Question for you

by Billetdad


I think you make some good points but I question one part of the premise. That players are being offered cash to join the CHL. These rumors have swirled for many years but I can't think of one (my memory is not perfect anymore mind you!) instance where it was proven that this happened. At this point if it was as rampant as you believe someone would have blown the whistly by now - a player, coach, front office guy - somebody somewhere would have sang and proved a specific time this happened.

I say that because I think of the SMU and USC situations in which former players sang pretty quickly after there were no consequences to them. I would not be surprised if money or gifts have been offered and accepted but I can't believe the amounts and frequency are extreme because the cat would have come out of the bag by now.

What other difinitive evidence do you have to offer? Its not that I don't necessarily beleive that you have first hand knowledge but without proof it doesn't hold much credibility on a message board. Nothing personal, just the way it is.
