Having an uneven number of teams is a bit of a pain in the ass, and increasing to 16 makes it unworkable with the goalie situation.
Ahh, that makes sense.

Steve,

It doesn't matter who you start because you have a horse shoe up your ass so far I'm not really sure how you get through the day. You must be gay.

Though I didn't appreciate the crazy-short notice, or the disrespect of ignoring us, he was nice enough to just leave his team, rather than snake a couple hundred more bucks out of us by winning in the next couple years.Oh wait...we still didn't get that two-time winners prize back, did we? Oops.
Yeah, oops. Talk about snaking.

Tell us more about this non-returned prize pack.

There was/is a pool between several FCHL owners where each person anted up $100 entry fee, Darnelle collected the money and ostensibly deposited it into a CD for safekeeping, the idea being that the money would grow until someone in the pool won the FCHL Championship for the second time. I think it was around $800 or so when the pool started. Darnelle quit the league, people who were in the pool requested that the prize money be returned so someone in the league could safeguard it, he gave some vague reply about sending a check, no one ever received one (shockingly enough).He was also holding league entry fees / prize money from last season, as well as the 3 year entry fees we collected from expansion teams, but I think some or all of that was returned. The pool money is still unaccounted for.

I am loving the league this year, the playoff race is awesome. I pretty much need to make the playoffs for my Iggy trade not to look really bad. He's been on a sick heater ever since i got rid of him.

Pretty sure the expansion monies came back, but yeah, not the winner pool. Think it was only $500, but still. Mostly he is in danger from certain ginger Americans because he has been awful about returning emails, messages, etc. Likes to log off facebook, MSN as soon as someone messages him. Supposedly he dropped off the FCHL because of a new job and girlfriend (understandable), though with a new job, presumably he'd have a few spare bucks...

Yeah, he's become ultra-shady over the past year, but I'm over it, the FCHL dies for no man. I can see leaving the league for the reasons you listed, but it doesn't remotely excuse the manner in which he left or the fact that he's refusing to return money that doesn't belong to him.

Corruption! Intrigue! The AHL needs a scandal to liven things up.

I believe he used the cash for an emergency (go figure a student -- broke); the good news is that there was initial maliciousness intended but the bad news is that, ultimately, the people in that bet will more than likely still be SOL anyways.

Nope, haven't received anything. He said he used the 2-time winners money, don't recall for what, it's in a facebook convo somewhere, he assured me it would be ours by the end of the season. He also told me in like October that the $90 check was on the way.
