    After watching that clip, I miss Dobbie, a guy who made himself into a soccer announcer, learned from his mistakes and added some truthful emotion.

    My God, I can't believe that was 17 years ago.  Funny how names that are so commonplace on this board disappear, I guess that's what happens in 17 years.  Heard this fellas name mentioned:

    ^Good find.  Here is what the introduction to the video said, kinda summed up what we've been talking about.
    Most Canadian fans remember the Gold Cup Semi-Final match between the US and Canada in 2007 when Canada was robbed of a last-minute equalizer by some diabolically bad officiating. But the two teams faced off in the Gold Cup Semi-Final 5 years before that as well, which went all the way to penalty kicks before the US prevailed. The most memorable part of that match was this sequence of events where the US had four point blank shots at the net in a manner of seconds, the first off the woodwork before Hirschfeld made two fantastic reaction saves with a Jason De Vos block in between. It was the moment that Lars arrived as one of Canada's premiere international keepers.

    No, you think that.  He is as confident as any sane person would want a national coach to be.

    ^^So true about the politicians, especially if you are being heckled.  Pretend to see someone you know in the crowd and smile and point and wave.  Or eliminate the middleman altogether and wave to no one in this classic episode.

    I think that is a real game changer in Canadian soccer.  For those of us who were around to see the damage that the "Ho" defection caused and be subjected to ridiculous posts that said it would be the best thing for Canadian soccer, it really is a ray of sunshine.  I will give full credit to him for helping turn that around and it couldn't have been an easy task.

    Methinks you have your sarcasm radar turned off. 
    I spent 10 years in TV and in my early days we were amused by seeing how many ways a newspaper photographer could show a cheque presentation without the traditional holding the giant cheque between two people and shaking hands.
    The arms folded was one of those stereotypes like only showing a pretty girl in the stands as a cutaway shot.  Cliche stuff that pros stayed away from.  But as was said I spose it's some sort of gangsta pretending cliche now and a stock shot to take but hopefully not overuse.
    I still remember being thrown into news (from production) and not having a clue.  Thankfully a guy helped me out by telling me there were seven stock shots you could take at any news conference that would get you enough to decently piece together a story.

    Despite this fellows penchant for the ridiculous, it should be noted that, in an interview, Liam Millar basically said on watching the USA, "they're no better than we are".  We shall see, hopefully both Millar and Philly Cream Cheese will be vindicated.

    CTV has about a 20 percent larger reach than TSN.  And with people cutting the cord (cord cutters) or young people who have never had cable on their own (cord nevers) that number is increasing.
    OTA (Over the air) reception is increasing but I'm curious, how many people here use an antenna to get OTA signals?  I know if I was in the GTA I'd be doing it and not paying for cable.  I haven't had cable most of my life anyway

    Why, I ask why?
