It bothers me because I love this sport and know a lot of people in it. All people talk about is needing everybody's effort in making it known. I hate when people ask me, "Do you play ice hockey?" I have to say no roller hockey. They ask, "Is that played with rollerblades and a ball?" I want to kill myself when I hear that.
I think it is hurting the sport so much when you kick kids out of playing competitive roller hockey. I understand you may need to do it for incoming people to get a chance to play. If you didn't have that 5 year rule, you will have more competitive teams and more "B" teams. For schools to establish B teams that would help the sport so much. More people will be playing and more people will know about roller hockey.
I would just like some feedback on people's feelings on the rule. I wasnt made aware of it until a few months ago and it bugged me.
