What Madlax is doing is fully within the rules. Do you think the LI Express team isn't made up of the best players from the several LI teams? Do you think that BBL doesn't hold a tryout for their WSYL team? There are other examples.

Let's be real. No team made up of 100% of its regular players ever wins this tournament.

The Hawks for instance are actively recruiting to fill several holdback slots with 2026 kids from other teams instead of calling up players from their 2027 squad.

Hawks are ducking the Oktoberfest tournament this weekend were all the other real top 10 national teams are there playing (colorodo teams dont count). What MD team has beaten those teams other than the Hawks? & the Hawks have lost to several of those teams playing.

Who exactly are the Hawks ducking? Please name the several teams they have lost to.

Pretty accurate, but here is my spring projection:

1. Hawks
2. Crabs
3. Looneys
4. MadLax
5. VLC
6. BLC
7. 91
8. No clue

It’s interesting how no one has FCA listed as an elite team anymore. Aren’t they listed as a top 15 team in the country?

The holdback critics on this board are not making fun of children, they are making fun of their parents. But, certain Hawks Dads do have a habit of making fun of opposing players on the sidelines, which is unfortunate.


[ChillLaxin] on social media came back to bite them in the butt.

63-2 - Edge from Canada and Tigers - undefeated this fall

Just looked up that tournament. It is on Saturday and Sunday. There are 10 or so football players who would have conflicts. Not to mention soccer. It would be impossible.

Do they do 8 or 10? Next Level and & VLC weren't in Elite in 2019. It was FCA and who else to make 8?

Since the 2026 Hawks began, here is a rundown of their losses over the years.

3rd grade
Bethesda 2x
Highland Park Mohicans 2x

4th Grade
Bethesda
Laxachussettes
Looneys 2x
PLC 2x

5th grade

6th grade
Edge - Canada
Tigers xxvi


People tout 63-2.......but it is much higher than that.

It is a team of well coached, talented boys who have a passion and drive to get better. To everyone on the outside that does not know or just wants to complain....simply put statement by the coach... The Hawks are not for everyone, and my coaching style is not for everyone. Practices for the players was run like a college style practice from the beginning. The boys are held accountable by the coaches and by each other. They all want to get better and all want to push each other to be the best.

Oops, I am the one who posted the list with no clue to the last team, and I totally forgot about FCA. Not the nicest group of parents and coaches but they fall somewhere between 6 and 8 on tha list.

Do they have 10 teams in Elite? I thought it was only 8. I hope it is just 8 because I don't know of a tenth team that would avoid being pummelled week to week. Not so sure about Mesa either.

After looking at tourney machine - half of these teams played in the B bracket this summer at NAL and Hawks beat the rest except Tigers. Oh and Hawks beat Sweetlax in the finals - Tigers went home early

Crabs needs to consistently beat Looney’s before you put them ahead of Looney’s.
