It’s probably just the area I live in then. In Northern California there are 5 DA teams close together, 6 if you want to include Sacramento Republic. Players move in and out of the Quake’s academy all the time even though the Quake’s are not charging the fees the other DAs do. I know at least some of the players the Quakes would like to have back. I also know players that have played on the Quake’s non DA teams and have been hoping to be selected to play for the DA squad. They could properly go play against the Quakes on another DA team if they wanted, but they would rather hold out on the dream of playing for SJ.
