    Olivieri may suck as a coach, but there’s definitely some strange vitriol coming from @SpecialK about him, almost like it’s personal.

    All this talk about TSN and yet no one's actually said they've seen CPL highlights on Sportsnet. But they had a column about it on their website so I guess that's better than actually showing clips on their channels.

    Ok. Here's how this conversation has gone so far:
    Me: Wow. The CSA really dropped the ball on this. They had plenty of time to figure this out with the co-operation of all the clubs.
    You: This is all TFC's/MLS' fault because I hate them.
    Me: That's ridiculous. It's the CSA's job to make sure the Cup is awarded.
    You: You're so biased towards MLS. Here's a bunch of tweets that don't actually prove my point, including this CSA tweet from a month ago.
    The CSA: Here's a tweet from yesterday where we still don't say when this Cup is supposed to actually happen. But it's still totally happening, guys.
    Bill Manning: It's our understanding that it'll happen after our season.
    Me: That's unfair to the CPL team.
    You: Stop your anti-CPL bias!

    Right. You've gone to ridiculous lengths to avoid even partially implying that the CSA dropped the ball on this, and I'm the biased one.

    If they wanted true neutral ground, 4 CPL teams were eliminated a while ago. If they wanted an MLS venue that could potentially be neutral ground, they know the 3 locations. Nothing was stopping the CSA from just picking a venue and going with it. The finalists don't matter.
    Yes, if the CSA had been planning the Cup final for right after the Island games then MLS would have known about it in in early August. And you know what MLS did about it? Not ******* announce the next round of games for the Canadian teams until mid-September. I realize there's always things happening behind the scenes, but I'm sorry. That's more than enough for the CSA to sort out the Cup final.

    It's common knowledge among actual Canadian soccer fans that the CBC broadcasted several CPL games last year.

    Wait.  It doesn't matter that the CSA wanted to the hold the finals right after the Island games if (as you say) they couldn't lock down a venue.  And if they could lock down a venue, then it's on them to make the announcement of the date.  I mean, the CSA has known weeks in advance what the schedule of the Canadian MLS teams in Canada was.  Further, the shift of the MLS teams down to the US wasn't announced until less than a week ago.  If the CSA couldn't get a venue and date organized in that time, that's on them.

    I'm not even going to bother responding to all that other stuff because it's not as "gotcha" as you think it is, and what I've quoted is what I've repeatedly said the CSA should have done all along.

    Always comes down to usage.  It's surprising (or maybe not) how quickly an excellent turf can fatigue into a mediocre product.  In a way, I guess, not unlike an overused grass surface.  Except of course the turf won't grow back.
    It's also surprising (or maybe not) how reluctant facilities are to replace worn turf. 
    "It was supposed to last 4 years!". 
    "No, it was supposed to last 5,000 hours.  No one told you using the thing 24/7 wasn't going to burn it out in a year."

    Right. 
    Why didn't that happen?
    Do you know when there was a lot of wiggle room? Before MLS decided what was going on with the CDN clubs. The Cup final could've and should've been scheduled before this next phase of MLS was finalized.
    Seriously, it's long been known that the CPL final is three days after the last game of the CDN MLS phase. There was plenty of time for the V's Cup to be scheduled before MLS decided what to do for the rest of its regular season.
    Wow. A club looking for a competitive advantage. What a bunch of ********, amirite?
    And as someone else suggested, the CSA should have called MLS over a month ago and told them that the V's Cup final was set for Sept. 26. Be there or the Cup goes to the CPL winner.

    Cripes, your giving him too much credit, he didnt even know the CPL was on CBC every weekend.  I wonder how much more they would have lost this year if there were no island games, and how much credibility/momentum/fan base the league would have lost by having no season at all.

    You’re right. In that case the CSA should schedule the final and if TFC can’t make it MLS should accommodate them or simply not have a Canadian club with a shot at the CCL.
    There is one completely innocent party at this stage and it’s the CPL and their winner on Saturday.
