    Let's not get started on NBA salaries. An average NBA starter is going to earn more than a whole MLS team in a year or two.

    That sounds like tourism not sport to me.

    And really, are you going to say with a straight face that nobody in Europe has ever complained about playing minnow teams in early rounds? The inclusion...

    In the NBA this year you had *maybe* four teams of any consequence. Everyone else was just making up the numbers. I really don't think clearing the bar against a lot of mediocre teams frequently...

    Well look at the formats. How many counties in Europe field at least one team with a legit shot of winning champions? Minimum 4 - not hard to stretch that to 6 or 7 in a good year.

    Comparatively...

    I wrote the same thing in another thread but I think this case is over stated. The team is already constructed to perform without michael bradley because it has to factor in his USMNT duty. On the...

    The idea that a straight-up home-away format is perfectly balanced is overdone. There are always situations arise where you can question a team's motivation and it is also quite anti-climactic at...

    But how necessary is it to prop up a team in Toronto to generate TV ratings from other areas of the country? Keep in mind this is an old, stodgy company that typically buys existing assets that...

    Agreed. We are cap tight, which is a little disappointing but nonetheless not surprising.

    We need a bit of a retool in the offseason.

    Agreed. Not the direction we should be taking things.

    He'll find another job for sure but I think we need to be more forward thinking.

    I suspect what happens is agents contact the league office with options that subsequently get filtered down to different teams. So it looks like we're lazy but no more so than anyone else in this...

    On the contrary, I think you'd find plenty of interest. These areas surrounding the GTA are looking for ways to break the beadroom community rap and provide entertainment for residents.

    The issue...

    Agreed. It's not like this is a deep league in terms of attacking talent at the AM spot. The guy we acquire just becomes a backup eventually or is a step below optimal.

    Wait for the off season if...

    What I like about chapman is his willingness to drive into the space in front of him and take on opposing defenders not just for the sake of it but to make a play. Osorio had that in year 1; where...

    Different players. Tiebert is like a low-rent Will Johnson. Big motor, does a lot of things defensively but is more box-to-box than DM. Occasional brain fart attack wise but he knows that's not his...

    The midfield lost its shape a few times for extended periods. Chalk it up to youthful exuberance and a DCU team that wasn't threatening much offensively. I can't even remember them having more than...

    i'd say that was a deserved victory. We just flat out outplayed them. Hopefully giovinco can carry this into the next run of games.

    This is starting to look like a brasileirao game. 5 up, 5 back, nothing in the midfield but empty space.

    Midfield looks out of sorts. Need to firm up that shape.

    I hope we score here. Have these guys done anything but wave their hands up and down after every clear foul call this half?

    Edit: gol!

    Nice goal. Too bad the score camera work today is just dreadful.

    ^This is the Seba show. The team is primarily structured around him.

    Bradley is the leader and is a big part of the club through marketing efforts and his performance in midfield is unmatched by...

    Well thus is life. I would not read too far into public statements from pro athletes. When is the last time you heard someone say "well I wasn't crazy about the city but that's okay, I like the pay...

    I don't think that's enough. Those stairs were crowded to begin with, even before the streetcar nonsense.

    They need to invest in a pedestrian bridge or something similar.

    They have to do something about that. It's an unmitigated disaster. Is anything planned?
