There are a lot of coaches that remember the rules when they played and don't follow the changes over the years. If referees could explain a rule as, "I know it used to be the way you are thinking, but it changed and I made the right call." Contrary to what referees and referee coordinators like the...

That being said, it is the parents making these decisions. And looking at the parents involved, non are more whacked out than those Austin Dad's! Poor kids!

SEMnHockeyNut: A known fact LHS recruits players for hockey. 8th Grader is further evidence of interference (recruiting) by the coaching staff. But Mayo's situation is similar. 3 Austin kids driving to Rochester every day and 1 Swede have all of the goals for Mayo, minus 1 or 2? Lourdes would be awf...

River Heights is a combination of what associations? I thought it is South St. Paul and Inver Grove Heights? Are there other areas included? What about Sibley Area? Thought is was West St. Paul? Other associations included? I find it odd that the Director of District 8, and his side kick are from SS...

I think its Austin's best players were developed in Kasson and are now playing for Mayo? These boys didn't choose their fathers.

The better question is how many Bantam eligible players playing Varsity? Holding your March baby out of school doesn't count.

Every association should have the freedom to do what they feel is best for their association. Some thinking winning is more important than placing their kids at the right level for their abilities. I am not aware of another association fielding more than 1 A team other than Rochester and Lakeville. ...

I really like the idea! I did not think the waiver issue could be so political or volitile, but I do see the potential. Much better than a Tier 1 scenario.

non-profit doesn't mean to lose money. I think playing in a summer AAA tournament that collects $700 per game is making a profit. Winter association tournaments that cost $500 are also making a profit. AAA must be better cuz it costs more

JoltDelivered: You are very wise and obviously speak from experience. I get the feeling several of these posters have yet to reach age 40 and they are talking about their first born child. As you send your 2nd and 3rd kid through, things become clear. Please continue posting the sanity checks Jolt!

snowedin: It seems hard to argue with you. If I understand your position, you think the only way for the top elite players to get better is to practice, play with and against teams that have a very narrow range of ability levels. In other words, you think a team with 3 1st lines is better developmen...

The Maher mouthguard advertisement admits the mouthguard protects against a direct blow to the jaw. Does nothing to slow down the brain from crashing into the skull on a hit to the head. Mouthguards are extremely overrated for concussion protection in hockey. But I do love the refs that are on a cru...

The point I was making is the inconsistency of the calls because the ref wants to inject himself in the outcome of the game. Some referees don't want to make the CFB call for the 2-10 results in the loss of the FPP. So blatant checks from behind are called cross-check, boarding, roughing, etc. Other...

A couple things I've noticed over the years, MN Hockey mandated STOP signs on jerseys? For what? If they truly believe checking from behind is that bad, should be 5 minute major. Match penalty if determined to be intentional vs. incidental. Possibly allow 2 minute for incidental (no 10 minute added)...

Mr. Bo: If I am understanding you, your association has no rink? Your association does not field an "A" team. Your association does not play at the "B1" level, but chooses to play at the "B2" level? Would seem any "A" level or even "B1" level player would be an easy candidate for a waiver to a neigh...

pretty obvious shuttheuckup is a LHA board member. He obviously know the poster as KJ. I will assume everyone knows shut up, though not by his "other moniker"?

Most board decisions are not what the appear. But your response shows it probably is true.
