Yes you are correct on that. Her situation is unique in that respect. However, she should have been signed with ECNL. Phenomenal player who is clearly ECNL caliber.

I suppose consistently doing it makes it better. lol!


Both teams were in the International Cup.... she played with DTS=her team

I was kidding you btw. Don't know her, have no dog in the fight etc...do agree with sheets though, the clubs are destroying their money train. Saw a great article about youth soccer participation being down because of ap and this kind of bs.

Hey...I agree that those Texan kids should be punished...but it seems a bit harsh to make them miss out on all hs activities so they can get the same scholarship they would have gotten before. Have a heart.

I've no dog in the fight either but "texans" should be punished? Hilarious the excuses we all come up with to push other teams down while doing everything we can to get more playing time and exposure to other teams and players for our DD. Sometimes teams just lose. If your DD was dual rostered and wanted to and play on both teams you'd make it happen. But now it seems to be an issue bc the complaint comes from the losing team. Yes Jack this kinda stuff does ruin it but more for the parents and not the girls. The girls just want to play. But I hope my DD competes against them bc great games and competition is what we want. Not excuses.

You must be a parent of a defender on the team? Congrats on the team success this year but Im not sure what more do you want. Grado won a few games and now you expect everyone to crown them champs. Go travel, win a few major tournaments then come back and gloat. I would respect that more than you saying, Grado beat a team that DFeeters tied 1-1.

I don't expect anything from anyone.  I am simply casting my opinion that they're a decent team that works hard and is continuing to get better.  You almost come across as if you're somewhat worried that Grado could possible beat LPE.  I don't know if they can or cannot, but I wouldn't bet too much against them.  Just my $0.02...

Hey playah, no one questions them being a decent team. But what was being posted on here a while back is that they were good enough to beat darn near everybody in D1.  Where are y'all at? Couldn't even get out of bracket play. And your .02 is worth like .00 right about now.  Trust me, there were absolutely no worries about Grado beating LPE.

You really have no idea what I was talking about. That was about them having to go da so they can be punished. Nothing to do with what you're talking about.

Grado's 03's are a very good team. They dismantled D2 with ease just like a good D1 team should do. They tied #7 DT Red without a CM who is probably their best player. I don't remember anybody claiming that they were the top team in 03 but rather they might be good enough to be mentioned with the top tier. That could still be true. Let's see how they do in D1 when they're healthy. I don't know if they'll be able to get into the top tier of D1 but I'd put money on them being in the top half of D1.

Fair point. Even when Grado's stick together their previous competitors will be weakened by top players scattering to DA, ECNL and TCL.

Crawfishing going on now. Good enough to be mentioned with the top tier? What is top tier? Top 30? Maybe so. What was said directly/indirectly was that they could handle pretty much everybody in D1, but very careful not to say LPE or DTS, which was wise. Put money on them being in the top half of D1? As Kegsmen's comment suggests and you affirmed, with DA, ECNL and TCL, D1 next year will be like D3, at best D2, of the past, so way to go out on a limb with that prediction.

Nothing will be as it seems next year... for those that think Grado's team won't get plucked by ECNL and DA are also short sighted. All teams rolling into D1 next year will be new looks. Nothing will be for sure. So many of the top players from the top 4 teams are making moves to ECNL and/or DA now so that will look drastically different when next season rolls around. Since Grado is one of those teams that showed promise with so many good older players, the ECNL bug will bite (which I've already heard it has). So at the end of the day, no one will really care anymore about LPE or Grado or anyone else for that matter. Everything will have a whole new look come next season.
