  1. If he was in the English system, chances are he be starting/ coming off the bench for a Div2/ Conference Club somewhere
  2. What is not (might not have been noted) with regards to these dates is that they cut across the Christmas Period. Irrespective of the English Obsession to Play across the Festive season, I wonder how many fans will be able to Justify the not insignificant cost of this trip so close to what is considered in most regions a family holiday time to be spent at home.
  3. Also with regards to Rugby League usage, Kingston Communications Stadium in Hull; Hull City AFC and Hull (Rugby League) FC. Another thing that annoys the Current owner of the Tigers. Also, Old Trafford is used for the rugby League Playoff weekend (Semi Finals-and Full Final). Plus Elland Road gets a fair amount of usage when the Sothern Hemisphere Nations come to Town, due to its 40Kplus capacity.
  4. This is the RIB take on determining an artificial for Rugby Union. http://www.irbplayerwelfare.com/?documentid=67 similar from sports England encompasses Rugby league. http://www.sportengland.org/media/30651/Selecting-the-right-artificial-surface-Rev2-2010.pdf Thing to note on Rugby League there is no Maul, Ruck or Scrum manipulation for the Field to contend with, Just hard tackling.
  5. Which Just goes to Show that Its a sport best reserved for the Dohyƍ
  6. The only reason for a bumpy, uneven and downright poor grass surface in such a stadium is down to.... not putting in down right in the first place. By Putting it down right, I mean spending the Pre requisite dollars on soil assessment, procurement and methodology in execution.
  7. Wonder if this deal was mad....In a Drunken Stupor?
  8. Its been my experience that urban professional men Single men in 30-40's group with no kids tend to have no disposable income due to alimony payments.
  9. Which at this current rate of expansion (15 clubs in 5 years) could be in place by 2020. Ideally 32 clubs, mind. this would allow for an Unseeded 5 round Knockout cup Competition and give the NASL league 2 bottom dwellers a chance to play the Cosmos! (yeah yeah, we know. It is ALL about the Cosmos)
  10. Yes and I personally like a model which forces the clubs to be fiscally prudent whilst allowing them independent autonomy. A "truism" I heard recently went like this, "If the owners of Association Football clubs applied the logic they employ in running said club, to their daily business enterprises, they would never make enough money to own the damn club in the first place. I'm sure this also applies to other sports. Also: while I'm god I'd make sacking head coaches/managers only admissible during off season.
  11. I would say one word... Dominant! and probably a significant part of a UEFA based transatlantic competition.
  12. On that subject Consider that the Cosmos put (according to Tom Fath) break even numbers of 6K+ onto the bleachers in their Inaugural season. The buy in for NASL is 750K a $20million bank balance for the Principle (50%+) owner, and a clean field stadium with 5K capacity you don't need to be a billionaire owner in the NASL.
  13. Okay this isn't a p*ssy post like the last few, but rather a considered one. When it comes to National Stadiums, are Canadian soccer fans becoming transfix on the likes of Wembley when talking up National stadiums? It is understandable as This can be considered a true National Football stadium (NFS) for the following reasons. It is capable of Hosting four (4) codes of football : The Three indigenous ones Association Football, Rugby League and Rugby Union (although Twickenham is really home to this code), plus the visiting NFL code from across the Atlantic. Obviously any visit
  14. I didn't know that you could sign you kids up for Canadian football when the are 6. Actually I think there may be more registered for soccer than hockey.
