On multiple occasions leading up to the launch of the DA, ECNL tried to broker conversations with DA folks in an effort to collaborate on one top league (this is not just me talking...there is record of this). DA said thanks but no thanks...we are doing our own thing and by the way, we are going to take you down cause our product is going to be so amazing. All your players are going to come to our league because it is best. Because WE know best. Is this what happened? NO!! We are now split in two "top" leagues and have both experienced a massive watering down of the talent pool as we all know. However, I would say based on the things that have happened after the second DA season, the scales have definitely turned towards ECNL because of the HS soccer issue and the fact that ECNL is 100% on being a platform for girls playing soccer in college. If DA got their head out of their ass, they would allow HS soccer and just like that, most top players would move over. It's really as simple as that. Did I miss any details folks... please correct me if I am.
