gfa chasing points at maps challenge...brick skipping Bethesda and barons will not win a game in Bethesda ....but you are all great....ECNL is where its at....

Anonymous said...

Let's see how many games MF will win at bathesda and teams like barons and brick and GFA and others are better teams. You said they are chasing points , they play what they want to play, MF is chasing money using a status.

What's wrong to play some week3nd toyrnaments. Have you thought about the simple fact-somebody just wants to play soccer. The amount of playing time compare to how much we pay is sifnificant to what PDA or Matchfit offers for much more $$$. Maybe you can just place the $$$ label on your forehead and sit still while others practice, play, and have fun. Where woyld you like to be honestly?

I must say after watching a few NJX games those girls smile whether they win or lose. Kudos to them. Some kids rather nit gaffe stress and ulcers at 13. Congrats on your win this weekend.

ECNL
Expensive
Concept
Nothing
Learned


delusional parents....a sucker born every minute.

They do learn in ECNL. Very good training. It's just sad that they play 18 and take 26 or more. If your not top 10 at 13 years old find another team. Parents are the problems.

Conversations through the generations at the ECNL haters house:

Child: Dad, can we get cable internet.
dad: Why dial up is just as good and its cheaper?

Child:Dad, can we get cable TV?
dad: Why, we get 5 perfectly good channels for free.

Child:Dad, Can I get a CD player?
dad: Why we have this cassette player and you can record music for free off the radio

Dad: Dad, can we get a TV?
grand dad: why all our favorite shows are on the radio, this picture box is a fad

Grand dad: Dad can we get a horseless carrage?
Great grand dad: Why our horse and carriage are faster and cheaper? Those things are just a fad.

Just because something works, doesnt mean it cant be improved upon. Just because something is the "next big thing" is more expensive doesnt mean its not going to work, its a status symbol, and the old way is better.

The model is the problem when they can have a max roster of 30 players. You don't need more then 18 because even if 3 get hurt you have 15 which is the ultimate roster number anyway. Training at some of the ECNL clubs may be good but you would be niave to believe it's good at all of them. If you believe all the best players flick to these teams & the training is great them how would you explain teams losing 7-0? If there are clubs or teams that don't draw the same number of players to their tryouts or the same level of player yet those smaller clubs can compete with the ECNL then wouldn't you say the training must be better to take less & make more out of it? Can't make a blank statement that they are all the best or worst for that matter just as there are teams from smaller clubs doing very well with less resources. If you wanted to really solve the issue you would have a real elite league where team would have to earn their way in & to stay would have to do well not based on club but individual teams then you can really say you play the best but that will never happen with all the money these clubs make off these 26 man rosters.

Anonymous said...

ECNL or any top league should be reach by results, you win a league then u progress into another. This way real top teams will be in top leagues. Instead is all about a status that you buy and then you sell forgetting about developments but focusing on making money.

"Conversations through the generations at the ECNL suckers house:"

Child:Dad, Can I get 3D TV,it's "Top" level because you have to pay more for it?

dad: yes no need to research it cost more so must be "Top" level, the English accent salesman told me so

Child:Dad, why is 3D tv we bought last year never used in 3D but in 2D; its equals to my friends tv and they paid less?.
dad: because i am a sucker

Child:Dad, (@18) why did we pay all that money for ecnl if i cannot get my scholarship and I did not make the college team because a top edp 1-5 player took my position? I was 12-30 on the ecnl team; You know ecnl means the "best of the best" in the "whole wide world",the English accent salesman/coach told us so

dad: (4 yrs from now) because i was a sucker; sorry i spent most of your college tuition on soccer and now you will have to take a loan and will owe approx $1ooK when you graduate

So non-ECNL teams like Copa, SJEB, and even Brick are free? They pay for the travel too?

Anonymous said...

I can't even compete. Using my post's logic, change some words and use that to make your point. Not an original thought in there. I'm sure like your opionion on ECNL, its probably not even your own. Probably over heard your american daddy coach bad mouth the ECNL and "hey, I agree...that is my new opinion" btw your flip phone is ringing. Trust me I have done my research, and again all you have to do is look at any top D1 program and see how many are from ECNL, see how many U20 WNT are from ECNL, maybe you should do some research, mate! I dont think anyone ever said it GIVES you a scholarship but it certainly opens more doors than MOST clubs.

