2013 SPA World Series
Lemons:
I changed threads to avoid highjacking the other one.
First of all, no need for the formalities, Mr Woodroof died in 1962. :-)
I still do not understand the basis for the Dayton team's potential protest. If I protested every time that I played against someone that pissed me off I'd be out a lot of protest fees.
If I fully comprehended your post, the Dayton team had an issue with one of your players in an entirely different tourney and a different association. If I stated this correctly there it should have been a non-issue in SPA. I say this because Ridge has told me on more than one occasion that what happens in one assoc is irrelevant to another. He went on to use the analogy that 'if I was guilty of shoplifting in WalMart Target could not keep me out its stores'. He told me this in 2000 and again in 2007 (two separate incidents that had occurred).
Now I don't care if this is legally accurate or not because I'm only conveying what Ridge thought (as told to me).
Did I miss something germaine?

Thanks for changing threads and your answer, Bob. The alleged offense did happen in a different tourney, but it was SPA. Since our player immediately dropped off the other roster, we thought it would be a non-issue. However, when we played Dayton at Dalton, they were prepared to file a protest and Ridge told our player and manager that if it were upheld they would both be barred from SPA for a year. That is why I believe Ridge to be inconsistent. Regards, Mel

So the underlying issue was that the player in question didn't receive a formal release from his previous SPA team?
I don't want to run this into the ground.. just trying to get a better understanding.

BW, I think the underlying issue was Dayton's hard feelings since they hadn't beaten either of our Indy teams in a while. Regardless, I appreciate your inquiries and understanding. For whom do you play, in what division, and are you going to Vegas? Mel

It ordinarily takes something like roster or rule violations to file a protest. Amazing.
Mel, I play with Full Circle, a 65 team. Yes, we'll be in LV.

BW, We're a 65 team as well, but have no one who can hit it out regularly and only a couple who can hit it out at all. Good luck in Vegas and stay healthy. Mel
