Ya I heard Baldisimo left Coastal for Columbus did you have any influence in that one?The ND team in Div1 would get smoked in premier. The quality difference from premier to Div1 in the valley is massive. It would water down the division so much and ruin that teams “fun”. The top players on the ND squad are going masters from what I hear.
Yes they should be forced. But it honestly would just make valley premier worse overall. There is already a massive gap between the top 4-5 and bottom 3 teams.
If the division keeps getting weaker, more top players will jump to vmsl. Every year the league loses its top players to VMSL.
Baldisimo the latest.
Gindo, Daniel Davidson to name a few over the last two years.
Let alone the internal chippings off other valley teams. The top players from Westcoast went to Pomo and they folded. Now it’s Chilliwack.
Hearing “Van United” Temple Van from last fall has separated from temple entirely. Bringing some scraps from Guildford FCs side from VMSL Premier. CCB is going to be a very young but will have limited experience.Ya I heard Baldisimo left Coastal for Columbus did you have any influence in that one?
As for the non promotion, I disagree. You are telling me that North Delta could not compete with Van United (didn't win a game last year), SAFC who were in Div. 1, Chilliwack (who may now have folded) and Burnaby (who took relegation)? Plus I can't imagine this new CCB team being an all-star group. If they were all in the top flight together they would be competitive with each other. Mix in somebody getting points somewhere off the other "top" teams and now you have an interesting table and maybe a decent fight for that final Provincial spot.
Plus, lets be honest, Langley took a step back last year while Abbotsford exceeded expectations. It sounds like Coastal might be set up for a step backwards this year. Who knows, perhaps if ND went up they could lure over some Coastal players from the old North Delta days and make things even more interesting.
I agree, but as you know a billion ways around this loophole, such as buying a spot, or slotting in squad B for squad A. What's the difference? When you are the execs and teams are flat out refusing promotion, you are now tasked to finding squads that actually want to move into Premier, and hopefully have assembled a squad that can hang in.By what uR saying cfb should start in div 4 then? Why do they get a pass if we all follow rules and think we should follow rules so much. Earn your right no?
North Delta seems like a bunch a children, FVSL Division 1 is directly below the FVSL premier division (obviously). Stays down because “we don’t have the players for premier”. However they have the players to finish first in Division 1. It’s mind boggling how you wouldn’t go up and show your worth.The fact that a team can win their division two years in a row and refuse promotion both times is crap. You could argue one time that you win the league and your going to lose players so you shouldn't go up, but fool me once... They are clearly the top team in Div 1 and should thus be able to compete with the bottom teams of Premier.
