No one is censoring your post. But you have to understand everything NCSA (or similar organizations ) posts has marketing in it. 45% leave their first team is FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt, you better acquire our help so you don’t shortchange your kid). Do you think it’s coincidence it’s the first data point? But where did the data come from? Who was polled or what group was analyzed?
You have every right to post you believe in the value of recruiting services. But everyone who disagrees has the right to post their opinion. There probably won’t be enough posts to make an accurate data analysis. But from my twelve years on the board I would say the view is eight or nine to one against recruiting services.
Make your point. If people disagree make a counterpoint. But don’t take it personally. There isn’t a person on this board who hasn’t faced disagreement.
I put it as the first data point, cause I thought it was interesting that the number was that high. I was curious as to what others thought about it? But, since you are asking, the survey was administered to approx. 12,000 student-athletes, 7,500 parents, 1,000 club coaches, 1,100 high school coaches and 500 college coaches, as well as analysis of college roster data from 1,400 schools, including 365 Division 1, 284 Division 2, 472 Division 3 and 279 NAIA teams.
I love debating. I expect people to disagree and discuss why. I just don't get a lot of whys. I don't appreciate being accused of working for the company when I give my opinion. It's juvenile. Can't have it both ways. Can't have folks disparage me and then say not to take it personally right? Just because one says favorable things about Perfect Game doesn't mean they work for Perfect Game.
I better acquire "your" help? Who are you? I know who I spoke with at NCSA. I have his name, where he went to school, where he played, where he coached. I can google him, my son can talk to him on the phone. Skype with him. My has spoken to coaches he introduced my son to.
I don't mean any disrespect, but who are you? As far as I know you never played the sport, never had a kid who did either. Yet, I am suppose to take advise from you over someone I know exists? Think about that. So where do you get all your information Rocky? RJM! What's his name and what are his qualifications? oh, I don't know.
