    St. John's CPL

    How much would a majority share in 'Q' team cost?

    St. John's CPL

    Following the Ottawa model I see.... /s It's going to be interesting to see how the league unfolds and how some of the smaller markets like Victoria and Halifax do and ultimately how flexible the league is in accommodating both big and small markets.

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    JESUS CHRIST DOES ANYONE REALLY SEEM THAT BOTHERED BY THIS? EVERYONE HERE IS RATIONAL. LOOK, DAVIES MAY OR MAY NOT BE THE SECOND COMING...WHO KNOWS...I THINK IT'S A 99% CHANCE. BUT EVERYONE HERE IS TOTALLY RELAXED.

    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    haha fair enough. Smart marketing/propaganda if that's the case.

    How reliable is this twitter account? Anybody can make shit up and stick "Rumour" on it. It just seems coincidental that this comes a day after people on here were speculating why he hasn't been picked up by a CPL team yet..

    Yeah it's just weird to me considering he has continued playing in all these different places but didn't end up in MLS...yet could end up in CPL. I remember him being linked to TFC at one point.

    Not sure what his recent salary levels were but I honestly don't see how the CPL team would be able to offer a high enough salary for him to consider it. Has anybody figured out the approximate upper limit a player could make in CPL? 80K, 100K? That would stretch the rest of team pretty thin no? I mean I guess there is there is the possibility it's less about the salary at this point and more about a place where he'd rather live and play.

    CPL new teams speculation

    Brazil has 200M people with most of the population concentration in the east...Russia 140M people and most of the population in is the west. Canada is much more spread out with less overall population. Australia is the only real comparable one imo. And from what I remember even a lot of their teams in the first divsion are clustered in the large metro areas. This is a way to reduce travel costs. I think a second tier in Canada would have to be regionalized.

    Valour FC - Launch / 2019 Pre-Season

    Mid-week matches are probably inevitable...still think it be better to limit them to July and August.

    St. John's CPL

    According to Google... the owner (Irwin Simon) networth is around $35M. Which is rich...but maybe not piss-it-away-on-multiple-sports-teams rich.... Them not commenting publicly doesn't really necessarily mean anything though...they could still talking to the league and not talking publicly. Yeah it's going to be interesting to see if anything happens though. My gut feeling is that the window of opportunity of St John's getting a CPL team is going to hinge on this particular ownership group getting a team in the next couple of years....otherwise it fades significantly.

    St. John's CPL

    So I'm curious as to how serious the potential owners are about bringing a potential CPL team here. The basketball team team they currently own the St John's Edge(NBL Canada) had an average attendance of 3400 last year. This year the avg attendance is nearly 4000. It went up. I'd have to think this would give them more confidence to proceed not less. But who knows.

    Curious about Babouli...I assumed he would have been an automatic for going to CPL...

    Cyle Larin

    Even with Google translate those articles are difficult to understand.. That being said I think it would be better for him to move to a smaller club than Besiktas.

    CPL Season Schedule

    This is what I was thinking as well. The "spring champion" could completely bomb the fall season yet still be in a final? It would be kinda anti-climatic.
