    I'm not going to lie, whenever I see entire sections near the first base line at the Skydome practically empty, I think there's no way in hell they're even close to their reported 21k average attendance. Then I think of this thread.

    What I find completely mind-boggling that neither side can recognize the validity of the point the other is making. This is the internet at its worst. Yes, it is the M.O. of most leagues and a standard operating practice. Yes, a first year team in a first year league reporting 2500 when its more like 900 is more worrying than an established big league club adding a few thousand to a five figure attendance. Not hard guys.

    With Bustos, I wonder if his extreme one-footedness would be even more of a liability in a league with better defenders. It has already cost him a few goals this year and renders him less effective in many situations.

    The CPL clubs announce tickets distributed like other pro sports leagues and that is the reality, they're not "pretending" they have significantly larger crowds at all. Pretending is you claiming an attendance number that Pacific FC never had on Sept 11(1200) is real. All pro sports teams offer freebies and you have no idea the amount Hamilton offers or if its any different in percentage on average than other NA sports teams.

    Just had his value updated on transfermarkt. Now valued at 17.10 US. He is currently the second most expensive player in the entire league!!

    Home Field advantage?

    Someone has to explain this to me because I'm not getting it. Aside from Forge, who dropped points to LAST PLACE Wanderers this weekend, and Cavalry who haven't really played a lot of home matches no other team's home record this Fall Season is especially shouting out "home field advanatage". And you'd think in this league, things being what they are, that it should. Pacific and Wanderers are on the very edges of civilization. I mean seriously, if you went much further left or right you'd fall right off Turtle Island so there has to be some sort of travel advantage just built into their buildings because of geography. Add the atmosphere at Wanderers Grounds and the city's reputation as being ummm...a rather fun place to visit and you'd expect safe money would have Halifax as a fortress for the CPL side. But no. It's not bad but geez, has to be better. York Lions is a mini field and grass surface to-boot. A-gin, they're 500 at home but why? IT'S A MINI FIELD NO ONE ELSE PRACTICES OR PLAYS ON. OWN IT. Spruce Meadows has the grass, pretty rare in this league. Oh, and Cavalry play there so all good. Good little park in Edmonton. Maybe hurt by the fast plastic that some of the other teams are accustomed to I'd guess. Could say the same for Tim Horton but Tim Horton isn't a stadium you want to visit and are unlikely to bring points out of (Forge 2 Wanderers 2, cough, cough). Not even going to mention IG Field. Actually, yes I well. With two words. GAWD DAMNIT. Now IG Field and Wanderers Grounds may be suffering from the same symptom. That is to say the buildings energy works as much for the visitors as it does for the home side. But still, I don't know. Scheduling? Small sample size with Forge & Cavalry running the Fall Season? Lack of goal scoring? Don't know, but I expected to see way more of a home field advantage within this league to be sure.

    Geesh, dont say that. When it was suggested a run out with CMNT and a goal would help get Larin on track everyone was offended. Personally i agree that some u-23 success might build up his confidence.

    That's pretty ambitious. No Belgian league player has gone for over 30M. Only 8 have ever gone for more than 20M.

    David has 7 goals and 4 assists in 12 games between Jupiler League and Europa. He's getting lots of Belgium press coverage outside of Gent and he's easily a top 10 player, maybe top 5 in Belgium right now. Gent will do everything they can to maximimze his transfer value and if he manages to get 25 goals this season, he'll go for 30M+ euros. If Gent is smart, they'll take less in transfer money up front from one of the top clubs but a higher sell-on percentage and send him to a club like Lille or OM and still end up making more.

    It actually happens in every league in North America, so much so that it's the status quo. It's been done routinely in the NFL, NHL, MLB and minor leagues, even college football has had this issue the last couple seasons. Because of that no one obsesses about it, except for you.

    CPL new teams speculation

    You are the one bringing any supremecy BS into this. The thread was talking about the CPL highlights getting on more TV networks. You brought up minor leagues etc.

    To what end? I highly doubt we are going to capture the attention of many US soccer fans. And even if we do...? Better to focus on growing the game and brand here in Canada.

    #off-topic Would this be a good idea to grow the CPL brand in the states Purchase the old NASL twitter and re-brand as another CPL highlights or an expansion franchise new account. Would gain access to 48k twitter soccer fans. https://twitter.com/naslofficial?lang=en

    CBC should really have a sports channel. They have some great sports properties and if they were to throw in U Sports and maybe jr hockey you would have a great platform

    It would be hard to believe any fully professional team in any coast to coast Canadian league is sustainable with only a couple grand showing up a game.

    For anyone curious in other parts of Canada, it sounds like the Wanderers Grounds weathered the Hurricane Dorian without any damage. Halifax was hit pretty hard but a few folks drove by the grounds and said it looked fine.

    Would he really be ahead of Cornelius, James or maybe a rep (Vitoria?) from the over 30 crowd? U-23's could use him sure.....but has he made any noise about repping canada??

    Finnish culture is strong but this is still very strange career wise for this young man. Finland is respectable but pretty bleak in terms of tournament prospects. All he'll have to look forward to is qualifying matches.
