    Valours INT players were a wash out.  I'd rather go with young CDN than bring in INT and have them **** the bed (I'm looking at you Hoyle).

    Bbeto reacted to ted in New away kits...   
    Pathetic. 

    As I posted to a PFC group:
    PFC Away jersey on it's own: looks really cool, love the lighthouse design.
    As one of the series of cookie-cutter jerseys: this is horrific and betrays a corporate mentality with no respect for football traditions or local autonomy.
    Come across a game on TV or online and you will have to play "guess the opponent" because other than one or maybe two jerseys that are actually distinct at a distance, they all look the same except for the corporate logos.
    Team colours should mean something and be easily identifiable rather than be relegated to accents. There was no need to change both jerseys in only the second year of existence and both our existing kits were fantastic. Sell us new merchandise all you like, but changing both kits is just a cynical, corporate cash-grab.
    The real test will be next year. If they make ANY kits changes for 2021 after the 2020 "season" they will deserve not one red cent of our money.

    ESPN wrote an article about the CPL restart. They also managed to not mention the CPL in the heading on their website. Instead going with Alphonso Davies is a miracle for Canadian soccer

    That would not surprise me at all.  When Gol TV Canada was telecasting some TFC matches a decade or so ago, they were drawing three figures at times according to a reliable source.  No numbers were released for Gol TV viewership of TFC games as far as I know.

    Quote from Cavalier FC technical director Rudolph Speid: “Why we love the Canadian League more than even the USL (United Soccer League) is that this is going to be the second season of the Canadian League and they have already sold about four players to Europeans clubs."
    Those transfers really do attract meaningful attention.

    I'm not ready yet to write off the possibility of playing games with fans in seats in 2020, but we should not be looking to anything happening south of the border as a model for a restart.

    Bbeto reacted to Rocket Robin in Atlético Ottawa 2020 Season   
    Wow so one year later and no Ottawa Fury.  Remember all those fans 
    who swore there'd never be soccer in the city if there was no continued 
    sanctioning for the USL?    
    USL Championship starts up this weekend with a home and away schedule to play well 
    on ESPN.  The compromise reached is that conferences have been divided
    up into smaller groups.  Fury would have been in the conference 
    containing teams from Pennsylvania and New York state (at least avoiding
    the Florida and other teams from the Covid/southern states). 
    Note there are some crossover games as NYRB II visits Atlanta U 2 in
    September.  
    I expect the Fury would have not have been allowed to play because of
    cross border restrictions.  This is what's happening at USL League One
    level where Toronto FC II and the league have agreed that the team will
    sit out the season because of quarantine rules.  (Can't isolate two weeks
    with any type of compressed schedule).  
    At least you'll be able to watch Atletico on OneSoccer until there
    are possible home games after their tourney in Victoria or Charlottetown.

    It wouldn’t hurt for TFC II to call up some potential options, especially for friendlies. What’s the harm in checking in with L1O to see if they will have any kind of a season? What’s the harm in seeing if Saskatchewan wants to have some friendlies against them? I don’t expect these things to pan out, just throwing some long shot ideas out there.

    The league has nothing to gain business-wise doing this. You can be sure that the 3 MLS teams would use this precedent to apply pressure to get their reserve squads in the league cementing the "2nd rated league below MLS"
    Not that everyone isn't aware of CPL's place on the pecking order but right now, they are being "different" & "independent" of MLS which is the right move.
    Never understood how some can praise the business-focus of MLS and turn around and ask CPL to leave their business interests at the door and just do the right thing.
    TFC II place is helping the Sask Series organizing friendlies or having them with L1O, not serve as a trojan horse to help Manning's narrative.
    Nothing stopping TFC from taking more Canadians to the 1st team and give them minutes in the tournament. CPL shouldn't have the burden of helping out when TFC could do it all along. They could loan some players to CPL clubs
