But when the forfeit posted on the last day of season does in fact affect a teams percentage.... Fair? Or not?
It did affect team standings.
It affected the kid that wants to leave the team. How does a coach keep a kid that doesn't want to play for him.. total loser
You have a few options.
1) you could get a release. I'm assuming you couldn't get that cuz you're on here whining about it.
2) you could play for a E9/BHL team or town. I hear the Saints are looking for kids.
3) you could suck it up.
This is a teachable moment.You can teach your child that some times life just isn't fair and you don't always get what you want
yes the Saints are looking for players and since they are losing 2 kids to the Caps, i am sure it is not your kids spot, they will gladly take back some in trade!
It's funny how matt smith came into the caps. He had parents meeting and said anyone not happy I will be glad to release them. How things have changed in 2 years. He is so afraid of losing players. He keeps kid's that want to leave at all levels.
If that is true that he forfeited a game to alter their percentage to keep kids from leaving then someone should just make a phone call....to USA hockey.... I'm sure they are familiar with him.....
It's sad that caps are that desperate to keep kids.
I was at a parents meeting when MS first came to Caps. He said he didn't want people in organization that didn't want to be there. He would grant releases to anyone not happy. Why don't you ask him about that meeting. See if he remembers.
A 1-0 loss on the last day of the season was to avoid driving to Merrimack to make an afternoon game during the week to get the score into the Fed.
You really think the forfeit was to keep a kid on the team?
Let's see, drive an hour or more in rush-hour traffic to make a game in North Andover or save the drive and take a loss that had no impact on the final standings for the Caps...
After all the F-- bombs last night at practice between the owner of caps and the commissioner -- one phone call to USA will surely get kid released. Kid should be scared to play on that team. I know I would be.
Sgt. Hulka? Maybe he was hungry and in a bad mood.
I always told my son's coaches, "Don't worry about your use of foul language, I assure you he's already heard everything there is to hear from his mother."
O.K. I'll grant you that. Good decision by you. You know your kid and it wasn't for him so move on. But no need to trash the guy (if we're talking about the same guy) because others (including myself) have had good experiences for the most part and my kid went on to be a pretty good player partially because of him. Then again he didn't play for him until he was 10 and I will say the guys size does intimidate a lot of little kids.
If two teachers were throwing F- bombs at each other in a classroom what would happen. Parents would be outraged. Buts its ok for the commissioner of the league and the owner of the caps to throw F.. bombs at each other during a practice.
The 06 Caps have more important things to worry about
like what summer vacation
