Two games today. I witnessed multiple weird looking moms and dad filming their kids shifts. 2011 and 2009 level. Is this the new trend? What are they doing with the footage? Why not just watch?
08 parents doing the same in Florida today BJE and LA JR Kings
When your kids are older, it’s fun to watch these memories. Our oldest is 19 and we love it. Try having some fun will ya.
Witnessed this at a skills event. She was filming and reading a book.
Id love to know what is more fun: Watching your bender play and living in the moment or zooming in through a phone so you can sit down 10 years from to see just how average he really was? Lol so nitwits on this boards:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
I film for family who can't attend the games. Live Barn isn't always on or offered at all rinks. Grandparents LOVE watching the games.
Did you just come out of a decades long coma or something? Everyone has a camera in their pocket now. Why wouldn't you capture some of these memories?
Great call. Never considered everyone has a camera. By all means just hit the record button every second your kid is on the ice!
Don’t be so quick to judge! With rink restrictions most are live streaming so other family members are able to watch!
Weird looking or exotic looking? How could you make a judgment through the mask? You have X-Ray vision ?
Most are live streaming because of the rink restrictions. Trust me, it would be a lot easier to watch than to have to hold the camera/ phone up for an hour.
It never ceases to amaze me the nitwits on this Board, lol
Lot of filming parents here.
two moms do it on my kids team so the Dad can "correct" the issues when they get home. Neither dad can skate.
Some people also pay for that analysis stuff and the programs want game shifts to analyze skating.
Very important stuff stuff in youth hockey
Watch, share, download. And you can actually relax and watch the game without filming.
Its done for 2 reasons:
Parents running video session post game.
Parents looking for vid highlights for the family.
Both are ridiculous.
Think outside of the box. Clips of the game can be good entertainment during the pandemic. It is free, you can delete easily and it is funny/stupid/great at times. We get some good laughs out of some clips from time to time. We are not studying it, but sometimes share a laugh or a crazy clip with the friends and relatives who are not allowed to visit our state and watch. Stop judging everyone, they don’t all wear your shoes.
