That’s a step too far if true!
These lads have to manage pretty hectic personal and professional lives (i know they aren’t pros, so don’t nit pick).
If you don’t have your own personal mode of transportation, life can become even more hectic! So sense would indicate that this is the wrong asset to take away in order to teach ‘the earning of’
So I guess the good old Ma’s and Da’s have to provide a taxi service again. You’d have thought if you had an IC son those days would be over!
It’s a damn large investment too for a college lad or a young fella just starting employment if they have to buy a vehicle in order to be an IC player.
Public transport can be extremely stressful and time-consuming depending on the hour of use, so surely that should be avoided too if you want your player to be in the right head space?!
And what about the transporting of your kitbag, hurl, helmet, work clothes, laptop etc… ?? The boot of a car is a handy locker.
I agree with such schoolings to help bring home the bacon… But I think they chose the wrong plum to eliminate in order to teach this particular lesson.
