All Sports But Hockey / Re: The Official TFC/Soccer thread
« on: June 05, 2018, 02:39:40 PM »
Well,  it's been awhile since that heartbreaking loss in the CONCACAF Champions League Cup Final that TFC has been discussed or written about

As it stands, Toronto FC are in second spot in the East but fifteen points back of first place Columbus Crew. TFC played this same Crew team to a 3-3 tie yesterday at BMO Field here in Toronto.  Even though Toronto took a 3-0 lead at one point, they couldn't hang on to victory as Columbus scored three back to tie the game up (the tying goal on a penalty kick).

2nd in the East??? What have you been smoking. TFC is 10th in the East and Atlanta, not Columbus, are in first. TFC is 18 points behind Atlanta but just 8 out of the playoffs.

With Dubas moving up to be Leafs GM, who takes his role now as Marlies GM?

Typically the assistant GM of the NHL parent holds the title of GM on the farm. Given the current front office that would be Brandon Pridham or Lawrence Gilman. My thought would probably be Pridham as Gilman would like be the salary cap guy.

They have announced their name, logo, and colours. The team will be known as the Newfoundland Growlers.

Schedule is out as well, very heavy on Brampton and the New England teams.

AHL regular season ended last night. Marlies finish 2nd in the North Division and will face the Albany Devils in the 1st round.

Ok Blue Jays Talk / Re: Changes to the Game May Be in the Offing

Couple changes that have been tested in the AZ Fall league include giving an intentional walk by flashing a signal rather than the 4 pitches and a limit of 3 coaching visits per game (including pitcher-catcher conferences), not including pitching changes.

Penny Oleksiak will carry the flag at tonight's Closing Ceremony. Canada finishes with 22 medals, good for 10th when ranked by total medals won (20th when ranked by Gold which is how the IOC ranks countries).

It's likely someone from this year's draft. If I remember correctly, players can't be traded within the 1st year of them being signed.

Pretty good start in the team sports. Women's soccer and rugby 7s are both 2-0. Women's basketball won their opener today as well.

So the IOC has backed off on tossing Russia out of the games completely. They have put it on the individual sports federations to decide.

Would love to see Russia tossed from the Olympics for this. Can't wait to see the IOC lose their balls and back down on sanctions.

General NHL News & Views / Re: AHL to impose new Fighting Rules

Looks pretty similar to the rules in the OHL. They've had it for a couple years and it hasn't killed all fights.

The intention of moving to Laval for 17-18 was made clear when they brought the team to St. John's. I just wonder how much the attendance suffers with it being made official.

Make that a Wimbledon singles final. Daniel Nestor has won 2 men's doubles and 1 mixed doubles titles at the All England Club in 4 tries. Vasek Pospisil has also won a doubles title.

Either way a nice run for Milos. Would like to see that become a run in Rio.
