Johnson

De Rosario

Occean

Players carrying cards for Panama (just noticed our countries names are seperated by 2 letters...hmmm):

Quintero

Barahona

What's the rule on this?

Does a 2nd yellow card in the round get you suspended for one game?

Lets go ****in mental. We are just over a week away!!! My little advice, everyone bring something(beyond a scarf and/or jersey) whether it be a flag, two-stick, confetti, red and white baloons from the dollar store,etc. Keep pushing for ticket sales. LETS MAKE THIS EPIC and never turn back. When the players walk on the field they have to be awestruck. Sorry for the rant i just got really excited realizing how close we are. lets go boysssssss

The suspensions for two yellows are BS, seeing how easy it really is to pick up a yellow in CONCACAF/international football in general. But regardless, I think with two probably starting defenders and one of our midfielders who does a decent amount of defensive work in Johnson all on yellows we need to ignore about these potential suspensions. We really need to take the game to Panama right away, make them worried to take that extra touch and put in a few crunching tackles to set the tone early.

If someone offered me three points against Panama at home and then a loss in Panama I'd take it right away. I think it is important we don't let these suspensions get in the way of playing this physical, aggressive game against Panama (really using the same sort of "take no prisoners" style defending that did us well against the USA, Cuba and Honduras) at BMO field, because a suspension for the away game is better than risking Panama walk all over us in the home leg.

Blue Jays website says games on 7th and 11th are on Sportsnet so I think we might be relegated to SN1.

I am usually the last person to say this (as I usually have no issue with the Jays being on the main channel since they bring in significantly higher ratings etc), but I seriously don't get how that would be the case this time. The Jays are awful, they're playing an awful team in Boston and its not even at home.

Jays playing Boston will bring in far better ratings than Canada vs Panama.. just the way it is.

There is also something to be said about growing the brand. The Blue Jays won't gain any new support from this game being on sportsnet, and therefore no real future gains for Rogers. However, if the Canada game was on the main sportsnet channel you are sure to get a few new people interested who just stumble upon a game as important as this, which will help Rogers in the future considering they are the Canadian National Team rights holders.
