Top boys have it much better. There is nothing like the funded mls da teams on the girls side. The girls got an overpriced insulting imitation of what is available to boys. Girls would have been much better off if an equivalent da system for them had been launched at the same time it was for the boys. That failure opened the door for the ecnl cash cow to rise up and then the current garbage situation. Almost ready to bail on the entire enterprise and go back to rotating seasonal school sports as flawed as they are and be done with it.

USSF made a few terrible decisions. First like you said not doing GDA at the same time as BDA was a huge error. Then, one they did decide they had to do something (the need is there) they decided to try and reproduce ECNL in size and cost. They reached too big and underestimated the strength ECNL and the draw of HS soccer. Now people are disappointed in the experience and reconsidering all of it

The only way the leagues will listen is when the clubs walk en masse. The only way the clubs will listen is when the parents walk en masse. But parents won't, or ar least not enough numbers to make it hurt. And there's always someone waiting to fill a spot as soon as it opens up. Their kids wants to play and the higher leagues hold most of the cards for recruiting exposure. So, everyone deals with it and sucks it up.

I think it's time to stand up to the monopolys. It sucks to watch watered down soccer while 3 or 4 kids carry a team. Parents just blindly write out the checks though

If you want less leagues I believe you mean "I think it's time to stand up for the monopolies..."

Until you reverse that trend it will continue.
