DigzTFC Posted December 11, 2007 Share Posted December 11, 2007 Dear Mr. Knowitall, Your post have motivated me to sign up on this forum. I fail to see how not having a pro league in Canada would lead people to not represent their country. I understand that most of our premier players have selected represent other countries, but this is more about advancing their club careers and cashing in. Today's soccer players have no loyalty to country or club (with few exceptions) Owen Hargreaves was developed in Germany....is he giving back to England....no, but he had a fantastic WC and cashed in big time with ManU Jono is going to cash in as well with a move to Chelsea. He'll be a blip on the dutch radar screen and be in and out of the lineup. I'm guessing 12 caps for him. Although the CSA is in disarray, wearing the red in white means more than that. These guys are just mercenaries. I understand that heritage also has to do with their decisions, but does that mean their upbringing in Canada meant nothing? I understand their decision from a career standpoint, but have a hard time considering them Canadian. How they can consider themselves Canadian and turning their back on a country because of administrative issues is a scapegoat excuse and should be treated as such. One day they will realize how fortunate they were to have the upbringing they had and they will have to reconcile with their decisions. and Vitoria will never set foot of the Portuguese team.....ever I've read several of your posts now and although you have a educated argument, I truly believe your non chalant arrogance offends more than just me.
