    Anyone else heard anything on the Blues being denied entry into the 03 Pilot league? Blues logo isn't on the DPL website but they have added the San Diego Surf, OC Surf and the new Arizona club. Blues website still has BH down as coaching an 03 Pilot team?

    Sure this is going to upset the girls (and more so the parents) who signed for it and thought they would get to go to the DA showcases etc. Does this mean those players now also miss out on ECNL at the Blues as other players would have already been signed for that team as well?

    AR was only looking for bench players anyway. Interesting if Blues got denied.

    I have a friend whose daughter plays for that team. As of Monday night (the last time we spoke) it was still a DPL-pilot team. Also, I doubt players passed up Blues ECNL to play for them. It will be a good DPL-pilot or Flight 1 team, whatever the case may be.

    If this link is accurate, then I'd say Blues is out.

    If BH and Blues don’t tell the truth, rosters will be full and there won’t be places for those players to turn if they want something more.

    Would be something if they know they are out and they aren’t telling the families.

    Wow, you guys just built a whole anti-Blues conspiracy theory out of speculation. The Blues logo was on that site earlier. If it's off now, more likely it was at the Blues request as they are not a full participant in DPL (and unlike SD Surf, they don't have an affiliate that is either).

    Same thing could be said about Surf not being in ECNL this year if the rumors are true. And seeing how ECNL is still a valid recruiting option unlike DPL, the impact will be much greater. Nothing like a Surf homer.

    If I read this thread correctly -
    1. Blues were originally part of the pilot program and the pilot program used the Blues name and logo to promote it
    2. Girls made decisions to play with BH because Blues were part of the pilot program
    3. Blues denied entry / voted out of the pilot program
    4. Talented girls forced to play SCDSL Tier 1 or look elsewhere (the teams that voted Blues out).
    DPL should be ashamed of their actions. The only ones being hurt are the girls who relied on the information (and the Blues name and logo) on the DPL site promoting the program. Oh that's right - It' s really not about the girls or developing the game - it's about power and $$$$.

    Use of the Blues name and logo to promote the pilot program + voting Blues out after girls made decisions + getting Blues players = a lot of material for a lawsuit. Whether it's legal or not - it still smacks of being unethical and contrary to the notion of promoting the game.

    Sounds like a lot of judgments based on heresay, interpretation and assumptions. How much of what you state can be supported with fact?

    This stuff about Blues is hogwash. They have ECNL so they don’t need DPL to keep players.

    Surf has ecnl and pilot team. What is the purpose of the 03 pilot team? Did all of the current 03 Da players make their 02 Da team next season? If so, congrats to all!

    I think the theme of conversation was in regards to the current 03 Blues ECNL team. From all communication the current Strikers 03 ECNL team will be the Blues 03 ECNL team next year. Question on table is what happens to current Blues 03 ECNL (BH) team if players don’t make AR 03 Blues ECNL team next year. Hence discussion of DPL/DPL 03 Pilot team at Blues.

    The current Strikers 03 ECNL is one of favorites (2nd seed) in National Playoffs. Very good team.

    FU Fact! You don’t even have kids playing soccer. I have consistently said that Premier and SCDSL have good teams and DPL and those leagues are on par. The only bull is the endless crap you spew here. Since your kids are done why don’t you follow their example and call it day like they did.

    Does anyone know what the requirements are for a Club to have an 03 DPL Pilot Team? It looks like every Southwest Da club will have an 03 Pilot Team with the exception of a few clubs? Requirements??

    I think not is more of opting out rather than meeting any requirements.

    I have heard Slammers opted out. I had not heard about Blues opting out after originally being in, at least that's what the original Goal Nation post indicated?
