I would like to know why some teams aren't going. I will make another post to this effect. It would be interesting to find out why. We are always trying to do out best to make the league better and I think we have made some great strides this year. Check out my other post on this issue to make comments and let me know your suggestions.
I'll say this as myself and my views or statements do not reflect that of anyone but myself.
Remember what happened to Joy Division with the NPPL? They left the league due to the refereeing. I, as well as many others know reffing isn't the most glamorous job on earth. (I reff weekly at my local field) During last year's Southeast Qualifier the reffing staff provided was biased towards most teams who were not the field's sponsored teams.
Again, my views and opinions are my own and does not reflect that of my team/sponsors/affiliates :mellow:
Well, Jayson is doing is best this year to get the reffing dilemma rectified. I have had previous concerns during the previous SPPL Qualifiers and Finals. I played with Gridlock during previous seasons and have a new team "Regime" (75% of the old Gridlock) that will be competing in the Elite division.
With that being said, it is up to us as players to step up and help this league grow in size and legitimise. This year besides competing in 2 to 3 qualifiers and the finals. I also will be Head reffing Georgia, Tennessee and New York this year. I know many other players are doing the same. If you have concerns come out and help ref some events, not just head ref, but be part of the field staff. Teams like the Irregulators and many others are doing so. They and many others have really made a difference in the events they have done this in.
Plus, with this years rule changes. It should alleviate a lot of the problems that happened on the field in previous years.
On another note, Curt is XF going to be at this qualifier. If so may be we can get together for Dinner on Friday night. It's always good to see a fellow WOLVERINE!
If not, maybe I will see you at the ELITE WEEKEND. Third I and I will be instructors this year, HA HA
Sorry Mike ... fried the computer a few weeks back & just now getting back up and running.
Unfortunately I won't be at SE qual this year. Irony is when the guy who makes qualifiers 1800 miles away doesn't make it to his own qualifiier ...LOL
Mrs. Acara has let me play PB on/during birthdays, wedding anniversaries & vacations for the last 10 years .... so I'm going to actually take a small break & go on a cruise with my wife this month.
No worries, I'll be back on the circuit & catch up with you guys after we get back.
