Good Monday morning boys and girls! I hope everyone had as good a weekend as I did. I saw some awesome hockey out east on Friday and Saturday. A lot of under rated and unknown players who could become pretty well known this year.
So anyway, the last few weeks I have been getting a lot of information on a scam taking place in Canada with some wannabe family advisors or agents. That’s right a scam. I said it because what they are selling is complete bullshit.
So, you got a bunch of GMHL players paying these “advisors” fee’s that can go as high as $12,000.00 bucks. That’s right, 12 grand, and that’s on top of what they are paying the team to play.
So the deal goes that if they pay the money, the advisor will get them to play in Europe. But they have to pay the advisor to prove they can be on their own in Europe. So the kids pay the money and then they go to Europe and either play for free until they are cut, or they don’t get anything.
Get a clue kids! Pro hockey is being paid to play! You don’t pay to play pro hockey! Are you people really that stupid to go for this?
If you are paying a ton of money to some advisor who says you need to pay for your first year in European pro hockey, you are an idiot! Look in the mirror right now and repeat 1000 times, “I am the dumbest person on earth!”.
Just a hint, if you get paid to build houses, you’re a professional builder. If you get paid to cook, you’re a professional cook. If you get paid to play hockey, you’re a professional player. Professional players do not pay to play hockey!
Oh, yeah, in case all you scammers out there who are now concerned we are going to expose you, you should be concerned. Because once I am done investigating all you scumbags, I am going to publish the list of you guys and your pictures.
Its bad enough players and parents are paying to play, but its down right disgusting for anyone to try to capitalize on their dreams with outright lies!
Watch out for this scam near you. We are now starting to get reports that it is happening to European players looking to play pro in the United States.
If you’re a player or parent getting scammed like this, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
