Right or Wrong ¿¿
Football has been going great since we came back from winter break and things are slowly coming together nicely. Our Import QB will arrive Feb 14th and then we have two preseason games before we start the season. I do have some concerns about the league though since rules seem to change depending on whatever of the top 3 teams (teams with money) wants. They spent weeks and weeks working on new Import rules because after a few teams merged and some dropped it the top league left with only 5 teams. At one point they had 10-12 teams that were going to be willing to move up for one good league but it all fell though a few times. The new import rule was as follows; You are allowed to have 1 US/Canadian/Mexican/Japan passport player and then 1 European (no US/Canadian/Mexican/Japan passport player so duel passports were counted as the first one) passport player allowed on the field at the same time. EVERYONE knew this rule then a couple teams decided to sign extra Americans anyway then cry about it to the president of the PLFA and he seemed to just drop to his knees as take whatever they give him. So now the new rule is the top 3 teams (the teams he cares about and listens to since they have money) can use the 2 American players whenever they play each other but can not when they play the other 3 teams (teams with not much money and are looked down on by the president). My question next was so what happens when its playoff time and for sure one of the so called bottom teams makes the playoffs. Will the top 3 teams cry and get to use their imports anyway? 3 days later I got the answer that once again the president dropped to his knees and let the top 3 teams do whatever they wanted to him. Its a complete joke that so called president of a countries football league would allow such nonsense and make special rules for some teams and not the others because they have money. If anything else in life sport should have the same rules for everyone. I’m not talking about money because these teams that have all the money have earned it for sure, so they can afford nicer equipment, better fields, better team gear etc. I’m talking about the blatant favoritism for these teams for whatever reason it may be. This makes our league look like a joke and that incompetent idiots are running it. No wonder all these other teams decided not to move up in the end. I talked to 2 of the teams that were thinking about moving up and they told me that they did not trust the president and he just proved their suspicion by pulling this last minute. One of the main reasons I am writing about this is because I have had multiple players and a couple coaches ask me to because no one will say anything about it. One of them is a National Team coach as well. Its also sad because Poland has the biggest fan base than any other country and has the potential to be a top league in Europe but if this favoritism and corrupt BS keeps up it will never happen.
