  1. NISA getting back on the field starting July 11th with the NISA Independent Cup" involving 15 clubs and includes an official sponsor, COVIDMD : https://www.nisasoccer.com/news/2020/07/01/nisa-independent-cup "The Independent Cup champions the spirit of the game, allowing talent to take the field and the beautiful game to shine on the pitch. It's the first of its kind where only independent clubs compete and one that our Fall to Spring schedule allows. We look forward to this being an annual event allowing both amateur and professional clubs to compete for the Cup in the true meaning of independent soccer.", NISA Commissioner John Prutch on the significance of the Independent Cup The Independent Cup will feature 4 Regions and 15 clubs culminating in 4 regional champions in its inaugural 2020 Cup. "The participating clubs have shown incredible determination and support for one another and the NISA Independent Cup. Their ownership of the process has resulted in a competition that serves the best interest of all clubs and exemplifies the unity of independent community-based clubs. I am so incredibly excited to continue to work with the NISA Board and their independent amateur brethren as the NISA Independent Cup will continue to evolve in future years.", said NISA EVP of Expansion Joshua Prutch."
  2. "Link spammers usually don't leave comments of any value along with their links." The definition seems to fit the parrot, other forums have a rule on link spamming, not sure about this one. The odd post here and there is ok but the spamming frenzie lately has led me to simply scroll past that content and ignore it.
  3. CFL needs fans allowed in the stadiums, which should be allowed at a level of 25% -50% (along with social distancing of course). CPL should push for the same. We're dealing with outdoor stadiums and with "experts" now saying little chance of coronavirus spread with the thousands of protests that went on recently outdoors, more the reason to push for it now and social distancing will be followed more at a stadium than it was (or wasn't) with these protests that were allowed even though they violated mass gatherings guidelines.
  4. USL announces its 16 game season format from July - October and one and done playoff matches, fans in attendance up to 50% Stadium capacity in some instances as well as LCFC announced, lets hope the CPL can take some cues from the D2 USL league and have some fan attendance at their home outdoor stadiums for matches after the tournament as well. The USL Championship announced on Wednesday an updated format for the remainder of the 2020 season that will see clubs divided into eight groups to complete a 16-game regular season followed by a single-elimination playoff. In order to limit travel, the regular season will see the Championship’s clubs divided into eight regionalized groups, and each team will complete a 16-game regular season. There will be five groups made up of four teams, and three groups made up of five teams to cover the 35 member clubs of the Championship. https://www.uslsoccer.com/news_article/show/1110593
  5. USL will be returning to the field in July, and at home stadiums not one or two central locations. Some of their teams will even have fans in attendance at some level, so paying for no play will not happen anyway and they knew this going in, not like a majority of their owners have deep pockets. https://www.uslsoccer.com/news_article/show/1108043
  6. More movement on allowing fans in attendance for sports as Florida and Alabama join Texas in allowing it : NASCAR announces plan to allow limited number of fans at 2 upcoming events "Officials for the Dixie Vodka 400 race will invite up to 1,000 South Florida service members as honorary guests, while Talladega Superspeedway will allow up to 5,000 guests in the frontstretch grandstands and towers for the GEICO 500, NASCAR said" https://www.kiro7.com/news/trending/nascar-announces-plan-allow-limited-number-fans-2-upcoming-events/CSOFM6XL7ZDPLM7TH45NJZYXEM/
  7. We also shouldn't pretend that 100% of what they do is wrong and close our minds off of something that may work and make sense going forward and study it. Some experts the last couple of days are now doing an about face and telling us that the virus doesn’t spread easily outdoors so there is much less chance of it spreading in the large amounts of people gathering outdoors in the thousands (providing they wear masks and social distance) when being asked about how these mass gatherings that violate the "no gatherings of over 50" may affect the spread of coronavirus.
  8. Things moving fast with major sports league's returning and now more talk of limited fans in attendance, hope CPL is allowed to introduce this in the near future, with social distancing in large outdoor CFL stadiums or even the clubs own stadiums it can work imo. Texas Allowing 25% Fan Attendance At Sporting Events https://www.usgamblingsites.com/news/texas-allowing-25-fan-attendance-at-sporting-events/ "According to Abbott’s new order, which was issued Thursday, outdoor stadiums will be allowed to host spectators at 25% capacity, which will allow for social distancing protocols to be adhered to."
  9. One thing not mentioned is if the proposed 25% cut is per game salary or the years salary. If your playing 11 games in a short season and not the full 28 game season you would expect not to be paid your full yearly salary. Troo-doh's wage subsidy goes till mid August only at the moment apparently.
  10. Lockdown or not re Sweden, may not have made much difference in the end and we will never know. Lockdowns can cause deaths as well as many have pointed out. BC had a similar non-lockdown plan they followed, as some others have. EPL and Series A coming back mid June, hope CPL makes it on the field in July!
  11. Vancouver shortlisted as a hub city for the NHL return today, an option for CPL as well possibly as BC re-opens more and more with many returning to work this week, schools opening June 1st, retail, restaurants, pubs, open already and Hotels and resorts opening in June. The province is doing well and never followed the lock down strategy, 11 cases only in the latest 24hr period and no deaths.
  12. Re Sweden, saw an interview a few days back on BBC where they interviewed Swedish epidemiologist Anders Tegnell - He talks about how there is immunity according to his discussions with scientists and how there's no documented re-infection of people who have had the coronavirus, only re-occurance since they carry it in their body. They were discussing how Sweden had done well overall not going into a lockdown and just using social distancing, getting fresh air and exercise to stay healthy instead of staying home and the detrimental lockdown effects on the health of people. They had a bit of an uptick in cases last week of April and first week of May but have slowly come back down in daily cases except for a few spikes here and there.
  13. Interesting to see the specifics of their plan. Wonder if the CPL players would be willing to take similar measures re wage cuts if the clubs play without fans throughout a shortened season, that may be a sticking point but we should see soon if that's the case.
  14. Not proven reliable or conclusive research yet and only a small sample of 100 patients : "The research has not been peer-reviewed or published in a medical journal" "Abbott rejected the findings, saying the researchers used the test "in ways that it was not designed to be used." "ID NOW is intended to be used near the patient with a direct swab test method," the company said in a statement. The company pointed to other independent study results that found the test accurately detected 90% or more infections." https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/coronavirus/u-s-fda-probes-accuracy-issue-with-abbott-s-rapid-virus-test-1.4940539 FDA has only said its investigating as of now.
  15. The USA and other nations have had rapid testing since middle of last month, unacceptable if our gov't is lacking in this regard, maybe their partnering with the ccp like they apparently are with the Cansino vaccine fiasco revealed the other day. Not sure what type of tests the UFC is using but they are doing 1200 tests this week that for their events last Saturday, last Wednesday, and tomorrows UFC Fight Night in Florida. CPL and the other league's will no doubt be looking at how UFC's handled being the first major sport to return to action : UFC's return could provide blueprint for other pro leagues https://www.tsn.ca/ufc-s-return-could-provide-blueprint-for-other-pro-leagues-1.1474424
