Trialists come and go all the time. There always seems to be room for them. Do you have any source to support your contention?

There's a major difference between hosting a couple of trialists in June and bringing in trialists during preseason when there are already a billion players from USL/draft/academy in camp. You're asking me to source... what? Basic math? There are a limited number of coaches and a limited number of people participating in a drill/scrimmage/game at one time. The more players you have, the more you have to spread around opportunity and the more players coaches have to pay attention to. There's a reason teams in all sports cut players as preseason goes on. It's because the coaching staff wants to narrow their focus to a limited group of players, and it's a lot easier for 5 coaches to analyze 24 than 40 players.

The harm is that you can only have a finite number of players in camp. I'd much rather that spot go to someone we have more confidence in. Let's find the next Grella or Kemar Lawrence.


The guy hasnt played a full season in years. Too injury prone. He would have to be on a vet minimum to take Baah seriously.
