Unfortunately, not all of them have testicles (metaphoric one's, not picking on Denise). Most are content to at least have big name players as opponents and won't rock the boat to insist they play where they are drafted. Branch would rather send them all to one or two teams rather than risk them playing outside the OHL. The next commish should get orders from all the owners, play by our rules or don't bother us.

Origin

Here's another good word: integrity. I suspect not only is it not in the vocabulary, the dictionary is missing that page.

Perhaps better coaching, as apparently these young players feel they will be better served going elsewhere. It is their future after all.

Honestly, what 16 year old would want to play for a Sudbury, or a Flint, or a.......the list goes on.

Don’t kid yourself, all these kids want to play for a London or an Oshawa. Let’s be honest here.

Groundhog Day on this form.


Honestly.

Life is not about always getting what you want.

You get dealt a raw hand in life, deal with it properly, and become a better person in the long run.

Life is about saying something and then following through and committing to your word. Nothing worse than someone who says one thing and does the other.

It’s comical that Stinky justifies what these kids and their agents do. I find it deplorable.

Win at all cost I suppose eh Stinky?

If the league had any balls at all they would change the rules ... but they don’t ...

So the status quo goes on and the same bullsh*t will happen again and again.

Way to teach these kids that they should get everything they want in life and that your word means nothing ...

End of rant

Being as Fishfan deleted his message, I tried to delete this message but it did not delete, therefore. That's all there is... LOL

These kids should be made to play for the team that drafted them. It is an honor to be drafted by an OHL team and if these kids are that spoiled they should remember that without the teams in the OHL they would be going nowhere.

You have a nice thought there, but, I believe that you would have a very hard time convincing Mommy, Daddy and last but not least, the player...
Remembering that every parent is sure that their boy will play in the show someday.

I'm not a big fan of picking one team or bust but if my kid was a sure fire OHLer there's teams in this league I wouldn't want him on. There's no way I'd advise him to sign with Sudbury if he was slated to go first overall that's for sure. These kids have skills that are marketable and I'm sorry but I can't fault them for not wanting to go certain places.
