"In the land of giants, small-school Mahtomedi celebrates its oft-overlooked achievements"
Mahtomedi a 1,100 student Class A HS in the upper-class east side Twin Cities metro area of 3.6 million.
Mahtomedi is almost double the size of Hermantown and in a much larger, wealthier community.
Hibbing/Virginia and maybe even Denfeld, if it was in 7A you would never get by it.
Just pointing out your next target after HT gets out of your way.
Class A is bigger than 7A on the depressed range.
By the way, A Class A school is determined by the size of the SCHOOL, not the wealth or size of the City/Suburb/Town that it is in.
If you don't like it talk to the MNSHSL and get it changed.
Please make sure to contact an angry Mahtomedi defender and pass along your debate "strategies" My favorites are:
-Lie and tell everyone that your school doesn't allow open enrollment.
-Call outstate programs "crappy" because they can't beat a suburban team like your Hawks.
-Make vicious personal attacks, complete with cursing, so threads you don't like will be locked.
-Its okay to rip on metro privates for dominating in A, but get super angry when others rip on your metro area school for doing the exact same.
-Deny claims of recruiting, even when the claim has been published publicly by your youth program.
As an additional training tool, make sure to give them a copy of "Pekyman's Greatest Hits:The STA Years", which includes the following actual posts of yours:
-"STA beats #2 ranked AA HM 2-1. Bet they wish they could go to AA this year."
-"I for one am waiting patiently for HSHW’s “Rags to Riches” plan.This plan will enable any small community hockey program to be transformed into an elite small community program in a short order.With this plan, small community teams will quickly be able to ramp up their programs and compete with the AA big boys as STA did."
-"How about these 2 classy wins; they were not even section games not that matters: Feb 9: STA over 4A-Simley 13-1 Feb 12: STA over 2A-Richfield 16-0 I understand they needed to get over their 4-4 tie with Tartan but... Imo, classy teams figure out how to keep it to a 10 or under goal differential."
-"I heard that the kid who scored the GWG came from WISCONSIN. Is that actually true?" (In reference to Tommy Novak)
-"HSHW, arguing that a private school is on the same level playing field as a Class A public school is beyond comprehension. You would have a better shot at trying to convince people that the sky is not blue. I know you need to do it so that you can feel proud of what your team has accomplished."
-" STA had 9 players in the Elite League and the rest in Elite D, more than any other program A or AA. Move up you sandbagging trophy chasing pusses."
Armed with your angry, uber-hypocritical techniques, any Mahtomedi fan will be fully prepared to defend themselves against myself and the other whiners who support "crappy" small-town programs.
