Never heard of this Nelson school before, but here's what I've learned about them in the past 24 hours.

1. They play in the weakest Tier 2 league in Ontario

2. Every single time they play a team that isn't in their weak league they get DESTROYED!

3. Their uniforms are horrible.  They are basically the anti-swag

4. Nelson and their entire region are notorious for talking a big game, then falling flat on their face.

5. Their summer club team played tier 3 for years and bragged about how they were better than the tier 1 teams in the OVFL.  As soon as they joined the Tier 1 league they folded two years in a row because they couldn't handle the physical style of play. Haha

6. They are big fish in a VERY small pond - The best team in their very weak tier 2 league.

7. They've never been more scared of an opponent as they are of St. Ignatius.

Joseph isnt making it in the CFL so Humes will not be starting.

What's to stop Western from using them both on the field, like they used AT and Joseph last year?

I feel like the St. Ignatius coach is the one doing this to try to goad a real team into playing them because he dont get any calls from top teams because theyre either playing in the states or against eachother not a no name team from butt ***** nowhere

All I see from all this is
1 The Thunder Bay teams such as Ignatius are cheaters using illegal kids from other schools. You can be sure the other regions will be checking the Ignatius or whom ever shows up next year for illegals.
2 Your great Ignatius team won a last minute boring game and so was gifted a #35 final ranking which even for them seems a little high.
3 Thunder Bay kids are afraid of the competition from the south to make provincial teams so they go with their tail between their legs begging the next province Manitoba to let them try out there.
4 Thunder Bay had a chance to join Ontario summer ball a few years ago but chickened out there as well and run some watered down summer house league stuff.
5 This great high school league you brag about never has anyone go to university to play ball. What happens to all these great tough players you supposedly have? Not in university in Ontario. Maybe Manitoba? Nope. No one from Thunder Bay on Manitoba's roster or on their commits for 2019.
6 Some lame adult (or adults) from Thunder Bay have nothing better to do till moose season is back so spends the time trolling the high school football web sites and grinding his axe

OUA is the only conference with a max athletic scholarship offer of $4500. All other conferences can offer up to FULL Tuition and Fees! OUA is NOT the centre of the universe and Football does not live and breathe well in Ontario. As a matter of fact, grassroots football in Ontario is dying for many reasons.

I'd also like to mention that Quebec Universities give students (not specifically student athletes) perks for being a resident of Quebec and attending university or college there so for many, there's no point in attempting to leave the province, financially not worth it. Furthermore, the cost of tuition for a Quebec student is on avg. $2000 vs $8000 in the OUA or Atlantic.

People are hating how well run the Quebec conference is run but you're not looking at how well the grassroots football in Quebec is. That's the difference!

Women's hockey tried a pilot project to offer their athletes FULL RIDE (tuition, food and board, books, etc.) but women's hockey doesn't pay the bills so they've canceled it from my knowledge. Men's hockey pretty much receives FULL RIDE as they get money from their school and their junior program that they've come from.

Lastly, in the OUA, it's the toughest to receive scholarship money because you have to enter an OUA program with an 80% avg. and then maintain a 70% avg. to continue receiving funds. To me, that's not an athletic scholarship, that's a trap for a mouse to eat fake cheese. My real question for OUA schools is, "How many of your athletes or what percentage of your athletes, actually receive their scholarship funds every year?" I think a policy in the OUA and USports should be that whatever is offered to you upon signing your LOI, should be the amount you receive right away, marks or not. The second year should be this implementation process of 65% avg. or 70% BS if they want it. The adjustment for student athletes plus cracking the roster in their first year is some pressure that is harder for marginalized student athletes than those who are privileged.

Everybody grumbles about something. How is there corruption. You make a statement you should have the facts to back it up.

I don't know anything about OFA "corruption", but I do know that the overwhelming majority of OFA stakeholders are very dissatisfied with the work being done (or lack of work being done) at the OFA.

There's an entire thread on this forum asking what the OFA does....and NOBODY KNOWS!  All we can figure out is that they offer overpriced insurance.  The leagues can get better insurance on their own at a lower rate!

What has the OFA done to help grow football at a grassroots level?

The only alleged accusations  of corruption that I've heard about the OFA are centred around nepotism.  I don't know anything about this, but apparently much of the staff there is related.

Regardless, the OFA is basically finished.  Now that the OPFL and the OFC have dropped the OFA they will serve no real purpose.




OPFL reconsidered after some member clubs threatened to leave and join up with this new eastern Ontario/Quebec summer league coming in 2020.



I doubt Glen Mills would beg the OFA to let his league back in after they terminated his contract as head coach of Team Ontario. 



Glenn Mills is one of the candidates running for OFA President. He knows his league is toast and is looking for something new


OR......the OFA knows they are toast, and the only way to keep the ship afloat is to bring in the KING of Ontario Football aboard - GLEN MILLS!

Glen Mills is probably the only man that can save the OFA right now.

Easy Ric Flair!! Nobody gives a shit about you. And NOBODY is going to waste their time and resources to drive up there and play a 2nd rate team. The real top teams go to the States - and get PAID to do so. Why would they waste their time with you?

Nobody has ever heard of Nelson.  The only reason you hate us, is because you ain't us!  #OFSAAchampions
