Maybe it's because I have reported the Broncos thoughts on it and it's being perceived these are my beliefs.
I fully support this event and think there may not be a bigger event (at least not on a world stage) ever hosted out of our city.
I plan to help out as much as I can through promotion and on the media side of things. I would love to volunteer to coordinate the media relations side of things pending my regular job duties with the radio station and hockey club.
I do however agree the timing is just off. A month, two weeks... a week ahead of the Mar 20-29 time frame and there wouldn't be any problems. Something may be able to be worked out but both schedules are pretty much set at this point.
It's almost a perfect scenario.... almost.
But when the main tenant of the I-plex and the Western Hockey League are upset, then that's a story. Go check the Leaderpost's coverage of the Pats battles with Ipsco Place.
It's what people are talking about....therefore so am I.
City Recreation and Parks Manager Dean Robson spoke with me today and about the Championships and the concerns the Broncos are having.
I'll post some of the highlights tomorrow.
