@12:49....Yes of course (wink,wink)
Crush will be getting "DA spotlight player" status where girls will only have to attend a single DA practice a week in Monmouth and 3 in Bergen to be on the DA team. I'm not sure how many games are guaranteed and how many games are max for spotlight players.
Thats abusing the DA and all it stands for. Cedar crush a scam.
Scam is PDA and Match fix blocking all ECNL applications in the last 5 years in NJ. ID2 Indiana acceptances are out!
10:26 lots of exceptions even in the boys rules. Check them out - Developmental Players have been allowed for some time. Also read some interviews of the changes that are potentially coming up. Why do you hate soccer?
So they r going to have a DA tm that has different players not practicing with eachother all week? Makes no sense. Also, who are the coaches going to be in fall at Bergen? Better get some new blood because current girls program coaches aren't the greatest.
blah blah blah blahhhhhhhhhh, 10:42.
1042 has a point. This won't we allowed and makes no sense. just go to WC or PDA, unless not good enough.
10:42 is spot on mr blah blah. The reason one should go to DA is first because your kid is uber talented. 2 because the only way they wil get better is by playing consistently with better players. 3 because training is top notch. I dont think crush has any players so talented they cant find a better spot than where they are. I also dont think the training is any good with the coaches they have there now.
Commenting on fake news is what is funny about 10:42's post. Mr blahblah was just calling that out, I believe
Crush coach was relieved of his duties. That's putting it nicely.
Is the Crush coach, who is mentioned here aka the screamer, the same guy who runs A-game soccer clinics?
Yup A-Game guy
"You get trained by Danny A-GAME don't you?"A common question due to skill level that is shown by all A-GAME players.A direct quote written by the aforementioned coach, from his own facebook work page. Take from it what you will....Can't believe it took Crush this long to get rid of him.
NYCFC Takes World Class FC's DA. Don't think that there will be anymore ECNL/DA clubs in the Bergen area now. USSF won't want an MLS club to fail in their first year. They want more MLS clubs to come into the GDA. WC will keep ECNL
Great. kaz running DA with awesome track record of getting kids into top schools. Leaving a poorly run ecnl product to die a slow death. WC should be called Lower Class because thats what they give you. Second rate programs.
What are the odds on ECNL having a product by the end of the 2017-2018 season?Did MFA shoot itself in the foot by declining the DA? or even WC.
If you dont like A-game dont take the training. Its very binary, noone is forcing anyone. Choose someone else, there are lots of alternatives out there.
Brilliant move by crush. They are cutting the team expenses in half next year to keep players from moving with A-BOY. Now they just need to hire a good replacement coach. Can't use gone ones they have on staff. This is all business.
better probability DA flops vs ECNL fades. You are underestimating the draw of highschool sports for girls.
Its time with a good coach that matters not money. Dont be foolish.
seems like there are some haters about the crush coach but no specifics. Did he not do a good job? Ive heard he is a good coach for footskills and creativity. Is this not true? He is sure to turn up coaching at another club soon. Its a small world. He may end up at your club.
Hes a very good teacher of technical skills. He has clear favorites and it seems here one of these parents were not one of A boy's favorites. Sadly he was the only good coach at crush. The rest are all ordinary. Not a Coach there Id want training my kid. But im picky.
So true, they are all the same. Especially in the north jersey circle.
The top 30-40 kids (in each year) will probably leave HS and ECNL to go to DA. Thats enough to put a serious dent in quality of the product. I personally know of kids that would skip HS as to avoid injury and lame coaches. Its probably super hard when you're a part of a great school. But there are only a handful of these schools in NJ.
A-Boy is not very well liked and made some poor business decisions. Other clubs in the area I'm sure will find out how he conducted himself.
Seeing that quote on his social media is enough for me to know what type of person he is. Arrogant and vain spring to mind. Not 2 characters i want my child surrounded by. I'll skip thankyou.
These are the guys you need to run from. I'm sure his current parents are believers and they will follow him. They will all look back and wish they didn't. Nice news for WC, I hope they do well, we need a solid alternative to PDA.
I saw the news was official the other day...WC DA going thru NYCFC
Whats everyone's opinion on Matchfit. Is the girls ecnl being run through Denville or Mercer? I noticed the younger ones pre ecnl aren't too competitive....not sure about U14 and up
Hold tight....you will hear a lot of opinions on Matchfit.
Please stay tuned for scenes from next week episode of A-boy and The Crush
All you need to know about match fit is in the college scoreboard. Other than PDA they greatly outperform other clubs. I would say stallions is third ahead of sad world class.
Matchfit is a mess
I for one am on pins and needles waiting for the next episode of A-boy and The Crush. Will his girls follow him? Where will he land? I know where they have been practicing....is he going to that club too?
