    Re: Need a ruling: Okay or not?

    If the structure of your league is anything like the one I just got done coaching in, I can see the other coach's point of view. As the coach of my daughter's team I had randomly selected girls and I had them for one practice a week as just our team. They have a different team then each spring and then again in the fall. I wouldn't dream of taking this particular team to the Iowa Games because we would get our brains beat in but I would think nothing of another coach asking a couple girls off the team to play with their team.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Need a ruling: Okay or not?

    BTW I'm entering my 11th year of coaching HS football and have seriously got along with every guy I've coached against and have developed some very good close friendships with several of them. Was in a 5 team league for soccer and there are 2 other coaches I'd like to knock the **** out

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    It is legal. But not right. In fact, people like that coach are ruining youth sports. **** him

    Well if that doesn't work for you then maybe this will. When you call off the dogs you're hurting the technical development of the players. The focus on winning/losing rather than an increase in technical skills is a major reason why the US has and still is struggling so mightily to break through in world soccer. If a beatdown is a by-product of technical development then by all means continue the beatdown. Basically, you are the reason why we're going to suck in the World Cup this year. Thanks alot. Stop hating America. (except the winning/losing vs. technical diatribe because that is true)


    Rhoads out!

    Re: Need a ruling: Okay or not?

    Thanks for the input Fanatics! I appreciate the feedback.

    At the end of the day, my team is a tight knit group. We will move on and fill those two spots. I just wish he would have either talked with me or waited until the season was over to swoop in.

    Yeah U8 for me as well, though that was just a summer team. Still had rec until it became all traveling in U12.

    Re: Need a ruling: Okay or not?

    We never had this situation growing up, no rec teams went to the Iowa Games we just had all the best players that wanted to play form a team. The Iowa Games isn't all that competitive though compared to back then, you don't even need player cards or anything like that compared to most tourneys. I look at it as a rec tournament, at least that's what it became when I was in high school 02-06. Stop playing in it and went to better competitive tournaments.
