What ever the lowest one is. Since the first 4 game schedule is out, we're sticking around the next 2 games. Lets hope the league will bump us up after game #4.

Too bad if I rush the puck, the noobs don't know how to sit back and cover. But no really, I got the same thing on my PICH tier 6 team. I played so crappy on forward, they switched me back to Defense. Funny thing is, I'm not even a defenseman. lol.

Shit, I hate late games. Lame 10:30 games. I'm so tired right now, I just wanna go sleep. Anyone on PICH Refugees? Should be a good game tonight.

First off, I talked to Bryan tonight. There seemed to have been a mix up about the tiering of my team. He apparently didn't receive any notifications about my team wanting to get bumped up. He only had just heard about us wanting to go up a Div like a couple days ago. Some miscommunication between the team and league.

Good game tonight vs Refugees. They def don't belong in this tier. I couldn't see 1 player that had trouble skating or handling the puck. Although we lost 6-3 tonight, I felt both teams were pretty equal. Too bad our goalie had a bad game, I may have jinxed him by telling him not to pull a Luongo. Lol. I also found out tonight it's his first time playing roller goalie. That #19 on their team, he's got one hell of a slapshot. We underestimated how many decent players they had. We figured they were like us, 4-5 decent guys and the rest noobs. We were pretty wrong..lol.

Yeah, I have to admit, PICH has better rink times, and honestly, that's the only thing going for them. If you think VIHL is poorly run, your gonna want to burn RIC down, cause they are down right horrible. The Schedule still isn't up. Lots of people think PICH is just a money grab. Ref's don't give a shit and the league managers don't run shit. I've played in the big 3 Roller Hockey Leagues. VIHL, PICH, West Coast (Langley). VIHL is the best run, out of the 3. PICH is the worst. PICH refs call a "delay of game" penalty on players who try to freeze the puck along the boards. Now that is stupid.

Bryan works his ass off for VIHL and he employs quite a few people to help move things along. But he can't focus on the league itself 24/7. He's got a day job like most of us do. I enjoy playing in VIHL, just wish I could play higher, then I can be that plumber all over again.

From what I've seen the West Coast League has some of the best players. I'm not too sure about our Gold tiers (VIHL), but some of the lower tier teams in the WCL have some damned good players. 6thGear is right though, VIHL is run pretty damned smoothly. They bust ass to get stats up and all that good stuff, they're still relatively new compared to PICH, but so far they're building a good reputation for themselves.

bryan works his ass off for the league while having a day job so you have to give him props for that. The site is updated as well as stats.

Like 6th gear said, the only thing going for pich is the rink times. I went back to pich this year because my vihl games didnt start until 1030 and with work the next morning, it gets pretty tiring. I could care less about beer league stats so as long as i get to play i'm happy

I couldn't agree more with what you have to say about PICH. I've played in the league almost from the start and this year, 3 of our games had only 1 ref (2 of those games the only ref that showed up was late). 1 game had no timekeeper and no scoresheet.

On top of that, until recently, there was no stats, and the scheduling is a joke. People can't make plans because they don't even know when the games are going to be scheduled.

The biggest ref issue I have ever run into was racist refs at Langley. During 1 game, I beat a guy 1 on 1 and was on a breakaway from his blueline in. The other player football tackles me!! I was thinking "sweet, penalty or penalty shot" I look over at the ref at the half boards. He has his hands behind his back. I look at the other ref down at the other end. No raised hand. I look back at the ref with this "WTF" expression. I ask " What no call?" He looks at me, has the pretend " I didn't see anything" look then skates away.

So I bust my ass back to my own end, slide and block a cross ice passing attempt. Well the puck was stuck under me as I slid onto our goal crease. Whistle blows and that same ref who "didn't see anything" motions a penalty shot?? I go up to him for an explanation and he totally ignores me. Now, I've reffed before and the worst thing to piss off a ref is to start screaming at him. So, i knew better and asked both of them politely. So I went to the other ref and he hands me a fucking bench minor? So not only did we get screwed with that penalty shot, we had to do a PK.

Then at the end of the game, both sides get into a bruhaha and they start calling us "fucking chinks". Then their families...yes, families as in sisters, moms and gf's start bitching at us saying we were rough out there and shit. They got all pissed cause they were an all white team with huge guys that got beaten by a team of asians that were of average asian size.

Anyway, back to PICH. They also hand out fines for stupid things, like having no goalie and players with too many different jerseys. So yeah, there's a reason why lots of people think they are a money grab league

Oh yeah, some pics are up on VIHL site. My friend is the one who's taking the pics for the league. Notorious Hawks. Nice jerseys!!

I have had a team in VIHL since it started in 2004.
But as a reliever I joined a team in PICH this year.
Its only 3rd game we already had schedule mix ups where there's no game and refs that didnt show up for our team
So I am bias and I do like VIHL better (ok playing in bby is better than driving 45mins to a hockey game that may or may not happen!)

Um...I don't know. I didn't check..lol.

edit. Teambag got bumped down to zinc. Wow. They lost their last game 18-4. Kinda unnecessary to run the score up like that.

Same! Lol. I do like the different looking gear (pants n jersey and no need for shoulders). But the whole aspect of it is quite difficult to get used to especially when you're playing a game of roller and a game of ice each week.

In roller, your shit can rip and burn through if you ever bail haha.. Ice is much more forgiving.

Hey guys, our team is looking for a decent goalie for two games this week. Tuesday and Friday. The games are at 10 + 11pm. We're Roflcatzz in the Bronze II division, we're looking for an experienced goalie to help keep our unbeaten record going. Please send me a PM if you're interested.

Seriously? PICH Refugees is a strong team. I didn't see 1 player who had trouble skating. I think brass 2 is more of their level. Especially their goalie who's pretty good.
