  1. We are an organized group of supporters for the Ottawa Fury FC. We support soccer at all levels in the National Capital Region. We strongly believe in independent supporter culture created by and for supporters. The Stony Monday Riot is not a customer or consumer of a “game day experience”. We are, as all supporters are, full participants in every match we attend. Our passion belongs to us. We are inspired by the creativity of our members and the diversity of Ottawa’s soccer cultures. While we recognize the strengths of various soccer cultures from around the world, we believe that supporter culture should grow organically. We do not follow a particular ‘style’ beyond what our members bring with their interests, ideas, and most importantly passion. We operate on the donations of time and money of our members. We do fundraise through our merchandise. We are an inclusive group of supporters. We want to remove the barriers to participating in supporter culture. We believe in working towards being a fully bilingual supporters group. We do not charge a membership fee. We believe ‘members’ are the people who contribute their time, effort, and passion to making, sustaining, and growing SMR as a loud voice of supporter culture in Ottawa. Riot In The Glebe! Always With You

    CPL club "Identities" / Mission Statements

    So a couple of episodes back(not the last one but the one before that I believe) on footysoldiers they were talking about naming the teams and more than that sort of the club "mission statement"/"Identity" that would be the basis for each club. They mentioned "farmer johns" in regina and the regina regiment as well as privateers in halifax and how that can influence a team from the top-down so that there is always a clear purpose for how the team is going to play. Another example was the 86ers and how when they came in they said they were going to play BC guys and they were going to go for it in terms of scoring goals. I'll start off - I was thinking about Sigma Sauga - how the city is commonly understood as sort of a techhub/fortune 500 company hub and how sigma is a math symbol - this combined with seeing a tweet from the club recently where they were showing their youth players a slide show on tactics got me thinking. They could be known as precise and calculated tactically - it would go along with the Sigma thing as well as the general feel for the city. their mission statement could be something along the lines of "Our goal is to create intelligent, tactically aware players, who are capable of adapting on the fly different formations both from the opposition and from their own club, to give them a tactical advantage over the opponent - with the ultimate goal of winning, whether by defence or offence - by outsmarting the opposition". Thoughts?
  3. Corus Entertainment is buying Global TV, the increased size of Corus now with 33 percent of TV audience on over the air puts another major player in play. Corus is HQed in Toronto. Corus is a content company with majour focus on women and kids.... but is there a place for Corus to operate a sports franchise and put the games home and away on Global TV ? Global formerly owned the Blizzard... "In 1979, Global – then a regional network in Ontario – purchased the Toronto Blizzard soccer team and produced and aired coverage of the team's games in-house. The team was not a success on the field, in attendance or ratings, and Global sold the franchise in 1981 but continued to broadcast seven games a year until 1983." If the folks at NASL are aggressive could they show the viability of a NASL team in Toronto playing out of Lamport until a 15,000 seater can be built ? Corus is estimated by 2017 to be generating 250 million free cash flow, plenty enough to fund a stadium for 50 million and have a TV product on National TV for cheap.
  4. The NASL's announcement of it's 13th franchise being awarded to Puerto Rico FC, under the ownership of NBA star Carmelo Anthony, is a bad news story all around for Canada's two NASL teams and the potential for additional clubs in Canada. For Edmonton and Ottawa, their travel bill just got bigger. Puerto Rico last played in the NASL in 2011, the Islanders went on hiatus following that season, originally planning a fall 2012 return then 2013, before eventually going belly up. The current structure of the league (Spring and Fall Schedules) is not amenable to having teams play twice on a trip to Puerto Rico, as they currently only play once versus each opponent in the spring (either home or away) and twice (once home, once away) in the fall. This means that every trip to Puerto Rico will be for one game only. Secondly, as a non-American team, Puerto Rico counts against the maximum of 25% of teams that can be based outside the US, reducing the potential for additional Canadian teams. This would mean to get one more Canadian team, the league must also add two more American teams (a 16-team league). For the vast majority of US-based teams, in particular the four Florida-based teams, Puerto Rico is a welcome addition as the trip to San Juan is shorter, and more direct than their annual (and sometimes twice annual) trips to Edmonton. For the owners of FC Edmonton, being in the NASL just got a little more expensive.
  5. Had an idea that I thought I'd throw out on the forum for discussion: CIS/CCAA Combine... Why isn't there one? Why doesn't the CIS/CCAA/CSA organize one? The basics of this idea: The MLS doesn't allow CIS players to enter into the draft, but as FC Edmonton has demonstrated the idea that there are not at least a handfull of CIS/CCAA players of professional caliber is nonsense. Currently the fact that there isn't a strait-forward pathway available to these players represents a substantial missed opportunity for Canadian soccer. Therefore, why doesn't the CSA, the CCAA and the CIS get together and organize a yearly combine to connect CIS/CCAA players looking to go pro with teams, scouts and agents interested in giving them a shot. Invited teams could include the Canadian pro-teams, as well as any interested USL-Pro team, as I am under the impression that USL-Pro treats Canadians and Americans both as "domestic". Additionally, scouts and agents with connections in Europe (or elsewhere) could also be invited to help connect players to opportunities abroad. Expansion of our player pool is critical, and the Canadian player pool is so small that even if only 5-10 players per year were successful at landing a contract, over time this would result in a significant increase. Would that ever directly affect the top end of our talent pool? Probably not, but at the same time, it wouldn't take much time before it doubled or even tripled our D2 player pool, which would represent a substantial increase in the number of Canadians making their living in soccer, and would go a very long way towards increasing our domestic "soccer IQ". The greatest benefit of increasing our D2 player pool now would be creating a much deeper reservoir of domestic technical expertis for the future. Would expending scare resources on creating a professional pathway for CIS and CCAA players help us create next DeRosario? Probably not, but it might help us create the next CANADIAN Rennie or Herdman.
