" I know a bunch of Tier 1 kids who cant make their town A team "
We've all seen it. Townies get all worked up over the kid who has played elsewhere, select kid's dad isn't on the B.O.D., kid's dad isn't a Beer League Hero with the Townie 'coaches,' there is animosity toward the kid because he's good enough for the very prestigious 'A Team' but to spite the kid they all laugh and place him on the B team where some of the kids should be skating with chairs and then when the kid packs up his bag and moves onto a good select team never to come back the locals all bad mouth the kid and the kid's family. . .
