Re: Satire Guy Where are you?
I think the guy who wrote the entertaining satire about the Cyber sale is spot on. It was Funny but informative.
It seems no one has been told anything! I know I haven't been told, "BECAUSE I AM SO IMPORTANT". All rumors and speculation. I hope it does not happen!! Those two gentlemen have created a Hockey Legacy for themselves on the Cape.
Sure they are not as big as other programs and they don't draw from as large of an area as others. They don't have the big TROPHY cases in the lobby or Flags hanging everywhere. Look at us, look at us. Small sometimes is good.
They provide good development hockey for kids, in a positive environment. As a parent I would hate to see them sell, but I have no control over it. But, if I did I would like it to be to an individual/s who have less skeletons and baggage!! I know a lot of it is DBoard generated, but it seems they have rubbed many people the wrong way. Many have a ax to grind, but that many?
You people caught up in your Alphabet soup of leagues, we play in the XJ9/12 league and we are better. Really!!! The ice is the same "it is slippery". Sure some kids are at higher levels. You know that they do grow!! Some grow in a health environment and some in a toxic one. After awhile the poor kid in the toxic environment grows tired if it and most often just quits. Our environment was great until toxic people and rumors started.
We will see. If this sale/merger does happen, please leave your drama outside the rink.
Reading on that Total Cape Cod Athletics group's website all the things they are promising on having. I understand that they have not even broken ground on anything. What are these guys selling. Everyone knows if you build a shed on Cape Cod you know how long it takes. The hoops you must jump through. It is not happening this year or the next. It maybe well into three years.
I also understand their is a former NFL coach involved in the project. I wonder if he has done his homework concerning his other partners and there connections or lack of connections. I think there is already 8.5 sheets of ice on the Cape. What do these two hockey guys bring to the table. Reading these posts it is all about this WN. Looking for a place for his son to play.
That looks like and expensive backyard rink. Or does he think this is a way into the NHL? It is ultimately the player. not the coaches, facility or parent..
How many rink owners or organization owners' kids actually make the NHL/AHL.
Listening to many of the NHL player's stories, they started in backyards, pond, bogs and driveways. Not my Dad owned a rink or an organization. Do you think that poor kid gets pressured?
Again if everything you hear about this WN person is true. The project won't get done. The NFL Coach may find out what this guy is about. The Cape building individuals may make it impossible of them to build. Or "they may built it and no one will come"
Hang in there parents. Those people who are for it good luck. If you don't want it there are 8.5 other sheets on the Cape an many more else where. It may not be what you want to hear. If you don't give them your money it is hard to pay the bills. They may have deep pocket but eventually the money runs out if people do not by the product. Well unless it is a Town/State or Federally run venture then we all pay. But until it happens continue to "Carry On".
Most bandits teams / players are playing at a level that is to high for them, including the 04 team (see record / watch them play). Losing every game isn't good for any player no matter his or her age.
Again this Board it for individual's opinions. An that is yours.
Lets not create problems between these two organizations.
Parents make decisions for their children, what ever they are bases on.
I know players on both teams, each team has good ATHLETES in many different sports. They all seem too real excel at hockey.
If they all could stay at home and play together on the Cape that would be great. It would make it much easier for those that do chose to travel.
If kids and parents want to return they should be welcomed. If people want to leave again that is their choice.
I see that many of the posts are tired of hearing or seeing the posts on this topic. Many are just feeding the fire. Poking fun at the region and attempting to create animosity between the organizations.
Organizations after ever season have tryouts. Have tryouts, kids from other select teams and town programs tryout every year. Make the teams based on the kids abilities. Skills not on who's father coaches or knows someone (friendships). I know I am looking through rose colored glasses on that.
Coaching, I respect that some parents and coaches may have played at some higher levels of hockey than many of us. That is great, but that may not always be the best fit in some circumstances. Some individuals have different delivery systems and attitude with kids. Some may not know how to relate or Coach a Pre-teen/Teen age group.
I have gone on to far. It all seems both organizations have some things in common. They each love their Kids and Hockey. Those are the good things.
We all know and have read about the bad things over and over the last few weeks. If there were some way that those problems could be removed could we get past these negative posts?
Eventually it is only between two people and a group of investors.
We should now surrender the DBoard to those other life uttering hockey issues. Ha Ha.
Kids from the '04 Hurricanes team couldn't make the '04 Bandits Team! Get a clue....it's two levels below
If you only have two wins and losing by an averaging of 3 goals per game, you are definitely not competing at two levels above!
Wow! Real sports nut are ya???? Kind of creepy the stats you've found. Sorry your kid got cut....from the '04 Bandits and '04 Hurricanes.....
And you would know because you played at???????
Wow your stupid. Because of what league a team is in you think they couldn't beat a team in a higher league. How ignorant. Do you know how the league thing works? How a team gets into a league? I won't bother even explaining it to dumb. You must also think if your kid is in EHF he is better than any given kid in any other league.