Where have they been practicing? I can work that into the script for next weeks episode of A-boy and The Crush.
Piotr said what? What did Piotr say? Had to be sizzling since she asked the site administrator to take it down. Is that a Crush or AGame parent?
One of the parents from A-Boys old Crush team. Signed Anon
Heard new Crush coach is Montclair State Girls varsity coach - sounds like a step up
AVERAGE-Game is all about the money. His girls are overrated and don't produce. Never won before the fall. Parents follow blindly. Pretty unethical of him to be bring girls to MF practices while employed at another club. That's always good for your reputation.
Wow, wonder if he is going to get hired by matchfit. I did hear they were practicing with the 03 ecnl team so they must be pretty good. Why would anyone want to be on a 24 player roster? The kids need to actually get in a game and play and if your player is not a starter, you can forget that happening. Maybe the crush girls would stay where they are now since Cedar Stars is taking over crush. If they are inclined to want a DA , that would be the the way to go. Matchfit has a poor reputation.
A-Boys girls have been with him for years. Don't think they have been coached by anyone else. There are better and more complete 03 players on that team and on the other Crush 03 team. MF 03 ECNL pretty weak.
Piotr piotr pumpkin iotr. What do thy say?
Why all the hate against the girls and the coach? I have seen them play. They are very talented, and he is an excellent coach. Isn't it good for nj soccer to have many good players and coaches? I would like to know Where the coach will go and hope we find out prior to tryouts
I agree. Matchfit 03 ecnl is weak but maybe agame guy is looking to get his girls on that team. He does need a home too,apparently. Maybe he is trying to work a deal. Not cool for the current ecnl girls. Hoping they are reading the writing on the wall and looking elsewhere. Matchfit is not known to do business with the best ethics.
Ecnl is about putting the best team on the field. If the kids are the best and deserve to be on the field they will be on the field. PDA and MAtch Fit Ecnl teams are heads and shoulders above the rest. Watch amd learn this spring.
Matchfit teams are not even close, most teams are very average and would be better off in npl.
This is a perfect place for A BOY. More chaos and will be gone in two years. Also heard he will try and stay on his own, may want to think about a name change. Not sure I would want that name on our jersey. This could be another Bergen's best episode...
The match fit 03 encl. team is all about kick and run soccer. This is disappointing at this level as It is like watching 11 individuals on the field. They do not work together as unit, as a team to move the ball. There were high hopes with the NT coach but clearly all is not good .
Will be interesting to see the former '03 Crush coach standing alone in the distance wathching the NPL games
2/28 @5:35 - no hate against the coach, he's a passionate guy. More good coaches the better, agreed. he is a good technical trainer but awful game coach and confidence builder. couldn't win a big game and before Crush only won 1 game- believes tearing kids down, threatening parents is productive. Top 2 players were Crush players not A-Game trained. Please do find out where he goes and push your daughter in that direction, just hope that his A-game girls aren't on the team
Isn't the 03 Matchfit team in 9th place in ECNL? How can you talk about them in the same sentence as PDA?
Damn. This poor guy is getting shredded
Threatening parents about what? That is something I have not heard before in youth soccer. I've seen many coaches tear down girls on a regular basis. That seems to be a common coaching tactic unfortunately although I personally am not fond of such methods. And many coaches play favorites.
Who is winning Manhattan tourney this weekend
SUSA v BRYC Final
The pied piper is moving along to Match fit with his A Team in tow....
3:35pm. Want to clarify a little?
Doesn't the existing team have to release the players in order to go to another club?
It looks like SDFC is falling apart. Girls are leaving to go to other teams. Best of luck to all the ones leaving and good for them. Team is like one step away from Daddy ball. The parents complain and the coach is a Pansy that doesn't know how to deal with it. I know that this is a money making industry but this club tops all. If you grease the right palms you can get your daughter on the team, not show up for any of the practices, or when you feel like it, and then get all the playing time on the field. What a joke. If a child is talented then there should be no need to pay above and beyond club fees to help build and support their new super arena that they are trying to build...
Is this the team Average Game is bringing to Match Fit? 7th place? The team before he merged with the other Crush teams?Spring 2016 EDPTeam MP W D L 1: SDFC RAGE (NJ) 8 7 0 1 2: CLARKSTOWN 2003 W 8 5 2 1 3: ARSENAL MAXIMUS R 8 5 1 2 4: SUSA FC 8 5 0 3 5: TSF ACADEMY 02/03G 8 4 2 2 6: ALLEYCATS GIRLS 8 2 3 3 7: NJ CRUSH FC HEAT 8 2 1 5 8: NJ WILDCATS SCHWE 8 1 0 7 9: JERSEY UNITED SOC 8 0 1 7
It's true, agame girls/crush are going to mfa. I'm confused though, they play each other at manhattan this weekend. Are the crush girls abandoning ship before spring. That's not cool. Mfa already had a big roster, it must be over 25 now...easily. Can they cut existing players to make room? I would be looking elsewhere if my daughter was on that team.
