    Time for new Canadian rivalry
    By GARETH WHEELER

    Let's preface what follows by saying Montreal is a fantastic city with an amazing vibe.
    The problem is Montrealers really don't like us here in Toronto. How many times have you been to Montreal and heard the same lame comment -- "I hate Toronto." When you press further as to why, there's never a reasonable answer. So, tomorrow we should give them a reason to hate us -- our football club is better than their's!
    We're talking rivalries here, and not the half-assed hockey one that's artificially perpetuated through eight games a season between teams on completely different scales in terms of competitiveness. We've been there, done that.
    It's time to build a new rivalry -- on the soccer field.
    Tomorrow, as part of the CONCACAF Champions League qualification, Toronto FC plays the Montreal Impact. The Vancouver Whitecaps are also part of the series, competing for Canadian bragging rights.More important than the potential Champions League spot is the long-term spin off it can have in creating a true sporting rivalry. ...

    Toronto FC vying to represent Canada
    LARRY MILLSON
    From Monday's Globe and Mail

    TORONTO — Toronto FC will have little time to dwell on Saturday's 3-2 loss to D.C. United, in which Danny Dichio had twice provided leads for Toronto with goals in the first half.
    Now it is on to Montreal for a Canada Cup game against the Montreal Impact at Stade Saputo Tuesday. It is the first match of a round-robin tournament involving the Impact, Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC, with a spot to represent Canada in the CONCACAF Champions League at stake.
    Vancouver and Montreal play in the United Soccer Leagues, which is a notch below Toronto's league, Major League Soccer.
    The loss to D.C. United at RFK Stadium in Washington was the first for Toronto FC in seven matches. After losing 4-1 to host D.C. on April 5, Toronto has won four games, lost one and tied two, with five of the seven matches at BMO Field in Toronto.

    It's not going to trump any of the big sports, or lead the sports shows, but something more than 15-20 seconds at the end of the show is deserved especially now...

    All this hype in the papers, but nothing showing for tomorrows match on the TFC website? Opposite of what I was expecting, other than the open ticket window for the other home matches, there is no exposure on the main page i.e. Upcoming matches

    Currently on Monday mornings. .NONE of the big 6 radio stations even have a single line about TFC when they do their weekend sports review wrap up.

    Like I give a flying fuck that Tampa Bay Bucaneers made some signing. .. . seriously. . not a word.
    NOTICE: Wager with STB: OVER 2 shots on goal in the First half wins a Pint at HT.

    TFC vs MTL will be live on CBC Bold (the old CBC Country Canada). I think it is rogers channel 277...calll Rogers, you will usually get 3 months for free.

    TFC will need to show it can win on the road to be taken seriously as a title contender.
