  3. Probably signed previously, just spacing out the announcements.
  4. From the Canadian Press: Toronto's ban on city-led events through June 30 does not prohibit sporting events at private facilities. That means the Maple Leafs and Raptors could still play games at Scotiabank Arena, and the Blue Jays could play at the Rogers Centre.
  5. We are proud to announce the signing of former Puebla F.C. midfielder Francisco Acuña #AtléticoOttawa l : https://bit.ly/2RcLtmf
  6. Athletico continues to add new players, Tevin Shaw, Jamaica. https://canpl.ca/article/atletico-ottawa-adds-jamaican-international-tevin-shaw-to-its-midfield
  7. Yes, but soccer is the only sport with a maximum age limit, any other sport is based on your ability.
  8. More news from Athlético: https://ottawasun.com/sports/soccer/with-cpl-season-on-hold-atletico-ottawa-players-reaching-out-to-fans I haven't received a call to date: "Atletico players, who returned early from a training camp in Spain on Monday, have been in self-isolation, but that hasn’t stopped them from making phone calls to people who are on a list of 550 account holders who made an initial deposit to hold season tickets. Atletico Ottawa is going into its first season in the CPL."
  9. Brandon John signing official: https://ottawacitizen.com/sports/soccer/center-back-brandon-john-joins-atletico-ottawa/wcm/7c35bec2-a5d7-416a-b6bb-b9767e86ab43
  10. Even though i think they are a much improved team this year, I think they are 2nd tier for CPL. Tier 1 : Forge, Y9, Cavalry Tier 2: Pacific, Valour, HFX Tier 3: FCE, Atléletco
  11. Where these games played in empty stadiums? I noticed Belarus is still playing.
  12. Recent article on mlssoccer.com indicates a target return to play on May 10th, would expect that training would have to start two weeks prior. Key will be the impact of warmer weather on the spread.
  13. The lyrics of Long Winding road reflect the torture of my 50 year love affair with Canadian soccer, both national and club: The long and winding road That leads to your door Will never disappear I've seen that road before It always leads me here Leads me to you door The wild and windy night That the rain washed away Has left a pool of tears Crying for the day Why leave me standing here Let me know the way Many times I've been alone And many times I've cried Any way you'll never know The many ways I've tried But still they lead me back To the long winding road You left me standing here A long long time ago
  14. Is there official confirmation? I can't find anything though I am sure it will be cancelled.
  15. Even if CanPL starts the season a few weeks late, they should have enough mid-week open dates to play the full schedule, so we have about six weeks.
  16. Yes, first the mexican referees screw us and now their beer😎
  17. CONCACAF suspends the Champions League, that just leaves the qualifying, hoping for the best , I am flying into Guadalajara on the 20th.
  18. The American team is already in Guadalajara training according to a comment on one of the broadcasts (forget which one). It is also mentioned in an MLS article posted on March 9th. USMNT and USWNT games have just been cancelled, not looking good for the qualifiers...
  19. I saw a list of players eligible for the 1000 minutes from CPL last year and from what I remember the oldest players on the list were born in 1998, no 97s on the list. Have to average 35.71 minutes per game. Edit: Found the list and I was wrong there are some 97s on the list, all teams would have still met the limit excluding the 97s. https://canpl.ca/article/trust-the-kids-all-7-cpl-clubs-surpass-1000-minute-threshold-for-u-21-players
  20. Abzi and Boskovic are both 98's, so too old for the 1000 minutes.
  21. For a defender Deliberate/not deliberate is still a consideration, and the statement that the player "made their body unnaturally bigger" also implies that they are times when the body is "made naturally bigger" 😎 If the ball had hit the Left arm then you have a very strong argument for handball. Not saying that I necessarily agree with the call, just pointing out the considerations the referee crew would have used, it also appears that the Montreal defender may have blocked the assistant referee's view of the play.
  22. Here is the wording of the revised handball law: The part in bold is what the referees would have based their decision on. HANDBALL (LAW 12) Deliberate handball remains an offence. The following ‘handball’ situations, even if accidental, will be a free kick: • The ball goes into the goal after touching an attacking player’s hand/arm; • A player gains control/possession of the ball after it touches their hand/arm and then scores, or creates a goal-scoring opportunity; • The ball touches a player’s hand/arm which has made their body unnaturally bigger; • The ball touches a player’s hand/arm when it is above their shoulder (unless the player has deliberately played the ball which then touches their hand/arm) The following will not usually be a free kick, unless they are one of the above situations: • The ball touches a player’s hand/arm directly from their own head/body/foot or the head/body/foot of another player who is close/near; • The ball touches a player’s hand/arm which is close to their body and has not made their body unnaturally bigger; • If a player is falling and the ball touches their hand/arm when it is between their body and the ground to support the body (but not extended to make the body bigger); • If the goalkeeper attempts to ‘clear’ (release into play) a throw-in or deliberate kick from a team-mate but the ‘clearance’ fails, the goalkeeper can then handle the ball
