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!

This post just nailed it!! True Goalie Dad is insane and literally has his kid on the move every year to find the next best thing. That is why if I were a coach I would want nothing to do with this family. Everything wrong with youth sports wrapped up in this guy.

I find it comical that you think I am a True Dad and am lying about it. The fact that you cant accept that I am a WCS dad and instead think I would post all this stuff to slip in stuff about my son....that is all that is wrong with youth sports and with this board in particular. But you carry on your fantasies and conspiracy theories. I am happy to prove I am a WCS dad if there is some reasonable way to do it. Only because it will put an end to these ridiculous theories and show how foolish it is to accuse anyone of this.

Maybe if your rank the teams differently they would believe you?
