Well I live in the fact-based world MiamiHockey, so until you actually have some facts to back your obviously biased opinions, I'm just going to try my best to ignore your ramblings.

As for Holly, he makes very valid points. While most teams, and varsity programs, are always strapped for cash there is no doubt that "friend of programs" organizations (called boosters in the NCAA) are helping out players financially or in-kind. It is impossible to track and difficult to police. Several years ago a friend and co-worker was renting out his basement apartment to a couple of varsity hockey players and their rent money, in cash, was supplied by "friends of the team." No doubt this is happening across the CIS.
