We were waiting to play the next game so i have no skin in the game. And in fact you're dead wrong and clearly haven't played serious hockey. There's a reason hitting isn't allowed at this age; medical facts point out the greater risk long term effects of head injuries at a younger age. There's supposed to be no hitting in the game (taken out for precisely the above reason), let alone the garbage from the other night. When the hitting starts, kids are trained how to properly hit and how to more importantly take contact. Until them, player development is about skill on the ice. If you can't understand that, it's alarming, and hope your son doesn't ever face serious injury from lack of coaching.
The canadian skilled players aren't hitting at this age. Go up to Montreal or the cross border tournaments in Vermont. The Canadian coaches/parents get it, they are all about skill and finesse. We watched the #3 ranked center in Canada play (Canadian teams from Toronto, Montreal) against a team from southern mass and it was night and day. Speed, skill on one end, cheap hits on the other (the parent reaction was worse than what we saw the other night with people from Mass telling the Canadian parents to "go back to their effing country". That's downright embarrassing). The canadian team didn't need to hit and the game wasn't even close 10+ to nothing.
None of these kids are going to the NHL anyway, so teaching them to try to take each other's heads off is ludicrous.
Your team looked pretty skilled, hope they focus on that alone this year for a successful season.
...talking about PeeWee and under youth NON-CONTACT hockey btw, not high school and college. i get that hitting is allowed then.
I heard the coach was getting sucked off by one of the moms
Its all the Donald's fault, he didn't get the wall up in time!! Funny stuff , they are Peewee's right? Good stuff but the mom squealing is the best!
Anyone on any team that cowbells up is an antagonistic piece of trash, how does being an obnoxious slob help the kids develop? Does it teach them camaraderie? It teaches them it's okay to be a loser, saw a guy with a bongo last year, an effing bongo like you'd see in a Steven Seagal movie, complete dbag.
Just so you know. My son is a rifles player and has had two concussions, a knee injury, and a back injury from playing hockey. We’ve also had a kid break his collar bone in a tournament. So it does happen. It’s a contact sport. As the kids get older the more contact there is. And your team was real “ classy” by flipping the bird as they were leaving the ice.
You are an effing idiot. so your saying because your son has had injuries, that justifies what happened saturday? Seriously? Sniff more of that springfield paint. You must have been the blonde keeping stats or the mom shaking the cowbell.
The worst thing that happened was the VJW players cross check to the Rifles kid after the whistle blew. #15 was talking to the ref and the kid hit him in the back of the neck so hard they both went down. That is intent to injure.
That was a **** move, and he should be disciplined for that cross check as that could have injured the kid,
but the 8 stride bodycheck was a terrible thing to watch.
Can we move on yet? Im sure the kids have
No I am not. It doesn’t matter who my kid is on the team. I am just saying that he’s been hurt playing. I’ve had to drive him straight to the ER for being slufooted which is illegal and the kid should have gotten kicked out of the league but I didn’t persue anything. I did have to pay for 6 weeks of physical therapy for his knee injury that he sustained. I am just saying hockey injuries happen. My brothers friend got his wrist skated over while at a tournament when hey wer kids and another kid broke his collar bone three hours away from home. And just for the record we clapped when the player got off the ice
But none of that nonsense that went on Saturday needed to happen. As long as kids like #63 can’t control themselves this will keep happening to your team. The kid who did the cross check from VJW was reacting to an over reaction from #63 who didn’t like the kid swatting him in the thigh. That stuff happens all game, if he’s going to spaz out every time you are in for an eventful season. And #9 taking a run at that kid wasn’t needed, 5-0 score with his team coasting to an easy win. Maybe their coach might want to instill a little sportsmanship into those kids.
This is why I am glad my kid is EHF ELITE. We dont have to deal with this rif raf and dirty play.
The mommy lost me at "There's a reason hitting isn't allowed at this age; medical facts point out the greater risk long term effects of head injuries at a younger age"
You realize it was all a money grab by USA Hockey to keep revenue coming in through peewee years, right? The 'medical facts' were presented by USA Hockey as the reason but ask one or 5,000 medical experts if it's a great idea to delay checking until the age when the absolute discrepancy in size is at it's greatest and 100% of them will tell you it's a stupid & dangerous idea.
And here we are, all for the love of money and a little boost for the kids in Ann Arbor.
After Rifles tryouts next March.
We can all say....Sorry your Grandma got cut! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
This is my field. Obviously not yours.
You are incorrect. In every way. I could spend time outlining for you how the rotational forces are far more significant in the cause of a concussion and how a child has a disproportionately sized melon as compared to the rest of his/her body and how the neck muscles cannot respond to the rotational force as well as when they are older or even present the data about how a child's neurons respond to head injury but what would be the point? You already have your opinion and some nonsensical group of 5,000 medical professionals. Seriously. Step aside. Your opinion is not an equivalent to fact or medical science. Ass.
Just watched. Rifles definitely instigators. Terrible hockey from both sides. What a mess
OK enough of this post...we've beat this story to death... it was obviously a bad moment for all involved...let it go and get ready for the season...we all get it now...now go get your effin shine box!!!:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: :muscle: :muscle: :muscle:
