Unfortunately, putting your kid on an auto bid E9 team does NOT make the kid or the mom "elite"...
not angry, just sick and tired of listening to all the BS. Every win by an E9/PHC "elite" team, was a win against a nationally ranked team.... every loss was against a nationally ranked team.... cant a win just be celebrated as a win and a loss be something to build on? And how is every **** team a "nationally ranked team"... oh ya... my hockey rankings...JOKE!!!
Thats not fair! We paid good money to get our kids on these teams. End of story! Oh, and you never know, we may already be besties :-)
You try and try to tell these people that putting your kid on a team that doesn't belong at that level is a bad idea and they just won't listen, cause it's the e9. Working out for those kids just the way we knew it would. Not the kids fault the parents are dumb. My kids team is barely .500 but at least they win every once in awhile.
I’m confused. Please clarify.
We are mad at the auto bid process? Or
We are mad at the knights organization? Or
We are mad at moms who talk about other games the kids pla*** with on another team?
We are all over the place here. Let’s narrow things down. We aren’t going to save the world in one post. I can be convinced the auto bud process is flawed. I’m not going to defend the knights org. And it’s a tough time of year to hear the chatter for some.
Im going to have to agree with @confused on this one, but I absolutely understand the frustration that @J&O is going through. yes, the system appears to be flawed, but at least theres a system to work with!! Your child receives a fair chance at an upper level team. there are so many great players that do not get that same fair chance in the P*C organization due to teams not holding true tryouts. As for the Kni**ts organization, depending on what level you are speaking of, it is unfortunate. there are also a lot of talented players that play for them but the lower age groups ie. 2009/2010 for instance, well, as we say in the south, "god bless your hearts"... and last, moms and dads will always fight for their babies, some just get a little too involved in the whole process and they shouldn't. I assume you are BHL parents/players, so be thankful! this is a tremendous organization and even a bad day in the BHL is better than any good days with the P*C. good night Ya'll
and this is the problem folks - Stop worrying about the level, auto bids, parity, tournaments, rankings, winning percentage, etc. This sport is becoming gross and needs to change. Focus on putting your kid with a coach you think will steadily improve your player and teach him lessons he can take with him in life. Make it more about fun and commitment.
