La puissance de l'Internet
The power of the Internet

| 2 Comments
Depuis quelques semaines je donne un coup de main à  la filliale d'Hudson de la Légion Royale et à  leur club de curling pour revitaliser un peu leur site web et de le maintenir à  jour.

Lorsque je cherchais des sources de nouvelles et de l'information à  propos de curling j'ai trouvé un site web qui s'appelle Skip Cottage Curling o๠l'on peut trouver des informations sur les événements de curling en Écosse et autour du monde ainsi que des éditoriaux et des commentaires. J'ai lu certains des articles qui y sont affichés et quand je suis arrivé à  la rubrique éditoriale d'octobre 2010 je me suis soudainement senti comme si je regardais un miroir parce que ce que l'auteur de la rubrique avait décrit était très similaire à  ce qui s'est passé concernant ce site web. La seule différence était le choix du sport, mais toutes les autres caractéristiques étaient similaires.

Je me suis senti soulagé et encouragé par le fait qu'il y avait une autre personne qui partageait les mêmes objectifs que moi, qui était aussi passionné par le sport qui lui était cher et qui cherchait à  atteindre les mêmes buts. Le site web o๠l'on peut trouver le texte original est ici. Je l'ai également reproduit ci-dessus à  la colonne gauche dans sa forme originale. Dans la colonne droite, je l'ai adopté légèrement en changeant seulement quelques mots ici et là . Par exemple, au lieu d'utiliser le mot « curling Â» j'ai mis « football Â» et là  o๠l'on mentionne RCCC (Royal Caledonian Curling Club), j'ai mis St-Lazare Football Association. Je vous invite, s'il vous plaît, de lire les deux textes et de me dire que c'est que vous en pensez.

J'invite aussi tous les visiteurs à  lire les autres rubriques que l'on peut trouver sur ce site, surtout celles pour novembre et septembre 2010. Je trouve que les sujets de ces deux rubriques sont aussi très à  propos pour la situation locale.

Si on considére la réaction que mon rapport sur le gala de la LFJQ avait provoqué, cet rubrique est arrivée à  l'heure juste.
Recently, I have been helping the Hudson Legion and their curling club to spruce up their web site a little bit and to keep it up-to-date.

In the process of doing this I was searching for sources of curling news and information and I came upon a web site called Skip Cottage Curling which provides information about curling events in Scotland and around the world as well as editorials and commentary. I read some of the articles that are posted on that web site and when I got to the editorial article for October 2010 I suddenly felt as if I was reading a story about the St-Lazare Football News because what the author of that editorial was describing was very similar to what has been happening regarding this web site. The only difference was the choice of sport that was covered but otherwise it was almost so similar it was eerie.

You couldn't believe how uplifiting and encouraging it was to see that there was another person who shared similar goals and ideals, who was equally passionate about a sport that was dear to him and who is trying to achieve similar goals. The web site where the original editorial is posted can be found here. I have also reproduced it below in the left hand column in its original form. In the right column, I have adopted it slightly by changing just a couple of words here and there. For example, I where it uses the word 'curling' I substituted 'football' and where it mentions RCCC (Royal Caledonian Curling Club) I have used St-Lazare Football Association. Please read the two and tell me if you see the similarities.

Also, I strongly recommend that you read the other editorials that are on the curling site, especially the ones for November and September 2010. I find that they also sound hauntingly familiar.

Judging from the reaction that my report on the QJFL banquet has triggered this article couldn't have come at a better time.

The same article modified by substituting only a few words to convey the story behind this web site

La même rubrique mais avec quelques changements qui la rende à  propos à  ce site.

What am I doing? That's today's question. Many of my friends have asked me about the blog, and what my plans are for Skip Cottage Curling. Most know what the blog is - it's an independent voice for the sport of curling in Scotland. Most also know how it came to be (if not, read here). What is its point? Where is it going and what is its future?

