By the way, can you explain why they are in Nanaimo? That bit has been confusing me. I mean, are they still the Victoria Rebels? Like, still our team? Where do the players live?
They are not in Nanaimo. Without board/league approval a group of executive tried to move the team to Nanaimo. They failed, but they did get an expansion franchise and steal half the Victoria players.
So two BCJFL teams on the Island now:
Vancouver Island Raiders (Nanaimo)
Players live here for the season, but more than 50% of the team is recruited from the rest of the country, and stay with billet families here for the season. Out-of-town players PAY $450 a month to the host family for room and board.
