I found what the coach said in the second half of the tape most interesting. He touches on the backroom deals that do happen from minor atom to minor midget. The types of hockey parents he mentions in the first half are in the open and seen in arenas everywhere and eventually their child becomes a "parent cut" , but some do get adversely affected to make room for the kid who has a parent willing to pay a financial bribe or the mom willing to do sexual favors to secure their child a spot or secure better ice time or get placed on a draft list. It isn't rampant but it does happen and it does cause more damage to a team than the parent misconduct in the stands that everyone sees
The Simon Cowell of the GOJHL.