What am I doing? That's today's question. Many of my friends have asked me about the blog, and what my plans are for St-Lazare Football News. Most know what the blog is - it's an independent voice for the sport of amateur football in and around St-Lazare. Some people also know how it came to be (if not, please let me know and I will recount the whole story. Until now I have resisted the temptation to post it for fear of agravating even further the delicate relationship that exists between me and the St-Lazare Football Association). What is its point? Where is it going and what is its future?

The first thing I should say is that my blog activities are my hobby, something to do in my retirement that keeps body, and mind, active. Curling has been a huge part of my life, and has given me many opportunities. It is easy to say things like, "I want to give something back". But honestly, I'm not that altruistic. I'm simply doing something I enjoy. I like the challenge of finding information, of writing news reports, of travelling to ice rinks round the country, taking pictures of curlers of all ages enjoying the sport, and meeting people who also enjoy the game.

The first thing I should say is that my blog activities are my hobby, something to do while holding down a full-time job that keeps body, and mind, active. Amateur football has been a huge part of my life, and has given me many opportunities. It is easy to say things like, "I want to give something back". But honestly, I'm not that altruistic. I'm simply doing something I enjoy. I like the challenge of finding information, of writing news reports, of travelling to football fields around the area, taking pictures of football players of all ages enjoying the sport, and meeting people who also enjoy the game.

It's not a cheap hobby, as I discovered last year. I have my University pension which pays for the basics in my life. Running Skip Cottage Curling requires that I am able to travel and lodge away from home on occasion, that I have a laptop computer with a variety of software, and that my camera equipment is up for the job I want it to do. It would all be so much easier if I had a less expensive hobby. Stamp collecting? Actually yes, I do collect stamps and have an interest in thematic postal history, connected with curling of course! But that's another story which I'll tell some time.

It's not an expensive hobby based on my experience so far. Running St-Lazare Football News requires that I am able to travel away from home on occasion, that I have a laptop computer with a variety of software, and that I have some equipment that is up for the job I want to do. It would all be so much easier if I had a different hobby. Stamp collecting? Actually yes, I did collect stamps at one point but I found that it could be expensive at times depending on what kind of stamps one chooses to collect. I also have other hobbies like building models of cars and airplanes as well as some coin collecting but that's another story which I'll tell some time. However, the hobby that I have enjoyed the most for a long time now has been making breakfast on the weekends. Belgian waffles anyone? 

Initially I decided to fund the blog/online magazine for this season in two ways - by selling some curling stones and memorabilia that I had collected and which was really surplus to my own requirements. And to take some 'advertising income' from blog supporters who had come forward to help. Please support my advertisers!

Several blogallies had suggested I have a DONATE button. I am a proud person. I was not sure that begging for support was the way I wanted to go. However, I was persuaded to give this a try, and I have been stunned by the generosity of those who have already come forward with help. Thank you all.

*** This is the one area where the story of the St-Lazare Football News is a little bit different from the Skip Cottage Curling site because the existence of the web site costs me very little. I pay $10 per year for the domain name registration and only recently I decided to splurge an additional $36 per year for extra storage space and fewer restrictions on file uploads on the Freehostia web site.

The only other expenses are the travel costs but they amount to no more than $10-$15 per week during the football season.***

Last month the blog was visited by more than seven hundred unique users each day, with more than a thousand or so page loads in each twenty-four hours. Some days, many more than that log on. Of the visitors, most (80%) are from the UK, some 10% from North America, and, increasing, visitors to Skip Cottage Curling come from other parts of the curling world. I hope that every visitor gets informed, and entertained, by what they find. Of course my own efforts cannot ever be comprehensive, and I appreciate all the help I get from others. It's not always easy to find out what is happening, even within our own governing body, the Royal Caledonian Curling Club.

