Did Crabs lose players? Why would they drop down. And unless Next Level acquired talent, they should stay AAA.

I'll take a crack at it :

Elite -

Hawks
91
Looneys
Bethesda
Madlax
FCA
Next Level
VLC

AAA -

Crabs
Roughriders
3d Virginia
Darkhorse
True
Green Hornets
Sidewinders
FLC


Where is AYLC?


AA

This one looks good. I will be very interested to see if Crabs go down to AAA, thought they had to be locked in to Elite because of the brand name. AYLC not mentioned despite being in AAA championship last year. Do they go up or down?
Anyone have information on the league on Saturdays at St Pauls. MPL Is that a quality

So going 1-5 with your only win against the 0-6 team who folded in the offseason is reason to STAY in Elite ?

They could have stayed the same and wouldnt deserve to be there. They won over the summer when playing down against AAA level teams and couldnt even beat all of them.

They did lose players, and probably gained a few holdbacks from their 2025 team as is their M.O. You should have to prove you belong in Elite based on what you did the previous year. Thats why Next Level ( who won AAA ) and VLC should go up to Elite. Sidewinders and FLC were the top of AA and should have the chance to compete at AAA this year.

One losing season in elite doesn't constitute a move down. Look at 91. And if they did acquire reclassed kids, then even more reason to stay put. Plus Daddy Crab won’t allow AAA.

If you believe what you read here....they've lost enough talent to Hawks and True to not be competitive at AAA this coming year.

With all this talk about the new team True Annapolis, how much does it cost and who are their coaches?

Heard they're still having tryouts this weekend and might have my son got over.

Strange they don't post that info-huh?

The year before I was the Head Coach and we went to the championship against the Hawks.
Also, get your facts straight before posting as I am not coaching the 2026 True Annapolis team.
I look forward to seeing you on the field.

Can you wear a name tag because I dont think anyone knows who you are?


That was Dave Daniels


Again if Dave Daniels walked onto the field I wouldnt know who he was?

Hello ∂-bag. You are nowhere near as knowledgeable as you think you are.

The HOCO league is set by a competition committee made up of the top clubs. This is not determined by previous record or summer results. First, last year's 91 MD team one won game in three years and remained elite due to the club owner. VLC is owned by Crabs and will not put the team in Elite and Crabs in AAA that just won't happen. Elite is a marketing hammerhead and messing with it effects $$$. The other clubs will never allow one club to have two teams in Elite.

True took over MD Wolfpack and I didn’t see any results there. In fact. What makes everyone so sure that this new True project is going to be successful?

Understand politics are in play, but...if the best 8 teams are in it, Crabs is not and VLC is. Crabs did not play elite in the 25 division last year.
