    RS got a reaction from masster in York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread   
    Thankfully I don't measure the entirety of world football fandom against the Kop. There are several ways to support. Liverpool is not the be-all and end-all.
    You said flags and banners should only be out pre-match, which may be fine for you, but having them out during the game has proven to work right here in Canada (with this very group). There's a middle ground between waving flags all game long and only using them before the match has started. I'm not surprised that the nuance is lost on you, though.

    Who cares why they are there?  This is a juvenile response that is the equivalent of a having a wank on a message board.
     
    Wank in a stadium with a flag > wank on a messageboard anyday.

    This is a discussion forum. Simply asking legitimate questions about the challenges that will face the league doesn't mean that people want to see it fail.

    RS reacted to Kent in 2019 CONCACAF U17 Championship   
    The one thing I don't get about the theory of reporters fearing losing their access is this. There are only like a half dozen reporters that actually do any semblance of reporting on the national team. Is the CSA really going to spitefully cut any of them out of the loop because they ask why a player isn't in a camp?
    I imagine it has more to do with the reporters not being as obsessed as us and not being aware of guys like Flores. They probably don't know the U17 player pool, so they aren't going to ask questions. They do on occasion ask about notable omissions for the men's team. It's like if I listed my 5 best friends on here, you aren't going to ask me about any omissions. Really? X is a better friend to you than Y? I suppose the reporters could more generally question the lack of players from outside the MLS academies.
    P.S. For what it's worth, someone mentioned Jonathan David as a player not from an MLS academy. It was a bad example though since he actually did play for the U17 team despite not being with an MLS academy.

    Sure, and Juventus got their famous shirts from Notts County but no one thinks of the lower-league English team when they see black and white stripes on a soccer jersey.

    RS got a reaction from Watchmen in CPL TV Contract   
    But that's not just for the US and Canada. That cost is spread out over several countries worldwide.
    Regardless, NFL and Champions League are bigger drivers for subscriptions than boxing/MMA in Canada, and I'd be willing to bet EPL will be as well. So Meltzer's numbers are missing a huge chunk of the subscriber base.
    EPL is just the latest in a growing line of big European soccer rights they've gobbled up. It doesn't really have too much to do with the NFL off-season "drought" but is another step toward being the main home of soccer in Canada.

    There's only one "pack" for DAZN. You either get everything or nothing, like Netflix or Prime.
    As of right now, DAZN has Champions League, Europa League, Serie A, La Liga, Ligue 1, J1 and J2, AFC Champions League, Copa Libertadores, English League Cup, some EFL Championship and other random soccer.
    Non soccer includes NFL, FIBA, Bellator, lots of rugby, assorted boxing, some NCAA stuff, WTA, some ATP, etc.