Last month the blog was visited by more than 60 unique users each day, with more than a hundred and twenty or so page loads in each twenty-four hours. Some days, many more than that log on. Of the visitors, most (90%) are from Canada, some 5% from North America, and, increasing, visitors to St-Lazare Football News come from other parts of the football world. I hope that every visitor gets informed, and entertained, by what they find. Of course my own efforts cannot ever be comprehensive, and I appreciate all the help I get from others. It's not always easy to find out what is happening, even within our own association, the St-Lazare Stallions, or any of the leagues that I cover.

Someone said to me recently, "You are a thorn in the side of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club." Let me state clearly that this is NOT my objective. I am a curler, first and foremost. Honesty and openness is what I care about. I have opinions, certainly. Occasionally, as in these editorials, I express what I think. Mostly though, my aim is simply to tell what is happening, and let readers make up their own minds, discuss things (for example on the Scottish Curling Forum), and act accordingly.

Someone made it clear to me recently that I was considered "... a thorn in the side of the St-Lazare Stallions Football Association." Let me state clearly that this is NOT my objective.

Mostly though, my aim is simply to tell what is happening, and let readers make up their own minds, discuss things (unfortunately, there are very few good football forums), and act accordingly.

Much of what goes on Skip Cottage Curling is about Scottish curlers and competitions. If this was all there was to do, it would be quite easy. But I feel that there is so much else out there in the greater curling world that blogallies* might be interested in, for example, the recent curling demonstration in Brazil (see here). I do spend time each day trawling for curling information on the web in general, on forums, blogs, Facebook and Twitter.

Much of what goes on St-Lazare Football News is about local football players and competitions. If this was all there was to do, it would be quite easy. But I feel that there is so much else out there in the greater football world that blogallies* might be interested in, for example, the recent spring football games in Cornwall. I do spend some time each day trawling for amateur football information on the web in general, on forums, blogs, Facebook and Twitter.

What bothers me is that there seems to be no-one in Scotland following in my footsteps. Where are the team websites or blogs? Where are the talented young curlers with media and photographic skills, or just enthusiasm, willing to showcase their efforts online? I see huge amounts of time and effort being put into Facebook activities, but this reaches only a fraction of those interested in the sport. I worry that when I am forced to finally unplug my computer, there will be no-one ready or willing to pick up the baton.

In my daily internet travels recently I came across on a CurlingZone forum someone looking for suggestions for a name for their curling blog. I wondered why. It turned out that Jordan Bauldic is a student at Manitoba's Media College, the Academy of Broadcasting in Winnipeg. He is being mentored by Resby Coutts, a curling journalist who has been in the sport as long (or longer?) than I have! Resby has a radio programme about curling and a website, thecurler.com, covering all things curling in Manitoba and further afield. Setting up a blog is just part of Jordan's year assisting Resby. Check out Jordan's The Last Rock blog.

In my daily internet travels I see very few interesting web site about amateur football. Other than the very impressive Footbec.com site and a few notable exceptions like the Île-Bizard Vikings, the Beauce Dragons, the North Shore Lions and the Repentigny Rhinos the number of web sites with information about amateur football is very small. The Vikings are actually the only organization that has any kind of a discussion forum on their web site and you will find many interesting posts on it. Wow, giving members an opportunity to express themselves. What a concept!

What a good idea, I thought. An apprentice! That's what Skip Cottage Curling needs. Anyone interested? I have lots of ideas, do you? And you don't need to take part in any television programme! Get in touch.

Le Gala de la Ligue LFJQ
The QJFL Banquet

Mis-à -jour 25 nov, 2010 : J'ai enlevé mes commentaires à  propos le discours de Me Saint-Marché parce qu'elles avaient créé des difficultés pour la ligue LFJQ et ce n'était pas du tout mon but quand je les avais écrites

Mis-à -jour 22 nov. 2010 : Je viens juste de me rendre compte que j'avais oublié de mentionner une chose trés importante : c'est le fait que j'avais assisté au gala à  l'invitation de la ligue. J'apprecie beaucoup la distinction que la ligue m'a offert et je la rémercie sincérement.

