    I agree with him on this one. Diving in Soccer is an embarrassment to the sport and is one of the few things about the sport that needs to be fixed.

    Maybe I'm out to lunch here, but given the CPL's focus on having club names/branding/identities that truly resonate with each community and help tell their story, I don't see why they'd go with "Atletico" anything. I get that Atletico is the money behind this, but I feel like an extension of their brand would be a mistake. I'd much rather see Odawa (personal favourite), Bytowne or Rideau FC than another Chivas USA attempt.
    Sidenote: a hilarious tongue-in-cheek name would be Phoenix FC. References pro footie in the nation's capital rising from the ashes . . . and gives a shout-out to all the federal public servants *still* being affected by the Phoenix pay system fiasco. 😛

    Well one thing we know for sure is that its not MLS.
    Or else HFX taking free agents from Valour would require draft picks or fake money going back the other way.
    I'm happy CPL doesn't have those same stupid rules.

    I look forward to another team in Ottawa. It’s what’s best for soccer in this country.

    In the last 20 years we got 3 MLS teams, a Canadian league, and some of the brightest young talent we've seen in generations. I'd say that's some pretty significant growth.

    It was hard keeping the secret, but I am excited to announce that CanPL has been added to Football Manager as an official DLC!

    The DLC will be free and the link is forthcoming! Hoping that this provides a massive platform for fans to get to know the league and certainly will lend the league more legitimacy.
    For more information, see my tweet below.

    Side note: I will keep working on the megapatch - this just gives me more time to focus on the lower divisions

    Amazing! Will the official DLC be different in any way from the Megapatch? In any event, this is a big deal and I’m sure you must rightly be feeling pretty gratified. Good on you and thanks for making this happen.

    Total agreeement. It would be a huge mistake to get a great expansion windfall from an investor that isn't on-board with the goals of this CPL project. The damage a bad or short-lived owner could do to the league would out-weigh a few million or more dollars.
    Boiling the expansion discussion down to an expansion fee amount misses the point. The league is doing a lot more due diligence than that. The league is looking for partners in their project first and foremost.

    Hard to believe they would go from a rumored 1.5- 2million in year 1 to 9 million in year 2, and if true it would be excessive.

    Yes, Cavalry proves this point. Plenty of former Foothills players playing at the amateur level that are clearly good enough for pro. What the hell was Carducci doing at the PDL level?
    Not to mention that PDL has had other Canadian  teams perform well, KW United and Thunder Bay Chill. CPL was sorely needed. Plenty of promising players were falling through the cracks.
    15 teams seems to be the maximum to me. But who knows. With more pro teams, more and more youth players will consider staying in soccer rather then choosing other sports.
    You can now dream of Canada becoming a real soccer nation.

    Canada has a giant pool of players.  One this this CPL season has shown is how many people slip through the cracks.  
     
    Because we’re adding teams over time it allows the player pool to adjust to a certain extent.
    I suspect that we can get to 10-12 teams no problem without diluting the product.  I think more than say 14 or 15 and we will be digging pretty deep.
    Lets see how many people the BC League 1 develop and maybe a Alberta League 1 as well.
