All Paid Advisors Suck

I have staunchly defended advisors here. I felt that a need exists for paid advisors to help parents to navigate through the lies and deceit that is Midget and Junior hockey. I argued that any dad that thinks he knows enough to protect their kid from the charlatans is over-estimating their own capabilities.

I was wrong.

I thought, just like any professional service, there are good people and bad people.

I was wrong.

Keep your money in your pocket. Assume whoever you are dealing with on the team side is a lying sack of ****, and hope you found the one in 100 that isn’t.

Agree 100%. Trolls.

Yeah, I've been called the Purple Unicorn in my job, too. They do exist, just hard to find, and more people get burned trying than are successful.

I will also say that, odds are, your kid probably doesn't really need one. Mine did, and in the end it turned out he sent him to a scumbag coach. Then when the coach eventually showed his colors, didn't do squat.

I don't know, this is a crazy year, any assistance from a reputable source is welcome.

This has been an insane year. Next year probably won't be much better.
