This is the third and final interview looking at the origins of the Cascadia Cup.
In this installment Nevets talks with John Knox [aka Johnniemonster], a founding member of the Vancouver Southsiders. Johnnie was a great person to interview as he was one of the original Vancouver fans to sign on to the fan created Cascadia Cup. This interview runs just over 16 minutes.

The Cascadia Cup from the start has always been a Supporter’s Cup, conceived and financed by the supporters of the three Cascadia clubs. Each year, members of the three clubs, in the spirit of fair play, decide how the cup is to be contested that current year. Decisions regarding the competition have traditionally been made with a 2/3 thirds majority vote.
That’s why The Soccer Don’s statements are a joke:
“We’re very confident that by communicating with [Cascadia supporters] better and just talking about what our plans are that they’ll be pleased that we’ve got their interest and the interest of the league in mind.” – Don Garber [MLS Commissioner]
