    Yeah I have seen subs wear mask, but not players walking out with them. 

    Also, this black panther fist and commentary is a little over the top. I shouldn't have been so surprised lol

    I hope that the extensive protest was just for the first game. If that is what they are going to do for every  game  (including taking a knee before and after the anthem) it will be counter productive  to the movement

    If I was on TFC I would be hoping for some sort of airline strike to delay that flight south again and again .  

    I'm assuming you mean an employee strike rather than a missile strike but given the current economy for airline travel, I think a missile strike is more likely at this point.

    From the article:

    While the Canadian MLS teams head south to the COVID hot spot of Florida, NHL teams reportedly will be coming the other way to play.

    Canada, Vanney said, seems to have "a lot better control of the situation."

    "To be able to go into that environment as a team would be a lot more comfortable than going down to what has essentially become the epicentre of the virus," he said. "So for sure, that (coming to Canada) is a smart move."

  4. TFC's other first round draft pick, Nyal Higgins (from Ajax, Ontario) was signed to a contract today - albeit to TFC II. So were two other academy kids (both Canucks), midfielder Antonio Carlini and defender Themi Antonoglou

  5. Has any explanation been given by MLS why Orlando of all places was picked as the hub city for MLS games in July? Outside of the issue of the growing number of Covid 19 cases in Florida (which perhaps they wouldn't have guessed would happen) I just read that some games are being held at 9am in order to avoid playing during the intense heat of the afternoon, which they surely must have known would be an issue. Seems like the worst possible choice they could have made.

  6. Morgan & Hamilton have yet to see the bench for their respective clubs after the first two games. Neither has Norman Jr. Jay Chapman at least made the bench yesterday for Miami but did not the see the field. The same can be said for Dayne St. Clair but Raheem Edwards however did get onto the field in the 88th minute for Minnesota in their 5-2 drubbing of San Jose, and Tajon Buchanan came on for another late sub appearance for the Revs. Kamal Miller did not leave the bench for Orlando (who seem to have gone to a back three) but Akindele played the full 90 in their 2-1 loss to Colorado.

    Sorry I’m an idiot don’t understand “ white knight “. So your  such an expert on soccer that you can detect that the play is watered down ? I don’t know how old you are but I come from an era when trying to find any soccer on tv or in any media here in Canada was virtually impossible. Put it this way I had to go to an Honduras social club back in 1985 to watch Canada play in a World Cup qualifying game against Honduras. So ya I’m just loving all this soccer I’m able to watch now here in Canada and the attention a league like the MLS has here in Toronto even if it’s a fraction of what the Leafs, Raptors and Jays get. So ya when I’m watching games with full stadiums and yes not all stadiums are always full I’m loving it because compared to soccer back in the Stone Age back in the 1980’s this is a beautiful time for me , and now throw in the CPL and even better. Therefore, this constant bashing of the MLS I don’t capisco if you understand what is what like for a soccer nut like me back in the day!

    I am wondering if you mean 1981 instead of 1985? I watched all the qualifiers in 1985 on CBC (except the home match against Costa Rica as I was in the stands for that one to see that famous equalizer by Paul James).

    According to the much hyped MLS Audi Index, he earned 112 points for that miss.  The guy in charge of marking him should have lost -112 points.  Who was that?

    It was actually Brault-Guillard who was ball watching on the play - to be fair, I thought ZBG had an excellent game otherwise.
