    Did you hear that awful anthem? Not a serious league.

    To be honest, looking at the Forge and York defenses I don't see how they could fail to get goals.

    Lord Bob got a reaction from ted in Maple Leaf Forever! - Ranking the CanPL Mascots   
    The Canadian Premier League kick-off this coming Saturday will be our biggest event in some time. The entire domestic soccer community will be settling down at 1 PM Eastern, either in Forge FC’s stadium or in front of CBC television, to witness a new and hopefully more positive era in our nation’s game. This otherwise quite ordinary league fixture is making hearts across the Dominion beat a bit faster, like an Olympic semi-final.
    Nothing could better herald this dawn than our mascots. Four of the Canadian Premier League’s seven teams have, in recent weeks, introduced us to new mascots who will stand as symbols for all time, representing the Canadian Premier League to ourselves and to the world. Canada’s national coat of arms is supported by a unicorn and a lion, representing the British heritage of our governance and our culture that goes back way before Confederation. Perhaps, in a couple centuries, some new country will bear arms supported by Bolt and Stewie the Starfish. It is scarcely less probable than the existence of the Canadian Premier League itself.
    In honour of this joyous week I have decided to rank all of the league’s mascots so far, from best to worst. These ratings are entirely objective and based off a proprietary statistical algorithm developed by the Prince of Wales and tested by Maple Leaf Forever!‘s secret nerd hive in Sudbury-Thunder Bay. As a result its decisions are not to be argued with, only agreed on and amplified.

    I gotta tell you, my expectations are not that high. A press release during the intermission, no mention on the air.

    Once, England didn't have a single soccer field with seating. We will solve this problem.

    I totally disagree. We don't have a precedent for making such statements and we don't have the ability to come to a consensus on what we would say.

    Lord Bob reacted to SpursFlu in Russell Teibert   
    I completely disagree with that and ill explain why. Im not sure how closely you follow the Caps but most would say the Teibert we saw late last year was the best RT we've ever seen. He's been steadily improving but his problem like that of many domestic players is they've become victims of a rapidly improving standard of play in the MLS.  Especially for a player who occupies the space on the field in which its standard now in the MLS that you put your high paid skilled imports. Or at least if you want to win. Ill give you a comparable. At 29 there is no reason to think Felipe's standard of play would be decreasing. 5 years ago he was a very solid MLS starter. A coulle years ago he was the heart of a Red Bull midfield that i think won the supporters shield. Now, the guy looks completely out of his depth as a starter and at best can be considered a grinding depth player in the MLS. Much like a couple kids on Toronto that cant exactly beak thru, there's a rapidly rising tide in the MLS that is very difficult to keep up with
     
    And by the way.. the discussion is about Russell Teibert not anyone else on the CMNT. The fact that needs to be pointed out might be the problem

    Sure gonna help compared to some of the team's more recent plans. Like, what, our problem has been that we just can't match the world-class skill of Roger Espinoza?

    I was surprised to get back from the game and see the ragging on Teibert; I won't pretend he lit it up but for me he was fine.
    Piette wears the goal against in my book but worked like a Trojan to make up for it. All you can ask; everybody makes a mistake now and then.
    Saw David less good than others. Cavallini beyond French Guiana's powers; man of the match.
