Just a note: I’m taking a week off from PTS reviews because I’ve had a really busy week and especially the last few days, and I need a break.

Sid Seixiero at his Twitter account writes of Canada’s soccer coach, whom Tim & Sid have interviewed recently without asking tough questions: “Stephen Hart couldn’t motivate a drowning man to swim”

I guess Sid assumes Hart will be out as Canada’s coach and therefore won’t have to interview him again. This reminds me a bit of McCown who’s nice to guests then tough on them when they’re no longer on line. Maybe it just comes with the business – they have to interview them and express opinions to do their jobs – and these guests probably understand it…but… it just seems so sneaky at times.

to be fair, Hart is a horrible interview and says basically nothing in response to any question.

you will be missed, but you deserve the break. i’ll restate my suggestion that you switch to a week in review or highlights and lowlights format.

It’s the Deadspin story about Bain Capital approaching the NHL about buying the entire league.

After the 8-1 debacle in Honduras, in only the biggest soccer game for the men’s national team in I don’t know how many years, I don’t think I am going out on a limb to say that Stephen Hart will not be around much longer. If he had any self-respect, he would have already tendered his resignation already.

Sid just said what most of us who follow the team feel, although I am certainly not a soccer buff, it is obvious that the pathetic lack of finish by the Canadian soccer team made them a complete joke. I have to think that a decent coach would come up with some strategies to put the odd ball behind the other team’s keeper, but this was never done, and in the end, it caught up with them.

If I were to assign blame, the complete running of the men’s program has been a joke for many years, and the players have not been developed and supported well, so maybe a lot of this has to do with that as well, and until that is rectified, we will continue to see Canada falling on its collective face time and time again.

congrats to Bob for an excellent interview with ex-NHLPA boss Paul Kelly. Kelly said a lot and Bob followed up with some great questions.

One thing I wish he would have pursued was Kelly’s suggestion that the PA should be willing to accept something close to 50/50 because that’s what other leagues (NFL and NBA) have done. One of Fehr’s big points is that you can’t compare the NHL to either of those leagues for a bunch of reasons. I would have enjoyed hearing Kelly talk about why he disagrees with Fehr about this.

Anyway, highly recommended listening. PTS at its best.

I would think being the coach of Canada’s soccer team would
be roughly comparable to being the coach of South Africa’s (ice) hockey team. Maybe that’s a
bit of an exaggeration, although I see South Africa’s IIHF world ranking is higher than Canada’a FIFA ranking. There is only three professional soccer teams in all
of Canada (perhaps three and a half if you count Edmonton) and most of their
players are not Canadian. The CSA may claim a relatively large number of
participants, but that’s deceptive since it probably involves mostly children
and volunteers who see it as a recreational activity and aren’t interested in
treating it the way far too many “hockey parents” do with their kids.
It’s probably not much different for any other team sport in Canada
except hockey.
And BTW, I’ve read through a couple of articles about Hamilton’s new stadium, and when they list who is paying for it, it’s only the different levels of government, and no mention of the TiCats paying for any of it. McCown apparently forgot to call them free-loaders like he does every other time government pays for a pro sports team’s new stadium.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
