  1. Man that guy talking sounds like Duane Rollins.
  2. No wonder I couldn't find it. Looking on the NASL site. Thanks
  3. Felt Hemming never got a fair shot at TFC. From what I saw, he is a good player and will do well. Going to be a valuable pick up for the Impact I think. How much did he play last year?
  4. But Grizzly acts out the game in real time with action figures!
  5. Perhaps I am being harsh... but I was saying it about him after the first half when we were playing well. I wasn't the only one who noticed, apparently the Revs did too. I can see things being confusing first time out with a new team, but no matter what team you are on you never stand and watch the ball while they guy you are supposed to be marking takes off. He wasn't even close.
  6. Thank you! You are the only other person so far who thinks New Guy blew the 1st and 3rd goals. Not to mention getting cleanly burned several times before that.
  7. Watching the San Jose vs. Chicago game online. What a fantastic game in comparison. Two highlight reel goals already.
  8. He got brutally burned twice in the first half, and twice in the second half. They scored on those.....
  9. The only thing that truly makes sense is that at half time Preki decided to reveal the fine print of their contract which was their mandatory participation in a horse porn site to subsidize their income.
  10. On second thought, he doesn't deserver one.
  11. Ok, we really need a name for Mr. Unpronounceable.
  12. Bah... pulses are optional. This guy lives in Toronto now
  13. That thread title is remarkably uninspiring.
  14. You mean to sign for the academy or from the academy? From the academy, that would seem pretty optimistic.
  15. Yeah, I don't think anyone is thrilled with that possibility.
  16. LOL! I will never forget the seagull hotdog battle that went on during a TFC match once. It was hilarious. Then they got Bitchy the hawk. Not a seagull in sight since, must be one mean hawk.
  17. Ok this might be a more reasonable version of what I am trying to say without sniper rifles and fire.
  18. There is every indicator an MLS franchise in Montreal will be a HUGE success. That is why we are having this conversation. But how will it take shape. The last thing I want to see/hear a few years from now is how UM02 is boxed in by security and being told to sit down by moms whose kids are playing on the inflatable playground behind the stands. So the question remains what is that 'permission' and how do you 'grant it' to the guys watching games from St. Laurent to Jean Talon? That short bike ride is your target market but they are as fickle as a group of teenage girls. Legit
  19. Oh, no, I disagree. They have not even scratched the surface of that yet. This is what I am talking about with the 'permission' thing. There is a big difference between these two things. 1. Complaining about your local team because it is local. 2. Complaining about your local team because that's what all soccer fans do. It is a subtle but powerful difference. What I am hoping for in Vancouver and Montreal is the scaling up the likes of UM02 and scaling down the family contingent on a massive scale. Toronto probably could have done much better on
  20. A special interest story isn't the same thing as what I am talking about. Toronto passed a certain critical level of 'something'. How exactly that was accomplished I don't think is clear, and what that 'something' is isn't easy to describe. The best word I have for it is permission. I am willing to bet the majority of people on this board are to some degree, for want of a better word, promoters of the game. I have done that in all three major cities. We have all had 'those' conversations wrt to Canada or the three USL/A-League teams. In Toronto, you don't have those co
