There was a price we were officially quoted by Amos, but we felt adding that cost on top of the registration fees teams were already paying, would not make the series affordable for most teams, at least for an unsanctioned NPPL event. So we had to choose, and made the decision to hire an outside gun as the head ref this year and see how it goes.

what

Dude the price was fair Amos quoted but like Ken said we just couldnt manage it. We wanted to but it was quite a bit of money, but you get what you pay for and thats why we looked into it. But what Phil said was outta line. If anyone was being an *** or rude it was Phils comment.

Thanks
Adam

SO, looks like the 2nd event is going to be a bust compared to the first one.

maybe there should only be one event in a series and 5 different series so that every event is a first event and all the teams will show up.

I-29 as a series sucks the refs half the time don't know **** the other half they're so overwhelmed with the ability to finally control anything in they're miserable lives that they abuse the position, like the little turd at watertown last year you know who you are the 4'3 midget with blond hair. I came out and played watertown took 2nd in AM and what did we get for it nothing!!!!!!!!!!! all the other division 2nd place winners got some money back but not us on top of that its bull**** to make me play the novice divison waste my paint on games that don't count so your series can suck some more cash out of my pocket by making me buy more paint to play throw away games thanks for nothing. There are some people that are honestly trying to make this a real series and I see you and I give you all my deepest respect but the majority of fields and staff are not properly set up to manage this undertaking not to mention the local politics of one team reffing one tournament and letting another team that is reffing a future tournament get away with cheating, bad calls, and favoritism cause they'll get you back

wow

I am trying to remember what team you played for? The watertown field is my field but I am trying to remember what team you played for in the AM division. The teams I recall in that division are

Yellow Jackits
Aimless Factory/Sioux Falls Crossfire
Sioux Falls Affliction
Ballistic
Fargo United (I believe they played under a different name I think same group of guys)
GOW

I dont think I forgot any but it is very possible. Also in the rules last year and it was common knowledge that if their were 4 or less teams in a division the teams in that division could vote on if the payout went all to first or was split by place. So thats why you didnt get anything for second. Also common knowledge/rules people knew that if there was less than a certain number of teams that the AM and Novice division would play each other.

I am sorry you had a "bad time" and got "cheated" by the refs. But the main things you complain about you knew when you signed up.

Thanks
Adam

i dont know how many tournys watertown had last season but i know thats where i played (prety sure) i will agree the one thing i realy dont like is the "keep money in divisions" thing, yes the reff had a "god complex" but for a relatively new series i think its shaping up... nobody said you had to come back and play again. and this was a dead thread that realy didnt need to be re-opened

This Year

I am working really hard at this series this year and focusing on it more than anything else. I am not even planning on me playing on a team for any series or events just so I can make really good things happen. There are always changes and such that are being made and we are trying different things and retaining what we have tried. This year will be huge and I think it will draw alot of experienced players expect more at the end of the month.

Thanks to all
Adam
