The Official New England Ice Hockey DBoard

There is a petition gathering steam that will be headed to Governor Baker to allow the kids to play games. Plenty of dialog on the Dboard on this subject so no need to rehash it. If you are in favor step up, sign it and forward to every hockey parent you know. If you are not, that is fine too. This is America where we have choices so time to take a stand if you believe what is happening is wrong
Time for Fidel Baker to sh*t or get off the pot and make his full intentions known with regard to youth sports like ice hockey, soccer, lacrosse, and football. Clearly the decisions are not being made by the numbers so let us know what the real plan is so we can adjust or react accordingly. There is no need for to play us like a bunch of pheasants.
The petition idea makes me laugh. We have a better chance of getting a ref to change a call by screaming at him from the bench than we do to get a Governor to change his mind from a petition signed by a bunch of hockey parents. It is time to face realities, hockey in MA is at the mercy of politicians. I am confident in saying Baker cares more about his future political aspirations (possible run for other positions) than he does about youth sports. The taxes generated from youth sports is so low he could care less. The majority of the teams with parents complaining on this board are non-profits. The rinks generate some local tax revenue but outside of that the Commonwealth could care less. Be prepared for a longer delay possibly the rest of the calendar year and start asking your coach to set up games with NH teams bc that is going to be your only option. God Bless NH.
