  2. This is a good discussion to have. But I don't have the time or patience to commit a couple of hours to write out my responses with the proper nuance. Given my experiences of working with various groups, there are no simple answers.
  3. Right, any half decent footy bar should be getting ready for streaming as the Champions League will be on DAZN only.
  4. Although a lot of the above is true, I agree with @mpg_29 that so much of this could have been solved/avoided with proper moderation. If every thread is devolving into the same argument, the moderator needs to step in and tell users to stay on topic. If there is one specific argument that is coming up repeatedly, make a thread for that discussion and then the debaters can use that thread. Threads should be more specific. If you have a CPL General thread, it is not surprising if it becomes chaotic. There is no focus. Or, those general threads should have specific rules like...post news only, no
  5. Why are they no longer posting, or posting less frequently? The main reason from the people I talk to is the lack of moderation. The vast majority seem to agree that that should be changed. If that is done properly, things will improve To expect an internet forum to be a bastion of unity is foolish. It is simply a vehicle to facilitate discussion which includes disagreement.
  6. Where did @BrennanFan say that being around longer means you are a bigger Canadian soccer fan? He never did. That is simply dishonest. He said seniority and knowledge should be respected, which I agree with. When I joined the forum, I didn't post every single ignorant thought that crossed my mind. I read a lot and I learned from posters like Ed and Daniel and Grizzly. When I asked questions, I did so looking for information from those that had it, not to find something I could have learned by asking Google. That is appropriate forum behaviour which in turn will add to, not distract from,
  7. For a log time, I have used these forums as a catch all for important Canadian soccer news. As an example, living in BC, we barely get any Montreal Impact coverage. Having a thread on their season allows me to stay abreast on their recent performances and get opinion from posters that I have come to know and respect. If club team forums were eliminated, I would lose that. I don't have the time or the patience to register for different forums for all of the professional teams. This has been my one stop shop. If the news is big enough, I know it will be talked about here.
  8. Holy crap. I have the guy on ignore already, now he is sending personal messages too? I changed my settings so those are ignored also, but this has gone too far now.
  9. Update: Now at 15 caps June 3, 2016 - Friendly, Rohrbach an der Lafnitz: Canada 1 - Azerbaijan 1 June 7, 2016 - Friendly, Bad Waltersdorf: Canada 2 - Uzbekistan 1 September 6, 2016 - WCQ, Vancouver: Canada 3 - El Salvador 1
  10. 12 Caps August 18th, 2004 - WCQ, Burnaby: Canada 0 - Guatemala 2 October 13th, 2004 - WCQ, Burnaby: Canada 1 - Costa Rica 3 July 2, 2005 - Friendly, Burnaby: Canada 1 - Honduras 2 July 7, 2005 - Gold Cup, Seattle: Canada 0 - Costa Rica 1 July 9, 2005 - Gold Cup, Seattle: Canada 0 - USA 2 May 31, 2008 - Friendly, Seattle: Canada 2 - Brazil 3 August 20, 2008 - WCQ, Toronto: Canada 1 - Jamaica 1 September 6, 2008 - WCQ, Montreal: Canada 1 - Honduras 2 November 14, 2009 - Friendly, Strumica: Canada 0 - Macedonia 3 November 18, 2009 - Friendly, Bydgoszcz: Canada 0 - Poland 1
  11. That is not the same. That takes you to the last post in the topic. I want to be taken to the last UNREAD post in the topic. Am I missing it?
  12. There used to be a function that allowed you to go to the last unread post in a topic thread. I don't see that anymore. Am I missing it or does it no longer exist? That saved me a lot of time and would hate to see it gone.
  13. Personally, I like the division the way it is right now.
  14. Any chance one of these happens somewhere other than Toronto?
  15. Any update for those of us from out of town?
  16. I do believe some sort of moderation is required. Not just for arguments/name calling, but getting rid of spam, pinning the proper threads, etc.
  17. Same here. Hopefully see you again in Edmonton if we get a Caps v FCE Voyageurs Cup matchup.
  18. I've been sitting on 10 caps for the last 5 years. I hope I get a call up soon. Also hope the national team comes back to BC. More disappointing is that I have never seen a win. My record is 1 draw and 9 losses. August 18th, 2004 - WCQ, Burnaby: Canada 0 - Guatemala 2 October 13th, 2004 - WCQ, Burnaby: Canada 1 - Costa Rica 3 July 2, 2005 - Friendly, Burnaby: Canada 1 - Honduras 2 July 7, 2005 - Gold Cup, Seattle: Canada 0 - Costa Rica 1 July 9, 2005 - Gold Cup, Seattle: Canada 0 - USA 2 May 31, 2008 - Friendly, Seattle: Canada 2 - Brazil 3 August 20, 2008 - WCQ, Toronto: Canada
  19. I will donate a few dollars. I should be in Toronto on Wednesday. Is there somebody I can give it to?
  20. I have found that since we began this discussion (regarding blog posts), the problem has kind of solved itself. I think things are much better now than they were before. Edit: Except for a new poster that has just emerged.
