This thread is full of the biggest collection of cry baby dads I've ever heard in my life. I feel sorry for your boys that have you as male role models.
All the clubs operate under the same rules that they pushed for. Are they complaining or just a handful of you dads who's son has to play against kids 18 months older? I don't hear the Kelly's or Kevin Doyle or Matt Hogan crying and pushing things to go back to age based. Why is that? Really I'm asking why the clubs you hold up on a pedestal make no effort change the rules if they are at such a disadvantage. Because they all depend on them. The fact is, more of them choose to play for Crabs and you don't like that they kick your asses.
The horror your sons must face just stepping on the field. People here say Crabs are only in it to win. The crying her is because winning has become so important to you as well.
You are clearly demonstrating that you are the biggest cry baby, not the other people who challenge Crabs. Every opportunity is taken by the Crab faithful to push it away from them and try and make others look like they just like what Crabs is doing. And this bullsh*t you are saying about playing against 18 month older kids, you are way off base or you just can't count. Many of the Crab 2020 players are 24 to 30 months older than many of the other 2020 elite team players.
I'm the first to admit that other 2020 elite teams have some holdbacks, a few, maybe 2 or 3 and that is nowhere near the large number of holdbacks on Crabs 2020 team. Other teams do not design or try to crate a team of holdbacks, but that is exactly what the dbag Ryan McClernan does.
So, Crab nation, now it is your turn to start crying and yelling that you do nothing wrong blah blah blah.
