Not taking anything away from Solar, never seen them play, but TopDrawer is nothing but a puppet mouthpiece for ECNL.

I clicked on that link and something jumped out that does not line up with your statement.

I agree...topdrawer is the ECNL mouthpiece...and they seem to be socal fans, but their ranking is better than anything else out there...at least for u14s.

Giving up zero goals with that kind of scoring distribution is a big statement. Its looking like Texas conference ecnl is as top heavy as predicted, but by U15 I wouldn't surprised if we end up with at least 3 NTX teams in the topdrawer top 10.

Every time I see this I chuckle...  Do you think maybe, they focus on where the concentrated talent is and who historically has produced top players and teams?  Take the DFW area for example and using the roughly 70 different girls that tried out for Feet as the median.  That means roughly 350 of the presumably top 450 DFW 01's tried out for ECNL, (I do understand some tried out for multiple teams).  That equates to about 20 teams.  Do you think maybe that that waters down the rest of the area teams?  Should TopDrawer spend their resources searching for the few Kicks 01' teams out there, (they do recognize Kicks, TopHat, ect...).

70 girls showed up to feet tryouts so the area is watered down and feet is stacked? Were tryouts invitation only? Not sure I follow...u trying to give me a laugh since I made you chuckle? LOL. Ok you got me.

Topdrawer will recognize non ecnl teams until u15...after that it becomes nearly all ECNL. I see the socal bias when NTX 01 teams drop like a rock if they lose a game (i.e. Texans and Sting) while socal teams with equivalent or worse results remain highly ranked (blues, slammers).

And I call them the mouthpiece because ECNL marketing campaigns hit topdrawer front page simultaneously with ecnl site, and ecnl links a TON of their content direct to topdrawer articles written by topdrawer staff. Its brilliant marketing, but I would be surprised if there is no shared ownership or other financial relationship between ECNL and Topdrawer.

That said, their rankings are far better than gotsoccer and its northeast points shams, and solar deserves kudos for turning heads with their start to ECNL. Hopefully there will be plenty avenues for the others to join the party before the year is out. Should be at least 4 Ntx in top 15 if the area maximizes its potential, and maybe there's a slim chance the rest of the "watered down" leftovers find the strength to carry on.

I know you are a self proclaimed numbers guy but the reading comprehension can't be that bad, (maybe you got into the ever elusive bottle of scotch), where is KD when you need him?  I addressed everything in you rebuttal in the first response.  Not everything is a conspiracy to keep the "little teams that could" down...

I miss KD too. Smart dude. Have to wonder whether on his worst day he could have let slip a post with such logic! The #s were far fetched, yes, but I'm guessing the irony of you using dfeeters tryout headcount to make a case about "watered down" escapes you? I'll go easy on you out of respect for KD Very Happy
