Re: Parent Reactions

Yes, unfortunately I know your type that brings the entire family, some kids run around, hide in locker rooms, breaks the vending machines while the parents chat hockey with other parents and not pay attention. Yes, I know your type that starts screaming when one of the 5 kids spill popcorn all over the place, the younger one is crying because he's not getting attention ... I guess over 10+ years of 5am games and 8pm practices times 3 or 4 kids makes you want to talk like that. There's a better way to relieve stress than the board. I love hearing info, scheduling, parents feedbacks ... whining and crying ... save it for Facebook and let your FRIENDS respond to your posts. You're not the only hockey parent working their tails off.

Re: Parent Reactions

You might want to brush up on your reading skills a bit yourself there, Skippy. My reading skills are fine. He said "For the past 13 years, I am been primarily coaching my three kids." Yes, "I am been."

And, I call double BS. You're defending the OP just a *bit* too hard. Which means, you are probably the OP.

You are so dumb it's scary.

Let's say kid 1 starts in 98. Plays 4-5 yrs and kid 2 comes along. Coaches that one 5 yrs. Kid 3 is born in 08 and he's got 4yrs running coaching this one.

Try and keep up.

Or help your kid with math homework once in a while.

Reading comprehension a bit is different than a grammatical error my little D-board D-bag friend. Try this one to see if you can follow along. "I am Sam, Sam I am, I do not like green eggs and ham. I will not eat them in a rink, I will not eat them with a dink (that's you,) I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them Sam I am."

Re: Parent Reactions

OP makes a good point, and points out something that bothers me too. No, these people did not play a sport, at least at any reasonably high level. Neither did the posters responding to this thread. They are all hoping and praying that somehow their kid will make it further than they did. Few will...athletes are made through genetics and a certain mindset. Even if these types luck into the genetics, their parents will ruin it for them with their mindset.

Re: Parent Reactions

Genetics? Really? My kid is very good at hockey. I'm a brainiac, and the wife is known for having good assets, if you know what I mean. No athletic background from either of us although we are wealthy beyond belief. So where did our kid get his hockey expertise from?

You are not the father. You are some geek whose wife is running around with an athlete. Pretty simple!

Why do all the insecure ones have to post this crap

Re: Parent Reactions

Nice to start a informative post and receive smart ass remarks that's totally not related to your message. Oh well.

Re: Parent Reactions

Re: Parent Reactions

How many people (coaches, parents, players) actually take time to read the USA Hockey rule book? I would guess it's very few. Parents freak out because they see things on the ice they don't like and yell about it. Most, even if they have played hockey, don't know the actual rules since it's mostly information passed down that is outdated. That said, the kids know what they have been told by parents and coaches, but realistically, they think they know the real rules, but don't. So in my opinion, this is why parents go crazy yelling at referees and coaches.

I have parent on my team who would loose his mind after every "bad" call and lay into the refs. He also couldn't handle junior loosing puck battles to stronger players.

So, after he ignored my requests to zip it, I had the ref throw him out of a game invoking USA Hockey's Zero Tolerance policy.

Now he is quite as a church mouse!

Re: Parent Reactions

USA Hockey is a joke, the kids should be checking in squirts! Learning how to give and take a check at an early age.

I'm a big believer in this. I know they want to keep kids in the game for longer, but it seems to me you could play no check at Tier 2 (BHL, EHF Tier 1, EMHL, VHL, etc.) and let the Tier 1 players play with contact (EHF Elite, E9). Then there's a place for kids to play no check until bantam (or even extend that rule up to older ages), and a place for the more skilled players to learn real hockey at a younger age.

That's the craziest thing I've ever heard. Kids move around yearly. Plenty of kids in tier 1 black as talented as elite and E9 kids. Plenty of kids who play town for financial or travel reasons. Fortunately the EHF allows a higher physical level of play but home on man. I have a kid who plays EHF but you sound like a hockey snob. I think they should be checking from the time they start playing (little kids give little checks. Start them early so they get used to being more physical) but it's rediculous to think the Fed and E9 should play with different rules than every other league out there. FYI, 90% of FED is going to end up in the same place as 90% of town
