeling as the next AGM approaches? Is (or has) Billing going to be reinstated?
  10. Is that for the legal opinion that started the whole thing? The Gowlings opinion that Mario and Colin used as justification for all their other actions? Has anyone seen that legal opinion yet? I had almost started to believe it was imaginary.
  11. I have really appreciated this boards willingness to get their minutes up on the website in a prompt fashion (and with no password). It is great to see some openness and accountability. I would still love to see the minutes from all the 2010 meetings (if any were held), but I doubt that is going to happen.
  12. Traficante is out. No more soccer funded trips for Mikey

  14. Interesting Article about CSA AGM that is scheduled for this weekend. I've got my fingers crossed that Traficante is not re-elected. Good Luck Mr. Jacobsen. It will be interesting to see what kind of reception you are given. http://www.canadiansoccernews.com/content.php?1659-CSA-AGM-Seven-things-to-watch-for
  15. Interesting read. Thanks for posting it.
