It's tough trying to control teenagers, I don't know how you manage adult offspring.

BBJr and JB have attracted controversy to the IceDogs and they have had a series of bad years due to their ineptitude, but the franchise is not destroyed. It is still a very strong franchise. Niagara is a "hockey town" and the Meridian Centre is the perfect facility to host an OHL team. With a different management group the team could return to success and without controversy overnight.

The franchise has likely doubled in value from when the Burkes bought it, so it will end up being a good investment and the fans will continue to bring it to the next level.

I sincerely hope the Burkes (B&D) stay in the area and try a different venture and continue to support the community.

Has anyone looked at the win-lose record of the 2 teams that DeDobbelaer owns. Wow they are bad. Here are the win percentages by season:

Jr. B Brantford Bandits
2013-2014 .214
2015 .194
2016 .310
2017 .270
2018 .330
2019 .260
2020 .170
2022 .208

Jr. A Brantford 99ers
2017-2018 .102
2019 .398
2020 .546
2022 .435

As well DeDobbelaer is currently the GM of both teams.

It’s also interesting that when DeDobbelaer bought the Milton Jr A Hockey team, the OHA originally denied the sale of the team to him: https://www.mykawartha.com/community...-to-brantford/

Then the OHA finally approved his purchase of the Milton Jr A hockey team with the condition the team remains in Milton: https://www.hamiltonnews.com/communi...lton-icehawks/

The next season he moved the team to Brantford but the move was denied by the OHA and despite having played training camp in Brantford, the OHA refused to send officials to their first game. This forced the team to stay in Milton for another season: https://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/sp...tponed-updated

However on October 21, the OHA and OJHL announced the relocation of the team back to Brantford and the team became the Brantford 99ers. So I guess he got the team moved to Brantford even though the OHA didn’t want it.

Might even be bad enough for some to come to the conclusion that the Burkes are not so bad after all.

As I cautioned before, watch out what you wish for...

I have said this frequently be careful what you wish for, sometimes the devil you know is better than the devil you do not know

I mean I was totally fine with Burkes as the owners, their worst decision was to hand the reigns to the bozos.

At this point in time it is not as if we can do anything about who it is sold to, other than pray to the hockey gods that we have had enough bad karma with this franchise !

Made it past 1 pm and no news. You would think an announcement in the morning would be the preferred time.