Mis-à -jour 21 nov. 2010
: j'ai eu une longue conversation par telephone avec M. Chance Saint-Marché, le fils de Me. Christina Saint-Marché, qui m'a appelé pour exprimer sa réaction à  mon reportage sur le discours de sa mère au cours du gala LFJQ.

Compte rendu sur le gala

Le samedi, 20 novembre, à  peine 250 personnes avaient assisté au gala annuel de la ligue LFJQ pour clore la saison 2010. On pouvait y trouver un groupe d'une vingtaine de personnes, dont 10 joueurs, qui représentaient l'équipe des Stallions Junior. Comme d'habitude, l'événement avait lieu au restaurant Le Boulevard à  Valleyfield.

Le vice-président de la ligue Don Stark avait entamé les cérémonies avec un discours sur les accomplissements de Joe Pistilli, le président de la ligue, qui avait reçu la distinction d'être intronisé au Temple des Rénommés de Football du Canada cinq mois plus tôt pour son dévouement au sport du football amateur pendant plus que 40 ans. Il avait aussi annoncé que le trophée du championnat de la ligue serait dorénavant connu comme la Coupe Joe Pistilli. Quand M. Pistilli avait embarqué la scène, il avait d'abord présenté un historique de la ligue à  partir de l'année 1981 et il avait mentionné la possibilité de l'adhésion de nouvelles équipes, possiblement dans les villes de Sherbrooke, Cornwall ou Kingston. Il avait aussi décrit les efforts faits par la ligue d'avoir une partie contre la ligue OVFL mais il avait souligné qu'il était peu probable qu'un tel match pourrait avoir lieu car la ligue OVFL semblait préférer d'étendre la limite d'âge des joueurs entre 18 et 25 ans au lieu de 18 à  22. À la fin, il avait présenté deux invitées spéciales : Christina Saint-Marché de la Fondation de Charité Saint-Bernard Pass aussi bien qu'Éric Lapointe qui assistait à  l'événement au nom de l'Association des Anciens des Alouettes. En suite, on avait identifié les récipiendaires des prix décernés par la ligue, dont quatre membres de l'équipe junior des stallions :

  • Chris McCarthy - meilleur joueur offensif de la semaine pour les semaines #2, #4 et #5
  • Kevin Morin-Lockheed - sélection à  l'équipe d'étoiles à  la position de secondeur de ligne en plus d'être choisi le meilleur joueur défensif de la semaine pour les semaines #4 et #5
  • Sam Hansen - sélection à  l'équipe d'étoiles à  la position de démi défensif
  • Charles-Olivier Conway - joueur le plus utile à  la défense (partagé avec #56 de Cumberland et #90 de Chateauguay)
Huit autres joueurs des Stallions se sont distingués avec des nominations pour des prix en plusieurs catégories. Ces joueurs étaient :

  • Dan Casavant - équipe d'étoiles à  la position du centre, meilleure recrue de l'année, joueur le plus utile sur les unités spéciales
  • Travis Hiscox - équipe d'étoiles, ligne offensive
  • Maxim Bourgon - équipe d'étoiles, quart-arrière
  • Chris McCarthy - équipe d'étoiles, porteur de ballon et le joueur le plus utile sur les unités spéciales
  • Chase Vieira - équipe d'étoiles, receveur
  • Andrew Palmer - équipe d'étoiles, ligne défensive
  • Charles-Olivier Conway - équipe d'étoiles, ligne défensive
  • Nick Lux - équipe d'étoiles , secondeur de ligne, le joueur de l'annéeAll-Star linebacker and Player of the Year
  • Pascal Plante - équipe d'étoiles, démi défensif
  • Jerry Mangan - joueur le plus utile sur les unités spéciales
Au milieu de la présentation des prix, Christina Saint-Marché avait présenté le Trophée Wally Buono au meilleur joueur junior du Canada qui est choisi selon ses accomplissements sur le terrain de même que sa personnalité et son engagement envers la communauté. Ce prix, qui existe depuis 2003, a été toujours gagné par un joueur de la ligue LFJC. Par contre, cette année, deux joueurs de la ligue LFJQ étaient en lice pour ce prix. Tous le deux jouaient pour les Raiders de Chateauguay et ils étaient #9 Mathieu René et #90 Kleevens Jean-Louis. C'était finalement Kleevens Jean-Louis qui avait reçu le trophée. C'était la première fois qu'on avait jamais mentionné ce trophée au cours d'un gala LFJQ (auquel j'avais assisté) et c'était un privilège pour la ligue LFJQ qu'un de ses joueurs avait mérite ce trophée.

