Re: Tuck steps down

Honestly, I am not sure you really want anyone affiliated with the league at present. It might be better to have a fresh approach with someone who thinks differently and can manage the different personalities. Relationship building and effective collaboration skills will be key. And as someone else...

Re: Tuck steps down

Toss your name in. Why not? Life’s short. Be bold. I don't want the job. I've heard what league meetings are like, I don't want to deal with that, nor am I the right person. Fair enough, I guess. Are there any candidates from around the league (or beyond) that would be a good fit for the role?

Re: Tuck steps down

Well, you need to have someone who knows the political landscape within the league and within the governance structure in this province. That is the first thing. They need to forge ahead and protect the footprint because there is a battle on the horizon. And guess what...the OJHL has exploited the ...

16s vs 99s

I don't know if the GOJHL is going through a similar process, but... I caught wind that PJHL has put out a vote out to its membership (due today at noon) to see if the league will allow 1999-born players to play during the 2021-22 season and disallow 16-year-olds to play during the 2021-22 season.

Wouldn't mind if people would keep things to themselves before blasting out a social media post like that. It raises a lot of questions without many concrete answers. Don't think it's appropriate.

Don't know about shuttering the franchise, but with 3 games remaining in their schedule and essentially no roster, the Yeck might only have 8 teams next season. Not 100% sure though.

Again? As in they have quit before? Hope that’s not the case. The team is 5-12-3-1 and could still turn it around, maybe?

The grass isn’t always greener I guess. Hope it turns around.

Re: Strathroy Rockets

The next 5 games:

at London
at St Marys

vs St Marys
at Komoka

A prediction (for fun):

L, W, L, W, W

A 3-2-0 record would good. The two losses would be against London.

An impressive turn around in North Middlesex. More often than not, I am seeing wins from the Stars and that’s s good thing. I also like the fact they’ve got a younger guy behind the GMs desk. More Junior C teams should be run by younger blood. It’s a great opportunity for younger people to get invol...

The team is 4-10-3-1, sitting in 2nd last place, battling with St. Marys and to some extent, the Rockets, in the basement. So I will ask - Is it working in Komoka? How has attendance been?
