  1. https://imaginanews.mediapro.es/rf/repo/OneSoccer/Final Mediapro Concacaf NL ENG.pdf From the press release: " From October, OneSoccer will boost its weekly grid with additional original content, including daily news programs, mid-week magazine shows, interviews, features and other formats."
  2. I'm pretty sure I admitted my ignorance on competition format/game calculation up front. But thanks for reminding me . . . I guess. I'd also like to see a single season, one table, home-and away set-up. As for extra games, I could see a short play-off series being done once we get to 12-16 teams (maybe the top six or eight teams in a single-elimination format?). My only qualification on that would be weather. If we continue to have the season run through late October, it'd be getting pretty chilly by the time a play-off series finished and a champion was crowned.
  3. Ok, I'm glad I'm not totally off base. I would hope they'd keep it a single table, but maybe that makes too much sense. I was pondering the other day about what sorts of stats I'd like to see for the league by 2026 (salary cap, attendance, etc.) and just blanked when it came to tallying the number of games in a season.
  4. Random question: when the CPL eventually hits 12 and later 16 teams, how many matches in a given season are we expecting (full campaign, not factoring in A/C split)? I was musing about some figures the other day and realized I have no idea how the number of matches would be calculated (never been great with keeping tournament formats straight). I imagine for 12 it'd be something like playing each other team three times for a 33 game season, then for 16 playing each other team twice for a 30 game season so things aren't unwieldy? Or am I out to lunch?
  5. If a professional sports team is a paying tenant at a stadium, I would hope it would get priority over a semi- or non-professional team. I recognize that IG Field is a U of M facility though, so I can see how it might be more complicated with their university football team. Still, the pointy ball teams using the facility have a reasonable expectation that their needs and conditions will be met. Valour should expect the same and then some. What happened on Saturday is completely unacceptable.
  6. Dear God, the pre-season match is on *Thursday*. That's plenty of time to switch the lines between the Monday match and then, let alone the Saturday match.
  7. This *cannot* be allowed, nor do I expect this to be the beginning of a trend. The CPL has been clear all along that gridiron lines are out of the question and it absolutely sends the wrong message about the importance of the league. The Ottawa Fury have had this same issue of sharing the pitch with pointy ball for years and with a handfull of exceptions (as in, can count on one hand the times it's happened), they've never allowed it to happen. As much as I love Winnipeg, there needs to be an explanation, an apology and a fine for this. Just brutal.
  8. So . . . the big KISS reveal was just a video at their concerts in Montreal and Toronto. 🤔 Well, that was overhyped for no reason.
  9. God, York 9's stadium looks sad on television. I'd kill for One Soccer to aim the camera at the main stand so it didn't look so empty.
  10. I noticed that the "reveal" (whatever it is) happens tomorrow, when KISS are set to play in Toronto. I've also taken a look at their touring calendar and noticed that they don't have anything for early November, sooooooooo . . .
  11. Anyone have an inkling as to what this is all about?
  12. Can someone explain to me how to toggle between the audio feeds on One Soccer (EN/FR and EN/ES), particularly for Roku? I'm currently watching the Cavs-Impact match and it somehow defaulted to French. I'm actually really enjoying it, but I figure I should know how this works.
  13. . . . huh. I guess complaining works.
  14. https://canpl.ca/article/watch-saskatchewan-supporters-chant-we-want-cpl-during-sk-vs-tfc-ii-tilt "Local supporters group Bridge City Firm was in full voice on the day, chanting “We want CPL” after the match in a call for expansion into the province . . . We see you, Saskatchewan." *crosses fingers*
  15. Eww. Well, I hope those lines can be scrubbed out easily enough for PFC matches.
