As parents, coaches, officials and players all come together to play the game we all love and expect the most from each other; some of us struggle to hold back or feel we have the right to express ourselves in ways that are detrimental to the game. After all we are human in nature, and we all see things in a different way when it comes to our loved ones. Let’s face it, the amount of experience or knowledge of the game we feel we may have may not be the same as the person next to us. What we believe to be a rule may have been a rule before, but is no longer. In the past USA Hockey has made rule changes every two years, but as of last season they have elected to make rule changes every four years.
