    Rocket Robin got a reaction from Bison44 in CPL General   
    Very good article on ten more prospects from League 1 Ontario who would be good signings for the CPL. Story is from the L1O site but I'd agree having seen these players over the years.   https://www.league1ontario.com/news_article/show/1009254

    My take on the @York9FC kit reveal in Newmarket.  Also includes my interview with Emilio Estevez Tsao and I ask the elephant in the room question (or should I say Mighty Ducks?) about having a movie star name. pics and sound bytes of the presentation included.   Also who wears each # kit.

    Rocket Robin got a reaction from Billy Bishop in CPL General   
    I remember on here maybe 300 pages ago that people didn't like the CPL team names chosen neither.  
    Ooh York 9 FC ?   Aren't there eleven on a team?  They have to have Toronto in their name etc.  
    Every team choosing a name had it's detractors...now with two days to go those same people are lining up for kits!

    Ben Z answered some questions of mine at the York 9 FC kit reveal Thursday night about the away game against Forge FC.
    I can see my season's tickets for York 9 on the CPL app but not the away game.   Ben said that's because the tickets (expecting 1200 travelling supporters! wow!) will be distributed when you get on the bus.  
    For those who make it to the stadium on their own, there will be a York 9 booth in the parking lot where we will be able to pick up our tickets (our names will be on a list).  My advice....better bring ID.  
    There will also be four pick up spots for the buses including Pioneer Village subway station.  Drivers will be able to park at the 'shopping mall' stop pick ups without worry of being towed. When he said the names of the pick up points will be on the website tomorrow, I stopped writing them down.  Pioneer Village TTC from what I've seen has nowhere to park.

    At the York 9 FC reveal owner Preban Ganzhorn answered me that 'One Soccer' is the content provider.  All games are on that app.  
    He says there will also be over the air broadcasts (but he wouldn't say who/how many will be providing those). 
    He also said there will be better coverage right away on L1O games.  I'm used to watching camera on a pole production and doubted there'd be eight camera angles for a crowd of 50 in attendance...maybe once a week? I said...We left it at that.

    Novak the first player signed from Oakville Blue Devils.  Golden Boot winner.  One of about half a dozen I think could have made a CPL roster.   
    Cela played for Sigma last year but was with TFC Academy at least until 2016.

    We're pleased to invite you to our Inaugural Season Kit Launch Party.   Please join us with your friends and family to witness a historic night.   Please click on the image above to RSVP by Monday, April 2 @12 pm Sharp. *Registration is required for attendance. Limited Capacity.   York 9 Football Club info@York9Football.Club Canadian Premier League     …...……………………...…………………………………………...………...…………...………......……………………...………………………………………………. And that arrived in my in box at 3:23pm on Monday April 1st (oh is that the joke?) the 2nd is actually Tuesday!   Or is the joke that registration is already over!  I tried and it received an automated 'we'll be contacting you'. Hopefully they mean register by Tuesday April 2nd at noon and the e-mail was just prepared by the person who prepared the design of thousands of team postcards of the York 9 FC home matches schedule for Alumni Field (OK I give them the stadium switch may have been unknown at the time) but their first game against Blainville listed as 'Saturday May 22 Time TBD' and then had the Saturday Sharpied out because that is a Wednesday!

    This was something like their eighth pub night.  
    I've been to the one's at Shoeless Joe's in Woodbridge January 30th (the first time the bus reveal was announced), Archibald's in Richmond Hill on February 13th which had been rescheduled from the road closing blizzard the week before,  and the Unionville Arms Pub & Grill in Unionville on February 18th.   
    Some of them were further afield in the nine counties.  The Keenan's one was the only one (can't find the announcements anymore) that I saw wasn't in the strict political boundaries of the region.   
    (self promotion alert)  You can read about those three I mention by paging back on this forum or linking directly to my site.

    CPL teams (well York 9 is for sure) leaving for 10 days in Dominican Republic on Friday April 5th.  York 9 will play three games.  None of the CPL teams will play each other during that time.  Learned all this at the Pub Night in Brampton.  I should have a post link up on the York 9 sub board tomorrow night (or Wednesday at the latest) all going well.
