You are missing the point. You don't put Tier 1 on the ice w C level. It's cheating and dangerous. Period
We're talking Girls hockey, right? Didn't realize that still happened on these Boards. Thought everyone "understood."
And did you hash tag in the body of a post on the D boards? You do know how that works, I hope?
The moves parents and coaches make to take home a $2.00 medal are whacked. The show goes on.
Rosters and score sheets don't lie. One major and minor player put on the team playing at C level. Pathetic.
Was it c or was it b level... or does it matter?
This tournament was mostly select and elite girls teams and you are angry that Natick brought two ringers.. Martha you just got beat by town team.. deal with it
Wolfie our C level girls got beat by 2 Tier 1 players that put up every point by Natick. Anything to win, right? There's no team in that bush league move.
Martha, are you this intense in the sack? If under 150 lbs please send pics....
Serious question. At what age do the girls transition from hockey to cheerleading?
Wolverine sounds like a coach in the area! Anyway the Natick Comets swept the U12 C diviion at the Cranbery Classic ane brought home the GOLD.
Yup, a town team destroyed a bunch of development level C teams. It's really embarrassing to get beat by town team out Mass whole reagrdless of what they did to win. I mean Massachusetts fall from hockey grace has been epic to watch over the years. But it is a good thing that more of your locals are hanging around to man one of the tens of thousands of Dunkin Donuts planted around Bahstin.
Hockey Dreams Shattered - The Decay of Boston Hockey
Martha, what size sweat pants do you wear? XL or XXL? And are they gray?
OMG! This is the most insane thread ever on the dboard!
Hmmm Anon I would wait to see how this plays out. Natick got busted cheating and everyone knows it.
It all comes down to Natick's use of PEG'S
performance enhancing girls
hockey its the best game you can play
And if anyone knows anything about PEGs or getting pegged it's Wolverine.
Wait, I'm confused. Are we talking about soccer or hockey? Sounds like soccer to me. I thought this was a hockey board?
if these girls were skating w. Naticks 2nd/B girls hockey team that would be a problem..but as long as the girls were rostered w. USA and playing w. Naticks top girls team its ok.. regardless of division A, B OR C. Many hockey players both girls and boys play w elite programs and their town teams during the year. So don't be shocked any more when this happens Martha
its good like a 5 cent cigar
The real problem in youth hockey is the associations that are pulling kids from 80 miles to win games and tournaments.. in New England it starts at mites.
keep it local folks
What we've got here is failure to communicate.
Some men you just can't reach.
So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it.
Well, he gets it.
I don't like it any more than you men.
There is no rule in USA Hockey or Mass Hockey that female club players can't play on local girls teams or local co-ed teams. If a town is fine with players only being available for certain games or tournaments then so be it. The only rule that exists on the dual rostering of players is that a player may only be rostered on one National Bound team.
According to the Natick website, there is only 1 Girls 12 & Under team. where is a girl who plays club but also wants to play town with her friends supposed to play. Her options are that 12 and under team or on one of 4 Pee Wee co-ed teams.
What Natick did is perfectly kosher.
This wouldn't happen with boys. Those players would immediately be pulled off the bench. Seen it happen. Heard the organizers of this USA hockey sanctioned event aren't pleased with with this blatant violation. Keep your Tier 1 Assabet and let Natick try w their own talent. Defending this behavior is sad.
Martha I'm not sure you understand... if you have any information that those two girls are not from Natick speak up and share w. us. other wise shut your ignorant mouth.
Wolfie- already done in the appropriate manner. Naming those specific girls on this board would be irresponsible. I actually care about kids and their hockey experience.
we have been winning at a 87% clip since joining this discussion board... lots of hockey left this season and i have learned so much.
thank you all so much
Ya I have nothing to do w. Natick hockey...I live a few hrs away from Natick
What do think you have to teach me. I'm all ears
You are all racist!
