Lets all relax
Ladies and Gentlemen,
First of all I am going to quote Ruppy Hailey from another thread but I want each and everyone of you to think about what I have to say before responding.
We all need to relax and take a chill pill. As Ruppy said there will be problems with either league. Instead of jumping all over each other we need to be at peace. The inline hockey world is being torn apart as we have all drawn lines in the sand. I am spending numerous time off from the game I love due to some personal issues. We all need to sit back and stop bashing each other. The children who are our future are not going to want to be involved with this sport at the top level of the adult game because we can not behave like adults.

Message to the AIHL PEOPLE: Stay off of the threads relating to PIHA. There is no need to comment on any of their issues as we all know they have their problems but they need to be able to handle them with out constant blasting.

Everybody at some point made a choice. I for one did and will be handling it myself the way I feel is necessary in my life. We all make choices and go down certain roads. Some of the choices we all have made recently have ripped friendships apart and there are people who use to talk to each other weekly that will not even give each other the time of day.
Some of the people I have a lot of respect on here for have taken some shots at others below the belt including myself. Lets all grow up and act like adults and be role models for our future the kids.
The world of inline hockey is small as it is and from hearing from an outsiders opinion last night when I was reading the stuff on hear they made me reflect.
The person I was sitting and discussing this with was my wife. We discussed our future and when we have children would they be playing organized sports and what not. The first thing she said is if the inline hockey world doesn't get a clue about whats important the kids our children will never be playing in this sport. Unfortunately I have to agree with her on this and it sickens me to say that.
So I am asking you all to take your gloves and put them on. Hold hands and have a group hug. Whatever it is necessary to bring peace back to the world of inline hockey.
Take a look at the Nightmare-Lunatics thread. The sanctioning question came up and they all said it was just about playing hockey. Remember those words guys. ITS JUST ABOUT PLAYING HOCKEY. Don't ruin it while you still have the chance.
Im back and I will not be sitting around on my butt!
I also love the morons that are still on the board.
