  1. Just a quick screen grab from the video.
  2. Forget the protests. Evidence, from many sources, shows that outdoor transmission is very low. That, along with everything else reopening, is enough to think that is a reasonable way to have fans in stadiums this year. Might be with low capacity, might be with mandatory masks, might be some other compromises. But it should be able to happen.
  3. I find if I need to specify I say "Forge FC Hamilton" .
  4. I'd see it as much more likely that they pair up with the Arrows and make it a national rugby stadium. Much more likely is still not that likely, though. Both teams have to play away until a certain point each spring because the city won't give up the community use use they get out of having the winter dome.
  5. What's the latest on the stadium changes?
  6. Kinda similar to the condo at TD plae as well, obviously much more tied in.
  7. Now how would you feel if someone said they hoped the CPL went bankrupt and switched to MLS farm teams or something equally terrible?
  8. 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.
  9. Hey if nobody's happy it must be pretty close to the mark.
  10. 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 s
  11. Come on everyone, we just got the site back, can we just stop and stick to soccer?
  12. All context aside, this gif is amazing
  13. 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:
  14. 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.
  15. Forge talked about the 6 community in the six stripes of the hammer handle last year. So not new.
  16. 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.
  17. Burlington is part of the Hamilton CMA, not Toronto, so... debatable? 🤔
  18. Claiming all the way up to the edge of Hamilton. Huh.
  19. I've always hated this phrase. Losing is a result too.
  20. You know what, if you get to keep bringing it up I get to keep disagreeing. Get rid of diving.
  21. 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.
  22. I'm also on team get-rid-of-diving.
  23. Not a huge fan of the name if true. At the very least anglicize to Ottawa Athletic FC or even Ottawa Athletics.
  24. I'm normally a large, and an XXL jersey fits like a regular L. 5'11 225lb.
