Yet another goalie, and this one plays for Brantford 99ers.

My biggest worry with our potential new owner is we see that team come up a lot in both the normal draft and the U18

Suddenly, you're worried about nepotism? How ironic.

Never said I wasn’t worried before now did I? All I said was give the boys one more shot at it then go from there

You basically made excuses for every stupid thing they did. That pretty much indicates you weren't.

So you assume things because I gave my opinion on certain things that you and other people on here don’t like/agree cause they hate the boys (now with good reason) I’ll still do the same for the new coach and GM if I think they deserve it and I always say what I think so if I’m worried/not worried I’ll say it 😂

No, you made excuses and blamed other posters for calling them out. You often said, people are just saying that "just because it was the owners kids". When people screamed how inept they were and only held jobs because of nepotism, you were ok with it.

Now you're afraid that a new owner might pay special attention to a few kids on another team he owns?

Explain the difference.

I'm not saying I'm ok with it either way. I think both ways are trash. Get the best players and management you can regardless of connection or bloodline.

Yes and I believe that if they weren’t the owners kids they wouldn’t get as much crap as they did from posters again just my opinion I’m not stupid I know why they had the jobs but was willing to give them one more kick at the can because IMO weather it was Billy or another HC our last team to “go for it” wasn’t good enough. I guess I wouldn’t be as concerned if this guys teams had a decent track record but they don’t so the first thing I think of is if they can’t do it there what makes you think they’ll be any good here

This is a concern of mine as well. I'm hoping it's an ownership "group" that he'll have to answer to. I'm also hoping it's not a new toy for a rich guy who wants to be the GM and pretend it's a fantasy hockey team for fun. Or can't recognize he's over his head like the last two.

If they were not the owners kids, and they had the same experience that they have (zero), the. They would not have been in those positions to have been criticized because they would not have been hired

So they deserved the criticism that was lobbed at them by virtue of the fact that they only got the jobs cuz of nepotism

And generally I did not mind JB as GM I mean he made some mistakes every GM does. I often wondered if he was Blacksox tbh lol

Apparently JB (by his own admission) did not know how to hire a scouting staff. Lol

BB on the other hand I could not stand and he was in over his head IMO and may have cost us a legit shot at a championship
