The idea that a student-hockey player has a 'job' an is being $500 to turn off the lights at the gym is quite ludicrous and would sure be unacceptable if true.
Uh...what is the "It" that makes "one wonder"?, did I miss something here? A student athlete is entitled to work at the university as well, that is above board in addition to the articles Foyle mentioned. In my time, they filled out casual employment forms, as employees of the university. These were for jobs in the gym, front desk, even the team equipment guys. Furthermore, I fail to see why someone would be "rumbling" about earning money at university, unless rumbling means something other than what I understand. You're either crediting MacDougall or accusing him of recruiting malfeasance, which is it? No, it cannot be both.
Sit down with guys who have been through the system. Notable players.
Lastly, these two, and a few others on here have seen 1000 players through not only UNB, but the conference, no need for them to hear it from anyone.
