Jackson was on the bench last game. The Brek criticism is silly. Remember that when Schellas came to Dallas, Brek was recovering from a torn meniscus he had suffered towards the end of the previous season. [Schellas didn't draft Brek and wasn't his coach in 2008 when Brek didn't see the field] Then as a 19 year old, Schellas gave him 19 games. In 2010 and 2011 it was 25 and 31 games. Schellas has benched him on a couple of occassions for being a hotheaded dolt. It's been tough love a lot. Schellas drafted American guys out of the NCAAs like George John, Matt Hedges, Zach Loyd, etc. and immediately gave them chances. I just don't see why Hyndman should get criticized more than other coaches in this discussion regarding young players. If the Galaxy bring in Buddle, Keane, and other veteran forwards.............I don't see long discussions about how they're not giving opportunities to Jack McBean. Or maybe I'm missing them? Schellas Hyndman has given Jonathan Top a hell of a lot more gametime than Chicago has given to Kellen Gulley. When does Victor Pineda ever see the field? I'm just defensive about it because FCD is one of the few US-based clubs that has taken the homegrown initiative seriously, and they're the ones getting blasted. FCD is one of the few clubs routinely signing teenagers, while others are signing mediocre NCAA players they never use like Matt Lampson. Nobody criticizes Sigi Schmid for not using his teenage homegrowns more..........because he and the Sounders haven't bothered to sign any!!! Yallop can't be criticized, because San Jose doesn't sign any! Anyway, I'm done talking about it now. If you guys want to criticize Schellas Hyndman for not using the kids that he is in fact actually using.....................go for it.
