Re: The OHA

the OHF should be able to deal in good faith with the OHA but learnt the hard way ...just like the OJHL and GOJHL Inc. OHA has numerous skeletons in the closet that require a complete change up on the board for them to ever be revealed to the membership. we are talking years of financial impropriety...

Re: The OHA

'After Darren DeDobbelaer bought the Icehawks in 2017, he requested to move the team to Brantford earlier this year. According to DeDobbelaer, the OHA did not respond to his request so the team went ahead and moved.' https://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/sports/local-sports/junior-a-99ers-revert-to-mil...

Re: The OHA

According to the OJ board, Tom Renney is supposed to come down this week. I spoke to someone on the weekend and asked how is the OHA structured, since it feels like Karen is just a puppet. I was told that theoretically, she is at the top, because she's President, but Brad Grant is the one pulling t...

I've heard just enough that if 10% of it is true the OHA board will be dissolved and re-structured and I hope a civil suit follows

Re: NEW Jr C OVERAGE RULE

correct - HC, OHF, OHA don't see Jr C as a development model
cut out the 16 yr olds, add an extra year of play (21) and do away with the 4 overagers
this would cater more to small town hockey

Re: GOJHL Issues

Just how bad would a B league independent of HC look? Think about the fact that if they operate outside HC then any OHL draft pick that has any desire to affiliate to the major club could NOT play in a league outside of HC sanctioning. Teams struggle to find talent now. Inc going independent is not...

Re: 2018/2019 Schedule

It would be interesting to know if this was from a league official or a MYFM employee that does play by play for one of the teams.

Re: 2018/2019 Schedule

Nothing yet on the league website. With less than a full complement of teams it may just go down as an exhibition tournament and the other teams can do their own tournament whenever/if they see fit. The games shouldn't count in the standings. I am not sure refering to it as a "League Showcase" is t...

Re: 2018/2019 Schedule

There are drafted players who are playing in the GOJHL, most teams keep an eye on their drafted players. BUT, your missing the point. A scout emailed the league seeking information about its players, the league didnt even bother to email them back. What kind of league does that? It seems to mismana...

Re: 2018/2019 Schedule

and sometimes the schedule doesn't get done as certain teams are unable to confirm icetimes until they get their finances(debt) in order with the local arena/municipality
they should have that put to bed the same time they can sign players and collect their team/league/OHA fees- June 1

Re: 2018/2019 Schedule

The GOJHL is always one of the last leagues to publish a schedule, but this is even late by their own standards. Their league showcase is only 4 weeks away. GOJHL Inc claims that the showcase is one of their events so it is still unknown if all teams will be attending with the squabble still unreso...

@coachFloyd...I do think there is some merit to the comment about players leaving for the PJHL and OJHL.

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

I'm guessing the GOJHL Inc legal fees are atrocious - but if they want any chance of being classified "A" they have to fight the OHA. OHA wants control of the GOJHL to appease the OJHL who they sold their soul to years ago OHA legal fees are also atrocious as the exec is highly litigious on any and ...
