  1. Yes, it is true, I believe. I saw the commercial advertising the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup on Gol TV Canada, the whole tournament. I am imagining that the Canadian games will still be shown by Rogers Sportsnet and Gol TV will not show those ones. I am not sure. I do know, I believe this is a first that the whole CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament will be availiable to all Canadians on television. Before you would have needed a U.S. Satiliete and watch the tournament in Spanish on Univision. I will email Gol TV Canada to confirm this all.
  2. I agree. I dont get why MLS does not shut down for 3 weeks. I mean, MLS could use the regional championship for North, Central America and Caribbean championship as a marketing tool, ditto with CONCACAF. Their is a lot of potential in making something big out of the CONCACAF Gold Cup into something big down the road, with the right marketing.
  3. Folks, it looks like that Canada will not be left out in the cold with regards to coverage of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. I saw a commerical on Gol TV Canada today saying they will be showing the whole tournament from June6-June 24th. Any comments?
  4. yes, that is truly sad state of affairs.
  5. Interesting article I found with regards to the discrepency between the highest and lowest paid players in MLS. http://www.terra.com/deportes/articulo/html/fox393713.htm any comments
  6. Nice. I still will watch the Spanish version of the games on Telelatino though for some of them.
  7. Long live Mercenary coaches. I wish for the days of Holger Osiak again. I am afraid, it is going to be another long drought of 7-8 years again, not going to qualify for the 2010 World Cup. I am already planning for 2014.
  8. This is going to even make this more corny, but I checked out www.soccertv.com and under North, Central, Caribbean and South American competitions, that all three games for Canada at the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup are going to be shown by.... CBC???? Check it out for yourself. Now I have emailed CBC to see if this is true or a hoax by the www.soccertv.com website. Here is the link http://www.soccertv.com/amer.cfm
  9. Shaw Cable is having no free preview. That is the unfortunate news. As for the Brazilian league, they advertise it on their site. I would email Gol TV Canada if they will show the national league championship which starts May 12th.
  10. I agree. Simoes MUST be the coach for the canadian mens team. This guy has at least some track record. And what is even better is he knows CONCACAF teams, namely the Central American & Caribbean teams inside out. If Simoes is not the coach, then I do not know what.
  11. It has been a pleasent mixture of Colombian, Spanish and Italian games. I look forward to the Brazilian league. That is one of the main reasons why I got the channel besides the La Liga.
  12. Cheeta I have to agree with you. Good things happen to those who wait. I ordered Gol TV at 9 this morning. When I heard the representative tell me it was only going to cost me 50 cents extra because I had already ordered RDS from before (the French TSN), I was in pleasent shock. My eyes were lit up. This made my day.
  13. Does any one know, or has any one heard about the status of the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup (Canada's games in particular) with regards to television? I believe the CSA's contract ran out with Sportsnet at the end of 2006. So will Canadian soccer fans be SOL with regards to the Gold Cup this year??
  14. I am glad you like the find. I was bored and went to the CBC site and found it out. I like Craig Forrest. He always tries to provide good Analysis. Nigel Reed will be an excellent commentator for the CBC. I look forward to Mitch Peacock doing sideline (?) analysis with CBC. I wonder if now that Peacock is going to be working for CBC during MLS telecasts, is he done with FSWC? Too bad CBC couldnt get Dick Howard. Only problem is with Steve Armitage? Seriously. Could they have not gotten a better person to call FIFA U-20 games.
  15. Craig Forrest joins CBC's soccer team. http://www.cbc.ca/sports/soccer/story/2007/04/17/cbc-soccer-broadcastteam.html
  16. I know I was only kidding about the Winnipeg Alliance. But you get my point about Toronto FC. The bottom line is this: They have to re-look their tactics for their upcoming games, or they will get creamed.
  17. Yep the Toronto FC were pretty bad this game. Montreal Impact, Vancouver Whitcaps could even bet them. Heck, maybe the Edmonton Drillers and Winnipeg Alliance FC could give them a run. Well I should not go that far with regards to the Edmonton Drillers and Winnipeg Alliance FC, but you get the point.
  18. No Problem. Gol TV finally being added to Shaw Cable already makes my upcoming week.
  19. two words: Really bad. Toronto FC looked so horrible. Buddle is a knob. Mr. Mo Johnston better wake up. I know it is only two games in, but they were brutal. Even Chivas USA and Real Salt Lake were not this bad. It could be a long, long year.
  20. It is great news indeed. Fortunately I get Shaw cable. I dont know if MTS has Gol TV yet. I feel their pain. The reasons why I cant wait for Gol TV are: Spain's La Liga Campenato Brasileiro Urguayan, Honduran, El Salvadorian leagues
  21. I got an email yesterday from Gol TV, saying that it was coming to Shaw cable 151. I then called Shaw Cable Winnipeg to confirm this. It is coming as of Wednesday April 18th. No word yet if there will be a free preview. I saw on the website, it would cost $2.49/mth for the channel. Final Analysis: After almost one and a half years of lobbying, Gol TV is finally coming to Shaw Cable Winnipeg.
  22. By the way. What is wrong with -1C. In Colorado today, they are playing their home opener in 30F weather with snow flakes.
  23. I just ordered the season of MLS from the MLS website. This package shows the regional games from MLS. If you can stand buffering on your computer then, it is good.
  24. guys, if you go to www.mlsnet.com they are offering a package for $20.00 US to see all regional MLS games that are not televised on ESPN, FSC or Telefutura. Pretty good deal if I say so myself.
  25. I have to agree with you IDO. Winnipeg was pretty bad the first game. A lot better the second game. The coaching of the Winnipeg team could have been better. Mr. Goetting was great for Winnipeg. While Wolde Harris, IMO left a lot to be desired. I dont think he was (Wolde Harris) use to the indoor game. Rarely did "Bling Bling" finish off anything. I did not recognized almost most of Winnipeg's players except for Wolde Harris. Here is hoping Winnipeg plays better (whenever) they play next time.
