firstly im not 100% on either questions but my best guess it if ur trying to rescedule round 16 over the next 2 weeks (only 2) how are u gonna cope with any other partial washouts still hanging around from earlier on in the season, where as round 15 u have 3 weeks left and it is unlikely (not impossible tho) for a team to have 3 washouts aswell as round 15 still to play in the remainin 3 weeks.
and for the second part im assuming there was a meeting, and the discussed the difficulties of moving games around, u gotta member the work that is put in to each game being set up, whn u move games around 9as you would of u got rid of rd 18 and pushed the other rounds back) then u need to update various systems both for the games and for the reffereeing, all the people involed need to be infirmed of said changes, players coaches parents refs and others. i think the decided it was just easier to cancel the washout round then all they need to do is delete entries and appointments (why this decision was not made at the start of the season u might ask, and that one i cant answer lol)

--mmm-things need to be looked at from the grassroots up-not saying overnight-as obviously needs a lot of money!
But the adminstration of football in this country needs to be looked at-not all the goverment money just given mainly to socceroos and a league-needs to start at the grassroots- things arent set up right-
we have too many clubs-too many grounds-and too many divisions here!!
overseas- clubs share grounds-the grounds and facilities improve -because funds coming in from more than one club-
they have more teams-but in less divsions -6 team division is crazy!!!
should be minium 10-12 in division 1!!!
the standard will improve more-
a' league last team should be relegated and play offs from all of oz for promotion up-some of the rich clubs like marconi stallions etc with extra fundind and backing might gain an opportunity to move to the a'league-very interesting for everyone-bigger crowds in playoff games-!!
facilities will improve!!
we have great stadiums and grounds that hardly get used-go to homebush etc-there are grounds there that a vacant for three quarter of the year-and they are designed to handle the wet weather etc!!!
I could go on and on-
shame johnny warren is no longer with us R.I.P. johnny!
And many didnt play. If u look there was only about 2 grounds used on that weekend...Baulko and Lidcombe...everyone else stayed home....it was a waste of a fine weekend......Im with Giddy......poor planning and managing

i think its crazy,some teams havent trained or played for nearly two weeks,the rain hasnt been that bad and on top of that clubs have closed grounds ,even when councils have said they are ok.
went to some grounds on the weekend,when the round was cancelled,there was families kicking balls around with young kids 2-3 years old having a kick and play,so figure it out,if these little tackers can run around in the mud! why cant games be played,we have become over cautious its laughable!!!
Not "over cautious" giddy. The problem is with the jokes making the decisions. Always hear rubbish like ruining the parks, having dustbowls for playing surfaces, the park gets cut up, etc, etc. You even hear the usual BS about indusarnce matters. The parks have been around "forever" and the vast majority of us over, say, 40, will clearly remember playing on parks during the winter when the were literally covered in water. And the parks are still there. Plenty of press about people being fat but none about councils and clubs doing what they can to stop people from exercising
I can remember my young bloke in 99 playing in the rain and mud at Rooty Hill, poor kid played in goals that day and couldn't move as his feet were six inches under mud and the amazing part was this was around midday with games on after his.We just nead a bit of reality back at both councils and clubs in making decisiona to close grounds when its only spitting.
wasn't the game invented in the rain? good thing the english local councils weren't like this in the late 1800s - the game would never have come into existence if they closed the fields every time it rained over there!
