04588

Response to fixture change
Saturday 29th December 2012

With the 2013 fixtures only a week old, we are already looking at Issue 2.

Further to the posting of 04583 least Saturday and no sooner was 04585 posted today, the other website has made a big point of changes to fixtures.

But before everyone reaches for their new I-phones, I-pads, tablets etc and start wading through theirs to spot the changes, they only refer to fixtures involving Prestatyn and Skelmersdale which have been switched following a point made here of the ridiculous situation of having Burscough and Prestatyn as a Bank Holiday fixture.

With those being the only alterations to six pages of fixtures, it does not get away from the fact that NOTHING has been done about the 36 teams in the 1st and 2nd XIs that still have the 5 home 2 away/5 away 2 home scenario at the end of the season.

Now that the festive season is on its way out, people can concentrate on the fixtures and see what a huge mess they are for the second season in succession.

As has been said on 04585. your webmaster has solved this for you but the Man Com won't accept that.

By the Man Com being unable and unwilling to correct its error, it is therefore evidence of a blatant attempt to predetermine who will and will not win the leagues next season as it is well known that the Man Com has its favourite teams. The only way to prevent this from happening is to reject the fixtures and remove the corrupt Man Com at the forthcoming AGM.

Take for instance Birkenhead Park. They might have had visions of a return to the top flight after just two seasons but that has been drastically reduced, having five out of their last seven matches away.

Do a thing once, do it correctly and you will be appreciated. Do a thing repeatedly, with errors, and you will be ridiculed.

Update
Sunday 30th December 2012

When your webmaster asked the L&DCC President, Eric Hadfield, about the fixtures by phone this afternoon, the only words he uttered were "The fixtures aren't being changed", at which point he hung up. A tortoise retreating into its shell. This is typical of the stubbornly dictatorial regime that clubs are up against. The Man Com thinks it cannot be questioned on anything it does.

One club queried its fixtures and received an extended response that was laughable. It was like the script from a TV soap. All to justify that what had been done was, in the Man Com's eyes, correct.
