Young said he envisions a capacity of 5,000, if pro soccer were to come to Langford, with the ability to go to 8,000 in the years ahead, if needed.

Right, so the goal is 8,000. Did you think these teams were gonna draw 7,000-8,000 in year one?!?

When the CPL announcement seemed imminent, I stopped caring about the roster rules of American leagues. If anything this strengthens the CPL player pool.

I broke it down for you guys *** CPL Commissioner Clanachan interview  https://youtu.be/xQ5oAOq3pJk CPL working on different scenarios and schedules to restart the league Single ta

I just have to say, I am enjoying this league even more than I originally expected. I think in the 12 years I have followed MLS, I could probably count on two hands the amount of games I watched that

So Valour, 9, Cavalry, Port City...who has the lamest name so far? lol

Ahhh, leave them alone.  They're having a bit of fun with it and good on them for it. I guess).

And to be fair its a tough business naming a franchise.  No one wants everybody to just be called FC this or FC that.  At least the names chosen (so far) can lead to proper nick-names evolving over time. 

And keeping in mind this whole CPL thing is really a sort of Mom & Pop co-op league I'd say they're already a generation ahead of what corporate MLS introduced to the footie landscape in this part of the world a generation ago.  Wizards! and MetroStars! and Galaxy!  I won't even mention Mutiny and Fusion.  OOOPS.  My bad.

I was about to let everything slide but then you picked on Galaxy and if there's one name that proves the general North American style of sport name can work in soccer it's the LA Galaxy whose name somehow fucking works. Could have picked Burn or Revolution or tasteless Fire but instead you went for one of the 2 hits they had (the other being Rapids). Boo.

Mom and Pop co-op league? Am I way off in thinking that there are some very serious and wealthy investors putting up big bucks for this league and each of these clubs? That term seems a bit impertinent.

There definitely is some major money people involved with this, definitely not mom and pop.

Disappointing that he said 6-8 teams at launch.  Til now, the line has always been 8-10.

Last week Scott Mitchell said 8-9.  Yeah I find it interesting for sure.  Can't wait for the I told you so posts coming any minute now lol
