One Week Later

So it's been a full week since WAKA started swinging the Ban Hammer and crushing fools in the Bayshore Division. So what's new?
  • DPT called for a boycott, and so far 20% of Fall 2010 registered players have pledged to never play for WAKA again. Add to that three team captains who have told me they are willing to get their teams to leave. This is quite amazing since we haven't even announced details on a new place to call home. Speaking of...
  • Plans for a new home are in the works.  Please keep in mind that WAKA locks up fields a year in advance... whereas our people are scrambling to get something official in two weeks time.  I think we'll be able to speak more about this later in the week, and I think most people will be happy with the outcome.
  • To my knowledge, four of the five people banned have not heard ANYTHING from WAKA since the infamous MLoop letter.  Johnathan Korb, the Director of Customer Service, has responded to emails sent by members of our league.  Thankfully, he's said in a few of those responses that the blog wasn't really a factor in the bans.  This revelation would be a huge victory for Freedom of Speech if only he were able to offer up another explanation.  So far, he's hiding behind "privacy concerns."  That is also an acceptable excuse... but it implies he would be willing to tell us banned people what happened.  Sounds like it's "Open Letter to Johnathan time!"

    "Dear Johnathan... you have my email address.  Please let me know what WAKA policy I violated, what altercation I was a part of, or how I failed to adhere to your published rules of kickball.  Considering that I was told by both Tyrus and Jaime (both WAKA contractors) that a banned list existed due to comments on the blog, I can only assume that you are a liar.  I know of at least two other people who heard the same thing from those contractors.  So please, correct my ignorance.  Thanks in advance."
  • One of the five banned people has had conversations with WAKA.  I hope that person comes forward and tells their story.
  • Finally, it was quite cold this weekend.  Gorecki did a horrible job estimating the amount of firewood needed to keep his guests comfortable.  Thankfully, Bull came to the rescue:


Have a good week.

    Damn, when's the WAKA-shirt burning party going down? I'm glad I got that "PAL Fields" tattoo and not the "WAKA" one.

    1:25 - 1:32... why is everyone wearing purple??? lol

    Alison said...

    Too funny, Brooke! Didn't notice that before! I guess that's either a purple light being cast from the red and blue shirts in the fire or just the way that fire makes the crowd look. I think Bull even says at the beginning of the video that they might burn purple.

    Hi Liger Visor!!!

    Hello Alison, you miss me??

    I have been just soaking up all this Waka information, as I'm a little concerned as to what kind of future I have.

    You have a very bright future ahead of you Liger Visor, you get a new Captain to give you a home!

    Alison said...

    Yes, Liger Visor...miss you. What have you been up to? I've see a one of your brothers a few times lately.

    I agree with Bull! I'm sure you have a full and productive future ahead of you. Looks like you'll have a new head to grace, a new league to take part in, and all sorts of new fun to be had!
