Are you really that dumb? Do you really believe everything you hear?

Since when have they even gotten close to producing a pro player? What is their incentive for producing one? None. They can't sell the player. Top players aren't even in this country

US Soccer says try out fees prohibited. Thorns are charging a very large fee.

US Soccer says minimum required 4 trainings per week. Thorns say only 3.

US Soccer says no high school activities. Thorns say maybe.

Assumuption is that they might rally once they get a chance to review the rules and have some time.
There are no "rules".

Exactly. The sole purpose for the Thornz Academy is that Timbers want to control everything by running the ECNL clubs out of town. Hasn't worked yet, and you could easily argue that the ECNL clubs have become stronger because of it.

The GDA has more to do with US Soccer wanting to run ECNL out of town then the Timbers.

It just presents a nice opportunity for the Timbers/Thorns. You are nuts if you think the two Oregon clubs have gotten stronger because of it.

I have a feeling once they get kids into the program they will ban all high school sports.

No difference between a Timbers lemming and an idiot.
