Did you know that in Oakville minor hockey the abolished the individual MVP awards, top defenseman, etc. The only awards handed out now are for top scorer, and top goalie (based on stats, not a vote). So its only statistical awards, no opinion. The idea was to get rid of the politics, but the reason it happened is because too many whiney mom's kept saying "what about my Billy? He's just as good, and he didn't get an award? This isn't fair! No one should get awards if its not gonna be fair!" And they ruined it for everyone.
Don Cherry represents an older way of thinking, but I admire a lot of the old culture in Canada. Listening to my grampa talk, I sometimes shake my head, but sometimes he raises really good points too.
