    Could go halfway between Toronto and Vancouver and hold it in the Hammer (ok maybe not exactly halfway).  Bob Young does own the Canadian Premier League after all.

    and that cpl don't act like idiots. they'll have won as long as they don't over play and do something stupid like charge a $20m fee or some idiotic crap like that (they don't do that....i assume)

    While pleased he's still actively promoting his Canadian roots, I think it's best to just accept he's not coming. Even if the rules were changed, he's managed to earn 6 caps for Italy, including a pair in official matches.

    yes i touched on this. i said that fury would likely have to do certain things including possibly bringing on a cpl approved partner. in addition how do they prove then unless there is an outline set? if the fury reach out it will be up to the cpl to actually be clear about what is needed.
    cpl does have most leverage but the fury do have 2 key things that would make entering the market easier for cpl and the cpl should not go all dumbass machiavellian otherwise they could sorely delay an ottawa team

    it's a generation in and with only 3 teams who have fostered some solid talent including tabla and davies, given dudes like osorio a place to go pro that didn't exist prior. you sound blinded by an irrational hate. the cpl is designed to fill gaps left in development that cannot be covered by 3 teams. csl had what a dozen teams at its peak? did you actually expect canada to be a top 3 concacaf team with only 3 teams? no right? maybe it's time to realize the cpl isn't here to replace mls because the mls is doing fuck all but rather meant to fill a void.
    now for the love of satan can we leave this fucking thread to broadcast news shit instead of this moronic crap.

    gonna try and predict what happens here, if wrong oh well
    in light of everything the fury will reopen talks prior to their sanctioning (in say july) in an attempt to avoid the fiasco of last winter, potential legal fees from said fiasco, and the risk of competition. the cpl, while annoyed with them, will be open to chatting, because the fury remain the easiest way into the market, but will continue to seek outside investors for an ottawa cpl club. in the end an agreement will be reached, possibly with the fury making some management changes (jdg either sacked or demoted) and maybe with an outside investor buying a stake in the club, for the fury to join in 2021 with their roster sort of liquidated but the branding intact.
    in the end this is a business, as ansem points out, and this is the best route for both parties. oseg get to keep their soccer team (which they've invested in heavily) going and cpl gets the easiest entry into the ottawa market and the best stadium in the city.
    this conclusion makes sense but it's canadian soccer so i wouldn't be shocked if it doesn't happen.

    their  airbnb host cancelled and they were only refunded $94 of their $11,000 payment. they realized it was just cheaper to cancel their sunwing tickets and play against the local university teams than booking another airbnb

    Chiming in here gents. We can't sit back and pretend MLS is bad for Canada. That's an unfair narrative, perhaps because we're all fanboy-ing so hard about the CPL. I'm super stoked to switch much of my soccer investing into a Canadian league, but if MLS didn't exist I would not have this decision to make. CPL is, without a doubt in my mind, the result of MLS' success. Proving that soccer can garner tons of attention in Canada - specifically our 3 biggest markets -  is why we are willing to start a league and test smaller teams in smaller markets. 

    Is it fair to say that the MLS teams will make it harder for CPL to compete in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver? Yes of course, however if those teams weren't there then there would be no CPL to compete with them anyway. 

    However I also don't think calling the MLS an American league is shitting on the MLS is any way. That is a factual statement. The MLS IS an American league, and while the three best Canadian teams of all time play in that league, it is still an American league. The roster rules favour American players, and the expansion plans don't include Canada. 

    Talking factually about the MLS isn't bashing it. Pretending we never needed the MLS is disingenuous. 

    We have the MLS to thank for the league we're all excited about, as well as our current National team which seems to be on the up-and-up. 

    Now let's strive to build a soccer product that can compete with the American league. In the short-term though (and likely the medium or long term) it is foolish to think we need (or want) to displace the 3 MLS teams.
