  • The first step in making some major necessary changes to the Voyageurs, is moving the forum.

    The major reasons being:

    • Separation of the forum from The Voyageurs as a group to limit possible damage from content. 
    • The ability to more heavily moderate the forum without the sense that people are being suspended or banned from The Voyageurs as a group
    • Decrease the view of the Voyageurs as simply a forum, that many people are not comfortable to join.  They need to join a group.
    • The divisive nature of inter city bullshit
    • The divisive nature of club soccer 
    • Attract those that are soccer fans in this country but do not want to be part of a national team organization and are hesitant to participate in the forum.  
    • Increase in traffic as a general Canadian forum/hub for club and national team soccer can drive more people to The Voyageurs.
    • Drive more traffic to Canadian podcasts and blogs with the forum being integrated into CSN as a general Canadian soccer hub.
    • Impending draconian copyright laws

    Please test things out on the new site, and email me at socceronly@gmail.com   If you run into any problems. 


    Check out the forum's new home on CSN, which will be built into a general hub for all Canadian soccer.


We've lost Jarrek! :(

I've been off and on this forum for awhile and just hearing about this after receiving an email regarding the match this afternoon. It's very emotional for me although I never did meet him in person. I do remember him as one of the original members and very active with this forum that helped bring our community together. What he did is amazing. Im glad that we will be honouring him this afternoon. RIP Jarrek. Deepest sympathies to his family.

I've just seen this as well. Very sad to pass at such a young age.

Jarrek had a huge influence on early football support in Toronto and Canada. Without some of those early-millennium innovators, who knows where we'd be today. Glad I got to meet him in 2002 for a summer of Toronto Lynx matches.

If you live in a smaller city without an MLS or CPL team, the best tribute you could give Jarrek would be to start a supporters' group for your local team.

    Posts as of noon ET  April 15th will not carry over in the forum move. 

    So please feel free to browse the forum, but don't bother writing your soccer manifesto at this point as it will not be carried over.
