There were a few tweets about this being the youngest atl 2 to start a game or something like that by the club --- tweet has been deleted now, can't find it.
They took a whooping. Atl 2 and staff don't care about winning, but you would think being competitive and playing an appealing style of soccer would be a priority. Given the current structure and landscape of soccer in this country, this isn't surprising, with no threat of being relegated, the club just uses it to get young players experience and to get first team players back in shape when coming back from injury.
I just look at a player like Castro who signed a Atl 2 deal and it looks like his career is going backwards. He dropped out of high school signed a contract and I believe (hopefully) at least got his GED equivalent.
How do minor league baseball teams handle this balance?

greenmonkey: atlfutboldad ... LOL ... Yes but it would need to be three sub boards: One for the Girls, One for the Boys, and One for all the people who want to argue about it instead of ignore it.

surgesoccer: SCCL board was from when it was announced until it launched. It's not longer used but kept for historical perspective. Nice to look back and see how angry, panicked... name your emotion... people were.

soccerlegacy: I would love to see a single final game at the end of the year where SCCL Cup winners play the Ga. State Cup winners. Unfortunately, both sides would be too afraid of what the repercussions of losing would mean.

surgesoccer: Soccerlegacy that would be interesting. 05 Boys - CFA Archies vs UFA Norcross. Previously played in u12 Academy Cup Champ w/ UFA winning 7-2. But totally different teams now.

slickdaddy96: LOL he stepped in it especially not realizing that inter-Atlanta customers are probably a little more liberal and pro-LGBTQ considering where the club is located. That being said the facebook mobs need to chill. Everyone doesn't need to be "cancelled"....

slickdaddy96: every time a mistake is made. That is what is wrong with this country right now. The social media mobs and social justice warriors go too far trying to destroy everyone that might not agree with them to shut them up and silence their free speech.
