Second, you seem to have appointed yourself judge, jury and executioner in the infamous Mater Dei Soul-Selling Case. If you have all the answers and have already reached your verdict, why did you bother posting the title of this thread as a question?
Third, this didn't start with Servite and Troy Thomas. It started about five years before that when another current Trinity League school began bringing in large numbers of transfers with the enticement of large tuition "discounts", van-pools and online classes.
And fourth, you single out Mater Dei for your soul-selling invective for some interesting reasons. I can assure you all six teams in the league are actively marketing themselves and recruiting talent. Yet you dismiss St. John Bosco because you feel they don't have a soul to begin with. And you dismiss the other four league teams because despite their best efforts at selling their souls, they don't seem to have as many takers. So by your process of elimination, only Mater Dei can be guilty because (a) unlike Bosco, they have a soul, (b) they are trying to sell it, and (c) more families than at the other four schools are interested in the product. I think I got it.
And you seem to think Mater Dei is in a bad area just because it's Hispanic? Wow!

It appears, at times, like you're pounding a round peg through a square hole in an ill-fated attempt to apologize for MD rather than simply admitting its faults.
Similar to cruiser, you don't counter my points. Rather, you argue other items in what must be construed only as a clear acknowledgement that the changes I noted are in fact true.
Although, as we've already established, you and cruiser appear to agree with me that MD has in fact deviated from their culture in an attempt to regain long-lost winning glory.
Fair enough - but no other schools did it to the degree of MD and Bosco.
Yes, Bosco has no soul. Is there any question?
None of the other schools are willing to compromise their values to the same degree.
P.S.S.: I never said it's a bad area for ethnic reasons. I said it was a bad area for gang reasons.
