    General Discussion on CMNT

    Have you been paying attention to the national teams that wear Nike? They're easy to spot because they all look exactly the same. Expect that for Canada, as well. That said, I'm sure the money from Nike is much better than from Umbro so if we're going to wear cookie-cutter uniforms we might as well get paid more to do so.

    TFC 2018-2019 Off-season

    Keep in mind that TFC gets extra GAM in 2019 for missing the previous playoffs and for making the CCL, so perhaps that's why management isn't too worried about DeLeon's one-year cap hit.

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    Not that I'm aware of. EDIT: I just took a look and there was a Luca Ricci that was loaned to Phoenix earlier this year, so it appears that you were correct.

    That's Alessandro Riggi.

    Source? As far as I know, the Fury have never slagged the CPL publicly, nor lied about their reasoning to not join. I'd be happy to be proven wrong, but I've seen a ton of conjecture used as fact around here lately. The Fury and CPL clearly don't see eye-to-eye on one or a number of issues. That doesn't make one side evil or morally reprehensible, it's just business. Like most here I hope to see the parties resolve their issues so that the Fury can eventually join the CPL. I just don't see the need to further narratives that may or may not be true.

    I keep reading here that we shouldn't take the Fury's statements at face value, which is a good stance to take. On that same note, are we really willing to take CONCACAF's statement at face value?

    It's been reported that Ottawa has already received sanctioning from the CSA, which was in turn awaiting a USSF rubber stamp before the CSA approaches Concacaf for final approval. From the article (bolding mine): While the CSA would no doubt like to have the CPL as the sole league, it had already approved the Fury's participation in the USL in 2019. But other governing bodies are involved. CSA president Steven Reed said his organization is going through its normal procedure, awaiting approval from the U.S. Soccer Federation — which oversees the USL — for its OK for the Fury and other Canadian teams, like PDL clubs, to play in the U.S. While Goudie said the U.S. Soccer approval on the Fury came Wednesday, Reed said the CSA has yet to get official word of the U.S. green light. Once that comes, the normal Canada Soccer process would be to go to CONCACAF for its approval. But CONCACAF, seemingly willing to play the heavy, has pre-empted that step. "We're surprised because we followed the process," Reed said in an interview, acknowledging the CONCACAF letter was "premature" given the consultation is ongoing. Reed said once Canada Soccer hears the U.S. counterpart has sanctioned the Fury's participation, it would consult with CONCACAF.

    There's no evidence that he "wants" his nephew in the field. When everyone was healthy Zavaleta wasn't a guaranteed starter.

    Which totally makes sense given they are publicly touting new 3-yr contracts for some players and front office staff...

    So CONCACAF couldn't have just said "It's too late to reasonably pull your sanctioning for 2019, but you have a hard deadline of 2020 to decide whether you want to continue as a sanctioned pro club" and gotten the same result?

    I disagree. There doesn't need to be any pain at all. As someone else posted further up, it'll probably play out that Ottawa gets an extension for 2019 and has to decide whether to join CanPL ion 2020 or lose sanctioning from CONCACAF. That's exactly how CONCACAF should've done it from the start, instead of this strange sledgehammer approach. Regardless, the potential of losing a proven club that employs Canadians is not something any of us should be happy about.

    That may be the case, but I'm referring to the posts about how easily the Fury could be replaced, mean nothing, and how their dissolution wouldn't be a loss for Canadian soccer.

    There are way too many people in here all too eager to dance on the grave of a professional soccer club in Canada.
