    Rec doesn't pay for year round soccer is funny. I said the same line as that is what the brass wants you to believe. If they say it enough times it must be true, right?

    Rec is about 30% of total revenue and year round is just above 50% of the total revenue. The remainder is other revenue makers like camp, uniforms, etc.

    So how does more than 50% of the total revenue get spent on staff/coach salaries? Add the other costs of year round (fields, lights, admins) and it clearly dips into the rec revenue.

    Those "in the know" should be able to answer that.

    It will never happen. The egos in charge MUST leave the club in a better position than when they started. They have dug a giant hole to get out of. Until they get the soccer complex built with THEIR name on it don't expect anyone of them to step away anytime soon. Those ego have spun 3 new soccer clubs since they took over. Yet they still act like it's never the better.

    How many times did I hear "it's war with IR" or "RM is going to loose his ass." That's the attitude of YOUR coaches, making sure the kids of the other clubs are destroyed to fill your ego hat.

    San Juan had a good showing at the Davis Showcase. The 06 and 05 SJ met in the final. This was good game to watch. I'm sure both enjoyed playing each other.

    My guess would be that the 06s (parents and girls) enjoyed it more than the 05s. :)
    But a good showing for SJ indeed.

    I was away for several weeks and thought I would check this message board after getting back to see what has been going on. I don't know if being so quiet is good or bad? I am going to guess things have settled way down in EG and the area? I asked some friends I know and not a peep?! All business now I guess.

    Same stuff, kids running away from the biggest club in Nor cal. The crap show has bleed down to the rec side. Some teams had over a dozen schedule revisions in the 48 hours before the first game. Teams have 3 bye weeks in a row. Even more disturbing is the lack of care for the kids. Many teams playing 9v9 have 18 kids. 11v11 teams carrying 18+, one team has 20 kids. So much for equal and at least 50% game time as promised in the bylaws. You should get better and reduce your mistakes year over year not continue to screw the families of EG. It wasn't always this bad but the new regime likes the rec money but not the headaches those rec families bring.

    Rise up and look for other rec options they are out there and offer way more including a free uniform kit ($9.99 cost) that some charge over $30 for.
