re: people actually think not qualifying is gonna be that negative towards our future chances? - thesoccerfanjax
[quote]If you believe more academies for rich white kids is going to solve the problem[/quote] The problem here is that you don't understand the point or purpose of an academy (at least as discussed in this thread). Academies are for everyone and most are not expensive at all. The goal is that ...

re: Regarding Pay To Play - thesoccerfanjax
I see the Armada academies (all ages, all levels) practice sometimes and I have no idea what they do or don't pay to be on the squad. But I can say I feel pretty good about how the players are playing, even the really young ones. When I was growing up, kids those ages displaying that level of skil...

I know but this isn't really directed at anyone on this particular board. Sorry if it seemed otherwise. I also kinda forgot how the USMNT was historically described as "great athletes, lots of heart, not very good at soccer". Now it's more like "poor athletes, no heart, not very good at socce...

It's amazing how many people still don't get it...even "real" soccer fans. - thesoccerfanjax
The small sliver of success that the USMNT has had (if you could call it success), has been due to the fact that we have out-athleted and out-hustled the opposing side. This used to be a talking point by commentators but it seems that died with the 2010 WC squad or somewhere around there. Do p...

re: The 2018 F-Series Super Duty Limited is Ford's first $100,000 pickup - thesoccerfanjax
The people buying these types of trucks are why it's so hard to find a real truck these days that you aren't afraid to beat up on a little. I just always buy the base model Silverado work truck, and mod it as I want. Usually just level it and put some decent tires on it, and tint the windows a b...
