Your sidenote is incorrect. It should have been our first up-wind break


If I remember right, we broke upwind, and were pulling down wind on the point in question. I agree you guys would have scored your first point in the upwind endzone (though it was not a break). By "complete the break" I only meant score the following downwind point following the upwind break.

The broader point that Casey and the orange team graciously took back the scoring pass at a crucial point in the game is valid regardless.

Sent out to league captains today:
"Hi Captains,
I have been inconsistent when about explaining the game caps. As of now, play all league games to a one-point soft cap. The cap goes on at 1:50 for game 1, 3:50 for game two. If you don't hear a horn then call your own cap.

When the soft cap goes on it means that the new maximum score limit of the game is one greater than the current highest score. Example: score is 9 to 11 and the cap goes on. The game ends when one team reaches 12 points.

I am aware that is not a traditional USA Ultimate cap. I am aware that games could run long. I understand that you might feel the cap could have affected the outcome of some of your previous games. Thanks for moving on.
-Casey"

Keep up the great banter you silly kids!

So we're basically agreeing on the same the same thing. Fiddlesticks. Can we also agree that Michael is a boy crying wolf? And his maladies, thankfully non-serious so we can mock them helped your team. When a defender bids I like throwing unmarked passes.

haha, the booklets caseyk handed out to the captains with the league rules, not the 11th edition rules. they made the right decision based on what's in the league binders.


They??? I'm sorry but all Cameron did was put his tail bt his legs... I'm the one that made the call in the end. So i'll take the blame... but please lets not give Cameron any credit for your team's win... seriously... Very Happy

Do teams finish the current point and add 1 or add 1 during the point?

I do not agree with that. His third injury occurred while dropping a wide-open goal. That didn't help our team at all.

I think you overstep calling it an injury. Maybe deeming it a snack break would be more appropriate.

No one is holding Kearney's hand this year and his inane post expecting sympathy is out of place.

Sympathy? That's what I was looking for? Damn, thanks for pointing that out.

Jacob wrote:
Considering the same TD that Kearney complains about secured him a free league for supplying his ample *sarcasm* knowledge and help to a fledgling captain at the draft while also pumping his own captain with information.

2 things here:
1. Never have nor will complain about the TD you mention. only <3
2. I was their as an advisor, meaning I advised when asked. I didn't get asked every pick from your captain, and I also told everyone the players I had little knowledge about. I mean you should know this, since you volunteer your time and immense amount of wisdom to the community so often.

And yeah, April, you are right, I'm glad it got resolved. Sorry I came off as such a dick.

Red team picking up a tall, athletic guy who can throw really far in the supplemental is unfortunate for everyone. Stupid supplemental putting the best player available on the best team.


Hey, remember that one time when tan team was really, really stacked and then got Jeremy from Springfield who was by far the best player available and the same day, pink team, who he could've helped out a whole ton, got....ME? I don't know anything about the supplemental draft, but I think it doesn't work that well.

At least I hustled hard and got the last two points at the end, if you wanted the win so bad just score...we pulled down 10-9

Also...we had 8 players ready to go at twelve, and you didn't...so we waited...I don't think I should be a bad captain in your eyes Smile

Darn you, Cameron! You took advantage of our "turn-it-over-and-hustle-on-D" strategy. Ya'll obligingly failed to score every other possession up to that point.

Vikki did a great job managing the "clock" as we saw it (with time outs). Very captainly of her.
