Totally agree with that. The cost of my equipment shouldn't have an impact on the fees I pay. There are guys on my team with 15-year-old gear and $15 wood sticks, and there are guys with $600 skates and $300 composite sticks. Both pay the same league fees.
Reliability is why I think goalies get a discount on fees, or free league play altogether. We *have* to play, or find a sub. Personally, I like paying 50%... still paying toward the team but also getting some respect for always putting my team first and personal affairs second.
Again, I'm paying 100% this year and I have no qualms with it, because I've been with this group of guys for a while. Probably wouldn't pay 100% to play with a team of strangers. It's the difference between giving $20 to a stranger or $20 to a friend. You can disagree with it, fine, but this is my opinion.
