    • He is... to him, the whole country should have had clubs in USL being glorified feeding teams to the "MLS mighty trinity".
    • Another proof of how much this man hates himself... Canada DARING to have it's own independent league and trying to develop it's own football infrastructure?
    • Are you seriously going to argue we would be better off with a Whitecaps farm team in Calgary instead of Cavalry?
    • In addition to being more fair this may also be more pragmatic, considering the potential for logistical challenges due to government restrictions. They can perhaps market it as a play-in tournament and generate a real buzz. Furthermore, they could host it in Qatar to give them more of a dry run. It would be like a world cup appetizer.  Downside would be that you'd lose the passion that comes with playing home and away for a spot in the world cup, but at least for this cycle it would arguably make sense.
    • No moratorium and there would be no CanPL and no Onesoccer. The rest I won't dignify with a response.
    • The take away from last window regarding Kaye is that he can be outstanding or he can have a poor game. I imagine the LAFC fans would agree with that statement. With Eustaquio it's becoming clear you basically get an 8 out of 10 every game. 
    • Also looks like One Soccer raised their rates. Its now $100 per year. https://shop.onesoccer.ca/
    • This seems like such an odd conversation to have in a thread about a player that spent 4 of his prime development years in a Canadian MLS academy
    • Just an aside, it looks like Montreal and Vancouver will be allowed to field teams in the new MLS division 3 league that will start up next year.
    • L1O and PLSQ aren't relevant, but a moratorium against American leagues from 10+ years ago is relevant in a OneSoccer thread? Besides, you like to point out how the MLS teams end up playing a part in developing players that end up in CPL. L1O and PLSQ do that for CPL as well (and the national team). Besides, that proposed D2 league that you are praising is already massively disappointing. There weren't any players from it listed on the 60 man Gold Cup roster. That's terrible optics for the proposed league. Besides, I don't think Edmonton Scottish will be able to get 5000 paid attendance to make them viable, but I don't have any screenshots from past games to count the number of people there, and even then probably most of the people there were comped the tickets. They should probably look to move out of Edmonton to somewhere more like Red Deer which is more inline with the CHL type of market rather than an NHL/CFL market.
