Default Coaches have infiltrated this site

This site started out as backlash to Soccerhead but after reading the last two weeks it is clearly been taking over by coaches again, not parents.
No parent would know some if the information posted, immigration status, financials etc.
Best advice read EVERY post as if a rival coach is posting it, as it probably is.

Parents generally post about their teams successes, rival coaches talk about other teams failures, it's in their DNA.

Please find the last positive post on this site? Just when you thought you had finally found a forum to vent turns out its just another coaches site spewing their biased club rhetoric.

Reader beware!

I think you are totally off-base thinking that parent don't post negative posts and spew biased rhetoric about other clubs. I would estimate that that is 90% of what they post! Parents overly identify with their kid's club and get caught up in defending it and putting down other clubs.

I do believe parents are culprits but when you read many of these detailed posts about club finances etc. it is coming from coaches of opposing clubs not parents.

Some of the posts are certainly coming from club leadership (owners, coaches) in a deliberate attempt at "product positioning". Build your club up, tear the competitor down, all in an attempt to win. It is no coincidence that there is a flurry of this type of post right before tryout season.

It's good as long as readers keep in mind that its anonymous. This CT board is busy for the first time in years if not ever so expect all kinds to give it some attention.
