Do the hows and whats and whys of player registration mean a thing to whether or not we qualify for the World Cup? You seam very concern about the MNT and the WCQ, you're one of those people that wants to cover the sun with a finger disregarding the future MNTs. For starters the CSA hire the wrong coach (good coach but not the one we need) to lead us to a WCQ and they will continue to do so because there is not consequences to their decisions and that has to end asap. You to build from the bottom up NOT the other way around, the players registration moneys have alot to do with everything because is a big part in the financing of a our national program. My point is that funding the top level structure from the grassroots, no matter how efficient, is a non-starter because the graassroots is in no way qualified to give us professional leadership. We don't need leadership from the grassroots, what we need is professional leadership to guide the grassroots organizations towards building a true players development system. Sorry Eric, but you're wrong. The men's national team is for professional footballers. Full stop. Professional footballers are developed by professional clubs. Full stop. There is absolutely nothing at the current grassroots level which impeads us from producing competitive footballers. The problem is that the grassroots has a say into everything from how are fixtures are marketed to who gets hired as national team manager. We need separation of church and state. As soon as possible. You all can dream about a day when Canada produces as many elite 13 year olds as Brasil. I hope you get us there. But my sneaking suuspicion is that it's the professional infrastructure in Brasil which takes those 13 year olds and turns them into elite footballers. I know it's not waxing and waning and wanking done by this 13-15 member board about administration fees. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
