Sting Black ECNL 07  Empty Sting Black ECNL 07

I've heard from multiple people that Sting Black ECNL 07 (Tatu) is dead in the water, with the kids left floating .. this week. Some TBD team will be sliding into the vacant ECNL team (heard different names, so won't speculate here), but Mariscal will be taking the "top" ECNL spot and might take a few players from Tatu's roster.

Absolutely horrible that Sting would let this happen .. at this time. Should have been done much earlier to lessen the burning of bridges with the affected families. Speaking for myself, I wouldn't consider a club if they let me know IN JUNE that the team I had been told my child had made .. simply no longer exists.

Way to go, Sting. Nice integrity, Antonio Pecorari.

I'll bite.

Royal lost three of his best players to other clubs. Plus whoever else may have drifted off this time of year. This would have changed the make up of that team significantly.

I think the decision was made to not have two average ECNL teams and make one stronger one.

Makes sense for Royal to move over to Black since Sting Royal ECNL (aside from U14 Royal) was near the bottom in all the other age groups.

If any club needed two ECNL teams it was Solar. Killed everyone in RL this year and then fell apart bored of the competition.

Some coach with a solid team (Adames, Fever-Penn, FCD West or East) needs to be calling Sting and asking for that spot right now. Can't imagine they would let any of the Sting RL teams (Black, Royal, Austin) become the Royal ECNL team. They finished 7th, 8th and 9th out of 10 with high negative goal differentials. I know Black and Royal were mostly Lake Highlands (nearly relegated from D1) girls that got moved up by politics and chance last year from what I was told. Explains the standings.

But Medina and his ECNL magic wand. You just never know.

This seems to be true with a lot of the Solar RL teams. It's a shame as those teams had the ECNL slot pulled out from under them last year and the slot was given to Sting Royal. Solar 2nd teams were middle of the pack ECNL teams, top of the league ECRL teams, and now many are falling apart as girls seek greener ECNL pastures.

It was definitely a huge error by ECNL and shows that politics still too often drive decision making. With Celtic relegated to RL, I imagine Royal can't be too far behind if next year isn't a substantial improvement on this year.

Do they still have a team? They apparently have one game left in their schedule…And their opponent (DKSC) needs the win!

Just about to watch the wheels come off this age group for Sting. Not what is meant by failing forward!

Is it true that Solar is picking the shiniest tassels off the Sting carcass in the 07, 06, and 05 age groups?
The rich get richer, I guess.

Sadly, if true, these girls are living by the old adage - if you can’t beat em, join em

Serves Sting and Kenny right. They didn't deserve a 2nd ECNl spot. Hopefully, this gets taken and we get back to 5 ecnl spots, 6 too many IMHO. Think FCD got a few in at least one of the age groups btw. On the bright side, some additional parents with kids that aren't ECNL caliber will get to brag their kid plays ECNL.
