    I've lurked the forums since 2008, joined in 2011 and it has been a consistent part of my everyday life. Again I'll level with you..... You named people that I have no idea about. I asked this question before, and now have got names that it seems like your just listing vs it being official. Whether true or not, there isn't a place on the site that makes any mention of this stuff. As far as the merchandising goes, I've given my opinion on this multiple times. But I'll give it again. It's straight up not appealing to the generation we should be targeting. You mentioned 2018 sales, which should show you a trend in how in how its be marketed or say something about the product itself. Especially if it's been in cycle for a long time. I want to rep, I want to support, I want to show it to the soccer community I'm strongly around but I know the perception I would get.... Nor do I want another house shirt. The ticketing stuff, you're taking me cynical if you think that I'm suggesting a volunteer do those things that are so complex. All I'm saying is you can't do it all - but a team of volunteers can help. All I see is @socceronly starts all the decision making threads. And you may consult with other people, but who are they for everyone to know, who are they to be a liason for yourself when someone wants to put in a TIFO idea, shirt idea, website idea etc. I feel like I'm using a megaphone in an empty room, but I know I'm not the only one.... Or maybe they see the thevoyageurs.org as simply just a forum.

    @shermanator @Obinna Thank you guys for echoing the same sentiment I feel and share. I'm sure there are many others. I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it until I see some kinda of change in regard to the organization/hierarchy. (Apparently it should be happening soon) One man simply can't do it all. All I see is one man organizing the away games, one man organizing merchandising, one man moderating the forum, one man adminning the website, one man liaising with the CSA, one man organizing TIFOs, one man organizing booths, one man ultimately making decisions for an "organization" that is suppose to be a for Canadian national team fans and future supporters. TBH I feel that this is a one man's business where I'm only considered a customer too when I want to be a partner. And I'll say this....it doesn't have to be me involved...my feelings aren't weak. I just want to know there is a team making decisions vs one man.

    Goal keeping was not much goal keeping... They looked like easy saves. I get why Mexico has high numbers (triple digits) like that because those players are likely academy players. What I don't get is how they get to 300.

    Christine Sinclair calls out CSA

    no one wants to say what it really is. The mens game is and has always been more important in the local, national, and global perspective. Equality in sports comes down to the comparison of Quality. The same debates are made about the USMNT vs the USWNT, but the reality is neglected or "politically correctly" dealt with.

    Like I said...there are a lot of better players who are even younger than him that can be used to fill out these teams. That's not including the several expats that have professional experience, that may be looking to come home. I don't want to seem like a know it all, but I've played with and against a lot of these players. Some are overrated, some are underrated, some aren't even noticed.

    CNL - Canada vs Dominica - October 16th Toronto

    yea he'll easily get rounded or paced... I'm clearly part of that camp. He's had way too many opportunities to impress, and really hasn't at all in multiple positions. I used to think of Piette in this same fashion but have changed my tune based on seeing what his actual position is. Things change, so it wouldn't hurt seeing him again as age and "experience" is on his side. As for Hainualt, if he can't beat out Vitoria, Jackovic or Edgar....his time is up.

    Plain and simple there are better players. He's only 3 years younger than me, and I played against him a few times and wasn't impressed by the hype. So if he's good enough then maybe I should reconsider having a lil short pro career too.

    Price is 20 dollars more from this company I've worked with multiple times. www.Expandpromotions.ca Could be, I haven't experienced wind issues with these.... But I haven't experienced these on a windy day. Aren't these displays typically used inside the stadium or inside a building?

    New shirt - Ship Of Fools

    I think I was misunderstood. I'm not talking about getting branded clothes, like Nike, Umbro, Adidas etc. I give two shits about something being designer brand... If it looks good, it looks good. Im simply talking the design. I'm talking about $25 tees, where you can afford to run a batch of let's say a hundred, and it will be desirable as more people get exposed to it. "hey where'd you get that shirt? It's a Vs, shirt order it here" type conversations. To me there shouldn't even be a difference between kids shirts and adult shirts. I could be wrong, but is there a demand for that? I have some examples that I've been putting together, for reference. Because I personally hate giving suggestions without tangible or visible actions. Will post later.

    Forge FC (Hamilton) launch/2019 offseason thread

    This....there's gotta be some conflict of interest. Doesn't Hamilton plan on having their own academy? To me, it would make more sense to work with or acquire one of the local youth clubs like Mount Hamilton.

    what about roll up display signs.

    New shirt - Ship Of Fools

    I'll be the first to say these remind me of gift shop store shirts you would see in any major Canadian city hotel, or like the ones you would see in Niagra Falls. I think these shirt/sweater designs have to be more strategically trendy, where it's worth more than supporting towards whatever the proceeds go to. They have to have style, swag - you can wear it on a night out were friends will ask "what kind of shirt is that". The memorabilia have to be something that could be branded to the masses or better yet the millennials. But this is just my opinion, and like ass holes everyone's got em.
