  1. The way I see the wage issue is this. The owners wanted to create a league. It's difficult to know how much you can afford to spend before knowing how much money you can make back. They dipped their toe in the water for year 1, then after year 1 COVID turned the water into a lake of lava and they pulled their toe back 25%. I'm glad they are patiently waiting by to try their toe again when it returns to water.
  2. The 4 opposing players that put their hand up obviously don't know, HUTCH WAS ONSIDE!!!
  3. Mostly correct. If I remember correctly, in Soccernomics they said that hosting makes sense if you have the infrastructure already, or you need the infrastructure that would be built for the event. Qatar is an extreme example of a place that will lose oceans of money. It's a small country that doesn't need 10 40,000 seat stadiums, or whatever it is they are building for it. Those will be a bunch of white elephants no doubt. Maybe 1 national stadium type can get some decent use. For Canada, our cities should have the capacity for the people. We don't need to create hole new subway systems
  4. I don't think they got any press, but I remember scoreboard watching the CSL when TFC played their U19 academy team there (before TFC II existed, and before the CSL match fixing scandals got the league desanctioned). One year I think his name was Stefan Vukevic lead the league in scoring and I thought that meant he would have a future with TFC. The next year Mark Wadid lead the league in scoring and I thought that meant he would have a future with TFC. I don't think either of them actually got close. Jury is still out on this new class until they start producing at the pro level. Even all
  5. I like reading these threads after games that I have no idea what happened in. It's like a puzzle trying to figure out what might have happened, what the score might have been, etc. Fun times.
  6. I missed a pretty big chunk of the game today, but this team still doesn't show much promise offensively. Things should be helped with Lawrence and Huitema in the lineup, but it's definitely something that needs to be improved.
  7. Great news that Barrie's got their L1O team now! I'm not too happy about a potential 2nd team though to split the fanbase. It's already hard enough to get fans out to games in L1O, I think it would be easier if they could be united under one team. But I have no idea why the split happened or which team would be the better option for L1O. I hope it all works out for the best!
  8. While it would be great if the game could be in Canada, this is at least encouraging that the game will likely happen. Next we wait and see who is allowed to come play, and then we wait for the game to actually happen.
  9. I would rather it be an all CONCACAF tourney.
  10. Yeah, I figure either the missing part is missing deliberately to allow some "creativity" or it's just complex enough that they couldn't be bothered to write it out to share with everyone. I played around a bit last night on some guesses, and the more I think about it the more I think the best I can do is get in good guesses.
  11. That might mean something, and it might not. It's not like Feyenoord has 100% roster turnover every year to sign all their U19 academy team. For all we know he is there as a favour to his dad, who happened to play over 100 games for the senior team.
  12. Seriously though, this kid just turned 14? Too early to bother getting any hopes up.
  13. His dad was a MF too, and I'm not talking about the soccer position.
  14. OK, I finally got around to looking into how the CONCACAF rankings are calculated. It started out promising, with a formula, and some definitions of the variables in the formula, until we got to the last variable. They don't give enough information. https://concacaf-cloudinary.corebine.com/concacaf-production/image/upload/v1535044241/concacaf-prod/assets/Concacaf_Men_s_National_Team_Ranking_Overview.pdf "E = Expected result of the match The expected odds of a match are based on the ranking difference between the two teams and the home field advantage." It goes on to say that E =
  15. Not sure if I missed something, but if you legit can't find it, three dots on the top right of your comment.
