i think that was a huge mistake, fredericton is way more centralized, now with it in saint john it will severly cut attendance, and making the teams from the south have a even larger home court advantage.
Also i speak for a lot of players when i say players dream of going to the sitken centre... not harbour station,

My guess is that next year they will dream of going to Harbour Station

I'm definetly ready for a change, not so ready to go to St John since I live in Fredericton, however, next year will be a big year of change.

Being in Saint John will not cut attendance....not having former A and AA schools in it will kill attendance. If schools like McAdam, Grand Manan, Campobello, Woodstock, Carelton North or Hartland don't get in, with the possible exception of Devon Park and a few others, it will crash and burn. If anyone saw the AAA girls final this year, they know what I am talking about. If it ever has to rely on the urban high schools i.e. real AAA schools, they will be soon have to pay somebody to take it.

Saint John will be a great venue. I have been attending for the past 24 years and I do belive it is time for a change. I was dissapointed in some of the problems (security) that happened at the AUC this year and hope that the SJ crowd will be mindful as it pertains to unacceptable behaviour near the floor. Look forward to attending next year.

I think this was the right decision. Now we can see what a new city can do to breath some life into the tournmament AND FHS will get a chance to use the same locker rooms as everyone else! Now all we need is a the Friday night 'A' championship games back to help Saint John make the tournament in Harbour Station a success.

Anyone read the article in the daily gleaner today? Phil Wright is one classy guy...even going as far as to acuse the nbiaa of taking bribes from the Saint John bid people!!! He said this years tournament was the best ever. I guess he couldn't hear all of his supporters from across the floor.

The Bruins don't have to worry about the 5 hour drive next year, they won't be there. JMA will represent that area in 2011.

Dr. Phil, Nice comments in the Gleaner. It should never again be awarded to any committee that you are on. How can one person be so arrogant? I was neutral before, now I hope it never goes back to Fredericton.

geez scorkeep...throwing the gauntlet down early...heheheh....bulletin board material for the Northern teams for sure...gutsy move ;-)

As for the travel , I think teams ( and their loyal fans) will travel whereever they have to , to play for a provincial title.....the F'ton committe did a great job with the AC event but I am sure the SJ committee will do equally as well or better....and sometimes change is good..the event won't become stagnent...I'm sure Moncton will get in on next time around...maybe even Bathurst....

I'm wondering if those loyal FHS fans will pile into their cars and take their exhibition of rudeness , ignorance and arrogance on the road...I wonder if they will be talking and acting as tough when they can't run out in the parking lot and hide in Mommy's mini van...

We'll see !! But the way it is looking they may not have a team there to cheer for for a couple of years anyway...but hey...who knows??

It wouldn't matter if is was a 8 hour drive, Travel for them is part of the routine. Its going to be a long weekend for teams that have to travel to the north to face DRHS & SSHS. Twisted Evil

Cmon there is nothing wrong with moving the venue the Final 4 is in a different place every year as is the Super Bowl.
Lets face it Fredericton boys or girls are almost always there this is why they try so hard to keep it in Freddy.

The fact is St John took the bid and they most likely will not have a team in there. I love it.

Take the last 2 years for example they hold a banquet for the players in the Sub ballroom with the music from the student bar bellowing through the walls, then on your way in and out for the banquet there is drunk university students everywheres. There must be another location. Next thing Dr Phil demands that Woodstocks mascot not be allowed on the floor?? This wish is granted of course since he is the head of the organizing group.


I am sorry to those in Freddy who have worked hard at running an honest event however there is too much home cooking going on at the top now.

Dr Phil will have to take the Gary Young trained Black Kats to Harbour Station next year. Take the time to organize fan buses or else you will have no fans there at all.

Go Lions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

lol.....considering you have no idea who will even be on the team next year, that's a pretty impressive prediction.

I don't think the long drive from up north down to harbour station should really be an issue. It should be something to look forward to based on what happened this year, when fredericton fans pretty much thought they owned the place. Although I do agree with "looking forward to the AC, not Harbour Station." New is good, eh?
