    Congrats on making the all Canadian team. Doug doesn't seem to appreciate you as he should of. Seize these opportunities while you can, you have the world in your palm.

    This should not have been put in the paper until Vicki had a chance to tell her teammates, family and friends. Why would John do this to her? He even states that she would not be telling her teammates until Saturday yet he put it in on Friday.

    She will be a huge loss to the Sea-Hawks but sometimes these decisions have to be made. It is her decision and she has to make it for herself. She can not live for other people. She needs to live for herself. I hope she goes out there and enjoys her experience.

    Good luck Vicki!

    I think that her decision is hers to make. I have enjoyed watching her play at a high level for two years and I wish her well in whatever she decides to do.

    Now we know what Doug was speaking of when he mentioned there is an issue on te team and it still existed during the AUS playoffs. As we know the team was close knit. This was talked about during little chats among the team no doubt, and some fo the team perhaps did not like the idea af the team breaking up. Doug saw the tension and knew his team was struggling with an issue, this being the issue. Now that this is out, we can see why the team faltered. Beat of Luck in your ventures Vicki. we will surely miss you here

    Vicki Thistle is a fantastic player, Doug Partridge is a fantastic coach, and they both have a high degree of respect for one another.
    I think it's disappointing this article is trying to paint a different picture.

    Young people decide to try new courses in life. Thistle will be an asset to whatever school she chooses both on the court and off. It's a bit annoying how John Browne is always trying to cause controversy even when there isn't one.

    I think it's great that she made a decision and stuck to it! There seems to be a lot of pressure in that league to stay put and perform because of what other people want. As for Doug and Bob those comments are unnecessary and are just hurtful. You are terrible people.

    No point in being young unless you get to make a few decisions, experience things, and maybe do things other people don't agree with. Lot of pressure on this gal - and seems to me she needs someone to say - you're doing just fine - and don't worry. so there!
