View Full Version : best player in the US

There are a lot to chose from. The best Mike Ceoli is the top to bottom best roller player in the US today followed by Taj Melson, Dan Hendrickson and a hand full of others. I say get out of Cally and really look at the players that are out there. Some of you watch 1 tourney a year and you have all the answers. Even worse you hear about players and take it as truth. The Yoders are good so is Ziggy. Rice also a prime time player. The Fins kicked the crap out of the US because of speed and quickness.

Melson is bad ass...Cioli..guess i have to watch him a bit more..until the Yoder's win a title..i mean..they even blew that Div-1 game at the Cooler a couple years back..they are 2nd tier elite players..that last RHI title ...well...not the same level

The D 1 level is under rated a lot of those kids can play and from what I saw this year did play and played well. There will be some changes next year in the Pro division. The Old guys keep trying to put the young ones down to hold on to there spots. Its time for a change. The Yoders dont win because they surround themselves with average talent and very few people want to play with them more than 1 year.

Well i think they were winning like 4-0 or so at one point and had guys like Matt Denton, Bielstein ,Daleo to boot if memory serves.
Pro is always changing, the new kids coming up are scary!!

Matt Denton please average at best. I dont think we will see to much of him in the future. JP played 1 time and now is with Tour West. Kenny didnt go back and played for Pro Joy this year. If you want to break the Cats down lets pick the right players. Jay Mazer a lifer and a very weak Dan Costanza. The best player against the worst teams and most of the time he cant even make through a tournament without an injury. Winning in round robin is only to make the playoffs after that the real boys win. We can continue on a team by team break down if you like strengths weaknesses. We can even get into player reviews. Im not sitting behind the computer throwing out half backed comments. Ive been in this game a very long time perhaps longer than most. I play, coach and organize.

I was agreeing with you..but I felt in '99 or whatever it was when they winning the Div 1 game up 4 goals or so..that they should have closed it out..
I'm not a Mudcats fan don't worry about it..

Sorry I didnt mean to sound off. The one thing I do respect about the cats is that they stick together. And a lot of them have been playing together for a long time. There was a team out of Minnesota like that to Ultra Wheels or Tour I cant remember. Take care

I liked your comment about the Finnish players. I played in the Finnish SM-Liiga this past summer with 4 of the guys that on their world championship team and played against the others. I was in shock my first couple of games with how fast and how terrific their hands are. We are behind a little.
