    That would require Herdman actually calling him.

    Yeah if they are expecting to see a sell out before thinking a CPL will be sustainable that just isn’t going to happen. I understand these games are important to test the market. The thing is they are still meaningless games, and casuals or non soccer fans probably don’t even know  about them. Saskatchewan sports fans are all in. If they get a CPL club they will be top of the table for attendance.

    He isn’t close to good enough for the German top flight. If he didn’t make it in Turkey, and went to belgium. What makes you think he was good enough for Bundesliga ?

    I guess, but I don’t see many people interested in a pointless game mid week. League games at least hold value.

    While I’m here, perhaps I should give an update on the supporters scene in Calgary, since this is supposed to be a Canadian soccer supporters board.
    The scene is thriving in Calgary, and has surpassed any expectations I could have dreamt up before the season started. Although we don’t have official membership in the Foot Soldiers, we’ve gone from about 25 people last year to over 350. Not only do we have section 200 sold out every game, but the supporters scene has grown into sections 201 and 109, which have become pseudo supporters sections on their own. We’ve gone from having me try to drag people out to talk banners and flags, to people designing and bringing their own made on their own time.
    There is a real buzz around this club and around the atmosphere in the stadium. I would argue that Cavalry has the loudest supporters scene in the CPL right now (though I hear great things about Halifax, Hamilton and Winnipeg), and games such as those against the Whitecaps are making people take notice. Even the main grandstand is loud. Last year I would have watched the Voyageurs Cup on my couch, this year we packed a bar to the brim. And the scene after the final whistle was incredible!
    I think we’re slowly but surely turning Calgary into a soccer city...

    I wish Wheeldon was managing the National Team. That is the way we should play against a team that is better then you on paper.

    The Clippers are literally worth $2 billion because that's what they sold for. That's how it works.
    Even if Steve Ballmer overpaid, that's still real cash changing hands.
    Anyway, I have to agree with @narduch when he says the Whitecaps joining CPL is more fanfic than a real life possibility. MLS and CPL will co-exist in Canada for the foreseeable future.

    The value of a Serie A club has no bearing on what MLS franchises are worth, regardless of how long its been around. Real billionaires are dropping way more than that on MLS teams, presumably after doing far more due diligence than you are.
    Last week, James Harden (not a billionare) bought a 5% stake of the company that owns the Houston Dynamo and Dash for $23.75 million. That values the teams at $475 million.
    You have to be stupid rich to get into the MLS ownership game these days.

    I personally would love to see all 3 Canadian MLS teams join the CPL. At the same time I’d like to see the salary cap abolished or greatly increased. I know people want parity but I do think teams like Forge, Valour and Cavs would be willing to spend the money and make the league more competitive overall. Keep the Canadian roster requirements that the current CPL has and it overall would increase our National Team to a greater extent as well.

    Since this thread deserves a resurrection. He has started to earn himself some good minutes for Cavalry FC. I really like watching this kid play. He has been playing RB and his overall game is very sound. He is extremely fast, a great dribbler, and great vision and crossing ability. He has also been sound defensively. 
    With the major question marks at Canadas RB position he deserves to be monitored. If not for the Senior team give him a shot in th U23s perhaps.

    I really don’t understand what that has to do with anything ? All of the Canadian teams are spending to the cap other then Ottawa. The reason we haven’t seen the Canadian teams win has nothing to do with spending. Most of our teams have just had bad management. Also most UFAs are going to sign in big cities in the USA. The Canadian cities generally can’t pull high tier ufas which is a significant disadvantage.

    Canada doesn’t have more teams because there isn’t investment groups interested in paying the expansion fee. The NHL would not restrict more Canadian teams if their was investor groups willing to actually launch a team. The last group was the Quebec City team who would have a team right now if they put the money up. They didn’t. Vegas did.
