Good idea but.....

See, many of the people on these boards have never played a game of hockey in their lives. They are self proclaimed know it alls because they watch the sport, pay for the sport, and criticize kids who play the sport.

Re: Good idea but.....

Which can be said for everyone calling in to sports talk radio, as well as 90% of the hosts.

The appeal is, the guy in the radio is the same fat slob sitting on the bar stool in the sports bar spouting the same ****. So, you can relate, and you can agree. So, you keep listening.

It was great hearing them talk about Ryan Donato this week. They have NO idea why he was considered the most expendable of the young players.

Great idea...

It shows parents the natural progression of hockey. Youth, high school, club hockey in college and beer league. “All roads lead to the beer league’

Also, look at the amount of dboard posts as the ages get older: the Youth dboard has the most posts because everyone believes their bender is special...then the posts diminish in the HS and the Junior dboards as reality settles in.

The good news is their benders will eventually be recruited...but older dudes looking to fill their beer league teams...rookies bring the 30 pack!

The principal driver is fewer players, not fewer delusional parents. Something like 85% of youth hockey players are no longer in the sport by HS. The parents of the remaining 15% are still just as delusional, on average.

Re: Great idea...

Put me down for one long sleeve 'Beer League Beatdown' Who doesn't like that?

Re: Good idea but.....

This is a great idea. We now have a forum to reference when someone with DPD starts talking about their bender's future.
