    I'm worried why they haven't told us who the mascots will be.😀

    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!

    Just to keep thecrqzy  trend of panicking in areas where we haven’t specifically heard news  (sponsors, tv/streaming deals, salary cap, etc...). 
    I don’t think any CPL team besides Forge and York are going to have enough players. This extremely reliable twitter account has only been tweeting rumours for York and Forge, so obviously none of the other teams have players. I am extremely worried about this.

    You are supposed to be celebrating the fantastic string of results we had in the last 12 months. Perfect record at home, away and at neutral sites, no goal allowed at home, away and at neutral sites, exciting team play against USVI, one goal away from a home record, a shutout win in Basseterre, better known as the "San Pedro Sula of the Caribbean".

    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.

    The El Salvadors and Panamas are draws in the U.S., so they actually get paid (or at least get their expenses covered) to play friendlies there.
    No one cares about Canada outside of our borders, which puts the onus on the CSA to pay for other teams to come play here (or provide an opponent for one of the countries that does draw in the U.S.).

    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!

    $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!

    Ya but we could say that about a lot of players! The CPL doesn't exist for that purpose.
