  1. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Sure thing, but I also want a nice FIFA blazer and of course I’d like my share of the bribe money, next time a football hotbed like Qatar wants to host.

    Of course everyone here is up in arms. What do the top referees in the world, backed up by VAR, know? CDCers watching from the couch, assisted by slow- mo replay, are way better qualified for the job. I’m not sure why anybody hasn’t thought of this before.
  3. BC Lions

    Nice comeback. Great to have Travis back at the helm
  4. BC Lions

    Andrew Harris sure enjoys playing against the Lions. Just one of many great players that Wally let slip through his fingers. Who needs a Canadian running back anyway?
  5. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Priceless. I’d say tirty Hail Marys, tirty our fathers and the act of contrition to help this along.
  6. The problem with our outlook on our team

    So since you’re not a Canuck fan, who is this “we” that you refer to? The Laffs? They need a goalie and some defenseman.

    Opportunistic Belgiums got the better of Brazil, who squandered many chances. The selecao should have potted three or four in that game. Can’t wait for France -Belgium game. It should be a cracker. Brazil fans including me be like

    Just watching the games now. Gotta say that this bug eating guy saved France’s bacon against Uruguay.
  10. BC Lions

    It’s time for the end of Wally ball. A major shakeup is needed as the team is sucking mightily. I’ve often wondered how the Lions can ignore the importance of building a strong offensive line. Then they let guys like Mike Reilly walk because he couldn’t function at a high level behind a crappy o-line. Jennings on the other hand, it probably wouldn’t matter if he had decent protection. He just seems to be too inconsistent.
  11. The NHL needs to implement a uniform tax policy

    As a CPA who prepares US tax returns for a living, I commend your knowledge of the US tax situation. I have a few clients playing on NHL and AHL teams and many more in management or scouting. The guys who get screwed the worst are the ones that file Canadian tax returns as residents of Canada, while playing on US teams. If those guys establish US residency, particularly in States that have no Income tax, they are much better off. You are correct in pointing out that Canucks, Flames and Oilers pay a lot less tax than guys who play in most other cities in the league. Of the other Canadian cities, Montreal is the worst by far for high tax rates. The US “jock tax” is quite interesting. A couple of years ago one of my clients had to file 13 State tax returns. This year one of my clients from an Alberta team only had to file 3 State tax returns (CA, Penn, and NJ) and three city tax returns ( NY, Pittsburgh and Columbus ) .

    I am pulling for Brazil as well. Willian has really impressed with his dynamic play. He was much better today than Neymar.
  13. [Signing] Maple Leafs sign John Tavares

    Unfortunately what’s good for th Laff’s is also good for the league. I wouldn’t be surprised if JT’s presence in the most important city in the universe doesn’t trigger a revenue spurt causing the salary cap to jump. Problem solved