I believe it is a different Crush team that is playing in the tournament. Different name - Flames?
Sounds like some parents of AGame girls are afraid of the reality of not getting their favortism. Why else would they leave? Don't tell me loyalty because by leaving crush a week before the season starts is a complete lack of loyalty. I guess they like to play with losing teams?
Is the whole Crush A team going to Matchfit, or just 5 girls? If it is the whole team moving, I can understand they are following the coach, but if it's five girls, that is wrong to do to your teammates, leaving them no team for spring with no notice. My daughter would be crushed (excuse the pun) if that happened to her. I hope that the information posted here is not correct.
I heard it was 5. Maybe they were offered spots for next year and will finish the spring with crush. Otherwise, those parents are not setting a good example of commitment. Is A -guy coaching there too? If not, why would they leave if they aren't really following him anywhere. ?
I would like to know where the crush coach is going. I thought that he is doing training through a-game and not coaching at a club but here someone said he is moving to match fit. Anything is possible and given all of the changes in youth soccer nothing surprises me anymore.
They were always loyal too coach. The group that is leaving follwed him to crush. He wanted to put them in the best spot where he knew they would have the best chance to play college soccer. Notice he chose mf not crush bergen da fake promise. Maybe he knows more than all the da chasers.
what you are saying is that pulling 6 girls from a team and not leaving enough to play a season 8 days before the first league game is loyalty? Do you believe that leaving for the spring season vs moving in the summer at U14 will impact their opportunity to play college soccer? good luck to MF having to deal with existing parents by bringing in 6 new players at this point in the season- haha good luck with that
Crush still has 2 teams in this age group.And with Cedars affiliation will get plenty to tryouts for 2017
What about teaching life lessons such as being part of a team and when you make a commitment you honor it. These parents seem clueless. Jumping from club to club when you don't get your way is not a life lesson I want to teach my children. Their coach that they PAID for additional training (conflict of interest) got FIRED because he didn't act appropriately and has questionable business ethics. At this rate these kids will be following him to South Jersey in a year since he has soiled his reputation in North Jersey.
Crush will always be B level. Good luck.
Make sure you check out Average-Games coaching record and performance for all his teams. Especially the great 05 team which didn't win a game in the Bethesda Tournament. Average is being too kind. More like an F.
No one said A boy was a good game coach but he is good at teaching a usefull set of technical skills. If your daughter had worked hard under his guidance she certainly would be a better player.
Did anyone see Piotr's comment? Im curious.
Everyone here is missing the point. No one said he wasn't a good technical trainer. He is very good. But there are so many other things that go into coaching and molding kids. It is about teaching them how to handle yourself and setting the right example in how you carry yourself both on the field and off the field. How to mold a team into a cohesive unit and build relationships. He got caught doing something that wasn't right to his employer. Instead of admitting he was wrong he made it worse by then encouraging his players and parents to break their commitment to the club and more importantly to their fellow teammates. These kids quit on their teammates. College programs will be impressed. Shame on all of them. Buyer Beware.
So all these girls are going to miss out on the chance to play at Regional Finals as State Cup winners by following A-boy before the end of the season?
@12:31am any player that works hard will be a better player. If you set up cones in your yard and had your child spend an hour a day dribbling around them they would improve
seems to me like MFA with be a perfect place for this coach and players They have sketchy ethics by leaving their current team high and dry and MFa is just as bad by adding 5-6 new players mid year to an already inflated roster.
This seems too ridiculous to be correct- maybe this information is wrong. If the coach were going to match fit wouldn't there be an announcement? And adding 5 players to a roster mid year, when there was already a packed roster seems hard to fathom.
A-Game coach is not going to MFA. All of you here are rambling on and on and have no concept of what the actual reality of the situation is.
No one said he was going to Match Fitb and I know everything that is going on including the fact that he is still pressuring one family to leave Crush. He has been bringing his girls to Match Fit all winter. He orchestrated the whole thing. He is doing his own thing with Average-Game.
