    First bold: Isn’t that literally the first mandate in every nation’s FA charter? To strengthen the domestic league?
    Second bold: I can think of only one thing, which was to create a holding company to manage league-wide, non-game day tasks, specifically the broadcast rights.

    Not having to listen to Gareth Wheeler repeating stuff like that ad nauseam whenever he scores a goal is a definite plus.

    Of your last twenty posts, half have some factual base, half are speculative.
    And whenever you get in a hole, you taunt the other poster with your typical "Have your been hanging out with the Parrot?" or similar, your go-to argument. When you are as in the sky as he is. 
    So speculation, trolling, cheap shots--and then the other half worthwhile informed posts. I can understand why you feel comfortable on this board, I do too.

    I'm calling the guy who endlessly speculates negatively on CanPL topics, now calling for restraint on speculating on a positive development the dickhead. But well done on your excellent reading comprehension, there.

    So this is the time when it's inappropriate to speculate on something that we know nothing about? Mate, have you seen your posting history?
    *can someone whom he hasn't put on ignore please quote this so the dickhead might see this. 😉

    The Ottawa region has a large francophone population and Canada is bilingual so not sure I follow the logic. That kind of mentality is probably not helping on Quebec expansion. Beyond that Atletico sounds a lot more like soccer to me than Fury or Wizards or Intrepid or Pioneers and this is a soccer league not the CFL. If this gets the league to ditch the "By Canadians For Canadians" style nationalism and having David Clanachan droning on about rockem sockem soccer all the time and prompts it to shift over to welcoming in all investors that will help it to be as high a quality league as possible very much in the mainstream of the sport in international terms then it will be a positive watershed moment.

    I would call a database of player info a scouting tool -- one of many -- that a team might employ to help decide who is of interest. I would call a draft a formal process to arbitrate the selection of particular players in an ordered way. Neither one necessitates the other.

    You think?
    ’United’ is not really a brand, it’s an English word, and in the footie context, has no meaning outside the UK. No disrespect to Atlanta, but that’s basically a name that teams settle on when their creativity department fails them. No casual fan will ever associate AnyTown United with Manchester United.
    In the footie context, ‘Atlético’ is not a Spanish word. It’s a brand. I propose that every casual fan will immediately know what Atlético means and who they are.
    I could be wrong.

    At your earliest convenience, would you please share with us your brief view on what differentiates a club model from a franchise model.

    Crepeau should not be anywhere near number 1 for national team..even in vancouver if they go with him as no1 this year they will have trouble in goal..seen too many weaknesses from him to really believe he would be a strong no1 at mls level

    I dont think anyone started off wanting the Fury to fold.  Lots of animosity got built up before CPL played a game and it only got ramped up by the sanctioning baloney that followed.  But once it was a choice of joining CPL or not being allowed to continue with USL....where was the middle ground that people could have chosen??   By that point alot of people were of the opinion that they did it to themselves and if they chose to fold so be it.  
    As for perspective and group think, sometimes most people think one way because its the most logical way to look at it.  Complaining about group think or accusing people of acting like sheep doesnt actually make your opinions or point of view any more valid.

    Yeah, him signing with Halifax is evidence of a secret draft.  Or maybe they just signed him without a secret draft.  Put on your tinfoil hat and sasquatch slippers while you ponder that.
