  1. Why on earth does the 2nd round snake back again? I mean soccer drafts are stupid, but at least do it right ffs.
  2. Jeez, I hope some of these guys are surfacing closer to home. All decent players based on year 1. It will be interesting to see who replaces them.
  3. Looks like Bolivia are free for a second match. Should be able to take them on neutral ground. (Although they did beat Haiti at altitude recently).
  4. It's too bad the pundits don't use their power to build a North American football culture. The closer the gulf between Canada, the US and Mexico, the better for everyone. Particularly in terms of TV $$$.
  5. Either way, it's a league killing expense that is covered.
  6. Why would a club need to be out of Vancouver? CPL at a refurbished Swangard would could kill the Caps right now, imo.
  7. Who is going to be his Mickey now that Ribery is gone? Kid, if it doesn't have 100g of protein and isn't crusted in gold, you don't eat it. Period.
  8. Works for CSB and formally with L1O. UEFA B license from Ireland.
  9. There are really only a handful of our players abroad making a living wage. If you aren't Liga 3 level, you aren't really professional. As much as I would concede that Div 4 Germany, or Div 2 Scotland/Scandinavia is more exposed to the next level, the CPL has to do a much better job than MLS at selling players on to 1st Division leagues in Europe. The most exciting thing for me is not the players coming back, but the players leaving with real professional experience under their belt. I think we have to take lower fees, sell ons, December trials, or whatever other means to be known as a league where you can launch a solid professional career. This is an area where we can compete with MLS right away, imo.
  10. We were staying in Shirley outside of Sooke, so I came in from the West (I think) which really left me with the impression that Langford is a bit of a frontier town. That said (by an already suburban dad), I thought it was quite nice. We spent some time at the new playground between the stadium and Rugby Canada. For sport, this seems like an important location and, long term, I wonder if it will grow a bit like Surrey where, all of a sudden, you have lots of population around to support the club. Save for the match, I didn't see anyone in the colours around that way -despite visiting many breweries and spots you might expect it. Made me think there are lots of fans like Ted making a long commute from Victoria or Saanich. That said, Sooke to Jordan River is literally littered with hipsters so I'd expect some local growth.
