I don't know how many questions there are, I only got to #5 before every team in NTX was eliminated. Guess we're doing gymnastics...

I'm normally in full agreement with you Bionic Cat but this time you're spewing propagandist crap!

Wow . . . MUST be a Coach/Manager problem OR your DD wasn't on a team in contention. I think ECNL has only been around for two years or maybe three. Don't think any club/team has had time to establish their dynasty yet, NTx or otherwise . . .

In my opinion both Texans and Sting have already established their soccer clubs as "dynasties" in all of Womens Soccer. In fact both clubs may be the best run in the USA. However, I believe none of the individual teams within both clubs will ever become "dynasties" or reach their full promise because the clubs can't or don't want or know how to deal with some of the negatives or boost some of the positives on the list that I put forth.

Well, if you waited to put your DD in soccer based on your list, you will still be looking (if you live that long) when your great-grandchild is playing. Perfection is difficult to achieve. There have been (and will be) some really great teams, but I don't think any of them have (or will) hit perfection.

Life isn't perfect, and no amount of questions or rules or caveates will change that fact. People who look for perfection are blinded by their narrow vision to the fact that even imperfect moments can be great ones.

In the grand scheme of things is it really important for North Texas to dominate every league across the US (or known to mankind)? Will that help enable world peace or end world hunger? Will it create a league of super hero soccer players who dominate the world? Somehow, I think not. Very Happy 

Personally, I want to understand why my DDs' feet just went through another growth spurt and the shoes I bought her three months ago no longer fit. I want to know why clubs insist on changing uniforms in bits and pieces every year? I want to know why LH, NTSA, Clubs and Home Associations all want different information all within a week of signing?

After these questions are answered, of course I want world peace.

Cool

Just for giggles I asked my DD what she felt was important when considering a soccer team. Her reply: FOOD.

I blame InaB and her cupcakes. Wink

My Nickname says it all for my DD. It's been, what, 8 or 9 years, and she still wants her snacks after a game! She would love the cupcake offer but it is just too far to drive. All about the food! LOL

Winning a championship requires a perfect storm of coaching, talent, chemistry and even luck (good seeding, no injuries, etc.). No checklist will ever help to identify a National Championship team.

Even in the professional world where you have the best teams money can buy it doesn't happen. See: Barcelona, Los Angeles Lakers, NY Yankees, etc.

Funny how we all assess likes/dislikes and where we fit in. Years ago my niece went on a college tour, which included Baylor. When she returned home I asked her what she thought knowing that she atteneded a few classes, met with recruiters, toured the beautiful campus. Her response...."well, I don't really like green and gold". Go figure. She wound up choosing a school across the border.

Hummmm, now that I think about it.....I don't really like crimson and cream ;-)

She cheered for them....and loved it...but I think it was more about her "delta-delta-delta" experience than the school specifically. But she did make some great life long friendships...and that is important to do SOONER than later, right?

I admit it, I keep the team well oiled with cupcakes and cookies. Nothing like dangling that carrot (cake). cheers  We take out of area visitors too!

Well that must mean the year over year champions are different every year and it is only a statistical amount of time before a NTX team wins.... cheers cheers