Hi 1159, I replied to your original post.

I like the idea of ecnl or a "Top league; but as the other poster said "Top league should be reach by results, you win a league then u progress into another." claiming to be a top team base on an exclusive league and not supporting this argument; by not playing non league teams makes parents (I'm sorry for lack of a better word) look naive. Why not have crossover games? why not scrimmage non league teams? Only then if you win you can exclaim your a "Top" level team with "Top" level players.

The only reason ecnl does not do this is the fear of losing their "artificial" status if it's shown they are not actually "Top". I have not heard any other reason.

(like having a coke challenge, no such thing,, as they can only lose customers; there is a Pepsi challenge as the have more to gain)

Question to all:

if the ECNL team "did" play EDP top teams and ...

-for non ECNL team parent: ...beat most would that prove ECNL Team is a "Top" team?

-for ECNL parent: ..lost to most would that prove ECNL is a "not a Top" league?

see how many U20 WNT are from ECNL

ok i will go along ang play this (though ecnl is new and most probably played more odp but lets assume ecnl made then the player they are)

1 from nj 1.6% chance if on ecnl and "YES" 0% if not on ecnl

hopefully you don't bet with your family's house on those odds, it like betting:

-a horse w/a 1.6% chance to win
-double down w/ Aces in Blackjack
-00 in roulette actually a better bet 2.6% chance to win
-you driving a golf ball over 300 yards with the wind, down hill

but I would love to have you over at our weekly card game

So you think people are playing ECNL because they believe their kid will make the National team?

The point of 11:59 comment is not that everyone thinks they will make the national team, but that the best kids that do make the national team are from the ECNL. Big difference. And it is a fact for the U20 team, check it out.

223 not sure what you mean by your post; not ecnl but "unwillingly" get suckered into it, if you knew who she was there would be much better than 1.6% odds she would make an ecnl team....then once in ecnl another 1.6% she make the national team; she is one of the top 25 girls of edp, and one of many which will be taking your daughter's spot next yr (face it nj ecnl not so competitive this yr.. changes r coming).

My point parents just because you are in ecnl doesn't mean your daughters are "top" players, yes they are "very good players" but only 1-3 on each team would be considered "top" national team chance players. So the rest of you 4-30 parents stop pounding your chest, realize there are other top players out there not in ecnl and enjoy the rest of the ride as many of the current ecnl players will not be there at u18.

Before you get the idea your kid is the top player, if she is not playing up at least a year and dominating the game, know there is another kid that is.

Hbc can lock in second place with a win over commack on sunday

New Hyde has three games left and can disrupt commacks run for first

Goodluck stay warm

MF ecnl can break the .50 mark this weekend finish at .50 or 3 games under goodluck...PDA is probably finding ways to draw top players from EDP because what they have is not working...everyone has caught up and they are regressing as noted all along Mia at u11 was a stand out now at u14 she has topped out...good luck billy baller on poaching over the winter

Back to reality for NJX and nice job by Brick. How the hell did NJX beat SJEB 1-0 last weekend???? NJX is an average at best team and not a top 10 team at all based on EDP results this fall. Lots of parity in NJ rankings 1-15 as anybody can be beaten and really no true #1 team...

Lots of parity 1 thru 5 maybe, not 1-15. Number 6 is Copa, which couldn't beat 1-5 on their best day.

Nj edp has quality players but I doubt any would leave to play with current ecnl teams of lesser quality..less games..more money and too many players on a roster

Anonymous said...

there are a few EDP players that could make an ECNL team.

Better chance at the match fit team I would think.


Not many if nay would crack the PDA team. Defense seems to be the teams Achilles heel right now as they have given up too many goals.


Brick has no one that can help
NJX has none that can help
Copa has none that can help
SJEB had one that would have been terrific
Stallions have two that would help.


Before you go posting that this is a PDA parent.

Relax and slow your role. Its not.

Some good girls at this level but none that will be able to help The ECNL teams significantly enough that they have to change out players for these girls.

Yup, Freehold did what we all knew they would. Got blown out and proved once and for all that they're second tier.

Anonymous said...

Let's leave Freehold alone as honestly no one ever believed they would be the Barons. They are a 2nd tier team who on their beat day can hang with top teams just not beat them which is fine. They have been quiet lately so no need to attack them for no reason.

Anonymous said...

