Subscriptions Near Bottom?

If pageview trends are any indication of a site’s popularity, The Scouting News is finally nearing its deserved end. Pageviews are at an all time low, down 42% in the last 90 days thanks to the efforts of The Boycott!


Not since the fraudulently-premised site began have visitor numbers been so low. What’s changed? Absolutely nothing, and that’s precisely why the site is in such precipitous decline. Word has spread near and far of their predatory, vindictive practices. What’s new is the thousands of visitors to this site and internet forums who have found the courage to speak out in spite of the threats made by Ron “Benny” Holmes and The Scouting News. Attempts to make parents think he has the ability to hurt their children’s chances for success in hockey are finally being rejected because a critical mass of outrage and indignity has been reached. Thanks to all who have canceled their subscriptions. Thanks to every single one of you who are helping to spread the word about just how unscrupulously Ron Holmes behaves and how poorly regarded he truly is throughout the world of youth hockey. Keep spreading the word. Paste links to this site on every forum, email your friends, and especially warn parents with younger children who are new to this whole scam, The Scouting News preys on the love and pride of parents. It’s time to turn up the heat and finish them off for good. It’s amazing through all this, one man has stubbornly refused to hear the complaints of the public – that he has refused to apologize publicly and mend his ways. Until The Scouting News publicly apologizes for misrepresenting itself, erase their bookmark, don’t visit their site even out of curiosity, and don’t give them one thin dime. Way to go, hockey fans! You should be very proud of yourselves. The court of public opinion has convicted Ron Holmes, The Scouting Nazi. Just look at those teeny, tiny numbers in the bottom right corner. Let’s see if we can get them all the way down to zero.

  1. Anybody with half a brain can tell you that Scouts are not tracking Pee wee players and below and barely notice a bantam aged player so parents stop kidding yourselves! Save your money!
