One of the biggest complaints that coaches have about players in this country is they do not watch the game. This is very, very true. Instead of sitting around and complaining about it, how about try to solve this problem. My coworker and I tried an approach with the men’s and women’s college team that we were working with a few years back. We first invited all of them to join a free Yahoo fantasy league for the English Premier League (http://uk.premiership.fantasysports.yahoo.com/football). We hyped it with some friendly trash talk about who was going to win. We believed that even the players who weren’t interested in watching soccer would join just for the competitiveness and the banter. We got the majority of the players from both teams to voluntarily sign up in our private group. On top of that, we started emailing short YouTube clips of great goals and top players doing tricks. The results were much better than we expected. The trash talk was hilarious and the players started watching high-level games. There is no substitution for players watching the game being played properly by high level players. (For those who complain about not being able to afford Fox Soccer Channel, Gol TV, and Setanta or those who want to see more games that are not available on those channels, tell them to visit myp2p.eu then click on live sports and then on football).
