    Seriously.
    How do you sell a player for profit that didn't even play a single match for you.
    Its more likely fancy language for an agreed upon mutual contract termination

    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.

    grande reacted to Toronto Ruffrider in New away kits...   
    I was talking to my account rep about joining the Collective a couple of hours before the kit reveal, and he asked if I wanted a home or away kit for this season. I opted for the away kit, saying that I've never bought a jersey without having seen it first (I thought it would be good for a laugh). My rep said I could message him at some point in order to change kits if I didn't like the away kit being revealed.
    After having seen all of the away kits, I've got to say that that's a unique look. I'm going to keep my kit selection as-is. The electric green-on-black looks good, and if I bike to Lake Simcoe again, I won't have to worry about getting lost along the way.

    I'm once again blown away at how opinionated people are about kits. For me, it's so clearly subjective that I'm shocked when people scream bloody murder about it while there's hardly a peep about the actual footballing side of things most of the time. I would love if someone would explain why it means so much to them.
    BTW I like the Pacific kit, and I'll probably buy into this Collective thing instead of the OneSoccer subscription because of it.

    He was negative, but the behaviour towards him was what was toxic.  Honestly, if you were concerned about people coming here to learn about the CPL and 2026 bid, people's reaction to him always seemed much worse than anything he did.  Some of his stuff was (justly) criticized but there was definitely people who took it in to a personal realm.

    For sure none of this was ever going to be easy but this is just getting into the neighbourhood of embarrassing. 
    Yes, things are changing by the day but you don't get the feeling that the reason league HQ isn't communicating with the players is because of some malevolent anti-union bias.  It's feeling more and more like league HQ doesn't know what to communicate to the players because they have no effing idea what they're doing themselves.  There is no grand plan.  There is no strategy. Things are being made up as they go along.  They're flying by the seat of their pants.
    I don't mean for that to sound too harsh.  Maybe that's not such a bad thing.  The league and it's brain trust are still toddlers and these are really, really, weird times.  So yeah, I'll allow 'em some slack.  But still...DAMN.
    Manitoba is going into Phase Whatever starting this weekend.  No quartine for domestic travellers.  Mostly back to normal for most businesses with the default precautionaries (if you feel so inclined).  Zero reasons the league couldn't host a tourney here starting next week.  Zero.  Maybe the league is crossing it's fingers that re-opening will be echoed across the country?  Don't know.

    Indiana where they let fans into the Indy 11 game, there were 2,785 new cases yesterday vs. 102 in Ontario. I am not willing to let fans in here and risk an uptick. Not worth the risk.

    I'm not ready yet to write off the possibility of playing games with fans in seats in 2020, but we should not be looking to anything happening south of the border as a model for a restart.

    Posting random Twitter opinions because they support your narrative is borderline trolling.

    If the CPL had agreed to quarantine weeks ago, they wouldn't be having issues with the quarantine rules now. Why are they waiting until a province changes the rules? It's taken way more than two weeks to negotiate!
    If there are other factors, ok, I can understand. But what are they? And if there aren't any, why wait another month to have two week's quarantine waived? They could have been playing today.

    An angle to explore might be whether they need a screening only as opposed to regular testing approach to be able to make it fly financially. The expense of the latter made it a complete non-starter in Scotland in financial terms, while more lucrative broadcast deals made the numbers work in an English context.
    I suspect Novak Djokovic (Onesoccer announcers should note what happens phonetically to the D with the funny line through it in names like Didic) probably hasn't done sports bodies wanting the former sort of approach combined with no quarantines any favours with his Adria Tour event.
