This thread is living proof that nature abhors a vacuum.

Wow. I came to this forum to talk about Soccer. My family and I just moved to KC and I was happy to hear that KCMO had great programs like Little Kickers and Happy Feet. I don't know about all the different programs yet, but while reading this thread, I've read nothing but stabs back and forth instead of real debate. People like Paul12 and radical and so forth. Are you people adults? What a shame. This thread just gets useless after so many unintelligent comments that just waste space.

I can see a pro-legends person not liking me much in this thread, but why Radical? He hasn't posted that much here to warrant getting called out like that. Brittany, is that you?

As an aside, I think I've been part of multiple attempts to actually get some soccer discussion going on this thread, but that's neither here nor there.

I think we all tried to go our own separate ways and agree to disagree about 50 pages ago,but we got dragged back in by some outlandish statements and now its just got to the 'fun' stage were we are just prolonging this post for the novelty of having over a hundred pages of....not really very much!

The Seinfeld thread - about nothing at all.

Zindane5,

Just this last weekend I coached a game where the coach from the other team pulled me aside afterwards to say that he has never seen kids with such amazing footwork and that he was thoroughly impressed by their abilities on the ball. On the way to my car I got stopped again, this time by a parent from the other team, who just wanted to tell me that that was the most "entertaining" game of soccer that he has ever seen from players of this age. He said it was really an exciting game to watch because of the risks and growth that he could see happening right before his eyes. We lost that game by three goals so these two were obviously not impressed by anything win related. Keep in mind, that this happened just this last weekend. I have countless similar stories from countless other weekends. Coaching the Legends way, comments and responses like this happen all the time. So I would have to say that in my experience you are very much in the minority.

But maybe that's just me. smile

Repetition of the same thought or physical action develops into a habit which, repeated frequently enough, becomes an automatic reflex.
