    To me there are two keys to ownership from another club.
    1. You can't compete in the same structure, for example, the Canadian Championship. If TFC because licenced under the USSF similar to Cardiff/Swansea than it may work.
    2. The club must have intentions to be a separate entity. This doesn't mean they can't loan players or have a working relationship, but that can't be the intention of the club. Athletico don't need a Canpl club to delevop their players. They are a world class club, they loan their players out where they are best suited just like any other club.
    Athletico's intensions are likely #1 branding, #2 growing the business (diversification, long term growth, etc...), and maybe #3 a way to get their feet on the ground in Canada to scout talent. Realistically, soccer talent is the last of their worries, a club like Athletico is not looking at Ottawa to generate first team players. It is a business investment, and the Ottawa club managers (hunt) will be looking more for developing talent to sell on.

    Considering the way the 3 MLS clubs have run their USL affiliates, I wouldn't want them in my league either

    I don’t see it as payback at all.  There are no more Canadian teams in the league and now there is the CPL, Canadians should be considered international players.  The same way Americans in the CPL should be considered international players.

    I think it's more like offsetting costs than allowing new spending, at least, in regards to player wages.
    As for the other elements in Mahith's list, well, those are all free game, and building an academy provides direct access to players that could potentially fill in when there's an injury on that short roster CPL has...
    That said, I'd be surprised if Forge didn't have something worked out with Hamilton United Elite, the L1O club that's adding a men's team this year.

    How can you be qualified for a final championship round after only half a season?
    That doesn't sound too serious to me, hope CPL knows enough to avoid that stuff.

    Now would be a good time to up the minimum on Canadian players to start matches. I believe it is still at 3, right?
    That's a cakewalk for the CPL teams. Montreal and Vancouver have a ton of Canadians by historic standards and TFC are now up to 8 or 9 I think.
    Should be increased from 3 to 4. I want to say 5, but y'know...slow and steady.

    Or maybe he needs to flirt with playing for another country.  That always raises a player's stock around here.

    Love how all the people who said Didic isn't good are all of a sudden using Waterman in their comparisons. Last year it was all Zator, Zator, Zator. Maybe, us fans don't really know that much.... Maybe Didic was a good player on a terrible team. 
    More importantly (if I dare say it), maybe we have multiple young CBs who are just starting to develop because they have never played pro consistently. Cornelius, Didic, Waterman, Zator, and even Samuel. Throw in some even younger guys like the kid from Pacific and we might be looking up.

    Sure we have unattached FC there. But it is off season for the north American leagues, and we can really only call north American players for this camp. If Didic (technically unattached), James, and Morgan are still unattached come spring, then we have a problem.

    Bookmark this page if you can't watch live. I'm going to record the stream and post it here with no results. As always, I don't know if my laptop will die mid-match/upload but I'll try! I should have it up around 10pm EST, if it doesn't work and the CSA archives the match on YouTube I'll post a link here.

    BFBF reacted to spitfire in Liam Millar   
    The vast majority of the killie fans are sad to see him go sorry. Have a look on twitter look at liams post. im the first to admit we would have liked more output for sure but very tough in a team that hasn’t won in 11 hasn’t scored in 6 and he was playing in a very defensive 451 as a left mid really. He did the best he did. He fought and leaned the best way possible. 

    the truth be told is he is a 20 year old footballer on his first loan who managed in on year to get 35 pro appearances under his belt earning a starting place in a very tough physical SPFL The purpose of his loan was get experience mins and toughness which he did. 
     
    now he returns for a reset and regroup and possibly heads out again if possible hopefully to a championship team...or try to get involved with the first team sqUad. 
    A welcome challenge for sure but one that’s up to him..
