Your Kid’s Not Going Pro

A Youth Sports Blog

You want salacious gossip about youth soccer?

Psst… I hear there’s a Web site called Turf Monster that talks about what soccer moms are shagging what coaches, lets you hate all over little girls teams and shows you amazingly racist comments about referees. Well, at least that’s what the Dallas Morning News said about, a soccer web site and forum based in, and concentrating mostly on, North Texas.

(Believe it or not, this is Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, pulled off of Flickr. With that gut, God save his spleen.)

If you know me, you know there’s nothing I love more than hot talk about middle-aged women and stupid referees, so I registered for the site under the nom de soccer mom “notgoingpro.” However, like Playboy, you have to crawl through a lot of boring chatter before you find any good stuff.

Not to say the reporter, Barry Horn, is a big fat liar. After all, he’s the man who brought down Micah Grimes. It’s just that, like most message boards, has a hardcore group of posters who will talk about anything and everything, most of it dull or incomprehensible if you’re not familiar with the subject matter.

The most interesting posts I saw in a cursory look at the site were the ones in which people posted odds on what youth league teams would win this week. You mean parents are taking bets on U11 teams? If so, that would explain why so many parents freak out on the sideline.
