  1. What???? $1300+ and $1100+ for season tickets in the three middle grandstands???? Is that a misprint?
  2. Very Very Very Slim but a lot closer the zilch. The Wanderers would not even let them use the stadium for their exhibition game. Besides that the capacity is 6500 or so - well below what a CFL franchise need to be any way viable.
  3. How can you determine in anyway the 'roster doesn't looks strong?' I don't think anyone really know how these rosters are going to perform in CPL. I don't think its like any city is blowing out the lights with top level stars. To me there will be no way to tell til the action kicks off.
  4. Weeknight, traffic jam on the 401, Maple Leafs were on TV - always 100 excuses T-Dot. Lets just hope all the empty seats don't carry over to the regular season.
  5. TFC without Giovinco, Vasquez and Altidore are not the best side by any stretch of the imagination. Do you base Panama having a stronger league then MLS because their Champions beat a MLS team that didnt make the playoffs and lost their top players in the off season?

    Franchises in Jr. Hockey seem to run from a couple million to over 10 million in value. Id guess the team in Cape Breton would be at least a few million.

    BTW I don't think this has been mentioned but Simon has also purchased a majority share of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles hockey team in the 'Q'. So he has a few franchises on the go currently.
  8. The USA has over 300 million people to our 35 million. They have 21 MLS teams to our 3. An American team has won MLS every year except when TFC won 2 years ago..... As much as I hate to say it I think it would be absurd to advocate Canadian clubs should get as many spots as American clubs at this juncture.
  9. I don't buy that explanation. This is just bizarre in my mind. I doubt the 4 other clubs just said 'yea we wont bother this year - gonna save a few bucks'.
  10. A little tally I put together - numbers are current as of Feb 9 2019 - High noon.
  11. I think they key for this league to thrive is to win over causal sports fans. In order to do this there is only one answer 'Television'. CBC, TSN, Sportsnet (or any other major network that will broadcast it). Also you will need TV, Radio Stations and newspapers reporting on it. Anything short of that it will be considered a minor league outfit by casual and non sports fans.
  12. 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.
