Starting Date

Now that the CHL has announced a plan starting date for Major Jr.A, when will the GOJHL announce their planned starting date. I know the situation could change plans daily but it would be nice to know what they are planning. If the GOJHL remain reluctant on announcing plans, maybe its time for the t...

Re: GOJHL 2020/2021 Season discussion

It has been almost 5 months since the League shut down.How long does it take to put a plan in place with contingencies, then update the plan every 2 weeks. The OJ has done it, the CCHL has done it. Sponsors and fans would like to know if the GOJHL even has a plan or has the OHF/OHA not told them wha...

Re: GOJHL 2020/2021 Season discussion

A bigger question may be is , how long will the current GOJHL Board and Commish stay in place after fumbling and stumbling in their leadership roles.

Re: Somethings Cooking

Its time to stick a fork in this league. They have rolled over and have played dead ever since they signed the agreement with the OJHL. The OJ continues to drive the GO into dismay. Its time for the 9 or 10 good teams (good owners ) to pull up stakes and find another league to play in, (OJHL, CCHL)....

It is to no ones surprise that the Corvairs act the way they do. They were the most penalized team in the entire GOJHL this year. They do have a good team but in no way are they as strong as they have been in the past. They self destructed two years ago in the Suthy finals and there was no doubt in ...

Why does the GOJHL and the OHA allow Buffalo to continue to make a farce out of the Jr.B Hockey League. For their first game of the playoffs in Caledonia last night, they showed up with 12 skaters. We complained about this in previous years when the OHA had full control of whatever happened in the G...

Message to Bob Morley, Just because a person once played in the GOJHL doesn't mean he knows how to officiate a junior game. Last night in St.Catharines is a perfect example on how under qualified these people can be. At least 2 of the game officials have played in the GOJHL, neither were much of a p...

Problems in Paradise

Was at the Welland/Pelham game tonight and got into a conversation with some fathers of Pelham players. According to them, many players have asked to be traded and as we know some have already have been. Ownership and head coach were the main topics of the conversation.

You are dead right.