Éric Lapointe, quant à  lui, avait présenté la bourse des Anciens Alouettes à  Larson Desormeaux, le #53 des Monarx de South Shore. Au cours de son discours il avait raconté comment le sport de football lui avait donné une raison pour retourner à  l'école, il avait encouragé les joueurs de persévérer et d'avoir le courage d'essayer de diverses choses. Finalement, il avait rappelé à  tous les joueurs que c'est sont eux les prochains leaders. Le gala s'est achevé à  15 heures.

 

Nov. 25, 2010 update: I have removed my comments regarding the speech delivered by Mrs. Sainte-Marché because they ended up generating some difficulties for the QJFL, which they were never intended to do.

Nov. 22, 2010 update: I realized that I omitted to post one very important piece of information which is that I attended the banquet as a guest of the QJFL, a distinction that I appreciate very much and for which I sincerely thank the league.

Nov. 21, 2010 update; I had a long telephone conversation today with Chance Saint-Marché, the son of Mrs. Christina Saint-Marché, who called me to express how upset he was about my reporting of the speech that his mother made at the QJFL banquet.

Banquet report

On November 20, about 250 persons attended the QJFL annual banquet to close out the 2010 season. Among them was a delegation of about 20 persons, including 10 players, representing the Junior Stallions. As usual, the banquet took place at Restaurant Le Boulevard in Valleyfield.

The actual ceremonies started at around 1:30 pm when league vice-president Don Stark paid a tribute to Joe Pistilli, the league president, describing his induction into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, his more than 40 years of dedication to football and the renaming of the championship trophy in his honor. In his own address to the attendees, Mr. Pistilli briefly described the history of the QJFL going back to 1981 and the possibility of new teams joining the league, possibly in Sherbrooke, Cornwall or Kingston. He also described the league's efforts to organize games with the OVFL but he indicated that this was unlikely since that league was leaning more towards a junior division in the 18-25 year age bracket instead of 18-22. Finally, he introduced two special guests: Christina Saint-Marché from the Saint Bernard Pass Charitable Foundation and Eric Lapointe who represented the Alouettes Alumni Association.

This was followed by the presentation of league awards. Four members of the Stallions junior team received awards:
  • Chris McCarthy - offensive player of the week, weeks #2, #4 and #5
  • Kevin Morin-Lockheed - All-Star linebacker and defensive player of the week for weeks #4 and #5
  • Sam Hansen - All-Star DB
  • Charles-Olivier Conway - MVP defense (shared with #56 from Cumberland and #90 from Chateauguay)
In addition, eight Stallions received nominations for awards in various categories. These players were:
  • Dan Casavant - All-Star center, rookie of the year and MVP special teams
  • Travis Hiscox - All-Star O-line
  • Maxim Bourgon - All-Star QB
  • Chris McCarthy - All-Star RB and MVP Special Teams
  • Chase Vieira - All-Star WR
  • Andrew Palmer - All-Star D-line
  • Charles-Olivier Conway - All-Star D-line
  • Nick Lux - All-Star linebacker and Player of the Year
  • Pascal Plante - All-Star DB
  • Jerry Mangan - MVP special teams

In the middle of the awards ceremonies, Christina Saint-Marché presented the Wally Buono Award for the best junior player in Canada, based not only on the player's football achievements but also on his personality and community involvement. This award was started in 2003 and until now they were always won by players from the CJFL. This year, however, the two finalists were both representing the QJFL and they were both from Chateauguay: #9 Mathieu René and #90 Kleevens Jean-Louis. The award was ultimately won by Kleevens Jean-Louis.
This was the first time that this award was ever even mentioned at any QJFL event (that I ever attended) and it was certainly a great privilege for a QJFL player to win it.

