    Maybe someone can explain this to me, because i’m perplexed, So in Illinois you have Adversity Ranked number 58, Yet you had this team finishing 10th to end the year after National’s last year playing for Lions Jr/ 1st Alliance, Sports Performance finished 11th to end the year , The whole team moves to a different club and not only do you see such a drop from the ranks but you have 1st Alliance Ranked ahead of them with only 3 player who’s played in an open in the last two years, If i’m missing something please let me know.

    1. By my count, only six from Lions 151 are on Adversity 161.
    2. One of those six is not Rachel Muisenga, whom I believe was a huge part of Lions’ success.
    3. Adversity is a new club and may have growing pains.
    4. 1st Alliance is coached by Beth Baetzel, a proven winner

    OK your nuts, Everyone knows you in particular TAWA that you play favorites especially with Spri and certain players, you must of clearly told this Mr or Mrs Green this info which is fine when the season ends will see, Maybe your right that’s why the so called proven winners pulled out of the all the tournaments they normally play in and also pulled out of the 17/18 power league this year because they even know they can’t compete at this level or trying to avoid teams Illinois, Do better homework and get back to me, i hope you bring your clip board with you this Sat to take notes.

    It is hard to respond responsibly because your thoughts appear incoherent and topped with poor grammar.

    1. What does Spri have to do with anything? You asked me about Adversity and 1st Alliance!

    2. Where is my homework suffering? You asserted that all of Lions deserted for Adversity, which is not so. I also offered other reasons why I opted to rank 1st Alliance ahead initially.

    You should know that in this and all other areas, I never play favorites. If Adversity is better, it will move up the rankings to the spot it deserves.
