As a fed parent, I think the ehf is a great league, and coaching is superb. I honestly have seen only 3-4 E9 games, and I thought they were decent games, although, I thought the ehf games were slightly more competitive.
That being said, I am so tired of listening to other parents on my sons team obsession with the E9. Every practice and game it is 75% of every conversation.
I joke with the other parents, but I'm really serious, that after 3 years it's probably time to find a new topic other than the E9. Last week I asked one of the other mothers why the E9 teams would not play us, her answer was "we are not allowed to play them".
In disbelief, I asked our coach if that was indeed the case, and he answered "yes". I asked the coach why, his exact quote was, "we have nothing to gain by playing the E9, if we win, we're supposed to win, if we lose, they'll have bragging rights.....and they have some good teams".
If we don't want to play them that's fine, but how can every parent be so obsessed with how much better we are than the E9 , if we refuse to play them. Even if we are better, I'm sure the games will be better than playing the bottom 4-5 teams in my sons division.
