    If you think about it, selling out 2 games against team who likely has fairly small appearance fees like T&T is a good plan. Toronto and the larger cities seem to struggle selling any more than 15k against a team like T&T, so really, 2 games of around 7k is almost as good. Let the smaller CPL places get the smaller countries, and share the big games around in the MLS cities. Will grow the game across the country.

    Sell more than 15k though? What I mean is the little bit of extra effort to spread games around might grow the popularity of the men’s national team. If there is hardly a difference in attendance then it really isn't much of a financial problem.

    The Canpl will bring more defenders to the national team. It is much easier for MLS teams to give an opportunity to an 18-20 year old attacker than defenders because defenders usually develop later. 
    In the MLS, young defenders sit on the bench and don't get on the field (save a few). But young forwards get sub appearances etc... The Canpl is actually quite heavy on the 18-25 year old Canadian defenders. Of all positions to make progress from the Canpl it is defenders and goalkeepers (later developers).

    Hey guys. Is there a group of supporters who travel from Nanaimo for games by chance? Or some sort of mid island supporters group? There is a chance I end up in Nanaimo this summer and carpooling is much more appealing than making the drive alone.

    Congrats to Froese as they now move on to the semifinals. Big accomplishment for a 4th division team.
    Bonus point for knocking out two usmnt players (Morales and Steffan).

    Sure but its hard for that last CB on the roster to even get a sniff of the field.  Didic made the gameday roster plenty at SKC, even got into a couple cup games but never got into a MLS game in 3 years.  Montgomery last year, same thing.  A coach is not as inclined to sub his CB late in a game to give a young guy a run out like he is with young forwards or mids.  Look at Buchanon, Wright etc, they never broke through to starters but at least they got some sub appearances to show something.  
    And for keepers its even worse.  A guy like Bush or Mannone will play every game.  Crepeau, Pantemis, StClair have/had roadblocks in front of them.

    Whitecaps are missing a bunch of midfielders and central defenders who people are hoping will be starters. Hopefully the game last night was an outlier... But anyone who has watched Puebla play will know that Cav is used to working with little service.

    Don't forget that both of these games for MAK are essentially preseason games. It is very normal to see MLS players struggle and unfit in the Champions League.
