Steve, sadly, in this case, the wrong kid was offered a spot on the team, has accepted it, and has paid their $800+ deposit. At this point, to make room for Alex on a team, they would have to go back and tell that kid that he's now "kicked off" the team. Screwing another kid is not the way to fix our problem. This has been discussed and decided from the very top of the organization, including the liason from the Carolina Hurricanes, who are the primary sponsor for all of the "Junior Hurricanes" teams.
Trust me, I want to take Alex's case to the US Supreme Court. What I don't want is for him to be black balled next year, or in the future, because he has the crazy family. Both the head coach of the team and the goalie coach were very reasonable, up front, and humble when I talked to them. They admitted that the rankings got screwed up and that they made the mistake. Alex feels much better knowing that his great play, hard work, and effort were not judged to be 5th or 6th rate. Sure he wishes it had worked out like it should have, but at this point, our family is much better off moving on and not being the "unreasonable" party.
Sounds like a lost cause, huh, Steve-O? Right up your alley.
Not all "lost causes " are truly lost my friend. The question is always "is it worth the fight". Obviously , in this case you and Alex have made the judgement (and it certainly sounds like the right one) that it's not. (How about a few of us Threadsters come to one of the games and you can point out the kid who took Alex's spot? Accidents happen Ya-know!"). Obviously kidding , I'd never hurt a kid. Point out the guy who screwed up however......
So this means no Hockey trips to DC? Too bad, I'm probably only going to be here another year.....
