    Just got the e-mail:
    Dear Wopchop,

    On behalf of the club, Happy New Year! As we work to restore Toronto FC as a championship contender, today is a historic and exciting day. As you have no doubt heard through media reports over the past several weeks, we are very pleased to officially announce to you today the signing of Italian International Lorenzo Insigne as a Toronto FC player. Lorenzo will join TFC on July 1 at the conclusion of the Italian Serie A season.

    Lorenzo is a world-class attacking player in the prime of his career. He is a European champion with Italy and has performed on the biggest stages during his club career as captain of Napoli. Lorenzo has the talent to change games. He plays the game with joy and passion and I just know you are going to love watching him as a member of our team as much as he will enjoy the support at BMO Field and in our community.

    We are working tirelessly this off-season to return TFC to championship form for our city, fans and supporters. With Bob Bradley at the helm, and the addition of a world-class player like Lorenzo Insigne, we are confident that 2022 will be one of the most exciting seasons in club history.

    Part of me still doesn't believe this. Absolutely incredible.

    Upper management has made some terrible decisions over the years but wow you can't question their financial commitment to the club.

    Yeah. Mind blowing.

    A bit like watching your rich uncle, famous for being a cheapskate about cars for years, suddenly show up driving a Lamborghini.

    Time for Shaff to ask for a Rolex or something in exchange for the number. (Since in the NBA/NHL/MLB/NFL that happens sometimes where a star will give a scrub some money/gift for giving up the number)

    I’m glad to see our decades long government mandated telecommunications duopoly/extortion ring has finally personally benefited me.

    That’s the part of the narrative that guy doesn’t get.

    Look at the back and forth even in Champions League this past season. Crazy challenge for the USL side of things to build a winner.

    well, I'll eat some crow as I didn't think Insigne would sign now, not at the end of European transfer

    I suppose money does talk

    “Years have gone by and I’ve finally learned to accept myself for who I am: a beggar for good football.

    I go about the world, hand outstretched, and in the stadiums I plead: ‘A pretty move, for the love of God.’

    And when good football happens, I give thanks for the miracle and I don’t give a damn which team or country performs it.”

    -Eduardo Galeano

    DAZN has been tweeting a lot of Insigne stuff. Is that a sign to come where MLS broadcast rights are going?

    No crow needed, now lets use some of the GAM & TAM from leaving players… Gallardo, OG, Deleon and Laryea sale and get a rock solid CB.

    Other than the Canadian clubs i am pretty sure they are already there…. I see the US MLS games live all the time… our games are mostly re-broadcast later

    Official congratulations to us! Just think about what we used to watch on the field at the beginning and who our club is signing now. Incredible.

    Ah ok. I wish they had the full Canadian rights for MLS too, not just out of market games.

    Like I was saying earlier in this thread. Right foot beating the keeper at the far post. Everyone knows it but they still can’t always stop it. His signature shot.

    DAZN either takes the local feed or the Sky feed for MLS games. If they get/had MLS Canadian rights, I think they'd be forced to do production locally.

    Get ready for a lot of Nigel Reed if that happens.

    I’d be ok with that to not have it on TSN anymore.

    Yeah his heat map totally shows that. Gets a lot of touches right at the left side of the 18.

    They better not take TFC off of TSN. Everyone else is a step down from Luke wileman. I will bear it if it's on Sportsnet. Paying more for dazn can gtfo!

    Fat chance that's going to happen, especially when TSN knows that local sports broadcasts are their main moneymaker.