Much more entertaining reading WN stories than listening to these girls banter. How about we change back to the topic of the thread
YOU'RE not YOUR
I love the fact that people are basing their success or using the 04 BB as a barometer for talent ! lol
This is great !
You can't move to Teri 1 unless you play 70% of your games vs Elite teams. Both breakers and bandits voted hurricanes out of joining EHF 2 years in a row. The CANES would be a great addition to E9 ... the poster only said they could be BB not compete in top of EHF. No one in the hurricanes org thinks they belong in top half of EHF. Tried very hard to schedule games against any EHF teams to no avail. Offers to Pay for ice and refs and they won't. Just like EHF wont play top E9's ...egos get in the way of good competition. EHF especially the lower half would rather drag their kids all over country and Canada than lose or have a close game with a local team that is not in EHF... sad.
Bandits -v- Hurricanes at the 04 level is the equivalent of being on the honor roll at night school. Sure, you think you are doing great when compared to your equals, but in reality you are the bottom 20th percentile of your class !
Well he'll have something to do with them once he's running the show over the bridge instead of in Bridfewater. Good ridence and best of luck to all of you
I think people are not really aware of what his plans are, and I understand that due to all of the secrecy, lies, confusion, blatant lies, and smoke and mirrors.
But, first off there is not going to be any Hurricanes.....
His plan is to absorb the Hurricanes into his Cape Cod Total Athletics umbrella and all teams will fall under the "CCTA ______'s". There will be new name, new jerseys, new colors. He has a name picked out, jerseys and colors decided on !
The purchase of the Hurricanes was to have a place to call home until and if ever his new rink is built. SO... some of those "Hurricanes" teams may stay together under the new monicker, but most will want to leave once the new product is rolled out !
I'm no league snob, but averaging 1.2 goals per game against EHF Elite competition is a little different than 1.2 goals per game in the MPDHL. I'm sure there are kids on the 04 BB Elite that would be significant improvements to the 04 NEJH.
You know, the Tier 1 PW and Tier 2 PW rankings on MHR are on the same scale, so theoretically the BB are 6 goals better than NEJH. I've never seen the Hurricanes play, but does that sound about right?
Yes exactly, you are just reiterated my point that the 9 (maybe 10 next year) spots are NOT open depending on how a team does in the parity round. There are only a few spots open and you have to be in BHL to even vie for those few spots. The hurricanes as they are have 2 teams that have a good chance of making E9 and if additions come they may have 3 or 4. But we are aware of how it all works and that no one is guaranteed a spot...WN is not pulling the wool over anyone eyes...which was my point. Everyone knows to have a plan B and aware of the WN / TS situation... carry on
From Joyful!! This is a little Holiday satire concerning the facts about what is taking place. Sorry, I could not get the Frozen soundtrack going in the background "Let It Go". Here we go or Once upon a time.
As all the Who's in Whoville (Cape Cod/Hyannis/HYCC)were asleep there was a rumor of a big Black Friday Sale. It happened to start in early October when all the Team Whoville gear became 1/2 priced. The little elves inside the workshop started to disappear. Hermie was no longer at the rink for games or practices or in his workshop. Then the word that Thing 1 WN and Thing 2 TS started to appear, promoting their new workshop.
It continues a local Who named EN showed back up, he left Whoville a few Who years ago to go over that sometimes shiny bridge. Why did EN leave "Because no one around Whoville knew what they were doing"?? But, now the hero Who of Barnstable/Whoville is back running clinics for Team Whoville. Leaving the rest of the Whoville coaches asking "What in the Who is happening here?" Hermie and the other Mayor of Whoville aren't telling the Who's anything. EN Who and more Who's, who left are returning. Now the Who's who stayed know something is real up. Max has been seen warning the Who's in the village.
Continuing on the Holiday theme the Heat Miser WN and the Grinch TS still are battling with the Whoville Commision (C.C. and Town)over building their future home for "misfit toys". But they still have to scare the Who's. Hermie at the old workshop is getting mad that the Who's have caught on to the Cyber sale. Hermie, WN and TS all have to remember Bumbles Bounce and that's what may happen. Just like that stormy Christmas/"Holiday" evening there was a storm brewing, but Rudolph is not there to help. He has a lower body injury, on the IR for the remainder of the season.
The Who's are having a bad feeling about Christmas morning. Thing 1/Heat Miser WN and Thing 2/Grinch TS are still hanging around.
This Who does not want Coal or that steamy bag of brown stuff that WN and TS are pedaling.
Hopefully no Whoville parents or BB parents where hurt in the making of this satire. It seems that the BB parents/kids have been hurt enough. Unfortunately it seems the "Island of Misfit toys" is going to land on Cape Cod.
How about calling them and asking them?
Wait. Too many posts to scroll threw but didn't a Hurricane patent say every Hurricane parent has been informed and are fully aware of who WN and TS are and their new involvement in the Hurricanes? Guess that's not really the case then......
Someone better step up and say something. Whether it's the original owner or the new buyers. People are already looking elsewhere. Won't be long till everything that was "purchased" is gone.
He said ever familiy is aware of the "rumors" of a buy out and who the players are ...
