The Indoor people love to accuse the Arena Fans of trashing the Indoor leagues. From what I've seen the Indoor people trash each other far more that the the Arena people ever have.
I have never in my life seen such unprofessional infighting between a group of businessmen. When you look around the empty barns you play in and wonder why, it might not be the games themselves the masses are avoiding but the unprofessional bush league actions of the people financing the sport.
It's really a good thing not many fans come here, this is embarrassing.
If all that effort was put in to promoting the sport in a positve light and worry about your own concerns the sport might get more respect.
No need to bash, it's more productive to raise the standards of your own teams and leagues instead of lowering yourself to the level of what you seem to complain about.
Now I know that's not any different than what the common joe is put through by their own insurance companies, I understand the inx industry relies on deny, deny, deny as a tactic to frustrate people to the point of giving up on a claim, so why not stop the BS and just tell the players up front what they will (or will not) be provided? Sounds reasonable to me.
I will again state, the SIFL is not competing against the IFL or any other League. We wish nothing but success to ALL Leagues, it only makes the sport stronger as a whole! Our focus and commitment is to our team, players, fans and communities. I personally would not be associated with the SIFL if i did not believe in the success and the positive outcome it will have.
ALL players MUST be covered by each team BEFORE the step on to the turf. Each team MUST have Workman's Compensation or Catastrophic insurance as the players well being comes BEFORE profits.
The SIFL insists on player coverage as we seek safety first before entertainment. Any contrary statements are unsubstantiated and deserve no additional attention.
If it is contradictory to the league requirements, then that T-cat tryout waiver
should be re-worded. It sounds like if one makes the team, they will NOT be
covered under ANY workman's comp policy and are considered as simply a hired
hand with no additional benefits.
What you say and what the waiver implies are two different things.
