Sounds like the 05 Eagles will be an Ornithology case study for years to come! What could have gone wrong?
kids/coaches/parents went crazy when they lost in the finals of the Q.
Really. Kid is banned from EHF or they can't go to the Q in future years. Do you know how hard that is to do. And you think that is "normal" and don't have a problem with it.
You sir are what's wrong with youth hockey.
Eagles have some great players, don't get me wrong. It is just the parent's attitudes are going to land up hurting their kids in the very near future. It's like a "holier than thou" attitude and total secret society.
People it's 12 year old hockey!
banned from the Q for the future years? WOW! They must have behaved like Neanderthals! what did they do?
Kid banned from ehf this season only ? What about the coaches all gone ?
So what really happened?
A bunch of talented and passionate 12-13 year olds went to the most prestigious youth hockey tournament in the world and did what no other Western Hemisphere team could do - play in the finals.
Bummer for the 2006 Eagles. I guess there is always the Town Cup!
I heard the kid got caught in a hotel room with a tranny and Carl Gray from Assabet. Was a bad situation all around. That’s why they lost in the finals.
Interesting , i followed on the Eagles twitter account and didnt see anything after they won semifinals. They played all american teams and beat Jr Sabres in semi's! Hardly a tough road , but good run. Then we hear that they acted like jerks , coaches suspended , kids banned , Q tournament Organizer wants to pull EHF invites ... well done Eageles #rolleags #youdiditagain
only one thing would make this story better. juicy and sordid details about the parents in the hotel for 10 days. got to be something there???
Their 08' team is stacked.
They have not held that kid to any kind of standard. He has acted like a jackass for four years... That team is excellent, but if you do not think that kid has serious issues on and off the ice then you are friggin crazy. He is a rude, obnoxious, and incorrigible kid, who needs an attitude adjustment before next year. He is a big kid, more of a bully, but not tough. I would hate to see that talent wasted by a ****ty attitude. And mark my words his attitude sucks!!!
- Hats off to the 05 Eagles. Great experience and one they will always remember.
- The use of profanity within Quebec is much more common than in the U.S. it is widely accepted, not frowned upon.
With that said PD would not have gotten involved over a just few f-bombs dropped in the tunnel after the finals.
05 team won't be the same next season. Things change as you get into bantams. Players from this team will be splitting up to U14 teams, jr. prep teams, etc. Some will stay. New coach will be added to this mix...
Hockey in general has gone nuts. One kid made a mistake and now they are banning a whole program? With the clout the Eagles have in their org, they will take care of this and be back. Iginla, Leach... Something tells me they know people and shouldn't be banned for one kids mistake anyways. E9 Lets Lovell do anything they want to increase their teams playing in the best division. Their 09 Select Team is twice as good as the Elite team only so they can take two spots in E9. Wizards parents going ballistic at an 07 game. Disgusting behavior. Islanders parents going crazy at a 3 on 3 holiday tournament and then a bunch of jerks calling out one guy for causing all the issues. Not saying the guy was perfect, but WTF is wrong with everyone? Kids can come up any number of routes, just look at Jay O'Brien. The path less traveled. And, before everyone jumps on the Eagles coaches, think about your past, can you say you have complete control over every kid on your team? Those coaches have put a **** load of effort in over the years running development all the way up. Those that live in glass houses....
