    Yes, but for their graduates.

    Doesn't seem like this is something I'd need to explain to you.

    I thought it was FVSL, VISL, and PCSL?

    @mtkb - that being said, exactly like that....why not just have the same member clubs establish those teams? I suppose the financial burden / commitment is the big sticking point, but yes, exactly like that.

    C'mon now @Dude, everyone knows PCSL is in a league of their own. They are a semi-pro tier 3 league after all.

    I stand corrected. "Semi-pro tier 3 league"

    "Big 3"

    I'm seeing a pattern.

    Because with the kids' teams, they're making money from vicarious parents. What's the incentive for them to field adult teams?

    Ontario also still has the CSL hanging in there, match-fixing allegations and all...

    A sale deal like the Ontario situation, leading to (presumably) some funding.

    That’s all I can think of, besides altruistic reasons such as continuing to build the game locally. Charity is nice and feel good, but fcuk me it takes a certain type to see it through long term. The Marty Fodens are few and far in between.

    RIP to Marty, while we're at that...

    I was being sarcastic, because of course the devil is in the details with the BCSPL, and extending it to the adult world would add another layer of complexity to the mix...

    You're a lawyer. That means you're not allowed to be sarcastic...

    Building the game locally is going to need a lot more than altruism. I'd suggest that masochism is more likely the case. That and a sea-change in perspective from our local leagues.

    Bingo, Trece, and I don't see that happening. Ultimately I see some sort of a Tier III league popping up, and with the attraction of pro / rel system w/ CPL, it attracting over the typical current "Premier" level player, and with it, the ambitious clubs. The three leagues will be siphoned of their best talent, and effectively, their "Premier" divisions will be so watered down to the point that they will now become feeders to this new Tier II league.

    Good signing, especially if he has more than one foot.