Please, they used to be on here constantly tooting there own horn about how they were a top team (usually after tying a top team). Time to pay the piper! Probably going to finish 7th out of 10 teams. Should have never came here blabbing.

Anonymous said...

They did but have not lately therefore bringing them up for no reason makes no sense. They aren't suppose to beat the Barons if they are a top team & Freehold is not so why would you bring up that they didn't get it done? There is nothing wrong with not being a top team as really NJ only has 3 that you can say for sure are & maybe a 4th is Stallions or MF improve. Barons still have a chance to win the flight so anyone that loses to them shouldn't be a surprise.

Top 3 teams in EDP Central were as expected which if anyone of them one it wouldn't have shocked. Premier Strikers beat Stallions & they win the flight. SJEB had 2 losses & 1 tie but might have enough to take 1st as they beat Premier. NJ State Champs won't finish in top 4 & PA State Champs finish in last place. North looks like Commacks to win with GFA taking 2nd & HBC taking 3rd. Copa disappoints in the flight. If Premier wins flight then no NJ team will finish 1st in the top flights.

Points lost are points lost You drop two for a tie and three when you lose. So saying you only lost one sounds good until you count your points at the end of the season.as long as the PS win and don't tie they will have the most points. They will have only dropped 6 points.

No I think the numbskull meant that there are 4 '00 kids on the region pool list. The other post was regarding the regional team competing in Boca which is a subset of the regional pool and supposedly the "a" roster from the pool. NJYS is a USYSA organization. The state team is a NJSA team though US club players can participate with what is essentially an "at large" player card. What do you mean USYSA ODP? USYSA governs ODP after a kid is chosen to participate in a national event. Do you mean the organization stinks (I would agree) or the kids stink (I would disagree at the region 1 pool level)?

The troll is having a conversation with herself. She is Copa, GFA and Brick at the same time. Sometimes shadows as freehold. No parent would bother with Copa or GFA attacks because it was squashed at the soccer field. The issue is the child who goes unsupervised harrasing teams because they are unhappy with their parents, their situation and the fact that all of the mentioned teams have ignored her played without her or shut her down when playing against them. The issue will escalate and she will become a threat to herself if the parents don't intervene. But I bet her parents are fueling the fire as well. What a shame.

" see you at tryouts" lol the " ECNL" teams arrogance is incredible. Instead of worry about your daughter development you are all about status. As I said previously there should be a state/regional/ national league with all teams and based on their performance they will achieve status and level where they play. Now you will have teams in the proper place. Match fit is not a top team, they bought into a top league .but again nobody will do anything otherwise there will be no money making and suckers like you that love the "status" the same way you like a fancy car.

Anonymous said...


Didn't say anything about ecnl ? Coming to your teams tryout

Anonymous said...

I assure you my daughter is on a ECNL team but not one in NJ and there are two main reasons that NJ ECNL teams are struggling IMHO.
1) there is a lot of movement that is well documented on this blog around this age group and believe it or not there is a some gelling that needs to take place.
2) In the case of another NJ team there was no movement(for the last couple of years they didnt even have tryouts)regarding fresh playeres. Just because their style of play with their atheletes won, they made no upgrades while everyone else did.
That being said all teams in this northeast region has top players, whatever your definition of top players is. Also don't diminish the competition just because the NJ teams are not winning every game. Dont you want a highly competitive league where anyone can beat anyone on any given day? Does a team need to go undefeated to prove to the bloggers and critics how good they are? IS this the only criteria for a successful league? Is this the only criteria for a "elite" team.
Everyone plays for different reasons. Everyone will has a different end game. Why judge?
So what if my motivation is different than yours what makes mine wrong?
Be positive for your daughter's progress and dont hate others. In the end, you will need to showcase your daughter to colleges if that is your end game. Doesnt matter who's TEAM is better, unless for the first time in history your whole team is going to the same college.

It will be foolish to think that a non nj ecnl parent wrote that. Ecnl will not take off in nj because unlike the rest of those that believe the hype playing well and entering in showcase tournaments will have nothing to do with buying into the hype and status. Nj is densely populated with a lot of soccer talent and unlike most of ecnl koolaid drinkers many are educated on the bs that filtered through the ecnl hype. As long as there are tournaments we will chase but pay close attention to details. Winning percentage and performance at top brackets is key. That what we do. We do not need to travel across the country to brag about a status. Can't wait for MF and PDa to step out of their bubble. But till then we play ecnl teams out of the nj realm because unlike the ponzi ecnl teams of nj they are not afraid to loose.

