Re: GOJHL AGM Today

This is a ridiculous situation. A rogue league... In the OHA? I would make the whole junior B league sit it out until they get it straightened out. Either shut down the infrastructure that is at the root of this dispute or all endorse it. If they just want GMHL 2 then proceed I can see now why Caled...

Re: Halton Ravens relocate to St. George

Harry Howelll was a great rink when I covered their one off game their last season in Halton. I heard it was push back from the powers that be in Hamilton that didn't want to seem to "endorse" sudo Junior A hockey in their city. (They probably wanted to protect the Bulldogs fanbase.

Re: replay

Video replay wouldn't be impossible. I am not sure if they would overturn a game result the day after even if they were able to review and see it was kicked in. All they really have to do is institute a minimum level of video coverage that is acceptable. The quality I've seen out of some teams (SD, ...

Re: Caledonia and Ancaster games on Cable 14

I have seen 2 angles of it and it doesn't look nearly as bad as something to justify a 4 game suspension. It looked like Lindberg basically upended the Falcons player at worst. Tripping call to say the least. Problem with video is the penalty happened away from the play so 1 camera was moving back t...

Re: How will the OHA deal with the Buffalo/Thorold embarrassments next year

All I hope is that the league puts measures in place... checks and balances... so that what happened in Thorold never happens again. At least I know now why Thorold never got that Club 90 Member for its operations... notice a few other GOJHL teams are absent as well... http://www.oha.pointstreaksite...

They should have Brantford move over and play in the GHL playoffs, this way its consistent number of teams in the three leagues. I really like this idea.

Re: Buffalo has FOLDED

Please move the team to a Canadian city. Can't be an easy go of icing a team that has to play by different rules to put together a team. It's like inserting a GMHL team into the GO and expecting good results right away... wait... that's probably exactly what it was like.

It's too bad. Have to admit Jeff Tallman was one of the GMHL owners I could honestly say I respected. We covered a handful of games for the team early in their season.

Except in the GMHL there is nothing wrong with paying or not-making players pay to play on a team. It's like the wild west where the prize is the "Russell Cup".

Awesome news for St. George Dukes fans. Beats heading out of town to watch a game.

Know the organization so it should be a competitive team as it has been for the last few seasons since they bought the team. They love signing former Corvairs as well so easy relocation.
