  1. The complete EODSA statement from their website: May 3, 2017 Re: Ottawa Player Development Program (OPDP) Dear Members, The Eastern Ontario District Soccer Association (EODSA) is sending out this communication to provide clarification and an update regarding the situation involving the Ottawa Player Development Program (OPDP). A number of Clubs within the EODSA chose to withdraw some of their team entries from the Grassroots divisions being offered by the East Region Soccer League (ERSL). Clubs are permitted to withdraw teams from league divisions and the EODSA is not permitted to reject a Club’s team withdrawal. The EODSA is not permitted to force a Club to re‐enter teams in a division from which it has withdrawn. It was brought to the EODSA’s attention that these Clubs were intending to operate a Program/League that was not an approved or sanctioned Program/League of the EODSA or Ontario Soccer. The EODSA has been managing this situation over the last month as per Ontario Soccer Procedures. The OPDP situation has come to a conclusion as of April 27th, 2017 with a written confirmation that the OPDP website had been shut down and that the OPDP would not operate. The Clubs have chosen not to re‐enter withdrawn teams in the ERSL and that is a choice they are permitted to make. The Clubs will be looking at alternate competition options within the rules defined by the EODSA and Ontario Soccer. The EODSA will continue to monitor the situation to ensure competitions are within Ontario Soccer Procedures. If any Clubs have evidence that proves this Program/League is operating, they can send the information to Joe Scheier at admin@eodsa.ca and the EODSA will review and manage accordingly. Sincerely, Brian Mason EODSA President
  2. I heard that some of the info, if not the site was taken down, I will see if I can track down the link.
  3. They first tried to set-up a Sunday night league (for u9-u12) that would have set strict minimum requirements that would have excluded most other clubs from the league except the mighty 7. As a result several players from our small club have already moved to one of these clubs to be able to play "Tier 1" soccer. When the EODSA prevented this from happening they set-up the rogue league, including a website with standings, contrary to the OSA development program. Ottawa soccer is in a mess right now including OCSL (senior) teams looking to set-up an unsanctioned league and the possibility of the EODSA going bankrupt. It discouraging to dedicate yourself to the game and then see this ego driven garbage going on.
  4. ^That doesn't even look like NASL level.
  5. I was surprised to see him in the starting line-up and he was invisible unless he was making bad plays, TFC even lost him in the expansion draft to NYCFC and traded to get him back!
  6. Reports that Harry Shipp coming from Chicago to Montreal. http://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2016/02/13/chicago-fire-trade-harry-shipp-montreal-impact

    Whitecaps Offseason 2015-16

    That's 11 Internationals on the roster, how many I spots does Vancouver have?
  8. As a member are you able to bring your concerns to the board of this type of branding? Agreed, very interesting.
  9. My understanding is that MLS only signs a senior to a contract when at least one club agrees to draft the player. So if for example if Colorado committed to Irving and if when their last pick comes around and Irving is still undrafted, then they have to draft that player.
  10. Mark-Anthony Kaye signs with Louisville City FC, shows the value of the 2 teams, gives opportunities to player to continue playing while opening up other options.
  11. Talk about Drogba going to Chelsea heating up, Montreal sports radio commentators this morning seem to feel that it will happen. Would be a devastating loss to the Impact both on and off the field after their late run last season.
  12. Camara has been removed from today's re-enrty draft listing, at his salary he was unlikely to be drafted.
  13. These #s should go up next year, except for Aparicio and Clarke all Canadians on MLS rosters are either under contract or have had their options picked up.
