Response to Now I REALLY Hope Etobicoke Gets In


Ya, you're probably an Etobicoke player...
Teams that automatically make it in...that's the league's's always been that way and it was a set rule in advance...Etobicoke got their chance, and didn't qualify..just like the other teams that didn't qualify because obviously the other teams out played them and wanted it more.
Basically it comes down to this: Etobicoke, like all the other teams in the league who didn't automatically get a bye into the provincials, played a series of qualifying games. In their case, two of the teams from their group of qualifiers would advance...they didn't, they don't get to go. A fact it a fact and that's it.
The Aeros are a good team, and didn't get to go to the winter games because they didn't qualify. They had more reason to complain too, because only one team got to advance out of their pool, and they were put in the same one as Etobicoke, another good team...but did they complain? no. The faced the facts, they didn't come on here and complain, and try to whine their way into the games. They accepted it, and moved on.
Everyone keeps saying how young this Etobicoke team is..that means they'll still have next year, and the year after to play in the provincials. This year they tried, and there were two teams that beat them out fair and square. That's it...its over..They should not get any special treatment. They had their chance like everyone else..and they failed this time.
