  1. TSN highlights 3 choices: Wilkinson, Priestman & Laura Harvey. https://www.tsn.ca/soccer/video/three-coaching-candidates-for-canada-s-women-s-national-team~1979237
  2. CSA said manager should be announced in August. One potential option is Bev Priestman coming back. There is now also a bunch of club football managers to look at. Maybe one of the Champions League managers - assuming CSA can and will pay more than women's club football.
  3. NWSL tournament starting this weekend. Orlando Pride pulls out because a number of players and staff test positive. Apparently some went out and about around Orlando including night clubs. Some matches will be on CBS. Rest on CBS All Access.
  4. Fox won't have rights anymore as of next season. Most of the matches will be on ESPN+ with about 4 matches on ESPN. More maybe if covid screws up US sports in the fall. Bundesliga wasn't entirely happy with Fox's coverage after initially being excited. Plus FS1/2 don't have much of a reach. So no surprise with the restart, Fox's coverage is just carrying the world feed like Sportsnet. Only difference is that they carry the feed with the enhanced crowd noise while SN is au natural. But with nothing else on, Fox ratings have been the highest since 2015. But ratings for la liga matches this weekend were still higher even though bein has even much less reach than FS1/2.
  5. In the age of Covid, the US Fed, Bank of Canada and other central banks are also buying almost any corporate bond within their reach. So there is no shortage of demand for debt from the most crappiest of companes. And any corporate bond rating should be viewed skeptically since one of the 3 major rating agencies are being paid by the issuer for the rating.
  6. 21st Club - the firm CPL hired to set up their international player pool database - did a podcast with Athletic UK. CPL content starts at around 39:25 mark. Items of note include too many bears in Canada was a headwind in having a pro league for the past 100 years. Quality of international players was a disappontment in year 1. Lack of connections and inexperience amongst club management was the primary issue. Cavalry signing Cordova came from their database as 21st viewed top teams in Peruvian 2nd division similar to CPL level. Also compared CPL level to English League 2/National League. Podcast host knew Cavalry came from Calgary. Life in Canada great selling point for players. High production quality of matches also helps.
  7. Good news everybody, looks like we'll qualify for Qatar. Supported by the Donald himself.
  8. MLS playing in Orlando is a risky move. Florida reported this week their highest daily cases. Florida recorded more than 1,000 new cases on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (the state’s highest daily total yet). That record only stood for a day: It was eclipsed on Friday, when the state reported another 1,902. Florida is also playing fast & loose with their numbers. They fired their web dashboard person for not manipulating figures for the website. They also stopped reporting hospitalization and never have reported cases in nursing homes. Republicans getting flak for moving their convention in late August to Jacksonville. No fans for MLS but I'm waiting to see if MLS shows up on the media's radar.
  9. Overall good that he is leaving as he wasn't going to take the team back to the top 5. Herdman can be interim manager till they start playing. 😏 It better not be Wilkinson - tactical acumen is non-existent. You also need someone who can identify talent since our youth system isn't good at it & there aren't good enough leagues for u20 to display their talents. Canada has second most registered women players, top 10 ranking and going to Olympics. So, CSA should be able to attract an experienced senior national team manager. Pandemic hit for CSA shouldn't be too much since they didn't generate much revenue from the private sector and fans anyway. So, they can probably still pay similar levels to what KHM was receiving.
  10. Right now, he's not promoting anything on TV, radio or billboards. No name Raptor players have gotten more endorsements (even before they won). He's known in Canadian football circles and is in the process of getting known by the Canadian sports fan. He didn't even make the short list for athlete of the year in 2019. Yes, he trends on Canada twitter when playing now but the vast majority of the tweets are from outside of Canada. Canada has a problem promoting athletes outside of the major North American pro leagues. Olympic athletes get a bit of action just before and after the Games but then disappear. Andreescu won athlete of the year in 2019 but I haven't seen her yet on tv, radio or billboards.