Eric Lapointe, for his part, presented the Alouettes Alumni Bursary to #53 Larson Desormeaux from the Monarx. In his speech, he described how football gave him the incentive to go back to school, encouraged players to persevere and to have the courage to try things and he also reminded the players that they are the next leaders. The ceremonies concluded at 3 pm.

Une soirée de l'équipe
A team night out
La traduction est en cours. Désolé. On November 1, barely a week after their season finished in the nail-biter game against the Chateauguay Raiders, Stallions junior team met together at the Cage aux Sports restaurant in Vaudreuil-Dorion to look back at the season and to say farewell to head coach Skip Rochette who was heading back to Florida as he usually does before the winter season starts.
Unfortunately, coach Rochette had to excuse himself at the last minute because of sickness but the team still enjoyed their night out. Andy Vieira prepared a 20-minute highlight film that was shown on one of the large screens.

What was very special about this event was that the coaching staff used the occasion to hand out their own Top Gun / Game Ball awards to players who made outstanding contributions to the team. The award was an actual football that had the player's name written on the side. The following players received the award:
  • Kevin Morin-Lockheed
  • Nick Lux
  • Jerry Mangan
  • Dan Casavant
  • Pascal Plante
  • Andrew Palmer
  • Maxim Bourgon
  • Charles-Olivier Conway
Coach Rick Chabot also announced that he would not be able to return as a coach next season because of family reasons. Here are a couple of photos from the event.

Il y a quelques mois j'avais affiché une liste des meilleurs performances individuelles pour les équipes bantam et midget des Stallions pour 18 catégories différentes. Pour l'équipe bantam, la liste couvrait les années 2004 à  2009 lorsque pour l'équipe midget elle couvrait les années 2005 à  2009.

Or, la saison 2010 terminée, j'ai pris les statistiques pour la saison 2010 et j'ai fait un mis-à -jour.
Bonne lecture!
Earlier this season I posted a list of the best individual performances for the bantam and midget Stallions teams in 18 different categories. For the bantam team the list covered the years 2004-2009 while for the midget team it covered the years 2005-2009.

Now that the 2010 season is over I have updated the lists to include the performances from the 2010 season.

Good reading!

Duane Butler and Football University, together with Grass Roots Prospects, are coming back to the Montreal area to run a combine for bantam (or cadet) and midget (or juvenile) age football players.

More information can be found at the GrassRootsProspects.com website.
La saison 2010 terminée, on peut maintenant jeter un coup d"oeil sur les statistiques pour les équipes bantam et midget. Les stats pour l'équipe junior sont disponibles sur le site web de la LFJQ mais il faut tenir compte qu'elles ne contiennent que les données pour sept parties parmi les huit parties qu'elle avait joué pendant la saison regulière.

Quant à  l'équipe bantam, les statistiques sont basées seulement sur six des 11 parties qu'elle avait joué parce que je ne pouvait pas assister à  quelques matches et le films des joutes n'étaient pas disponibles non plus.

Je vais mettre à  jour les fichiers des performance records de ces deux équipes au cours de la semaine qui vient et je vais les afficher ensuite.
Now that the 2010 season is over it's time to look at the season statistics for the bantam and midget teams. The stats for the junior team can be found on the QJFL web site although it should be kept in mind that they are based on only seven of the eight regular season games that they played.

For the bantam team on the other hand, the stats are based on only six of the 11 games that they played because I was not able to attend some of their games and there was no game film from which the stats data could be generated.

The updated file with the bantam and midget team record performances will be posted during the coming week.
