It's not a job for an average guy that loves hockey and decides he wants to quit being an electrician and start watching junior hockey games for a living.
Why do people have to make such ignorant comments. The guy asked a simple, legit question.

So answer me this then, I've played AAA bantam, AAA midget, junior A and university hockey. I've coached AAA midget for 4 years now, and have worked with the Hamilton Bulldogs, getting the opportunity to meet several NHL scouts, but I don't know how to get involved in becoming a scout. So you're going to tell me that I don't have the background or connections for the position? I have plenty of background and a high degree of knowledge about the game, enough to scout, but I don't know the process to get involved.

Honestly, people need to give it a rest and just offer advice to the guy if you have it.
