I find it hard to believe that anyone with aspirations of running a pro team in Canada would be looking at the US 3rd tier right now.   Aside from sanctioning issues (see Ottawa Fury) and the general lack of awareness of the NISL (I had to google it), we have CPL and discussions for a (regional?) D2 structure underneath it.  In that context, an attempt to get approval to join NISL would be... odd.  

Agreed on all of that. And if they are looking for a temporary home until there is a D2 here, you would think they could follow Barrie and Peterborough’s lead and go to L1O with their pro aspirations.

But as odd as it sounds for a team in Toronto to want to play in NISL, it is even more odd for a team that wants to play in CPL or L1O to just be tweeting about NISL. Hopefully we find out more in the coming months or year, and this doesn’t just fizzle out into nothingness.

what in the world is nisl

Ha, the guy with “dyslexic” in his name switched it from NISA to NISL, and I repeated him. NISA is National Independent Soccer Association. I think it’s planning on having pro/rel, maybe no salary cap, etc. I don’t really know much of anything about it.

Davis Quinton:
Hey, come to watch the match, did you? Thanks for donating the footballs, by the way.

Lacey Burrows:
Oh, well, it's the least I could do for our soccer team... give them some soccer balls... to play soccer with.

Davis Quinton:
The, uh, proper term is football. I think it's best for the kids to hear some of the British terminology.

Lacey Burrows:
Oh. Hey, what's the British term for someone who uses stupid British terms?

Davis Quinton:
Wanker.

Lacey Burrows:
Good to know.

Sounds like market research for the York 9 rebrand.

I hope not. Unless they are looking to relocate the team inner Toronto then it would be interesting.

There's a rumour they will relocate to Woodbine racetrack as part of the  redevelopment

Horse racing is in a slow decline for decades. Makes sense from the standpoint of diversifying the business and bringing in people to use the casino/slots.

The industry has received millions from government to prop it up.

They have a mascot named Lucky, could this be Yorky's replacement? Can CPL handle two horse themed stadium/mascots?

So, maybe I missed a conversation about this somewhere (been busy with other things lately), but do we have any sense of what Westjet's pull-out from Atlantic Canada is going to mean for the Wanderers (and future expansion to Moncton, St John's , etc.)?

Its only temporary. Due to covid travel restrictions.

Besides Westjet still flies to Halifax. They just cut their other Atlantic routes.

So they are giving up on the whole "York Region" angle and cement themselves as a Toronto team?

I have no idea what they are thinking. 

If that happens, we have an "Etobicoke" club. Metrolinx have plans for a GO station there while TTC Line 6 opening in 2022 might be extended to go there before hitting the airport.

Also

There's space for sports in the redevelopment plans