If the coach is not going to MFA why would he bring them there over the winter. I'm sure these agame players knew he was no longer going to be with crush but these players going to MFA in the winter/now seems to be a decision they made. what benefit is there for the agame coach for them to go to MFA when he isnt going. As stated by 9:59am post, the coach is doing his own thing with agame
Hey Average-Game next time you post a ridiculous picture of YOUR girls why don't you try some of these hashtags. They are more accurate then the self-serving ones you choose. And all attributes they have learned from you.#Quitters, #noheart, horribleteammate, #1-31, #nomorals, #clueless, #delirious, #unethical, #burningbridges, #Quit, #norespect,
@March 3, 2017 at 10:11 AM - I'm sure he worked out some deal on the side. What was he doing bringing these girls to another club mid season when he was employed by Crush? I'm sure he didn't expect to get caught and then get fired. Getting fired from coaching 4 teams isn't good for ones resume. Spin it however you want. Those are the facts my friend.
it appears that @10:30am seems to be blaming agame coach for the decision made by some of the players he coaches?
@March 3, 2017 at 9:15 AM - Exactly these girls and parents who before this year never won a tournament or even made a semifinal gave up the opportunity to play in the Region 1 Tournament in Virginia this summer. What a great experience it would have been for all of the girls which is now probably ruined for the girls that are staying who by the way are the reason why the won the State Cup.
Maybe they all realized the true situation. Their state championship while a nice thing to talk about did not represent being the best team iin the state. If the only way you get to play the best team is to play PDA in the ECNL and pf em albertson why not go and see how good tgey really are. Mf needs to put the best team possible on the field for every match. So if players are coming that improve a team why wouldnt the grab them?You all are also missing the point of college. These girls are 8th graders. In the last month 2 girls from pda 02 team committed from Duke. If you think the first time they met them was a few weeks ago you are ignorant. The only teams that can properly prepare you for college are pda and mf.
March 3, 2017 at 10:39 AM - Yes you are correct ultimately the parents make the decision. But again he was advising them to leave once he got fired. Which is wrong. And it still doesn't explain why he was bringing some of his girls to another club during the winter. Why not do it during the spring season as a pre-cursor to tryouts which many kids do anyway. It's just so wrong on so many levels and if you don't get that than I feel sorry for you.
So mf just added the top 6 players from the state champs to a team that won 5 and lost one of last 7 games. If you think its mf and pda for to 2 j want to get some of what you are smoking!!
I do know what's going on and most of this is true. Mfa has taken on at least 6 new girls for spring. I don't think agame guy will be a coach as I believe he is focusing on his supplemental soccer company. Why these players would move mid year is simple.. they want to play ecnl. The bigger problem is that mfa sent an email to the ecnl teams families saying that moving foward a roster would be sent out every Sunday for training for the upcoming week. That's right, you read that correctly, the current ecnl girls may not even be rostered with ecnl for the practices they may be rostered with npl!!This seems so outrageous. Can mfa really do that? Can they now at the start of spring tell the ecnl girls they may not even train with their team let alone play in the game? If they wanted these girls added to the club, why not give them offers for next year and let them finish their obligations to their current teams and mfa finish their obligations to the players they extended ecnl offers to for the 20-16/2017 year? Something seems very off about how these youth clubs are running things. Is this how all the clubs operate? Pda? So the crush players may be #quitters but mfa is #shady
@March 3, 2017 at 11:41 AM - Give me some of what you are smoking. Top six players? The top 3-4 players are staying with Crush from what I hear. Some of the girls that are leaving are talented but most of them are in the middle of the pack at best. There are several girls on the other 03 Crush team that are more accomplished (ODP Players) than the Average Game players. But he wanted to protect his girls and not cut them. FACT
yep.....PDA does it tooOpen rostersBest players selected - and that means best that are interested - and could currently be with another clubIs what it is
Crush has been losing players for years and will always. They do the same from other clubs too. They started from taking full teams, coaches and top players for years from the torpedoes red and other local clubs. Was that okay? What about a-man coming over from stallions, then it was okay? What about when cryer-baby brought his team and then left? Why? Was it him, or crush? Every time someone leaves crush, they are always thrown To the wolvesEven tne top players that leave for PDA, they become traders. Looks to me like crush is the problem and every year has a huge problem like this. Saw with my u16, and that age group lived on the board too and always seemed to have some issue. Finally, you will be leaving next and tne same thing will happen. We all move around, let it go now.
You must be very ignorant if you can't see the issue. Kids and coaches move teams all the time. There is the right way to do it and a wrong way to do it. Kids learn from their parents and coaches who you hope act like adults. Clearly they did not handle the situation correctly. You do not leave your team in midseason and quit on your teammates. It's called being responsible and respectful.
didnt they leave after crush fired him mid season? Sounds like the club did that?
And your point is? He was fired for not acting professional and not acting in the best interest of his employer. What don't you get?
Employer, will he get cobra? So they fired him and left all the girls without a coach in mid season. Got it. Why is it always crush, year after year with issues. All I know is they have shitty fields,
No, no - 7:38 is correctCrush had a choice. I assume, anyway.Would DV have stayed on through June had they not shown him the door? Guesses?
