    Rintaran got a reaction from ironcub14 in York9 - Season Thread 2020   
    Just reloaded my page, nothing is hidden...
     
    I hate getting into this OT shit, but:
     
     
    I will say that UT was not temporarily banned for the above reasons. He was temporarily banned for harassment, bullying, and issuing threats.
    He was restored under the understanding that these actions would be discontinued, and, after some huffing & puffing, they have. I generally enjoy his viewpoints as they provide a welcome counterbalance (most of the time).
    I don't really want to go further into this. IMO, it's water under the bridge. I wish UT saw it the same, but I can take his baseless jabs.

    To go back to Y9 for a second, the reason I enjoy reading but never do expected starting lineups before the season is that there are just way too many surprises and unknown variables and fierce competition for the spots.
    Just to take one example, we started the 2019 season with Telfer and Porter as our wingbacks in a 5-3-2. We ended the 2019 season with Abzi and Doner solidly ingrained as our fullbacks in a 4-3-3, with Telfer as our main winger and Porter as one of our CMs. The team changed dramatically over the year.
    It likely won't since this is the club's 2nd season obviously, but who knows how some of those competitions for the spots may end up coming out in preseason and over the regular season? Looking forward to the preseason fixtures for sure. Maybe we'll even get to watch them this time around.

    I believe that the two guys who seem overly bothered by the words 'inclusive' and 'identify as' should go seek therapy somewhere else so we can move on from this manufactured faux rage.

    They can use whatever words they want. Free country. If the words "inclusive" and "identify as women" upset you, that's nobody's problem but yours. Everybody should mind their own business.
    Some of you are surprised that solitary women feel threatened and uncomfortable surrounded by a bunch of drunk idiots capable of disappearing into a crowd? Try imagining the world from a different perspective sometime.
    Good for you, ladies. Shut off the comments section and do what makes you happy.

    Rintaran reacted to Kent in CONCACAF League and Champions League Club Indexes   
    Previously I tried to make a unified Club Index table to show what things might look like if the Club Index was used to determine how many slots for each country went into each of CONCACAF's 2 club competitions. Due to recent changes to these competitions I can't gracefully put them together anymore. I believe their intent is to have one index for the CCL and a separate index for the CL. For example "HON1" will have a different score in CCL than it has in CL. Points accumulated by HON1 in the CL won't help them in CCL, and vice versa (going forward). So I decided to start a new thread to have what I think is an accurate counting of the points how CONCACAF counts them and leave the other thread in case I ever care to share one of the several possible unified tables I have come up with (I'm not very satisfied with any of them though). I'll update the tables below at least after each round, and possibly more frequently. The orange lines through the tables show the division of pots, and the green line through the CL table shows the cut off for getting a bye past the preliminary round. The rows that are struck out indicate that the team representing that slot has been eliminated from the current competition.

    Rintaran reacted to IAmPappy in The Belt & The Boot   
    UPDATED: Changed the names to Championship Belt and Championship Boot. Clarified and simplified a bunch of text. Thanks Lofty for the Boot name idea.
    If you’re not familiar with the “Championship Belt” concept, check out the current World Football Belt Champion. In a nutshell, it’s just like professional boxing or pro wrestling. The defending champion, who is the current holder of the Championship Belt, defends the Belt at every match until another club defeats the champion. At that point, the Belt changes hands, and a new reigning champion is declared.
     
    The CPL Championship Belt: The Rules
    Pacific FC became the very first club to lift the CPL Championship Belt on 28-Apr-2019 when they registered the very first outright victory in Canadian Premier League history. A Belt Match occurs each time that the defending champion has a competitive match against another CPL club. Competitive matches include Canadian Premier League matches, Canadian Champion (Voyageurs Cup) matches, and (future) CONCACAF matches, but does not include friendlies or exhibition matches. The Belt only changes hands if the challenger registers an outright victory, regardless of method or duration (ex. PKs after extra time). Any draw goes in favor of the defending champion, who retains the Belt. Below is a list of all Belt Matches in 2019.
     
    The CPL Championship Belt: 2019 Highlights
    The first ever CPL match (27-Apr-2019, Forge v York9) resulted in a draw, so the Belt remained unclaimed until the next day when Pacific defeated Wanderers. There were 35 Belt Matches in 2019; 32 in the CPL, and 3 in the Canadian Championship. The Belt changed hands 11 times in 2019 and was held at some point by every club in the CPL except Wanderers (despite 6 attempts). Cavalry and Forge dominated 2019 equally, each with 18 Belt Match appearances, each with 13 Belt Match victories/defenses, and each now a 3-time Belt Holder. Forge FC are the defending CPL Belt Holders going into the 2020 season. The table below shows summary statistics for the Belt during 2019. 
     
    The CPL Championship Boot: The Rules
    The Boot is the ying to the Belt’s yang. The CPL Championship Boot is not something that you want your club holding onto for too long. The Boot is always held by the loser of a Boot Match and is held by that club until they defeat another CPL club and give them the Boot.
    Wanderers became the very first club to get the Boot on 28-Apr-2019 when they registered the very first outright defeat in Canadian Premier League history. A Boot Match occurs each time that the Boot Holder has a competitive match against another CPL club. Competitive matches include Canadian Premier League matches, Canadian Champion (Voyageurs Cup) matches, and (future) CONCACAF matches, but does not include friendlies or exhibition matches. The Boot only changes hands if the Boot Holder registers an outright victory, regardless of method or duration (ex. PKs after extra time). Any draw goes in favor of the Boot Holder’s opponent, and the Boot Holder retains the Boot. Below is a list of all Boot Matches in 2019.
     
    The CPL Championship Boot: 2019 Highlights
    The first ever CPL match (27-Apr-2019, Forge v York9) resulted in a draw, so the Boot remained unclaimed until the next day when Wanderers lost to Pacific. There were 30 Boot Matches in 2019; 28 in the CPL, and 2 in the Canadian Championship. The Boot changed hands 9 times in 2019 and was held at some point by every club in the CPL except Cavalry (blocking it on 4 occasions). Pacific played in the most Boot Matches (14) and held the Boot going into 9 of those matches (tied with Valour). Pacific is also the only 3-time Boot Holder. On 6 occasions during 2019 (highlighted in grey), a Belt Match was also a Boot Match, but each time the Belt Holder prevailed, so we have never seen both honours change hands in the same match. On the last day of the 2019 season, the then-Holder Pacific defeated Valour, effectively giving Winnipeg the Boot for the off-season. Going into the 2020 season, Valour FC are the CPL Boot Holders (my club ☹).  The table below shows summary statistics for the CPL Boot in 2019.
     
    Going into the CPL 2020 Season:
    Holding the Belt: Forge FC. Holding the Boot: Valour FC.

    f they go 4 teams, I'd want to see a Page Playoff system they do for our national curling championships. Team in 1st would get 2 home games too, so it rewards the team winning the league. And if you finish 3rd or 4th, you need to win 3 straight games.

    Hey @Lofty, could you stop posting these trophy images? You've made your point and are starting to move toward the realm of trolling (which I'm hoping isn't your intention). The images don't really add anything to the conversation and just prevent one from continuing further, like the proposed open letter to the league/governor general.
