Over a year ago, Gatineau native Jacob Barrette started a petition that ended up with the Sens taking him up on a design team for the new heritage jerseys. However, the jerseys we regularly wear at home and on the road are still a THN.com league worst.
I plan to contact the sens about this after 1000 signatures (Barrette got 1800+), and will include my own concept and three others.
If you have one, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Glamorgan Board of Trustees has stated :
- that it is not an option for them to replace the current sports uniforms due to the cost;
- that from 2013 all students who represent the school in a sports team will need to purchase their own uniform.
The cost of these uniforms indicated by the Board of Trustees in the quarterly newsletter on November 2012 will range from $85 - $95, but these costs are indicative and have not been confirmed.
We believe that there are alternative ways to fund a 'set' of school uniforms. For example, fundraising, applying for grants, sponsorships etc. There are parents who are willing to assist in these processes.
Parents would also be willing to pay a 'rental' fee for uniforms which would recoup the cost of the uniforms over a few years.
Many families in Torbay are struggling financially. Currently registering for sports teams is a large expense especially when there is more than one child attending the school. Netball in particular has raised the cost of registering significantly. This could ultimately determine whether or not a child would sign up for a sport.
Eastcote Hockey Club has submitted a revised application (2414/APP/2012/2812 ) to LB Hillingdon to build a 2nd Astroturf floodlit, multisport pitch on their club grounds at Kings College Playing Fields Ruislip. This pitch will be used mainly for hockey & football similar to the existing pitch, with more than 50% of users being community non club members.
The second pitch will allow the club to play all its home games at the club on Saturdays, carry out midweek training and accommodate all of the youth coaching and matches at the club on a Sunday to cope with the ever-increasing number of youngsters who want to join in. It will also be used by local junior and adult football clubs for 6-a-side games during weekday evenings. The 2nd pitch would also be available to local schools
Ruislip Rangers Football Club will continue to use the grass pitches for junior football and the running track will be refurbished and maintained by the club in the future for unrestricted free community use.
The new artificial pitch provides more than 5 times more sports playing capacity than the traditional single grass pitch it replaces. This increase of sporting facilities entirely supports government ambitions to promote and encourage the general public to engage in physical activities as part of a healthy lifestyle, as well as providing increased leisure activities especially for young people.
The second pitch will occupy 5% of the area of Kings College Playing Fields ensuring that 90% of the playing fields will still be totally available for unrestricted access by the community who will be able to continue their traditional pastimes.
After what looks to be another extended lockout it's apparent that the NHL does not operate in the interest of the people that support them and fill their pockets with money.
The greed that is evident in the NHL displayed by the owners is causing the fans to miss the game that they love. The owners sign contracts worth millions of dollars that they never intend on paying because they want salaries rolled back in some form for a new CBA.
Start over with a new league and a framework that lasts longer than 7 years that requires an owner to honour a legal contract and not renege on the terms that were agreed.
We do not agree with the 2012 NHL CBA discussions and the lack of urgency on both sides to get an agreement in place. While it seems that this is an issue between the NHL and the NHLPA, the money in question is actually coming from us - the fans.
As the suppliers of revenue, we also have a right to demand our say in the negotiations and to lockout the NHL if we see fit.
As Canadian hockey fans, we support teams that haven't made the playoffs in years; we can easily support this petition.
Nashville is lacking something in hockey, an AHL team.
Let's get one to Nashville!
Markham Town Council has approved a proposal for a Sports, Entertainment & Cultural Centre including a financial framework and partnership with GTA Sports.
We as residents are opposed to having any financial agreements with anyone to fund this facility.
It needs to be owned by the private sector and not Town of Markham.
George Harvey Roller Hockey Rink is located in Whitestone, Queens New York and was created in 1995.
For many years the rink was used widely by hockey leagues, friendly play, and anyone who likes to roller blade.
This past winter the boards were repaired but sadly the surface was not.
