    Does anyone know when the federal cabinet meets? I imagine this is a decision that requires cabinet approval. The Ontario provincial one meets Wednesdays.

    PRO should be releasing their referee assignments shortly. I think we'll have an announcement one way or the other imminently. Between that, Orlando travel, and broadcast I would be shocked if we still have radio silence past 5pm today.

    beer was also delivered to BMO today apparently too.

    just means that they are preparing like they would were they to play at bmo on sat, which you would do while waiting for a final response from feds.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The Canadian government have no back bone, spineless to the core.

    The Blue Jays proposal is for a July 30th start. The overall border as of now is closed until July 21st. In the coming days I am sure will we hear about the unilateral agreement the US and Canada has. In my mind August 1 has always been the most likely date for things to kickoff at BMO.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    MLSE proposing a date for July 17th given the province ok'd even the option is all fine and dandy.

    The feds & the province & the city have to agree upon the details.


    Now if anybody thinks a government at ANY level is going to OK sports teams (baring a playoff situation) coming into the country for a league game (especially when MLSE has said they have a backup plan) BEFORE they let John & Jackie go across the border to see their grandkids....it ain't gonna happen.

    The chance of the feds OKing this for the 17th was always slim & always politically dangerous if they did.

    A week tonight though? Very doable IF the feds make the announcement by Monday afternoon.

    I don't get why Manning is going down the “public pressure” route on this. It just creates confusion in the fan base if it doesn’t happen. You don’t see the Jays or anyone else putting gun to the head of officials like this (we were in Stage 2 and less than two weeks away from July 17 when Manning did this, and he isn’t letting up with just 3 days to go)

    I wonder what the purpose and who the audience for this gambit really is…

    There are behemoths in this fight (one that catches my eye is Air Canada, the former employer of Manning's boss) that have been ignored for months …

    Whatever about all the politics, this is quite disappointing.

    The next opportunity is the July 21st border agreement renewal. Likely we'll get some indication where it's going by the end of this week. Trudeau has already given a bit of an indication by saying the border won't be open to tourism - so we won't be going back to everything normal July 21st. But if we can get some easing on work travel that might be enough of an opening. The pressure is pretty high for further easing than what we got July 5. Still reason for optimism.

    I still think there's a possibility they might let them play at BMO on Saturday without fans. With all of the exemptions they gave for hockey they broke the seal a long time ago. I mean what's more dangerous to the people of Ontario? Letting about 30 or 40 people into the country that are fully vaccinated and tested regularly? ... OR ... sending 30 or 40 TFC players and support staff into the states (where Orlando are coming from) to play a game and then THEY come back across the border without having to quarantine?? What's the difference? Technically it would be more dangerous to send TFC to the states and then come back because they're staying here. Orlando would be in and out. Politics and science have nothing to do with each other. Scientifically it's fine for Orlando to play here but politically I'll make Trudeau a deal. If he doesn't let TFC play at home on Saturday he will definitely NOT get my vote in the next election for being such a hypocrite

    My guess is that MLS seeked exemptions for the three teams listed first and then will have their full plan for August later.

    Good work, MLSE/MLS/even you fuckers with the weird asshole logo.

    Keep in mind that there will also be a game on July 21st!

    Wonder why 7,000 - once the opposition are here they're allowed host upto 15. Likely an issue with getting the necessary staff?

    Soft launch? Also, there are a lot of freebies on Saturday - 8K more of free hot dogs & pizza might be a thing?

    Well now, looks like you got your request fulfilled. Check that box on the next election ballot.

    I just spoke to a ticket rep and regarding the email that is to go out shortly, it looks like it will be a lottery system if you choose that you want to go to Saturday's game. If you get your seat picked in the lottery, you will be informed tomorrow if you are one of the lucky 7K.
