I signed up to a Canadian soccer streaming site today so I can watch my adopted CPL team Forge FC. They played the first ever CPL game today vs York9 at The Tim and it ended a 1-1 draw. That game was played at a higher level than the one tonight at RBA.

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

The ways of MF are mysterious and incomprehensible.

I also watched that match. It was USL1 level, tops.
Then again, that's kinda what our match tonight looked like.

The CanPL tried to prevent Ottawa from playing in "an American league" by calling FIFA to ban them from the USL. It sounds like they will be forced into CanPL next season.
148 signed players, with over 30 International players and Blake Smith is the only American in the league.
There is a difference in wanting to grow the sport in your nation and blatantly bashing and trying to derail it in another.

Ottawa should've brought up Cardiff, Swansea, Wrexham, Berwick Rangers, Monaco ect. Hell, mention TFC, Montreal and Vancouver. How would the Canadian federation even have a leg to stand on?

It had a lot to do with CONCACAF being the main CanPL proponents and CONCACAF trying to move them to CanPL.

Meanwhile, they had no issues with TFCII in USL1.

TBF, Ottawa had expressed interest in CanPL prior to deciding to stay with the USL, but that was months before the start of the season.

I did not expect much in the way of highlights,
when half the video was the anthem.

Crowd seemed larger than at RBA.
Although I doubt the reported 17,611.
