New tier 1 names....
I thought it was bad before, what a joke.
How bad are these Silver teams going to be? And some of these 07 upper gold teams couldn’t hang in white last year, what makes anyone think they will do well in Upper Gold.
I can’t believe I just typed UG.
What names would y'all have used?
Red - nope, insulting to indigenous peoples
Blue - nope, too pro-cop
Yellow - nope, Asians will be offended
White, Black, Brown, Tan, Beige - nope, nope, nope, nope, nope
I think we're left with teal, grey/gray, magenta and chartreuse.
I'll take Platinum, Gold and Silver, thanks.
Platinum, Gold, Silver...sure
But upper gold and lower gold? Come on.
Aah I can here it now. “My kid’s fed platinum”. LOL. “E9 can’t compete with fed platinum”.
You just became bigger losers.
This is so retarded. Reminds me of when my daughter did competitive dance (yes that is a thing) and they had divisions like Platinum, Upper Gold, something else Gold, something something else Gold, and whatever. Her team was placed in something Silver (literally the bottom rung out of 6-7 rungs), but at least they'd usually finish 1st or 2nd because there were never more than 2 teams in their category. Yes, everyone got a trophy too.
They really should've just renamed Elite on down to "Tiers 1, 2 and 3" and ask anyone after that to go back to town.
How are you cashin in if you don’t have 5 teams at each level....duh
I think this is a joke.
Every year the FED becomes more and more of a joke of a league that lives solely on its legacy and the false narrative that it is the top place to play.
But, I think ownership knows this and giggle every year to see how far they can push this thing. Every year they must say that there is no way parents will pay 3g for tier 7 hockey and every year parents prove them wrong.
I was really hoping covid would be a market correction for youth hockey and we got back to selects, town and house league and that was it !
Same circus. Different clowns !
It should be elite and tier 1. Everyone else go back to town. Absolutely ridiculous to put your kid on the 4th club team when he could be on the town B team with his buddies having fun.
Actually it previously was A,B,C town who stayed regional, and then AA and AAA regional selects, picked from town teams to play other regional selects.
Levels for everyone to play, and no nonsense names like elite, gold or super.
