Nutrilite Canadian Championship: CSA Made Right Call To Reschedule - Waking The Red

With lightning striking near the stadium, rain coming down in buckets and BMO Field quickly becoming unplayable, it's probably not all that shocking that Wednesday's Nutrilite Canadian Championship was, at least, suspended. Waking the Red, SB Nation's Toronto FC blog, actually believes the Canadian Soccer Association did the only reasonably thing by abandoning the match:

Anyone thinking rationally can agree that calling the game off was the right decision, and rescheduling for July 2nd was probably also a good choice, the clubs involved and the CSA making the best of a tough situation. The decision to completely restart the game is obviously a bit more contentious. As a TFC supporter, I'm not going to pretend I'm not chuckling about Eric Hassli's goal being wiped off or that I wouldn't be bitching if it happened the other way round. It's definitely unlucky, maybe even unfair, I can certainly see where the anger comes from, but the rules (agred to by all sides beforehand) are the rules.
