Look at the newspapers and the news right now. All people are talking about are the Houston Astros. They won a World Series a couple years ago. The team executives and players are apologizing. Why are they doing this? They are doing this because it was a garbage win, that’s why. I get that the Astros were i cheating and the stuff we are discussing technically isn’t cheating, I understand that. But the truth of the matter is its borderline garbage. I’d personally rather my sons team lose and battle their butt off, then win like garbage.

I'm only here for the replies to this!!


JC hasn't been able to qualify in each of the past 2 years, and his 23 and 24 teams have been head and shoulders above the 25 group. Unless they are taking 10 teams from the north, I don't see True Blue traveling anywhere in July.

You're comparing the inner workings of MLB to 12 year old lacrosse. Okay. Listen, when your son hits H.S., come back and tell me if this really mattered. You have no clue!

Some of these kids will be playing HS next year. Besides that’s not the point. Point is winning like trash at any age is a disgrace.

The perception feels like most clubs and coaches value winning and don’t develop the roster, just wreck confidence with false hopes and encouragement. So stay within rules and put the best team together to win.

So it sounds like it should be age appropriate teams on grade? Would kinda be like that if NY didn’t have the bizarre December 1 cutoff date. It should be September 1st, beginning of the school year. My son has an October birthday and I wish we held him for reasons other than sports, but would never consider it now for just lax. However, I see how much more of an impact he would have playing down. It’s a clear advantage. So not really making point here, but I see why we all get so nutty over the grade/age/holdback debate that endlessly rages on.