Seems like some real crappy behavior by all involved.MFA for being on the receiving endCrush for not seeing this months ago, you get in bed with bugs, you wake up with bed bugsAssGame for sure for thinking its ok to screw over an employer who hired you and gave you employmentthe rest of the kids on the crush team who trusted you as their leader and you split the squad up;Its disgusting to justify it with the everyone does it, screw the win at all costs at any level. karma is a bitch. you watch. assgames business will fall on its face. he'll pull that crap with customers or vendors and they'll walk in a blink.the only ones who think otherwise are asshat, his 5,6 parents, and maybe the matchfit dopes. the rest of the world would call it crapolla.
Let's clarify for the bashers- it is somewhat acceptable for players to try out for a new club after the fall season and move over the winter if they do choose. Like it or not it happens. Usually one offs. when a coach starts bringing players from his own team to another club WHILE employed by Crush is the first real issue and is what led to his dismissal. Deservedly so. No club would tolerate that. then the group of players that were soon to leave were continuing to come to practices even recent outdoor scrimmages to ga be the impression they were staying. Then 8 days before the first league game and two weeks before Jeff cup 6 players bailed not leaving enough players to field a team. I have no doubt it will work out but no one on this board can make an equal comparison to the classless act of the coach and the parents. Had it happened during the winter and notice provided to the club maybe it would be more acceptable and most acceptable after the spring season. So it seems the parents and agame guy deserve each other. Also note a new coach was assigned immediately who is a college girls varsity head coach. Much stronger background then agame guy.
Does anyone know aboys background? Can't find anything on him. Was he just a average HS player that now pretends to be the next training messiah?
pretty good collegiate player
Collegiate player where?
Why no mention of CRUSH and MF playing today. Pretty sad tournament when you have stallions in top bracket.
what is a girls college varsity head coach? Sounds very important.
@March 4, 2017 at 12:06 AM - He played at the soccer powerhouse Darton. A junior college in Albany, GA that is no longer in existence. I wonder if he majored in business ethics and education. Clearly two of his stronger attributes.
March 4, 2017 at 7:49 AM - Crush 03 second team playing MF. Stallions not on that level.
Really - A=Boy? You don't know what a Varsity College Coach is? It's a job you can't apply for since you probably didn't graduate from that great college you went to.
absolute certainty the only posts up here supporting this move, danny asshat, these atrocious parents and this move are danny asshat these atrocious parents or matchfit kids. the incredible mentoring of a C level junior college substitute who scored 2,3 goals in his career. oil salesman.
Nope, no skin in the game and you keep looking worse. Never met the boy, but we have played on the north slope. my daughter has made a move and I know what type of people come out when that happens. Go Danny boy - go, now I'm really on your side. Would love to see you join PDA or WCFC, real clubs.
Oh yeah, I'm sure clubs are lining up to make offers. Haha. What are his credentials - where are his kids playing in college, what is his coaching license. Why do you keep moving from club to club? How have your teams performed? What type of improvement? Please provide me with references from your former bosses - not parents who have paid you to train their daughter. The offers are flying in. A dime a dozen my friend. Seen this movie before.
Manhattan Tourney - Crush 03 second team 1 - Match Fit 03 ECNL 1. Wonder what those college scouts were thinking watching to quote a past post a B level club tie the almighty ECNL team. Joke. Those Average Game girls better get their soon although I'm pretty sure they will have no impact.
Nice work. Why are they the second team? Didn't your so called first team just implode. Do they think they are the second team? MF stinks anyway, haven't been able to build anything in years. Stay far away.
Have no idea on what each parent thinks. I am going by there results and what leagues they play in. One plays in NPL the other EDP. The team that just imploded also seems to play in the higher flights at tournaments. Look at where they are scheduled at Jeff Cup as an example. These things usually give an indication. Match Fit does stink and is now getting involved with "bed bugs" to reference a past post. You are the company you keep.
@9:52am - is that the equivalent of community college? He was a second team all county player in Florida. I wonder if he applies the same training techniques that made him mediocre to his agame players.
Why is everyone so fixated on this agame coach? Crush has the worst coaching staff which is why they have constant issues year after year and why their teams will never compete at the highest level..it looks like a lot of folks here are spending a lot of time trying to figure out agames history when they should be more worried about the rest of the staff they currently have within the Crush organization
The more interesting topic is mfa ecnl tied crush edp team and lost 3-0 to Susa npl. Mfa is a joke.
Can't comment on past Crush issues as I am not aware of them. Obviously Crush made a mistake as this guy seems like a real bad guy.
