  1. tbf to them he likely asked for his released when it became clear he wasn't seen as starting xi there. guy probably wants to play.

    i don't think this is why. It's preseason and people generally accept that their teams are trying things and don't care if the lose. If the CSA was trying to protect the CPL, then the Cavalry/Whitecaps u23 game would not have happened.

    Some OKC Energy sounds totally awesome to me right now. I just picture its advertising featuring the Flaming Lips rocking out at some festival before Wayne Coyne takes a moment (while inside his stupid giant ball) to take a sip of OKC Energy before he can bring the audience to life with a rendition of "Race for the Prize" complete with naked women with giant soccer balls on their heads raiding the stage.

    or he's saying there's more to life than soccer including a wonderful day with your family

    i think the caps is separate for his pfc salary. i think they can but it could still be like $75k against the cap. it's unlikely they're getting 100% or maybe even 50% relief

    same but i can't picture them being totally off the hook for his salary which (i assume) is six figures

    cash? i wonder how tight stuff is for them with no mdj
  10. Be funny if it was CBC News Net and they apply the Radio 2 model to News Net and make it sports/music videos from like 12-12 and don't cover any major news events.
  11. i suspect media pro came somewhat late (like december) and threw off some early plans

    cash might not be trading hands between the league, clubs and sponsors. for example westjet would likely be providing a discount but teams using them would still have to pay for services. nike and marcon are also big questions about whether they're paying the league or just providing goods. given that we're 2 weeks from kick off and some teams are reporting low season ticket sales and no one knows what the story with onesoccer is, i'd say there's a good chance the league loses money this year (the league is still stable)

    i don't think their in the black. all reports have said they know they're going to lose money. even with partnerships, it's very likely the league doesn't break even on operating costs.
  14. likely but tbh i wouldn't mind wednesday night
  15. $5 a month for a game or 2 (if lucky) a month from November to March is high, even with bonus content, curious if we see some kind of indoor league start-up for the winter or more friendly events (like a Canada Cup) pops up. Also still think it's possible One Soccer isn't exclusively Canadian soccer, there's still some solid leagues that would get attention in Canada that are without a broadcaster.

    VW are slowly plotting a global takeover with this player index award. First MLS, then CPL, next stop the World

    If you're sponsoring it in one league why not another.

    So 20 days away...Which game do you guys think will have a higher attendance: York 9 vs Forge or TFC vs Timbres? Key factors: TFC's stadium size, the "free tickets" for Forge-York 9, historic vs standard league game
  20. forge feels like the most commanding uniform in the entire. it's simple but the use of orange and grey is very strong, it allows the colours to pop and stand out instead of a design (it's possibly the strongest use of colour in the league, sorry pfc). it's not fancy but it dominates in a way others don't and it tells a story, paints a picture, knows who it is. you have zero reason to be jealous of any other team. also embrace the fire and the steel because it's metal as fuck and this league needs character
  21. not really, radio usually targets drivers so the app wouldn't really take a hit.
  22. i mean the combo is a proven one that isn't overly used. it's popular in some new age, hip hop, and some lgbtq circles and of course the hornets in basketball. i do think they misused it in the kit by going too simple and passive but they do have potential to grow. i'd like to see it with more of a fade with both together maybe
  23. york 9 home. cavs have the best combo. also looking at the poll, pfc stans is wack
  24. it's a changing game . ads are becoming more common (look at podcasting), the fee thing is true but more and more are pushing 1 year commitments (dazn, shudder). regarding channels tv is likely going to shift to more a la carte model while streaming is becoming more fractured. popular stuff on one service (netflix) is being moved out soon (friends, family guy, marvel, dr who) is being shifted to several new services. it's gonna be interesting to see what happens
