You guys should mute the Toronto hate in light of the recent tragedy up there.

I hate TFC. I think the city of Toronto is wonderful. I don't think there's a soul on this board who is at all intending to be disrespectful about the tragedy that occurred.

Not all was lost. We won the CONCACAF Champion's League Fair Play Award! 

Which is more than TFC won in this tournament.

 

And, while it's much easier for a Canadian team to qualify for CCL, it's not a given that they will even be in the 2019 tournament.  They only have one path to qualification.


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

While true, the two-leg domestic cup format is way more forgiving.  Toronto's got a near automatic berth in the final because they play either an amateur/semi-pro provinicial team or Ottawa in the semifinal and...have you seen Vancouver and Montreal?

 

I'd give them like, an 80% chance of qualifying.

that's low-balling it, too. ever since TFC started dropping $$$ on players, they've run away with the Canadian Championship. And with Vancouver and Montreal being more frugal, they don't have the roster to win it, imo. it'll be 5 yrs before they can actually have a proper quarterfinal bracket, only 4 pro teams with the semi-pro Ontario and Quebec provincial champs (Div3).


RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.

 

RIP Cesar Castello and Mike Vallo

Major League Soccer is under a curse and I will never be happy until this curse is broken.

All 3 MLS teams start in the semifinal - this year its TFC vs the lower brackets and Vancouver vs. Montreal.  So it's only one 2-legged final that either Montreal or Vancouver would have to win.  Daunting but possible, Montreal knocked them off in the first year with Giovinco etc. only to lose to Vancouver in the final.

Doubtful that TFC loses the CanChamp.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.
