What is the over/under on how many more hate Stars (or Scorps) threads, veiled or otherwise, will be started and/or revived over the next month?

Sure is boring around here without BTDT and Cyberman.

It is likely that there are some weeds in your garden that need pulling.

On the rising u18's team there are no remaining players from u10's. There a just 1 or 2 or maybe 3 from u11's. I think the numbers are better on the u17's.

Stars are responsible for global warming, and then they have the audacity to deny that global warming exists.

Hey Stars dude, did you hear about the glacier the size of Texas that just broke off from Antartica???

It is also true that 8 players were cut after the team made it all the way to the Nationals finals ! True story! I know 2 of the girls ! They still talk about this!

Some kids just get tired of it and leave. It's not always a matter of being cut. There is life beyond Stars.

U10 - Is this a joke? My kid plays D1 in college and didn't play at her club for U10 yet she played there for the rest of her career. Apparently that wouldn't be good enough.

Doesn't the fact that there is a term "destination club" and everyone involved with club soccer for more than a year or so has a common understanding of what that term means is an indication that the OP isn't providing any sort of revelation? It certainly isn't unique to Stars.

A portion of the destination club players come from smaller, more obscure clubs. Does this idea offend people? Does it not make sense to them? What's the issue? From my standpoint it reveals a dimension of market efficiency. In any of the so-called scams being perpetrated by clubs, this ain't one of them.

Just look at it this way, when you see a truly elite player (let's say All-State HS, D1 scholarship) who stays with one of those smaller/lesser known clubs, you're looking at the exception rather than the rule. It has nothing to do with the bigs or the small can or can't develop their own.

It is simply a practical reality that the destination clubs, for whatever reason, have the ability to attract players to their top teams that are more evenly talented than the smaller clubs. That's a huge advantage in players development from one level to the next on the way to elite.

You are only going to go so far on limited resources, commitment, investment (let's call it on your own). Players playing with better players around them have a better opportunity to progress and develop than those who don't.

If you're the best player on your U11 team (give or take) and your club draws a fraction of the number of players at their tryouts than the so-called destination clubs, in pure soccer terms (putting aside, cost, travel, other considerations), it would be foolish not to consider the move that so many obviously do.

Not according to Stars coaches. It is the end all be all in their 4 little corners of the the world.
