So specs don’t seem to show dual cards or dual DIGIC, so the 90D isnt any sort of 7D2/80D compromise. It’s just an updated 80D.

I’m a Canon fan, but I really think they made a mistake dumping the 7D range.

But at least Canon just saved me $1500 as I won’t be buying a 90D anytime soon.

Who said Canon dumped the 7D line? Can you show a link for such a statement?

You can't believe all of the rumors around. Save your money and wait for the 7D3 or for an announcement from Canon saying that it isn't coming. I would expect to spend a little more than $1500, though.

It’s been 5 years now. This should have been the point at which it was released, and....we got a reheated 80d instead, which was also way overdue. At this point, yeah, pretty disappointed Canon owner. Will they release a 7d3 next year? At this point, I doubt it.

The 2020 Tokyo olympics is one likely reason to delay a sports focused body by a year or so. Release in the spring and do a big marketing push in the summer, rather than releasing now and spending a lot of money advertising something a year old.

Nikon has got it right - make a development announcement for the D6 (and a sports-focused lens) now, launch it much nearer to the Olympics. Any marketing response from Canon now runs the risk of looking like a "me too", but I don't doubt there will also be a 1DX2 successor in a similar time frame.

Whether there will be 7D2 and D500 successors is less clear, but my money is on a yes to both.

I just don't understand how being secretive about future camera releases makes any sense at all.  Of course, the actions of camera companies don't have to make sense to me, but it is still hard to fathom what they are thinking. If you are not going to say when, at least say if.....
