I would like to congradulate the Force for a well played hard nosed football game. You guys deserve to be champs. I would like to comment on just how horrible this league was ran this year. If you put rules in place without a legitimate means of up holding said rules, then the rules really dont mean shit...Do they? Hell..the guy that came up with the rules didn't even follow them. He ran off like a coward when he had to present the Indiana championship trophy to us. I know my team kept the same players from week 5 on thru the rest of the season, I know for a fact that other teams did not. When asking the referees to validate this at one game they said, " Contact you commisioner because they could'nt do anything about it" Damn the commisioner was at the game and didn't do anything about it. Really!!!! I don't know if the Force added players or not. To me their record speaks for itself. They handeled their business all year long, week in and week out against the other teams in this league. They shutout every team they played in the playoffs, including my offense. I really am disappointed in how this game was ended. The Force deserved to have the trophy presented to them without being kicked off a damn field ran by 1 mouthy ass woman. She did the same thing when we came to play the Vipers. I hope the Vipers find a new home field next year! That was what both teams played for all year long was that damn championship trophy. I know its been 7 months for us. Why the hell couldn't we just finish the game, nobody was fighting, yet we get blamed for either fighting or starting fights in damn near every game we play in. We have not had a fight in any regular season or playoff game we played in this year. The player challenge is something that could happen in any game in the CRFL. Yet while that was going on they were ready to call the game. RULES ARE RULES....RIGHT WAYNE? By no means would I have agreed with a forfeit by the Force, but if you write something into law then law should be followed...right. We did not deserve to win that game and my players know what I mean. The whole damn thing makes me sad to be a part of semi pro football...period. I am disgusted about the way this game ended, about the way we played, about the way I called some of the game. I will be the first to admit that I did'nt call the best game of my young coaching career, I know alot of us can say we did'nt play the best ball of our careers either. Own up to it team, we got beat outright. Regardless whether or not they stacked their team or not, we got beat. If they did cheat, then I hope they feel terrible for it and don't go around calling themselves champions. If it is found out that they cheated then I hope they are stripped of the trophy and nobody gets it, because I don't feel like we deserve it. In closing I would like to thank every player that I have had an oppurtunity to coach in the past 2 years, I have learned alot and have made many friendships from coaching. I will always remember all of you and the times we shared together. Thanks again for everything!
I was going to wait till tomorrow to respond but hell I'm up. The player I question was Dusty Snyder #55 who wore #15 for the playoffs, yes Dusty did not have his ID present at the game but because the police were call his social security number was ran and his name (along with a photo ID) came up. All of my players have been with us since week 1 I dont have a problem presenting game film to prove it
Good luck to all CRFL teams along with the rest of Indiana Semi Pro in the offseason and see you in the 2012 season
aint you the one who told the vipers when they ask about adding some to make a better game against the force in the playoffs NO and that you was checkin there ID'S and if they dint have them there THEY WAS NOT PLAYING and if they did the vipers would FORFEIT the game period so the rules dont apply to the VP of the league anyone can give someone else's social everyone knows you have to present a id if asked he did not and still played by your own words mr VP you should of forfeited the game
We actually allowed them to add players 20 minutes before the game so we could actually have a playoff game. I watched Peckham sign a napkin for the vipers coaches wife saying it was fine lol. It doesn't matter anyways guys the player in question had an ID present thanks to Piqua PD, and he will be emailing his state ID to Wayne and whoever else needs it. The game wasn't even close get over it!
How many teams played with players from other leagues this year? Several of them did. They admited #96 from the Force was on the Eagles team earlier in the season but was also on the Force roster. Only thing to do would be address it in the off-season if you feel the need to change things.
Like I said on the other blog we flat out lost... We got out played and out coached!!
Our season isnt over lets prepare for our bowl game !!!
