essentially, a minor pro hockey player who couldn't cut it, taking his frustrations out on some local hacks... b.s.

-following season, same team colluding to bring in an ex-division 1 varsity practice goalie (other ringer's teammate from college)-- claimed he was a 'defenceman' then debuted with 2 consecutive shutouts.

fwiw, this sham cheater team wins the league championship EVERY year.

-commissioner who fellates any Canadians who sign up, yet treats existing U.S.-born players like crap.

-guys who wear 99 and 66 (guy who wears 66 is at least skilled; 99? not so much)

-team-obligated ref duties, 90% of whom have no idea how to interpret the rulebook; have zero idea what they're calling; too afraid to whistle the various big mouths for 10-min misconducts because they don't want to get yelled at.


again, this is all a local rec ball hockey league.

it used to be waaaaaaay better about 10 yrs ago before it began taking itself so seriously, before they alienated a large chunk of the league's charter members, when it was about chugging beers, next-goal wagering and spinning fatties.
My ballhockey league is more or less the same. (PTM in Laval) I love playing there though, except for the occasional as***** who crosschecks you in the back or slashes you on the ankle when the ref isnt watching.

Some refs can't control a hockey game there and they let fights start because they can't call cheap shots that happened right in front of them...

But they mostly so a good job...

Anyway, just my 2 cents

My personal list:

Shoulder Pads in non contact mens league. We all played D1 or close, we dont need shoulder pads on robocop.
Full Outfit matching with Eagle gloves. Any gloves other than Eagle and you are safe.
Combo Face masks or Full Shields.
Tinted Visors...
Butt end tape that comes half way down the shaft. This isnt Field Hockey Clown Shoe
Skate Tongues hanging out. Easy out there Alexei Zhitnik
Jersey sleeves folded up over the elbows. Chris Drury is good, You are not.

If you chirped me for wearing shoulder pads, i'd find it pretty pathetic. Honestly. Shoulder pads? Usually in no contact leagues, you have morons who think they can pick the top corner everytime.

I'll wear all my equipment so the moron doesn't put a shot into my open chest.

One thing I chirp about is we'll occasionally play pickup ball hockey at the local deck. All the time, this team will show up and demand that we get off the deck and that they are this exclusive team, which is a joke.

This team, consist of the 5 dollar Mylec shin pads. Batting gloves being used for their gloves, and cheap $20 sticks from the local sporting goods store.

Honestly. Your not a exclusive team when you play hockey in a pair of Jordan Batting Gloves or NFL WR gloves

I guess here its just common theme here since no one wears them. People I dont know chirp people for the same thing its pretty funny. 90% of players since we got out of college havent put them on for anything. I left mine back in NY when I moved down to florida. Havent put them on in 4 years

^ I wear my shoulder pads despite playing non-contact only because I've broken one of my collar bones twice. Obviously, they can break with the pads on (I mean, it happened to me both times in games while wearing them) but I'd rather have them on than take a chance because breaking a collar bone sucks.


Honestly, the only thing I ever chirped was in response to the stupid things some guys say when they try to act tough. It's amazing how poorly people speak when they get in the heat of it. Might as well be Elmer Fudd or Porky Pig.

Played against a guy last night who was wearing a full shield but not strapped down, just jammed up in J clips. I didn't know what was going on at first, it was so weird.

I agree. If someone thinks being extra cautious because others are wreckless and try to play like it's NHL Playoff time is stupid, then screw em.

We all know a couple people who are a bit too into the game at low level and we have to watch for them when we're out there. I'd rather wear full gear and not need it than not have it and like you said, take a puck to the chest and regret not having extra gear on.

The fact is, if the impact is bad enough, you're going to get a concussion no matter what helmet it is. A kid on my team hadn't ever gotten a concussion before, switched to the m11 for even further protection, and got a consussion no more than a couple months later.

No. All these rules about "chirping" apply to criticism of other players at your level.

If you see someone wearing the number 66 in your local house league, have at it. But if you live in suburban Pittsburgh and it occurs to you when he picks up the puck that it is, in fact, Mario, the chirping stops.

As soon as you're playing for a team called "Canada" or "United States" or "Sweden" then you can call those kids out. Until you do, if anyone's going to make fun of Nazim Kadri and Brayden Schenn for wearing those, let it be the latter's older brother, or somebody else who can play hockey at their level. None of these "chirping" rules apply to us chirping at World Juniors players.

Thanks for clearing that up. At least now I know that there are specific rules governing all this childish stupidity.

That's all relative. Every level has terrible players. Unless you're in the top tier of the NHL you're subject to chirping for being terrible.

Ugh, the guy I get a ride with to my league games has literally never washed his equipment and he doesn't shower after games. So gross. You can smell him out on the ice.

There's a beer league team that wears PINK (Beach Bums) jerseys. They really don't get chirped at much, can't help your assigned color. However we do teasingly refer to it as the Baby Shower game when they play against LIGHT BLUE (Bud Light). I guess its comical for about 30 seconds. I think I have a picture, I may have to look for it.

Why the league selected Pink as a teams color option I'm not sure. I know color options run thin once you get to 10-12 teams... but damn.

It is my hatred for Gretzky when he played that I despise the turtleneck. When he started wearing those EVERYONE around here started to and I got very annoyed and ... sniff .... it left scars. I don't even think Gretzky wore them that long either.

This is so much simpler than making a list of all the gear that will get you "chiped at". Just follow these two rules:

1. If you're spending more money on the gear than your actual weekly time on ice justifies, it will probably get you chirped at (ie. wearing $600 skates when you skate once or twice a week maximum).

2. If you're wearing a piece of gear, be it a a $220 stick or colored laces, that makes you stand out but you're not a standout player, it will get you chirped at.

Essentially, if you're playing at a level - of pickup, bear league, etc - where everyone is wearing $200 mid-line skates, don't go buy the newest top of the line Bauers.

If you aren't going to be the guy who shows up and dominates from the time he steps on the ice until he leaves (which usually is annoying and gets you chirped at behind your back, but that's a different story) than don't show up with a tinted visor or custom runners on your skates.
