Listen in below, as John Pranjic does a great job of hosting a discussion on topics ranging from how and why 3four3 got started, to where we are now, to where we’re going.
And of course the biggest problem with American soccer – a system that limits our market’s potential, disincentivizes investments, alienates the majority of the soccer demographic, and puts the game on a leash for the benefit of a few and the disenfranchising of the many.
The current system is about power and control over the game and squashing both opportunity and agents of change. It is not benevolent, it is not about “growing the game” for all, it is not about unleashing the game for everyone’s participation.
And if we want that to change, practitioners [of all stripes] in the field need to get involved and make their voices heard.
Did I feel anxiety over speaking out against the regime that controls the game, and is a gatekeeper to the have and have nots in American soccer?
They can make up any politically correct excuse, and squash us like a bug.
