    Yes, agreed, we have a problem here.

    It's too bad the CCL isn't a month later. Another half-a-dozen games under our belt will make a world of difference!
  3. The blackouts are annoying but I have the TSN package so do not effect me in a major way. I bought in based on the $150 per year price which also gives me La Liga and Serie A. That price for MLS alone I would not have done. You also have the ability to watch archived matches so I'm bought and sold! In fairness to the the provider, the blackouts are the inevitable fallout from TSN's exclusive deal with MLS in Canada. They own the rights and won't allow anybody to violate their rights.
  4. It's only $150 for the year? Nice! The 48 hour thing on MLSLive was for games that had been blocked out, not the games they had webcast.

    Exactly but don't show up at BMO on Tuesday as the game is on Wednesday!

    Yes exactly. Parity = Mediocrity. Let's the rich spend!

    Too many new guys still syncing in.

    He'd be fifth after Vazquez. TAM = Targetted Allocation Money It's for use on players above the cap but not marquis DP's. The league knows more money was needed to compete with Mexicans in the CCL so they give a certain amount of TAM to each team for new contracts plus have allowed each team to pay out $4 million over two years for the same purpose if the club wishes to spend that money.
  9. ..... as was the case with MLS Live.
  10. That's more to do with TSN and TVA of course. One day it will change.
  11. So $20 Cdn per month. I'm not saying no right off the bat. I'll need to research this further. Zero interest in NFL. I do watch out of market MLS game and the allure of a consistent and quality La Liga package is tempting. Do any of you have experience with DAZN?

    .... and that is how it should be! The CPL can't have half-a-a dozen loose cannons shooting off in all directions!

    The pitch at the Big O is not a surface that any credible soccer entity would want to utilize. It is despised!
  14. That game vs Colombia was at Red Bull arena in Harrison, New Jersey. It was a lot of fun and it was sold out as part of a double-header, you're right. Canada would have received an appearance fee of some sort although I'm sure we were just happy to be there. A narrow 1 nil loss. The Colombia supporters and local fans were all over us after the match complimenting Canada on their performance.
  15. At minimum we would be paying the visiting club's expenses and there would also be some sort of appearance fee. Let's also not forget the cost of flying in our own players from all over the world plus their room and board. These things do add up. .... and then there are the venue costs. If the public is going to support, then we're good. The "announced" 6k crowd in Montreal, last year, for Curaçao isn't really going to cut it but in a case like that, the CSA knew we had to have a pre-Gold Cup match so they accepted the loss. Can't do that all the time though.

    Probably so, a team option, although I doubt TFC would stand in his way if he wanted to leave.

    TFC 2018

    The whispers are that VV would like to end his career in Spain so it's unlikely he'd leave until his three year contract is up after the 2019 season.

    True although there may be a discount for buying in advance.

    So you are not a STH I presume? It's a cool free bonus for us.

    Sure, scare the s--t out of me. "Re-signs", great!!
  21. Meanwhile a 3rd or 4th place in CONCACAF would make him a genius!
  22. Nobody has said OZ is incompetent. I don't believe any of us were unhappy with his running of the team. There have been intimations re the behind the scenes administrative element but I'm not at liberty to repeat any of it. It does seem though that it was the non on the field elements that may have been his downfall.
  23. Ya, ok. If "ass kissing" equates to "let's see what he can achieve", then yes, there sure is a lot of "ass kissing" going on around here!
