worst event ever!!

I am not even sure where to start….
You cannot start a series one-way, and then just change the way it is played. It sucked sitting around for hours. Most of these teams traveled over 3+ hours. Some of them got there that morning. Everyone I talked to, was not happy! Not one good thing was said.

As far as the reffing on field one, it was a joke. They were smoking, calling players out, then letting them back on the filed. wtf. Then they tried to pull a player and he did not even go out? They pulled penalties on one team, but not the other, if the refs knew your team, you were golden, if not you were ****ed. They were letting players play with NEW hits on them, and were whipping NEW hits off players as well. It was nice of them to sideline coach some of the players they knew. This is of course when they were doing anything at all. They mostly just stood there. The ONLY ref worthwhile on field 1 was the head ref, but he cant ref the entire dam field, but he did try! Good Job,

As far as the running games back to back it was bull. They held up the time for one team, but not another. Some teams were starting with out the full 5 players, while for some teams they would stop the clock and give them more time. It was by far the worst event I have even seen/played.

So we pay all this money to play (on the worst field this place has to offer), then drive for hours and hours, pay for hotel(s), get to a field/someone’s back yard, find out the event is not going to be ran the way it was (which sucked), and then play with basically no refs.

As of right now we will not be back for the rest of the series. We loved playing it last year, and were looking forward to it this year, but we have no desire to sit around for and hour between game play. There are way to many teams to run it like this. So good luck to everyone else who sticks with the series.

As far as this field, I will never go there again. I am an active member of PETA and will not associate with this kind of abuse. I hope that as bad as the refs were on field one, that the MWXL refs had nothing to do with this.

Most of those "children" worked their ***** off and took their personal time and money to give you a field to play on and keep it running. You should be more thankful of other's dedication and effort.
Also, the skunk wasn't put in the dumpster. Sorry if we offended you by killing it.

To answer Chris' question, the skunk had been hanging around the parking lot and picnic tables for a bit. We tried to scare it off, but it wasn't budging. I guess the decision was made to kill it.

race to 2 was awesome, and should definitely be the official format for the mwxl.

there could have been less time in between games (not points). field 2 seemed to have this down, field 1, not so much.

killing the skunk wasn't necessary, couldn't it have just been moved?

the pits were so legit! i wish this was the case for all mwxl events.
Just watched your videos on Vimeo, and I loved them, you do a great job editing........Did you happen to get any video of the event?

not picking a fight.. but how long was it hanging around? was it spraying anyone? if it was just hanging around, it was more than likely sick or had just had offspring somewhere. i'm also basing this off of what i overheard, not what i saw. it was clubbed to death? if someone got that close, they could have caged it with more ease to have it relocated.

only 25 GB's link if you'd like to see my 2011 demo reel. it's somewhat buried in my vimeo, but it's my featured video on my youtube channel. stay tuned to my Thread where i'll be posting select coverage and links to full sets of photos/videos

this was one thing i saw on field 1 that definitely impressed me. that ref did an awesome job the entire event though, i believe he was on the snake side closer to the hyperball field.

Good event, reffs on the D3 side were ok a few of them were lazy and not too many calls were made they also let a dead player check a live player before the player hung the flag, in what way was that ok? and there was an instance where one live player wiped off another live player that was going to hang the flag Other then then that i really enjoyed the event. The format was much better then the last one

1) PG is right outside of Sheridan. I pointed several people to the town if the wanted a real toilet. We also had running water from the well pumps, so don't complain. Ask next time.
2) Hire children to ref? The Wiseguys and Aftershock are not little kids bro.
3) Hire children to work? The teams work there, not select children. It isn't age based. We busted our ***** working there, what have you done for your field?
4) The skunk needed to be killed. It could have had rabies, sprayed people, sprayed our gear (since it was next to the house), sprayed visiting teams' gear, or reproduced. I rather have the place smell like skunk piss for less than a day than for a year or more.
5) Poking it with sticks? No one did that, you are making stuff up. After it was killed, we disposed of it... Across in the neighboring field...
6) In the dumpster? Look at #5. In the field. You are discrediting yourself with lies to make us look bad. Lies can be disproven by someone who was actually there. Don't blabber BS on the internet if it isn't true.

to add to my original post, i did enjoy being allowed on the field barefoot. most tournament series don't allow media people to event be in short sleeves.

edit: aftershock should not be allowed to ref boom/wiseguys players, and the pg refs should not be allowed to ref teams from pg. again, as stated before, this allows for far too many biased calls.

no persons on a team and/or affiliated with PG were refs for this event, dont know why you would think that, i dont think i have meet any of those refs.

good series, sucks for d-4 that it took so long, i couldnt imagine playing for 11 hours, need more refs, the ones there were good but with 10 people on a field 6 refs are not enough, maybe move the guy standing behind each start box to the side so there are 4 refs on each side

Im not offended I simply said it was childish to beat it with a bat and like I said before I was thankful as well as my whole team we provided over 15 waters at 1.50 a pop to refs that we paid for BTW what you did was illegal and could be arrested if the right person saw you....FYI...Something was def in the dumpster area I seen people poking it with sticks and yes CHILDREN only a child would chase a skunk down and beat it with a bat....Who was pointed to the real restroom? When the johnny was completly full and the line was still 10 deep that never happened so whos lying? Maybe it wasnt the skunk but it was something Asked several refs where running water was...Was told they had bottled water..So again I am not lying...i can GUARNTEE that 20 out of the 30 teams prefer the smell of a skunk vs 1000lbs of **** and piss rotting in the sun....And having to urinate in the parking lot like wild animals defend your ****ty *** feild and the CHILDREN that work there all you want proofs in the pudding....Its not MWXL's fault its the managment of that joke *** place...Ya its been around forever cuz that farm house is from the 40's....LIKE I SAID STICK WITH PB ASYLUM MWXL THATS A REAL TOURNEY FACILTY and also you say you couldnt run it off? But why were you seen running after it throwing a bat at it? Im pretty sure if its running from you its scared and trying to leave...So again the proofs in the pudding Im not saying there is anything wrong with getting rid of a nuisnace aka a skunk but to chase it down with a bat? Thats def animal cruelty 101

Reffing sucked on field 1. Tell them to get on the tread mill and run some of that fat off so they can actually run for paint checks. And not call you out without saying anything by pointing from an angle outside of sight. Over all thanks for being lenient about us racing back for the quarter finals. Definitely not leaving before we know if we are advancing again ! Still got 3rd place though

All true i dont know this guy either..but much love Its not MWXL's fault on all the feild issues but they def should never host another event there again Im not black listing Mwxl but def that dump....I give mad respect to Big Black he did his best I saw him tell the refs on feild 1 to change **** up to give guys extra time they just didnt listen to him....Dude cant do everything he ran a decent event for the conditions he had I felt...the layover sucked bad and does mess teams up bad we were HOT won 3 of our 4 and tied 1 but sat and fell asleep for hours to wake up to ochos and get destroyed

Overall d4 should of played on the best field or best field (s). Not some ghetto psp field that had concrete smeared on it. 300 x23= $6,900 400x7= 2800, i think the d4's deserved to get better amenities as opposed to d3, but that's my two cents. At a tournament refs should blow up the bunkers without having to ask them, i remember asking many refs to blow up bunkers, otherwise half the field would of been deflated. Other than poor reffing on field one, ghetto bunkers (field 1), and one bathroom filled to the brim with feces; this was a good event. I would also like to add that killing that skunk would probably be in violation of animal cruelty laws, and it just looks bad for the sport. I know mwxl didn't have anything to do with it, but it was definitely bad PR.
