I see no need to explain it. When my kid tries to pull the "...but Billy has one..." angle on me, I put on my best sympathetic/sad face and say, "Yeah. Billy's parents must REALLY love him."

He usually rolls his eyes and sighs, but he gets the point.

Another option is, "With all the league fees, equipment, etc., this is the stick I'm willing to buy. If it makes you that unhappy, we should think about whether playing hockey is right for you."
