Re: Hockey isn't for everyone

Willis, what you talkin' 'bout?

Re: Hockey isn't for everyone

Huh? Is English your second language? What events? What funding? Demand by whom?

Youth hockey isn't a "grassroots program." It's run by private, for-profit enterprises. Town hockey is, like any not-for-profit in a for-profit world, scrambling to keep up.

USA Hockey is a governing body that provides a common set of rules, comparable to Little League International, and a minimally valuable insurance policy that leaves people with a false sense of security.

Way more people are making way more money through the sport than 10 years ago. Sure, the economy could tank if Guam gets nuked, but short of that, it seems like an odd time to be thinking up doomsday scenarios.

I hate to correct you, but teams like the MMF...are non profit.

Which of course doesn't mean that MMF doesn't make a hefty profit. Harvard is a non profit too, but they have revenue, "profits", retained earnings(endowment) and employee count on par with Exxon Mobil or Merck and often behave as such. Being a non profit is mainly just a tax treatment.

The payments for ice time, in other words, the real money, paid by all the teams in this case is paid to the rink owner, that is, the same guy who owns the program. Your "non-profit" comment is comical.

Technically, not for profit, not non profit. And charities as well as amateur sports organizations do qualify under Code Sec. 501(c)(3). But MMF ain't no charity.
