    mediapro is handling the onesoccer app and they are a multi-billion dollar organization that is actively planning a french broadcast for next year when they go into france. the letter seems more "wtf seriously?" than anything because they're already in quebec. i think the combo of not having it yet but also knowing they're doing it because of a somewhere else getting it in the future would piss anyone off
    also i do disagree with the end, if you have an issue with the league you have ever right to voice it and the french language thing valid and it is kind of stupid that it's the case as a fifth of the nation speaks it as their mother tongue and it's in the dark

    Nah B, they're Yankees fans, Montreal isn't more anti-American
     
    Serious question: Does anyone know if the venues are buying the rights to host like one does for the Gold Cup?

    different degrees of fans. for some, i see no real issue with casual fans being late but do see an issue with adjusting start times. movies don't do it

    i think the n.a. trend of giving coaches time continues with cpl don't see any sacking until after next season unless a team has a 7 game losing streak

    This convesation went as follows
    You: Victoria is a meh media market
    Me: It is part of the 3rd largest in the country
    You: NO
    Me: Yea it's dumb but industry sees it that way
    You: That doesn't count
    Me: It's what most organization look at. It's dumb but it's a thing
    You: NO. FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE TRUMPS ANY MEDIA RESEARCH FIRM
    Like shit you're just attacking for the sake of attacking rather than just acknowledging that that fact exists. I've worked in this section and nationally and internationally they are looked at as a single market when discussing TV and radio. They 100% did their homework and it is something they are aware of.

    As OneSoccer develops, I would really like them to break more news, especially around injuries. What is the deal with Staro? How long is he expected to be out? Those sorts of things. Don't just tell us he is injured and didn't make the trip. We want more than that. The more information the better. It allows for more 'water cooler' talk as well between fans.

    this is true but caution needs to be there. if you're just handing out teams to southern ontario cities to reach 16 teams in 2026 then something is wrong.
    just to note
    - moncton
    - quebec city
    - montreal
    - st. john's
    - saskatchewan
    - mainland bc
    - ottawa
    those are 7 markets that have had rumours that are also largely their own media markets that also often happen to be commerce or government capitals for their provinces (9 of 10). add gta2 and you have 15 teams. it's not hard to avoid clustering the first 16 teams too much, it might take time but it very well could be the safer route.

    what? http://canmediasales.com/canada-101/canadian-media-stats/
    we can argue if what is a market makes sense or is practica lor not (i think we'd agree, see me saying hamilton as part of toronto is dumb) but what defined as the market is largely set. it having blah media of its own does not erase that it is part of the 3rd largest media market. i don't know why you are acting liking it does. I'm not arguing the quality, I'm saying it is factually a part of something.

    In all seriousness, I also agree that they are all safe, unless a team slides into a severe winless streak and fans being to mumble loudly. Thing is, from what we have seen so far, the league has relative parity and it is not clear who is going to come out ahead yet at all.

    i know, just being a little exaggerating there. also no, i'm saying be a little selective. i do think there will be 5 teams in southern ontario in that first but what i would be concerned about i think the league should avoid is having 6-9 teams of the first 16 in the region due to history, unstable media markets (as mentioned some are being merged or under consideration for merger), the league's goals, and image.

    the budgets are not likely that high as the $200m was being shared with the csa. it's also an amount that would drop with more teams
