    CPL General

    You know you're old when whenever the Fury is mentioned, I'm thinking Winnipeg!

    Change "when" to a mighty big "IF". It's like saying "when" the League of Wales is as good as the Premiership, will Swansea and Cardiff City be forced to move? Granted, that example is extreme as CPL will not be that much weaker than MLS but in Canada, it will come down to commercial viability. With TFC drawing 27k per match, would you really want it to join a league averaging less than 8k per match? It would be cutting off one's nose to spite the face! USL and CPL will be comparable thus making this current scenario feasible and realistic!

    Yes, well said!

    IMO, this had to happen!

    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    In the same vein of crazy panicking, I am extremely worried that there are not yet line-ups outside the stadiums for opening day! C'mon people! Show your excitement and loyalty. Set up a tent and get ready to cheer on your team. You've only got three months!

    I was also sorry to see him go. The problem was that he was making too much money. I wonder what he is paid at Dundee.

    We've lost Jarrek! :(

    We've lost Jarrek, one of the original Voyageurs. I've only just found out. Jaroslaw Popowicz is his real name and I met him via the Toronto Lynx many years ago! He was a great guy and I'm in shock! RIP my friend! https://lm.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fturnerporter.permavita.com%2Fsite%2FJaroslawPopowicz.html%3Fs%3D40&h=AT0s5OVlXNYEFBIs2hoNcu3nmmhg13_IAWTVuD91jJN4wmeXAadrN8xlN9it0SyNRUsFXQfhe2a2EU50dufrEDhTywdUjPqUhNGSGmJVSLgRHJYcaaWn67euTTueyqtcRYagJZG348s

    Herdman new head coach

    But I do know!

    Somebody has it!

    Herdman new head coach

    Well, you could say the other half is the CSA's fault for hiring him in the first place! Discreet? Most likely a mutual agreement to not air dirty laundry. He had nothing to be gained in a mud slinging contest!

    Herdman new head coach

    Can't argue with that. We're all just trying to make some sense of it.

    Herdman new head coach

    Very possible and others have mentioned here, perhaps his reason to want to move to the men was that the women may be in line for a downward trajectory while the men hold lots of promise. Maybe.

    Herdman new head coach

    You could think "Wow, Zambrano must have really messed up behind the scenes to be ditched so soon!" and you'd be right.

    Herdman new head coach

    I'm not speculating! I've heard more than enough from multiple sources but I'm not at liberty to disclose! He was a disastrous hire leaving the CSA in a no win position! His firing was inevitable. Ref is saying his firing was a mistake although he has no idea of why he might have been fired. Now that makes no sense! Edit: I'll just add that I was just as disconcerted by the firing/hiring as anybody else and I am just as skeptical as anybody else. I'm not a blind faith supporter of Herdman but as this is the situation we are in, I'm going to let him succeed or fail on his own merits and record. For the sake of Canada, I just hope that he succeeds even if he does so in spite of himself.

    Herdman new head coach

    You really can't say that without knowing why he was fired. The dumb decision was much more likely the one made to hire him in the first place.
  16. dbailey62

    Herdman new head coach

    Perhaps a mutual non-disclosure agreement.
  17. dbailey62

    Herdman new head coach

    My understanding is that there is a lot more to his dismissal than that.
  18. dbailey62

    Herdman new head coach

    Possibly because he knows some sort of reality that we do not. I wonder if Octavio is still being paid!

    CPL TV Contract

    Honestly, I've no idea.
  20. dbailey62

    CPL TV Contract

    Agreed. It's a very crowded market but that's why TSN2 and Sportsnet360 exist.
  21. dbailey62

    CPL TV Contract

    $5.2 Billion over 12 years. Much more likely CPL would have to pay to get on the air or outright purchase the time and try to support the production via commercial revenue. I doubt the original CSL made a cent from TSN. Exposure was the key!

    Herdman new head coach

    I don't disagree.

    Herdman new head coach

    It wouldn't surprise me if there are financial issues at play here.
  24. Ya but we could say that about a lot of players! The CPL doesn't exist for that purpose.

    CPL General

    Yes. Bunbury in Hamilton, Montreal and Toronto. I remember watching Fernando Aguiar score a hat-trick against LA Salsa. Onstad in Winnipeg. Berdusco in NY. Mobilio and Catliff in Vancouver. Lyndon Hooper! Lots of players who became household names who went on to good careers!
