    It's been decades since I reffed, but my take was that the infringing team does not get the advantage.  If the team defending the kick infringes and the ball does not go in, the kick is retaken.  If it goes in, the goal stands.  If the team taking the penalty kick infringes and the ball goes in, then the kick is retaken.  If a goal was not scored, the kick is not retaken.  The penalty for the infringement should not make the other team worse off.

    a team-mate of the player taking the kick infringes the Laws of the Game: • the referee allows the kick to be taken • if the ball enters the goal, the kick is retaken • if the ball does not enter the goal, the referee stops play and the match is restarted with an indirect free kick to the defending team from the place where the infringement occurred.


    This is out of the FIFA rules of the.game on page 49. Pretty much self explanatory.

    Is Mohammed even registered for the first team? This was the issue with Peruzza signing. He cant be used this season. Likewise maybe Dunn? Dunn does at least appear on the TFC roster page. It seems hard to find the official registered roster anywhere.

    I don't have a huge problem with this signing. Mohammed didn't impress with the Eddie's. It keeps Ritchie on the right rather than flip flopping, although they know he can play there at a push. This is a point where the academy doesn't have someone that can bridge the gap at this point. Not going to defend the lack or minutes or loans for some other Canadians in the squad though. Okello especially has to get out somewhere.




    Looks like they still a spot on the senior roster.

  3. Just watched Ivan Mamic's game with NK Medjimurje of the Croatian 2nd league on you tube(pretty quiet at work today). He played the 1st half as a DM and moved to CB in the 2nd. Looked apprehensive at first, but was more comfortable as the game progressed. Has good size for a CB although he might lack speed. The game ended in a 2:2 draw.

  4. Interesting reply to another politician
    reminder that Erin O’Toole is publicly committed to defunding the type of refugee settlement programs that allowed Alphonso and his parents to come here

    Congratulations to Alphonso Davies, 1st Canadian international to win a men's @ChampionsLeague title. What an inspiring story - from a refugee camp to to a championship! twitter.com/alphonsodavies…

    The only thing all say about this is that being that the CPL has only just completed it’s very first season I think both  of the sports networks are taking a wait and see attitude towards it. However , yes this doesn’t explain why then TSN was showing the XFL and that’s even stranger showing the XFL when they have a big contract with the CFL. Also keep in mind Canada has two domestic pro basketball leagues and both these leagues are not televised on any of the two sports networks, moreover, just like the CPL I’ve hardly ever seen any type of highlights of both basketball leagues on either of the two networks. One can argue that basketball is just or more popular than soccer in Canada after witnessing how the whole country got behind the Raptors during their championship run, with TV numbers that I’ve never seen for any type of soccer including, woman’s World Cup, men’s World Cup or any other type of soccer competition.

    TSN is partially owned by ESPN and they carry a lot of ESPN programming.

    Found a webpage about the 1983 CPSL that's worth a look:


    "Owner: Dr Antun Pavelic" no doubt raised a few eyebrows at the time for people who know a bit about WWII in the Balkans. Had no idea that London and Kitchener teams had been in the works for that.

    He was a dentist. Pretty sure he is still alive.

    I was wondering about this. I grew up in BC, so I wasn't sure what the youth soccer schedule looks like here in the GTA. I was assuming the majority of the games would be on weekend afternoons. It's not eh? 

    All those under the age of 12 that are playing"competive"(developmental) soccer play in what OSA calls festivals.These festivals are played on Saturday mornings and afternoons. That is the main reason a friend who lives in the area only made it to 1 or 2 games last year. Pretty sure that OPDL plays most of the games on weekends.
