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.
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 shows parents the natural progression of hockey. Youth, high school, club hockey in college and beer league. “All roads lead to the beer league’
Put me down for one long sleeve 'Beer League Beatdown' Who doesn't like that?
This is a great idea. We now have a forum to reference when someone with DPD starts talking about their bender's future.
