Is that why they moved the AAA games to Friday night? In hopes someone would show up...

From I witnessed over the past years. Single "A" is the party. AA the passout. "AAA" the hangover. I know what I would attend. Looks like the party is going to be the middle of the day this year.

I have been to a lot of both A and AAA games and when I go to most A games I leave early or I have nowhere to sit. AAA games not so much. So its pretty evident where the crowd is at

T-Ball, that isn't perfect, but it is the best option that I have heard so far.

I like it too Tball , It may give the #1 seed a little more advantage only having to play one game but it reduces the possibility of a non-competitive #3/4 seed game.

Now that this is out of the way this is a little more complicated then this. If I've got an injured kid/hurt kid I wouldn't play them in an exhibition game if we had an important league game coming up. So I think coaches need to be allowed to make those sorts of decisions without people accusing them of cheating or doing unethical things. You also have to keep in the mind the kid factor here too. Coaches want to win, fans want to win. Teenagers are terrible on a given day for any number of reasons. If they are smart enough to have figured out they avoid someone and don't have focus or desire that can play a huge piece too. As coach of a team who lost both games after winning their first one at regionals I can tell you that I may be focused and want the win but teenagers can be a dog's breakfast anyway. We were awful in the semi's and in the 3/4 game. They were read the riot act at numerous points and there were lots of tears and tough talk but it didn't make a bit of difference on game day.

You don't build a culture of winning by losing. You play to win the game.

In terms of fixes. Play interlocked schedules and avoid needing a regional all together.

Direct quote from the website:


"In school sports, we win if we develop winners. We may very well lose if all we care about is winning".  


How about we just play the game?

PostSubject: Inter locking schedules   Fri Feb 14, 2014 12:17 am

By having an interlocking schedule if you dont finish in the top 4 your season your is done. Being a 5th place team you dont deserve to go to playoffs. As far as I am concerned both the north east and the south west should be interlocking. If you only have three teams in your division it should automatically be interlocking. We made 5 trips to Moncton and didnt complain because it was a good challenge for the boys. As a team I think we learned what it will take to compete at a higher level. Next year we should be alot better because we played those teams this year.

More evidence from some of today's scores that something needs to be done with the 3/4 game.
