  1. Since when have we stooped to the level of the Americans to which we give our spot to last season's champions? Ridiculous. What's next, are we going to give it to the most successful club in Canadian club football history just because they're the most successful? I refer to the Americans because they awarded a CCL spot to Atlanta who won the US Open Cup in 2019 (remember it wasn't played last year) instead of to Sporting Kansas City, the Western Conference Champions. That was even more of an abomination than Rollins' wonderful suggestion. Come on people, such an idea is a farce
  2. I agree with you both here. Ultimately, as I said earlier today, the primary part at fault here is the CSA, as they are the ones responsible for setting a date and time for the match reasonable to both clubs. With that said though, there is no denying that there is a bias towards the Canadian MLS teams in terms of benefactors. This is something that needs to be rectified though, as overall this is substandard for a first world country
  3. Fully agree. There's absolutely no way the Canadian team playing in an American league should be getting an advantage over a Canadian team playing in a Canadian league. Call it whatever you want. It is unreasonable to expect any team to be ready in 2 weeks for a match of such magnitude when they aren't even finished putting their squad together. However you want to slice this, the blame has to go on the CSA. They had this revised format planned from last summer, and we are a month away from the CONCACAF Champions League commencing, yet we do not even know who will be representing Canada on the
  4. That plus opens up the road to promotion and relegation down the road. Otherwise, this all would be pointless
  5. Because the man clearly doesn't know what he's doing. Making groups of 5? Absolute madness. Asking for West Germany vs Austria 1982 to happen again. Allowing for 11 of the 16 knockout round spots for teams from North America? UEFAesque. That's one worse than right now. They should have a maximum of 8. This isn't as good as it may seem
  6. Montagliani talked about the Central American clubs having a separate competition that'll serve in part as qualifying for this tournament. Same will apply for the nonprofessional clubs from the Caribbean (they'll continue to have their own cup, serving as qualifying). Basically, the CONCACAF League as we know it will cease to exist
  7. This is where you and I disagree. If those three Canadian teams want to qualify for the CCL, they should only have two ways in: - Winning the Canadian Championship, and/or - Winning the CCL There is absolutely no way those three teams should be taking American spots away from them, unless they intend to move there and become a part of USSF (something I sincerely hope doesn't happen)
  8. Couldn't agree more. I don't have a problem with the regionalized format, but having odd numbered groups just isn't right. That's a ticket for match fixing. Four team groups, everyone meets each other home and away. Poor thinking from CONCACAF here Plus, the number of spots awarded to each region is badly skewed. Too many spots for North America. They should have a maximum of 8 spots. Central America should have 5-6 spots, and the Caribbean 2-3. I'm disappointed in CONCACAF. I expected better than this
  9. Yeah, I took that in as well. I was pleasantly surprised that such was allowed to happen. Let's hope these clubs can stay in the league for years to come🤞🏾
  10. Yep, was thinking this. Then for playoffs, top 2-4 teams qualify. They can do a group stage like in the last season that was played (2 groups of 4, with the highest ranked team in each group hosting) with the group winners making the final. They can also just do a straight knockout. As for the L2O, I agree. At this point we should be thinking about splitting the league at some point. Don't turn this into USL. There are more than enough teams to do that. Just a side note, Dino Rossi mentioned the potential of having more teams. Going into this season, I can't imagine mor
  11. Yeah, it looks so. Their women's team isn't there either
  12. As promised, I have come up with something for a potential future CONCACAF Champions League and CONCACAF League format. I think this is something that would work well CONCACAF Champions League: I'm thinking that a return to group stage football would actually work. I would split qualifying into each subconfederations' region. I will start off, however, by pointing out the access list. Mexico: 6 spots (4 in the GS, 2 in qualifying) United States: 5 spots (4 in GS, 1 in qualifying) Canada: 2 spots (1 in GS, 1 in qualifying) Costa Rica, Honduras
  13. Sometime this week I will come up with a suggestion to how the format should go. What I will say based off of the comments is this: everyone needs deserves a chance. So, as I am reading a lot of here for example, the Belizean champion shouldn't get a spot in the competition is nonsensical. If that's the attitude that is taken, let me ask you this: should teams like Canada not get a shot at qualifying for the next World Cup as we don't have a real shot at winning it? At bare minimum all NAs' champions should get a spot in qualifying for this competition. CONCACAF might run into the same problem
  14. To all of those saying that it'll be six easy matches for Canada (or anyone else for that matter) to get to the Octagonal, let's hold our horses. We don't even know who will even be in our group yet. We don't know who will top Group E either. Nothing is a given, so let's take it with a grain of salt. Yes, Canada should win their group and qualify for the second round. Yes they should qualify for the Octagonal. However, nothing is for certain yet
