View Full Version : Week 9 scores

Wow!. Marples bench is deeper than I thought. A big win with half a team. Any other scores to post? Nothing yet on league site.
12-14-2003, 02:48 PM
From what I hear, the Bullets had half a team also
12-14-2003, 03:10 PM
By the looks of their roster it looks like they had a full team minus Kull. Does anybody know why the Bullets are protesting the game? I noticed it on the bottom of the game sheet.

I'm just guessing but it looks like Marple didn't have the required number of skaters for the game. I think the rule is that 12 skaters and two goalies need to be rostered for the home team. Trust me, I could care less either way. The Bullets should have taken advantage of the short roster Marple had and came away with the W. On the other hand, props to Marple for beating them with a short bench.
Real professional atmosphere in this league. Teams cannot even dress a full squad for a game.

I play on the Bullets and I didn't even know the game was under protest. I am not sure of the minimum dressed player requirement, but the reason for the protest may be due to the fact that the officials inexplicably made the major penalties for the fight only 3 minutes. At the time the score was 10-7 Glads and they were facing the final 6:16 without Tracy. The officials told our captain that both players in the fight had a minor a major and a 10 minute misconduct. After a 2 minute discussion at the Glads bench, it was changed to 3 minutes in penalties each. Please don't get me wrong, I am not saying this had an effect either way on the outcome of the game, but the calls were horribly blown by the officials. As far as missing players goes, we were missing 4 of our top players, but that does not match the talent that the Glads were missing. We did not play up to our full potential and blew a tremendous opportunity to defeat a depleted Glads team. Full marks to the Glads for getting the players that they did and playing a well enough to win.

Having played for Marple in that game, I am fairly certain that the issue wasn't the Glads roster depth, there was no shortage of players or goalies.
12-14-2003, 10:53 PM
Well by looking at the gamesheet for that game on the MLRH web site, there is a roster issue. From what we understood from the league it was mandatory to dress 12 skaters and 2 goalies for each HOME game, 14 players total. Now that gamesheet only has 10 players and 2 goalies for Marple. Me personally I could really care less but that's why the league puts out rules.
Does anyone else have any info. on this matter?

Didn't your Mom ever tell you that if you didn't have something nice to say, then keep your trap shut? Listen, most of the guys in this league do not live to play hockey. We have families, jobs, commitments and other priorities. It goes like this, family, job, responsibilities, hockey. If I miss a game because of something else going on that is more important, say my son's birthday party, trust me, I'm not at home feeling bad that you are not being made to feel complete. Tell me, have you ever missed a hockey game in your life? All right then. Now go to bed and start listen to your Mommy.

i think its bs n dont care but ur right tho rules r rules

Here is what I found in the MLRH Rule Book:
Rule 9 ? Composition of Team
(a) A roller hockey team will consist of a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 14 players including two
(2) goal keepers.
This would make 10+2 a valid roster.
According to the MLRH website the beef is about the 3 minute calls as mentioned elsewhere in this thread.

Not sure what happened with the fighting majors, but having experience with the small number of players on the rosters, the game can be played as long as the teams agree to play beforehand, and the refs ok it with the league. We did this last year against the Bullets.
12-15-2003, 12:49 PM
If that is the case you should not call yourself a professional... because you don't act or play like one... and a professional athlete would not skip a game hear and there whenever they feel like it... sorry... hate to brake it to you but your not professional...
12-15-2003, 01:01 PM
are you kidding me?
Sorry buddy, but every player in this league has other priorities ABOVE hockey. Certain things take precedence over playing a game.
ESPECIALLY because we are not being paid to play.
It's not un-proefessional to have your priorities straight. It IS unprofessional to not show up when you just 'dont feel like it', but most of the time, thats not the case.
I've only missed 2 games in 2 years, both last year. One due to stiches in my head which I'd rather not have busted open (couldn't wear a helmet with them anyways)
and once because of a family matter.
Does that make me unprofessional?

o.k. The glads won respectfully with half a team, and the bullets didn't take advantage, so congrats to the glads for proving their 2nd team is just as amazing as their first..
12-15-2003, 04:59 PM
Hey thanks Ben, like I said I wasn't sure of the rule because the rule book states one thing and I was told another, thanks again.

lol... I don't know about all that, but we certainly held our own.
12-15-2003, 05:46 PM
Well put Moo. Until any pro league becomes a player's main source of income, no one should be expected to make 100% of games. However, there certainly are cases which piss me as an owner off, like phone calls the day of a game that someone has flyers tickets ect. Obligations vs other alternate plans is a thin line between being responsible and dedicated versus just playing when you want and not caring. I thought the Growl did a terrific job of judging players commitment level last season and responding appropriately.
That said, I'd love to here from other owners with stories of some of their favorite b.s. excuses for not coming to a game.
12-15-2003, 06:02 PM
Then your not an a professional. Professional athletes get paid, they show up unless its a complete tragedy (not to go to a flyers game or stitches in your head)... its an amateur league. You guys want to be professionals so bad but this is just a house league trying to act professional... and professionals dont cry all day in chat rooms...

