Newbie (1/14)



  1. FC Edmonton ticket deposit FAQ page mentions a total of 14games for inaugural season and 2friendly games. Meaning a 8team league for launch. - Edmonton - Calgary - Winnipeg - York - Halifax These are all confirmed.....then say Victoria, Hamilton according to Wiki and that leaves us with 1 more.... I'm banking on Ottawa although a Quebec team would be nice to avoid a geopolitical "void" on the map.
  2. First I saw commercial I thought wow MLS paid for some of it or what? But in fact if you watch the commercial again the "New Coach" was MLS First Female Coach and Something something else....in the TV series I mean.
  3. Something more light hearted. A CBC TV Drama 8part mini series about Montreal Thunder FC. Debuts 31st July. Ok I admit the title is a bit misleading in the subject line. But this would be an interesting idea for CanPL if Montreal Thunder FC played in a "Canadian League" on a CBC Drama. cheers everyone
  4. Going to be a f. long week at work until game day. Good luck trying to focus, I will be checking every news and rumor until then.
  5. Roster Changes Larin is IN Edwards OUT Other Quarter Final pairs Wednesday 19th: USA vs El Salvador Panama vs Costa Rica Thursday 20th July: Mexico vs Honduras Canada vs Jamaica That's the Quarter Final Setup
  6. CANADA vs Jamaica 20th July QUARTER-FINALS Alea jacta est
  7. The key will be not only what the Actual salary Cap will be but also the "floor", and more importantly I really hope each clubs spends same amount of money per year on their Academies as on their Roster. Salary windows should be around 1.2-1.5millions & SAME for Academies Academies same, give it until year 3-5 and you will see the academy products coming out.
  8. Well the Gold Cup is definitely giving him more exposure and adding....some pedigree.
  9. Holly crap someone was quick to Update the Wiki page.... Anyone aware that there is NO ExtraTime until the actual final? 90min and then straight PKs....unless its a Wiki blunder. In the quarter-finals and semi-finals, if the scores remain level after 90 minutes the match will go directly to a penalty shoot-out, without any extra time being played. For the final, extra time and a penalty shoot-out will be used to determine the winners if necessary. A fourth substitution is allowed during extra time in the final. Unlike the 2015 edition, there will be no third-place match.
  10. Well it is MLS and as the "commish" said they makeup rules as they go along. I realize they have a players agreement to deal with. But still I could see them pull some stunt put of the blue such as finally treating Canadians as domestic. Then saying you see, why do you need a league. Further to that the CSA needs to have something in place in order for MLS Not to cherry pick any further Successful Canadian Market.
  11. VWFC2 you actually Pay. They have located the team on UBC grounds. They actually draw a descent amount per game.
  12. In regards to Ottawa and Edmonton being in the league. I think all of us will agree it's pretty much a must (Vancouver, TO & Mtl is a different ball game all together). Correct approach would be to ask politely and maybe offer something (not sure what) to compensate for the switch. That's the carrot approach. The Stick...well not sure what the CSA can do...but at the same time I think sponsors(until now for Edmonton lack of after Sears Finacial) might force the hands of owners by asking them which league they part of (NASL no real Canadian coverage) or say CPL with possible TSN coverage (who knows maybe CFL owners will throw in the league coverage for free the first few year with CFL in same package). On a separate matter how long was it before the Ottawa Red Black actually started playing and the franchise announcement? 2yrs? That's a good amount of time to get branding out etc. 18 months might be tight....
  13. I wasn't too happy with the actual podcast. It gave me the impression that: - Schaad tried to make it look like they discussing pro and cons was really against the idea. - the discussion in regards to "What about the USL teams...."well let's face it they are farm teams. I won't cry if VWFC2 looses customers to a New Vancouver Team in the CPL. - they seemed focused on the crowds etc....ok i Don't think anyone expects 20k off the start. A "modest" 7-8k with say an increase of 5-8% in tickets membership per year would be a pipe dream for most owners. - there arent going to be any stars....etc. not sure if "most" people realised it that no one is trying to compete with MLS. Maybe in 15yrs time....but not now. Anyway I'll let others listen to the podcast as I need to listen to it again probably myself.
