Yes, you are right, big daddy's money will land a DD on the ECNL roster of 22. Then big daddy and fancy momma can pay for the top performers to play while DD warms the bench and hands out water, - but hey, they can tell everyone that their DD is plays ECNL. I guess its a win-win for everyone - bro.
only if it was that way. In this case, that money will get more than a roster spot. And I see you didn't touch the politics piece. :-) and why you trippin on "Bro"?

Any word on the $&%#storm that is about to hit? Here are some rumblings I've heard:

SRSA... Change is coming... How much change will be the question? Player turnover 5+?

Solar Gold... Should stay the course may make a few adjustments.

FCD... Should stay the course unless LW shows up with his team.

LW to Solar; FCD; FEET; Texans.... What I do know is that they are committed to staying together as a unit. The color of next years uniform is the only question?

Sting G self implosion.... Change is a comin...

Sting Hilton moving on?.... Will coach stay on with the new dd from California solidifying their D1 spot and will the other dd's stay now that things are looking up.

Fever self implosion.... Where will they go? What will they do? Releases have been given...

Cosmos losing some players... you can only take so much YELLING! Sorry, the guy looks like a teenage kid getting angry when he doesn't get his way. However, the team does look better than the last time that I saw them.

DT South self implosion... Will they be able to field a team with numbers?

DT Scott... Where do you begin... relegation is inevitable. What next?

LP Keegan... Never should have been in D1 to begin with.

How am I doing Herradura? Go ahead and let us know what will happen...[/quote]



Barca - speaking of rumblings.....any chance of a merger with FEVER and LP KEegan.   Pun intended.  Why the silence on the two Red Cards / rumble.

This season has shown that there are 3 "must see" parent sideline match-ups to watch out for next year. Never mind the kids on the field, I'm grabbing popcorn and a chair whenever these six groups of locos go toe to toe!
1) LP Keegan/Fever 03
2) DTS/Elite 04
3) LP Elite/Rush 05
Taking reservations now!

Tryouts are posting and the season is not over. So, do you go to your practice or do you go to the practice of the team that you're looking at?

That very discussion going on among fathers on our team.
And what lessons do we teach the girls by skipping practice (a commitment) for a pursuit, possibly of fancy?
But with so little time to search, are we dis-serving those girls who want to move or could do better elsewhere by staying with a team we plan to leave?

And what are you teaching them by switching teams ever year. Certainly isn't anything about commitment. Or team building.

You are teaching them to go with a winner!! Shocked

But seriously, if you KNOW you are leaving, it's time to go.

Just my opinion.

Why not build a winner with the team you're already on instead of switching teams every season. What about continuity and something I like to call sticktuativeness.

Interesting...... If there is as much movement as expected then some girls may be moving to a team that may be losing key/quality girls. You have to choose the right team and that being a team where both player and parents fit in. (Unless the parents are like some parents I've seen- always on their phone not paying attention to their dd). GOODLUCK to ALL, especially my dd and I!!!

The problem is that you will not know who is moving or not right now because if my dd wanted to leave, I would tell her that she has to finish her committment before we can move on. Then again, teams that may have a few spots open may be inclined to look at dds during the first two weeks of June only.

Question for the coaches: Do you want the dd that will leave their team in June with league games left or the one who sticks to the wording of the contract and finishes the season then looks? This is a tough spot to be in and can define or expose a person....

From Peter Roe, a little over an hour ago...

"The board has been meeting since Thursday to work out an end of season plan and I didn't have an answer for many of your questions. Last night we reviewed a proposal that ends the spring without playing any more games. It appears this proposal will be approved by the board. We still have to get input from coaches and DOCs. We hope to have a formal announcement late today or tomorrow"

Wow!! This should make things interesting as far as creating debate with parents from teams that will feel cheated out some way either relegated and/or missed out on becoming division winner, etc... It needed to happen. The picture of RR park on the LH website is telling of what this last month has been like.

While my DD is on a team facing relegation, which if the season ended now and point totals stand then we'd be relegated. While no one loves that I'd feel more disappointed for kids who earned promotion and did not get it.

Hard life lesson. Life is not always fair. It's how we deal with the pain and disappointment that defines champions.

Good thing is, these 03s are just 6th/7th graders. Plenty of time to make things up down the road.

Good luck to all and here's to next season, hopefully a drier one.

Does anyone know if above post applied just to the U12's or all age groups. Peter Roe is the U12 age group commissioner.

Sounds like it will go throughout (same msg to 00s). It isn't a perfect solution, but better than any other alternative I have seen to this point.

No way to create a more fair solution to all teams than to average it out. They can make an allowance for an 11-team league if there is a tie.

I would expect that the points and current standings will be where things stand. Unless we move to a co-champion like the Big-12 did this past year. I'm sure there will be an Art B. in the crowd. Very Happy