So what NJ non-ECNL teams are we talking about that are so upset that they can't play PDA or MF?

No one is upset. But it would be nice to see how they match up against our Second tier clubs. Not that we are better or worse but it would be nice to see how level the playing field is. I bet PDA and MF are competitive and could probably beat most or some. As far as the best player leaving it seems that GFA and brick are doing far better without. And from what I have heard on the blog she was never the best player on either team. So nice rey slick.

Low level tournament with GFA clearly the best team & Copa & Freehold play for 3rd? This really shows where these 2 teams are headed. Copa may be able to regroup at a level below but Freehold never did well in the 2nd or 3rd tier of flights so it will be interesting to see what happens to these teams in the Spring after very disappointing Fall seasons.

Gfa solid. No chance against them this weekend. Copa and freehold in trouble. Low level I guess so. But Bethesda is far. Good teams here. Next weekend will be better with maps. You just cannot discount a team that trains 4 nights per week. They really "earn" the wins.

clearly GFA the 3rd best team in NJ...Behind PDA&MF

What happened to Copa today? When you lose to Freehold 3-1 it might be over for you. Shame to see them fall so fast.

Freehold won 3-1 vs Copa! Well done third place!!

Was over for Copa when coach left and best player left for MF... Then next best attacking player quit for social reasons but came to team with former coach from STA and was upset that he left.

When you lose coach that made team successful and 2 best attacking players... The only way is down unfortunately. They will compete in some decent games with current roster but if they lose any more players they will be in big trouble.

Good job freehold??? Lol unbelievable

Its kind of funny how everyone is saying good job to Freehold when everyone said the finals of the Maps Tournament would be Copa and Freehold when Freehold got their butts kicked by GFA. I dont know why everyone hates GFA. They play good soccer and they proved themselves this weekend.They beat Freehold and went 4-0 this tournament. And you people have to notice that Freehold and other teams like Brick have been together for what like 3-5 years. But GFA are together for 1 year and look where they are. Give them some credit for once. I dont know how people can still say Copa is the best team by far when they cant even go to the finals in the 2nd Bracket. And they still complain it was the refs fault or bad luck. This has been going on for a month now! Come on, realize something simple. Please.

Copa has some very good players that are now not being coached correctly. They should move on. All those parents must be able to see that from last season to this is just an unbelievable drop.

Your Spring season and summer was not a fluke, you deserved every success you had. But now... It's actually hard to believe some of these results. Best player leaving or not... You have a full roster of very talented girls. Clearly the new coach is not doing your girls justice.

I heard he has changed players positions around, benched starters that started the whole Spring when you were successful...

If it doesn't change for you next spring... I'd be looking elsewhere.

Wow, Commack lost today. If GFA wins against TSF, GFA will win the EDP North.

TRIC in 2nd flight of NEWSS? They couldn't score a goal in 3rd flight of Bethseda so going to be a tough way to end the season.

5 05 clearly you have no knowledge of soccer and are just creating trouble. For what reason that's anybody s guess. Copa is a team that had a nice run up the lower flights, playing a very direct style, capitalizing on the players strengths that are no longer there. Like others that come from the lower levels, they often find it difficult to play or stay at those higher levels. without those goals from those players. this years results should be no surprise. No t about the coaching. coach seems to have them attempting to play soccer. Vut again 5:05 you wouldn t know that.
PDA recruiting a Copa defensive player.Sounds like more fiction

Anonymous said...

I watched Copa play (gfa parent). I have to say they tried to play soccer. They were passing nice and tried to keep the team work in place. However, it looked like they were just trying to learn that. Dont you think its pretty late at this point? Maybe not but they will suffer for a while while this attempt turnd into a consistant play. They need some leaders as well to pressure and outplay their opponents. At this point the play looks more described as played instinctively. But again, they tried to play nice soccer. They just could not compete at this speed and level.

TR & NJX looked very bad this weekend at Bethesda...I see both these programs on the decline especially going into the HS years as they will only draw MAPS level players!! NJX got blown out 3-0 and 6-1 this weekend. Not a good showing for a so called NJ Top 10 team....

Anonymous said...

TR's season overall wasn't bad. Bethesda is a high level tournament. Not a place for average town teams. Did NJX bring their defense or GK to the tourney? MFA brought it to the table finally.

