    Rocket Robin got a reaction from ted in CPL new teams speculation   
    And just two years ago this group was complaining about '(City Name) (animal name)'.   
    "Oh don't be like every other North American league."
    "Hey a big game coming up...FC United vs United FC.   Really important as United is four points ahead of United. I hope the craft beer is cold."

    Name drop at today's Zoom press conference of possible player for @1812FC (Barrie) in their first season in @League1Ontario is Jeremy Hall.

    He does tick the box of 50 @TorontoFC appearances!

    There is a virtual press conference next Thursday to announce a new League 1 Ontario team for the 2021 season.  It will be in Barrie.   And the name (only posted here to annoy the 'numbers-in-team-names' haters  will be...….

    Ha.  Now I can hear all them googling what part Barrie played in the War of 1812.

    Article says the club will play at J Massie Field at Georgian College.  I looked it over from Google Earth.  It does have a lot of seats for L1O.  Artificial turf with gridiron lines is also not unusual for L1O.

    Hello guys and sorry if this has been covered in another post but I would like to get the support of Canada's soccer community. After a lot of hard work it looks like ours dreams are becoming a reality and we are doing a virtual launch of 1812FC named after the roll Barrie played in the war of 1812. We will be having an online press conference where you are all invited. Our launch date June 18th is the day the war started.
    This has been a labor of love and hopefully it will give people something to look forward to after the crazy 2020 we all have had to deal with. I would also like to thank all the support and well wishes we have received from members of this forums, I am humbled by the amount of people that helped us along the way.

    I am sorry that I cant answer too many questions until the big reveal on Thursday.
    Regards
    Ronan

    BMO Field has TFC and the CFL Argos as a tenant also owned by MLSE.  
    Varsity is artificial turf and has a track around the edges.  Even wider than York's.  
    Lamport is also artificial turf.

    Toronto was actually named York because Governor Simcoe liked English names not First Nations ones.  Residents petitioned to change the name back to Toronto in 1834 (1793 was when it was changed to York but I assume Simcoe was out of the picture by 1834).  So inside Toronto there is North York, the city of York, and East York.  The region extended north to Lake Simcoe (almost up to Barrie) so there are a lot of 'York' names up there too including the county (now Region).

    Well my One Soccer subscription expired (April 27th?).  I can't see any highlights nor game replays etc.  
    That year I paid $49.99 which was a 1/3 discount because I was a SSH.  
    This year from what I read months ago, I was going to get One Soccer for 'free' because I am a SSH.  My club hasn't reversed their debiting my credit card from back in November.  
    Subscribing sign up now treats me as a new subscriber but there's no way I'm going to pay (nothing content wise has been updated on their site since February).  
    Will things be automatically updated when the crisis is over or have any of you phoned or e-mailed their help desk?

    30 years ago! The 1990 Canadian Soccer League season. North York Rockets only produced programs for the first half of the season. 
    I've got newspaper clippings and standings to complete the season.

    Now added in my CSL collection is the 1992 season.  There were no programs issued at the stadium but 'The International Soccer News' was sold at the entrance of the North York Rockets game and I'd piece the lineups together.   The playoff edition had the entire regular season statistics.  Only six teams and this was the last year of the league.

    On my own site I've taken pictures of all my soccer programs for 1991 of North York Rockets and one for Toronto Blizzard which was during the semi-finals and it has the regular season stats for the entire league.  I'll next work on a 'scrapbook' of the newspaper clippings from the Toronto Star and Toronto Sun and add that to my site soon.
