Debacle! Canadian Teams Out of USL 1
Now here's something interesting. United Soccer League's CEO Nick Papadakis told a Canadian radio station that "the negotiations are finished" and Vancouver and Montreal are out of the league for 2010. Neither club has issued a statement though so perhaps this is just a hardball tactic on the part of the honchos at USL 1.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out though, particularly how the departure of these 2 clubs would effect the Nutrilite Canadian Championship and CONCACAF Champions League qualification next year. I have 5 bucks & a Badonkadonk Land Cruiser that says that Montreal plays somehow, some way, in some league next year; no way that brand-new stadium of theirs goes vacant so soon.
