There are a lot of young girls involved in soccer these days. Do we really want to train those girls, to have the mindset, that if they don't make the "super team " of that specific year, then they have no chance of winning, and no chance of attending a National Club Championship? These young girls, who have played the game all their lives , deserve more from the soccer community!! Womens senior soccer most certainly will have to move in a different direction if it is to survive.With up and coming talent and more to follow because of the new turf fields and better coaching,it would be a shame if the current mess, remains status quo!!

I agree with the two previous posters. Creating the so-called "super team" a few years ago to make a run at a national medal was okay as a one time deal. However, that team and subsequent editions have been a bust at every national competition since then. Other than having one coach going around thinking he's king of the hill, loading up one team is deterimental to women's soccer. Some of the girls sitting on the bench would be much better served and have a much more enjoyable season if they went out and started or played major minutes on other teams.

LCL you took the words right out of my mouth. I have been an avid soccer fan for years. I couldn't care less if I see a game this season. It's men's and ladies intermediate for me.

The biggest problem with senior soccer is the creation of the power-house teams. I mean who wants to go see games where you know in advance who's going to win. You know who is going to win the season before the season starts. They should re-name the teams "Holy Cross Kirby-the-Stacked". I'd sooner see an Intermediate game than pay 4 bucks to see a blow out. Its like the Regatta a few years back. You knew who would win. They'd only be rowing at the possibility of a record time. Little kids were waking up on Regatta morning excited like it was Christmas and crews didn't want to row if there was a small breeze out. I stopped following it, and now I don't see very much fans in watching senior soccer. People are killing the leagues so they can have a better shot at a more competitive game up on the mainland come fall. I'd sooner see some more competitve soccer in our own provience.
