    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    Roger Thompson was a pretty good prospect. I always thought he'd go on to be better things and play for the MNT.

    There is no accomodation provided in an MLS contract, but Greg Kerfoot provides free/subsidized rent to Whitecaps players in need. I'm sure each club will sort out something for out-of-town players.

    Ottawa CPL Club

    Haha. Carl Haworth and Chris Mannella will totally dominate. Good one.

    Possible CPL Salary Cap Discussion

    Stadiums (IG, Tim's, hopefully Ottawa), web site, app, kits, quality of backroom staff all far superior.

    Possible CPL Salary Cap Discussion

    I think "the cap" is a bit of a red herring. We're paying professional ticket prices for the facilities, the app, the marketing, and hopefully the streaming service. These things are well beyond USL. $29K salaries in 2019 is fine because the whole point of this league is to catch players who have fallen through the cracks. This salary level will go up once the cap ex is proved sustainable. And it will be a great place to blood the 16-19 year olds who are off to better things.

    Calgary launch/2019 offseason thread

    Is Wheeldon a good manager? He has this Robert Carlyle, drunken pirate look going that for some reason makes me wonder.

    CPL General

    I'd add that one fault of MLS is signing lots of players who can't speak English. CPL will want all their guys to get out in the media and community as much as possible.

    So no fixed number mandated by the league? That would be so continental!

    That would be an impressive signing, beyond what I would have expected for international quality.

    CPL TV Contract

    I mean Sportsnet did pay like $500m for NHL. I'm thinking CPL could be had for less. Could be worth a roll of the dice.

    Love hearing these names that were on the fringes of the MLS system who would have disappeared without this league. Makes me want to embrace a <$1m salary cap for what it is.

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    If you look at things from a developmental perspective, my sense is that the internationals should be about upper USL quality to push the lower end USL level Canadians to get better -without totally dominating. I suspect Adjei is just a one-off because he played in League 1, similar to the foreign guys taken in the U-Sports draft.

    Draft is probably a bad word and not mutually exclusive to what Duane says here. I thought they had some sort of allocation (another bad word)/distribution system for the domestic players to start with a level playing field in year 1.

    ^Isn't this contrary to a statement on the Valour website a few weeks (months?) back?

    I believe he was already in Canada anyway, playing League 1.
