Thanks for the response, Poke. All in all, i don't think we're that far apart on the way we see things. In a perfect world, coaches will be upfront about their coaching philosphies and not "sell" kids on their program. As long as kids and parents know what to expect, they can make an informed decision and ask for a release or, as you mentioned, go to tier II. I remember one of the coaches last year at Zones telling the kids and parents that the first and last 5 minutes of the game were his, but otherwise he was going to roll the lines. Except for a couple of penalty parade periods, he pretty much lived up to his word and i know it was appreciated by the parents.
Anyway, you raised some good points. I always appreciate hearing interesting thoughts on the state of the game. Speaking of which, any thoughts on Zones this year?
