Does a great job of making his website look reputable. I guess its the extent of having your kids name in the local news paper.
It's all P.R. to get to the next level. Cox knows it and he's giving parents the avenue to exploit the need...and maybe make a little scratch on the side. Be on the right team, preferably on a team with a few NHL offspring, get to the right tournaments, meet the right coaches, get the write-ups, get the mentions and before you know it the kid is the 'it player.'
No check with skills session wonder how many he even watched. Seems like he talked about the kids on the same team he saw
He's dumber than me!!
Ouch somebody's kid didn't get mentioned.
Someone is butthurt that an 06 got a mention over their 20 year old !
No dog in the fight here but thanks 06 dad you toolbag lol
Coxie was a high school JV hockey player. His dream was crushed by high school coach at a young age. He turned to writing career and publishes PR crap on every area coaches kid or former hockey guy's kid. It is really sick and everything that is wrong with hockey in Mass. It is a good old boys network with old men calling in favors to scouts, coaches and coxie for their sons.
I have never read a critique ever on that website. I dont know the man but there are plenty of people out there who give their opinion. It is just that though, an opinion. Informed? expert? unbiased? probably none of these but I assume he is able to make a living doing it. If coaches cared what he thought, he would be a scout or gm. He just has the balls to but himself out there and we are the ones who give him a venue. If no one paid or visited his site, my guess is he would be pumping gas, talking about the good old days.
Oh facts are so fun. Could he maybe be the former director? Owning a piece of a good or bad hockey organization just means you had some money to do so. I dont think that makes you an authority on hockey or even the guy picking the players.
If your looking for the connection.
