It's morons like you that are stating all the items you listed. These teams could care less. Both Eagles and IHC know they are good teams. It's angry people like you that is the problem.
Other than the boys not playing well, which they are well aware, it is you - the parents that are all wound up about how your boys/teams are performing. You guys are insane at how you behave because of some dboard post. By the way, this thread is about imploding teams which is really about the parents and how they behave, not the boys. See you next week on the Dboard.
So let me get this right. The IHC and BJE lost their games because a few forwards from IHC were missing, the IHC goalie was missing, and the BJE had a forward missing. Assuming a few means 2 that would be a total of 4 players that, by your own words, are the cause of a loss or win.
Again, the above is your own words.
So what does that say about the other players? So maybe your player isn't as impactful as you may think. Maybe it is a very small handful that are truly elite. So when you bash another team or league, please understand, by your own words, your little bender may belong there.
We all know the "elite" teams around here stand above the rest solely because of 2-3 outstanding players, and the rest are all supporting cast, replaceable by any number of kids on other EHF or E9 teams, even the top end EHF Tier 1 players.
