An Interesting question.

I listened to a debate yesterday that piqued my interest and my curiosity. The participants, Peter Scaad and Marc Weber, were discussing the Philadelphia match and the role that current "master of...

Time to talk about the defense?

Martin Rennie's announcement after training on Monday that Y. P. Lee would likely not be traveling to Washington or Kansas City with his team-mates throws the spotlight on what has clearly emerged...

How good was that?!?

With just days to go until we see our Whitecaps take the field in the second leg of the Canadian Championship, soccer fans were treated to a football delight in the final of the UEFA Champion's...

Youth is full of sport, age's breath is short

I read with interest that the Whitecaps have (finally!) signed nineteen year old Aminu Abdallah after an extended and successful trial period. I saw the youngster in a pre-season friendly in...

A Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Production

I am a Whitecaps FC fan and my focus is bound to be upon the Whitecaps and their performance but before I consider that I am compelled to say that in many, many decades of watching football (I...

Backpedling, a bit

Upon reflection, I have come to realize that my reaction to Saturday's disappointing performance in Frisco was an over-reaction of the type that I find so frustrating in many other observers. I am...

Hail! Hail! The gang's all here.

It was a delight to see the Vancouver Whitecap Reserves in Victoria today for the seventh repetition of this annual friendly which Island football fans have come to anticipate. I was really...

A Season of Growth, An Off-season of Development

Amidst the disappointment at the end of the Whitecap's season I am grateful to Eighty Six Forever for giving me a forum for expressing my own opinion about how the season went and how it ended as...

Nervous Nellie In Victoria

I confess to being a trifle nervous this morning as I await the kick-off for what, in my opinion, is the critical game of the season thus far. Not that it is a "must win". We have all heard this...

Has justice been served?

I have very mixed feelings about the Lucic hit on Miller.  If a goalie comes that far out of the net to play the puck he is acting as a defense man and shouldn't he be as fair game as a defense man...

Volpatti and Oreskevitch on hot seat?

Much of the talk coming out of training camp and three pre-season games thus far has centred on the Canuck's need to add grit to protect an already talented line-up.  Candidates such as Pinizzotto,...

Canuck's fan's lose whiner title to Bruin's faithful

The Canucks have a wonderful chance to win the Stanley Cup provided they stay focused and keep working but widely critized for being whiners and whingers earlier in the playoffs, the Canucks and...

Is anyone else as nervous as I am?

I was disturbed as I watched the Bruins and Lightning contest the Eastern Division Championship.  "Stap me!"' I thought.  "The Canucks will devour either of these teams."  They seemed to lack the...

This comment from Barry Trotz

causes me some concern: "Any team gets in trouble when they change their identity a little bit... When you chase the game or chase a certain aspect of your game, you take your team out of sorts." T...

It's Why They Play The Games

To listen to the outraged shrieks of the "betrayed" fans, one would think that the Canucks should just own the fact that they are cursed and the Blackhawks are in their heads and have their...

Help me out here, please

One of the things I am unclear about in all this palaver is the presentation of Raffe Torres as a villain.  Comments like "with his reputation" or "we all know his history" or referring to him as...

Must Win?

The expression "Must Win" is amongst the most over-used cliches commonly popular with sports fans and the media. It often just means that fans really, really want their team to win or refers to a...

The Sedin Sisters and Cody Hodgson

I was just thinking that Cody Hodgson is one lucky fellow. Here he is called up to play with the Canucks in the post-season by an organization and management that clearly has faith and confidence...

A Question of Confidence

Here's a question for anyone who knows the answer or thinks that they do. Recently, I have heard  AV, Mike Gillis and any number of his teammates attribute Roberto Luongo's stellar play this...

Here we go again. Or do we?

Ironically, we see a second incident similar to the Chara/Pacioretty hit that we have been debating for the past few days.  For what it is worth, I saw the Umberger/Doughty hit quite differently...

Who has their head in the sand?

It can surely have come as no surprise that, once again, the NHL has failed to step up and take the lead in resolving a situation which, it is clear to all right thinking hockey fans, has become an...
