  1. I like where this thread has gone. USA hosted the WC in '94 with the provision the starts domestic league, they did and the results since speak for the league. Anyone who doesn't think MLS is a part of their success is a fool. Obviously money is the leading factor.
  2. Amen brutha. I am no American supporter as anyone who knows me here would confirm, but damn they are so far ahead of us it makes me sick. And hockey is next. Back the 60's, 70's and 80's most NHL players had summer jobs back in the home land, now they live in the US year 'round. Thus American children, but that is only the tip of it. US money means full year development camps. Ten times the population and ten times the funds leads to elite level status. My oldest is a semi-elite hockey kid at ten years of age. He is already being asked to choose a country. Absolutely insane.
  3. Actually, I think they said Begovic told them that. I am not saying it is correct, but that it was told to them.
  4. I recall writing that we aren't in the same 50 as the US, meaning FIFA ranking. Strictly speaking Martinique and Ventura County dont deserve to be on the same pitch as Canada, yet look at the results. Sport is a funny thing and that's why they actually play the games.

  6. Yes indeed they are. I laugh at those who think we are even in the same 50. We suck, they don't.
  7. Just threw up in my mouth hearing the ESPN commentators saying Begovic would have played for Canada, only they told him Lars was their choice. What a piece of ****e.
  8. US and Canada. Although US born, I am pretty sure they have been programmed sufficiently that Canada would be the choice.
  9. Yes, if I were you a thorough rethink of time and money is in order.
  10. What an embarrassment. Martinique deserved the win....my how our program has fallen. Harsh reality.
  11. Fox tv crew totally ripping Canada at the half. Comparing them to boys playing against men (Martinique). Looking lost and not a "team"
  12. I stand corrected, I didn't know ESPN had rights to all games in the US. Either way, still 50% of US WCQ games are not available to 95% of the US population.
  13. We are a small minority. Australian rules has more viewers. Same here, that's why Al Jazeera owns US soccer WCQ rights. My final comment, you nor I live in Europe live NA sport
  14. Guys I know it sucks to have the games SN World, but just imagine if 95% of your WCQ matches were on a even more obscure specialty channel. Such is the case in the US. The channel is called beIN Sport(owned by Al Jazeera) and wasn't even available on my Verizon FiOS tv until a couple of months ago. I know Fox and NBC Sports Network are carrying the Gold Cup, but in the grand scheme of things the Gold Cup is small potatoes compared to WCQ. I think ESPN gets the WCQ matches when the US plays Mexico. Many of my American friends are equally if not more angered, but TV and sport is a business not a charity.
  15. Me cant read. Me told all of canada is taranna, so tells TSN and CBC and CTV and SportsNet
  16. Me not from taranna, me so stupid. What parse mean? Me live in cave. Please show me you big smarts?
  17. All you new comers, well this has been the story since 1986. Now you are placing blame, simple answer is we are just not good enough as a team. All we had to was put those two chances in the back of the net. We didn't and, as usual, they did. We suck as a team. Inividually we have talent, but unfortunately it doesnt translate to team play.
  18. huh? A match with an MLS never was, reminds you of our national team. Taranna does not equate to WCQ.
