A lot of effort by Grado peeps to argue that they're better than 4 teams.

I don't know that anyone's trying to argue that...no doubt they are better. As are sting d, Texans/mustangs and probably fcd wtx.

Last I checked, only 1 Grado parent on here - and I didn't see him arguing they were better than anyone.  He explained a little history and how the team has stayed together.

A lot more effort by peeps trying to argue they are not. Those 4 teams would not have fared nearly as well against Sweden and the Feel ECNL team.


Not surprising we haven't seen Lefty back here.  Probably choked on the crow.

Choked on the crow for sure. My whole point is that the Grado team is a team that has consistently gotten better over the past few years and for some reason it is taken the wrong way by many other folks on here when someone says something positive about them. I was actually accused of being a defender's parent...LOL - I'm not. I just like the way Grado takes a development approach as apposed to a win at all cost approach. State Cup will tell a lot more about them as a team.

Regarding Sting D being the best in D2...well that's up for debate, I guess, but the numbers don't lie. They, too, have a great team that doesn't stack their bench. I think they have one player that also plays ECNL. 71 GF & 3 GA - Grado vs 49 GF & 14 GA - Dunstan doesn't really signal that they're the best team in D2. Yes, Sting D beat Grado...in PK's! Hardly a strong measure.

For you not to be a Grado parent, you sure have stats on them, pub them and defend them all at the same time. Why won't you pub your own dd's team? AHHH HAAA!! You are already. Grado is having one great season only (2016-2017).. Lets talk about last year.. Is it because they are benefiting from age pure shift? If that wasn't the case, you won't be seeing results like you see below (2015-2016) season. Just stating facts..

And the numbers rarely tell the whole story - if you're 8th grade pure, have a big foot in the back and a couple fast girls in the front it's pretty easy to put up those kind of numbers on the other unimposing 7th grade stacked teams in D2. If you look at games vs. the top 5 in D2 it definitely paints a different picture. There's also running up the score and maybe others moved players around to different positions and took the foot off the gas - too many intangibles to say "the numbers don't lie". I've watch four of the five top teams in D2 and the margin is very thin save one maybe.

I guess I need to explain this to you spicey style. Imagine 3 Barbie dolls, mini barbi..middle Barbie and and amazon Barbie. Last year your barbie..:middle Barbie was jumping all over mini Barbie...who was a year younger than your lil barbie...so you were walkin around all happy talkin smack about your Barbie being all that. Then the soccer gods decided they didn't like this set up and decided they wanted to unleash King Kong Barbie on your lil mid Barbie. So these amazon barbies came out and jumped all over your old amazon Barbie...who is now a mini Barbie a year younger than them. Don't blame the new big barbies for whooping up on your now lil barbie. Not their fault. Now quit asking questions because you're pi$$ing me off.

Good thing you're not a fortune teller. Grado is in 4th, I believe and they went to the semi-finals in IC.

Ahhh, I missed Grado parents. Nobody better at screaming their success from the top of the highest mountain...even if it means grabbing a year old thread.