March 4, 2017 at 4:28 PM - Haha. This is perfect. Average Gamers joining MF. A-Boys Girls are certainly used to losing. #1-31.Match made in heaven
@March 3, 2017 at 10:51 AM - Ha. I guess MF isn't doing such a good job preparing their 03 team for college. Only going to get worse when the A-Gamers arrive. Maybe SUSA NPL should take their ECNL charter after the beating they gave them earlier today. What a joke.
Matchfit is garbage. Bad coaching. Bad facilities. Bad teams. They can barely compete in ECNL hence the withdrawal from the DA.
Poor mfa, what a joke.
@3:24. Not sure what issues you are talking about with Crush. Please do tell. No longer a Crush parent but when one of my daughters was there she was very happy. Had a daughter play for MF and another at Crush who eventually ended up at WC ecnl. Wanted ECNL at U15. MF completely disorganized. Lost a top coach and most of a team last year to WC. They must have known MF wouldn't take DA. Not much quality training there now. WC much more organized but very cutthroat and too much politics. In A bit of disarray since their recent announcement of re-assigning their DA and losing the DOC to the DA. Crush needs ECNL to keep talent. They develop top girls that usually leave when past u12 to go to ecnl.
8:42, who lost their DOC? World Classless? or Match Unfit?
Maybe crush did, it's been a full day without someone leaving.
842 - so do you even have a daughter at this age?
Caught trolling or lying
MatchFit sending 3 players to BOSTON COLLEGE next year, among other top signees
World Class hasn't lost their Girls DOCFake news
Kaz moving to NYSCFC
So Kaz is remaining the DOC of WC and becoming the DOC of the DA. Is that what you are saying?
So Kaz is doing both?
Why wouldn't he? It's only a few teams and Oneal is doing both at PDA. Stop making things up, including the stories about your daughter.
No, Kaz is not doing both. If you have been paying attention, you would have noticed that Kaz is no longer listed as the DOC on the ECNL site. The girls DOC has been running ECNL for about 2 years now.
SUSA won on PKs after a 2-2 tie with BRYC. BRYC didn't have a goalie as she had to return to VA. Was a. Good game to watch as someone from neither club. BRYC a much better soccer team passing and movement was excellent. SUSA as direct as always to a top quality striker.
@8:21 You expect us to believe you watched SUSA/BRYC in the freezing cold but weren't part of either club. We're not stupid. Keep anonymously promoting your kid. See how far that gets you.
Hey Average-Game. 4 Simple Rules for a Happy Life.1. Don't be a quitter.2. Don't constantly lie to your employer3. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.4. Don't act like an asshole.Why don't you post that on your Instagram page.Everyone will soon find out what a fraud you are and how you handled yourself including the USWT, USA Soccer, NJ Soccer, etc...
did that guy peter piortr's daughter leave crush? he posted up here last week but deleted it quickly. i hope she doesn't follow AssGame anywhere, what a mistake that would be. This game is the kids' but parents have to guide these kids wisely. they dont know bronze from gold. assgame is bronze.
What about all the teams and coaches crush took from other clubs? They were employers too with trust. Please explain why that was okay? ask these Northern county clubs about crush.
USWT - What is that? USA Soccer - who are they?
@ 8:50 PM1. Please tell of us when Crush in mid season had a coach from another club bring 6 of his girls to many Crush winter practices and then have those six girls abandon the team he was coaching and join Crush for the spring season. Please do tell and if it happened than it is just as bad as this current incident. And if it did happen does this make it right?2. You are missing the point. It isn't about Crush, MF or any club. Its about the unethical acts of a particular coach and how he acted towards his employer and more importantly the rest of the team. Didn't he coach a TEAM not just six girls. You are clueless Perhaps you went to the same outstanding institution as Average-Game. - Maybe you are Average-Game.
I've been around for awhile. Older players through hs and now a u 14. Never have I ever seen 6 players abandon ship like this. A few I have seen but never 6 from one team. The parents should be ashamed of themselves. Mfa should be held just as accountable bc I have no doubt that they promised these players spots on the ecnl team inorder to get them to leave mid season. They would never have left for mfa npl because they are awful. There should be rules in place to protect teams from this....are there rules?
I see only two crush girls on the matchfit Ecnl roster, not the 6 being claimed.
Six have left the team. Who are the two girls now on the MF roster? What are their names? How do you know they are the Crush girls? I'm sure the others will be added. Also the MF ECNL is almost as bad as its NPL team.
The only point here that matters is that a coach orcherstrated the mid season exit of six players from a team he was being PAID to coach with no regard for the rest of the KIDS he was responsible for. The parents are just as guilty. Disgusting behavior. End of story.
Did Crush get the players checks?Then let them go and move on.
I am a mfa parent. All of the new girls are added to the team roster on teamsnap. They will be playing and it is ridiculous that those parents and players screwed their team over.
Sure you are. Maybe they left because you annoyed them so much.
