Yesterday was opening day. Anyone know if Rob showed his face? Was Siegal there? How did things go? How was the turnout?

I was at Opening Day. Disappointed that he (he knows who he is) did not say anything during his long winded speech. I saw people joking throwing punches while he was talking.

Mayor was there.

Everyone acted like everything is OK.

It's not.

I'd be thankful if they had term limits at SWBH.
I'm thankful I'm not a SWBH coach and the possibility of getting my head choked off!

Driving home from work this evening, I hear this news article on the radio about 4 C. R. police officers getting commendations for breaking up a domestic battle. Then here is our beloved police chief saying what a fine job these officers did when they arrived at the home and found the suspect with a choke hold on the victim. Hmmm, where have we seen that before?
I just find this so ironic. Good job to the officers! Wish they were at the rink that day so they could see their chief in action!

What is up with Chicago Ridge government officials' neck fetish? First, the police chief chokes out a person at a charity event, now Gary M. Swiercz, the deputy chief of the Chicago Ridge Fire Department, broke into a female neighborÂ’s apartment in the south suburb early Saturday wearing a ski mask and carrying a knife, rope, zip ties and duct tape and then threatened to slit her throat. It must be the water, stop drinking the water in Chicago Ridge. The police chief has to be the happiest person in Chicago Ridge, what he did was minor compared to the fire chief.

Moved out of the ridge a few years back. I wastalking to one of my old neighbors over the weekend and they were filling me in on the local gossip. My kids used to play in the hockey league and it doesn't surprise me that the president flipped out. What surprised me is that he is the police chief. This stuff with the old police chiefs pension and the deputy fire chiefs arrest is incredible. Also found out Siegal is not running and some questions about Pratl stepping
Down from the 218 board.

What amazes me is that for a small town we have such much stuff on Chicago Ridge Topix...go look at other towns with big issues and their residents don't post on Topix...some people must have nothing better to do then get on here and trash people

Its a terrible shame family bad blood spilled out onto the hockey rink that being said, is the family that arrogant they think that the league cant run without them or that nobody else can be in control because it was started by the father who is dead and gone?? Plenty of leagues were founded by families and legacies die could it he the family keeps such tight control because the money is so good.??? Who keeps the profits?? It certainly doesn't go back to Tue rink that place is falling apart stinky

So how did the season go? Did the Chief control himself or is he to busy protecting the mall? Is there going to be a tournament for the kids this year? Is there a storm team?

Travel/Tournament Team Participation Policy
Players registered with Southwest Ball Hockey both currently and from the most recently finished session, are not permitted to play for any outside, non&#8208;Southwest Ball Hockey, ball hockey travel teams. Players that choose to participate for other travel/tournament teams and their parents/legal guardians will be subject to expulsion for a minimum of one year and longer if the Board of Directors sees fit. Expulsion will result in that player and parents/legal guardians not being permitted to attended any Southwest Ball Hockey sanctioned event, including all games, practices, banquets, and not being allowed at SWBH rink for the length of the expulsion. After the expulsion period has ended, the player may request reinstatement in writing to the Board. Exception: Players who have tried out for Southwest Ball Hockey travel/tournament teams and were not selected may choose to play for another travel/tournament team.

This was on the SWBH website. I guess the chief thinks only he controls ball hockey and no one else

There are MANY programs that do not allow this - Palos Baseball - High School Sport Programs - Some travel teams in ICE HOCKEY - rules are never good rules when people don't want to live by them....

It's not a high school program, it's not a travel program. It's a local rec league and nothing more

My only gripe with this place is, if your a board member, you shouldnt be a coach OR a ref, and other coaches shouldnt be allowed to ref games in either division. If they can get a volunteer list for the consession stand, make one for being a ref, hold a one day seminar on it to those that volunteer for it so they know the rules. Ive seen other coaches give generous calls or no calls to board members kids or other coaches kids while being a ref. As for the whole Pyznarski/Gapski fued, bury it,let Mr Gapski come back, he was a great coach, and did alot for the league in my opinion, as has Mr Pyznarski and the other board members. This is supposed to be a learning experience for our kids, and if they are learning these things,the fueds, the pissing matches, then the cycle will continue, or we could teach them to leave the egos outside the fence and play hard and play the correct way, and THAT cycle can continue. Its our choice, i say we make the game enjoyable for all who play.
