Discussion: What do you think?

Can't make a slow team game dynamically slower
and keep up interest and investment and
rightly so.
Less gratification of slower game through
dumber equipment means less participation
ACROSS THE BOARD.
Only elite players or slow players will favor
dumbed down equipment.

Cool, Jeff.
Gary.
Both get raised.

Hey Bob.
The overwhelming majority will not support going
less than the present standard of good 44x375 balls
and senior level bats.
They've voted as in the SPA survey
and all you have to do is ask us and we'll tell you.
Good bats and balls works for us,
the great majority of us.
We don't need to attack or denigrate anyone
but Bob, listen to me.
No one is gonna or supposed to take it.
If SSUSA doesn't defend us from personal attacks
we are left to defend ourselves as we need and see fit.
Wouldn't you say?

No.
It's the wizard and the wand.
Better equipment raises the level of play
and positively effects play.
Softball is not golf.
It's a team sport and needs pace, speed and action
to sustain itself.
Lively bats and balls help create more interest, participation, motivation and gratification
to sustain interest and player investment.

There are important issues about
-bats/balls,
-HR's as singles/outs
-5 run innings
-Bat Cheating
-screens
-website decorum,
-pitcher conduct/style
-safety
-website standards
-personal accountability
-responsibility
-common decency
-common sense
-disparaging comments
-player centric softball philosophy
-association/manufacturer centric
softball philosophy
and
the darling of the new softball order,
Free defensive substitution
just to name a few,
all of which drive ground and color
all the discussions.

To see the bickering is not paying attention
or getting what is going on.
The great majority of those who read, play
and talk about what we are saying
get us, who's who
and care about and know
who's zoomin' who.

There's a movement a foot that would favor
some manufacturers and associations regarding the caliber of balls bought and used
and it needs to be checked and examined
for its value and necessity to us
and our game.

I get much encouragement from friends, players
and colleagues through various media and in person for fighting the good fight and
daring to represent the players,
our interests
what we want and stand for.

C'mon, Mark.
And while I nodded nearly napping,
Suddenly Mark started rapping somewhat louder than before.
Saying something?
Nevermore.

Don't you guys get that a real competitor
doesn't hear the cries, taunts even praises of
"the crowd", the herd, the anonymous ones
who often belch and fart phrases
and only when hidden and protected
by the thickness and odor of the pack.

"Respite, respite and Nepenthe".
What a relief you two, Mark and Jeff.
Real people, accountable and identifiable
what a blessing and tonic for the spirit.

More unaccountable characters.
Goodie.
I'm starting to wake up.

What makes you think any of us or the super majority of us
have any respect for anyone
who doesn't have the guts, dignity or self respect to identify himself
to another human being he's being critical of.
Let's let that reverberate and sink in a little more.

There's nothing healthy or good about being a well adjusted
to a sick or unfair society.
How do like them apples, fellas and gals?

Gary you disingenuous poser.

Garocket.
I'd give you a formal welcome back
if you ever told us who you were?

That's not what I meant and you know it, Mark.
Its refers to the web site's clowns.
Need a lesson in english
give me a call.

SSUSA's abdication of it's role as site
superviser/operator parented
the major conflicts
we've seen on this site.
They haven't taken enough of a stand
in defense of community against below the belt attacks by unscrupulous attackers.

And Captain Kirk, Spock or whoever you are.

There's nothing healthy about being well adjusted
to a sick/unfair society.

Captain Kirk.
That's hysterical.

Great comment, Dave
and telling.

I am judged by my community and not by
the website's administrators and its clowns.

This comes out of SSUSA unwillingness
to accept responsibility as the authoritative operator of this sight and to enforce
as per its own standards
in its and our behalf.
We have the right if not need
to defend OURSELVES
if SSUSA will not defend us from attacks.

This clown won't identify himself or the utter
filth and characterlessness of his repeated attacks with any apology
and then we do know he's a proponent
of the 52x275 ball?
Who is he and what purposes and masters
does he truly serve?
And now he wants to kiss and make up?
Get the F outa here!
You're accountable, son
whether you want to be or not.

We, the community who have been paying attention
know and can sense exactly what's going
and who's who and the longer and more
this gets played out
the clearer it will all become.

SSUSA need to uphold its community
and standards of the web site
and remove disparaging individuals/responses
from our midst.
Check on Gary C and look at the character
of his responses and then check mine
if you have ANY doubt about what I'm saying.

Gary and SSUSA.
You're not fooling anyone and the longer
this all plays out the clearer it will
ALL become.

But Rodman had REAL game, G
which is why everyone put up with this stuff,
including the refs.

This community knows the difference between
Gary C and me and SSUSA would like me out of the way for more than one reason, I suspect.

Gary C's only mantra is to
antagonize me and getting me kicked off the site.
If you don't see that
you are blind or have another interest
in his behavior and effect.
