There might be more to the story, as high school hockey can be political, but maybe he's just a bitter backup.

Unless I'm out of the loop, I doubt he'd have any plans to play hockey after high school to begin with.
I was thinking there has to be more to this story too. My biggest question would be was he in a position to further his playing career in terms of a scholarship. From personal experience it's possible to be a scapegoat of sorts as a result of someone else's political motives. Happened to me but I never gave thought of doing something like this.

I'm hesitant to call him a loser without knowing the complete story other than what's in the blog. Hopefully he'll understand down the road what he did and become a better person because of it. Looks like a lot of bitterness there though for whatever reason. Something more here I say.
