    CONCACAF is very unlikely to care about that. Bottom line is that they are In USL Championship and a Canadian alternative exists. TFC deals wouldn't matter, nor does it qualify them under "Exceptional circumstances"
  2. Sounds like the old narrative of trying to push their agenda into the league.. putting a team with young players under contract with TFC. Oh well... the league won't accept that or should they
  3. Wage is one thing, but teams aren't giving away players for peanuts. Transfer fees remains high.
  4. Or the most likely answer... they want to be Chelsea
  5. Lol! Why are you doing this to me? I thought you'd like what I wrote, yet you're talking MLS academy prospect in CPL. If they are smart (pretty sure they are), they would find a way to avoid that. By cutting out Kilmer Sports and having Rogers and Bell creating a separate entity to run the CPL side 100% independently from TFC is the only course of action here. Meaning, it wouldn't be about the CPL side waiting to get TFC prospect at the transfer window. They would run completely separately with CPL having a massive say / screening of who would run it...someone who's all in in CPL and had little to no prior history or affiliation with MLS or TFC. TFC prospect could find their way onto that team, but only if whoever runs it sees it as a plus for his team, not because he's helping out TFC It goes much farther than just rebranding. Can't see CPL wanting any less than this.
  6. That's starting to make some sense. That's a massive difference than the 1st pitch of dumping TFC III... later corrected to TFC II MLSE major stakeholders are Bell and Rogers. If CPL can put in a contract that MLSE must have an independent manager for the CPL side and that TFC has ZERO say, it can work. Bell & Rogers just wants profits, they likely don't give a crap about a "preference" between CPL and MLS as long as it makes money and increase value for them. That would also increase the likelihood of seeing CPL on TV as both shareholder will want their property on TV. That's a HUGE difference here. ***Add: CPL could insist that Bell and Rogers be the sole owners leaving Kilmer Sports out of it under a new company created for the CPL team only to avoid conflict of interest. If that's the case. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ***Also have to think that the media deal and the quality of the production had a huge effect in getting the telecoms attention. That's more content for their plateform and more opportunity to promote themselves via the league...coast to coast. This is 100% a business decision, not a sport decision like the 1st pitch. So start speculating Where? Sharing BMO? Revamped Varsity, Downtown Toronto? York University once York 9 leaves? Downsview Park, North York team? London?
  7. I can't see the league agreeing to this hence negotiations... they didn't agree to that before, can't see them agree to this now TFC as a minority owner makes the most sense to me
  8. This midfield can compete in CONCACAF. We have the Forwards (Millar, Cavallini, David, Larin) We have the keeper (Borjan, hoping Crepeau dominates in Vancouver) Next task --> Defense!
  9. Someone draft our best starting XI and subs at one!!!!
  10. FC Edmonton is pleased to announce the club has signed international midfielder James Marcelin and international fullback Jeannot Esua to contracts, as the Eddies continue to build their roster ahead of the inaugural Canadian Premier League season. Both signings are pending International Transfer Certificate approval. Marcelin, 32, has played the entirety of his professional career in North America and the Caribbean, including 39 appearances with Portland Timbers and FC Dallas of Major League Soccer. Marcelin also has 33 caps for Haiti, scoring five goals, including one against Brazil at the 2016 Copa America – the team’s first ever goal against the South American giants. Esua, 22, developed in the Rainbow FC Academy in Cameroon, before signing his first professional contract with Orange County SC of the United Soccer League in 2017. Esua made 12 appearances in all competitions with OCSC, scoring one goal. He returned to Cameroon for the 2018 season.
  11. A great way to ensure victory over AS Blainville, sign their best players

    This is the part that frustrates me with Fury fans. CONCACAF bullied the Fury not CPL. CPL wanted them in at launch and practically let them have whatever they wanted for the 1st season. But Fury fans like Fanatic, JDG and you go on social medias and dump on CPL directly or passive-aggressively over their current predicament by being negative about the league.This is where the sympathy for the Fury and their mouthpiece go flying out the window. They have the right to complain about what happened but leave CPL out of it. EVERYONE here recognize the Fury contribution to Canadian Soccer. However, it isn't enough and status quo hasn't produce results, hence the need of the CPL which should not be seen as a mean to dismiss what the Fury has done. Keep this up and the hate towards the Fury will increase so I suggest that you pass that on to whoever your "sources" are...

    Not only does this put the 3 Canadian teams at a massive disadvantage, it will hurt the USMNT over time if the USSF does nothing. That less minutes for Americans who will be relegated to USL or MLS bench while making the other nations better. Good for us I guess

    This is pretty self-explanatory and was raised numerous times by TVA Sports journalists to Don Garber who pretty much dismissed his worries Samuel Piette's reaction

    we shall see, Fury has no case in CAS, if they are foolish enough to pursue that.

    I love how some Fury hardcore don't understand how this works No USL isn't booting them out but wouldn't loose sleep over them being gone CONCACAF will absolutely deny 2020 sanctioning. The exceptional clause does not apply and this time, the "short notice" excuse won't apply. You need to stop thinking that they are bigger than FIFA Hey, who needs extra cash from a media company for the next 10 years? Granted that the media deal was not on the table when they had to make a decision last fall, but now... they'd be foolish to not reconsider and put JDG's mouth on a leash

    That's totally fine and I actually do respect that, but their days in USL are numbered
