Just to keep thecrqzy  trend of panicking in areas where we haven’t specifically heard news  (sponsors, tv/streaming deals, salary cap, etc...). 

I don’t think any CPL team besides Forge and York are going to have enough players. This extremely reliable twitter account has only been tweeting rumours for York and Forge, so obviously none of the other teams have players. I am extremely worried about this.

I'm worried why they haven't told us who the mascots will be.😀

Or maybe, it's because the person behind CPL Transfers is someone from Ontario with a lot of contacts there and may have zero contacts outside of Ontario.

I didn't think Darren O'Dea was good for TFC, but I'll be happy if he comes to CPL. I think he's still a very good level for the league to be attracting.

That was my argument for me he was not good enough for TFC, however, would be a major signing for this league and a good one.

I don't remember Steven Hoyle but I've got him in some of my game reports.  He played for Toronto Lynx PDL in 2013 in a season where they finished pretty decently with 5 wins, 7 losses, 2 ties for 17 points and missed the playoffs by 1 point (5th of 7 teams) behind two teams with 18 points.

The returning Winnipeg player thing may be about having no accommodation provided for out-of-town players as much as it is about the coach. There also seems to be an emphasis on signing local players elsewhere, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Maybe just as well Surrey didn't happen and that there are two Golden Horseshoe teams from a competitive parity standpoint. Import players should help address that more effectively, however, than was the case in the CSL era given there are more allowed this time around.

You always have the most pessimistic outlook. What’s your motivation?

Expect the worst, that way you're more excited if things work out I'd imagine, and not as disappointed if it doesn't. I catch myself doing it sometimes.

Ali Musse's entire family moved to Edmonton 2-3 years ago.

Dylan Carreiro's hasn't called Winnipeg home in 10 years or so. Family lives in GTA. 

By this report, Musse likely turned down Edmonton and Calgary. Or maybe teams get first crack at a certain number of locals and nobody else can try?

Sure, but this is beyond tempering expectations. It’s a concerted and vocal negative spin on every single detail or rumour. It accomplishes nothing but squelching excitement. I’d like to know why

That was one of the player pools mentioned by David Clanachan, so they are deliberately pushing the local angle. Will be interesting to see what happens when the transfer window opens and whether the claims that people close to the Fury have made are valid and if so have an obvious effect on who signs where.

Probably just an approach of reasonableness re: Foothills.  Cavalry can’t possibly get to keep that whole team plus they got the first overall pick, who is also a forward. 

It makes sense that Musse is an odd man out when he can be called a “hometown guy” on another team and generate local buzz. 

I think it would be cool to see what type of Xmas wish lists we can come up with using 1 keeper, 2 defenders, 2 midfielders and 2 attackers (all Canadian and within reason).. here is mine for Forge FC: 

Keeper: Roberts

Defenders: Gasparotto, Murrell 

Mids: Awuah, Laryea

Attackers: Reid, D.Haber

Come on... 

He’s entitled to his opinion and it adds a sort of balance to the discussion.  Do I agree? Not always, but he can think of the league as he sees fit (and be proved wrong).  

There's no balance. He's anti-CanPL and no piece of evidence that counters his entrenched position will shift him, nor will any amount of evidence debunking his BS stop him continuing to roll out that same BS again and again, ad nauseum. He's a cancer on this board and needs fucking off.
