Wrong stan. Cricket was invented to give council's an excuse to deny footballers access to their precious fields.
SaF Every cricketer is a tragic then
"Is "our" association as dedicated to those who enjoy football and choose it as a sport?" of course. But not as much as to those who love it and choose it as their preferred sport.
Community resources should be shared fairly amongst the community. If anything, the lager portions of the community should get larger access to the community resources.
And on the 12 team comp, If I understand your suggestion correctly it requires 22 normal rounds before the finals start which is not practical. Unless you meant "the other pool Once" which is 16 rounds all together. Two issues, if you pay the same money as others you want as much games. And still an unbalanced comp as you play some teams once and other teams twice. The point is that you never find everyone happy with any system. Not as easy as it sounds.
anyway really most importantly I think next year is that club canteens are rated and that get considered when clubs and ground are taken into account who hosts finals. I mean what good is it if your watching games and cant get a decent sausage sandwich, bacon and egg roll, hot pie with sauce or some clubs shoudl get creative and have some felafel rolls and kebabs ......... These are the big issues
I spoke with the GM today, as you an imagine each club involved has requests to have certain teams together or at certain times or certain fields etc so he has to go though it all and then try to fit in as many requests as possible. I know I had to request our 12/2's to be after 11.30 as some of the boys have high school entrance exams to sit on Saturday morning.
So I guess once he has all those sorts of things sorted as best as possible we will see it, good luck to him, not a job I'd want that's for sure
