    Ballou Tabla

    @JamboAl and I were totally on the fence about the game, but once we saw Tabla commit today we had to jump on some tickets!!! /s

    General Discussion on CMNT

    2-5-3? Was Piette in the middle with Arfield and Osorio? I think I’m going to bet the over for this game.

    General Discussion on CMNT

    So with BT in do we play a 3-4-3 vs Dominica? Borjan Cornelius - Henry - De Jong Junior - Arfield - Osorio - Davies Tabla - Cav - David

    Bandwagon era?! Never thought the CanMNT would have bandwagoners!

    CPL General

    Without proper definition of some of these terms that are being used by the CPL, DC and team reps it's impossible to decipher how much roster costs will be. That being said I think a player and coaching budget of $1.25M, which would represent 25% of the $5M operating cost number, would be reasonable.
  6. At it's simplest, the OECD is a group of 36 countries that represent the worlds leading economies. Member countries are like minded in the promotion of democracy and market economies with almost all earning amongst the highest levels of income, quality of life and development. These countries work to promote economic development and trade both within the organization and elsewhere. More specifically the OECD is invaluable when it comes to the collection and publication of key economic data and statistics which helps countries like Canada make important decisions in all facets of government. The OECD also produces many major working papers and reference pieces on topics like human development, taxation and governance which help member countries, NGOs and the private sector navigate many different objectives. As a member of the OECD, Canada's economy has benefited immensely both domestically and in foreign markets because of the connections and partnerships we've made both with the organization as a whole and with individual members. Edit: just gave the article you linked a quick read and it seems the OECD has issue with Canada's foreign aid spending falling about 20% below the organization average. That makes sense considering targets are made jointly with other members on the assumption that all will work towards those targets and when one member doesn't pull its weight the goals of those targets are in jeopardy.
  7. You clearly don’t understand the value of the OECD.

    Goudie has said that their deal with the USL allows them to leave at anytime with no cost.

    Interesting to note that if the $5M figure is correct then the initial cap of $1.5M would make sense. In many different fields a labour cost of <30% is always the target.

    This was 7-8 years ago and Melnyk had a meeting with Garber and the MLS.

    Well he wanted to build it in Kanata so who knows. Look at how his tenure as owner of the Sens has gone.

    Well said Rob. I must say it’s very refreshing to have your thoughtful, rational and insightful voice around here again.

    I agree with Steve Sandor that refusing sanctioning for 2019 would accomplish nothing. I think it’s a formality I just find it interesting that Mark Goudie insists that the Fury are sanctioned for 2019 yet the CSA felt it important to comment and state that it is not completed.

    Fair enough. They have switched the camera pits to the north side so it only take 6-8K to make the place look “full” from the cameras perspective. I honestly think the Fury could have easily got those numbers regularly in the CPL.
