  1. He’ll be 33 when he contacts ends, I could see him taking reduced terms - if Rangers will have him. They may not need him in a year’s time.
  2. Agreed. Still a good living to be made in the UK at his age with his experience, even if the paycut is 50-70%.
  3. Who is going to pay $500,000 for Wootherspoon? Transfermarkt is fun but it's a crock.
  4. Maybe he'd rather be a backup on a World Cup squad than a starter on a more fringe team?
  5. I can't speak for any other part of the country, and it's totally anecdotal, but in southern Ontario I've never encountered anyone ever playing three-down football outside of the universities - none in organized, high school, rec, or otherwise. Even in the shadow of the Ti-Cats no one ever wanted to play CFL rules. Do minor football leagues play 3 down football?
  6. I’ve always viewed the league building daydreaming that goes go on here with an eye roll and a smirk. But St. Pierre and Miquelon on the CanPL really takes the cake ... that’s old Northboys level stuff.
  7. So the rationale for us not taking the forfeit is ... the hope we hit them for more than three goals?
  8. Interesting - will be neat to see how it ends, tho have to imagine the level is a bit low Good experience tho, likely learning that he wouldn’t get in Can PL
  9. No problem, I'll explain it to you. For Arfield and Wotherspoon: I'd bet my house that most of those guys getting called up by Jamaica probably felt their parents's Jamaican background was a notable part of their upbringing, if not something that directly contributed to or defined their identity. Whereas I'm think it is likely that Scott "Getting called by Scotland would be the pinnacle of my career" Arfield and David "Didn't cross my mind until Arfield asked me" Wotherspoon had their Canadian-born parent as a neat factoid but minimal (to non-existent) part of their identity. Don't m
  10. Kent is bang on. And to boot we're not in a place to be casting aspersions on Jamaica and their recruitment drive. Those players likely have a much stronger connection to Jamaica than Arfield or Wotherspoon have to Canada. (And Arfield, former captain, didn’t even show!) We are the country of Bircham, Valentine, De Jong, Gutierrez, Frank Sturing, Eustaquio, Tony Menezes, Leutwiler, Will Johnson, Pacheco, Issey, Greg Sutton, Richard Hastings, Canizalez...we could keep going but all these guys could be seen as having tenuous links to us. And let's not even talk about Ferreira and Vit
