  1. As far a Pro/Rel within the CanPL. I think it's a completely moot point until you have at least 16 teams, then I think you can have an honest discussion. To be honest, I feel 20 is the magic number where you should split the league in half and institute pro/rel, but that's a long ways off. As far as Pro/Rel with MLS. Simply put, will never happen. There is no way MLS is going to let a Canadian side in on their revenue sharing without having also paid absurd dues via a franchise fee. They also aren't going to allow a club in that isn't part of the single entity. As far as moving the MLS t
  2. So....Forge ended up meeting quota, not breaking any rules....so.....does anyone else want to chirp in at how Forge is terrible, bad for player development and the scourge/bush maker of the league.
  3. I think Forge needs to first actually break the rule to start, they still have a game, there is a chance Maan will be ready, and if he's not...I suppose Forge could play an emergency tender for the minutes needed to meet the requirements (which I think would be awesome). That said, I fully agree a fine is not adequate punishment. Not sure what it should be. I think fine, point deduction and loss of U-Sports draft picks seems fair.
  4. I would think it would be more akin to the player on loan's entire salary counts towards the cap, regardless of if the CanPL or the parent is paying for it.
  5. Yeah, really apart from the one whistle which Bobby hilarious replied to, I thought she did very well.
  6. Hopefully we can try for at least one match and EndZone since I guess they have a patio now and were having a hard time getting the city to ok it.
  7. If this is in fact the case, and the runner up of the V.Cup doesn't get the CONCAAF league spot, I would frankly love it. I want to see Canada Soccer back scratching their league more and make the USSF scratch the Canadian sides more if they want them to remain there. It does make some sense though, given this year the Canadian MLS sides I'm to understand had a chance to poach some of the US's spots in the Champion's league this year, so giving them a second free ride given they already had a chance in their league. That said, I think it's a tall task for any CanPL team to conquer whoev
  8. Huge fan of Tissot, and really glad Ottawa's loss is our gain here. Seem to recall he was a fairly good set piece player for the Fury.
  9. I wouldn't go that far. I think for sure they have lost a step, but I wouldn't say they are the poorest. Too soon to tell who is going to contend for the Wooden Spoon.
  10. Ok, so pretty much at least one day would be dedicated just to getting onto the island if I used public transit, whereas if I rented a car, I could probably get there the day of arrival, but would obviously have to factor that cost vs the cost of an extra night's stay, of which I'm pretty sure the extra night will be cheaper. The core issue is flights from Hamilton to Abbotsford are dirt cheap ($210 round trip right now) which makes the trip possible. I am skeptical of getting another flight even close to that ballpark. Everything I find is around $300 one way to either Victoria or Vancouve
  11. Hey guys, serious question. I am considering making the trip out for the May game vs Forge, but really what it comes down to is cost and time. How easy/how much would it cost to get to the island from Abbotsford Airport via public transit. From what I can tell, the cheapest way is to take a shuttle bus for $20 from the airport to Scott Rd. Station in Surrey, and then take two buses to reach the ferry (which appears to be $3) and then the Ferry which is $18 to reach the island. Google Maps pegs this at a little over 3.5 hours to get to the Ferry terminal. Just wanted some input on this on
  12. My thought is you could have made a case for either Cavalry or Forge getting the bye and either choice would have been a right choice. However, now that you've established "The guy who did the best last V.Cup gets the bye/better treatment" that's the way it is, and should be sticked to. MLS getting the bye is accommodation to MLS's schedule, how much cash they are likely investing in youth soccer compared to the CanPL and how much more well established they are. When CanPL sides are drawing 10,000+ a game and beating MLS sides in the V.Cup consistently, then we open the discussion of all te
  13. I'd say Pacific has certainly narrowed the gap with signing Bustos, but how significantly, we will have to see.
  14. From my understanding, the Hamilton party will be running off of OneSoccer
  15. I was going to mention that location, given Melnyk was talking about putting the Sens there. I was going to ask, would a smaller, outdoor venue that would still allow the Ottawa Blue's Fest to continue at the location work?
