    Really surprised that there hasn’t been any chatter about West Coast FC becoming Surf OC..........

    Can you only imagine how many car stickers will have to be changed?

    If this is true how will this affect WC DA status? Can one club hold two cards? Which would hold true for ECNL.

    It shouldn't affect it at all. And yes, Murrieta SURF exists already and has U12 DA status on the Boys side.

    While I think Surf is a great organization, it's sad to see the brand being diluted like this - soon it won't mean anything and they're just going to have their own league where their teams just play each other. Did anyone see the full page ad they put out in the soccer.com catalog asking if teams wanted to join the franchise?

    It is sad to see the era of mega clubs. IMO West Coast has some of the best coaches around. I understand why other clubs have become franchises-economies of scale, name brand etc. but not sure what West Coast gets out of this. With so many A licenses and contacts I would believe that they could have been just as successful at franchising.

    I wonder if this will be set up as one of the standard Surf franchises or whether they hope to poach some coaches? West Coast has had a very stable coach base unlike Surf the past few years and could gain a lot having some coaches with great contacts at the Polo Fields.

    Didn't you miss one? I thought there was a Surf club in San Diego. Must have been confused.

    Ha! I love that movie. I put Gleaming the Cube with Christian Slater in the same category. Great movies for "wannabes" and "posers".

    Let me rephrase so as to not confuse. I was thinking ahead. If WC was given DA status as WC will that change if they now become an affiliate. Where as LAGSD and LAGSB where given DA status as two separate affiliates. If that makes sense at all.:confused:

    I thought WC had issue with DA. I know many players in 05 got displaced from flights like dominoes due to the problem. id hope just changing a jersey wouldnt circumvent unfixed issues

    Your question makes sense. All of the mergers/affiliations don't make sense.
