"Total joke. Total joke. What more can you say? You’re trying to grow a league, you’re trying to raise the quality across the board, you’re trying to give the Canadian Championship the respect that it deserves because it’s a trophy and we want to win it. How, ultimately, that you get put into a position where you have to play two games in three days is beyond me [and] laughable."

-- Toronto FC captain Michael Bradley on his team's upcoming schedule -- the first leg of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday at Montreal and an MLS game on Friday at home against the New England Revolution. (SportsNet)

    That is nuts. Sounds like some of the schedules colleges deal with. Never heard of the Canadian Championship. Is it like the Open Cup?

    Yes, Canadian teams are not eligible for the US Open Cup (or for CCL qualification through MLS) so this is the Canadian version and actually the only way a Canadian team can qualify for the CCL. Bradley's right of course that this schedule is absurd and guarantees Toronto will play a reverse squad for the Canadian Championship game.

    The winner of this cup is Canadas lone entrant in CCL.
