Nice catch indeed - Sting Flannagan could have reached 38 points. Didn't notice that they had 5 games left.

I am still curious about the number of games that will be played. If there had been 9 teams in D1, each team would play 16 games. Dropping to 12 teams would give each team 11 games. That's a big difference (of course some teams only played 13 games this season).

So would we still do Fall and spring 11 games each?

Or do we get to overpay for another thing in North Texas Soccer and pay the full amount to LHGCL and only play 11 games total???

If this is the case they should spend the extra money on TOP Quality Refs

Or maybe, since all of the old rules are changing, just make 2 divisions of 15 for ease of scheduling? Once you have adjusted so much, what's a little more bending?

And do the divisions self-correct next year to 9 teams in D1 and so on?

And did you know that Valyrian steel could kill a white walker?!?

I think that would be an excellent way of settling this mess. Instead of going down to 29 Classic League teams for this age group, leave it at 30 with two divisions of 15. That's 14 games for each team, 7 in the fall and 7 in the spring with everyone playing their division mates once.  Top 9 finishers in D1 remain in D1 the following year. Bottom 6 in D1 plus top 4 in D2 would make up D2 the following year. The next 6 in D2 could make up D3 and the bottom 5 go back into next years QT with 4 spots available in D3 for those trying to get in.  The only caveat would be if a team that would've normally been locked into a D2 spot this year ends up having a bad year next year (injuries, etc.). They go from a situation where they normally would've been relegated to D3 to, under this new system, having to try and re-qualify. Unfortunately, I don't think there's a solution where everyone's gonna be happy.

Common "Good4nuthin" Knowledge:
Solar - Kevin Smith moves to Texans leaving the Solar USSF boys academy in Solca and Castro's lap.
FC Dallas - Coach wants to have his first team roster set before he leaves on vacation.
Sting - 4+ strong LH teams and AG is still on the phone recruiting.
Liverpool - Top team is pretty much set.
Texans - Looking to infuse some new blood to a solid core (and great group of girls and parents, might I add  Very Happy ).
Texans South - Never count Gabe out. He will show up with a strong team.

Don't know much about anyone else.

Although I did see on the Solar press release that they claim to be the oldest continuous soccer club in DFW, starting in 1976.

I believe Sting started in 1973 which would make them the oldest continuously run club in the metroplex.

So in essence, if Sting Sanchez were to run the table in D2 and go undefeated next season, they're destined to be in D2 again for the following season. That sucks!

It would seem that there should be a mid season adjustment similar to what Plano did last year to reset the divisions

Doesn't seem like the storm of S--- that seemed to be coming. Any word on a LW move to somewhere?? Noise I was hearing seems to be minimized with the everybody is in D1 announcement. SMH!! Let's hope for something to make things more interesting in the next few weeks or it will be a long season of silence.

No my understanding will be the bottom 6 (maybe 7) in D1 will be relegated to D2
The winner of D2 will be promoted to D1
The bottom 4 in the new D2 will be sent to QT
The next 6 will form the new D3 and the others will stay in D2.

So they switched clubs and changed jersey color. How does that change the 03 landscape? Its not like Premier and Elite are going to blend into a super team ... At least not until ECNL.

Shouldn't change the landscape much unless being with an ECNL club helps LW add a few players that may not have looked at them back when they were with LP. Now the talent pool for ECNL did get a lot deeper over there at FCD and puts them back in the mix with Sting and Solar when ECNL tryouts start. The one thing I do find refreshing about the Elite team is that it seems like they actually like each other, I never hear much about team jumping or players looking from that team.

Ok, I'm really hoping that there will be more rumblings because if all we get is one team switching to a new club and staying intact that's going to be a boring June. Don't let me down 03's.
