  1. Seems an Andrew MacRae signed with Tulsa in the USL. https://www.uslchampionship.com/news_article/show/990723 Played with a Larne FC in Norn Iron. Second tier NIFL Championship.
  2. My French is really (really) rusty, but it seems he's saying because he believes it can't work, it won't. The affiliation part for the Impact should the CanPL establish a team in Quebec seemed a bit tone-deaf as well. Thanks for posting it.
  3. Does he have impact (ha!) in the market?
  4. Agreed. I actually find Sportsnet is a bit more sports newsy focused than TSN, which spends most of its time pushing it's properties and doing "investigative" pieces. Make no mistake, Sportsnet pushes a ton on its NHL and MLB properties but they do seem to send media to cover sports events and announcements too. I think the key here is they are using a CP report, so no reporter dispatched to the event despite it being in Toronto. Sportsnet's John Molinaro attended. Also of note, as far as I can see, CBC doesn't even have it posted on their soccer page: https://www.cbc.ca/sports/soccer
  5. The beauty of this planet (if you believe the sphere-earthers) is that you can go whatever direction you want and eventually get there! ?
  6. Not to be pedantic, but isn't Japan considered "west" of Southern Ontario considering that's the direction you'd fly to get there? I immediately thought of Europe when they tweeted "east"
  7. Really want this done because - simply put - it is a reasonable thing to do that extends a tremendous amount of good will. Plus, and maybe this is my work voice speaking, having the mechanism from the get-go would have avoided this very discussion and would mean that it doesn't have to be built on the fly as the communities that have been mentioned (hopefully) come on line. Aside: does anyone know if any of the staff and stringers the league is using to generate content are bilingual (English and French)?
  8. I agree on both fronts: it's an issue that needs to be addressed, and yes, it's own thread would be great, or in a thread dedicated to where we as supporters want to affect change on certain issues.
  9. Nope, not going crazy about it. Won't go crazy about it if done with an MLS team either. As long as all seven teams operate within the framework of the league, they can all have seven different approaches to player development/acquisition.
  10. New signings announced. Three Canadians in the fold. Pacific Football Club bolsters lineup with trio of Canadian youth internationals
  11. Only if he has a stuffed parrot.
  12. The fact remains that the player pool is not good enough. What's the board's opinion on "hot-housing" young players the way the States does for both hockey and for soccer (although someone would have to confirm they are still doing the Bradenton (sic) plan.)
  13. Another article on BBC that talks about his national team aspirations (albeit briefly). http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/35431114
