    I find this interesting. From El Porvenir which I believe is a local paper.
    Ferretti seems a little salty.

    (it's a PDF)
    Painful removal

    He expressed his pain at the frightful
    elimination and a frustrated Ricardo
    Ferretti said in the end that it is always
    painful to be eliminated.

    After proclaiming that he preferred Liga MX
    to the Concachampions, "El Tuca"
    added that despite the fact that Tigres made
    a good match, it did not reach them for more.

    "It hurts to be eliminated, it's painful," said the cat strategist.

    "But my teams made a very good match today,
    but the elimination leaves us sad.
    "But the truth is that I'm going quiet, because
    the team did everything they had to do, so
    I do not win but move on to the next round.

    "The team played very well, but not always
    the one who wins plays better and today
    We were very superior and we gave a very
    good performance and they only arrived two
    or three times ", pointed out Ricardo Ferretti.

    To finalize "Tica" fixed that yes there was illusion
    to win the Concachampions.

    "But hey, we're out again."

    Watched it last night, from what I recall the guy that's not in studio is the only one seriously giving TFC any credit and goes as far as saying that over 180 minutes we were the better team. The rest of the guys guys disagree, and some blame the Goalkeeper Guzman for allowing the free-kick goal. Also commenting on how Tigres choke in international competitions. The Vermes-looking guy on the left and the guy not in studio go at each other because he seems to be the most anti-MLS and last week after we won he said Tigres would surely win (which in a way he's not wrong, they just didn't advance )

    Loving all this media coverage we're getting now. Back when we made the semis vs. Santos Laguna you'd have to wait 30 mins to see 3/8 goals on TSN. Now they're showing replays and analysis like 4x per hour. We've come a long way in 6 years.

    My only speculation is that Ricketts may not be 100% fit yet. I know he was supposed to come in last game before Zavaleta's injury, but maybe he tweaked something during training.

    Pure spec on my part but I'd say Hamilton was there to

    1. Get experience going overseas that Ricketts has already
    2. Spare Ricketts from the travel when he's likely starting on Saturday

    Package
    • All 17 MLS regular season home matches
    • 1 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) Match
    • 2 additional matches, CCL or Canadian Championships
    • Priority Access to 2017 Home Playoff Matches

    That little "or" word carries some weight and let's them decide to give us which games they want I guess.

    From their perspective its a very easy decision, make us buy the game they know we all want to attend and give us the game that otherwise could be a hard sell. For instances at the V Cup home leg vs. Ottawa last year which was included in our package, had an announced attendance of 15,175 even though the season ticket total hovered around 22,000. They used the turn style and did not try to play a game of smoke and mirrors with the number.

    With this years Canadian semi-final vs. most likely Ottawa being a mid week game in late July if there option was there I am sure a number of SSH would not pick up this game and the FO knows this.

    They did not even try that charade last year when season tickets were in the area of 22K. For the semi-final vs. Ottawa. Attendance was announced at 15,175 even with the 22,000 season seat holders, so they used the turn stile count and did not try and play a game of smoke and mirrors with it.

    I figured that, because on the other end if the game was not included in our package and god forbid Oakville or Blainville knocked off Ottawa you could end up with maybe 10 K, more likely less down at BMO on that July evening.

    Yeah I am sure it was an easy business decision and agree people would not necessarily pick up the Vcup game. I just hope they don't try to charge MLS Cup type prices for this.
