The da has failed. Most professional teams in the NBA, NFL, MLB measure success with RESULTS. Winning a championship, a pennant, making the playoffs, etc. The DA was supposed to create incredible players that would help the USA win the World Cup. Geez they didn’t even make it and we are One of the richest countries in the world!!!! That’s reason enough to scrap the entire program and fire every single US Soccer person in charge. ECNL is a better league that needs to be improved. Yes rage has a few very good teams and if they get their act together at the top they could be very good across the bosrd. Blin is set to retire in 2020 so expect changes. My prediction: 1) Thorns and placer will be asked to join the ecnl hence ending the GDA in Nor cal. Crazy to think ecnl will have only one club (MVLA) in Silicon Valley! 2) Lamo Loses players to mustang as rage players stay home as the club improves once Blin leaves. Blin is a nice guy but he has it all wrong. 3) earthquakes abandon the girls and Deza forms his own club again ( like Ireland and the Utush brothers).
