These are the facts. One player on the 05 Gulls admitted in writing to retaliating against a member of the 03 LI Edge team that was bullying several members of the Gulls team. This one Gulls player acted alone and admitted as much, but the NYS Hockey association suspended 5 others that were in the locker room prior. These 5 players are all appealing as they had nothing to do with what the single Gulls player did. The main focus of the investigation has been safety in the locker room as well as the act of one, individual player. These are the facts as these are all 14 year old boys, only those with facts should be commenting or concerned with this.
Well! We have someone who seems to have first-hand knowledge! Cute how you've been sort of lurking in the shadows during this discussion, but we are happy you've walked into the light. Just a couple of questions and one statement. 1) when you say "retaliate" do you mean he took a dump and pee'd in a player's bag instead of going to a coach or parent to address any issues that were taking place? 2) In terms you as a source, are you the parent of the dumper or player 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6? Very clear you have a dog in this fight. There just feels like there's something missing regarding the story of 2-6 Did they egg 1 on then leave? Encourage him? There's more to the explanation that's not being told for them to be suspended 3) The main focus of the investigation was not on only one player since 6 were suspended. And in terms of player safety, they need to broaden that investigation to every single team in USAH. The locker rooms can be a very unsafe place.
