    I don’t normally post, as I just get entertainment out of reading others post about different topics. I guess I’ll join now...Sac_Attack is one of the original posters on this thread... Go back and read his post on page 1... He clearly had a bad experience with the old FCEG and that has now moved over to Blackhawks. I’m unsure as to why he hasn’t let go as it’s closing in on 4 years. He clowned FCEG for the coaching qualifications but now is super High on IR. Is there a big difference? Don’t they have daddy coaches and old FCEG coaches too? Not sure. He clowns BH for a tournament in their 2nd year, yet I must have missed that amazing tournament IR had? Why get upset about a tournament your daughter is not playing in. Let it go bro... enjoy soccer with your children.... if they are having fun, maybe you should too.

    East Grove, you’ve been pretty logical, Sac attack.....no comment. Like I stated before, the natural migration of players to the clubs should dictate who gets the fields. IR was fair to my child this year but my children are going for a more preferable pool of coaching at BH for tryouts. I foresee a mass migration from IR to BH, just by speaking with our other parents, hopefully BH can adapt.

    Seems like FUFC has a real bone to pick with FC (obviously) and IR as well. There is clearly some misinformation going on. Having been to tryouts for IR/BH/FC it was pretty clear that IR was the winner of the where do FC players go when they are sick of FC. It is true that some players/teams went to BH but not nearly in the numbers that went to IR. In the end, who cares though? Does the "badge" really matter? It is all about coaching.

    The one thing that seems to separate IR from BH/FC is that you hear very little about those running the club where with FC it all about a couple of British cats and BH is all about CP. Personally, I prefer to hear very little from club Presidents/CEOs/DOCs and club politics in general.

    We'll see what happens at tryouts (assessments at FC:)[​IMG]) in May/June....I see more exiting from FC with both IR and BH benefiting. The one thing that will always keep FC going is there stranglehold on the Elk Grove Rec teams. Half of the u-little's parents don't even know there are other comp clubs. They have managed to make Elk Grove soccer synonymous with Rec and Club....eventually parents figure it out and bail but it takes a year or two.

    One club has a professional businessman running the club and making great looking flyers (picture from 2015) for rec registration, cool names for tryouts (assessments) and even a high end retail location to pickup your equipment.

    The other 3 clubs have been doing everything else that the first club does/will not do. Simple business concept take down the giant or just take a big piece from their register.

    Although two of the three clubs were present before the challenger invasion, the last club started shortly after. All three clubs have been fluid, one to adapt to the customers request. Out of the three the one with more money (players) got more problems. Now the "problems" are what you make of it. Each club has problems but you will always hear from the largest group.

    Give the club a year to adapt and change. I am sure that even IR and BH knew they would get some former FC players last spring but to get another group again in the winter probably even blew their mind. The overall growth by IR and BH was more than they could dream.

    If you don't like boards, presidents and DOC's dont worry they are chasing around the elected officials of EG trying to get their name on that Grant Line road Soccer Complex.