It has never been done in it's 15+ years and has become difficult and potentially dangerous to play roller hockey on. When a puck doesn't slide and instead bounces it make for poor play and less control.
This has lead to organized leagues and tournaments from staying away from this rink. We would like to see them come back and make the friendly games that go on there continue.
When Brian Burke took the job in Toronto, he stated: "We require, as a team, proper levels of pugnacity, testosterone, truculence and belligerence. That's how our teams play."
The Leafs need to intimidate their opponents on the ice, and in the arena to gain confidence and character. All I see now are a bunch of individual players, but a group that just needs that extra bit of solidarity. The overall rink environment is critical to the support of the team, and I believe that the goal song played is an understated, but important element.
I believe that the Leafs need a more serious sort of gruff, demoralizing song for their opponents. Anything but the current song from the 2011-12 season, a sad reminder of what could have been.
10. Honor Louie Hart
We the people of Smiths Falls and the surrounding area are asking the town of smiths falls to rename the youth arena after Louie Hart.
Mr. Hart has been a volunteer in Smiths Falls minor hockey for the past 60+ years. He is the oldest registered coach in hockey Canada.
Mr. Hart along with his wife together have given over a decade together volunteering to the youth in our town and we feel it is only proper that this man would get the honors he deserves. Please take a quick moment to sign or petition. Thank you.
As Canadians we find that the views and comments of Mr. Don Cherry of Coach's Corner concerning fighting and violence in the NHL no longer represent our values as a hockey loving country.
Shown nationally in a prime time viewing slot the Coach's Corner's views are not healthy to our young Canadian hockey players and we as tax payers that ultimately pay for the CBC want Don Cherry removed from his paid position immediately.
A by-law in Toronto, Ontario prohibits ball and hockey playing on residential streets. This should not be a by-law at all.
Hockey is our national winter sport and we should be able to play it in front of our houses on our local residential streets.
This petition shows that you support potentially changing this by-law to allow residents of Toronto to play hockey or any other sports on residential streets.
Fife Flyers, the oldest and one of the most successful ice hockey clubs in the UK has for the past few years been languishing in the lower leagues of British Ice Hockey.
Week after week fans have turned up to watch their team play against weak opposition. This demoralises the players, their performance suffers and the fans become disillusioned with the club and slowly but surely they walk away.
We have now reached a crossroads in the future of the Fife Flyers. We either stand up, say we want better for our club, to play better teams, to see a better standard of hockey week in, week out.
Or, we can take the easy option, which is to do nothing and let the club and it's history rot away.
“Throughout her career with Canada’s National Women’s Team, Jennifer Botterill has been a role model for young girls playing hockey across the country, and I am sure she will continue to do so even in retirement,” said Bob Nicholson, president and CEO of Hockey Canada.

Since 2008, UBC’s administration has been considering joining the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) as the main organizing body for the university’s varsity sports. Currently, UBC is a member of CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) in the Canada West Region.
Membership in the NCAA would help UBC attract academically qualified student athletes from across Canada and the US, who would otherwise choose NCAA affiliated schools. This allows the university to build a top-tier varsity athletics program, to match its top-tier academic reputation.
A decision is expected on this matter by April, 2011, in advance of the next NCAA Division II application deadline of June 1, 2011.
Introduction of video review in national and international soccer games.
- They have failed to operate within the current rules that govern them.
- They fail to treat their members with the respect that is due to all members.
- They have no vision for what is needed to lead the OWHA into the future.
- They fail to abide by the rules that govern hockey in Ontario.
- They fail to communicate effectively to their members in a timely and reasonable manner.
- They have become very vindictive with the way that they govern.
- They failed to protect the members of a league that they set up by not incorporating it.
- The OWHA allows paid employees to have a vote on the executive committee. These paid employees and should not be voting on any issues at all. The membership is paying them to run the OWHA, not to control everything.
- The OWHA really do not want to be members of the OHF nor Hockey Canada. See the agenda from the last couple of AGM meetings with the following words: The association at the discretion of the executive Committee is a member of the OHF and Hockey Canada.
