    I regularly attend Fury games, and even I didn't bother to show. Yesterday was beautiful, and I took the family to the park and an art gallery instead. 
    Honestly, it was the first weekend in 6 months that Ottawa hasn't been a grey overcast frozen wasteland. We weren't spending it in a stadium sitting in one spot.

    Actually the weather was gorgeous yesterday - first really sunny and mild day of the spring (14 C).  I noticed the roads and sidewalks were especially busy so I think people had other things in mind than soccer.  Shame really.

    You are correct but according to the club this will be remedied. Apparently the club management has to present their criminal record from the police. Their Vice-President is new and is either German or lived in Germany and could not get the records in time for the application from the German police. They have until the 23rd to submit them and the club is confident he will have a copy of his criminal record by then.

    I finally picked up my season ticket last night with the USL branded scarf.  I think I will wear it to every CPL game I go to this season to incite the locals.  Ha ha!

    Ok, I’ll bite on this one.  What are you trying to prove here?  
    Does that mean when the Forge (for example) plays a home game and the attendance is announced as 9,000 that I can question its legitimacy by posting a photo with tons of empty seats at the kickoff of the second half?

    For once, choices are having to be made which games to go to cause there are now more than I can remember.  Tack in the must of going to at least one CPL game, the women’s send off friendly, the Voyageurs Cup and watching the local USL/PDL team, Canadian soccer supporters now have more options than ever.  That’s not a bad thing!

    So couple comments on the more recent posts.

    As far as which side, there was still snow on the other side, and while I feel soccer should start up in May and end in October in Canada, you play the hand you are dealt. At least they have a stadium that can accommodate both sides, and has turf immune to the weather.

    Second, lets be honest here guys. Between Investors group field and Tim Hortons Field, it's wishful thinking that there aren't going to be games where the stands don't look good. Heck, there are "sellouts" of Ti-Cat games and TFC games where the stands don't good with attendances apparently in the 20,000+ range.

    I'm rather impressed that Hearts would sign him to a one year extension.  Dario's contribution to Alloa's survival chances must have raised some eyebrows - especially for a club where he might be the only player on full time wages seeing how Alloa is the only part-time (professional) club in the Championship.

    From a purely business standpoint, I don't think OSEG is much further ahead today in making a potential move to the CPL than they were a year ago.  Obviously deals have been signed with sponsors for what seems like a good amount of money, but a ball has yet to be kicked and they probably have questions/concerns about how all the markets will do in year 2 and 3. 
    Having said that, it doesn't excuse a few of the past proclamations about the CPL.  They should have just kept it in house.

    Couldn't agree more. If anything "The Canadian Way" largely gets in the way when it comes to our soccer. No one wants to see flopping or diving. But I also don't want to see a league full of oversized ADHD-riddled athletes running around like a chicken with their heads cut off simply because they display more "guts".

    Brilliant night tonight at TYC, first class !
    I was there 5 minutes after the door opened and it was PACKED.  
    Ownership did a bang-up job on this one, full credit.  Food, beer, players, mascot, merch, ..........even the wife was happy.
     
    Without a doubt, Valour have the best jerseys, home and away !
