"Well my kid is very happy and still plays soccer for fun as he did before. He just didn't see soccer as a viable career choice and felt he would be happier getting a good education. To think that my son is missing out on some life lesson just because he chose an education over soccer shows how out of touch you are. As I said before the choice was his. To feed your curiosity, he graduated with an MBA in Finance and works in Hedge Funds."

Good for him. He made a choice that he felt was best for him - as did the original subject of this post (Danny Bedoya), and as do a multitude of other kids, who either want to pursue their dream of being a pro player, or, for whatever other reason, don't feel the urgency to go to college immediately after high school. Now, while I admit I am making assumptions, I think it's more than likely that 1) your kid didn't earn his MBA and start his hedge fund job until he was at least somewhere in his mid-twenties - after 4 years of undergrad and 2 more years of graduate school, and 2) your kid wasn't good enough to be a pro anyway, so it wasn't really much of a "choice" to begin with. Bedoya is still just 25 years old. Let's say he decides he's had enough of pro soccer and matriculates as an undergrad this fall. Theoretically, in 6 years, by the time he's 31, he can have an MBA too. How has he lost out in this scenario? My point is that there is usually more than one path to get to a destination, and, just because someone doesn't follow the same path as your kid doesn't mean it's any less viable. I think it's pretty "out of touch" to not be able to accept that other people might have a different set of values than you do. Also, to go onto an anonymous soccer message board and brag about how much money your kid makes is mind-numbingly idiotic.

Swedish Universities are free... what's interesting is that Swedish kids move out and fend for themselves while they study, taking loans and grants to do so. https://www.theatlantic.com/interna...free-college-education-in-sweden/276428/

"This is the key. While Swedish students end up with relatively high levels of debt, the monthly costs of carrying that debt are pretty cheap. (It's about 3.8% of estimated average monthly income of new graduates, according to one study.) Interest rates are low. They're set by the government and maintained through subsidies. And the length of repayment is long: 25 years or until the student turns 60. In other words, the Swedish system of student debt is financially manageable and sets students up to begin their lives as viable adults separate from their parents.

Compare that to the US system, where high levels of debt are increasingly impeding young people from taking on the trappings of adulthood. A recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York found those with student debt retreating from purchases of cars and homes, for example."

Nuance is a hell of a thing. wink

Many countries have free college or very low costs - like $5000 a year kinds of costs. Imagine if attending a decent school here only cost even $10K what an impact that would have on hundreds of thousands of people's lives - better jobs, less debt, much faster ability to buy a car or a home - and the economic health of the country. We have the money, but over half of the US budget goes to a bloated military rife with corrupt and wasteful military contracts. Re-setting our priorities can make it happen.

Attack the military, interesting. There are stupid Democrats and stupid Republicans, I can guess which one you are. The real problem in this country is the elite who make money off of whatever industry fuels their campaign and their illegal gotten gains. These industries include The medical industry, the insurance industry, gas and oil, the failed private prison system, the scientific community, the list goes on and on. Both the Republicans and the Democrats suck off the middle class tax payer. Only the ignorant Republicans and the ignorant Democrats still do not realize this, and want to fight between two parties instead of holding the ultra elitist’s and government elitist’s responsible.

Kneeling started because of bad treatment of blacks by cops, but what you idiots don't get is most cops are men and women of color, but keep fueling hate by throwing the race card around, according to you all white people are racists.

The kneeling started because of unarmed black people being murdered by cops and there rarely being consequences for it. It's not a "race card" being thrown about... it's recognizing an injustice. And "most cops" are not people of color and women. And even it WERE true... cops killing unarmed people shouldn't be tolerated. Racism is a huge . problem in this country... it's silly to act like it's not. If you're not racist, why would you even be offended?

I thought this forum was for Youth Soccer and bashing 12 year olds just trying to live their best lives. Not Swedish Universities.

I’m offended at the way you want to gloss over facts. Black on black crime is incredibly high. Therefore the cops patrol those areas. Until you have walked a beat by yourself in a crime ridden area I suggest you keep your armchair quarterbacking to yourself. Not everything that happens to a minority’s is a white persons fault.

Rocco Commisso just bought Fiorentina for $200 million. He doesn’t give a crap about the NY Cosmos and stopped funding the academy. I’m sure he will do the same with the Cosmos. He now owns one of the biggest clubs in Italy why would he bother with a 3rd division American soccer club that loses money.

And yet Rocco keeps funding his Men's team while is suit against US Soccer continues. He'd probably fund a serious team in the NY area if we had an open pyramid.

Sounds like that 13 year old girl who was in the Nike add - all she does is train, even is home schooled, while dad manages her social media following. Very good for her age but not star when you consider all the training that has been done.

That's how it works when they move into U16/U17. At best maybe 1/3rd of the younger players make the older team. Some who get cut this year will make the older team next year, but plenty won't. Pro teams want pro potential players. They're not doing this for sh**s and giggles. They also don't want to run "pre-DA" teams like a lot of pay to play clubs do (because they want to keep getting your check). If your kid didn't make the cut you should help him re-evaluate what he wans ad is getting out of the system. It may be worth sticking it out, or going elsewhere may be a better fit.