Punjabi is the fourth most spoken language in Canada after English, French and Chinese, according to an official census.
What began as a pilot project by CBC during the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals fired up Punjabis across Canada as they tuned in every week to watch NHL hockey games in Punjabi. Hockey Night in Canada's Punjabi Edition became a favorite past time for Punjabi families; an activity which was enjoyed by all generations of the family from Grandparents to Grandkids.
After the Punjabi broadcasts began, from within the community, stories were being shared about how the hockey games were bringing families together. Immigrant children had always wanted to watch hockey but older generations in the household did not always understand the game. Amazingly, youth, their parents, and grand-parents began watching the same show together, creating more family time and bringing generations together. Another incredible effect of the show was that new immigrants were getting a taste of Canadian culture. People who recently moved to Canada were able to learn the rules and partake in conversations about the sport at their work places, quickly becoming fans of the game.
The impact the broadcast has had on the community is tremendous, making South Asians feel more Canadian than ever before.
The Punjabi broadcasts were shown across Canada for free on Digital TV through Rogers, Shaw and Bell as well as online on cbcsports.ca. CBC has cited a lack of funding as the primary reason for cancelling the broadcast stating that online viewers reverted back to the regular English broadcast. However, the majority of viewers watched the Digital TV Punjabi broadcast rather than the online broadcast. CBC has yet to provide statistics for the Digital TV Broadcast.
Please sign this petition and send a message to CBC that Hockey Night in Canada’s Punjabi broadcast has tremendous support across Canada from the South Asian community.
A hockey team, travel or recreation, should have of at least a minimum of 10 skaters and 1 goalie. It is not fair to the players on a team with less then 10.
There should be a least one complete line change available in order to play a game. A team with 8 players and 1 goal against 14 players and 1 goalie is not right nor fair.
The players are exposed to being on the ice the entire game this can cause exhaustion, injuries, low morale and confidence, and poor sportsmanship.
Every year TASA makes it mandatory for all players to participate in a 50/50 draw where each play must sell a specific number of tickets per draw at a minimum.
50% of the money goes to the 50/50 winner
30% goes to TASA for admin and player development
20% goes back to a returning player for their registration fee (non-returning players get nothing)
Failure to participate, means the organization will penalize the player 100% of any tickets not sold.
This punishment is a money grab for the following reasons: 1) the winner of draw doesn't get their 50%, 2) the player doesn't get their 20%, and 3) TASA gets the full 100% for any tickets not sold (up to $40).
The purpose of the draw is to get funds for admin and player development (minimum of $12 per player for 2010/2011)
The majority of ticket buyers are the player's parents.
The people who pay for the players to play are the parents.
For 2010/2011 season, each child is required to sell 20 tickets each for two separate draws. Thus most parents will spend $40 this year on tickets they may not want to purchase. Of the $40, the player gets $8 on next years registration. TASA gets $12. And if a player doesn't sell any tickets, the player will owe TASA the full $40.
Thus parents should have the option to either directly give TASA $12 or pay $40 for tickets, and indirectly give TASA their $12.
Many parents would prefer the hassle free option of just giving TASA $12 --- and then TASA saves resources by not having to administer a 50/50 mandatory program which requires a lot of "policing".
My petition is as follows....
Include the $12 admin and play development cost in the registration fee
GET RID OF MANDATORY 50/50 FUNDRAISING WITH ITS HORRIBLE PENALTY.
Professional hockey needs a revival as does professional sports in Connecticut.
With the largest television market without a sports team and a love for the game, Connecticut deserves a professional team.
We want to show whoever is wondering that we will support the return of the Hartford Whalers!
The QMJHL is going to wreck this young player’s career by calling penalties on him when they are not really penalties. The league doesn’t want to penalize the refs for calling bad calls on him and the rest of the team.
