    **** sucks i dont like chasing people for money should have cut dude off team earlier in the season. Ive learned my lesson next season everyone pays at first game if not no ice time. Also gonna cut back on subs. Subs play free if you paid team fee. We had some guys sub whole season just cause they where good players. Thinking about it that aint fair for everyone that pays. People arent here **** it more ice time for those that are. Or should i welcome help from outside players?

    Yup, I agree with Jammer. Ass, grass or cash, no one rides for free.

    Ok this isn't even a humble brag more of a "birthing of an internet legend" post.

    Been talking with minijammer about his mite team and how his teammates and he are doing and he's gushing about them getting better. So I ask him if he thinks he's getting better and he stares at me blankly, he genuinely has no idea if he is or isn't. So he asks me if he is and I tell him he should ask the coach about what he should work on when he gets a chance if he wants to get better. Fast forward to his last game which he really played well, got the team prize (WWE championship belt) for being the best player and so forth. I'm in front of him stuffing stuff in his bag helping him get undressed (yeah he's wearing the belt, its making it harder) when coach comes by to give his usual post game encouragements for each player and minijammer looks up and says "Coach what should I work on to get better?" Coach is floored, I'm head down trying not to giggle cuz I can tell mini has been worried about this conversation all game. Anyway pretty sure every parent in the room caught the exchange and minijammer is skyrocketing up the draft boards as we speak.

    I know I'm coming in to the thread pretty late, but where does everyone play?

    I play (until the season is over) Tuesday at HBInline (then will sub for them), Tuesday nights in Lakewood, Friday/Sat/Sun Lakewood, Fri/Sat sub in Artesia and Sunday night starting to sub 4v4 at TSC.

    I played ice at Lakewood on Sunday afternoons, but took a couple seasons off. I then played Monday nights at Artesia, that season just ended, team decided not to come back...classic beer league scenario. I also played a few seasons of roller-daddy at HB Inline, but the team went from Monday nights to Thursday nights, and I can't do Thursdays.

    I'm just a has-been now.
