    The Red and Green Show

    The Red and Green Show is the unofficial official fan podcast which encompasses all things Cavalry FC. The podcast features guests who are connected with the CPL, upcoming opponents, as well as current Cavalry players.

    It is hosted by Joey Cavilla of Lethbridge, Alberta. Joey is a huge Juventus & Italian national-team supporter with a degree in political science from the Univeristy of Lethbridge. A current high school football coach, future teacher, and recreational soccer player, Joey is conversationally fluent in Spanish and looks to bring a fresh jump to Cavalry's course.

    • You think?  Word on the street is the only reason they're surviving is the expansion fees.  League is already huge, and isn't slowing down, its a bit out of control really.  Not sure where they'd be if it weren't for the millions in expansion fees.  They need a major broadcasting contract soon, or this might implode sooner than we think.  The existing model worked to get started, but they'll need millions from broadcasting rights to take the next step and take the handcuffs off, let the teams own their own players, remove the cap in order to compete with Mexico in champions league, etc...  until then the league and owners will remain in the red and dangerously close to folding. I don't see anyone lining up to offer anything remotely close to what they'll need to stay afloat any time soon.  Breaking point will surely be at 30 teams.
    • "Excluded" like somehow they were treated poorly? 🤣
    • It feels like it was months.   
    • I think they were just chancing their arm to see if they could get away with it. Good to see that the answer was "no". Now they are chancing their arm again with yellow lines although I don't know why they are doing it. Perhaps yellow lines are easier to erase? If so, by all means let us put the needs of the ground staff ahead of producing a professional match day experience.
    • A salary cap can be important for the early years of the league to keep up the financial viability of the clubs. As far I'm concerned though if an owner has deep enough pockets and is willing to spend the money they should be allowed the option. I don't have an issue with it though for the time being 
    • Agreed, though I imagine as we get closer to the date there will be a bunch of marketing of the Championship. One thing I would like to see changed though is it being a 2 legged game. I would much prefer the Spring Champ get the home date in a one off game like what NASL was doing
    • After perusing the MLS roster rules real quickly, the only thing I would really take from them is the salary cap (at least for the early days) but I'd prefer it to be more luxury tax based. I think an argument could be made for a DP spot as well though I don't have an opinion one way or the other, but other than that I completely agree
    • Not even a salary cap?
    • Not a rule per se, but they need to change the criteria for qualifying for the Championship. If you win the spring and fall, you should be CPL champion. Plain and simple. Cavalry have nothing to play for at this point. It's a real shame and I am definitely not paying as much attention to the CPL as I would have otherwise. Really hope the change that for next season.
    • I see it as a rising tide raises all ships. Add some higher quality players to U Sports and the Canadians are only going to get better. I still don't see it having much of an effect of bringing Americans to U Sports though. Remember when we all thought there would be a bunch of Americans in CPL? And there's what? One American on loan?
