Discussion: Getting released from a team you don't want to play for any longer

Just to put a end (almost to this) I received a call from this manager, his request for my release is that I and the manager of my new team give him our word, that for the next upcoming tournaments including world's, if my new team play's against his team that I sit out that game and not play.

How ridiculous and obsered is that.

SSUSA staff does this not look like revenge?

Is this in the spirit of the game we all want to be a part of?

How can an organization stand by and allow this?

Why would an organization that is comprised of paying, playing members allow this?

Why would staff not interject and say enough is enough and release me.

Please give some kind of reply that makes sence.

Please don't quote me the rule, book I read it.

Waiting for some kind of sencible answer.

Discussion: Getting released from a team you don't want to play for any longer

Dave,

Thank you for that. I will try to give you a accurate account, I got into a heated argument with one of the sponsors of the team. After said argument I decided I no longer should be playing on his team and flat out quit. Sponsor 2 asked that I not do that, but it was to late for me. Sponsor 2 asked for my shirts which I gladly gave to hime cleaned and folded.This all happened 2 weeks prior to Eastern nationals.
I asked sponsor 2 if he would be short at the nationals that I would help him out, do to the fact i was playing with a 50's team and they are 55. He said no give him shirts back I would be released.

I thanked him and proceeded to go my way, got a call from a 55 team that was short for this tournament and was allowed to play on that team after getting clearence from SSUSA.

At the tournament as luck would have it the 2 teams faced off against each other and he made a big stink saying he had not released me. Lucky for me we had email confirmation from GM.

Now he claims he only release me for that tournament (is that possible?) obviously the team i played for in Raleigh beat him and send them to looser bracket which he did not like.

I have just found out that he has to formally release me in order me to be able to play with my new 55 team. (wow) I have purchase tickets to go to Vegas with the other team, I am out about $800.00 for me and the wife.

As I stated above he is being a "big PUSSYCAT" about this. What to do?

It's all about revenge for him, nothing owed nothing borrowed. If that was the case I will pay him off just to get through this.

Wish it was as simple as throwing $200.00 in his face. Like the saying goes "revenge is a plate best served cold"

What can be done at this point? any suggestions?

Thanks

Gentlemen, I think we can all agree that there maybe reasons for no release uniforms, equipment ETC. At the end of the day if all these matters are resolved if the player no longer wishes to play on that team he should have the right to move on.SSUSA should be siding on the players side, they are the main reasons this organization is what it is today, not the managers the players!

What if the shoe was on the other foot, like some teams, the players buy there uniforms I.E. pants, shoes and belts. Now the managers don't want or need the player any longer and just to mess them up for the season they won't release them is this correct. (STAFF)

What can be done in that case. SSUSA does not want to be involved. Well, I think they need too. I think there is two many circumstances in this issue for SSUSA not to get involved.

A) player no longer wants to be on team.

B) team won't release.

Someone explain why player is the looser here. Team is not going to get this player back no matter what, the relationship is over at this point.
Now player is penalized for wanting to move on, again why should the player be the one to have to give up the rest of season because of this, SSUSA needs to see this for what it is.

These is the best way to describe this, you go out on a date, you buy flowers, you go to a great restaurant, spend a lot of cash, come to find out the person likes someone else. Do you get your money back, do you have the right to tell that person they can't go out with anybody else. I don't think so, man up. cut your loses, next. SSUSA needs to step in tell the managers they have no leg to stand on and release player, period.

Remember staff "this is a game we play" "acting like a little girl" doesn't make it right. Tell the manager they have to release period. players just want to play.

Dave,

That sounds like a malicuous intent on the part of the player, he was asked to give things that were given to him back and I believe he should return in the same or as near the same as they were given to him. breaking the bat was not the manner of finishing the issue.

by giving the equipment back should have ended this matter in a civil manner.

Sorry don't agree with the player on this one.

To staff, if your are playing for a manager who not a good person, who has bad intent, why would someone stay on that team or better yet be forced to play for such a individual,

I don't understand this rule or the validity of it.

Again players make this sport to managers!!!!!!!!

Benji4,

I like the way you think, these guy is a pussycat and needs to get his ass kick, but won't fight like a man he will call the cops and have me arrested. so point taken, but unfortunately I can't do it. I am a business owner and have to much to loose.

Pussycats will be pussycats.

