What I'm hoping for is more rinks / leagues to offer an over-40 division for us fossils, though I did play with a few guys last week in their mid-40s who were stupendous...
I am in no way the most talented guy on my team but my point was more that the guy on my team always had an an excuse or criticism and was the least talented guy on the team. He often directly contributed to goals against or a loss. He's a line killer. If I was a good enough friend of his I would definetly have sat him down and suggested he played at a lower level. He played on the team for about 3 years and NEVER got better at any aspect of the game and worst at most.
