I saw this and I thought this Phoenix was in Italy or somewhere over there. I thought this stuff only happened in England. Hello, $1 beer night. Butt of course beer will be blamed again just like Mr Gun and Mr Money. I will say I hate guns and only want the right people to have them for the record. Which league is this anyways? I'm so confused with this pro sport. Please don't tell me this is the same league over at The Great Park? Parent in Vegas, do it now. End this toxic negativity now!!!!. We need positive news. Someone please start a positive thread on the positive stories in youth soccer. I will stay positive 100%, I promise. I did NOT start this thread!!!!

Quotes

“Regardless once sub out you can’t go back in the game.”
“This player came in the game with 12 minutes remaining in a showcase.”

“After the pregame warm up you sit for 68 minutes!”
“How is that fair at a showcase?”

“Some kids played 20 minutes in 3 games”
“North Carolina was 30 degrees and CO 29 degrees”

“that's a long way to travel to not play as it is a showcase.”
“That is so wrong!”

“Why would parents subject their DD to that mental anguish?”

“players need to get the time in to showcase.”

The answer from some coaches

“All players need to learn what it’s like to come off the bench in college or sit and watch. I know your in 7th grade but you will be sitting, so get used to it.”

“Coaches need to see you sit still and smile and don’t you dare pout about it, everyone is watching, especially The World”

“Coaches need to see how you take it when I take you out 5 minutes before the half is over and you know your done for the day and have to wait two more days to watch the next one on the bench because its your turn to sit out a whole game. I will even use that to make you work harder at practice as a threat."

From others:

“don’t complain about it. Coaches don’t want to hear your complaints especially the scouts. Wait until you get to college”

Or my favorite of all

“I was there and don’t disagree with your concern, just know that there is often more than meets the eye.”

Can you find out how much more because my eyes are burning with story after story. Look at all the rosters and how who played and who didn't. You don't't even have to be there to know..... Lots of girls sitting.
Now girls who don't play a lot are getting arthritis early in the knees for sitting on long, long plane rides and just as long, long car rides all over the Southwest. Very hard on the knees on anyone :)

"The MEN brought a woman who had been caught in adultery; and making her stand before all of them, The men said to the philosopher, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law (at the time) commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?"

Did anyone here ever ask yourself how come the man who was her didn't have to stand before them too? How come it's just the girl? Assholes made her stand in front of the philosopher, naked I'm sure too. The wise teacher wrote on the ground and those dudes walked away one at time. Gee I wonder why? Stop stoning each other and let's get this fixed. This year is on and let's play it out. We have some time to work this all out so the girls are treated right, not like in the old days. I'm sorry as a man for what fellowman was up to back then and it seems some have never changed. I think the philosopher was very compassionate and kind to this woman and so should we :)

Sorry guys. Its not what you think. I was on FB with 1200 friends the last 4 years and Politics and Religion seem to own everyone. I said nothing on there, ever!!! I have 175 friends by deleting anyone who took on a friend from HS 35 years ago, co-worker or family member. I can't tell you how many friends hate each other all because of politics and religion and soccer now. My point is obvious. Sorry if I offended anyone and now everyone hates me. Please, close this Thread now!!!!!

Please, close this Thread now!!!!!
The thread itself was fine (as were the others before you took them sideways) as long as things stay on topic. Your issue, imo, is that you ramble about anything and everything and post whatever thread you are currently in at the time. Start a new thread in the Off Topic section and stop hijacking all the threads that people actually read to get and share info. Your posts tend to take threads way off topic. If you don't have anything to add to a threads topic, don't post. Pretty simple.

You're 100% and I am sorry and for taking over. I see my avatar and it's embarrassing. I will delete all my threads I started. I can't control what others do. I will give the forum back to all of you. Sorry for taking it too far and opening by big mouth. I had no idea I get this reaction. I'm super sorry. Carry on

First off, I didn't know anyone was really reading my rants. This is me in a nut shell for better or worse.
I was told since birth I had to go to college. Mom and her man both went to USC starting in 1939. High School sweethearts. He passed away before I was born. My brother went to UCLA. I was adopted as a special needs baby but no one knew yet. You see, I couldn't hear when I was born. My mom didn't pick it up until I was two. Operations (thank God she had a few $$$) for over two years. Because I had to learn to speak at three, it caused a severe stuttering problem as they called it back then. Oral reports were a bitch back then let me tell you. As I got older, I skipped that part and got an F instead because back then you had to overcome the #1 fear over death for some reason. Not easy to handle when you know the answer but when try and tell everyone you can't talk, it sucks. So yes, my sports buddies would make laughs and some giggles. No harm, no foul but inside I was pissed. I couldn't really talk with much sense until I got married. Sports is where I excelled. Let me tell you, the guys who laughed at me got 100% of all my effort on the playground and I usually won :) Lot's of cheering for me as little guy in sports but 100% not in the classroom. All because I was "dumb" according to some, and they put me in some tough places to try and learn 2nd -4th grade. I couldn't speak so I would have to make my dream on the fields and courts. So My mom and my wife are the two biggest hero's in my life. To the guys who left I'm sorry. Sorry again for speaking out of line. I will now bow out once and for all. 100% will never post again. Can't say I won't look but it's best I move on.
