  1. Does anybody have any current membership numbers? It was at 336 a few days ago, I've been optimistically hoping they'd break 500 before the next club is announced.
  2. I like the name. Much better than C-League, which quite literally sounds third-rate.
  3. Pretty much. It's also not as though we don't have other equal or greater striking prospects in his age group.
  4. TFC loan Hamilton to CD Trofense in Portugal's D2
  5. A top flight league sounds great. I can't imagine a CFL backed league being anything less than NASL level at the top of the table and solid USLPRO toward the bottom. A good starting skill level with good stadia and marketing means I'm optimistic. CPL would be my preference. I can't see Canada League One having much allure to people who aren't already into the national soccer scene. They might even go with Canadian Soccer Premiership or some such, for CSP. Hell, maybe we'll have a league sponsor a la the Barclay's? BMO Canadian Premier League, perhaps?
  6. Thanks for bringing that into the thread. Actually pretty exciting stuff, and plausible when you consider that with the roster sizes being smaller, reduced costs for equipment, and smaller coaching staff you could run a pro soccer team of similar quality to the CFL for only a fraction of the cost.
  7. I think you're actually highlighting the issue here though: We don't want to be Wales to America's England forever. It's great we have some Swanseas and Cardiffs in MLS and NASL, but adding in a supposedly "top flight" league parallel to those is just creating another CSL (not the 1987-1992 one, either).
  8. So...your comment about people not reading the article in mind, where was that distinction made in the article, at all? Because people in this thread have been discussing how ludicrous it is to call something either "1" or "1A" when you really mean "3".
  9. Apparently Janeil and DeRo scored last night.
  10. I wouldn't focus too much on the accent, he sounds more midAtlantic than faux-Scottish. My dad married a lady from Ireland they moved back to Canada and about four to six months later her family back home were asking her "Why are you talking like that?" on the phone. The kid's surrounded by Scottish accents, it'll impact the way he speaks.
  11. Yeah, the premier league style stadium and repeating ad nauseum that it will still be primarily a soccer facility with a focus on keeping the intimacy shows exactly that. It's not like they just dropped over $100 million on the club to make it competitive.
  12. I'm not sure why this NFL Toronto thing is expected to automagically destroy the Argos, the fanbase of which has to be at least 50% composed of people who would support the CFL over the NFL on principle and have strong emotional ties to the club; as well as TFC who're receiving significant investment and for all intents and purposes could someday fill a 40,000-seater with regularity. When you consider that the NFL Toronto series has been declining in popularity, drawing less than 40,000 last time. That's a pretty significant drop from how it began, and while an NFL team in Toronto would most likely be profitable, it seems a little silly to think that 1) those profits would dwarf the Argos and TFC combined in perpetuity 2) MLSE would simply decide that the additional profits from CFL and MLS was money they literally didn't want anymore.
  13. The Argos endzones will be under the retractable stands during soccer matches, so it's not really relevant to that.
