    Just filled out my volunteer form.  I may be doing some running around for a team in isolation while here.  Figured I should probably contribute.

    I personally don’t want the logo, name, or identity to change. I like it.

    I feel good about the team taking it all. But we'll see how all the new boys gel with each other. Love the depth though that's huge.

    I might be in the minority here, but I think every single away kit looks better than their home kit. I absolutely love the York 9 map. All three blue & black kits look great, too.

    I like the set up.. I really like the 2nd round of 4 teams. That should produce some good games
    I'm also excited for a place like PEI to get some shine. It looks like a lovely place
    VCup in front of fans in October. One can dream

    They should have went straight to the knock out stage after the round Robin.
    I guess its ok because it means a few additional games.

    I heard any of the subscriptions given out with the season tickets will be expired on Aug 10 before the tournament starts.... CPL's way of saying thanks for hanging in to season ticket holders who have been in limbo for months?   lol

    I’m pretty excited about this new Spaniard... I know his stats don’t say much of anything, but he was a RM product (which definitely counts for something) and is still relatively young. He could be interesting for sure, we’ll see in PEI in a few weeks!

    Longest contract ever given to 16yo Lowell Wright. He's a big kid, and I assume they are going to nurture him.

    Yah oddly the MLS medical folks felt it was necessary to wear a mask while talking in to a tv camera but sharing food with your bare hands was all good. I guess that's what they mean by "Health Experts"

    I mean I guess it also wouldn't be a problem if the whole world was as stringently tested then vetted before they share the doritos either. 😛 
    In terms of the never ending wait for a CPL announcement the more steady flow of info about signings at clubs over the past week or so is a good sign things are closed to getting ready to roll. Just hope we can get back to watching CPL sooner rather than later.

    You know what's interesting with the thousands and thousands of soccer games that have been played not a single covid case has been traced to playing soccer. Maybe if the whole world just played football and stopped sharing bags of Doritos the world would be a better place. Definitely fitter and less cranky

    To be fair to CPL,  MLS did have a bum buddy with crazy deep pockets in ESPN/Disney who was willing to do whatever and has the ability to tweek public perception and public backlash
    CPL has been dealing with provincial governments which ain't fun in the best of times and almost all they care about is public perception

    Watchmen, I have a red pill that I really want to administer to you, but I have to warn you....it is a dose of truth that is going to hit you really hard. You will have a vulgar reaction to it like most people when confronted with something that changes their worldview, shatters their perception of things....when the brainwashing and conditioning becomes unraveled, or rewired I should say. You will curse me and call me names like Grizzly and a few others have when similar doses of truth were administered by myself. It will not be a pleasant journey, but I will be by your side while you take it. It will bring us closer together. It will be a bonding experience. 
    All you have to say now is either "I am in" or "I am out"

    You know... it’s not tacky just because you sanctimoniously pronounce it to be. Who gets to decide what’s worthwhile? You? Please, let me know when it’s okay to break the rules, you seem to get to decide. I’m not going to get into the politics of the protests/riots here, but even if you think that the protests are the greatest thing since sliced bread, that’s your opinion. I guess the rules only apply when you think they should. Everyone else who wants to disobey them must be a tacky *******, how can they possibly know what’s right like you do?

    To be fair, the virus doesn’t care about how noble or worthwhile one’s social (or mass) gathering may be. The horse is out of the barn. There’s no sense in pretending that we can do much more than take individual responsibility for healthy practices at this point. Weeks on end of protests, as well as riots (in the US at least) have ended lockdown and quarantine as a viable solution imo.

    I’m flattered that I have a ‘card’. 
     
    Assume whatever you’d like about my politics, but you’ll notice that I never bring it up first. This time, I responded to a string of partisan childish (and alarmingly immoral - wishing physical harm ‘Karma’ on someone) attacks on another poster. 
     
    There were a million other ways to critically respond to sportsflu’s post, but I took issue with the reflexive personal attack. I don’t actually agree with him (completely anyways) but I’m against the silly and ad hominem nature of some of the comments against him. Criticize his statement. There’s no need to **** on Americans, insult a politician who had nothing to do with the present comment being rebutted, and wish him ‘karma’.

    Kurt Larson seems to be falling out with CanPL twitter by expressing the opinion that MLS teams are unlikely to lose over two legs to CanPL opposition any time soon.
    Suspect he's right because the MLS teams won't take them so lightly in future after the Whitecaps and Impact found out that the quality of teams like the Cavalry and Y9 is definitely fully professional, but time will tell.
    Suspect he's also doing this because it's difficult to keep people talking about the league in the absence of a tournament announcement and there's only so many zoom interviews people will watch before it starts to get old.

    Forget the protests.
    Evidence,  from many sources, shows that outdoor transmission is very low.
    That, along with everything else reopening, is enough to think that is a reasonable way to have fans in stadiums this year. 
    Might be with low capacity, might be with mandatory masks, might be some other compromises. But it should be able to happen.
