I do not have a kid in this league by the way so I have no axe to grind here
thanks for the clarification - I totally agree with your expanded comments. the games do seem to be an ego stroke at the expense of kids, made even more ridiculous by staging a peewee all star game not involving all teams in the league. the selections can be debated forever, who really cares? the decision to play the games in the first place, and then during playoffs, is what is the most puzzling. i can't imagine scouts would be interested, with other leagues in playoffs, and it would be terrible if an 'all star' was accidentally hurt playing a game with 'no point'....
