Quote from: Rob on June 18, 2020, 08:59:02 PMI don't doubt it. This has been going on for many years. I knew a few guys that played in the OHL over 30 years ago, some going on to the NHL. The stories they would tell were truly bat shit crazy.
Quote from: Nik on June 18, 2020, 09:18:06 PMIt wouldn't surprise me. Besides what we already know about the culture of hazing in the sport it's always just seemed like a bad environment. The idea that a league of 16 to 18 year olds needs competitive balance to the point where those kids need to move away from home and have minimal adult supervision is, on its face, kind of a bad idea.

QuoteOntario Hockey League Commissioner David Branch today announced that Niagara IceDogs General Manager, Team Governor and minority owner Joey Burke and Head Coach and minority owner Billy Burke have been indefinitely suspended and, together with the team, fined a combined $150,000.00. An investigation was launched into their overall conduct following the League receiving transcripts of a March 6, 2022 WhatsApp conversation.Based on the results of the League investigation, it is the position of the League that their conduct is prejudicial to the welfare of the OHL as it violates the Leagues' Harassment & Abuse / Diversity Policy and also runs counter to the OHL's Onside program which emphasizes the importance of demonstrating respect for women through actions and words.
