    That ref should not be allowed to do another match in CPL. Cant have that kind of officiating in the regular season let alone the Championship. The players should decide the game not some 'gun slinging ego driven' ref

    You get some refs who do not apply common sense and do everything strictly by the book because an assessor may be watching.

    May have a solution for you. CBC games are available to watch directly after it streams. So if they are streaming Saturdays game it should be available directly afterwards.

    grasshopper1917 reacted to Gian-Luca in MLS is unhappy with the CSA   
    Purely out of curiosity, are you anticipating that the MLS teams will have their salary cap and cost structure grandfathered into the CPL's salary cap level, or are you imagining that the CSA is just going to tell the likes of MLSE "Don't worry, nothing is going to change there is no difference at all in the two leagues, but you do have to get rid of 95% of your players - even the ones still under contract - to fit in under the significantly-reduced salary cap - which shouldn't be a problem for you guys given that you will probably lose 95% revenue as well given that most of your existing fans will desert you, given the "high" attendance that the CPL has garnered up the road at York University"? I can imagine that the CSA just can't wait to have that conversation with the MLS teams....

    grasshopper1917 reacted to toontownman in Poll- Who's the first manager to get the boot?   
    I don't think you can really validate talk of sacking for being last in this first season. Thats EPL knee jerk trash talk and one of the worst parts of the modern game. There is no relegation. If we use that logic we might as well liquidate York and Edmonton because the crowds were abysmal and sack off some of the younger players that didn't perform as well as we hoped.
    It is still very early days and consistency is half the battle. If Halifax and Pacific win tomorrow there could be 2 points between 4th and last and Pacific could sit 4th.
     If it is as appears and he had lost the dressing room and players then he had to go. That is more than acceptable and will happen sometimes. All the managers brought their own vision to the clubs and they are going to need time, just like every other facet of the league. I am sure each manager/club has a 5 year plan for the squad and how everything should progress.

    I'd say there would be slight concern for some clubs (notably Valour FC and Pacific FC) and not much for others, but the format is likely part of it with clubs out of the race, and weather/scheduling contributing as well.
    Cavalry are only slightly down (2942 last 4 games vs 3276 average for the year) but the last game in the freezing temps was there low point at 1938 which brings it down.
    HFX is fine obviously, York9 attendance is actually up in the last 4 matches (2873 avg vs 2667 avg on the year).
    Edmonton down a few hundred per game on average.
    Pacific down over 600 per game last 4, with some poor attendances in that span of roughly 2000, 2100, and just under 2400.
    Valour has averaged 3878 its last 4 games and 3 of its lowest attendances were in the last 4 games and less than 4K.
    Finally, Forge is averaging over 5K last 4 games. Their soccer configuration is 10K and without the inaugural match, their highest was 7152, the only time they hit 7k. Most of their attendances were in  the 5K+ to 6K+ range so last night was the low point and an exception it seems.

    Wow - so basically the game is not available to 99.99% of the Canadian population. I mean why wouldn't TSN broadcast USA vs. Canada in any sport if its free and someone else is producing it? 
    Possibly One Soccer was asking for a substantial fee?
    I dunno maybe i'm old fashioned but I like the old days where you could watch sports on TV's. Not have to buy 10 different services to watch games. This is just getting stupid.

    I know im gonna get flack for this BUT..... The CFL regular season runs into November and they have teams in Edmonton, Winnipeg and Calgary 
     
    However in all fairness I think the CPL could run a season 2-4 games shorter and save a couple weeks. Especially if we keep this format.
