    Why was the original CSL short-lived?

    To me the answer is simple back then we didn't really care about soccer in Canada and had no way to follow it internationally. With advances in technology we are able to get the top leagues in Europe and we now have MLS close to home. The reality is knowledge and support of soccer is just stronger today then it was back then.

    Ottawa CPL Club

    I really have no idea - I was asking not suggesting. I cant wrap my head around the concept of a governing body like CONCACAF being able to decide what *professional* franchises (who's owners have millions of dollars invested) can play in what professional leagues. Im not saying if it is right or wrong. I just cant wrap my head around it to even form a coherent position.

    What if the USL simply says 'we dont care if CONCACAF sactions the Fury we are still allowing them to play'?

    Speaking of local bars we had a little get together last night for some Christmas cheer. We managed to raise 325$ and a trunk full of food for local food banks. Great time had by all. https://twitter.com/Privateers1882/status/1071598481683439617

    CPL TV Contract

    The way is see it is DAZN is 20$ and there is no MLB or NHL. For 26$ I get a streaming cable package with about 100 stations including all the TSN's + major networks. This gives me NHL/NBA/MLS/MLB/EPL/NHL. On top of that I get live news, other live sporting events, kids networks, news networks, a movie network ect.... DAZN just doesn't seem like its prices right except for the NFL coverage. 20$ durign the NFL off season seems way way too high compared to the alternatives - like the one I just listed.

    CPL General

    To be honest I feel it is going to be a decades long process to find 10 financially viable markets in Canada for a fully professional league. CFL hasn't been able to do it in 50+ years of existence. I think it would be a stretch to think in our lifetime the CPL will have enough strong and viable franchises to start moving tams up and down. Something to my knowledge has never happened in any North American professional sports league.

    I may get chastised for agreeing with BBTB - but 'strange' I think is a measured responsible term. I was thinking more along the line of something that comes from a Bull..... lol

    Actually we are having a very cool event this Friday. All members can drop by and get a free Wanderers flag to fly. Looking forward to seeing these pop up all over the city. This is the kind of promotion clubs need to get the name out there.

    Or play the games in a place where they will sell out aka not Toronto or Montreal. Or maybe they just really don't care about the optics of the matches.