6:43pm ... It's not fiction it's reality pda / mf have been looking at girls to build up there squads . Once edp season is done fleecing will begin . Copa fullback is talking to pda well parents are .

Anonymous said...

I would guess the Copa player and PDA is a mutual thing. It sounds like this player is going to ditch if she can. Also sounds like she has some reasons to as well. Don't be jealous. Be happy someone is doing something for their kid or the kid is doing something for herself. Isn't this what is all about?

Anonymous said...

parents talking to PDA.. is not the same as PDA reaching out ....
a lot of parents think their kids can play there on the top teams. The reality is few will. Seen the Copa play and like others say, didn't notice that standout player. But then again
PDA has what-3 teams in this age group. So sure it is possible ; just probably not the ecnl team

Anonymous said...

PDA team needs defensive help. It is obvious by their goal differential and total goals given up. I think the coach would be looking for help as current players not doing the Job in the ECNL league.

Not making the ECNL playoffs is a tremendous black eye on the program.

They will have to fix it and they will look for help to get it fixed.

Anonymous said...

6:43 - Copa have never played a direct style. Old coach was having them take goal-kicks short, and passing on the ground until they got high up the pitch and looked for through balls. New coach is trying to get them to pass all the way into the 18 as the fast forwards both left the team so through balls difficult now.

So your 'run up the lower flights playing a direct style' comment clearly shows that it's you that has no knowledge. Copa finished 2nd in EDP 1st Div North in Spring with no defeats, won a tough PDA flight and made Semi's in a top flight at Delco before competing at 2 National Finals.

Do some research or actually watch them play more than once before you speak up.

You NJ teams are funny! TR didn't have a bad season? I guess your expectations are pretty low then as they had a losing record in a 2nd division of EDP & finished behind teams like NJ Wildcats & whoever Bridgewater is & just went to a real tournament mind you in the 3rd flight & didn't score a goal. I have seen Copa play last season & they were okay playing mostly to their speed up top but nothing impressive as most NJ are. Don't know GFA yet so we'll see if NJ can come up with another good top level team or just be average like the rest. How many NJ teams in top flight of Bethseda & how did they do?

11:54 - I wouldn't have the best centre-back sat on the bench... thats for sure.

New coach needs to recognize quickly that is a HUGE issue. Natural leader on defense sits most games now and when she does play she plays outside-back. Awful coaching decision.

Copa took a top 3 team and in 4short months turned them into maybe a top 20 team,great job DOC.....

Old copa coach must have been a bloody genius, as current copa team with 4 coaches can't achieve same results.
Thats the only difference from last season.

Yup definitely the coaching.

Or maybe COPA was never that good since they were in lower flights...

What's the story on SJEB? They didn't do very well at Bethesda. Just one bad weekend or something more? Don't know much about them.

6:11 = shameful post from the ex-coach himself. Give it a rest a move on.

Old Copa coach speeks the truth. It hurts when its blunt. The leadership in Copa land is horrendous. And although the Copa folks were warned with a leaky email, they stayed. Now its shame on you Copa parents.

COPA COPA COPA is like politics.
On one side of the aisle those that support the old coach and say it doesn t matter that they lost 2 top goal scoresrs and the others, say move on that shouldn t matter.

Hey brick guy you can't even beat freehold How can talk about being a top team....Never a top team tHe end is near

Anonymous said...

NJ soccer is mess. You guys kill successful programs like PDA or the very few teams you have that go out & represent in top tournaments against real competition then brag about making a final in a low level tournament only to NOT even make the finals. You make your State look bad & that is why NJ will never have a dominate team with all the jealousy & in fighting. This team will kill this team, this team can't even beat this team talk makes you look ignorant but it is amusing to us soccer educated people so keep putting down clubs or teams that actually do something from your State while the rest of Region 1 continues to get stronger.

Anonymous said...

Thanks your input hillbilly from region 1....the comments are from two or three jerks the same ones over and over again...so before you jump in and fall for the trolls tip a cow or something or better yet churn butter...PDA..MF do okay...but for now many clubs will not support programs that does not support the average household with players that can play at ecnl's level...they exclude families that can't afford the overpriced tag for less training an . Large rosters.that's why PDA and MF at thus bracket can't compete they merely have players that pay to play

Anonymous said...

