GOJHL Board

Post by Letterkenny68 » Tue Jun 11, 2019 7:07 am

I understand a new board has formed to oversee the GOJHL. Also heard the new board is actively looking for a new commissioner. Hopefully this is all for the best.

What's wrong with the current Commissioners? I don't know Greg Best, but Mark Tuck does a good job.
Queen of the GOJHL

Sometimes you just have to straighten your crown and remind them who they're dealing with.

I am not passing judgement on anything or anyone. It's just news I had heard. I have no idea what it all means. Just hope nothing but good comes from the change.

Someone has to protect the players from a few of these self serving owners hope meaningful changes are made?

The floor has been mopped with the GOJHL the past few months! There are more important things than "protecting" the players.

Blow this thing up, and replace the decision-makers within the GOJHL as it appears they continue to make head-scratching decisions!!

Head-scratching decisions....

1.) Website..still waiting for something...ANYTHING that does this league, it's players and it's fans justice
2.) Decision to look towards the GTA to expand...rather than in an area void of "B" or "A" hockey! Opportunity was there for 5-6 teams at potentially 50k apiece..instead...offered up a $150k pricetag as a fee! Now...they are out a critical 4th conference AND they have allowed the OJHL to establish the footprint!
3.) Decision to allow Executive of the OHA to make decisions not in the best interests of the game, but for others members of the OHA Boards best interests. Executive are supposed to be impartial decision-makers and not throw support behind one member and not the other!

Time has come for this league to decide what they want to be. Do they want to make decisions that will benefit this league and its participants or do they want to just continue to be dunked and rinsed like a good mop should! Once upon a time, this league was good....VERY good! It provided players with opportunities to excel to the next level. Now, it seems that they have been relegated to ugly step-person (being politically correct for once and not using specific pronouns). Sometimes decisions need to be made. Some of those decisions may seem uncomfortable or, more importantly, unorthodox, but nevertheless, those decisions need to be made to send a clear message!

And no...my name is not Joe Daniels! :P

Thanks. I had no idea. I found it interesting about the 4-5 locations to expand to. I figured Collingwood, but what other locations would be a good spot for JR B teams.

Collingwood...Orillia...heard interest from a Private School....Fergus possible...Orangeville possible...Alliston possible...Shelburne possible

All that was needed was to set aside a $150k pricetag! When Collingwod jumped at the $150k offered by the GOJHL, it effectively killed it! The league could have had a critical 4th Conference, established the footprint, and had an extra $300k in the bank! The league should not determine what the value of a franchise is...that should be supply and demand. I go back to Cambridge and the OHA looking to sell after Machado was gone...were there any takers?

You need people in these positions with a clear vision for the league. I just don't see it with anyone in a leadership role within the GOJHL.
