  1. Who would have predicted that Japan would have won the last world cup? No one. **** happens. We can bring home the gold.
  2. The CSA should sell the entire three game package for a total of $20 and they should give away a crapload of tickets to soccer clubs. The goal should be to ensure that the stands are filled, and filled with Canadian supporters. The CSA should not be trying to make a profit from these games. They need to get bums in seats and build interest in the next rounds.
  3. There are a lot of them.........and they will all show up. They will also travel heavily from the U.S. This game should be well attended. I imagine there will be many more Ecuadorians at this game then there were Costa Ricans for the Costa Rica match.
  4. Shame and Scandal............seems appropriate......... It's a Trini calypso song.......but the ska version by the Wailers with Peter Tosh on vocals is the best version:
  5. Find your MP here: http://www2.parl.gc.ca/parlinfo/compilations/houseofcommons/memberbypostalcode.aspx?menu=hoc Click on the their name and you should get their e-mail info. Simply fire off an e-mail and politely ask for a flag. Most MP's still have them. If that doesn't work, try a senator........any senator. I sent e-mail's to about 12 senators and I ended up with 20 flags! Here is a list of senators: http://www2.parl.gc.ca/Parlinfo/lists/senators.aspx?Language=E&Parliament=8714654b-cdbf-48a2-b1ad-57a3c8ece839&Name=&Party=&Province=&Gende
  6. I suggest that anyone who wants a free Canadian flag, who lives in Ontario, to send an e-mail to Senator Art Eggleton or Senator Linda Frum. I sent them both of them e-mails last night and they both replied this morning that my flag was "in the mail". I'm still waiting to hear back from the rest of the Ontario Senators.....................LOL. Art Eggleton egglea@SEN.PARL.GC.CA or Linda Frum fruml@SEN.PARL.GC.CA
  7. Here's an old one for sale on Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Used-Vintage-CANADA-Football-Soccer-Jersey-Home-Sz-L-/220638293285?cmd=ViewItem&pt=US_Soccer_Fan_Shop&hash=item335f112d25
  8. Too funny. Here is a list of MP's in case anyone needs to find their MP: http://webinfo.parl.gc.ca/MembersOfParliament/MainMPsCompleteList.aspx?TimePeriod=Current&Language=E
  9. You're supposed to be able to get them from Senators as well. New MP's and Senators get them sent to them automatically. Other MP's and Senators need to fill out a form in order to get a batch of flags. I have never tried asking a Senator..........but I will give it try as my MP already sent me two flags and turned me down when I asked for a third! Here is a list of Senators and their contact info: http://www.parl.gc.ca/common/senmemb/senate/isenator.asp
  10. You can get those flags for free from your MP. Just send an e-mail to them and they will mail you one. If your MP is Bloc............you may be SOL.
  11. They had three jersey's from what I remember. One was similiar to this jacket, except the jersey was white, not black. They made a really cool black jersey that had the crest of each Province in really faint squares. http://cgi.ebay.com/UMBRO-TEAM-CANADA-SOCCER-JACKET-MENS-LARGE_W0QQitemZ350242717347QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_SM_Fan_Shop?hash=item518c17bea3
  12. MLS was virtually UNKNOWN in Canada when TFC was announced as an expansion franchise. MLSE had to formulate a marketing plan on how to sell this product in what many thought would be a finnicky marketplace (Lenarduzzi said himself last week that he never wanted the Whitecaps to join MLS, that is, until he saw the success in Toronto because he initially thought Toronto was doomed to fail). MLSE did a brillant marketing job, and their launch of TFC is the formula that all new franchises in MLS borrower from. MLSE had to build up awareness and hype prior to launching their ticket campaign beca
  13. Wrong. I guess that's why the last three expansion teams were pillaged from the USL?!? How does that help the USL succeed? It doesn't. The USL is trying to overtake MLS...........why would MLS want them to succeed?!?!? They compete for talent, the USL is not supposed to be a minor league system for MLS. Kandji was bought by New York. They had to pay a transfer fee. I am sure MLS would rather do without paying transfer fee's and just sign the player outright. Remember, MLS does not like to pay transfer fee's.....and USL teams will never give their players away for free.
  14. USL is the competition of the MLS. MLS would NEVER let a franchise operate a business in the USL. They want to put the USL out of business. The Whitecaps affiliation with the USL is over in 2011.
