The guest player keeps playing 80 min per game. This past weekend he played 80 and 71 minutes in consecutive games. Must be right at the borderline dev-wise. Google the name and he has a very successful siblings so club must believe in him. (and mommy is on the board at nysc where reyna was a founding director 10 yrs ago.)

That said, I've already seen abuse of this rule being used as a way to get players, who clearly have no physical development delay, some time on the field. A simple solution to curb such abuse is to have players provide a medical doctor's note at the beginning of the season, verifying that they are physical late developers. Most kids with cases severe enough to warrant playing down will have been checked out by a doctor at some point when younger to make sure they were growing properly.

It's not about height, there are plenty of small kids who are on an early or normal physical development curve and have plenty of muscle mass by 15/16 to play with their birth year. The late developers won't have this same strength and will naturally have difficulty competing. Month of birth should have no bearing on who is able to play down, either. A two year delayed developer born in May is obviously going to be physically behind a one year delayed December born kid.

This rule is a good idea, but definitely needs some clear restrictions put into place so that it's used only as USSF intended.

Should he be tossed aside just because he won't his growth spurt until 16? And don't pull the "Messi is tiny" card. We're not talking about unicorns, just more typical DA players.

I believe it is limited to two players per team and the date has to be late. Won't stop clubs from abusing it unfortunately.