Imagine being a MF parent and a week before the first tournament you are told your daughter is on the NPL team. I sure hope you MF parents get a refund for the difference in cost of ecnl and npl. Can't believe parents and a coach would just leave a group of girls without enough players for the spring. Says a lot about that coach, we won't mention any names a game, and the parents ethics. The leagues should limit the number of kids that can join a new club over the winter.
6:30ECNL without even trying out. Not bad, eh?Crush 6 will make your kids better, as a team and individually.
8:28Who says Crush '03 NPL doesnt have enough players?They had 2 '03 teams.
It's MF, who cares. so they spend a year at crush and you take credit for them? Sounds familiar. At least they will save a lot of money going ECNL, crush has highest fees in country.
@9:29 AM - The Crush 6 that left were middle of the road players. Complimentary pieces not difference makers. The new girls that joined the 6 Average-Gamers (who came from existing Crush teams) are the ones who turned the team into winners. To be CLEAR the 6 Average-Gamers who played at Stallions and the came to Crush as the Heat NEVER had a winning season before the Fall of 2016.

@929Clearly you are one of the crush parents who decided to jump ship. You sound awfully cocky in saying that your daughter and her friends are sure to help mfa succeed....and before tryouts. I hope you are right but it doesn't change the fact that you and the other parents did a terrible disservice to the other girls left behind. How about teaching your daughter the importance of fulfilling commitments. No one likes a quitter.
this is good for crush, they should join these teams anyway and not be so worried about the money and more kids. Plus they have no direction after this year, just a hand off to cedar stars.. Talk about quitting on your players and sticking with the youth money.
Time is the enemy. Crush girls made right decision to leave.
not to beat a dead horse, and the girls do have a every right to leave in their best interest. I am guessing you are not aware though the way it went down. Existing coach takes 6 girls to MF practices (tampering). 6 girls show up for indoor spring practices and outdoor scrimmages for existing team Crush. 8 days before first league game, two weeks before jeff Cup, all 6 leave. Leaves 8 remaining players. It's called timing and to leave the rest of the team without a full roster at that point and potentially causing the team to withdraw from a tournament is just bad ethics. If the club was notified let's say in January at least they would have had time to make alternative arrangements. that is what is in bad taste.
Maybe they shouldn't have FIRED their coach!
Explain why he shouldn't have been FIRED?
@1:47 are you for real? The crush coach took his players to another club, how can you expect that crush wouldn't fire him when they found out?
I am sure there are only a few people that know the real FACTS! This site is absurd and kind of creepy. The fact that it is anonymous is even more pathetic. Need to get out of here fast! LOL
1:47 has a point. You make business decisions and those decisions have ramifications and unintended consequences. From what I understand girls were commited to coach to stay for spring. But what does it say about the quality of training at a club if the coach didnt feel they would be in good hands going forward. Not a big endorsement for crush. Apparently he was leaving end of spring regardless. It sucks how it happened but if crush platform was respectable they all would have stayed. Feel bad for who stayed. Wasting next ten months.
Maybe the Cedar Stars news played a role in this.Coach would have had to work for Cedar starting this spring (at tryouts).
@1:47 - Has no point. He deserved to be FIRED. He was already on shaky ground. At the end of the day the parents are responsible for their actions and how they treated the club and their kids teammates. North Jersey is a small soccer community and they will have to deal with their own bad reputations.
@ 2:19 PM - The new coach is more qualified and actually has real credentials as Head Coach at Montclair St.
Being the coach of a terrible D3 program? What are his other credentials? Coaching a below average team at Crush?
Ignorant losers! There were a few parents that wanted him fired. They got their wish. Blame them. Bashing people for crap they have no idea about..... pathetic!
3:55. Whether someone deserves it or not you want to understand all the permutations before making a change. Business 102. When those kids go D1 and your star goes d3 then you can ask them about the small north jersey soccer world.

exactly @4:54 And now these dolts are threating CHILDREN.I think that should be the end of this thread unless everyone wants to take off their masks and use real names!
@4:54pm - thanks for your comments DVin other words you did nothing wrong it was the parents fault - shows the self serving individual you are
Where were children threatened?
Piotr is the only one to take his mask off. But what did he say? Whose side was he on?
@4:54 PM - So DV you did nothing that warranted being FIRED?@4:59 PM - D1? There are two girls with the potential to go D1 from that team and they are BOTH still on that Crush team. Although you are still trying get one of them to leave. You are trying to take credit for her excellence yet you had NOTHING to do with her until this year. FRAUD. I haven't seen ONE post threatening children. They are the innocent bystanders - both the ones that left and the ones that stayed.DV - have you reached out to the girls that are staying? Weren't you their coach/mentor. Didn't they spend hours training and playing for you. Aren't you someone they looked up to? Or did you just only care about a portion of the team. GREAT job coach. You want a job?Why would anyone want to get you fired? Your own actions caused it.You know if it smells like sh.. than it is mostly likely sh..
