    General Discussion on CMNT

    I don't think I've seen anyone mention Bryan Crisante?

    Calgary FC launch/2019 offseason thread

    Just had a call from Cavalry sales for season tickets. Told them I couldn't afford them and there wasn't any "buts" which I thought was odd. I hope it's due to a low pressure approach rather than hearing it so often that they just gave up on the "buts".

    I was hoping the signing would justify the high prices for season tickets. Nope.

    You'll get a kick out of it, or lose what's left of your faith in humanity https://www.washingtonpost.com/science/2018/12/05/peta-wants-change-anti-animal-sayings-internet-thinks-theyre-feeding-fed-horse/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.7e15fef97f66

    I think you mean "Feed 2 birds with 1 scone", no?

    You'd be hard pressed to find something that isn't lame on that graphic...

    The real question is how does their defense hold up on 30-second highlight package? My guess, bush league.

    That's what I figured.

    Whelp, my potential 3 season tickets just turned into applying that $50 to singles.

    On the walk into work I was thinking about team numbers issue you posed. \ There was a USport draft this year, but I could see the talent at USport teams opting to try and make a CPL/CPLII team if perusing a professional career is their goal. In 10-15 years wouldn't it make sense to have Men Soccer programs at USport schools go to "club" status and be the foundation for the regional leagues? Just a disclaimer, in my own experience of University Sports there have to be equal men's and women's teams. If there is enough interest in a new men's team (say Rugby) there needs to be equal interest in a women's team as well as enough funding to support 2 new teams. The men's Rugby team can also opt to play "club" rugby against other clubs without being an official USport team, unsure how that funding works though...

    Love the discussion that my little pyramid spurred, lots of great points!! TBF when I was drawing it up, I was convinced that the regional teams wouldn't be able to beat the last place teams in the CPL II. However, if the Morton Tidal Bores™ has beaten the CPL IIs last place team 2-3 years running (after getting through the best of Quebec) but for reasons you've highlighted (finances, stadia, etc) they did not get promoted , I have to believe that someone from Moncton or the Maritimes would get on board.

    This is how I see everything shaking out in light of today's news. In it's infancy, I'd assume they'd be super cognoscente of travel costs for the 2nd division so I see it being 2 separate but equal divisions, each of who's champion would be in a playoff to play last place in the CPL. The feeder leagues would go through a similar process, however, 2 teams would have the opportunity to be promoted.

    My head instantly jumped to the German system where under the 3. Liga it jumps into Regionalliga. This could now be the Ontario's "regionalliga" which could then be leveraged in a pro/rel league once CPL is stable enough to have CPLII and associated regional leagues. This also opens up the ability for an ownership group from say, Mississauga, to purchase North Mississauga SC with the goal of promotion rather than starting from scratch.

    Almost as bad as Henry's howler vs TFC. a Tomori-Henry pairing would be one of the highest scoring CB parings out there!
