    • What sadistic bastard dreams up a thing like that?
    • I'm guessing he's saying that because of where the broadcast games are being played. Halifax 6 Hamilton 4 York 4 Pacific 3 Valour 2 Cavalry 1 Edmonton 0 Are there some sort of limitations to Clarke stadium that is preventing them from getting any home games on the schedule? Less than optimal sight lines for cameras?
    • @BuzzAndSting He did not contact the league and the league did not contact him. I'm sure it's not as easy as just reaching out to get noticed or interest, like you said most of this is through agents, contacts, within the inner circles of Canadian soccer and who the coaches know
    • And Mamadi Camara? The NCAA D2 standout with Simon Fraser University who got himself noticed at the MLS Combine and drafted by SJ Earthquakes this year
    • Yeah the majority of guys don't really have agents they just go to their "parents" country with a few contacts in hope of landing a contract, sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesnt.  I did ask him if any teams ever reached out to him and he said no He was released by his club in Serbia in December, and the open trials were from September to November - Hamilton being October 1 & 2. So it's not possible for him to have been as you can see No the league is not to blame, it's the clubs head coaches who sign the players at the end of the day. It's unfortunate and quite frankly frustrating to see a guy like this and so many others go to waste, before it was because there was nowhere on go and now he just fell through the cracks or was identified but not picked. All 7 coaches resort on the Canadians they do know Like I said before the league did however provide a list of 200 Canadians playing in europes lower leagues and around the world to the coaches and some coaches used that info but most did not. Pacific signed ex whitecaps, FC Edmonton signed u of a guys, academy graduates and Edmonton native pros, cavalry is pretty much foothills, valour - lots of former U20 youth Canada players from rob gales time, forge is sigma, HFX is a mix of everything, and York 9 is GTA based. Im very happy and couldn't be prouder of this league forming, but the coaches need to look at ALL Canadians not just the ones they know. Because otherwise this happens, a talent is overlooked because of no familiarity, with 10-12-16 teams and beyond this will be fixed
