Re: Why Are Programs Like Top Gun and The Falcons, Generally Speaking, Always Bad?
I think TG is hurt by having other, more reputable, programs nearby, so their numbers suffer. And NEF suffers from being out west where there are fewer people...and they play in a tough league. Rifles seem to compete fine in the E9, I bet most Falcons teams would too.
Agreed about Top Gun - they give some kids exposure, but if the player is decent the kids and parents realize the org as a whole is borderline town hockey with poor management and coaches and they end up going to Warriors, Islanders, etc.
As another poster said the Ice Center is going to sh*t as well.
