The notion is beyond ridiculous and proves your argument throws common sense out the window.
Russia's numbers are extremely underreported....even if it's only the U10 kids not being counted.
The thing with seniors is that there is a much higher chance that most of them aren't registered with any organization. There are boat loads of seniors who just play pickup for fun, certainly with no coaches required and often even without refs. Because kids require coaching and supervision there is a much higher chance that they will be registered in some sort of organized program. Sorry, you can call me ridiculous all you want, but it really just makes you look desperate.
