    I think thats what he is getting at, why dont Vancouver sign Comsia as a HG, and avoid the draft all together. Chapman being a good example of this happening, WC should get complaining to MLS, and sign him, they could use Comsia

    Callum Irving also wasnt claimed by WC as a homegrown after spending time in residency. If it involves MLS it sure to be confusing and complicated.

    I doubt CONCACAF will mess with MLS, ie) the other examples of exceptions/precedence (wales) match up better with the 3 CDN MLS teams situation. Maybe if CPL grows in leaps and bounds over the next 10 years. But who cares what the classification is called, D-1 vs D-2 etc?? CPL to USL appears to be close enough for CONCACAF to call it equivalent. TFC2 dropping to USL2 (or whatever they call it) maybe saved them from being in the same boat as the fury, or maybe they look at "farm team" second squad clubs differently. Its definitely a schmoooozle. I cant imagine anyone is too happy about it. CPL want Ottawa to come over on their own, and Ottawa dont want to be forced into anything. Personally, seeing us Voyageurs tear each other up, Fury fans vs CPL and visa versa really kills my excitement about the way CDN soccer was heading. I dont want the CPL to start under a cloud of legal problems, and I dont want Ottawa fans cursing the CPL.

    Look at pointy football or a league like EPL? Where does the money come from? Not from asses in seats, its broadcasting rights, TV deals.A couple years ago the NFL teams split 6billion dollars from TV. I saw a article that said EPL a few years back made more than twice the money on broadcasting than matchday revenue. If another world cup in the USA can stimulate some sort of increase in broadcasting revenue for MLS, TFC could grow their revenue by quite a bit. In 2014 MLS TV rights tripled to 90 million and all the crazy DP, GAM, TAM, BS we see now.

    This is CONCACAF so nothing would surprise me.

    I have to point out some baloney in that Jacubek interview. He says at the end of the interview the Fury had a record for playing the most canadians. Not sure what number he is quoting (maybe roster spots?) but TFC2, playing in the same USL in the same year, had a higher % of CDN minutes (from Sandors power rankings). Last year (2017) both VWC2 and TFC2 had more CDN content on the field than Ottawa. Its great that Ottawa has been playing so many CDN (lately), but you cant have your own set of facts. I think Ottawa will (and we need them to) play next summer, and it'll be in the USL (I think all this is just CONCACAF posturing and its more about where Ottawa is going to play in the future, way too late to say No for 2019), but I also think eventually they'll join the CPL. Unless this sort of squabbling and fighting sink the whole thing. Just when I was getting excited about first season.

    Kofi Opare is available in the re-entry draft. He has to be better than someone's nephew and he would be half the price.

    When he was complaining about the morons on the board, I did think to myself...he's probably talking about nam.

    Did anyone else hear that CPL was telling guys for weeks not to sign because Ottawa wasnt going to be sanctioned?? (In AJ Jakubec interview at tsn) How can the Fury claim to be blind sided when the local tsn guy had heard it??

    TFC 2018-2019 Off-season

    Auro and VDW both played RB last season (is it final that Auro wont be back?). If you move VDW to CB, then you need someone to fill in at RB. Stealing peter to pay paul. If they are going to use VDW at CB, then you need another fullback. They need to bring in someone, defense was the biggest problem.

    How can they not add a CB?? Last year when Moor, Mavinga etc were all injured at the same time the hind site guys were whining that they should have seen it coming, should have had another starting CB etc. How can they not beef up the CB spot again this year?? Mavinga doesnt seem to be very durable, Moor is just another year older (i thought he might retire). I dont think you can bet on those 2 being much more healthier this year. Zav and Hagglund are decent salary cap league squad fillers but not starters. They need to do something to strengthen the back line as it was the big problem last year.

    Danto and Musse are off to WPG?? Is that just a educated guess?
