Toronto FC fans want less Drake and more actual winning
Toronto FC has partnered up with OVO and fine-list artist Mister Cartoon on a clothing collection that fans agree is just as shambolic as their season.
The collection includes players Jonathan Osorio, Richie Laryea, and Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty rocking the three-piece collection, which includes a hoodie, t-shirt, and shorts.

OVO and TFC paid homage to the city through an intricately designed logo that combines the OVO owl with a soccer ball, the CN tower, and a maple leaf.
It's hard to peel your eyes off the collection as the TFC red mixes with Drake's OVO gold, creating what could be a decent selection for this summer.
However, fans were quick to judge the need for a clothing collection based on how poorly the season has gone.
This Football club concerns itself with selling merchandise and not getting wins in the field. #TFClive On top of it the majority of folks can't afford the Drake, OVO, TFC collaboration with the way things are going these days.— M M C (@M3L0C) May 19, 2023
Toronto FC currently sits dead last in the standings, boasting just two wins on the season.

Pathetic performance from TFC, that's never a second yellow on JMR, but no time for excuses.
This team is poor, time to start over. Bob Bradley better not be the coach tomorrow morning.
As fans worry where TFC's focus lies, the team hasn't done much to make them feel better.
In late March, Lorenzo Insigne, who's currently signed to a $15 million-a-year contract, had a jacket produced by OVO. Fans were quick to take action on Twitter, saying "More OVO drops than games played this year. Well done."

The capsule includes a new signature track jacket, alongside a re-release of last year's original drop designed to celebrate Insigne's arrival to the 6.

And at that time, the fan was right.
Insigne, at the time of release, had only played one match due to a calf injury. At this point in the season, the talisman has only scored once for The Reds.
With the season going the way it is, TFC might be better off trying to net more goals than OVO profit this summer.
