    Toronto Ruffrider got a reaction from Ams1984 in Match Thread: Island Games - August 13, 2020 - Forge v Cavalry   
    It's pretty lousy - super far from the field, the drone sound is annoying, and I swear the camera isn't even pointed in the right place half the time. Plus certain parts of the pitch are obstructed in that feed. lol

    I saw two streams on the OneSoccer web page. For me, the stream on the left is the raw one, and the one on the right has the BLM+fake bleachers+commentary.

    I just found it, it’s called “tactical feed” and it’s even worse! I can hear the bloody drone or whatever it is.

    Toronto Ruffrider got a reaction from Unnamed Trialist in New away kits...   
    I was talking to my account rep about joining the Collective a couple of hours before the kit reveal, and he asked if I wanted a home or away kit for this season. I opted for the away kit, saying that I've never bought a jersey without having seen it first (I thought it would be good for a laugh). My rep said I could message him at some point in order to change kits if I didn't like the away kit being revealed.
    After having seen all of the away kits, I've got to say that that's a unique look. I'm going to keep my kit selection as-is. The electric green-on-black looks good, and if I bike to Lake Simcoe again, I won't have to worry about getting lost along the way.

    Just saw the revised format - I love it. This is infinitely better than the previous format - there is no clear demarcation in skill level between the sixth-best team in CONCACAF and lower-ranked teams, so the reward for being ranked sixth should not be as colossal as it was going to be in this cycle of qualifying. I just hope that for future qualifying cycles, CONCACAF keeps something like this new format rather than reverting to the old "have vs. have-not" qualifying groups.
    To the Salvadoran supporters, that's tough luck. I understand why they would be peeved, but realistically they've done nothing to warrant being lumped into the same group as Mexico, USA, Costa Rica, Honduras and Jamaica. El Salvador hasn't been one of the tougher teams in Central America for a long time, so it's fitting that this country has to earn its way through, just like Canada, Panama, Haiti or Trinidad and Tobago, have to do.
    As for our forecast match-up against Haiti, bring it on. It left a bad taste in my mouth when we fell apart against Haiti in the Gold Cup, and we're getting a chance at atonement. Besides, as others have pointed out, if we can't beat a nation like Haiti in a two-game playoff, we don't deserve to go to the World Cup anyway.

    Until today, I still can't understand who the hell proposed the previous format and how the hell it's been reviewed and approved. It's the most ridiculous and shamful WCQ I've ever seen in my 40 years of soccer experience.  Even my elementary school leage won't let that sxxt format pass.
    Without the interruption of COVID, that format is deem to be a laughing stock of the soccer world. Mr Vic Montagliani should be called "president of 6 nations" for the rest of his life. I would say so even if Canada was within top six nations who get a bye for final round only decided by FIFA ranking. 
    When we can't see a fair format to start with, how  could we expect fair play in CONCACAF?

    HOPEFULLY it's because they working on having new kit sponsors. I'm not a fan of having the same sponsor on different teams (especially with only 7 teams). On that note , where are companies like Home Hardware, Cdn Tire, Petro Canada and any of the major banks? I think with their billion $ profits every year they can afford it.

    I agree. I don't understand why MLS continues with these lame gimmicky tournaments, especially when it's clear that fixture congestion is a big problem. The MLS playoff structure was trimmed down, and I assume that at least part of the motivation for that was to trim the schedule and wrap the playoffs up earlier. I would rather watch a big playoff game any day instead of a pointless match in a nothing tournament. MLS really has its priorities straight...

    For comparison sake, the Campeones Cup in 2018 (which is similar in it's cash-grabby-friendly nature) drew 14k fans in Toronto. Hopefully the Leagues Cup draws even fewer fans. These things at best do nothing, and at worst distract from what's important.

    This reminds me of the old SuperLiga tournament held between MLS and Liga MX teams around ten years ago, except lamer because it won't have the best teams from either league in it. Honestly, given all of the issues regarding fixture congestion and what not, we don't need tournaments such as these. If the time exists to hold meaningless tournaments, then the same time also exists to throw in additional matches in the Canadian Championship, as an example.
