I'll play devil's advocate.
Did you watch the video? I saw it today on CNN and watched it before going to work. I am just seeing your thread now.
The kid is amazing. He is talent beyond his years. I think it is good that someone is grabbing him and nurturing him.
If the kid was a prodigy with a violin and a university professor picked him up to make sure his talent was watched over and protected, no one would care.
The only difference: soccer pays more than music.
Keep in mind: the odds of him ever playing professional soccer are still remote. If M UTD drafts 40 10-yr olds a year, they sign only a small percentage of them.
Let the kid play and have the opportunity to be great. If M UTD makes $ and the kid makes $, what does it matter? As long as he is enjoying becoming the best he can be with his natural talent.
