  1. Yo Voyageurs !! If you've already contributed... MERCI. If you were waiting until the last minute to show women's soccer some love... we're there. Didn't collect a dime from the first campaign because we didn't reach the goal. 40 hours left in the second try. Game TIME! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cut-2-the-chase/contributions/new
  2. Well, my podcast is all about people involved in soccer. Real questions. Real answers. Mr. Blatter often has interesting things to say when he responds off-the-cuff... surprising statements. It'd be cool to have an authentic chat with the man. I had a 90-minute chat with Andrew Orsatti and Gabriele Marcotti. Both will be trilogies because I can't edit that down... too much good info. But I don't have any space left on SoundCloud sooo..... I'm giving the funding another go. I didn't collect any funds first time around because I chose the FIXED model. This time, I went with the FLEX model. You can even support the campaign with your DEBIT CARD, Credit Card, or PayPal ?? Y'all have already heard the podcast. I got the RSS feed so I can publish on iTunes, and yes Vic, transcripts is a good idea. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cut-2-the-chase/contributions/new Click + give. Thanks guys!
  3. I'm gonna give this crowd funding thing one more try. I'll post the link here tomorrow (Friday). The target remains the same $2,000. I will choose Indiegogo's flex funding model but the pressure to hit the goal is greater because Indiegogo collects TWICE THE FEE if I don't hit or surpass the target. But this attempt will be 15 days, instead of one week. So come on back... support a women's footy podcast that, not-so-secretly, has an emphasis on CANADA. And tell a friend. Thanks Voyageurs.
  4. C'mon boys! 6hours left. $560 needed to cross the finish line. Thanks to everyone who has contributed already. I promise to give Voyageurs a shout out if I get to interview Mr. Blatter in August. But this can't happen without you. Please pitch in. I know women's soccer isn't all that popular of a topic but things will get mighty interesting in the next 18 months and I want to help Canada do this right! http://igg.me/at/Cut2theChase/x
  5. So you've heard the podcast. I applied for the RSS feed from SoundCloud + was granted one last week so now I can create a setup on iTunes. Brilliant, but guess what? I've run out of space on my SoundCloud acct to upload audio... for free. Now I need a bit of help so I'm bringing this crowd funding campaign to your attention. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-soccer-podcast-cut-2-the-chase All the details are there but what I haven't said is that I'm aiming to have a 20-minute chat with Sepp Blatter about women's football. How am I going to manage that? I honestly don't know but THAT is my goal for this podcast in 2014. Is it feasible? We shall see... but not if the podcast dies. If you throw a few pesos at this women's soccer podcast, I will step up my game-- as an interviewer + producer. Perhaps we'll get the chance to hear what Mr. Blatter really thinks about women's football. If you've listened to a few episodes already, I'd love to have your feedback to how I can improve the podcast. https://iwant2work4n...m.com/to/a7FnSz Thanks!

  7. The scandal that rocked the Alberta Soccer Association two years ago came to my attention through the newspaper article that reported that the Bank of Montreal had suspended the ASA's account because they didn't know who was in charge. The slavery going on in Qatar that builds stadiums that may never host a FIFA World Cup is not run by women. The fan recently banned by Villareal for throwing a banana at Dani Alves, as a racist gesture, was a man. The smell of dead fish indeed... The Canadian women's team did more than give 100% on the pitch when the boycotted in February 2011. How awful of them to create a "pooched political cesspool". Clean slate indeed. Get rid of Sinclair and the whole lot!! RUBBISH !! Activism from players who express opposition to fraudulent or racist leaders should be welcomed. Ah but wait... we're talking about challenging / getting rid of a head coach. If you listened closely to the podcast, which I'm sure you did Victor, I said that player activism may bring changes that I don't agree with. The more important result (to me) is that young women realize they can effect change. In this case I understand a few reasons why USSF may have fired Tom Sermanni. If you think Sunil Gulati is the kind of guy who lets Abby Wambach tell him what to do, we don't see the guy who chased down Jurgen Klinsmann in the same light. Dismiss Sermanni or let him stay. Makes no difference to me. But I understand both positions. What matters is the closing-- if USSF finds a great replacement, the #USWNT may win the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. That may be all that's relevant to USSF.
  8. I may have said too much this time boys. Whaddya figure? Let me hear ya. https://soundcloud.com/ingridium40/cut-2-the-chase-extra-time-w-big-d
  9. https://soundcloud.com/ingridium40/cut-2-the-chase-ep-09-herdman?in=ingridium40/sets/c2c Yeah, I know there's a podcast topic somewhere on the discussion board. That's great. I'm a bit of a rogue. Sue me... or maybe just have a listen.
  10. I hear what y'all are saying. Nerea Palacios is Spanish, not Canadian. Apparel designers this good are not a dime a dozen... not at this level. But I can help find a designer who is CDN if that's what you want. If you ever want to work with Nerea, pls don't hesitate to let me know.
  11. OMG, Trillium sometimes I could CHOKE YOU OUT !! If you don't know what Ciara McCormack has done for soccer IN CANADA, then PLEASE SHUT THE PIE HOLE !! How many years has she run the Western Canada Showcase-- a decade perhaps?? Just please.... pipe down about Ciara. And no, running a tourney once a year doesn't make her a genius but her two degrees from Yale sorta HINT AT THAT.
  12. Hesterine de Reus has not been fired http://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/matildas-playing-a-game-in-which-no-one-wins-20140410-zqsuf.html And anyone who believes Lair was not told to "walk the plank" is ___.
  13. Yeah let me guess, you can only talk about women's soccer just so much, eh? You couldn't possibly talk about it EVERY SINGLE TIME. I mean, there's nothing interesting going on, right? LMAO Ok Jeff. I didn't notice the date you posted your comment but seriously there was an expiry date on that? How often do you mention or discuss MEN'S SOCCER in your pod? UGH!! #aneurysm
  14. If it were anybody else, I'd say Jamie's comments sound like someone who wants none of the risk + all of the reward. But this is JAMIE McLEOD we're talking to and about. His position that, as indicated, has been fraught with an overabundance or risk + debt lately. I wasn't being cavalier or facetious when I offered to help. I've lost a fair coin investing in soccer too. It's not fun. You learn from it and move on. If he wants to make this call solo-- he's earned the right to do so. There's no rift here. No beef. If I was disgruntled or irked-- y'all would know. I'm not. I put an idea out there. Jamie responded. It was discussed. I'm cool. Hopefully Voyageurs will be around another 20 yrs and I'll get a nice jersey one day. I ain't sweatin' it. peace + hugs, Ingrid btw. my podcast w/ John Herdman this morning was killah! I'll upload it tmro
  15. Thank you for speaking the truth so plainly... and so eloquently. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you. ~Ingrid