This is a region1 forum not a NJ specific forum, but this age group is dominated by NJ. FYI NY, Philly, Baltimore, Boston, Wash, DC and Richmond are all included in Region 1 so exactly what prompts the "hillbilly" comment? By the way your writing suggests that your own education may be wanting.

Don t worry about NJ soccer, just look to see some of the top high school teams n the country.
Or check the box score of top 5 ranked U. Of Virginia first round win in college cup tournament, to see 3 NJ kids with points.

Anonymous said...

Copa parents. Why you blame everything on your coach? Don't yoy realize that many team has re-formed after the high school factor kicked in? The fact that you lost couple players is something that has happened to all teams. However, other teams got new ones. Did you or did you get new key players? Doesn't look like. It must difficult for yiur coach to deal with this and crazy parents' assumptions. Your success from last season was not as amazing as you think. You have not beaten sjeb, gfa, brick, pda, etc. You just had more luck playing against others in NOT top level tournaments. Since you did not beat anyone at the top, why you think you were such a strong team. If you really want to become a strong team, support your coach and give him time to do the transition. Stop demoralizing your girls, your yeam with an imaginary past success you thought you had. Time to wake up.

Troll alert! You can make the argument for Brick to be #1 based on beating SJEB & Stallions this season but they have not played PDA in over 2 years. You can also make the argument that SJEB are #1 as well. Hard to know who is really #1 in NJ when all the teams that claim to be #1 don't play each other. If you go by Got Soccer rankings then SJEB has done more in a calendar year to be thought of as #1 but if you go by this season Brick has wins over SJEB, GFA & Stallions but didn't play PDA where the other 3 teams don't have wins over Brick. Either way the Fall season combined with the Spring season will determine who is #1 in NJ but NJ needs to start winning tournaments outside if their State to be a Regional threat.

Anonymous said...

it has been quite a while since I last visited this site. But it never disappoints for providing high comedy. Take a look at your daughters team - How many do you think will play in college --- not many. And that is a fact.

NJ teams aren't any good - really................

I would take it the other direction. There are a lot of places for players to play in NJ for this age group and the talent is spread around, maybe most don't want the financial commitment to play for ECNL teams. But in this age group there are a lot of good players and a lot of good teams. Actually like that fact, it makes most league (NPL/EDP/etc.) worth while.
NJ teams normally fair very well in tourneys outside of NJ - Some play at different levels and some get seeded at different levels but most do represent well and compete in every game. Remember for the most part teams aren't always placed in the correct brackets - that is why Got soccer points tend to screw up some tournaments And as the players get older you will see that the top 4 or 5 flights of showcase tournaments all have quality teams.

Just enjoy the f'kn games and get over yourself. You are not playing your daughter is and I'm sure she gives 100% every time she steps on the pitch for games or training. So show her you care and stop being an a s s.

Anonymous said...

Here is another troll looking to start an attack on another team. If you take the EDP North & EDP Central teams that finished in the top 3 you would clearly list the top 3 from the Central before any of the top 3 from the North & to suggest otherwise is just plain ridiculous. SJEB, Premier & Brick would always be ahead of Commack, GFA & HBC. SJEB did lose a game to GFA this season but Brick has wins over GFA & New Hyde Park which are 2 of the top 4 in the North according to the standings & a win over SJEB as well with only a loss to Premier. If you are going to attack a team don't make it personal just stick to the facts & to suggest if you combined the 2 divisions that a team would be 7th make sense. As far as #1 in NJ I think someone already said you can go in a couple of directions with SJEB & Brick being the favorites & PDA being another but you cannot compare them because there are no common opponents. Seems to be a lot of jealousy in that State which is why you as a State get attacked on here.

Anonymous said...

All of the teams headed to U15 will take the fall off due to high school soccer season with most playing in a few tournaments in the late fall. Only exception will be PDA and MF ECNL teams as they will not allow the girls on those teams to play high school soccer (just like to boys academy teams). It s a shame those girls will miss out on a great expierence.

Not true about HS at least I know MF allows them to play. Their season starts when HS season is over.

Hay brick guy don't count your ducks to soon. There is a tourny coming up soon. So before you open your mouth wide to pretend you are from outside of NJ ...slowly anticipate the foot I see it being surgically removed from way down deep. Be modest because when you are not you will put your players in tought predicament. Let's see if you make the finals.
