The main posters on this forum (and you know who you are) are a cancer! I have read comments made on this forum quietly over the past couple years and remained silent, but I am silent no more. You are all entitled to your opinions, and yes you may at times have reason for frustration towards what you see on the ice. But your outright negativity towards this young team and cruel criticism of KIDS is truly very, very sad! It is people like you that prove North Bay is not truly a hockey community, but rather a bunch of harsh critics when times are tough and a bunch of band wagon jumpers when things are good. So many of your comments are uninformed as you truly have NO idea what is going on behind the scenes with the team and the players. No, I am not employed by the team, but I have billeted for 7 years and you have ZERO idea what sacrifices these kids and their families make. There are definitely challenges for an OHL team to operate in a small Northern Ontario market as many of you have noted, but our city has been given a second chance. There will not EVER be a third chance!!! And god help you when the Battalion are gone because some of you will need to find something else to ***** about. I guess it won’t be about OHL hockey.
