    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    Hadn’t read yours before posting basically the same thing 😕

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    That’s the beauty of the Earth being round (sorry Kyrie Irving et al) it’s both East and West of here, it’s just a question of which is the shortest route.

    Ottawa CPL Club

    Loyalty is admirable, even if I disagree with his sentiments, I respect his loyalty to his employers.

    I hope so!

    CPL Power Rankings

    It’s so tough to say at this point. I think just based on my gut that Hamilton will be good, Edmonton too because they’ve got institutional structure and the know-how of experience being that they predate this league. I’m hoping that York 9 will be good because it’s now my club! I also like Aparicio and Kyle Porter a lot. If they get O’Dea as rumored... could be very interesting. So, yeah, I have no idea at this point!

    CPL TV Contract

    I think a TSN deal would be a dream come true. I agree that it is possible, but I’m trying to tamp down my expectations a bit.

    CPL TV Contract

    What I’m saying is that I think it might be 1 game of the week on national TV, every local in-market game on a local channel and the app, and out of market games only on the app. Yes, their app! Who cares that it’s downloaded only a few times as of today? It’s a good app, and if it streams games I’d bet that it’ll get downloaded thousands of times more. For the record, I’d prefer an only TV deal. I don’t expect it though. The worst case scenario in my opinion is DAZN or the like. Since they acquired the Champions League I haven’t seen more than a game or two at my brother’s house, and nobody in my circle of friends has either, and we all used to watch it regularly. It’s as if the CL has disappeared from the public sphere altogether. I used to hear casual fans talk about it, not anymore! If CPL winds up on DAZN or something similar, I fear that it too will disappear. It’ll never reach a single casual fan that way.

    CPL TV Contract

    At this point I’d be surprised if they didn’t already have some sort of deal or are at least in the advanced stages of negotiations at this point. Back in September when I spoke to a club rep, I was told that while he couldn’t reveal details due to confidentiality, they would ‘be happy with a deal involving some games on TV and others streamed somewhere, possibly the app’

    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    I’m on it. It’s not bad all around, I like the points feature... but I haven’t cashed mine in yet, I’m waiting for a big ticket item!

    Will the CPL have VAR? Should it?

    True. That may be the deciding factor!

    Will the CPL have VAR? Should it?

    That makes sense, if they’re going to do it at all, best to start with it. Surely they’ve decided by now whether they’ll use it, I wonder when they’ll be kind enough to let us know!

    Will the CPL have VAR? Should it?

    I’m not sure if this has already been addressed, but I can’t think of it off hand, has there been any indication as to whether the CPL will use VAR? I have mixed feelings on the matter... on paper VAR seems like a decent idea, but I’ve seen enough random calls or non-calls by VAR to know that it’s far from the perfect solution it was billed as. I’ve almost come to think that it’s basically adding just another pointless level of human error to the mix. Thoughts?

    Hope not.

    Will the CPL have a Chivas?

    Yeah, I’m still a TFC fan, but having grown up in York Region, and living there again now, York 9 FC and the CPL generally, mean a lot more to me than mls does. I’ve bought York 9 seasons and I’ll support them above any other club.

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    I think he’s going to turn out to be a pretty good player for York 9. He’s young, but he’s got some good experience, and he’s good for me in FM19!
