There has been some movement. Hopefully this Open Cup is the first step.
Those of us who keep track of this stuff, and go to meetings regarding this stuff will be there to support a team(s) who makes it past this stage in the game. If and when that success continues during league play; we will be there to make sure they will be allowed to continue to progress through whatever the league morphs into.......
Some of our voices are being heard......
I remember the PDL granfathering teams in, the coaches and associations thought that the grandfathering would be permanent unless the teams sucked. Nope, the teams did well and then got kicked out anyway. And the same people who ran the PDL run the Sub-Committee.
The aim seems to be obvious in these rules. To try to force kids into the high priced RCL clubs.
Even so, Manny is apparently running around Spokane Valley telling teams and players that they will never be accepted into the RCL via any system unless they go over to his amalgamation.
Redkard, Recent history has caused such a total loss of faith in the WYS and such a massive distrust of the RCL and their henchman Todd, that not enough people believe in your undoubtedly sincere statements to trust that they will ever be treated half decently, let alone honorably. It is that simple. WYS has to do something to rebuild the bridges that they and the RCL have burned. And this is nowhere near enough, even if it were honest and straightforward rather than just the latest recruiting ploy.
