The Death Pool – Time To Give Thanks


Hey kids, it’s almost Thanksgiving.  All that turkey, and pie will soon be laid out on the table.  Players will be heading home for the break and parents will just be happy to see their kids.

So what are you thankful for?

Are you thankful that you are not on one of the many too bad to tolerate Tier III teams?  This Death Pool report is proudly sponsored by the many Western States Hockey League teams that should simply go away.  But hey, some of the other middle of the pack teams are thankful youre around otherwise they would be at the bottom of the barrel! HA HA HA  I would like to congratulate New Mexico for winning its first couple of games.  Yes sir kids, one trade for a players that wasnt producing on another team and he magically becomes a top forward in the league.  Genius coaching, or is the league just that weak?  Ummmmmm yeah, well about those genius coaches…….

Maybe your thankful for being in such a great organization that allows you the opportunity to move from one team to another without having to league home?  Oh hell yeah kids, it’s the Tier III hockey bait and switch show.  We know who we are talking about, and so do you.  But hey if all you suckers keep going for the high-priced song and dance, then you get what you pay for.  I will be thankful when USA Hockey finally steps in and says there is no such thing as top-level, mid level and bottom level Tier III teams?  Oh snap……..Is that hell freezing over?

Isn’t Tier III supposed to be Tier III? Dont they all have the opportunity to play for the USAH National Championship?  Yep, that’s what I thought.  But hey this whole “tier” concept is working out just fine!  Who threw the dart at the board to make up that rule change a few years ago?

Players should be thankful for additional Tier II opportunity coming their way next season.  Yep, there is a bunch of expansion talk, and word is that as many as six expansion franchises, or re-activation of dormant franchises are in the works!  Tier III owners should be thankful if these teams don’t set up shop in your back yards.   HA HA HA  Oh snap, maybe I should have just said some Tier III teams may be thankful these new Tier II teams come in and put them out of their misery!  More work for Death!

But hey kids, Death has to run, some teams called the Revolution are on life support.  Looks like someone may be tripping over the plug pretty soon!
