re: Concacaf and Conmebol should merge - Tiger Phil on 7/2/17 at 1:10 pm
I think CONMEBOL would be all for it, but the smaller nations in CONCACAF would vote it down. In 2026, there will be 6 spots for the 10 CONMEBOL and 6 spots for the 41 CONCACAF, so 12 total. If they were pooled, I think CONMEBOL would wind up getting more than their share. Right now, in t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: This is what people should be complaining about. - Tiger Phil on 6/28/17 at 1:54 pm
For those who are unaware, Title IX mandates that every school must offer the same number of men's and women's athletic scholarships as the proportion of male and female students at the university. Since most schools are close to 50% each, then the number of total scholarships is equal. Football...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Later in the same article: "LSU coach Paul Mainieri dug deep to find a source for his positivity. In 1989, Skip Bertman's Tigers played a regional at top-ranked Texas A&M needing to beat the Aggies, who were 58-5, twice in the same day to reach the CWS. LSU did it."

[link=(http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/media_kit/keystatistics/)]US Youth Soccer Stats[/link] This says that there were roughly 3,000,000 registered youth soccer players in the USA in 2014. Let's say that for every 20, there is a club team. That's 150,000 teams. Let's say on average a youth socce...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: The pay-for-play debate - Tiger Phil on 5/8/17 at 3:15 pm
Are you suggesting that there is enough money to pay youth soccer coaches in the USA. The revenue is there, but it is just all going into the USSF's pockets instead of into the local club and youth soccer coaches' pockets?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]The entire FC Dallas system is huge, they have so many teams its absurd. But the actual top level academy players playing on the A team are not paying to play.
