#1373587 Shield will not be awarded this year

Posted by MetroFanatic on Today, 09:09 AM

Any discussion about the 2001 Shield?


Shield was awarded in 2001. Teams did not play equal number of games in 2001. What's there to discuss? Basic facts.

Honestly, the reason we're discussing it again is because of the reaction to the announcement, but even more than that, it's because Dan posted that it was awarded in 2001 even though not everyone played the same number of games. I'll be honest and say I did not know that and that changed my mind on it. That's precedent in my opinion.

 

Our original idea was to protect the integrity of the Shield due to an imbalanced number of games played. Now that we know this has been handled already, we are looking at it again.


Holy crap, if Toronto fans need to thank me for this trophy, I don't know how to react...

Vanney is so angry he cant get a trophy for beating up on Montreal and Vancouver over and over again.

He's gotten spoiled by the Canadian Championship.


Well, that is also true! Counting Toronto as a "treble" winner for winning that cupcake is completely absurd.

The players clearly care about it.

 

This was a wrong decision... although it would be pretty funny if the Worms don't get it.

2001 season, all teams did not play equal number of games.

 

Shield was awarded.




#1373354 Caden Clark to the 1st team

Is Clark already in the running for Hero of the Year? Shit, I don't know who it can even be at this point.

There is a clear benefit playing in the USL against "real" teams. Those teams CARE about the outcome. If there was a MLS reserve league, who would care?

Is Shep Barlow's agent? Seriously.

Decent enough second half was enough for three points.

Atlanta is not good this year


We are not good this year either.

 

3 SOG total the whole game for both teams COMBINED.
