No way its that high not for BSS/BSN. I'm pretty sure most of those clubs are part time with maybe 1-3 being full time. I think a lot of the players at BSS/BSN clubs have part time jobs outside of football to make ends meet.

Yeah I wouldn't worry about it unless you are allergic to dust. If you are really that concerned, which I don't think you should be, do as nick suggested and get some type of mask.

I know FIFA has rules on switching national teams. Lets say George Striker is eligible for the USA and Norway and plays in the U-17 World Cup as a substitute for the USA. Despite being an U-17 event the U-17 World Cup is still an official tournament according to FIFA and now George is cap-tied to th...

awesome man, do you need a work permit to trial for clubs? I think i really like the idea of trialing to clubs in poland, firstly because its my homeland, and secondly i know the polish league isn't very strong, and its probably not even top 15 im sure in europe. So i think it would be good to star...

Re: qualifying to play for a certain country

just a quick question here, is there a certain percent of nationality you need to be to qualify to play for another nation? i know you can be a citizen, but what if you are not from the same country. Let me give you a quick example. My grandpas dad came to USA from poland. He married a girl that wa...

I'm not going to lie, any kid whose in a state team or high level development program has to have highly dedicated parents. You have two options. You can accept the fact that the only way to become a professional footballer is to have parents who are loaded. That's the easy path. Or you accept the ...

Tell your parents you are getting one. My brother got a huge devil's face on his calf and when my dad found out....... Also think about where you are going to put it and think about future things like jobs. I would avoid the wrist area and forearm if possible. Some jobs are weird about visable tatto...

Good suggestions everybody! Can someone elaborate on Criminal Minds? I've heard a tiny bit about it, but I don't know. Does it have a storyline? I kinda pictured it as more along the lines of Cold Case for some reason. Lost, I was maybe saving for a third go, seeing as how I had never seen it, only...

what if you rip up the contract will you go back to being an amatuer player? No once you sign with an agent and they agree to represent you and market you to clubs in order for you to eventually sign a pro contract you are considered a professional player. Lets look at the NBA. There were a few pla...

Once you sign a contract with the agent to represent you often known as a "representation contract" you are considered a professional player in the eyes of the NCAA. It doe...
