  1. Kinda similar to the condo at TD plae as well, obviously much more tied in.
  2. Now how would you feel if someone said they hoped the CPL went bankrupt and switched to MLS farm teams or something equally terrible?
  3. I'm with you on that, I was considering whether it was worth saying. Edit: to be clear, with you on the phrase alone not being racist. I don't have enough context to comment on anything else.
  4. Hey if nobody's happy it must be pretty close to the mark.
  5. I'm not so sure. The TV money basically covers the salary cap. So they'd still need income to cover coaches, staff, travel / accommodation, player payments that aren't part of the cap, rent / debt payments on new stadiums. 22,000 fans x $20 x 9 games = $3.96 million, almost as much as the TV money (~$5m). And I would think that there's a good chance that sponsorship revenue would be down, no fans in - stadium means no eyeballs on all the local sponsors. Maybe increased value to TV sponsors would make up for some? But they've said July because of Toronto and Calgary banning sporting events through June 30th.
  6. Come on everyone, we just got the site back, can we just stop and stick to soccer?
  7. All context aside, this gif is amazing
  8. All politics aside, there is an inescapable logical.... Irony? ... some sort of disconnect when using the word "inclusive" about something that eliminates half the population, that I can't help but chuckle at. Not saying there's anything wrong with that. Not saying there's anything right with that. Cannot state strongly enough how much I am not taking any sort of position. Just purely from a wordplay angle:
  9. Just consider serious membership proposals as they come up. Don't rush someone unprepared just to get to a number, and don't turn away a well backed proposal just for a number.
  10. Forge talked about the 6 community in the six stripes of the hammer handle last year. So not new.
  11. The Ranfurly Shield, NZ's provinicial rugby equivalent to this, is known as the Log o Wood. So maybe lump of coal or something? The short straw? I didn't mind shoelaces mentioned above.
  12. Burlington is part of the Hamilton CMA, not Toronto, so... debatable? 🤔
  13. Claiming all the way up to the edge of Hamilton. Huh.
  14. I've always hated this phrase. Losing is a result too.
  15. You know what, if you get to keep bringing it up I get to keep disagreeing. Get rid of diving.
  16. Not that it makes a huge difference in the overall numbers, but the league office takes an equal cut for operations funding. So each of 9 clubs does get 1/10 of the value. Perhaps other league do similar but that's the one I know about.
  17. I'm also on team get-rid-of-diving.
  18. Not a huge fan of the name if true. At the very least anglicize to Ottawa Athletic FC or even Ottawa Athletics.
  19. I'm normally a large, and an XXL jersey fits like a regular L. 5'11 225lb.
  20. ^^^ also should have been a cup.
  21. I don't see how he's read any more into what's posted than what's there.
  22. You don't though. They turn into seedings, and with that home advantage and better schedules for better teams. I'm of the belief that to be the best, you have to be long-term consistent (ie be good enough to qualify) AND win when it's do or die (Win in the playoffs). Teams play to the format they're in. There was a playoff set out at the start, Forge didn't need to win the fall season to make it, so they didn't. You can't look at Cavalry and just say well they came first in both, when Forge and other teams as well would play differently if the playoff wasn't there. I think at 7 teams, you don't want half the league to qualify. 3 seems best to me, 3rd @ 2nd, winner @ 1st. IF a third place team goes on the road and wins two knockout games, and supposedly "better" teams couldn't finish them off with home advantage and maybe a bye, then that team earned it to me.
  23. You can't even drink out of it!
  24. Top 3 playoffs would be best IMO. 1st gets a bye, 2 vs 3 semi-final. And no more stupid split season.
