Doesn't need to die

Postby Verse9 » 17 Sep 2018, 05:06

So, some kid thinks his soccer ball is the only one we can play with. The pettiness annoys me.

I'm going to set up games based on the league tables. If you're in let me know. Not sure the kid who thinks his is the only ball in the world will play along, but I'm pretty sure the person who gave him the ball intended a fourth round that included more than that kid and his " friends".

This is kind of hilariously awesome. Harnessing your anger after that recently finished game to maybe do something really cool lol.

The guy who started this league took on a massive task and made something that a lot of good players got pretty excited about. He worked really hard to try to keep it going. In my opinion, he put up with a lot, and eventually he made the decision that he just doesn’t feel like dealing with it anymore. And I think he shouldn’t feel bad at all for stepping away. He put enough work in to establish the league into something that many of its members seem to want to continue.

I genuinely have been rooting for this league to do well. Hopefully, you’re able to get enough of the players to want to try to just continue through a change of ownership, so to speak.
You don't know what I'm thinking...because I don't know what I'm doing.

I just want to point out who owns the soccer ball/who is the moderator to the sub forum. :?

I'm in. And if I need to cover for someone in League 1 or League 3, I'd be happy to do so. Let's bring all three leagues to the finish line, even if the results are less than fully pure.

I have never surrendered and never NMR'd, and hope to keep that alive. Never mind, the perfect run has come to an end. Dammit, DAMMIT, DAMMIT.

I know you guys are thinking of making this Classicist-only, and even though I qualify, my application's not going to get processed anytime soon, but I'm interested and would love to do this!