Sometimes there is penalties that are called that are justified but they have players so confused and scared that this will ultimately hinder all the players’ careers. These young players are trying to be professionals and when they try to do what is expected of them they are being shut down by the refs based on the crowds’ reactions.
The seadogs top team in the QMJHL ranked first and second in Canada all year long have fallen victim to ref bullying.
54 RINKS in 54 HOURS
Nearly 1.4 million disabled people – 16% of the state population – call New Jersey home. That is double the state poverty rate. It’s also the same number of students enrolled in the state’s 2,500 high schools.
New Jersey also leads the nation with a staggering 1 in 94 children diagnosed with Autism. Additionally, there is a higher incidence of obesity and depression among disabled New Jerseyans, leading to other health issues.
Suprisingly, hockey has proven to be great occupational therapy for the physically and developmentally disabled.
To prove it, a group of disabled athletes will make history, Jan. 29-31, by visiting all 54 rinks in the State of New Jersey in just 54 hours to raise awareness for Disabled Hockey.
This incredible, record-setting journey is entitled EveryBODY Skates New Jersey (ESNJ), and will take place during Hockey Weekend Across America.
The mission of ESNJ is to convince New Jersey ice rinks to allocate just one hour of ice time per week, in season, to Disabled Hockey.
From Pittsgrove and Pennsauken to Woodbridge and West Orange, the state already has several Disabled Hockey programs in existence. These programs are self-sustaining. In fact, they often have an easier time raising funds than traditional programs.
The challenge these programs face is ACCESS TO REGULAR ICE TIME EACH WEEK during hockey season. Ice time at the state’s 54 rinks is at a premium because preference is typically given to house, travel league and high school programs.
Convincing these business owners to set aside ice time for disabled programs, especially ones they know little about, is a challenge; but Disabled Hockey programs can pay their own way. We’re not looking for financial support or sympathy. Our programs just need a chance to grow, a small commitment from the rink on ice time, and little support from the community.
Theo Fleury is a remarkable individual. He has been to hell and back in his lifetime. But no one can ignore his success in hockey both at the NHL and International Level.
He has made the necessary changes in his life to cope with his demons. He has retired a Calgary Flame, second in Flames all time scoring and has numerous trophies to call his, including the Stanley Cup.
Petition for for Alexander Semin's famous karate-windmill chops to be a part of the 2010 NHL Allstar Game festivities.
We the people in America respect all animals. We have laws to protect animals. We also honor animals when they are dead, by giving them burials.
We do not treat their bodies like they are playthings for our entertainment.
So, we must put a stop to the use of dead octopus bodies in the Detroit Red Wings games.
On Sunday, February 10th, Florida Panthers Player Richard Zednik #20, was injured in a freak accident. One of his teammates fell and his leg came up in the air striking Zednik in the neck with the blade of his teammates skate.
Richard lost 5 units of blood in front of a packed stadium, as he fell to the floor. He was able to get up and skate to his team's bench where help was available. He was then rushed to the hospital.
The game was on hold for 15 minutes and a decision was made by Commissioner Bettman to proceed with the game, of which there was approximately 9 minutes left. I assure you that the teams’ minds were not on the game, but on their fellow teammate.
28. Hockey For Free
Hockey is Canada's Game and the greatest game on the earth, and I believe it should be given to the only real hockey market in North America.
We get a couple of games each week, but for this sport to grow and compete with the other major sports in North America, it has to be given to us for free.
No Pay Channels, no special circumstances, Just Hockey...the Channel.
John Ferguson Junior has made several disappointing decisions as G.M. of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
As a fan, I have had enough. Money is spent in all the wrong places. The team is headed backwards and not forwards. Enough is not being done to bring fans a winning season. Memories of the Harold Ballard years are starting to come back for many fans.
If Ottawa can make the cup finals and dismiss their G.M., why has JFJ been allowed to keep his job?
Before the year 2005, the Corona Panthers had a roller hockey team and played at a place called Inline Sports center, because the place was closed down. Most of the schools in the CNUSD took the hockey away because of that.
