Re: Big News

Does it relate to eligibility to play at NCAA level being pulled because of free tuition? Does USA hockey wield that much power with colleges?

Re: Big News

It relates to the fact that nothing is free. Someone has to pay the costs. If you can't cover it with ticket sales, don't have sponsorship or deep pocket backing, then the players have to fund the season. Real tough to figure out.

Re: Big News

Financial model not working. Pay to play league next year. Going to be some unhappy parents.

Ding-Ding. Now these losers will have to pay to play tier 3 hockey that isn’t even affiliated with USA Hockey.
Maybe RG can donate some more $ to Colgate to get another commit for someone other than his son.

Re: Big News

I asked a coach who is courting my son this weekend. Wouldn’t give me a straight answer, which probably tells you what is coming!

Re: Big News

Even if there is a cost, the level of play is still better than any tier 3 league.

He couldn't give you a straight answer because there isn't a straight answer to give. All just unsubstantiated rumors on the D Board.

Remember how the Bandits were being kicked out of NCDC for not having enough numbers? Guess What? They fielded two NCDC teams this weekend.

So, that was fabricated.

Remember that the Monarchs were leaving the USPHL? They were there this weekend.

Another complete fabrication.

Same for the "Big News."

Re: Big News

Most programs had multiple teams ding dong. That’s how programs make money.
