for those of you not at the agm i came very close to getting a rule change that would have changed the msfl and i feel no justice in what has done , it is hard though when you are fighting the might of lions hendon and faithfold, and most of the board whose clubs redbridge and harman not only benifit from this but in harmans case have even got a nice passge into the premiership.
in simple terms clubs who have A and B team players in the prem and div 1 are allowed to drop a player down to as far as div 4 to gain in my opinion an unmoral and unsporting advantage.
i argued that zzfc and the other single clubs cant do this, temple fortune called my rule change ludicrous, harmans manager actully agreed with me only for his secretary the vice chairman to say ' if i had known you would stick up for neal id have sacked you'!
the rule i put in was simple to level the playing field no player should be allowed to drop more than one division whats the problem there it means that and A player in the prem can play in div 1 but not 4 fair enough no?
all the usual suspects had thier say about how their clubs had startd with nothing and now had many teams, that was compleatly irrelevant by they way!! fc team lions faithfold hendon all said the rule was fair!! yeah its fair to put lee cash into neasden c or josh bentley into hendon d or why not mike pearson into lions c actully he could as they are in the first...
anyway i lost 33-28 but you know what the top table 5 of them voted against us 2 run multi clubs so cant really blame them although i thought a board is meant to be unbias? the other 3 will read this why did you vote agaist me??
moving on i had a plan b , instead of players not moving down at all after 12 games i said make it 6 that is fair and stops them moving down for relagation and promotion games, the vote was equal!!!!!
went to the chairman who said it was defeated!! incredible
i emailed the board for an explanation and have had no reply at all so lets see what people out thee make of this
no wonder small clubs drop out
no wonder there are less teams this year then ever before
honestly i have always supported the msfl but i think there is no room for dinoasaurs and as a man who has run a single club for 10 years i need some help
faithfold c were voted to stay up by the way after being relagated from div 3
lets open this up to the floor
