    Don't know if anyone has seen this yet, posted on March 10th.  We've heard his story before but this is the first time I've seen Morey tell it himself in this detail.

    So does that mean he's not coming to CPL to revive his career which has absolutely crated in shambles?  Huge missed opportunity.

    I hope Kyle Porter is the backup RB. I don't want to see him on the wing.

    Hi I agree that Gretzky is the greatest Canadian athlete relative to the competition like others have said, but a lot of people are forgetting another important name. GSP is probably one of our most well known athletes worldwide due to UFC’s success in South America and Asia. Plus other than Gretzky I’d say he is the only Canadian who can be argued to be the greatest all time in his sport.

    I personally think Steve Nash is the best Canadian sports star ever as far as accomplishment and ability
    I think if you consider the the importance of hockey to Canadian culture and the impact he had within our borders you give it to Gretzky. This is more of a subjective thing
    But yes I think Alphonso Davies has the ability to surpass both. The only challenge is people strongly consider tangible accomplishments. Can Davies accumulate titles, world cups, player of the year awards, gold cups whatever. It's kinda like his issue with exposure in Canada now. It's kinda hard to convince the casual based on he's really good, in a really popular sport, that the whole world competes at.. if he doesn't accumulate tangible accomplishments

    I messaged soccer people in Hong Kong and Taiwan but while Estevez is on the radar for E. Asian football, noone has heard anything concrete about interest. Estevez' likely salary (assuming he's lower-end on the scale here) would be equivalent to a top 3 player in Taiwan. He'd probably get a raise in Hong Kong - which has a special slot for Macanese/Taiwanese players. The Chinese leagues also have a special slot for Macau/Taiwan players, though I don't think he'd be signed on by the CSL, probably the second division instead.
    He definitely turned heads with his world cup qualifying plays against Jordan and Australia (both decent sides).

    I like Estevez, definitely the spark plug off the bench. I see him less as a 10 though, I see him as a LW, he's probably the one along with Telfer that was most willing to take players on 1v1. Obviously he didn't succeed as often, which is why Jimmy usually kept him on the bench to start.

    He is an interesting young player. I think he’s got a lot of potential... I would like us to keep him for another year or two to develop him further before hopefully selling him at a profit.

    It was a great episode that got me even more excited for the season to start. 
    I am thinking a June start date is probably the earliest after the CBC announced there should be no events larger than 50 people for the next 8 weeks.

    That was a fantastic episode btw, probably the most insightful soccer-related podcast episode I've listened to in awhile.
    McNab goes decently in-depth about the scouting and acquisition behind each of the Y9 signings this offseason. I think the vast majority of the international signings are tied to 21st Club. And with all our domestic signings being happy to come home. And they mentioned an international house for the intl players, sounds like the party house haha. It's going to be a fun season when it does get going. 
    And McNab also answers some questions about marketing and sales, where he kind of hammers home the reality Y9 faces, that there is a limited budget that Greenpark has given that he has to work within, just as Jimmy has to work within the salary cap.

    CPL clubs are required to have at least three Canadian players aged 21 or under on their roster, and to give at least 1,000 total minutes of playing time to that young talent in each season.
    i think abzi counts he's 21. Maybe it's the age by the start of the season not birth year. Judging by the other younger players on the roster abzi must count cause I can't see the others playing much at all.

    The problem with that theory is look at who Pacific, York9 and HFX have added? York9 added Arnone, Mannella, Petrasso and about 5 internationals that look like upgrades. Halifax looks like they will be able to score at least 1 goal per game now lol. Valour might finish closer to Forge and Cavalry next season but PFC, Y9, HFX look like they will be much improved.
