    Christine Sinclair calls out CSA

    The original mentioned both but due to timing (the first tweet was made after the semis were done) it's not insane to say it was mainly about the final. We've also mainly been talking the final here so I'm going to ignore the semi cause I think most agree it wasn't going to draw big TV numbers. Doyle's kind of just trying to stir the pot and probably should be the target of criticism rather than the WNT players, who we all agree have a point, because he's actually making the MNT a vampire of sorts rather than going after the outside bodies as the player have.

    Def was a factor, CSA has been pretty good recently about home games being televised but this fell out of their hands. Curious what the deal with OZ is and how much OZ is getting.

    Dude we're not talking about the Panama game right, we're talking solely the final which also was a CUP game. I agree the 7-0 was of minimal casual interest but the final likely would have been.

    the complaints are not about the mnt itself but about media and promotion and by o.p.'s own admission are valid complaints. neither of the wnt players has gone after the mnt in either post. yes they are using them as an example, because same sport, but they're not complaining about the them, they're complaining that a game of great stakes was mishandled and somewhat ignored in their own country which was due to by bodies that are not the mnt. they're also as aware, as we are, that the mnt getting on tv and doing well is good for the sport for both genders. to say they do not or imply that they do not want success for the men's program makes little actual sense because it does a degree of harm to their program. i don't know why people with valid complaints about the csa, concacaf and mass canadian media are being treated like an enemy.

    you can be happy for a friend while being upset about matters related to yourself.

    Here you finally have a fair point and to give an answer TSN had That's Hockey and Broncos vs. Cardinals on both TSN 1 and 5 from like 7 to 11:30. While we can all mostly agree NFL is the bigger draw, there was room for the game but TSN and CONCACAF didn't come to terms on the game. I'm unsure if the game was shown on US TV. I'm also sure the women are fine and more than likely pleased with the men's game being on TV.

    you're ignoring so many facts like that the two games that were not televised were both controlled by outside parties and were not of equal weight at all. you're equal claim is fairly weak here. i'd also add that if the women get all the attention, as you claim, then why didn't any of these games end up on tv while all the gold cup games did? there are valid points to the women's complaints (which you know is fucking true) and you also know this thread is a void as a result and makes these forums look stupid.

    i edited for that, just before you posted, but you listed them as complaining about the csa again and this would not be a complaint about the csa at all but concacaf and maybe ussf with regards to distribution rights in canada as they were in charge of them. but again move on from this dumb shit.

    @Keegan dude move on. the complaint here isn't about the csa but concacaf and canadian major media

    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    https://newsday.co.tt/2018/10/18/coach-hart-canadian-league-ideal-for-tt-players/ “I think it’s important for everyone to understand that CPL is a brand new league and just judging from the try-outs (CPL got game trails) that we have been having, they are many players from the Caribbean and Latin America that have been trying out”, said Hart.

    this actually has me curious about the pay of these players. it kind of has the look of a summer job so am curious if they'll be paid at a similar rate of other players or if there will be some kind of special deal regarding them and pay. no matter what big thumbs up. finally making serious use of one of our biggest player pools.

    Local affiliates?

    in terms of documented evidence, there is one demo list for a canadian team. it estimates 40% of those at tfc games are women http://www.coremedia.ca/tfc/demographics the number is slightly better than the average of 33% of fans being female for mls. it's safe to say from that that there is some kind of interest from women into the men's game in canada unless you want to just brush that off as nothing. i do think the csa did a fan survey a year or so ago which would likely have more detail but has not been released.

    yea there's a crossover of mnt and wnt fans. we all know there is. it doesn't show.

    That part was more about women in general on these forums and the suspected lack there of which is an issue if you're looking to grow.
