Coach Bob you have done a great job trying to make this happen. No disrespect for what you have tried to do, other people need to step up and help. Money needs to come in people need to pool resources, get their contacts on the phone, get off their wallets, call sponsors, swallow their pride and help this dude out. This is terrible!!!!
This is truely dissapointing. Looking in from the outside I would say another typical example of why we continue to loose Canadian talent to the States. There are several things on my mind so Im going to say them . If we are going to build Canadian Ball then these things need to be resolved.
These events NEED to happen!!!
Toronto can not have a tournament for Jr Championship because gym cost? WOW isnt that crazy considering all of the college's and Universities in and around Toronto? Not one of them can step up and donate the time in their gym. What a crazy thought? Damn you might even be able to recruit? But no its gonna be money that interferes? Ive seen the Ryerson coach around, he walks around big chested, he cant give up some gym time? He might be able to use it to sell his school!!!
Corporations in the city need to start to back Canadian basketball. These are the best grade 10 teams the province has to offer and it cant come together cause no one wants to sponsor it?
Why can ESPN televise high school games in the states? TSN/Sportsnet/rogers, Raptors someone cant step up to say lets make this happen? Oh ya no one cares for Canadian ballers, that why they continue to leave! Wake up people we just cant get it together. Its a disgrace, 2 McDonalds All Americans and we all proud, but damn they had to go down there to do it! Another slap, they obviously no how to get it done down there, I see sponsors in every gym I go to in the States. I no for a fact tournaments in the states assist financially for teams to attend tournaments if your good. Here we pay and no one ever steps up and says lets get this started.
The Pickering coach had a great Haiti event but how well was that supported? We need packed gyms and sell outs. We need to promote our players, we need to have local media get excitted about what is happening in Toronto Basketball.
Its a disgrace, watch out for a mass exit of Jr Ballers next year, trust me its a slap in the face again. This time its gonna be much worse. Look at the talent at the Jr age and look at the talent at the younger ages in GTA, those guys down in the States have made a name, put Toronto on the map and now all the preps gonna be up here, batten down the hatchetts, get the I 20s ready cuz Canadas taking over.............in the USA, how sad.
Technical foul,, x2 and Im outta the game!!
