But now I get it - the post mentioned, for no apparent reason, that the True goalie made 12 saves and gave up 3 goals in a certain game. So, is somebody suggesting that the "California Dad" is actually the True goalie Dad, who ranked nine east coast teams, merely so he could slip in the fact that his own son had 80% save percentage?

That sounds awfully crazy to me, however, it did start me thinking:

(1) why would a California Dad keep stats on the True goalie;
(2) why are one player's stats on one of the weaker teams on the list relevant to the team rankings.
(3) this poster did seem very focused on the goalie landscape; he mentioned that the VLC goalie is better than BLC, for instance, so maybe he is scouting for his next team.

I have observed crazy behavior from True and Hawks Dads on the sidelines, but if this was written by the True goalie Dad, this takes the cake!

And by the way, if any kids are reading this, nobody is criticizing you - just your crazy Dads!

I can assure you I am a WCS dad. I live in California. I commented on the True's goalie stats because WCS completely dominated the game against True, but with the goalie standing on his head, we kept getting turned away. I also commented about the Crabs face off kid, the VLC goalie, etc....kids that played very well the day we matched up with them. I don't know a single kid, parent or coach that plays on any lacrosse club in Maryland. I don't know anything about the politics between and among these clubs either. I have no dog in the fight, I just like lacrosse and am happy my son and the California kids have the opportunity to play against high caliber, East Coast competition. I am just a visitor here on your site. Feel free to ask me any questions about WCS....although I doubt you care much given we are a middle of the pack squad right now....but hopefully getting better!

I find it very odd that someone we accuse me of lying about all of this, but I guess such is that is what happens on this forum. Believe what you want but I am most definitely a WCS dad.
