  1. Good to see this in Montreal. Has anyone catalogued all the Supporter’s Groups in non-CPL markets? I know of a few, but would be interesting to see the full list, and ideally, a rough membership size. Stay safe out there.
  2. Why isn’t this thread dropping into the abyss of the forum list ...
  3. “Ultras” 😂😂😂 More like “self-entitled cry-babies”. And their twitter bio does everything possible to alienate the club. Good to see actual supporters calling BS on that.
  4. Kent, I’m only now discovering this thread. I can tell that you have a passion for this. I confess that I have not read every post. How is the ranking/rating calculated? Is it ELO based? Don’t bother explaining it if it’s already captures somewhere in this thread— just point me to the entry date. Thanks for doing this!
  5. You guys so quiet here. You just got a kick-ass kit, and ... crickets.
  6. Isn’t this why a third kit was invented? You have your home kit, and you have a light road kit and a dark road kit. On the road, you use whatever clashes less with your opposition’s home kit. At least, that’s my completely uninformed conclusion from watching EPL.
  7. 100% agreed. I'm all-in with your comments regarding the Boot. Unless we get a sudden grassroots movement for "The Belt & The Overripe Banana" or something like that, we'll probably just pick 3-4 names and take a vote. This topic has dragged longer than I anticipated, and I apologize for that. However, I'm intrigued by your other comment about awarding a proper "trophy", not for the Boot (or over-ripe banana, or whatever), but for the Belt. Hear me out for a minute ... Imagine a proper, large, glorious Belt, either backed by a corporate sponsor, or financed by the fans (Voyageurs
  8. Better have someone look at your closet. Closets have been know to shrink clothes 😉
  9. 😂😂😂 Okay, you got me there. That Obama thing never gets old. But in my own defense, I did follow-up that very sentence with some context: “Yah, a few here and there dabble in it,” I know for example, that China does much more the dabble in basketball, but point taken.
  10. So, back to this for a moment. “The Boot” may be getting the boot in this democratic process. Here are some other options: The Belt & The Boot (yah, still like it) The Belt & The Shoelace (humble award) The Belt & The Button (humble, alliterative) The Belt & The Lump-o-Coal The Belt & The Boxers (under-garments) The Belt & The Suspenders (or Garters?) The Belt & The Strap (got the strap) The Belt & The Spoon (common but still good) The Belt & The Galosh (variation on Boot) The Belt & The Welly (
  11. I stand corrected: In 19 years, not one CCL title. I didn’t say nobody else in the world plays basketball. Let’s get our facts straight. I said that if they play basketball, they’re primary sport is something else.
  12. NFL, NHL, MLB, and NBA are at the pinnacle because nobody else in the world plays those sports. Yah, a few here and there dabble in it, but let’s be honest, soccer and cricket are really their games. Therefore, in a sample of 1, America is #1. People talking about MLS being top five in the world 😂😂😂😂😂 ... how about being top in North America first? In 25 years, not one CCL title to show. Not one! Reality check people.
  13. My (possibly unpopular) opinion: Top third: Wanderers, Pacific, FCE Mid third: Valour, Cavalry Bottom third: Forge, York9
  14. I know that this is a CPL thread, and that it's "kit reveal night", so forgive the tangent ... There is no such things as too many football clubs 😀, but I know you meant "too many clubs at the same level". As you pointed out, in the US context, it's just a matter of implementing hierarchy, for both clubs and players. The roadblock is USSF/SUM/MLS, but that's a cluster too deep to get into here. The US is just too populous with too many markets to have a single 30-40 team league. The best solution I've seen was proposed by Daniel Workman and Chris Kivlehan. Check them out on Twitter. Basic
  15. Regarding the new kit (so far): Wanderers - love it. York9 - pretty good. Forge - umm ... okay.
