Yours is a tough stance to have and stay balanced.

I'm fine with a lot of things. I acknowledge that the Q win more than their fair share of championships. (mostly Laval but let's call it the Q for arguments sake)
I'm fine with acknowledging that Q players are on average one year older (give or take).
I'm also fine with many of you thinking that older players are a big factor explaining the Q's relative dominance. I don't necessarily agree, but I'm fine with the idea being considered.
I'm also fine with the idea that some tweaking could be considered to re-establish better balance between the conferences. If it's further age limiting, then so be it. Greater good and all that.
But please let's not compare civil football with cegep, which is part of the educational system, and which in every way is more demanding than HS. And which ALSO has legitimate 3-year programs.

Laval Rouge et Or
The Rouge et Or are a special program. By far the strongest in the nation and likely the greatest program ever. - Duane Rollins, Sept 2nd 2008
