    The problem with the hex is 29 nations would be eliminated almost 2 years before the World Cup takes place. Mathematically  it was harder to advance out of the semi final round (finish in top 2 of 4 teams) than it was to get to the intercontinental on playoffs and the World Cup (4th out of 6 teams)

    It's great that another country in the region has found a way to get stronger, because it's what CONCACAF needs.  And I'm glad I'm hearing about this now, so that I have plenty of time to prep my answers to the dreaded "Canada lost to Suriname???"

    Well first one leaves out Hoilet, second leaves out Arfield.  I know what your saying, but Herdman wants them all in, thats why he keeps sticking Davies at LB.  It'll end up being a situational thing, which is fine.  Its good to have versatile players like Davies, lareya, Miller that Herdman can move around a bit.  Its a luxury that we havnt had lately.

    The groups that people have drawn up are fine examples, but I am certain their will be a draw (from pools) if this is the format. There always has been, they won’t do straight up seeding. This isn’t the Money Cup, I mean Gold Cup.

    This is basically the old semi-final round, except the stakes are different...
    You still need to finish top-2, except now top spot gets you directly into the WC and 2nd might get you a chance at the half spot.
    It's not ideal, but considering the team we have, i'll take it. 
    If this becomes a thing, I would like for them to come up with a play-off for the 2nd place teams, if time permits of course. Even just a single-elimination between 2A and 2B, with 2C getting eliminated.
    Someone is going to win the Antigua punching bag sweepstakes in the draw. They'll get a serious chance to pad the goal difference. I'd say it's more fair to make that team play a single-elimination home match. At least make them earn the half-spot that way, you know?

    Did you watch the game? Dest would have had little impact considering he’s not a mid fielder. The problem the Americans had at BMO was in midfield. We destroyed the USA in the middle of the park and Dest is a fullback. I believe neuker recently said the same thing about Dest before he got banned.

    I find it amazing how often the CSA was tipped off about a major player issue or new eligible player through our supporters and forum.
    Picture in this particular case, Dino calling them to say, hey guys, I think you should call Asmir,  based on one of our threads. Liam's dad is only the most recent in a long line of players and family members (Daniel Fernandes, Stalteri's wife, Josh Simpson's Dad, etc.) and well-informed fans who have made this such a fun place over the years, despite the current rather sorry state of things.

    Considering that’s his goddamn father, I’d say it’s not “a very big if” about there being a plan. You’re speculating on something you know nothing about.
