    BrennanFan got a reaction from Diego in We've lost Jarrek! :(   
    Jarrek was not only a longtime Voyageur, he actually ran and funded this very Voyageurs board for years until the keys were given to @socceronly.
    Jarrek was involved in our first ever scarf run and personally gave me my first Vs scarf more than 10 years ago.  He was also an original contributor to the Voyageurs Cup trophy fundraising drive. 
    He leaves behind many friends in the Toronto soccer supporters scene and especially in U-Sector, the supporters group he helped establish.  
    RIP @Jarrek

    Deepest condolences Pawel. 
    Jarrek's legacy in Canadian soccer will truly live on through the iconic Voyageurs scarf he designed back in 2005.

    I agree with SpursFlu about MLS with 1 caveat.  Think back on the 2013 Gold cup.  Osorio and Tiebert both having their break out years, both early 20's.  Both came in having decent MLS seasons and not many CMNT games under their belt.  They both were in the mix and got starts in that Gold cup (even Bekker started).  Flash forward to the situation now, similar level players Edwards and Chapman,  (mid 20's) each with a spot starter with a handful of goals last season in a better MLS than 6 years ago.  BUT neither has much shot at getting into the gold cup games this summer.  Because although MLS has improved our National team has improved at a much faster pace.  Being a fringe MLS guy barely gets you into the conversation now.  You need to be a regular MLS starter playing well (Osorio/MA Kaye/Piette) or above to make the grade.  
    I am a big fan of Tiebert, but recent commitments to (arfield/Hoilet) and the development of younger stars (Davies/David/Millar) has really pushed him out of the national team picture.  No disrespect, its something we are not used to...having a bit of depth and options up front.

    Petrasso ditched TFC while Brennan was the coach of TFC Academy / Reserves / First team assistant.  So maybe theres some hard feelings there.

    There's a good point here.  Perhaps November is too cold in Toronto for the players' liking.  I don't think we would get any kind of cold weather advantage against the Americans and its not like our players are used to the conditions.  Still, I just don't see the players ever opting for a turf field when other options are available.
    Too bad the Whitecaps waterfront stadium was never built.

    Good for you. I have no idea what makes you think I'm a young punk but I'm willing to bet I've supported Canada and Canadian club teams as long as you guys. I also was around for Canada at the World Cup. I've seen Bunbury play for the Hamilton Steelers. I've been to Varsity Stadium to watch the Toronto Blizzard. I saw Maradona play for Napoli in Munich at the Olympiastadion. Still think you have the market cornered on supporter longevity? Blow it out your ass. I also am not so vain as to doubt that there are longer serving Canadian footie supporters. I'm just tired of his constant diatribe. Some tell me I should just put him on my ignore list and I respect that opinion but the thing is...I enjoy telling him off (even though I know he has blocked me lol). It's like flipping someone the bird on the road after they've cut you off...it doesn't accomplish anything but it makes me feel so much better.