I just don't understand how this issue has never been address by the members of this organization. We are the members, paying members. we should be protected by this organization. I agree with the one time a year team change but this is total wrong.

I would like to file a grievance against this manager, to staff is that possible?

Thank You for agreeing with me SFTF, I think we need SSUSA to change this rule asap.

I hope all the read this give input so that staff realizes this issue and would look into correcting.

It is understandable that SSUSA would take this position, but at the end of the day the rules state you can only get release once, so that once should be a decision a player makes not the manager.

We play the game not the managers.

That is the point, not someone who wants revenge because you don't want to PLAY anymore on that team.

All that person is trying to do is prevent the player from playing. Change the rule, make it so that the players have this one time option.

The truth does not matter, its not why someone leaves a team, it's that they want out, for whatever reason.

Question: do you need a reason for a divorce? who is right, does it matter, no the fact is you want out, period!

Needing to understand this.
1) you are playing for a team half way through the season and you want out.
2) team ask for your shirts back and you give them back.
3) Team does not release you.
4) You ask why, they say the want to hurt you for quitting.
5) SSUSA says you need a release.
6) Can't get one, what next?

My question is:: do we not all pay membership dues here, not to the managers but to this organization?
So should the organization not step in and tell the manager he needs to release you?
What is the point of paying membership if they will not step in a clear this matter up?
The managers have the power to not let a paying member play for the rest of the year? (how is that correct)
I understand you can only be release once, but that should be automatic if the player request, not a mangers decision.


Someone please explain how the paying member is getting screwed here.

I like to know, why there are no tournaments on the calander on long weekends anymore, i.e. 4th of July,Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Seems to me way back when those where the best Tournament weekends around.

Just wondering?

Discussion: why?

Benji4,
I guess you and I have a miss interpitation of what each of us was trying to accomplish, no hurt feelings on my part.

Not trying to throw anyone at SSUSA under the bus, just trying to get them to have an informative webpage, that would keep us all informed on status of team we may face down the road.

I am 6'2 230 lbs and play on both 50 and 55 teams.

Hit 3, 4 or 5, throw right and hit righty.Team I play on Florida Automated and Team Impact.

Wishing I lived in Cali, because I know your team, watch you all play in Tennesse last year and would have enjoyed playing for or against.

Next time we are in the west coast or you guys are in the east will say hello.

Take care and good luck with your season.

Manny

To MR.Benji4 you may not be trying, but you accomplished your goal sir.

I only was using examples so that we may have some input to the powers to be in this organization. Apparently you may be seeking employment with said organization.

I sir am not.

Bottom line is the webpage here is not keeping up with the times, posting of results should and can be done on a day to day bases or a timely manner.

As for being a winner Mr.Benji4 I have won my fair share of tournaments and all tournament selection. I play to win everything and anything.

As for picture taking I was just using that as an example of how current that webpage is kept, not perfect by no means but up to date.

I don't want to get into a pissing war with you, so let's just leave it at that.

But one last thing, if I could find away to make the kind of money that is being made on running these tournament, you could rest a sure that the webpage I would use would be state of the art.



Mr.Benji4 I see you don't reveal your information on who you are sir. Why?

Mine is posted for all to see.

Wizkid very profesionaly stated and written. Maybe you can meet up with Benji4 and get him on the same page. LMAO!!!!!

Discussion: why?

Mr. Curveball, I have run tournaments in the past. Before the age of technology, so don't tell me how hard it is. As for deadline, if you set it make it so.
We as players would like and expect to be able to attend tournaments that are managed as best as possible, specially after paying the large sums that all senior tournaments cost, along with the simple prize packages ( look at a young buck tournament and see what I am talking about).
All I asked was, a timely manner for gametes and results to be announced and posted.
As for the pictures, now that you ask. I can go to the ISSA/ISF webpage and see, not only teams that won, but players who won MVP and action pictures of tournament play. Just a nice way for reconition on there part. And they do it over night, with same amount of teams.

With all the funding that SSUSA has, maybe they need a better webpage manager so they can simply access and post information in a timely manner..

And thanks BenJI4.

Why does it seem that other organization (without going into details) seem to be able to post information on tournaments faster than SSUSA.

They post the schedule earlier.

They post on going results quickly.

They even post pictures of team and players.

They post full results in less than 2 days after tournament.

How is possible they can and SSUSA can't.

Just questions.

Thank You
