The fantasy league is available to pick your teams on MLS Soccer website. I also joined the league for the walking the red website. My Canadian related picks: Cyle Larin FWD ORL | $5.5 Mil - Young Canadian picked first overall on a team that will be looking for a striker to step up and is very very cheap. Jack McInerney FWD MTL | $7.5 Mil - On a Canadian team. Also the main striker on an improved Montreal squad. Tesho Akindele FWD DAL | $8.0 Mil - Maybe he will be a CANMNT sometime. He should also continue scoring goals for one of the better teams in MLS with Mauro Diaz returning to an already good team and maybe more opportunity since Blas Perez maybe a step slower since he is 33 now. Jonathon Osorio MID TOR | $7.0 Mil - A Canadian with a regular starting position. Will get a lot of playing time since he can play almost anywhere in the midfield. He scored 99 points last year and potentially could improve on that score this year. Laurent Ciman DEF MTL | $7.5 Mil - On a Canadian team. Should start there almost every game. Seems to be a quality player on an improved team. Steven Vitoria DEF PHI | $7.5 Mil - Hopefully a Canadian! Had written him off, nut now I really hope he plays for Canada. Should play a lot with Philly. Maybe we could start our own league at MLSsoccer. If there is any interest start a private league and post the name and code or ask me and I can.
I want us to have some fun while we're waiting for the CPL to kick off, so I'm going to create a fantasy league. This won't be a typical fantasy league where you'd pick certain players and track their stats - it will be more like the Football Manager series, except run entirely by a computer program* on my end. You'll be able to name a team, set lineups, pick tactics, train your players, and bug Guillermo to design a logo for you (though that part's entirely your responsibility). If you want to name your players to give that personal touch, you can do that too, but I'm not going to make it have any effect on their skill level. (* - I wrote a program for the same purpose for a different online community years ago... and apparently lost it in my computer move. Time for a redesign from the ground up!) Once we see how many people are interested, we'll be able to come up with a league structure and schedule. Voyageur's Cup will absolutely be included - anything beyond that (balanced vs conference schedule, playoffs vs season table, spring/fall season vs full year) will be put to a simple majority vote of our illustrious billionaire team owners (ie. you). IF YOU'RE INTERESTED, REPLY BELOW WITH YOUR DESIRED CITY AND TEAM NAME by THIS SATURDAY (APRIL 15) AT 5 PM ET (that's 6 PM for anyone already lighting flares in downtown Halifax, either 3 or 4 PM for Rob, and 2 PM for anyone out west). Further details (tactics, etc.) can be decided at a later date (ie. once I write the program). Don't despair if someone already took your city - I'm willing to allow duplicates for the major ones (to a point). If we run into issues, I'll draw lots to settle things. The only exceptions are that Hamilton & Halifax must be held by a member of those teams' SGs, and you need to pick something that could reasonably be described as a city or major population centre. Matches will be run once a week, and I can post a text-based play-by-play of each match. Any type of graphical/video display I make would just be dots running around a screen and is not a priority. I'm hoping for the first matches to be held on April 22nd, and for everything to wrap up by early November. Also feel free to ask any questions if you have them.
