Someone call the ambulance! Oh, never mind, I got this covered. Ha Ha Ha Its shaping up to be one hell of a week here for the Angel of Death. Hell of a week…..get it? Ha Ha Ha
So guess what kids, it looks like the team folding or going “dormant” claims aren’t just for Tier III this year. Yep, we got us one genuine Junior B franchise going dark this year. While it is located in the United States it does impact some Canadian teams.
Allow me to introduce our next victim, the long suffering Buffalo Regals are finally going to be taken off life support. The official statement was short and sweet;
“Due to unforeseen circumstances the Buffalo Regals of the Golden Horseshoe Conference have requested a 1 (one) year leave of absence from play in the GOJHL for the 2014-2015 season. The Ontario Hockey Association is expected to have a decision by mid week. The Regals plan to return to the league in 2015-16.”
Ummmmmmm yeah so, you want to come back in 2015 you say? Do you think you can improve on the 4 win season in 2013-2014, or the 1 win season in 2012-2013, or how about the stellar 8 win season of 2011-2012? Yep, taking a year off will make recruiting for this train wreck that much easier I am sure!
Considering you haven’t had a winning record in a DECADE, everyone is shocked you made it this far. But hey, who is anyone to judge right? I mean playing second fiddle to the Jr. Sabres cant be easy, in fact its really not a good idea to begin with.
But I really wonder what those “unforeseen circumstances” might be. No coach, no players, no winning seasons in recent memory or a mixture of all of the above? Then again, if you don’t have any players, that’s really not something you couldn’t see coming is it?
Thanks for making the seven other members have to re-do their schedules though, I am sure that goes over well at the end of August. I am sure they wont think about that at all if you try to come back next year.
I am sure the league wont consider how much you embarrassed them with this late retreat either when you had all summer to do the right thing. Nahhhhhh that would never happen.
Hey kids stay tuned, we got bodies piling up at the door. Look for more special reports soon!
