Re: Elite vs Tier 1

Who cares my child, blessed are the elites, the worshipers are the tier 1 and the demons cast in hell are the e9/but
Now say 10 our fathers and 15 hail Mary's and maybe some day he shall step into the light of elites. Sin and got to HE(e9/bhl)ll

Re: Elite vs Tier 1

The 2 top team's in the Black Division should get to play 6-10 in the Elite Division in the playoffs. Just my 2 cents. It would make the season interesting.

Sorry your kid is so boring that his season isn't interesting to you already.

Re: Elite vs Tier 1

There is a system that would perfectly fit both the EHF and other leagues. Anyone familiar with the European soccer model that uses relegation and promotion?

Basically you would have the 4 levels of the EHF. At the end of the season the 2 teams in last place in each Tier are relegated to the lower league and the top 2 teams are promoted.

It fosters competition from top to bottom in each tier. It would replace parity which is an unmitigated disaster in club hockey. It would also promote some (not a lot, but some) allegiance to a team or program as building a stronger team and trying to get to the next level may drive people to stay rather than hop.

In theory it really is a great system, it is almost a model with a built in parity feature.

What does the professional European soccer model have to do with youth recreational hockey?

smh

You guys just don't get it. Your kids are NOT professionals. Leagues don't matter, except to parents. Find a good coach, pay for small group skills outside of the team, and help your kid to love the sport while he's developing. Maybe he'll be in the 25% that play in HS. Maybe he'll be in the 4% that play in college. Maybe he'll be in the 1% that play professionally.

Other than that, stop thinking you know how to run other people's businesses better than they do. It is't about sports or parity or competitiveness to them. It's about the money. A strong team doesn't care how many weak teams there areas long as people keep writing checks. A weak team doesn't care how many strong teams there are as long as people keep writing checks.

See a theme in there?

Re: Elite vs Tier 1

If it's about the money then allow cross over games with Tier 1 BHL VHL E9 AYHL anyone. Stop wearing about money, this will allow the league to become richer. Instead of the water down BS.

Always afraid to play teams in tournament or schedule a scrimmage. Come one put your boots on.

I definitely see a theme. Take your grievances somewhere else. Start a thread about how you've paid $15k over the last 5 years and your kid is still in White and would rather play Dungeons and Dragons.
