    Good luck to all the teams participating in the Vegas Cup this weekend.

    Was great walking around and seeing the kids having a great time. The hookers, stripper cards and homeless made for some interesting conversations

    We took a limo bus from the fields to the Vegas sign a few years back. Got stuck next to a driving billboard with “Girls Direct to your room” with near naked women pictured.
    That was fun to explain to 10 year olds.

    Kids: “Daddy, why don’t they have clothes on?” (Looking at stripper cards on sidewalk)

    Me: “I think they’re selling underwear.”

    My niece: why is there a girl in her bra and says Gentlemen's club
    Me: what where. I'm not sure what you are talking about *with confused look on my face*

    Vegas Cup, never again.

    How was the smell of marijuana at the hotels now that it is legal? (I realize it's not "legal" to smoke in a hotel room. But that never stopped anybody before).

    Dang. I forgot about that. Should have gone with my niece. I did hear that the weather was actually not so bad, the fields were still nice and the refs did a good job.

    Yeah, my 13 year old daughter knows to just turn her head on all the inappropriateness. I do have to say the 04G high flight refs were aweful. I've never had a problem with refs with the many tourny's we do but 2 games were determined by bad ref calls. We had 3 red cards called against us in our semi-final of the high flight when we've had 1 yellow card accumulated all year. None of them were warranted. It was fun playing with 9 girls against the #4 team in the nation. We have emailed several complaints. Hopefully vegas can figure this out and fix it. Conveniently, they don't even provide a way to talk or email anyone regarding situations like this. Shame, shame.

    I agree on the refs. Most were very young and inexperienced. Some looked to be 14 for a tourney we paid over $1000

    The trophy presentation was horrible, you just showed up for your trophy and they gave it to you with your medals w/out the other team present. No professionalism.

    @soccer dude -what were the red cards for? I have only seen 3 red cards once and that was for fighting. For a U13 game that is crazy.

    I would have loved to avoid trophy presentations, except for the National ones. It is always the same thing and got old plus it would give you an extra hour of gambling.

    3 red cards?? Wtf happened? We played the same team in the quarterfinals and they frustrated one of our defenders into a "shove" resulting in a warranted yellow, but 3 reds?

    First, there was no fighting of any kind. The refs were missing obvious calls like a trip from behind that ultimately led to one of their goals. I will admit that las vegas was the better team but it would have been nice to lets the girls decide that instead of the refs. For fouls, I'm not talking about the subjective shoulder to shoulder stuff. Our star striker got 1 maybe 2 calls called against her prior to the red but nothing major and nothing super physical. She went 50-50 hard into a ball with her having the advantage and a break-away and the ref called a straight red. The other girl (a bit smaller) fell to the ground hurt so ref just assumed it was our fault when she went hard to the ball as well. He never warned her or gave her a yellow on any previous calls so our leading scorer was out for the 2nd half. At best, it was a free kick for the other team if he felt the challenge was a bit careless. But, he didn't even say why he gave the red card to a 13 year old. At half, our assistant coach then went to just ask why she got the red card and the las vegas coach jumped in and started yelling at our coach. A bit confrontational and our coach got a red card. Hugh? Why not a double red at least? The las vegas coach never even got warned. Then, in the 2nd half our new striker was slightly physical and pushing a bit from behind defensively trying to get the ball and got a yellow card. Again, no warning. 10 mins later she got another yellow for accidentally kicking the ankle of a girl, trying to get the ball. I admit, this one was a hard sloppy challenge on the ball and the other girl went down. So, we played with 9 girls for 25 mins. At this point, both sides were very quiet with disbelief as we lost 6-0 and had no way to come back from this. At this point, the las vegas coach seemed to try to calm his girls down and even pulled out one of his girls when a confrontational shove match occurred with her and one of our girls. That was nice to see. He figured he was going to win so why risk a red card for his team before the finals I guess. My issue is that the ref let the game get out of control. Reds are always a last resort and should only be issued after being warned you still are playing carelessly. Our coach also said that the final game had the same issue with that same ref .
