They quite clearly don't. Just as you quite clearly are not if it only takes you 2 minutes to respond to a post like that. No point pursuing this conversation any further. This thread should be for the ongoing possible emergence of team #8 in Saskatchewan in time for the 2020 season.

I know at least half a dozen posters who do ignore you and another handful that have stopped posting here because of your negativity. The only reason I don’t ignore you is so that I can laugh at your constant churn of stupid posts.

I don't ignore anyone but I especially do not ignore BBtB/OtP because it allows me to remind him what a douchebag he is. Btw I'd really like to know who all these people are that are apparently pissed that the CPL isn't trying to compete directly with the MLS in a financial sense. As far as I can tell most people on here support the direction the league is taking...not to say there isn't room for improvement in certain areas but isn't that true of all sports leagues? I love how he twists things to justify his warped way of thinking and posting on here. Oh well...what are you going to do?

...and on and on. Meanwhile the obvious content matter for this thread would be something like who the opponents are going to be for the second Saskatchewan Selects game? Vancouver Whitecaps U-23 seems like the obvious one if the sanctioning issue that stopped the games against the Cavalry and FCE has been resolved.

Guess we will find out in a couple of hours :)

Maybe its because you have made most of the forum ignore you and no one realizes there is news here because you are on ignore. 

That is me.  I had no idea anything of value was being posted until I peeked (after my curiousity was piqued by your post).  The signal to noise ratio is just too unfavourable to bother with.  Maybe a third account that offers updates but no editorial content...?

Yes, I definitely seemed to be very effectively ignored on the attendance thread by all and sundry yesterday. The lack of apparent enthusiasm over Saskatoon probably has more to do with many of the most vocal posters on here still craving a big budget large market direct rival to MLS rather than something more modest in scale that is sustainable and likely to actually work over the long haul in smaller markets of over 200k. It's patently absurd to suggest that my posts contain constant pessimism when I am doing things like pointing to Halifax as being startlingly successful so far and very exciting for the future of Canadian soccer precisely because it suggests that Joe Belan might also be able to make it work in a city like Saskatoon.

This is a total straw man argument. I doubt whether there is a single person on here who envisions a CPL D1 with attendances that rival MLS. The mere idea is absurd given the smaller CPL markets. But you are clearly not stupid so why would you say this when you know it isn't true? Also, why would you suggest there is no enthusiasm for Saskatoon just because people don't post anything in this thread when there is no news?! I see lots of enthusiasm for Saskatoon, and I am enthusiastic for Saskatoon.

In short, many of your posts are clearly disingenuous and those posts are not magically whitewashed by the other genuine ones.

I really don't understand the point you are trying to make - what else is new

Maybe there is a lack of "enthusiasm" (whatever that is supposed tor mean in this context) because we don't live in Saskatchewan and many of us are now paying attention to our teams and the actual league that is playing.

I haven't posted anything about Montreal or Quebec City teams for a long time because there is nothing to add to what is already being said. Does that mean I lack "enthusiasm" for a team in those cities? Not really. 

I'm totally in favour of trying a club in Saskatoon (and Regina eventually). The summer series seems to be going well and hopefully it will work out. Those things have all been said by me and others previously. Why does that need to be repeated? What are we supposed to be doing to demonstrate "enthusiasm" and frankly WTF does it matter if we are enthusiastic on this forum?

That's a great progression from Foothills. Winners all round. Whitecaps staff get to come take a look at the sask academies and maybe a homecoming for a sask Whitecaps  player or two to be there in attendance,if schedules work? The game will also tie in to open and kick off a weekend of soccer activities http://sasksoccer.com/page.php?page_id=117125

I also plan on bringing a ladder and cornering Chituru Odunze to make sure he knows the script that he is coming back to Team Canada once his citizenship is sorted :)

This was the squad they took to South Korea, which would be a hell of a squad to watch. 

GOALKEEPERS: Sean Melvin*, Chituru Odunze
FORWARDS: Theo Bair*, Thomas Raimbault+
 
However - It should be noted Whitecaps first team play the night before in the Voyageurs Cup so a good chance at least Bair and Colyn might not make the trip, maybe Habibullah. Fingers crossed I am wrong about that though.
