  1. I wonder about ways to have a few higher profile Canadians playing in the CPL, players such as Hamilton, Jackson-Hamel, Wright, and others. I decide to write a note to CPL Commissioner, Clanachan. I suggested: 1) The CPL negotiate a player sponsorship/salary deal with each of the Canada's largest banks, these being (in no particular order) Royal, BMO, Scotia, TD, CIBS, Desjardins, National, and HSBC. 2) Each bank would adopt one CPL club and sponsor an agreed upon percentage of the team's player salaries. A ceiling might be set at $150,000.00, or thereabouts, per season sponsorship.
  2. Those two misses, especially the second one were mind boggling. Sinclair is on the decline, but she would have buried at least one of those opportunities. Wow!
  3. Which CPL clubs still have definitive needs in their rosters and on the pitch? Which Canadian players are still out there who might fill those needs?
  4. Maybe the entire TFC roster gets its two vaccinations and can then move freely across the border. At least that would solve the long term bubble requirement for vaccinated players.
  5. I am certainly in favour of CPL clubs taking on loans of Canadian players from MLS clubs. I agree that the CPL club should pay Cheeta's 50% +$1 of the players salary. I do not think that applying the entirety of the loanee's salary against the CPL club's cap serves any positive purpose particularly if the purpose of loaning the player, say Dunn from TFC to a CPL club, is to develop the abilities and value of Dunn and increase the level of the play in the CPL. The number of loanees on a CPL club could be limited to, say, three as Cheeta suggests, but I am much more interested in young Canadian
  6. Well, we are all in agreement that James needs minutes in a decent league. Sitting on anybody's bench in Europe will not improve the standard of playing for James. Minutes!
  7. We have not even seen Kennedy in a CMNT camp, so this might be premature.
  8. The key thing being minutes played which are very low for Jame in Denmark. I think that the CPL would be a good thing for James in the way it was for Waterman. Can James be better than Waterman? Probably, but he needs a reset and minutes on the pitch. Plus, the CPL needs some better players to raise the standard for the youngsters.
  9. Perhaps James should request a loan to a CPL club where he can play and have, theoretically, a chance to dominate. Also, Herdman can keep a close eye on him. A standout CPL season could lead to an MLS or another European opportunity. At any rate, it is time to see if this guy can play. York would be the perfect club for James.
  10. I think that is is completely reasonable for the CSA to post a few tweets with updates. Takes 30 seconds per tweet. Not sure about the obvious reluctance.
  11. Is there an update anywhere in the "media"? Seems like a top secret operation!
  12. Macksam, are you in cahoots with Gareth Wheeler? 😁
  13. Very interesting read, Canadian Chuck! Thanks. I wonder, given the very large player pool in the US, if Ayo woul take on a real risk similar to that taken on by Teal Bunbury. As we all know, Bunbury played in a handful of games for the USMNT, then was dropped an never played international football again. He was simply crowded out by the large number of established and emerging US players. With Canada, Ayo would be a roster guy automatically, and a starter soon enough on the full CMNT. And, like Davies and David, Ayo would become a terrific role model for young Canadian players, especiall
  14. I thought that Edwards played well for MNUFC when he was on the pitch. Farsi and Pasher are names with which I can agree. Raposo is not ready IMO, and I do not know that much about M. Johnson. Another name I would like to see on a camp list is Mo Babouli.
  15. Yes, that is odd. Why not 90, or 80? Why 70? A scrimmage is a scrimmage after all.
