    Has the proliferation of leagues, academies, tournaments, and cups improved the development of the top 25% skilled players, or just the top 25% big/tall/fast players? Or has it just spewed more trophies in all directions so everyone can feel special? Not mentioned are the Presidents Cup, Association Cup and several other very popular cups that suck parent and refereeing resources so hundreds of families can drive 4 hours to BFE. Meanwhile, quality coaching is very difficult to find and it never seems to be anywhere nearby.
