Man of Kent says there is only one of you in that picture.

And even that one is cardboard.

And it isn't even real cardboard, but some ersatz foreign substitute.

How can fans even stand those comfortable looking red leather seats? And what's with the lines on the floor?

Not at all dkw.....not at all. I just don't want to see what we had here before (John Drake created this thread), re-occur.   That....plain and simple.

If Sportsnet's deal for the SL rights runs until the end of Sky's current deal, next year won't be any different than this year.  Their only option will be a deal for their home matches in Toronto along the lines of the one Catalans had with BeIN Sports for the past few years.

Finally getting coverage in the national news.

One has to wonder what Global viewers/readers will make of them having to fund visiting teams' travel expenses!  That's not big time, it's small time.

So he has a problem, with RU. That’s pretty clear in his first few lines. I couldn’t be bothered to read any further.

Or crawl before you walk. 

Winning league one in their first year and coming first 2 yrs in a row in the chsmpionship is a little more than crawling

Even so, Toronto having to pay visiting teams' expenses because they're all too poor to pay their own way is a bad look for what's supposed to be big time pro sport.

But that's just your spin, so nobody else has that view. 

Getting somebody else to pay for something doesn't mean you can't afford to pay.

I think you'll find a lot here who think that way - but then we're biased. 

The term we use is Bush League. Even the lowest of minor league teams over here pay their own way rather than blackmail a rich partner into paying their way. It makes them look cheap.

Having a million pound squad in L1 is laughable. One would say running before walking.
