  1. People from Saskatchewan support their sports wayyy more than Newfoundlanders
  2. I can't believe we have to wait this long wtf
  3. Having seen a few Peruvian games live myself, I can attest that it falls under the weak MLS to high level USL stream and will likely be half a notch to a notch better than the CPL during their first year.
  4. Is York 9 not their natural rival? That goes without saying, I'm not a Hamilton fan so I don't truly understand you're culture and what it takes to build a rivalry. Then again, York's a hell of a lot closer in distance than the other rivalries in the league.
  5. His nose color makes him look Caucasian, no?
  6. Isn't there a park near the ruisseau DE brasserie near the projected Laurier stop on Gatineau/Aylmer's proposed LRT? It is supposed to link to the Rideau stop I believe if all goes to plan (never does) ... maybe this could hold a pop-up?
  7. Would be hard to build a 5,000 stadium on those alone unless you get creative and stack them somehow
  8. Langley or Surrey would be ideal IMO, especially with the new Langley-Surrey line coming into play and the region having like 500,000+ people within a 30 minute radius
  9. With respect to the team in Fraser Valley, just remember that the caps play DT Vancouver. If you place a team east enough you can draw those caps fans that are too far away to maybe make it the game on a regular basis. Its also a lot closer to Abbotsford and chilliwack, which has 100,000+ ppl to draw from. This can totally be done if you only need 5-6,000 people.

    CPL General

    I think he means the first player to score for their national team and/or qualify for the Gold Cup while being signed to a Canadian Premier League squad ... oh, the nuances of the English language
  11. Given the sheer number of USL teams and how weak the Canadian dollar is, I'm not surprised at the lack of American signings tbh. Their financial and professional opportunity atm is superior to ours, whether we like to admit it or not.
  12. He couldn't even get the name right ... Not to hate on Cavalry, but this guy almost looks too good to be true given his resume.
  13. This'll change everyone's power rankings
  14. As mentioned previously, what's wrong with a MB/SK Div 3 league? I agree that NL would be difficult ...
  15. Nothing, could go either way. I'm just not as totally against this as other people despite the huge stigma against nepotism. What I will have a problem with is if he gets playing time over more deserving players. Moreover, there is the potential that Cavalry were having difficulties finding players that fit into their salary cap, hence why he was signed so late in the window. But then again, I'm just speculating.
  16. I understand why they signed him simply from the viewpoint that he's probably cheap (he has an alternative income running the academy) and understands the system Wheeldon Jr. wants to establish. Having older experienced players who understand the system is key to providing guidance for the younger players.
  17. I agree, often it's the fans themselves that build the culture not the organization. Since you can't exactly choose your fans, the culture aspect would likely be what you say - "bilingual" -
  18. Yah he legit just got his Canadian permanent resident status (corrected by BBTB*) so they have a spot open
  19. Sorry for offending you, it's just my islander friend told me soccer is not well supported on the island and as such I just can't see 3-4% of the population coming out for a game. That and the 50$ toll fee is daunting for anyone on the NB side to come and watch. Please prove me wrong ... the island's a beautiful place for the beautiful game.
  20. I agree with every province, save PEI, having a team. I guess what I'm trying to say is we shouldn't shy away from having teams in as many of the Golden Horseshoe pockets as possible. It may make away travel more financially easier. Victoria to Toronto is a whole lot cheaper than Victoria to Halifax or St. Johns.
  21. I don't see why the league does not try and load up teams around the Toronto region. The Golden Horseshoe itself can probably support 5 (York FC, Forge FC, Niagara team, Peel-Halton team and Durham team) maybe 6 teams along with London and K/W being a reasonable drive from a Toronto airport. Considering that away travel will be one of if not the biggest expense (not an economist), adding a team in Toronto incentivizes adding another b/c it drastically reduces the away travel cost. As for teams not in the Toronto area, whenever I look for vacations, the cheapest deals are almost always out of T-dot. This means having more teams in that area also reduces the travel cost for teams from Victoria all the way to Halifax (Cannot wait to use St. Johns as my east-coast example one day).
