  1. Same. Went straight to the point. Reduce ticket prices, spend much more on marketing, with some ideas including TTC, more VIVA, and more malls than Vaughan Mills, don't ignore North York malls/youth clubs, etc etc.
  2. Murofushi has actually been universally acclaimed by most Y9 fans as one of our most consistent and solid players all season long. Didn't come with much reputation either, I doubt anybody thinks that much highly of the Singaporean top flight. Cox is a really interesting situation. My friend and I have wondered if there's a medical condition that's keeping him from flying or something, because off the top of my head, I can't remember him having played much or even making the bench for away trips. Somebody else can take the time to check on the lineups if they wish, this is straight off the top of my head. If I were to make any suggestions to this team from Y9, based on the season as a whole, I think most Y9 fans would join me in pointing towards Porter and Di Chiara in particular. Not great technique or ball control from either of them, to say the least.
  3. No way? Damn that's amazing! Useless TSN, and goddamn friggin Sportsnet.
  4. Great to to hear you and your son had a good time. Not surprised at all that most of the parents on your son's team hadn't heard of the league, that's the vibe I get from the vast majority of my soccer-playing friends, I'm usually the one they first hear it from. To really reach the majority of soccer fans across the country, I still think and hope that CPL has got to get its game of the month onto TSN eventually rather than CBC. There are a lot of sporting events outside of soccer that I wouldn't hear about normally that I hear about simply from the commercials on during a TFC game on TSN or smth. And what you said about Pacific also reaffirms for me how stupid the CPL marketing team was to not include the city names in the club names. Nearly everybody I've talked to about CPL agrees on that point.
  5. Ben Z's promised it numerous times, that's all I got, but I don't think he's been the most reliable source at all lol, too biased in all of this obviously.
  6. Oh yeah, but the retention rate and the usage rate for real. As in, how much of that business revenue will keep coming back year after year. And, how many of the season seats bought with these business partnerships are actually using their tickets and buying some booze and hot dogs or whatever it is at the stadium. I only buy booze so I dont know what food they sell I honestly just loved the Wednesday game vs the Impact, and I hope we have regular fans keep coming back, they are what's going to drive this club forward.
  7. I'd assume the retention rate and the usage rate for businesses would be far lower than regular old fans with respect to season seats, that goes without saying. I'm totally happy Y9 got all the business sponsorship money, but anybody here who thinks that relying on that as a long-term viable strategy that makes up for a lack of regular old fans is deluding themselves and/or making excuses for the club. Y9 already has sent out emails to SSHs, asking them to come out and actually use their tickets. I'm glad lots more did so last Sunday and last Wednesday. I don't mean you obviously btw red card. I just want to say that to anybody that believes that, which I hope is nobody here. We all saw last Wednesday that cheap ticket prices brings all the people out, and I hope we have a far more robust season base of regular old fans next season for sure.
  8. The grass is not a big loss, especially for fans. What's great is that the pitch is being widened and the track is going to be gone, looks way better on tv and from the main stand.
  9. To be absolutely fair, it's something that we all sadly do quickly at the majority of the Y9 games. For all the crazy hype from Wednesday, it's been overall not pretty to see in most of the games before that. Us in the GTA absolutely have to do a better job of getting ourselves and our friends out, myself included.
  10. On the Y9 side, the crowd yesterday most definitely felt like 5,000. Nearly broke my thumb shaking the metal stands lol, still on a CPL high from yesterday. Last night was a perfect combination of Montreal coming into town, which pretty much all Y9/TFC/GTA soccer fans are in unison united against lol, and the $9 (or the $14 lol) tickets. We all know the prices were set too high for season seats for the regular season, and we can all see how many fans will come out when the tickets are priced at the level it should be. And Mtl of course lol. I'm 100% sure that Ben Z, the Y9 VP who's in charge of ticket pricing structure, got that message yesterday for sure. Also saw both PB and Clanachlan in the stands overlooking the crowd as well. Great night.

  12. That's brilliant. No surprise at all that Vaughan Mills will be the base of the fanbase of this team. I'm totally okay with free tickets, I'd much rather see the stands packed than anything else. The club knows it's got to hit up Yorkdale as well, and maybe Fairview. They should also hit up Wonderland lol. This game is the launching pad for this club to move forward with, I truly believe in it now.
