Ian Kennett Posted June 24, 2005 Share Posted June 24, 2005 In the latest World Football Pages issue, CSA president is quoted as saying that he is amazed that Toronto has managed to turn down $37 million of goverment money toward the construction of a soccer specific stadium. Amazing is not the word I would use, but this is a nice forum WHY NOT - split the $37 million up and divide it among the following. Greg Kerfoot in Vancouver who will from his own resources build a SSS in the Vancouver area, Joey Saputo in Montreal who will from his own resources build a SSS in Montreal, Kingston's Richardson Stadium, for a facelift, where the crowds are pro-Canadian, Improvements to another venue or two where soccer is truly appreciated at the Canadian level. To me, this makes more sense, as does promoting MLS in Vancouver and Montreal, than trying to force feed Toronto which just does not seem interested in getting anything done (Unless Downsview miraculously happens), and where soccer is appreciated by most only at the European level. What sayest thou? Cheers! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
