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
