I used to play for OHA. I too was promised things that never came to fruition, but that is not an issue with me.
OHA is a business and Andy operates it to make dollars. It is awful how he has changed, people that knew the old Andy can attest to this.
I don't want to bash on anyone, I am not angry, as a former player though speaking to prospective parents I have this to say...
I would not send my child to OHA because it is not a family. There certainly is brotherhood among the teammates, but from a checkbook standpoint, each recruit is a dollar sign. The nicest Andy will ever be to you is right before he gets you to sign up for OHA, he is quite the actor, and not ashamed to make grand claims about your hockey future to get to your wallet. The all-mighty dollar has its ways of tearing down good people, and Andy certainly is not the same man he was when he brought the IDT to OHS. I am certain too that you can get more for less elsewhere too, if finances are a concern.
