    Thanks for the continued updates. I know all the fine folk over at the NSXI Network love seeing themselves included as journalists in the mod (as you've likely seen from the various excited social media posts).
    Keep up the great work!

    Rintaran reacted to MrsC in CPL tickets   
    Where it gets tricky is if you are buying tickets in multiple CPL cities.  I was very confused at first because I couldn't get any tickets in my Center Circle App.  My Valour account used the same email address as my previous ticketmaster account but it kept telling me I didn't have any tickets.  I kept trying over several days, and then one day it finally asked me if I wanted to link my existing TM account to my Valour account (it turned out the passwords were just slightly different). 
    I still couldn't figure out how to get my tickets that I purchased for the games at Halifax, Pacific and Edmonton though.  When I bought seasons in Halifax, I was told I had to use an email that wasn't already connected to a TM account, so I just assumed I had to use a different email for Pacific.  When I bought the Edmonton tickets, I was running out of email addresses, and I was able to use the same email that I used for Pacific.  
    Eventually I tried changing my 'preferred team' in the app.  When I selected Edmonton, I could then login to my Edmonton ticket manager account and the tickets showed up.  If I change the preferred team to Pacific, I can access my Pacific tickets.  It seems weird that I can't have one preferred team and still see all of my tickets in the ticket area, but it might have worked that way if I used the same email for all. 
    In the end, I have tickets purchased on 3 different emails, and spent several frustrating days trying to figure out how to get all of the tickets on my phone.

    The basics, actual positive/negative, or real science?
    For the basics, use cookies. They're attracted to cookies right? Magnets are attracted to metal the same way. Done!
    For positive/negative, use something you fill at one end, and empty at the other. Place it so the "fill" is at the top, and the "empty" is at the bottom. Magnets are only attracted in one direction, just like this <container> can only be filled from one side. When you try to put magnets together the wrong way, say too positives or two negatives, it'd be like trying to shove food/lego/etc back up from the bottom, you can force it, but generally it's just going to come right back out and separate.
    If you need real science, Magic School Bus it.

    Yeah I’m still waiting to see how this all gets sorted out. It’s a little strange almost two weeks out we don’t have any tv channel pumping up the “first ever game In cpl history”

    We have easy access to Vancouver and high level amateur sport in Victoria. We will make progress as the only professional team in town once the team actually starts to play. This is a pretty cynical town as it is full of politicians.
     
    This is already at least triple, if not quadruple what Highlanders sold for the opening last year. Pretty sure they were in the 500 - 600 range and were doing incredibly well to get that after the problems of the last few years. Mark et al have done a great job and  I think they will find their niche under PFC.

    Not so tiny. Once you get to about #40, you have a 1500-way tie between numerous independent coffee shops with 5-10 people (depending on the season).

    Newfoundland is behind of Saskatchewan in fruit and vegetable consumption. Saskatoon are ahead in the CPL race... But what are they eating in Newfoundland? Beer and fish is not a complete meal!
    Quebec is viable for a CPL franchise, look at the stats for healthy food!

    As a complete aside, that screenshot totally makes it look like the game was played on  FIFA 2019 or something.  Just something about the way the background looks "rendered".

    Yeah, I'm trying to stay positive but there is some tension building.

    Maybe they are opening the grounds so early on the 28th (1:00 pm) so we can bring wrenches and help put it together?

    No VAR for this season, for the following reasons:
    1-Canada only has Drew Fischer to train other refs in how to use VAR--meaning we have virtually nobody.
    2-Even if Drew understood VAR, Canada does not have enough refs to stick a couple in a booth along with the 3-4 on the field.
    3-If we did, the teams in CPL would not want to pay for it
    4-If they chose to pay for it, MediaPro would remind them that they do not have that many cameras available.
    5-If Media Pro could come up with the cameras, the stadiums would remind them the stands are not high or long or complete enough to find a placement for them.
    6-Since no team feels hard done by yet, there is no real demand for it. So all this is moot, and MediaPro is relieved. Passive Canadian soccer journalists will not even remember to cry bloody murder when their team is screwed, since in Canada we've been officially and nauseatingly NICE for 150 years.
    7-Demand for VAR from fans and others ignoring traditional sports journalists will increase over the course of the first season. Wait for the refs to start calling on the basis of longevity of CPL clubs, which seems to be a priority criteria for the CSA. The older the club, the more benefit of the doubt. Demand for VAR will eventually grow from the newer clubs, in the hope of compensating the glut of heritage-based calls. 
    8-Ottawa Fury will demand VAR after a CSA-paid ref screws them out of a Voyageurs Cup win. This will lead to either to i) full roll-out of VAR for all Canadian club competitions: MLS, CPL and V-Cup; or ii) Fury being summarily desanctioned, for complaining too much.
    9-The expert use of VAR in Canada will eventually put the constant MLS botching to shame, and PRO officials will be sent to Canada to train the technology. Canada will lead the world in effective use of VAR and CPL competitions will be considered the international refereeing benchmark.
    10-Point ten is a round number on which to end this nightmare.

    I don't know where you're getting that from. Nationwide, OCTranspo is considered one of the best systems, but also with the most expensive fares. The cost is usually the biggest complaint, sure we grumble when the snowstorms knock the schedules out of whack, but it's pretty efficient otherwise.

    They originally booked the trip based on double occupancy for the 8 teams but with Ottawa dropping out they can’t afford the single supplement occupancy for one. As with all league matters, involvement in this vacation will be determined the most equitable way possible, who entered the league first.

    There is a way to have a second team in the Ottawa area at this early stage, but it means having the team in Gatineau and building off the inherent rivalry between the two sides of the river / two provinces. I can't see two teams on the Ottawa side being successful at this point, though I do hope the CPL grows to that point in the (hopefully not too distant) future.
    Like most people born/raised in Ottawa, I don't know the Gatineau side very well, but it'd be cool to have games at the base of the mountain, near the Campus Gabrielle-Roy of Cégep de l'Outaouais, there's a couple fields and space for a popup at least (though I have no idea about parking or ease of accessibility, I just like the idea of playing at the base of the mountain)
