Folks:

To put it bluntly, I don't have time to police the message boards because of folks' personal agendas. If you have a beef with a particular club, director, or coach, please take that issue up with them directly.

I have been contacted now three times in three weeks about alleged nefarious actions of certain individuals and clubs.

I have deleted the entire thread in regards to the new Carolina Surf club in Charleston. Please do not start another in regards to simply bashing the club or the people involved.

Thank you. While I agree that personal beefs with specific clubs are not necessary on the forum, it is also important that factual information can be shared. I would hope that legitimate news that is discussed would not be shut down because said news might paint certain individuals or organizations in a negative light.

I am concerned that some lurkers might complain in order to suppress legitimate information or reasonably crafted opinions that paint their organization in a negative light.

I believe that if the information is truthful and factual, then it should be shared. Parents spend a lot of time and money in club soccer. Too many clubs are less than transparent and forthright in how they operate their budgets, collaborate with other clubs, and other decisions.

I concur that people should talk to their Directors personally. However, I can say that without question, I have learned more here.

My own experience is that these boards have been valuable in sharing information, some of which was more in line with truth
than some Directors I have spoken to.

I thank you for your time and commitment to soccer in SC and hope these forums can grow and thrive.

I couldn't agree with you more! We all understand that youth soccer is a business to these guys but somewhere in our parenting hearts we like to think they care a little about our children. When these "take overs" happen we know its every parent/child for themselves and we are often left in the dust with our soccer balls in hand. The only way to try and stay a head of their game is this forum sometimes because a parent or a very caring coach will give us an inside scoop on what is going on.

Well put. Just looked at the thread in question this morning and did not see anything outlandish or personal. Unless something was posted later like that, it seems odd to remove it now.

Spartina posted a link to a lawsuit currently being heard in federal court and people commented on those named in the suit.

That link contained publicly available information and I'm not sure what was "nefarious" about anything but the activities alleged in the suit.

Maybe if we had some more information about what was wrong with our posts, we could avoid this happening again.

Id say this is fairly clear & easy advice for all of us to follow SCSoccerfan. Take your grievances directly to those with whom you are upset.

Look at the rich history of this board, Id like to think we would all prefer it to go back to a place to share information and discuss topics without all the attacks.

We almost made it 12 hours from Kevin's polite request to the first attack.

Sorry Kevin.

Seems an odd world where a person can demean kids and make comments about male genitalia and then accuse others of not behaving well.
