    No idea who is even on that team. Their roster isn't listed, and I don't know anyone who went over--but I'm out of the loop majorly now.

    It's going to be a big wakeup call. They are clearly out of their league playing wise.

    So the answer to the earlier question "will Burlingame even be able to field teams?" is: no

    And, can I just say, the adults surrounding that team have done the kids a giant disservice. Especially the club leaders. The parents have a small excuse and little hubris--they may think that competing in Norcal State Gold is "high-level soccer", but they haven't really seen or played against the truly elite teams.

    But the club leaders, and Albertin in particular, have no excuse. They should have known.

    But they have eleven players on the field! That's fielding a team!

    July 28, 2017 USSF Press Release:

    "In order to best compliment the idiotic GDA substitution rules, we proudly announce the adoption of the Mercy Rule for all matches between NorCal and SoCal DA teams"

    If things could not get any worse for Burlingame.

    So Cal Blues 01/02 8-0 over Burlingame U17G. Save to say at this point they don't have the players to compete in the DA.

    Thorns beat Pateadores (upcoming team in irvine) 2-0 and EQ thrashed LA Galaxy.

    03/04

    EQ over real socal 1-0
    Thorns got smashed 4-1 to LA Galaxy

    Those are the only teams I saw..along with that 11-1 Burlingame loss.

    10-0 loss for Burlingame at 00/99 DA and EQ got beat up in that age group too. If the results posted are accurate it looks like more lopsided games than competitive ones at the u17 and u19 DA games. So much for creating a top league.

    The grumblings I read on the socalsoccer boards is that teams/clubs are sick of Surf and their Elitist attitudes, so many clubs (ECNL and GDA) are heading north to Norco. This could be the reason that there isn't too much parody in the GDA brackets of surf. Then again, it's only the first day. Smaller clubs like Burlingame and PSV have NO business being in the GDA and have no clue why they were invited. Shame if you ask me that teams are getting pummeled 10-0, 11-1, 10-0, 11-0.

    That being said...at Silverlakes
    99/00
    Lamo (gda) beat Eagles (gda) 1-0
    Mustang beat Legends (DA) 2-1

    Surf opened the door to another forum by going 3 and 4 flights deep. "Best" has no meaning there anymore.

    Any insight into the quality of play? Curious how the younger ages played, too.

    Real So Cal vs. Burlingame: 10-0. Even just the highlights are hard to watch: . Almost like college team vs. high school JV.

    Wow. Looks worse than expected.

    Today's scores so far:

    04's- 0-10 vs west coast
    03's- 0-12 vs galaxy sd

    Can you be removed from gda before league starts??

    You've got to think the parents will self remove.

    Remains to be seen. The parents in/around Burlingame (very affluent) area have pretty big egos, so having the GDA patch might be worth the persistent beatdown.

    I would be shocked if Albertin doesn't try to shift at least some MVLA teams/players over to Burlingame next year.

    Why would MVLA families want their kids to go to that dumpster fire at Burlingame? Most MVLA kids live closer to MVLA fields, teams practice 3 days a week, and kids can play school sports. Driving to Burlingame in rush hour traffic 4 times a week to train with a team that's consistently losing by big numbers, while not being able to participate in outside activities doesn't sound very appealing.

    Well said. That's my assumption as well. Only way mvla goes da is if they completely take
    over Burlingame DA status. Having Albertin's name on their Da after results this weekend isn't the best look either. Most know it's not his club but still.

    You must not have read about the new DA guidelines. Kids CAN play high school sports OR they can continue to play GDA. Its not longer pick and choose one. It's bad when your 3 GDA teams give up 57 goals and only 3 for. I thought GDA was going to be a good idea but after what I've witnessed, it's gonna be worse than NPL gold flight. It's gonna take a few years before all the dust settles but until then, gonna be ugly. So far, Earthquakes have been the best Norcal team to show well with two age groups advancing to the finals, followed by Thorns.
