What have they ever won

Latest word many girls turning down 03 offers now, only interested in second team because of High School restriction. Academy looking to comprimise but stuck now on hard line tactics.

Why aren't the 02s turning down spots but 03s are?

I know of 4 on the list that are certainly declining. Looks like the GDA is padding stats

Sounds like some of those returning 01/02s will move up to 00/99 team to fill out that roster. That will make the 01/02 roster more manageable than 25.

Default Curious...

Why did the academy interns post the clubs players came from on the 01/02 team but not the 04/05 team? Were they trying to show how many returning academy players there were, to demonstrate that girls should grab these spots at a young age? Trying to one up or embarrass FCP ECNL? There had to be motivation for that.

sounds like someone's DD is an alternate for 03 GDA and is stirring the pot. no one is declining but tryouts are only 363 days away.

Calls were made with offers before the lists were posted. This is done in order to confirm acceptances before posting. If one declines over the phone, they can move onto the next one on the list so that player doesn't realize they are at the bottom & will see little playing time.

Thats what I was told as well. Whats the point? Sad to see my beloved Timbers put themselves in such a negative position. I for one am seriously thinking of giving up my season tickets.

Interesting point. A returning player that was a bench sub on our oYSA team made Thorns again so there must be something to that. Also a carpool need for a starter though.
