Heard a rumor that the new NCDC league teams plan to charge $$$ fines for any rostered player that leaves during the season to play for a better team. This can't be real.
1. what if a player has an opportunity to move up in quality of play from NCDC - and from the NCDC there is plenty of room for that.
2. what if the NCDC league doesn't live up to its hype?
3. what if an NCDC team just can't compete?
4. what if the coach is an a hole?
If the rumor is true, it doesnt say much for confidence in this latest experimental league.
The quality of the league and its teams is what should keep players from leaving for better opportunities, not threats of charging players thousands in fines.
Hahahahaha this is great. This ought to go over well with NCAA coaches who want to see all their "top recruits " play in the best competition. Now that bills are coming in they realize the business model will not work and the hockey will continue to be Tier 3.
