TORONTO - While the LA Galaxy released a game poster with head coach Bruce Arena riding an eagle holding MLS cup in front of a waving American flag, Toronto FC have decided to respond with a poster that references the upcoming Canada Day on July 1st.
The poster from Toronto FC will contain a giant maple leaf background with Ashtone Morgan riding a moose while Morgan is holding iconography depicting universal healthcare, higher educational standards and a general satisfied feeling of Canadian well being.
"It's been difficult for us to find the right blend of jingoistic belief combined with sports iconography, but we think we have found a way" said Toronto FC poster designer Jeremy Redding. "While we may not have an MLS cup to lord over our brothers to the south, we believe that our perspective on the betterment of Canada as a whole is a healthier way to express ourselves. I mean it took the United States forever to pass equal marriage laws that have been on the books for 10 years up here. They are just hilariously behind the times."