Fun stuff. Somebody is having a really hard time. I thought I have seen it all, but this guy takes the cake. And I'm talking about the obsessed parent from CRUSH.
6 girls leaving is devastating especially right before the start of the season. What is the rest of the team supposed to do now? And if the former coach orchestrated it, I don't even know what to say. I hope this never happens to my daughter because I would be so angry. I would not be able to just let it go.
Funny, wasn't Matchfit involved in something very similar last year, but the difference was that the fired coach made sure the girls finished out their commitment to their teammates.
Matchfit is a joke. They not only took on these 6 crush players but also others from different clubs. The roster is over 30 and only 18 go to a game. There should be some rules in place in the league to prevent this from happening. They have all our money but will screw kids over the first chance they get. Ecnl needs rules to protect the players.
Didn't someone say that PDA basically monopolized the ECNL teams in Jersey and MatchFit had to pay extra money just to be granted ECNL?
No. Are u really that dumb?
6:34am. I know for a fact it's true, they bunged some money to one of the ECNL clubs in CT to vote them in.
If you look at the Crush team on GS, the girls' names are on the roster...then compare to MF ECNL roster on the ECNL site. 5 names are the same.
If Crush has not released the players, MF can not roster them all. They are allowed 2 discovery players, but Matchfit has to get Crush's approval to roster them. So either the Gotsoccer account for Crush just hasn't been updated yet, or Matchfit is in a lot of trouble.
Please, I'm sure the gs roster has not been updated. BUT, wouldn't it be an interesting turn of events if crush refuses to release their cards?
Crush shouldn't release the players. The players and families have dug their own grave by leaving mid season and leaving their teammates high and dry. That behavior is not acceptable and doesn't leave the parents any bargaining power with Crush. I suspect Crush will be the bigger people and release them though.I do agree though, there should be rules in place to not allow players to join other clubs mid season unless there are extenuating circumstances. For MF to drop players down from their ECNL team to NPL because of the influx of new players is just plain wrong. I'm sure ECNL wouldn't be happy to hear of clubs behaving like this who represent the ECNL.
Crush is not ecnl so the players don't need to be realeased since they are different leagues.
Are you sure about that? They do and can compete in some of the same tournaments. Then what?
@11:52 how do you know this definitively?
Match Fit just poached another Crush player from a different age group
I heard it from one of the Staff at the club in CT that MF gave money to. If you don't believe it then it's fine by me, just telling you what i know. Think about this for a second though if you are at all dubious. Given Matchfits behavior recently (as well as previously), would it honestly surprise you in anyway that it wasn't true?
People are a bit naive. 1. At the DA and ECNL levels it's survival of the fittest. MFA has every right to improve their teams.2. Crush kids have every right to move. Tough decision I hope.3. Parents should assess their kids skills and realize they are likely 1-2 levels lower.4. It's just a game.5. I understand MFA parents being upset when their kids are displaced. PDA is as bad or worse. Eyes wide open.
Rumor mill is in full effect. Lock up your daughters or they will be poached. This is too good. Cant make this sh*t up.
It is totally acceptable for a player to move clubs. No one argues that. There is a right ethical way to move and a wrong way to move. For 6 players to leave 8 days before the first game and leave a club and 8 teammates hanging is unconscionable. Unprecedented during a season.
Its poaching, pure and simple - to invite a player to change teams in March.If players are following a fired coach I have less of a problem with it.
OkayOkayOkayNo go find a new team and club
Most of these kids on this Matchfit ECNL should thank their lucky stars that the best, top kids on so many teams out there dont give a rats ass about chasing jersey and leagues and are committed to their teams. If the best top 3 from all the teams showed up, a huge number of those players would be gone in a heart beat. Thankfully there are countless amazing kids and amazing parents and support teams that offer a better situation than Match-unfit-for-anything, and come to realize, its just soccer. Crapping all over your friends and breaking your word isnt worth doing at any price.
I dont know WTF you are talking about 8:24.
8:44 there are only a few girls in the state that are special. Most of these top 3 players on all these teams end up looking very ordinary vs the skill and atleticism combo in the ecnl. My youngest is u14 but I have two older kids. If these crush girls were more very good players but not special then they 100% made the right choice. There are many kids that can take that spot and that spot may not be there next year. Its easier to keep a spot than get a spot. My oldest was a very good player but not top 8 on her ecnl team. She still ended up going to a good d1 school. No way she ends up there from npl. These kids made the right choice because most likely they will get early college exposure that would not happen at any other no. Ecnl tol team.
