Soccer teams from Canada were, reportedly, outraged as the rampant discrimination in the US Open Cup tournament continued for the 105th year with the announcement that not one single Canadian team made the tournament.
Halifax men's soccer teams Athens Too and Metro Mariners FC stated that they complied with every necessary requirement to enter the tournament only to grievously be overlooked for the United States championship.
"We are a strong Canadian team from Halifax. We aren't going to be afraid of some MLS team with their money," stated Mariners player John Jorgenson. "Just wait til they have to come here to play a game, then we will show them how to play."
Calls to US Soccer were not answered as The Nutmeg News searched for reasons as to why there is such discrimination against Canadian teams.
"We don't know why this keeps happening," stated director of Timbit procurement for Athens Too Stephen Harper. "We just know that one day a Canadian team will have a chance to play for the US Open Cup if we just keep working at it."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as we chase down an answer from US Scocer on their rampant discrimination.
