Families beware !!! There have been at least 7 topics in the last month about WN and his new ventures. This man has devastated a program off cape and now has set his sights on you. He will tell you it's only a couple disgruntled parents from teams he had to cut their players or parents that just don't like him from other programs. Do your due diligence. Not everyone can be wrong. He has promised to take your money!! Laughed and said people will line up when you leave. Doesn't matter whether his product is good or bad you win or lose. He says don't believe what you see on here. That I do agree with him. You may like the product he is selling. Although I don't look at my player as product on a shelf. Ask questions of people at games, sporting events. See what families have to say about this man and his reputation Then make an informed decision. There are plenty of programs out there. You have warned!!!
Plenty of programs ... wrong. We have been warned and warned and warned. Thank you and we will do what we feel is right at this point. If we get screwed so be it.. we leave. One year will not make or break a youth player. Most coaches are staying a few changes will happen, the price might go up and have a solid plan A,B & C. Move on dboard your beating this to death.
I'm really amazed how one person can be the topic of so many threads. We were not happy with how things were handled at our previous program and know of, and have met many Patents over a three year span who were not happy with the Bandits or how they allowed him to run things into the ground.
Fortunately, the families we we're friendly with we're all able to have their players move to new programs and continue to play. I know there are many who were happy to hear he would be leaving and heading to the Cape but I wonder how much I wasn't aware of with this much anger towards one person. I will say that splitting up teams mid season after they have already bonded, demanding players who quit return or they will blackball siblings who still play there and cutting a player at the first practice even though he skated for a year with him and offered a contract just a few months before certainly shows his character to me. These were 8-9 yea old kids.
I understand this is the EHF and contracts may not be renewed but that other stuff is above and beyond. All of can say to the Hurrucane families is do what is best for your kid and that may be difficult different for each kid. But have a plan B because that may be necessary. And that is no different for anyone who has their player in a club program.
I'd be just as concerned with his business partner. Sha sha shady!
All of this banter is a waste of time. Deal not happening. No rink being built on the Cape. No permits. There is a mystery person in the mix that is working with the EHF to come in and start a new program. Cape Cod Whalers youth program. Cape Cod Islanders Jr program also being renamed and part of the program. There will be youth levels in the EHF, upper levels in Mass selects tier 1 and PHL for tier 2, and then the junior program that is replacing Bandits in the EHL. All playing out of Hyannis.
Can the board owner prevent anymore posts in this subject? It's awful and old and redundant! I don't think anyone wants to hear anymore.
Calling you out.. he asked your son to play for him.. your a liar. What age and who would be the coach?
HA!! This should be good...Which 05 team??
Which 05 team do you think he is going to coach? The one on the MPHL?? who cares..good for him they need some help. He absolutely will not be coaching the Indy 05 team..
you would think that the parents of kids that play on the hurricanes top 05 team and the Bandits team that he coaches would be the best people to talk to and see where this is headed !
Done deal !
I will totally take that bet!! He is not coaching that team. Fact!
No that is not what I am saying. I said he won't be coaching 2005 Indy team. He will probably be coaching his son on a 2006 team or the 2005 2nd team but not the Indy team. Keep up
Or ...maybe I am "in the know" and you friend don't have a clue.
Does BB know that a lot of players / coaches are leaving to go to CCTA?
A few of those players are from the Cape. Those are the ones who are switching. Same with a couple of Cape kids from WN's original team....and 1-2 cult followers. As far as the original 06 - 3 teams, the majority left over the last 2-3 years so any 06 left are newbies. 04 lost a couple due to the Q which is why they had a bad year this year. But yes, you always have those parents chasing the dream and WN sells a big bag of lies
Maybe it's you who is lying....ever think of that?
It's not so many people, it's maybe 2- 3 people posting over and over. You can tell because they use the same phrases, sayings, tone and lingo in their posts. Some are exactly the same as they posted a month ago. If you were one of the bandits burnt by WN yoyr are a sucker and doormat who didn't do your research and your kid must be awful and have no where else to go. It's one season of youth hockey get over it and move on.
title says it all..
05 guy is pretty quiet now. Go back and read the threads that didn't get deleted and piece it all together?
If you look at tournament records of the last few years you will notice that the MPDHL premier teams easily beat the BHL teams.
And the MDPHL is where the Fed puts their AA teams
Hey, enough of the name calling.
WN devastated the 06 level at the Bandits totally blew it up. Still don't understand how ownership allowed it to happen. His kid still plays there 05 tier1. Why BE allows him to let him run the show up there. Mind boggling at best
except the tournaments I have seen this tear or maybe there is another MPHL that I am not aware of ?
It's not like they will have to play into the BHL. You buy your way in. None of the hurricanes teams will make the E9. Even with the 04 Bandits moving over to Hurricanes, they will not qualify for E9, they are basically tier 1 black lever playing elite.
Wow you are spending a lot of time caring about WN and hurricanes team. Why do you care what he said and to whom? Worry about something that matters. If it has nothing to do with you or your child why spend so much time worrying about it..?
