I personally know a long-time billet who told me that she was not returning this year because the demands on her family to manage their nutrition and the responsibility to keep close tabs of the players in terms of school and their whereabout got to be too much for her – and did not return as a billet this year.
Sorry to hear that the team lost a long time billet for the above reasons, but, that sounds a hell of a lot better to me than the other billets information.

Guess it depends on which billet you are talking about. There have been some billets who have provided a room and instructions on how to use the appliances. Perhaps that is why some are getting out. The ones I am referring to used to get phone calls from the team asking to speak to the player at curfew time, now when players miss curfew, the billet is expected to call in and if they do, "well, boys will be boys". The comments were unsolicited and the speaker was unaware of my connection here.

That is EXACTLY the type of billet I am talking about - receiving call and being responsible to account for their whereabouts. I obviously can’t mention names of specific player from the past but this particular billet's experience with past players was mostly good, but did tell me of some stressful stories about having to go out and retrieve players. She never got "boys, will be boys" from the IceDogs. She spent a few evening driving around Niagara in search of her lost dog.
