I'd love them to sign Bernier and Klukowski. They need canadians and those are good ones at key positions. Maybe Beaulieu-Bourgault too. I don't think Olivier Occéan wants to come to America, sadly. He would be a good striker. Maybe Kevin McKenna who plays in the Bundesliga.
the impact never invested in the youth and always went with the $ ... if they keep going down that road, their first move is to sign a duo of old farts from the EPL to ridiculous amounts of money. Something like ... sol campbell and Di canio ... hahah

montreal WILL not have time to set up a sustainable farm club, they will be buyers, and they are about to put the $$$ on the table ... they will HAVE to if they intend to lose by less than 5 goals on a regular basis.

We played at parc Laurier (Synthetic) the first year and at St-Jean (Winter), and then we played on the new synthetic field beside the school in the summer, the ''dome'' in Longueuil during the winter.

But yeah... there's problems there too; Sport-Étude at College Francais, it's such a joke. When we were kids we thought we were training hard but really it was a vacation. We thought it was impossible to play pro later on (because we're in Canada) so we weren't serious, but it's not true. If the coaches would've actually did their job and train us hard everyday telling us it's possible to make it in Canada, I'm sure I could've played pro to be honest. We didn't even know coaches from american universities went to our games scouting us, the coaches didn't care at all and told us nothing so we were clueless and just playing for fun. We never did Strenght and Conditionning at all it was such a joke this Sport-Étude thing...

Sometimes Olivier Ocean and Patrice bernier came to play with us so that was pretty neat, but aside from that, the coaching staff didn't care at all. For example, Zhoran Jancovic (a coach) told us to do some ''mini-games'' and then he would just walk away and smoke a cigarette... ha!

Patrick Leduc was an horrible coach but he brought a good point (http://legrandclub.rds.ca/profils/bl.../117845/public) not too long ago on rds.ca he said ''notre soccer récréatif est trop compétitif et notre soccer compétitif est trop récréatif.''

He's right; I got some friends playing in ''inter-ville'' and they're horrible, but they think their soccer is serious buisness and that they're actually good. And in AAA, it's a joke to be honest, last practice we had, we were 7 on the field lol, it's not serious enough.

A lot of work needs to be done for Soccer in Canada especially with the coaches.

this is the key and has been the problem for ever. The CSA recently pushed trough some major reforms to re-define the way they function and the power structure of the CSA. Sadly , this reform will only be done in a transition over the next five years. Essentially, the provinces were previously given way to much power and sought to retain these powers. This led to a dysfunctional national federation with every province seeking to retain what's best for them. When the ASA tried to push the reform through , the CSA cronies (backed by QC btw, did some dirty back dealing, and used many dirty tricks to remove their opponents). Nevertheless , after much drama, we may see the light at the end of the (very) dark tunnel.

When the big problem at top will be solved, and that the right people are assigned to the job, I certainly hope we'll see results trickle down. This however will not be immediate and Canadian Soccer is not out of the dark yet.

it might look like a joke now, and it probably is, but its still a large step forward compared to what was done before ; nothing. It just needs to evolve...and it likely will... its a slow process.

when AAA went back to the cities instead of the regions, that's how we ended up with most of the problems we have today. There was enough good coaches to support the club I played for, F.C. select, and there was even the old koztec comming over to give us advices after games. The things is, there is NOT enough qualified coaches to apply that structure to all cities... so they lost a lot of quality... they lost the top of the pyramid by doing that.

as for pat leduc, I played a provincial final and he never showed up (he was ass.coach), I actually liked him as a coach for the tips he gave me in the more physical games, but not sure he was as committed as he is now that his playing career is over.

pretty good start. Soccer, ufc and interbox is a solid start. The rest is filler. I hear CKAC gets pretty decent ratings with their blue jays game. I was also under the impression that they were also going to do NCAA basketball or NBA, something like that...could be wrong

I am pretty sure they bought the rights to broadcast the march madness. This is something i don't understand. Why NCAA basketball and no NBA ?


Also , i think that NCAA hockey would be more popular than its basketball counterpart but i am sure that Péladeau will get the QMJHL rights in a near future and promote the league since he now owns a team. I guess he would not be interested in broadcasting his rival league.

Nope, Bell bought that.

TSN 2 and RDS 2 will broadcast it.

Peladeau is preparing the ground for the Nordiques' comeback in Quebec...

Bettman must like the arrival of this new player in the NHL broadcast world.

I thought about this tweet alot. Good comparison.

The more I think about it, the more I know this channel is doomed to suck. I am sure it will be filled with re-broadcasts of fringe events, and overly colorful and not informative guys in the style of Chantelois.

I have visions of this episode of "Amazing Boxing Knockouts" on RDS, where the commentator was saying,"it is coming up....NOW..... eh... maybe a little later....NOW.....eh...". It was so obvious he had not even prepared or watched the clips before broadcasting, and they did not go back and re-do it... the worst insult to sportscasting I had ever seen.

This is the standard I think TVA is destined to reach for.

Not that I know about anything going on in canada's soccer world, but from reading your posts, it looks like it's awful. I agree that the higher soccer teams deserves coach the same caliber as the CHL are getting. We are never going to get better if we don't teach our young soccer players to be disciplined like we do with our hockey players.

If Quebec can have a building assured for 2014-2015 and no buyer comes through in Phoenix next season, then Quebec is getting a team.

- Play 2 seasons at the old Colisee (which Bettman said was ok as long as a building is being built in the meantime)

- Have a super rich owner with an own sports channel to broadcast all the games.

I am sure Bettman tried to save Phoenix but if no buyer is found for a 3rd straight season, he will do like Atlanta and GTFO of there.

Dans le cadre de matchs de ces deux formations en Ontario, Sportsnet sera présent avec ses caméras et ses équipes. Mais dorénavant, nous les supporterons avec des caméras supplémentaires et nos effectifs. Par ailleurs, Jacques Doucet et Rodger Brulotte seront présents au Rogers Centre de Toronto tandis que les Rinfret, Pedneault et Ciccone seront en poste à Ottawa.
Interesting.

Gotta say it already looks better than RDS. I mean, RDS were doing games from Ottawa but they used the Sportsnet feed. Now, TVA will have their equipments aswell.

It's the only hockey TVA has. RDS has their team to every Habs games, so it's already better than having to hear Rinfret and Pednault doing games of a crappy team for 3 hours.
