    Never, ever, EVER give your credit card details out like that. Seriously, they play on greed. Too many times working on an IT helpdesk I've heard stories of people losing money on these things. Think about it. If they get your CC details, AND you fill in the rest (Name, address, phone etc) this is ALL information they can use to access your account details.

    Yeah, I'm leaving for VA Beach tomorrow morning, so I won't get to play for a week.:( I've had it for less than a week and I've already mastered almost all of the songs on Medium mode.
    Does anyone know if the Adidas outlet in Hagerstown, MD is any good? How about Leesburg, VA?

    that's what i figured. just weird that i think i did enter a contest of the sorts and got an email like that. but, I basically assumed that if i was really a winner, they would already have my info.

    Plus they would probably contact you by post or call you if you had won anything because like you say, they'd have your details!

    Go on the Becks!

    The irony that he was replaced by the guy whose inclusion ahead of him earlier in the season is pretty much the reason he decided to leave, and then self-same Reyes goes and wins them the freakin title, well that's far from lost on me. Bittersweet me thinks

    Also how about Reyes, at the club of ur dreams, win them the league in uber dramatic fashion, yet most likely to be kicked out the back door b4 next year

    Or Diarra, moping around the pitch like a sulking teenager coz he "don't want to be here" only to score a header that also pretty much wins them the league.....

    Throwing a coach into the air in celebration, the self-same coach the whole team pretty much hated and mutinied against earlier in campaign, fully aware he may not be there next year...

    Coaching a team to the title in ur first year with them, as u did in ur first stint, and still possibly being out the door. Cud he b the only coach ever to spend 2 single season spells at the same club and win leagues in both?!?

    Oh the irony, and the said Dream Team was cancelled! Madrid will have about as realistic an off-season as Harchester ever did!

    England U21's, gotta luv BritPhobic soccer.....so the german ref sees fit to allow a full on national assault on Matty Derbyshire after he scored, apart from giving a token booking to like the keeper or sum chump and then a ridiculous one to Milner (presumably for being a poor substitute for Bentley), then sends Tom entire-huddle-stone off, presumably for looking suspicious whilst posessing un-naturally wide shoulders. No doubt it'll result in severe reprimand for England, our fans will be kicked out of europe for ever and Italy will be awarded another World Cup coz they didn't do so much match fixing this past season.....

    beautifully placed, if i must say.

    I need to rant really quickly.

    My club team, roster of 15 last year. Made the semifinals in I think 3/4 presitigious showcase tournaments we were in. Semifinals of state cup, lost 0-1 off a corner kick with about 15-20min to go.

    We lost 5 people to various reasons before tryouts (one ACL tear, won't be back until October - two are moving - 1 quit soccer).

    NOW, two of our starting defenders have jumped ship to play for Greensboro, the team we lost to in State Cup.

    Greensboro is 2 hours from here, depending on which field you are going to. They are going to have to truck that, there and back, 3 times a week.

    I'm very unhappy right now, because yes, we did add some players at tryouts... but I don't know how many. I also love how they decide this a month AFTER tryouts. Both players have told us in the past week through email. Nice.

    There is a team meeting tonight, but the meeting was called before the 2nd player left (she sent her email today). So it should be interesting.

    I'm grumpy. :[


    edit--> Oh yeah, they jump ship after we blow through premier, and get promoted back into Region 3. Greatttt.

    What did they say their reasons for leaving were? Or did they not say?

    "Better opportunity" seemed to be the running theme.

    Considering both teams will be region 3, and we both go to the same tournaments, I don't see why driving 2 hours is a better opportunity.

    Well I dunno...I suppose if they think they have a better chance of winning things with this other team than yours then they want to take it I guess. That's the main reason I left my team, they were too inconsistent. We got to a cup semi, two 5th-rounds, and still managed to finish 7th. I've had three years of mediocre crap, and it's just got on top of me. Not related to your players I guess, but hey. That's my rant. :)

    It's a sad truth, but loyalty barely exists nowadays, and then only in very subjective forms.....
    But if u r in same comps, really gives u the chance to gain uber satisfaction of sticking it too em proper nasty style! Show em the grass ain't always greener etc etc

    there was a player or two on my team when i was a kid that did that shit. one of our carefree defenders let them know when we played them again. there has been bad blood with those kids ever since.
