Happy Monday everyone! I hope you guys are all enjoying the playoffs and looking forward to the off season.
This week we got us another batch of crazy shit. Some of this stuff is priceless. This first one though really takes the top prize for stupidity….
Its not junior hockey when your team owner is so freaking stupid he hits “REPLY ALL” on an email that was copied to The Junior Hockey News! He then proceeds to explain how he is going to deliberately violate the USA Hockey Player Bill of Rights and keep the pro-rated refund that is due to you!
Nothing says quality organization more than when you are owed a refund under the rules and the team tells you that its not coming. Just another example of why you should not pay too far in advance to these donkey’s!
Its not junior hockey when you put up 8 points in one game against a team with 10 skaters and you think you are some kind of johnny all star because of it. Get a clue dumb ass, not one scout gives a shit about those points.
Its not junior hockey when teams with losing records are making the playoffs. Teams like the NA3HL’s Wausau River Wolves going 10-34-1, or the Evansville Jr Thunderbolts going 8-38-1, or the Oswego Stampede going 15-28-3.
Seriously? This is supposed to be a respectable level of hockey? The path to a higher level? More like a freakin road to financial ruin if you ask me. Spend the tuition money on ACHA hockey kids cause this stuff is bullshit!
Its not junior hockey when a junior team tells you to skip a camp that you have already paid for in order to attend their “pre draft” camp. That is an example of a team that is so desperate for money and/or players that they will say and do anything to get it. These teams cant be trusted.
Its not junior hockey when a Tier III team is asking you to sign a contract for next year before this season is even over. That’s just a team looking for your money.
Finally, its not junior hockey when on your last road trip all players are asked to “pitch in” money to pay for the team hotels and meals because the team is out of money. Yet the Owner pulls into the arena parking lot driving a brand new BMW.
