These comments like "these parents have really drank the Koolaid at TBU" and "Hopefully, people will start realizing that they are not what they would have you believe they are." are really arrogant. What makes you think you know so much about youth and college soccer - and TBU parents don't?

These parents on the sidelines are successful small business owners, doctors, lawyers, sports therapists, teachers, hosptial administrators, etc. - many that played sports in college (including soccer). The Dad I watch most games with is an orthopedic surgeon who played soccer in Europe - he knows a little bit about the game. These TBU parents are not dillusional or clueless about the youth soccer options in the Tampa Bay region. If anything they are rational realists and they have looked at all the options - including the one you chose - and decided that TBU represents the better option.

Very arrogant of you to repeatedly point out that they are getting fooled somehow by TBU!

So what is your excuse? If you have a third of the players to manage and develop as a club at WFF. Why do you still suck?

TBU on it's worst day will still beat all of your GDA teams.

Very arrogant of you not to recognize any of the blue collar parents on your sidelines. You probably think theyíre there for the sole purpose of picking up your trash when you leave. Itís this exact elitist attitude of TBU that fuels their reputation across the state as the most pompous club in Florida.

Well with all you "smart people" why can't you figure out that there is something really broken at TBU? sheesh. Typical TBU response and exactly portrays the issues over there

Fixed it for you.....

These parents on the sidelines are successful small business owners, landscapers, doctors, heating and cooling technicians, lawyers, carpenters, sports therapists, cable TV installers, teachers, auto mechanics, hospital administrators, etc. - many that played sports in college (including soccer).

It doesnít matter how many teams deep are below the ECNL team. 98% of college recruiting happens at the ECNL (and DA) level so this argument about what percentage of TBU kids as a whole is meaningless. Colleges are not actively recruiting at CDL, FSPL etc levels. They just donít have the time and resources.

Right now at the ECNL level, 90% of 00s, 80% of 01s and 60% of 02s are committed. Thatís the percentage that you need to focus on.

Donít act like you did it. Iím sure you had one of the blue collars that you purposely omitted the first time take care of it so you can feel better about yourself. Congrats, now back to your day drinking and pate.

Notice how every single time the TBU parents completely ignore the topic which is the poor record of their ECNL Programs?
Itís really hilarious! 😆

Still too elitist, which figures. Try DMV receptionists, Garbage collectors, public restroom janitors, prostitutes, tbu handjob specialists, fluffers, x rated arcade moppers, retirement home bed pan cleaner and sponge bathers, etc...
