Then you never will. And they have to change every 2 years so it's not as bad as other leagues which is yearly (although I think that's by choice, not requirement).

They gotta pump the Canadiana since that is the only thing they got going for them. And realistically that is only for the ignorant. Anyone that truly follows Canadian soccer knows the Whitecaps have just as many, if not more, players on Canada's youth squads than TFC. That kit is better than their entire history of TFC combined, which isn't saying much of course.

Only way they get my money is me buying tickets or a hat. No " kits" from this purple grimace

Only 2 sleeps away here's my prediction for the 18 for the Whitecaps.

-------------------Nolly----------------

Leathers - DeMerit - Boxall - Rochat

-'mento - Dunfield - Koffie - Teibert-

-------- Hassli ------ Harris ----------

Subs:
Cannon
Knight
Brovsky
Janicki
Khalfan
Tan
Camilo

Not a very strong squad but don't forget we can supplement this line up with all-stars like Vagenas, Morfaw, Duckett, and Mr. DP himself.. Jarju.

I never minded Khalfan. But holy smokes night and day difference. I'm coming over from the Island for the game. Went to the opener last year and it was a blast.

That Colorado shirt is brilliant.

It's a shame about Robson, he was a great player a few years ago.

First post on a hockey forum is about a football team haha.

Getting excited about reo Coker. Caps have done a nice job of cooking expectations and hype for him. Unlike robson and miller

It's the DP tag and nothing else. It's pretty standard line of thinking in soccer than when you change cultures in soccer it takes 1-1.5 years to really settle in. It's hard enough as is but this will give Nigel a chance to get used to the MLS.

Anyone happen to have a stream of the 'Caps game? Hard to find legit viewing venues in the Eastern US.

Wonder in any #Canucks fans at the #Whitecaps game will get thrown out for being quiet #VWFC

And of course, the Whitecaps official Twitter feed decided to retweet this

TSN announcers really like TFC. Like, that's all they've talked about.

Every single play is dieing on his feet, brutal runs, brutal passing, everything just awful. (one good defensive play, that's it).

Rochat's passing has been pretty terrible also.

He's garbage. Only people who can't see this are apparently Rennie and the announcers. Guy is so obviously washed up and has conned the White caps into some let career bucks.

Will not attend a game till they get him off the team.

Orca we never agree, the fact we are right now is scary.

I can't belive how some people are saying miller is playing well. he is losing every battle, has not made a good cross or pass, and can't shoot.

Ridiculous

Seriously? I don't think so at all... If anything this has felt like a Whitecaps broadcast to me. They've focused a lot on new players in general. I've noticed much more on the 'Caps, frankly -- most of what they've said about TFC is how bad they were last year.
