Shame on those for thinking that the ECNL kids couldn’t complete.  That especially goes to all those ECNL parents that won’t admit that they had their doubts as well. Both leagues have their positives and both have their negative.  Sure, a girl can get to the promised land with either.  Honestly, there is no right or wrong for a parent picking either system.

With that said, DA is in its infancy and will surely grow in reputation and stature.  Time will tell if ECNL will be able to hold onto its grip as a 1a 1b alternative.  I have my doubts.  That doesn’t mean that it will still not be a great avenue for talented girls getting into great colleges or even a sniff at the nationals.

Fantastic ^ and extremely well put Kmp -- Thank you for your level headedness.

But SoSy ... Bubby.  Just catching up after another long day out at the fields, and man ... after reading your stuff today, I just have to put my head in my hands.  I really didn't think it was this bad.  A grown man so obsessed and emotionally caught up that you've literally created this demented, and completely false, image of me (you mentioned "sad").  Poor fella Neutral

Sooo ... obviously you weren't out there this week to see the soccer (not that it would've mattered given your palpable lack of understanding of it).  I'm sure that playing a grand total of 40 minutes of soccer more than 7 hours prior exhausted the 13 year old kids from Albion and D'Feeters  Shocked .  And DefDad is right about one thing ... I will ask you to show me where I'm "touting the GDA system" over ECNL.  What I have done is provided simple, honest answers your vacuous questions such as, "Are there really any differences between ECNL and DA?".

From the beginning, I've said that all GDA did was take the place of ECNL amongst most of the top ECNL clubs across the nation (inarguable when you look at the history of the ENCL when compared to which clubs accepted GDA designations last Spring).  Hence giving GDA a higher concentration on top talent across the nation (inarguable based on the former point).  Hence I believe that the GDA will be a superior vehicle for our kids to achieve their goals of playing college soccer at the school of their choice -- Having college coaches attend more than half of our training sessions this year (sometimes more than a dozen at a time), plus having a US Soccer rep at our league matches helps a touch in that regard wouldn't ya say?

NE-E-E-VER, Sir, have I mentioned that there weren't stronger cubs and teams in ENCL that were certainly capable of beating some GDA teams.  In fact, I've literally written the exact opposite (even recently predicted that FCD U14 DA would lose to Sting ... and that's a whole other convo  Neutral )

What I posted this morning is exactly spot on ... These matchups were simply top team at this club, vs top team at that club.  And yes, I can clearly say with confidence (as can any unbiased, smart soccer person that saw the teams play) that the majority of the '04 talent here lies on the Solar and FCD rosters.  And I know it pains you to come to terms with this, but you know this to be the case if you're honest with yourself as well.

Now before you become so emotional with rage after reading this, take a deep breath and know that I'm not saying that the Sting kids, the D'Feeters kids and the Albion kids (and all the rest of the ECNL kids) aren't talented.  I'm not saying their parents made the wrong choice, that those kids aren't capable of playing college soccer, or that GDA is "better" than ECNL ... es gonna be ok big guy.

Again Sir (this goes for you and all of the your lil' lackeys), I have absolutely zero need to"dodge" ... Any of you ask me a legitimate question, you will receive a legitimate answer.  If ya have one ... shoot  Very Happy

BTW ... most of my prognostications for the week came through didn't they -- must just be that I got lucky ... again Wink

p.s. May wanna chill on the language and defamation (to use a term from your profession) a bit ... otherwise you might find ole SoSy prematurely retired here (or you could just go back to 'silliness')  pirat

(How's that for a 'lack of debate' DefDad?)

He is Risen!


From the looks of things this weekend, maybe they should be spending more time at Sting ECNL practices.

Did you know that D'Feeters 03 ECNL and D1 practices have had at least one college coach at almost all of their training sessions this season?    Wink

This is not a new trend. ECNL did the same thing to USYSA. It took two maybe three years before domination.

Hell, if sting is not careful you might see D’feeters take that DA bid.

Looked to be some great soccer played all week to me, ECNL or DA, didn’t matter. All the college scouts were watching and I’m pretty sure they didn’t care either. At least the ones I know didn’t even mention the leagues. As far as where the majority of the talent went last summer? Who cares? That will change multiple times in the next few years. I think the clubs are driving this debate and if your concerned about college scouts attending your practices at u14/15 then your a foooool, let’s see who gets the calls at u16/17 when it actually matters. Both DA and ECNL platforms work, be proud of your kids and encourage them to push harder.

Praise the lord, he has risen indeed!!!

Funny SoS -- It's as if you were there to see 'em.    

Right there behind the driving back and forth to Ft Worth, the 15-30-20-25 minutes halves, and our own performance against them, the level of that Sting team was really disappointing (they'd likely say the same about us) ... We all expected much more given what we've seen in the past from them and their record so far this year.  Albion was better.  Maybe it was just the conditions that led to the slop -- Oh well ... That's the way soccer go.  

And love the jab ... touche.  PH is a friend and a respectable coach.

I love you

Guess the world may never know..... Sad

It has been almost a week so I guess I should insert my humble opinions on DIGC.  

1 - The weather could have really ruined it but luckily we had some of the best days you can get in the NTX Spring for the back end of the tournament.  I will never understand why the folks that run this thing every year do not have 20 turf fields ready to play on in the event of weather.  This is Dallas/Plano/Frisco where there are a ton of fancy private schools that are usually done with sports that need a turf field during the day and would probably be open to letting a high profile event use a field for a couple of hours.  Hell they might even like the exposure to their campuses for us dumb, overspending soccer parents.  But if you are going to market and try to attract teams that come from all over the globe, you better be ready to have facilities available that will allow these international teams that have spent a lot of money to come to NTX to actually play soccer.

2 - There is only one elite 04 team.  The great thing about DIGC was that it allowed all of the teams to play each other.  That of course did not actually happen but it allowed us fans and observers to see the teams from different leagues play in close proximity, some against each other, others against common opponents.  And given that only FCD GDA stood out among the others.  They have the athletes and delivered on the field.  Albion ECNL, Sting ECNL, and D'Feeters ECNL are equally as good as Solar GDA, if maybe only right on their heals.  Having a vantage point on both the quarterfinal and semifinal games I could easily see the three ECNL teams beating Solar, especially given the discussion many have had on how the shortened games benefited the weaker teams.  And I will just walk away from the controversial call at the end of the D'Feeters-Solar semifinal.   Shocked  But the perceived gap between DA and ECNL only exists with one team.  Also the other benefit to the close proximty of play was the ability to hear the chatter out on the fields, that we normally only get on this forum or by  private message.  Wink

3 - The limited substitution rule was stupid.
