Facey wins easy. Sal has the worst offense in the league. We crushed them in 2014 when they had it in the bag and we have won every game since. 50-0 they wont score on us

Troll can guarantee nobody at Facey believes this and they take the game really seriously.

I wouldn't say St Francis is unbeatable. but they are the favorite.
Maybe HWW or ND can get an upset. Only time will tell.

Any chance of Buchan being back? Maybe this week? He is the QB of the future at Guelph and we need him now. He needs to continue his development cause Roberts will be going into his last year next year.

The real issue here is not whether Football Canada has come up with a mandate or not to say a player cannot play in two simultaneous seasons. The document clearly states this and its plans for rolling them out.
However, the document also covers the implementation phase.
This is where the issue lies.

The OPFL EXPLICITLY stated within their rules and on their website the mandate from Football Canada.
The OPFL followed through with the implementation phase of the mandate.
There is precedent for proper implementation.

Conversely, It is not stated anywhere within the OFL rules that they were adopting and enforcing the mandate.
Right or wrong, whether or not they were supposed to or not, it does not matter.
The fact is they DIDN'T.
Any informed parent, when doing their due diligence would leverage the resources available to them (rules and by-laws) and clearly see (or not see in this case) that there was not a rule in place preventing their child from participating.

As to whether the mandate from the Football Canada document should supersede any league rules, there is precedent for that as well. We can see that exceptions can and have been made to Football Canada rules.

I cannot say if or not it was discussed at any OFL meetings, but bottom line - no rule was communicated in a reasonable manner to any parents. Any discussion I have ever seen was reference to a 72hr rule, but that is not the Football Canada mandate.
We are more than halfway into a season, it is unfair to all those affected to say they can't play now.
Take the lesson learned and properly implement the Football Canada mandates next season.

Not adding much to this thread other than Ben Osborne is a damn fine football player. He was so much fun to coach at the Bulldogs during my brief stint down south.

MUST AGREE WITH YOU. This team could easily go 4-4. They do lack talent but they are certainly a well coached group that has shown improvement and that is in part to good coaches. Also agree with you that they are the positive face of the hfa. The hfa does have some problems and issues but it also does have some really good people as well.

I'm luvin' the feisty words coming from [overconfident?] Hawks fans!  To clarify a misconception:  the Yates crowd, while a poor turnout overall, was definitely more Mustangs fans...you just didn't see them if you watched on tv because they were in the main grandstand...still sad that the "student stands" weren't full and yes, there were more Laurier fans there.

Obvious troll there but can't resist.

Saw the Warrior film. Was 19-15 till less than a minute left in the first and one of those TD's was another patented lobbed up deep interception field throw that somehow #5 comes down with for a score. Only so many horseshoes... too many bad memories from Yates to let this one slip. BTW, You think we care how many fans show?
