Good Monday morning boys and girls. Hope everyone had as good a weekend as I did. Hell yeah, I went to the Bauer showcase in Chicago and saw a ton of good players who will be playing junior hockey in the next few years. Saw some real high end kids that you could tell right away they were going to very high levels in the future. Good stuff!
Its amazing though, the things people will talk about in public. I mean seriously, the shit people will say when anyone is standing around is amazing! Parents talking smack about coaches, coaches talking about hard to handle parents, and league staff talking about plans for next year. Crazy. Ummmmmmm anyone ever hear the phrase that “loose lips sink ships”?
So, to all you dumb asses that were talking about your leagues expansion plans for the 2016 season, I salute and thank you for your ignorance!
That’s right kids, there is more pay to play expansion on the way in 2016. Leagues cant get enough of those expansion franchise fee’s can they?! Nope, no one is doing this out of greed, its all for the kids! Cough, cough.
With the expansion application deadline for USA Hockey being November 15th, several applications are expected to be submitted. Hockey Canada will also be expecting some applications in the next month or so, and lets not forget the good old WSHL and GMHL who simply answer to no one when it comes to expansion. Yep, you guessed it, everyone is looking to add more teams.
Ummmmmm how about a little review there boys?
Yeah, you see in 2014 we had close to 20 teams fold, ummmmmm yeah and in 2015 we have had about 20 teams fold and another dozen or so should be folded because they are playing with unsafe roster numbers or are just so bad they are embarrassing!
That’s right, when you cant win a game and cant be competitive, your not a junior hockey team. You’re a joke!
When you’re a league that wont implement quality control measures, you’re a joke too!
When you’re a parent who keeps on forking over cash to support these joke’s, what do you think you are? Well, those people cashing your checks call you “meal tickets”, and “suckers”.
But hey, why save the ten grand a year your spending on junior hockey that should be going to pay for college right? I mean shit, that money just grows on tree’s right?
Yep, your kid is going to play NCAA hockey alright! The coach said so! Ha Ha Ha Yep, the same coach who assembled the team getting pumped every night said so! Priceless!
Keep an eye out for new teams filling arenas near you in 2016! While I sure there will be some good ones, no sarcasm there, we will also get our usual group of pretenders. Yep, idiots with a check book who think they can make money on pay to play hockey. They are all over the place.
Thank god for you suckers though, and thank god for the leagues who keep on wanting to expand. Without you, I wouldn’t have much to do!
