Default OHL findings Niagara Ice Dogs

I saw an image of the group chat it is on 610cktb website or Twitter feed

Its hard to read everything because some names are blocked out

But geez if that gets you a two year ban, wtf kind of world do we live in. Oh wait a minute I just saw the C word tossed out right at the end by BB.

Then JB piles on, throwing some of their own staff under the bus. Yikes

Couldnt these two just have like picked up the phone and vented ? Lol. Guess that would have happened twenty years ago.

Part of me feels badly for them as this must be gut wrenching punishment to take ? Then part of me says that in this day and age it was bound to happen.

I wonder who leaked it, must be someone in that group chat . . .

We are devastated by the sanctions brought down upon us and the Niagara IceDogs by the Ontario Hockey League. Certain media outlets are taking liberties speculating on what was said and about whom. To be clear, we were venting in a private hockey staff WhatsApp group chat about the perceived lack of coverage from the league after a win. Unfortunately, we did use profane language, but it was not racial in any sense, nor was it abusive or directed at any IceDogs staff member (male or female) or any players. Embarrassed by our text, we deleted the message right away and apologized directly to our female staff for a vulgar slang word that was used. We also apologized to everyone involved in the chat for the language and tone, long before we knew the chat was leaked. It should also be noted that in the 14 years that we have worked for the team, we have never had a complaint brought against us for any inappropriate language or behaviour towards any staff or player. Although we are heartbroken, we understand that our positions within the team and the community should have held us to a higher moral standard and for that we are truly sorry. We take great pride in the diverse makeup of our team and our alumni, and we have always strived to create a safe and respectful environment both inside the dressing room and the office as well. We are very proud of the team that we’ve put together and have all faith that this team will be competing for the Memorial Cup in 2 years and we wish our players, staff and all IceDogs fans nothing but success.
Ooops... Rule #1 in responding to a scandal, apologize first! This reads more like a condemnation of the OHL rules and penalties, excuse making and rationalization, rather than contrition.

Going down kicking and fighting. Admitting that we screwed up is apparently not in their vocabulary. HM..

Part of the statement read: "nor was it abusive or directed at any IceDogs staff member (male or female) or any players."

I'm sure many of have seen the conversation by now. Joey says ******* **** named Nikki! Enough of this **** she is a bigger *** then our horse**** scouting staff[/b]"

I guess the scouting staff isn't a member? I guess "***" is racial, but pretty homophobic.

Shameful, sell and get out of town. You've embarrassed the Niagara hockey community on a National level twice now.

Does anyone have a link to the screenshot of the conversation. Apparently the unedited version is now on Twitter.

LMAO. It wasn't racist, just misogynistic and homophobic.
That wasn't an apology.
That was them trying to justify themselves to ticket buying fanbase.
No dice.

Damn, now they might need an apology for the apology.

Oh well. I did love the forward looking part at the end and clearly they are looking at the team peaking in two years.
