    It's a modular stadium proposal, it could go up (and look like that) in weeks.

    The CPL, USports draft is happening today after the conclusion of the university national championship (best out of 48 teams) which saw "Carabins de Montréal" defeating "Cap Bretons Capers" in extra time.
    National team coach John Herdman revealed a new CPL roster rule
    According to this article
    http://aftn.ca/canadian-mens-nation...-country-in-ways-that-weve-never-done-before/

    About the draft
    The new draft will provide players with one to four years of remaining college eligibility an opportunity to sign a CPL-U SPORTS Developmental Contract to play with a CPL club in the spring and summer, while preserving their college eligibility to allow them to return to U SPORTS competition in the fall on August 15th. Graduating senior players will also be a part of the draft and eligible to sign full professional contracts.

    New CPL roster rule
    "It won’t just be the Canadian players that are eligible to be drafted. Nationality will not matter and all players that remain in the college system will be classed as domestics until they graduate."

    -John Herdman

    Yes, it crashed at noon when the results started to come out. Too much traffic!

    Good problem to have. :) I'm pretty psyched about the season. I hope people come out in droves. As much as I was a weeaboo-level Canadaphile growing up, I've kind of lost touch and need to learn about Canadian soccer. Been to Calgary before. Too bad no Dinos drafted (maybe no men's team?), but happy to see a CPL team there.

    My take on the Canadian Premier League draft of U-Sports players and their 'acquisition' of League 1 Ontario.

    The sudden change from avoiding mentioning that six players chosen played in L1O (including the top four picks) to 'acquiring' the L1O and suddenly bragging about all the L1O players who have made their way to MLS is most interesting.
