Assuming that Reign survives.  I've heard rumors about Su and PcNW ECNL for weeks.  Now some rumors about not so happy issues with DA.  Mostly since Reign really needs a sponsor to continue, and Eastside can't afford the cost.

Is EPD now dead? or will it become the elite program of the elite with Pac now having ECNL?

And RCL D1 will now have the SU Tango and PacNW B teams move up.  Yeah, all the SU Copa teams are in or close to last place, but they never get sent down.

If I was assessing/coaching the Referee I would take three approaches:

If no misconduct was given; such a reaction could generate a negative response.

If a yellow card was given; I’d ask what were the considerations to allow for avoid a send off?

If a red card was given; I’d ask what considerations allowed The send off to take place?

The FIFA Considerations are now being used to assist the thought process when making decisions during a match.

Throwing a ball at someone is not something to take lightly.

Rush players live too far north.  No one from lake Steven's north is gonna even look that direction. I would bet the farm on less than 3 players from rush would even tryout for seattle u ecnl st all ages combined.  Surf maybe but not enough.  Players that are gonna leave have already bolted from surf for the most part. Plus their girls side remains strong and tempting those teams to stay in tact. You might get some b,c' or d players looking to move up but that's it.

The eastside and Seattle u experiment already didnt work.  You expect eastside parents to drive into Seattle 4 nights a week?  Highly doubt it.

SU can pull in players from the North.  Rush, and whomever is still around from the Seattle Surf fiasco.  Surf will lose several coaches and their top club officials to some other teams in the area, so their ability to keep and attract talent may be limited.  Although compared to PacNW and Spokane Sounders, I'm not sure that will help.

Maybe the Eastside players will come over if they are not getting a look on DA.

Good for pacnw. Not sure where seattle United has enough talent on the girls side for ecnl.  Just more diluting of the rcl league I suppose.

Curious which club families are leaning towards to be the best with this new merger. I have an 11 going on 12 year old and I'm contemplating switching clubs. What's it gonna be folks? Sounders, WE or Surf?

I would say Surf has the biggest upside. The advanced training and/or additional training one can receive outside WA is amazing.

With all the money you get from coaching club, it gets harder and harder to find qualified coaches for all the high school teams. WIAA is fairly strict in its rules for doing both, most coaches have to make a choice between the two...
