The CIFL has such a great potential to be a good league. Jeff and Eric just dont listen to the right people. Keller is a "Dee Dee Dee" (Carlos Mencia!!). I have received so many overwhelming e-mails supporting our team, and agreeing with my stance. I did expect to be banned. I also expected a phone call from Jeff or Eric so we could talk. Never happened. The league has 10 different sets of game rules. Almost every game we played there was a different set of rules, I addressed that with a league official at 1 of our games. SHe stated that the league head of officials would call me. It never happened. I spoke with JEff and Eric a few weeks ago. We both agreed that when **** hit the fan here, we (both sides) would refrain from throwing each other under the bus, and we would put all responsibility on the teams finincial failures on the owners. We spoke at length about that. Then Keller runs his mouth, throwing our GM and interm-head coach under the bus. I spoke at length with the K-Zoo staff, Port Huron staff, and Miami Valley Staff, we all had the same feelings. League has potential, just listen to the right people. Heck I even had the guy who was in Kellers position last year e-mail me. The fact remains that no matter what, the league could not fix our finincial woes, but either could the coaching staff, or the players. I would not have been sooo negative toward the league, but when they start publically pointing the finger at the absolute wrong people, I have something to say. They actually pointed the finger at thoses who stayed here all the way through the b.s., cared about the team, and wanted to finish out the season. So we got screwed by the league because we cared. And Im not saying Jeff and Eric are DIRECTLY responsible for that, but one of their employees is, so that holds them accountable. Just like if one of my players went up into the stands and started a fight, I would hold myself responsible, that player is under my direction. Step up Eric and Jeff, thats all I ask. This team and staff had great heart and compassion for the game that is evident when they decided to play for free bacisally the entire season. But when your staff members say "you should have travelled 6 hours on your own to play if you love the game so much", " Your players stole equpiment" and to make up a quote from an owner, and print it as a quote.......thats just wrong.
On the leagues message board that stated that they have taken over control of our team. Should I then send them all of the outstanding bills that Kris, D-Lo and Justin have accumulated? Just a thought. I might give everyone we owe money to, the leagues office number.
