    Bison44 got a reaction from Bbeto in CPL Playing During the Coronavirus/Covid19 Pandemic   
    Pulling a random tweet out of the air to help push whatever BS narrative you are pushing is pretty weak.  There is enough pent up anger out there lately that Mr Parrot droppings could probably find someone blaming Trudeau, Trump, the Pope and aliens for whatever is pissing them off at the moment.  Why you would revel in the fact that some people are pissed at the CPL management is beyond me.  And of course you need to circle back around and make it about MLS vs CPL even though you piss and moan when anyone else does that. 
    Its been bad for CPL (along with every other sports league and 99% of other business), and most people are getting some sort of raw deal with the virus, either health wise or financially.  You acting all gleeful about a twitter ranter being pissed at CPL and using it to try and prove some point about MLS is just the usual BS you push around here.

    As some one else put it, its just good PR if nothing else.  Getting the people involved tested, is a no brainer for venture thats going to be in the public eye and have a lot of scrutiny on it.  
    Maybe I'm just an old grouch, but why are certain people posting random goobers from twitter complaining about ****??  And then wanting to argue with us about it on here.  Argue it on twitter where the guy is posting....if I wanted to read idiots on twitter and reddit I would be there and not here.  If its pertinent info go ahead, but do we really need clutter our board with twitter crazies?

    Yes, for sure.  But in addition to that, he'll also at least get Europa experience or, if everything goes well, Champions league experience!

    In any case, nowhere in the history of the game has a performance bonus been worked into a contract as a reduction in pay, "unless".
    It is always over and above the signed contract, always. No idiot would sign a contract if you had a discount on your contract for bad performance. The only exception I have ever heard of is where a player gets a clause saying his contract will be continued in case of relegation but the club has the right to lower it by a certain %, which is now fairly standard, all multi-year contracts build in a relegation provision. as relegation has a direct affect on revenue.
    It is very screwed up thinking and malicious for them to construe it otherwise, as a further pay cut, and then have people discussing how it fits in so nicely with the reality tv mode (where all bonues are fictional regardless). Assinine.

    I watch quite a bit of RPL and it's decent quality football at the top half. They stream free matches on YouTube. I support Zenit but I follow most of the Russian teams in Europe as well. It wasn't a good year for Russian football in Europe but like I said the top half of the table has some quality squads

    I'd love that group tbh. We'd have a way better chance at getting first than we would with Mexico or USA in the group. At the same time it's the most likely group we could choke and place 3rd in, but like you said we don't deserve a world cup if we can't beat those countries.
    I'm too scared of the Intercontinental playoff, even if it's New Zealand.

    At this point is there anyone else waiting in the wings?? Crepeau has had back to back good seasons first in USL and then at MLS.  Who else is actually playing at a decent level?? Leutwiler has barely played in the last 3 years, Pantemis and Carducci both need to have outstanding mini seasons in CPL before they would leapfrog anyone.  Someone else needs to step up soon because the zombie cant play forever and it would be nice to have a couple of choices for a replacement.

    Fire this thing up again.  Davies, Usain Bolt, Antonio Brown, JJ WaTT, Zatlan, Federer, Connar Macgregor, Micheal Phelps, Kevin Durant Ovechkin, McDavid and Rich Froning.  TSN doesnt have anything else on.  Davies would clean house. I can see him lifting the atlas stones against Rory mcelroy and Brad Gushue.

    Bayern definately play to his strengths. Most of the time he is free to run wild, knowing his speed will let him recover, and his CB are at home watching the henhouse.  If we expect our Vitoria/Jackovic/Edgar/James/Henry et al to cover for him against decent opposition it will get ugly like against the USA.  A smart coach would realize duplicating these exploits for Canada with our personel just isnt going work.  Play him at LB, but restrain his offensive game, or play at wing with a def LB behind him and sit another winger that Herdman wants to get into the game.  I dont think you can have both...until the CB position improves, and maybe not even then.

    Well first one leaves out Hoilet, second leaves out Arfield.  I know what your saying, but Herdman wants them all in, thats why he keeps sticking Davies at LB.  It'll end up being a situational thing, which is fine.  Its good to have versatile players like Davies, lareya, Miller that Herdman can move around a bit.  Its a luxury that we havnt had lately.
