Fair enough!Two demoted Div 1 teams + Lobbans promoted from D3 are missing from the groupings, but all those teams are registered.
That is incredibly stupid, even for the VMSL. Players that no longer play for your team being asked to play in the cup?My understanding is 2020 cups will be played with 2019/2020 season rosters. If guys have moved on from last season and aren't willing/able to come play the cup games for you, then it's tough titties.
Cue the team's begging for "replacement players"
Part of what makes this really stupid is the stakes - especially in Div 2. Like what would you win? If you make the final of the Div 2 Cup, you earn a spot in provincials.That is incredibly stupid, even for the VMSL. Players that no longer play for your team being asked to play in the cup?
No throw-ins - trueAnyway, if this "cohorting" is done to find a way for amateurs to play somehow then fine. But, I heard from couple of sources that some soccer rules will be changed too so apparently there will be no throw ins (they will be replaced by kick ins) and no headers!? Can anyone confirm if that indeed is the case?
Actually the rules were designed by somebody at BC Soccer in consultation with ViaSport. ViaSport were the ones who approved them, but not the creators.If it is then definitely somebody at that organization Via Sport had too much time on their hands and came up with those rule changes.
How hard would be to have some type of sanitizer at the field so players have to wipe their hands, then eventually wipe the ball every 15 minutes or so, etc. instead of changing the rules so there are no throw ins or headers. Hopefully those soccer rules changes are just a rumour.
Thanks for the predictions, it's always nice to read them. Not really close for this one though!Meraloma A vs France FC
- Over 3 years, France FC hasn't gotten promoted to Div 2, and hasn't faired well against Div 2 opposition. Meraloma was a power house last year, and may be again. Wouldn't surprise me to see FFC 'au fond de' Group E
