  1. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I hate VAR
  2. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    It's essentially TFC 2 playing but :censored:, down by 2 in less than 10 mins. This sucks.
  3. Volkswagen redesigning its logo

    I really hope they don't move away from the V and W as that quote seems to suggest. Nothing wrong with a little update, as they've clearly done in the past, but no need to come up with something completely new.
  4. 2018 MLS Kits

    I don't understand this comment here. TFC also has an Italian, a Dutchman, a Brazillian, 2 Spaniards, a Congan and, a Liechtensteinian (is that what you call people from Liechtenstein?). Sorry, I just don't understand what you mean. Edit: I should clarify. I'm confused by the "in their brilliance" comment. While all players are technically paid by MLS and the league owns all the contracts, TFC pursued obtaining Bradley and Altidore. MLS didn't force TFC to go after them.
  5. 2018 MLS Kits

    I was going to ignore this but....sorry....did you see Toronto's first 10 years? No bending at all. As for Cincy? I echo @DG_Now's comments. Whatever the "FC" stands for: we're still just going to call them FC Cincinnati so it doesn't really matter.
  6. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Did some more research. Apparently FIFA is doing this for refs/crews who are going to go to the world cup, they want them to have exposure all over the world. I guess because the styles of play are so different in each continent? (Not really sure).
  7. Teams In The Wrong Stadium

    While we're bringing this thread back..... I hear something funny about the Cosmos. Apparently they inquired with the Canadian Premier League as to what they would need to do to be included. From what I've been told the answer was basically "be in a Canadian market". lol. They quickly dismissed the Cosmos.
  8. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Fingers crossed Red Bull can. I don't expect it but I'd love for an all MLS final. Not sure. I heard that it's some ref exchange program that they are doing (I don't recall where I read it, probably an MLS website article?). Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if it was another AFC crew.
  9. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Yeah, Apparently this assistant coach was just getting in on Geo who was walking away and Osorio decided to step in. Kind of wish he didn't and this possibly could have been a non-issue. Now there's a reputation forming about TFC's tunnel antics and they don't need that.
  10. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I'd say that's pretty close to the truth if not the exact truth. Between that and blaming the ref (because he told them to change their underwear.) I'm just hearing "sore looser". I'm excited and cautiously optimistic. TFC showed they can defend against Club America but, just like against Tigres, that last 20(or so) mins will be crucial.
  11. Well, I mean, there's 12 guys on the field AND (like rugby) and player can kick the ball at anytime. This is the reason the field is both longer and wider. loosing 10 yards of length might not be a huge deal but loosing the width (which is 15 feet more than NFL at 65) is probably more important. Keep in mind this as well: Because of the "rouge" the endzones are deeper as well which I'd say is mandatory. If the endzones are shallow like and NFL endzone I'd argue that there's no point in keeping that rule.
  12. Sorry man but this: While it was agreed upon to play with CFL rules on the shorter, narrower American sized fields doesn't make sense to me. With there being more players on the field in the CFL , a smaller sized field is probably a bad idea.
  13. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I guess that does make sense, being a red. The whole thing is dumb in my opinion, I know they are trying to ensure that it is not over-used like replay is in the NFL but I'd still say that it's not needed. I'm of the opinion that it all comes out in the wash.
  14. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I thought it wasn't supposed to be used for that?
  15. Toys R Us unused logo

    I worked at a local Toys R Us this past Christmas (long story short: helped out a friend who is the manager). They used that logo on a lot of stationary. They brought in a Geoffrey costume and made a staff member wear it a couple of Saturdays, apparently the goal was to bring him back. I'm not sure if this just applied to stores in the Toronto area, all of Canada, or otherwise. I just remember my buddy saying that management hoped that bring back Geoffrey would help increase sales.....which may explain a lot, lol. Also, the head of that costume (neck and up) was stored in the lunch room and creeped me out, lol.
  16. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Also see: Tigres vs TFC in the CCL tonight. lol. Honestly, I don't care what kind of "cup" you call it, it's still just a friendly.
  17. Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    That'd be a pretty logical move. For that matter, it might even make more sense for Orlando to go to the AHL and Syracuse move to the ECHL making Tampa's call ups a little easier. (Thinking geographically only here)
  18. Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    Yup..... just announced https://www.echl.com/board-governors-approves-changes-2018-19-season Word is that the Leafs will shift from Orlando to St. John's as their ECHL affiliate.
  19. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Yup Also please not the pro/rel thing again.
  20. #SaveTheCrew fan kit

    Thanks for clarifying. Ordered mine....thank goodness for having friends in Buffalo because they don't ship to Canada.
  21. #SaveTheCrew fan kit

    It really is a beauty but i'm not sure I understand, besides for making a statement, what is the purpose? (to clarify, that's not a negative statement, I'm genuinely unsure) Are proceeds going to help fund something to assist with the efforts to save the Crew? My reason for asking is; if it is financially supporting efforts to save the Crew, I will order one.
  22. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I really don't see this holding up. I'm not a lawyer but I could see MLS using the fact that it's a single entity league and that league is headquartered outside of Ohio as a loophole. That or they award FC Cincinnati an expansion team and say "look, Ohio isn't loosing a team". They could even say they are doing the whole thing that was done with the Browns. "The team name is staying in Columbus and you have x years to find an ownership group and we'll give you ""back"" your team but these player are moving to an expansion team in Austin". Don't get me wrong, I hope it does work.
  23. NHL 2017-18

    I don't think the issue is with Hamilton/Toronto, I think it's with Hamilton/Buffalo but that's been talked to death. I wasn't trying to go there. I was just making, what I thought was, a humorous observation pertaining to the similarities of the situation between Hamilton potentially getting a team and Seattle potentially (probably?) getting a team.
  24. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Not exactly off topic, not exactly on but man I hope they come back. What a shame it'd be to loose the Rhinos.
  25. NHL 2017-18

    Yes, yes. I’m aware. I still find humor in the situations though especially considering the circumstances around Del Biaggio and the fact that both plans involved major renovations on old arenas.
