What!? We never heard about any of this at tryouts. Are you talking about the head coach? Shocking! What the heck.
If you don't question the all mighty CP and are ok with him having severe control issues, being an ego-maniac and total narcissist...things will be fine. Don't question his lack of hockey knowledge (highest level played goalie on men's league), his affair with a team mom (poor husband has had no idea for 2 seasons), his bff/assistant coach who is never sober, the fact that neither of them can pass a CORI check you will have a great season! Oh and if you can look past the fact that his kid is not cut out for this level. Just be prepared that if your child is on ice same time as his kid or his lover's kid, your child will be called out and blamed for whatever went wrong that shift. It is a great environment that he creates and shame on the MMF for allowing it to continue for a 3rd season. CP, LR and WT are horrible people. Good luck and best wishes for a "fun" season
Yowza, this sounds like great reality TV!
He probably laid it on thick!
Not the first time LR has blocked kids/families from pursuing a better opportunity, and it won't be the last. The only consolation is that his own team is a complete mess, which must break his heart.
Many of the flames teams are a complete mess. Yes, LR's 04 team, the aforementioned 05 Tier 1 team, 06 tier 1 team, the 04 tier 1 team. They are not the only game in town anymore, there are many, many more, better options now for quality coaching and quality ownership. How many championships did they win this season, with what 25+ teams that they field? If I had to guess, maybe 3? 1 of which was the 06 elite team that was mentioned earlier, that was using an illegal player.
Two more sheets on the way though, so the money keeps flowing. Hey fed4life guy, keep promoting because you know they are all about developing your kid, right? They are playing you, but you keep pushing their message.
