I was glad my daughter was the keeper


I didn't have to put up with the bs about how this persons kid should be getting more playing time than my kid. I did hear it from the other parents who would seek me out to bitch about how their kid should was being used all wrong. It was really an odd dynamic though being the keepers Dad.

I saw it more at the younger ages...11-12 where kids who came from money were playing when they shouldn't. One kid really stood out. By 14 that became less and less. Also when my daughter was 14 the 2 clubs in Boulder merged which also brought in a lot of kids from Longmont. At 14 it became about winning which falls right in line with some of the other gripes going on.
