    Yeah, but that's something the MLS teams should take up with the USSF. It's also something that Canada Soccer should advocate for on their behalf. I don't think the fact that Canadian teams playing in American league don't have rules they're happy with means that Canadian teams in a Canadian league should bend-over backwards to help them out. 

    One for Canadian Championship, which really is the MLS team's spot to lose. One for CPL. That's what I hope to see in 2020.

    My latest possible time for us to get a second spot in CONCACAF would be in the 2022 CONCACAF League. After the 2021 CONCACAF League that competition will have played 5 years, which is how far back they take results into consideration for the CONCACAF Club Index. That means all the slots in CCL and CL will have a full complement of results by that time (with the exception of things like Guatemalan teams, but they don't have those results because of their own doing, rather than just a lack of time).
    So once everybody has their full 5 years of results, we can fairly say who is the worst and can be relegated out of continental competition. Then bring in a new slot for the country with the highest average CONCACAF Club Index that isn't at the maximum of 4 slots. Oh hey look, that's Canada, so Canada gets spot number 2 with a Club Index of 0 to start out. That brings Canada's average of about 90 down to about 45 and potentially some other country has a higher average Club Index for next year. So that other country could promote another spot into CONCACAF play, etc. Promoted slots can't be relegated until they have been in CONCACAF play for 5 years, and thus have a mature Club Index. Also, the last spot for a country can't be relegated I suppose (because I don't know how they could earn their way back in). We can also do promotion and relegation between CCL and CL with the Club Index.
    It all makes so much sense, they have to do it. If they don't do it by 2022 CL, I riot.

    BBTB stressing the soccer needs to be really good angle again?
    He is missing the point time and time again. This is about supporter's culture and giving people a local club to call their own. This is about watching local kids fulfill their dreams and play professionally. The soccer needs to serve a purpose for people to come out in the pouring rain. Yes, the quality does matter but if that was the main factor to come and watch, which it won't be, people would just sit at home and watch the EPL. If the quality of soccer was as important as he's making it out to be, TFC would have died after that first home game against the Kansas City Wizards.

    That's all very well and good, but if you're going for a true coast-to-coast derby, you should travel by ship through the NW Passage. Clearly, it's the only way that makes sense. 
    Be sure to raid Halifax while you're there, just to stick it to the Privateers.

    The pro basketball leagues in this country are extremely low on the pro sports scale, and are quite regional.  I suspect at this point, Basketball Canada is just happy to have some sort of pro league presence in the country and have little interest in forcing a merger.  There is also no FIFA-like organization that imposes consistent rules among basketball leagues into an organized, tiered structure as is done in footy.  In short, the case of the Fury playing in a US league has very little in common with the small pro basketball leagues fighting for survival here in Canada.

    Miami (Thursday, December 13, 2019) - Concacaf typically does not comment publicly on sanctioning matters, but due to the lack of clarity regarding the state of the process and the unilateral statements from various parties in regard to the Ottawa Fury Football Club (Ottawa Fury) participating in the 2019 season of the United Soccer League (USL), we would like to clarify the following:
    Under international sanctioning rules, clubs that are affiliated to an Association may only join competitions in another Association’s territory under exceptional circumstances. For the sanctioning of such play in our region, approval must be given by Concacaf and FIFA; 
       Concacaf to date has not received a formal request from any party to consider sanctioning the participation of the Ottawa Fury in the 2019 season of the USL, despite public announcements by Ottawa Fury that it would be doing so;
       In the fall of 2018, after unilateral public statements made by Ottawa Fury and before any sanctioning application was made to any governing body, Concacaf clearly advised the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) of its concerns regarding this matter. A further written correspondence to the CSA followed in November, providing guidance on our view that as it stands to date, we do not see exceptional circumstances, given the launch of the Canadian Premier League (CPL) for the 2019 season.  As the governing body for international football in North, Central America and the Caribbean, we are committed to govern on behalf of all of our 41 Associations and key stakeholders.

    Whatever you think about the Fury for skipping out on CPL, they would be a loss to Canadian soccer

    I think all this speculation about what type of internationals will be signed is a product of being trained by MLS to think of each roster spot as having specific rules that a player must match this, this, this, and this in order to be signed. I think the international spots will be used by CPL teams to sign international players, and that their age, experience, position on the field, leadership qualities, etc, will vary from player to player.

    In my opinion it would make 0 sense for the CPL to be awarded it's own spot directly into the CCL right off the bat. Apologies for the broken record I've become on the topic, but I'd like to see a CONCACAF League spot if not in year 1, soon after. Then I want to see a mechanism using the CONCACAF Club Index that allows for spots to promote and relegate between CONCACAF League and CONCACAF Champions League (and for new spots to be berthed into CONCACAF League). That way CPL can find its appropriate level in continental competitions.
