Completely untrue.


There is a difference between someone who plays hockey, and a Hockey Player. which one are you?

Jeff Cox @JeffCoxSports  14m

Jeff Nygaard has stepped down as USPHL Commissioner following disagreement with Islanders HC President Richard Gallant.

 

 

 

Hats off to the Commish.   Isles feel they have the power having won 86 championships in a row but it seems the Commish feels he's entrusted to do what's best for the league..... He's not the first or last that walked away or got fired for going toe toe with an owner on behalf of what's best for the whole.  

 

This is the kind of guy that can take a league to another level, it seems. 

 

If the Fort Wayne Komets owner, err I mean Isles owner, feels the league is only there for him to win there will be trouble ahead for this fledgling experiment.

Hello All!

 

Let's have a jolt of reality shot into our understanding of the media, especially as it concerns the sports media.

 

From my experience and knowledge, I know that  newspapers are in business to do one thing: to sell advertisements. To qualify as a "newspaper," the space devoted to ads must be 25% or less. If your publication is over 25% per page, you qualify as a "circular," "shopper," or what-have-you.

 

This means that even the "best" newspaper is in the business to sell ads. News stories are second in the publishers' (owners') eyes. Reporters are interested in the "story" but must please their employers.

 

If the Detroit News or Free Press devotes x percent of column inches to the Tigers or Lions or, oh my, the Red Wings, it's because those sports companies have forked over X amount of dollars to require the newsppaer to balance it with 75% of news.

Rico this is NOT what happened. I just spoke to Jeff and neither he or Richard said anything like this.  This is a complete fabrication.  The resignation was for personal reasons which I am not going to discuss publicly.

Cox has never spoken to Jeff or Richard.  I am sitting in Boston, in Cox's backyard at the USPHL playoffs right now, and no one has spoken to this guy.  An absolute fabrication.  The player was suspended for the off ice issue and charges.  The player was charged with assault and is going through the courts.  Jeff resigned about 2 weeks ago, and it had absolutely nothing to do with the player issue, and nothing to do with Richard Gallant.

Fair enough ML.   You're there and in contact with those involved...... I'll take your word on this. 

 

You gonna do a story on the Commish resigning or who's in line to replace him?

One of the reasons I am here.  I will get some photos on my phone and try to get them into an article describing the scouting too.
