  1. QV has never had a JV team. On their website they list a roster for MS so that leads one to wonder if they just went independent instead of being in PIHL. Looks like Hampton has no JV team this season which seems to make sense since they graduated a ton and had low MS numbers last year.
  2. To be clear though, this 25% rule is not a USA Hockey rule, this is strictly Mid-Am doing this. Other districts do not implement this policy. We had families recently move in from other districts that couldn't believe there was such a rule because we were unable to take their 2007 because we had hit the limit....we will have a short bench because of this and next year, maybe no team at all in PIHL.
  3. PAHL AA is beneath them but PIHL is not?? Seems like an odd conclusion for them to come to.
  4. Didn't make huge improvements??? You couldn't even drink the water there before MF and DW bought the place. Complain about them all you want, but if those guys hadn't stepped in there would be one less rink in WPa today.
  5. This is great, a development program is a great way to get the kids into the program. However, not all programs have the volunteers or the resources to do this and rely on the middle school program to be the developmental program. After all, that's what Mid-Am claims, that MS should be developmental and then proceeds to hamper programs that are trying to develop by limiting the number of younger players. I'm not exactly sure why Mid-Am has made this rule. Dropping it from 9 players to 25% of the total roster is a pretty dramatic change. Maybe this is their way of getting leagues like PIHL to drop the MS level and just have MS be truly developmental only?
  6. I'm pretty sure it excludes goalies from that number but yeah, it's a terrible rule hurting a lot of programs.
  7. Hey GoldenHorshoe, how about instead of spamming every thread with the same crap you read what the OP was asking for first. Can you not read that he is looking for a place less than 2 hours away??
  8. The team is the 4th ranked '04 Tier 2 team in the country, outscored opponents 323-85 but they cheated all season? How'd they ever manage to win all those games away from the cheaters at the Mt. Lebo rink?
  9. If parent doing the clock was a parent on the team playing in that game then that is wrong. Leads to parent being too invested in the game to remember to start the clock or worse, purposely not starting it. As I said, our organization would not even let parents do the clock/scoresheet if they had a player playing at that level (in other words, if you had a bantam age player, you couldn't do the clock for any bantam playoff game, you had to volunteer for a completely different age group).
  10. Granted it's bad that the clock was not started right away but....there are 11.6 seconds on the clock at the start of this video and the goal was scored with 5 seconds left. Using a stopwatch, there are 5 seconds before the clock begins to run. So even if it had been started at the drop of the puck, there still would have been 1+ seconds left.
  11. The people doing the scoresheet and the clock for PAHL playoff games are supposed to have no "conflict of interest" with the 2 teams involved. That's the way it was at our organization that hosted games, I can't believe this isn't the same for other organizations.
  12. This is 100% true, just watched it. These types of net front scrums happen numerous times in a game and the refs gave the Blazers a double-minor and the Vipers a minor. Sure looks like they were trying to set a tone from the start of the game. And for those saying why not a "5 and game"...no way this warranted that type of penalty, it was a brief scrum that was over and done with in a few seconds with both teams skating away before the refs even got involved. I've seen this same thing not be penalized at all many times.
  13. My guess is this is a "back door" that they missed locking down....which they are likely to do soon.
  14. Can you even see the scores of the games played anymore? It looks like they even took that away. You should at least be able to see those scores, especially if you are entering into MyHockey results.
  15. What he listed were the classes for football, which look correct.
