Oh, I know he mostly posts negative. I just think it bothers most people here more than it should. Or maybe I'm just better at largely ignoring it.

Just shake your head, call him a cunt, and move on with your day. It works for me. ūüėĄ¬†

He can believe what he wants but when new people and curious readers comes here for info on the league - I don't think some of his craziest posts should go unchallenged... not for his benefit but for those who don't know a lot about the league. 

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I think some people's behavior towards him is a bigger negative for any new fans coming here than anything he says. That's not to say that some of his comments shouldn't be challenged (they should) but there's definitely responses to him a lot of times that are not banable but are more detrimental than anything he posted.

I agree with this. The way he posts it kills people with a death by 1000 cuts kind of manner. But there are lots of responses to him that are just straight up name calling attacks, like from SthMelbRed above, or 95% of longlugan's posts. And the thing is that a lot of Ozzie's controversial posts aren't even wrong. They are either a different viewpoint (that I disagree with as well, namely MLS reserve teams in CPL) or little unnecessary digs/reality checks that are typically right or have a strong element of truth to them. Sometimes the point is exaggerated (like calling 200 fans a game essentially the same as 2500 fans a game, although you could argue that either way it isn't enough for a pro team long term) but it's usually not way off base.

...and I would suggest that if you don't ban posters like longlugan you shouldn't be telling anybody on here how to behave because you have allowed this forum to degenerate into a complete cesspit. I have posted on here for 20 years because I am passionate about Canadian soccer. To have it suggested that I do not want Canadian soccer to succeed is offensive in the extreme and frankly sickening.

Go fuck yourself douchebag.

Got an update from BC this time ... looks like CNL is delayed one year and CSA will sanction teams to play in Canadian divisions of US leagues (very important)

Men's teams will play in USL-2: Calgary Foothills, Edmonton Scottish, FC Manitoba, FC Tigers, TB Chill, TSS Rovers, Vic Highlanders + possible Sask team.

With the women: Foothills & Impact will be leaving UWS and joining a Canadian division of WPSL along with EDM Angels, Manitoba and Okanagan.  Not sure about FC Berlin.

Any clue why the CNL is being delayed? Seems like the summer series has been going well so far?

Nothing wrong with that if it raises soccer's profile in cities like Thunder Bay and Kelowna. One size doesn't necessarily fit all. What remains to be seen is where Simcoe Rovers fit in if there isn't space in L1O for two Barrie clubs:
