    Canadian Premier League

    I think the logo is supposed to represent the flames coming out of the chimney in the steel plant on the north end. I say this because Tim Horton's field is about 4 KM away from it. Totally a guess but that's what i'm thinking.

    I think this is exactly it right here: The name isn't bad, it's the logo. I mean, the name is in reference to something that happened in the 1700s but the logo (as @McCarthy just said) is so 90s, there's a clear disconnect. I saw this online recently.....(certainly not my work, I don't have the ability) and thought they have the right idea.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Oh, ok. So it was ask forgiveness not permission? Yeah, I've been learning a lot more about the NASL lately thank to a podcast called "Good Seats Still Available" (credit to @Mac the Knife for suggesting it in the podcast thread). The idea of the early days and bringing in a team from overseas to play as the local team was an interesting idea.....but I'm getting off topic. I agree, regular season games don't need a tie break. I'm partial to the idea of just adding an additional 30 min (switching to golden goal and giving each team an additional substitution) before going to the shootout...but I realize that isn't likely to happen.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Didn't FIFA "use" the NASL to try this out before (and the 35 yard offside line) and ended up deciding they didn't like it? I'm foggy the the details. Maybe use isn't the right word. Allow the NASL to try these rules might be a better way to describe it.

    2018 CFL Season: The March for 106

    Yeah, he was hired on in Feb. I found it weird too since he'd been away from the game for some time. But....I find a lot of things that Hamilton does weird

    Seems like it. Red Bull NY already made coaching changes https://mlssoccer.com/post/2018/07/06/jesse-marsch-departs-new-york-red-bulls-chris-armas-named-head-coach

    OHL: Guelph Storm Unveil New Primary Logo for 2018-19

    That's really interesting, thanks for sharing that @sparky chewbarky. I think the Gryphons have a better logo and colour scheme anyway but I wonder what said offer was.

    What I meant by saying that it's moot is that 1 of those 3 teams are probably moving to the CPL and 1 is an American club. Ok, well, MLS is an American league and that's the difference here. Just like the EPL is England's 1st tier league but allows a club from Wales (Cardiff) in their competition. I would say you can consider the Welsh Premier League and the Canadian Premier League the top level in their countries but there are clubs in those countries who compete in leagues that are considered a higher level of play but are not that country's league. ......that's a frigging mouthful I won't get into the CFL/NFL thing because this is a soccer thread but yes, they are both the top tier level of football in their countries (despite the differences).

    I think, for his future health, this needs to be the end of the road for Ricky. So many injuries over the past few years. As an Argos fan, I don't want it to be the case but I'm sure he would land a job in the office with the Argos right away.

    Kind of a moot point really because Toronto FC 2 is the only Canadian "2" team now anyways. Montreal is affiliated with Ottawa (who is expected to move to the CPL) and Vancouver is affiliated with Fresno FC. Why is that a laugh? (not trying to be a jerk, honestly asking). Do you think NYCFC is as good as Barca? They are both Division 1 clubs.

    She didn't specific but I assume she meant the CFL specifically.

    Curious. My first thought was this is the D3 we've heard rumors of before where all the teams are MLS affiliates but none of the other teams moving to this league currently are.

    I'm not sure how much of this really comes into play anymore, I used to remember it being a bigger deal in the past. In a nutshell MLS pays the players, and not the team. BUT I think with the DP contract (I stand to be corrected on this) the team pays the player directly. So maybe it was just a money thing too? Maybe DC offered more than anyone else.

    Canada Day: Toronto Blue Jays Red Uniform for 2018

    This one remains my favorite of the Canada Day jerseys. Probably because the blue sleeves and hat brim break it up a little.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    I was at the game, and I thought the same thing too. Side note of some interest. I was there with a friend who's a fringe football fan at best. She mentioned to me that she loves the bombers jerseys because "You don't see much gold in football". Just something I thought the members of the board would find interesting

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    Just had a look at the highlights. I'm surprised, especially with the 2 helmet choices, that this is allowed. I've said it before and I'll say it again. The REDBLACKS need to change their look to have more plaid in it. Right now they just look like a Calgary knockoff as last night's game proved.

    Good on them. I think this shows that they are concerned and if it really proves to be something that they find is insulting or offending people they will look to make a change.

    Yup....now that's all I see

    It's becoming my catch phrase on this thread.... "not this again".

    2018-19 CHL Logos/Jerseys

    Like the jersey, not the logo. Looks like the "storm" has a fat lip

    2018 CFL Season: The March for 106

    That's how I read it. Despite both plays being kicking plays they are very different plays. I don't think comparing them makes much sense.

    The receiver/catcher gets a 5 yard halo which addresses this.

    2018 CFL Season: The March for 106

    In a nutshell (it's way more convoluted and difficult to explain that just that), the CFL started as a Canadian rugby union league.

    yeah.....that's a better way to explain it, lol.
