Re: Jays to play in Buffalo

Turns out the Jays will call Sahlen Field, their Triple-A affiliate stadium in Buffalo, home for the shortened game season. They've got a lot of work to do to bring it up to MLB standard and it wont be ready in time for their home opener July 29th. So they will be vagabonds for up to 2 weeks, crashi...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

It's a clever use of the original Metropolitan's "S", to form a serpent. I like how the designer was quoted as saying they wanted to avoid making the logo cartoonish. https://www.tsn.ca/nhl-seattle-announces-kraken-nickname-logo-1.1498846 The jersey colour scheme is a bit reminiscent of the first Ca...

This maybe just a CFLPA negotiating tactic, or the End Is Near.

Re: Eskimos: change your name

I would have laughed at the idea of EDM "Empire", since it's past use seemed to be more of a disparaging term (like the EE=Evil Empire). https://www.esks.com/join-the-empire/ No idea how long that has been up, but it sure looks like they want everyone to embrace the Empire (Evil or otherwise). :rot...

Re: 2019 World Series

There was an announcement overnight that the Jays would be sharing the Pirates stadium in Pittsburgh, but that is premature, according to this: https://twitter.com/Buster_ESPN/status/1286000168123367427 The whole idea of blithely assuming they would be okay to have multiple MLB teams (including them...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

It's ironic that this proposal looks more likely to succeed than the shambolic situation looming in the NFL. (which appears to subscribe to Trump's assertion that "if they are young and healthy, it will be like a day with the sniffles"). There is growing unrest among NFL players at the perceived lac...

2020 MLB 60 game season

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29488579/blue-jays-not-allowed-play-games-canada I'm not surprised Toronto has been disallowed by the Federal Govt (after GTA and Ontario govts allowed them to play home games). Like most news about the 60 game MLB season--what a mess. Their immediate options (hom...

Re: Monday morning rant

Sounds like the NHL has a plan and is moving forward. The question that comes to my mind is " who are they doing it for ? ". Are we in need of hockey to make it through the day ? Bottom line I come up with is they are doing it for themselves. They need it more than the fans in order to pay for the ...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Good article--Barnes must have had info leaked to him by someone on the CFLPA side. (Considering how locked down the league has been with details). I agree--it's more likely they will renegotiate a CBA only for the unique 2020 season (as requested by the CFLPA). The NHL had the huge carrot of Olympi...
