I love that TLs idea of 'patience' is 2 weeks not 6 months.

I noticed this one in the "4 Reasons" article:

While MLS counts tickets distributed as attendance, Toronto FC no longer meets the eye test for crowd numbers. What was a full stadium for many years is now a partially empty one even if the attendance on paper is similar.

I know this is generally accepted, but I think it's the first time I've seen it in print (other than on these boards) about how attendance numbers are determined.

"Before signing (with TFC in 2009) I spoke with them about becoming a Designated Player," De Rosario told the Sun prior to his departure. "It was promised that I was going to be the Designated Player."

As we suspected, per DeRo, Mo made verbal promises that were not kept.

I was referring to Mo's 5 year plan and not the number of years we have been a franchise.:D

for the haters:

He probably could get paid more elsewhere. But he chose to come to Toronto because he likes what we're building here. And boy is that a change