My Fav was "I have tix + pit passes to the NASCAR race on Sat. Besides, my shoulder still hurts" When asked about Sunday's game (double weekend) the response was: "Oh yeah, I'm fine for Sunday!"
And then there was the bonehead who showed up with a left skate and a right shin pad. The game? MLRH National Championship 2002.
Of course, I must stress that I absolutely love the guys who are just gonna go, period. They love hockey and they want to play at the highest level they possibly can. And while they do have to miss a game here or there due to the "real" world, it usually pisses them off more than it pisses you (the owner/manager) off. I must add that the MLRH is full of these guys and I bet PIHA is as well.

That's why it is called AAA.
The players do notice that they don't get paid as they gobble down the pain killers and limp to work(or to the bar, or to church?????)but it is the closest thing to "real hockey" on wheels for many of these guys who play more for love of the game, and the comaraderie of the sport, than any glory or status.
The day may well come when lots of people are willing to pay to see this sport in it's MLRH form, and these players whom you seem to want to knock, are the guys who carry that torch for free.
Frankly I don't remember too many games that I begrudged plopping down my $5.00 or $6.00 to see. I do remember quite a few games where my $5.00 or $6.00 seemed like a bargain.

You have the right to your opinions, but keep it civil, please. Thank you.

Who ever said I was? Also, your telling me that there's nothing more important to you than hockey? If that's the case, kid, you need a life.
12-15-2003, 08:32 PM
Couldn't have said it better myself. Thanks for getting my back, again.
12-15-2003, 08:36 PM
You must be bed buddies with Milkman. Nobody in this league considers themselves Pro. We all know what Pro means. We play because we enjoy the game and the guys that play. Just because you're not playing, stop being a hater. Grow up kid.
12-15-2003, 08:38 PM
Hey Richard, I think this guy and Milkman are one and the same. You might want to consider revoking their privileges.
12-16-2003, 01:11 AM
Sorry Flynn, I can't post to this thread....... I am on-call today.
12-16-2003, 08:59 AM
if i'm missing a game, the entire time I'm doing whatever else, I'm in a completely bad mood because I'd rather be playing hockey.
Hell I wish the MLRH season was longer....
12-16-2003, 09:32 AM
As of today the gamesheet says they had 12 and 2 goalies. Could be that a player just never came out of the locker room. That does happen.
I have new info from the home office. They were waiting for correct numbers from Marple and put what they had at the time on the website. After the additional info arrived it was added. Nothing sneaky here, just not all the data on the first try.
<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by NLane on 12/16/03 09:15 AM.</EM></FONT></P>
don't you mean mouthpiece?:)
12-16-2003, 02:12 PM
Well I know that I was one of the players who was there and not originally on the scoresheet. I am sure they had to process my paperwork or whatever and then add me to the database, so I could be added to the game sheet.
12-16-2003, 02:14 PM
Naz I never had a problem with your need to be at work or on call because you always gave me pleanty of notice about it. Though you are a tough man to get a call back from.
12-16-2003, 02:35 PM
Just post here, then I don't have to account for cell phone time to my accounting dept. for usage during the day :)
12-16-2003, 02:46 PM
So your using IHC as an answering service, great idea! Maybe you can get your own Naz forum lol!
12-16-2003, 02:52 PM
hey don't revoke my privileges I just made it to "rostered player" lol
12-16-2003, 11:17 PM
The Bullets were minus an entire line. Kull, Fajardo, Stracuzzi from Mission Hotskates and Mike Dreheim from New York Nationals.
12-17-2003, 12:50 PM
So to put an end to all this who was missing crap. CJ Yoder, JD Davidson, Matt Denton, Steve and Brian Yingling, Scott Miller and myself were among those also. So now that this is all clear can we now focus on ahead instead of behind because that cant be changed.
Its just not fun unless you stand in front of it!
12-17-2003, 04:30 PM
Way to have confidence in the team you put out there!
Hey everyone on these team knows who can play and contribute, and probably would have liked to have their best producer(s) with them at all times too.
12-17-2003, 11:42 PM
Trust me, he doesn't have faith in ALL of his team
That's not what I said, nor what he implied.
