Its the American way! I laugh at this article here http://www.goerieblogs.com/sports/shootout/2012/06/hockey-update-blizzard-joining-new-junior-a-league/ The Erie Blizzard of some loser league down in the US. They call it junior A but from what I hear it is the same calibre as Canadian midget house. They make their players pay to play? I guess it is somewhat like making little girls who think they can be models pay to have their pictures taken.
When I find more on this circus league I will post it here.
