    Would it have killed them to put "Position" on the same angle as Hometown and Age?? 😟

    The three MLS teams fit the criteria because, arbitrary division designations aside, the level of play between MLS & CPL/USL will be vastly different, likely forever. The same cannot be said for the difference between CPL & USL - a difference which (IMO) will favour USL in the initial years, though the difference will likely not be vast (or in the language of the day, exceptional). Tying MLS & CPL together because they're both Division 1 leagues is a false equivalency; the phrase refers to a position on a pyramid, not necessarily a level of play. That level of play is the exceptional circumstance that keeps (and should keep) the MLS teams separate. That said, completely fair point on the second sentence - there's been some massive failures in communication here, and I'm not convinced it's unintentional.

    I think we all know that it's sitting in someone's junk mail folder somewhere.

    Yeah, this part makes the whole scenario implausible. We all know that cable fees will triple by 2026.

    I don't think we should assume that it exclusively boils down to money; there may have been a legitimate desire to maintain a level of quality that they didn't feel (rightly or wrongly) that the CPL would let them attain. We don't necessarily need to assume the best intentions, but we shouldn't straight to the worst intentions either.

    There were some high-priced players on loan from Montreal who were being paid by Montreal though, correct? That could drag the "average" up quite substantially. $65k x 22 players = $1.43m, for those keeping track.

    TFC no longer has a team in L1O for this upcoming season; they transferred to some US development league.

    Time for Ottawa to call themselves a reserve club of Montreal.

    What country would the case even be held in?

    So it's Vic tossing his weight around?

    Makes me wonder what would happen to existing contracts if OFFC gets blocked from playing.

    I didn't realise that concacaf had this power, I thought it was just the CSA.

    Honestly, the most interesting part about that tweet for me is "will very likely be". The season's only four months away; you'd think they'd know what the salary cap "will definitely be" by this point.

    He lit up the scoreboard while playing for Aurora, of all places. If he can routinely get goals while playing on one of the worst teams in the league, he can't be that bad.
