Does anyone on this forum think that it is a tad disrespectful on the part of the NASL to not schedule a game in Edmonton on a CANADIAN long holiday weekend?

And FC Edmonton also play IN Jacksonville on Canada Day - Could that have been reversed?

With it being May long weekend, a lot of people would have been out of town I think.

Most other leagues still schedule games on long weekends, but to schedule a bye week for FCE on a long weekend is very strange.
The Labour day classic in Calgary is always sold out, Blue jays always had a home series during canada day weekend that is sold out.
Atleast those leagues recognize Canada.Even MLS scheduled two canadian home games in Montreal and Vancouver but left Toronto to play in NYC. Unfortuntaley so did the USL, leaving Ottawa to play in NYC as well. Thankfully when the CPL comes on line we won't have to be concerned about that.

We originally had a game scheduled in New York but that was moved to Wednesday the 7th due to the Cosmos playing a friendly in Saudi Arabia this weekend.

Not disrespectful at all. In fact, I welcome it with the type of crowd FCE attracts.
