  1. That's unfortunate, that channel costs extra beyond TSN1/3/4/5. When they weren't airing it all, I could watch the TSN stream. Now it will be blocked.
  2. Under pitch heating, and winterized plumbing (recall that it wasn't for the first 2-3 years, and they had all that damage one late-March game). But it's the bathrooms that are key, and if they are already renting it out in the winter, then it must be designed for that. Personally, I'm quite happy if we didn't play at BMO in February again ... I'm okay to sit in shirt-sleeves at Skydome - but no one wants to pony up for the conversion costs these days.
  3. I'd not been to a Forge game before. The energy of the crowd was very impressive - in stark contrast to the York FC game I got to last weekend. With the lower west stand quite full, the crowd felt bigger than it probably was! I'd certainly be there regularly if I lived in Hamilton - a bit of a trek from Toronto on GO, but perhaps I'll get back if they make the quarter-finals (which looks to be against one of the two remaining Guatemalan teams). it was a great game to watch ... though Bekker was giving me deja-vous. So, if Hamilton makes the Champions League (which is quite possible, with 6 of the current 16 teams going through), where are they going to play in February? Is Tim Horton's usable when it's that cold?
  4. Most of the discussion on this (900+ posts) is in this thread: http://www.bigsoccer.com/threads/club-world-cup-to-expand-confederations-cup-to-end.2035241/
  5. With an 8 pm kickoff, I'm coming to the game from Toronto after work ... assuming I figure out how to get from the Hamilton GO Centre to Timmies.
  6. Canada too, according to the Financial Post. https://business.financialpost.com/pmn/press-releases-pmn/business-wire-news-releases-pmn/bein-sports-usa-and-canada-to-exclusively-broadcast-laliga-until-2024
  7. Hit the * button on the remote, and change the Audio Track from Multiple Language to English. Not sure why it defaults that way - I had to do the same.
  8. With the complete lack of promotion, and the glut of $6 resale tickets in Toronto, perhaps they'll challenge the TFC attendance - actual rather than announced at least. Good job for TFC that this game was in the season ticket package ...
  9. If you cut a sandwich horizontally, don't you just end up with two open-face sandwiches? (sorry, normally, I'm having such discussions about how to cut sandwiches with my 6-year old ... who has opinions.)
  10. The game is not in Cuba, but in the Cayman Islands ... wherever that is ...
  11. Any indication what the Forge attendance was last night? Would be interesting to put in perspective.
  12. I'm not sure how making two unequal teams "equal" makes it more Canadian ... though perhaps it does ... Perhaps the best way to make it equal, is to restrict the competition to teams in the top league only, and go back to the original 3-team format.
  13. That is indeed what it says. But if you look at the detailed CONCACAF document, it also notes that would be 8 pm local time, and that "CONCACAF reserves its right to change the time and order of the matches". Clearly someone assumed that it would be Antigua advancing, rather than Hamilton. I have no doubt that it won't be that late, once it is finalized - particularly as the other two matches that day are scheduled for 5 pm local time (6 pm EDT) and 6 pm local time (8 pm EDT). I'd guess they'd swap the last 2, so that both have 8 pm local time starts - though I guess another 6 pm isn't out of the question.
  14. I'm not sure if that's a pointed comment or not, looking at Montreal's roster ... Toronto played 5 Canadians last night, compared to 3 for Montreal.
