    I just talked to him on the phone, I sounded zero impressed, and simply told him it's time to fly home and get back to work
    I'm giddy here, but absolutely grounding this kid any chance I get.
    Send him to billet with me to finish our season out on our way to Nationals !! I'll pay for everything ! Hurry up, we only have 2 days to roster him !

    In another move that'll make you shake your head about parents...there is an '03 kid in our organ-i-zation who is a pretty solid player but he has taken 8 two and 10's over the first half of the season for checking from behind. On top of that he has three other 10 minute misconducts for different infractions. The '03 coach suspended this kid, after the 8th checking from behind penalty, prior to the Christmas break for one practice and two games. The coach's reasoning is that this kid is clearly not getting the message, is hurting the team with his constant penalties, and he is actually afraid that this kid might seriously hurt someone and thus reflect poorly on him (as the coach) and the organization as a whole. The kid's response? He quit the team. And his parents were on board with his quitting b/c they felt that the suspension was too harsh. And his father was a parent helping out as an assistant coaching the team and knew first hand how much his son's penalties were hurting the team. Just makes me wonder where people are coming from nowadays.

    With knowing very little about this situation, sounds like this kid might not be suited for sports. He's u14 now (I also have 03's), and should be able to figure that out by now.

    And it's becoming more common to find parents unwilling to hold their kids accountable.

    It always scared me that when my son played when that happened and lucky his it didn't happen often. The hit from behind always made me nervous when my son played.

    By far the most dangerous thing that I see in hockey. Very dangerous, scary, collision.

    He was 3rd in scoring in tourney, two kids ahead of him are generation prodigy's from Ontario and considered the "next" ones.


    He just wrapped up the Pat Quinn Classic this morning, (AAA).
    He lead his team to championship win, and was awarded tourney MVP. I'm hearing he pretty much dominated.
    Last years MVP of the tourney is considered one of the top American prospects in a few birth years, and the leading scorer was is that Japanese kid all over youtube.
    Why don't you just say his name - it's pretty easy to figure out who you're talking about lol

    Isn't that a sad testament to our society? Can you imagine your parents having that mentality? My parents certainly didn't.

    Another one: A kid on my team told a fellow parent that if he didn't score a goal in our last game his dad was taking away his iPhone. WTF is that?

    I'm from a little older generation in regards to my parents.
    I believe my dad would be around 86 if still alive. Much different parenting.

    If we got wind of that as a staff, kid would be pasted to the bench. Don't care who it is.

    You guys are in the USPHL now, so that opens the door for him to go anywhere in the AY. Do you know who he's playing for?

    I asked. The coach didn't know. The family is from the Brick area. I would think the Titans would be the closest option but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

    Right, but you said AY so I was only thinking of teams that are playing in the AY. I think Brick, Red Bank or the Wildcats probably make more sense though.

    Right. Titans bantam teams stink though, and they don't have an 03 squad at T1

    Really? That seems strange. I think they are going to struggle next year with all the legal issues they are having and the limited ice time available.

    Not that I ever want to find myself in this position but it must be difficult joining a new team at this stage of the season...especially for older kids.

    Rosters lock on 12/31. You need a full release and a special exemption from the league.
