Man that's really dope. Do you think colleges here are a reason why they don't do that here? I mean if all the talent is going straight to the pro's colleges would be sh*t out of luck.
Yeah, the pro leagues have "age requirements" which forces kids to go to school. The pro leagues aren't actual partners, but they sure as hell act like it. Baseball does draft high schoolers though, but the only youth they sign are in foreign countries like the Dominican Republic. They'll sign a 12 year old Dominican kid, but won't sign an American until after he graduates high school.

The NCAA would lose billions in revenue if the best amateurs never suited up for a college.

Iím not exactly sure why we do that over here but I hate it mainly because It stopped me as well as my other two brothers from continuing to play. We all stopped after high school because it wasnít going anywhere and to try and get into some of the tournaments to get noticed cost too much.
Its crazy. The pro clubs have enough resources to develop youth academies. Literally wasting potential.

I don't care for Bonta at all TBH but yeah it looks like they didn't tell him straight up. I knew something was kinda fishy today when Papa and his son Derek weren't on the air today. Today was supposed to be Derek's last show before he starts a new job at NFL Network. I wonder what happened...

Iím not much of a fan of his either but they couldíve at least manned up and told him what was gonna go down. Now heís off the radio completely I was thinking theyíd add him to Steinmetz and Guru but I doubt they wanna throw off the chemistry those two have.

There mustíve been some bad blood behind the scenes. Maybe Papa just decided to up and leave Situation seems kinda weird to me

Bonta's staying. Morning show is the same. Steiny/Guru/Bonta doing 10-2 and Damon/Ratto/Kolsky doing 2-7.

Papa's the only one leaving. We don't know why yet.

Watch KNBR re-team Papa with John Lund.

Sucks though. Loved listening to Papa on 95.7. I'll give his KNBR show a shot at least to start but I hate that station.

Towny is on another AM station doing full time A's coverage now. Too bad. He was good too.

I'm Raiders and Giants (I know it's weird) but I stopped listening to KNBR years ago because of the non-stop Giants talk, annoying traffic reports and sh*tty sound quality.

Nah, not weird to me. I got a few homies who are like that too. A's/9ers or Raiders/giants.

But yeah man, i wonder if we'll ever find out what happened with papa. He doesnt seem to be the type to do sneak sh*t. Plus i think bonta said papa was the one who vouched for him when he started at the station. But who knows

Maybe he's been wanting to dip for awhile but was sticking around for derek.

Wasn't Papa on KNBR way back? I could've sworn Bonta said that one time and that Papa brought him over to 95.7. I always thought KNBR were a**holes cuz they dumped Papa, Bonta, Damon and Ratto.

Clubs send scouts out to find and sign young players for their a football academies where they develop them until they are ready to sign them to the senior team. Clubs recruit children sometimes as young as 9. They will offer a*sistance to the parents while training the child and they cover school and travel arrangements. For example Barcelona found Messi at 13 and brought him to their academy which usually doesn’t happen for a foreigner but he had skill so they brought him out and took care of him and his family.

When the child is ready ready to sign a professional contract usually around 16 or 17 they start to get paid and depending on their skill it determines how much.
They are farm systems like baseball to develop the kids for the big clubs that’s how they work in Europe.

In America the youth have to pay for all of that which is the problem because a lot of talent that could be playing can’t afford it so they don’t play and that’s why American soccer sucks, we could easily be as good as other countries but the pay for play prevents it so, the talent we should be developing we don’t.

Hope that helps you, if anyone believes I’m wrong on anything feel free to check me.
Everything you said is true but I'd like to add one additional point, even those young kids are being paid to be at those clubs and it's perfectly legal. Players who are yet to play a professional game can make several times the annual salary of whatever nation that they reside in, as children.

And that 'assistance' is very significant. Homes purchased and given to the family, private school paid for, jobs for parents just to keep that child attached to the club.
