I agree with D.J. Have strict guidelines and live by them. You can't change the rules from one week to the next depending on who shows up and who complains. I can understand why Graystone is ticked if indeed what they are claiming is going on. I haven't seen any response from BASA, or Wolf(Class Act). Let me ask this though. Seems that Graystone isn't afraid of anyone or even trying to play down. It seems that they want to be apart of BASA more than anything and are getting cut short because of the shortage of Comp teams. Look at it from their point. They were super rec last year and was able to go play everywhere there was a BASA tourney. Now they have to where there is a competive division and hope that 12 to 16 or whatever number is a good number show up. It also seems that the shortage of Comp teams coming out or driving 6 hours due to they only get say about 3 games if they win if only say 8 teams show up on the regular. With that being the case, would BASA think about changing the format of competitve in the events where there are say 6 or 8 teams to a round robin? That would insure the comp teams of more games and make the division even more attractive to teams like Class Act and The Storm.
I feel like no team is scare to play Graystone, No offense, I have watched them play and know some of the players, they are a real good team. But any team can be beat on any given day so let them play! I think it has more to due with BASA then the other teams, even if teams are crying about GS, BASA doesn't have to give in to any of it. And as far as the tournament directors, these are BASA sponser events, therefore BASA has the right to say who can be in any tournament or they won't back it. Now you know this will take some balls and backbone but it would stop all of this. It really about the long term growth of BASA or the short term money, BASA has choices, will they do the right thing? All money ain't good money!
Carlos, you played in a major tournamant in Indy last week and went 1-2. And there are a whole lot teams in Kansas this weekend that are not scacred of Graystone. So stop trying to play in these open tournaments and go play where they waiting on you to come around that corner. Or you can play with the Graystone 2!!!!
PS.....Stay on PACE!!
I heard all of tha stuff that was said.First off,class-act isn't afraid to play anyone at anytime.Early in tha year i did say i was putting my team together to play G.S.,storm and etc.At tha same time I didn't no G.S. was being bumped up bcuzz they didn't win tha basa crown.I talk to you often carlos about things in genaral and not one time have I said nothing bad about you or your team.When we won it back to back we didn't play that whole year in basa.We broke up and I build a team under tha right guide lines of tha basa to play in tha world in 2000.We are not coming from MY point of view is bcuzz of certain plane tickets that where off tha chain,and I'll never go to a tournament half cocked ever!! So like I said b4 tha reason why class-act is not coming from MYYYYYYYYYYY point is tha plane tickets.I'll be in Nashville playing in tha 12 hr tourney.Have a great weekend and god bless all tha people that are in need of a HUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!! O yeah when i talked to Mr.Moore tha only thing I told him is that one of my coaches been trying to talk to you and I never talked to Herkel or Mr.Drake!! so someone has lied to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If anything I would've xpect you all to be in Nashville with tha rest of tha big boyz.with a prize $$ like that I just knew you all where in music city!
" FAN OF THE GAME" IT'S GETTING LATE IN THE DAY AND I JUST COULDN'T FOLLOW WHAT THE HELL YOU WERE SAYING...SO PLEASE TRY IT AGAIN. I WASN'T IN INDY BUT C-O-L-U-M-B-U-S......I-N-D-I-A-N-A. I WENT 2 AND 2. WHAT ABOUT THE TEAMS FROM KANSAS? I GUESS THAT LAST WORD WAS SUPPOSSED TO BE SCARED.
WE WERE GOING TO NAPTOWN JUST LIKE YOU WOLF. YOU ARE PLAYING IN THE MUSIC CITY CLASSIC WITH PRIMETIME....WHY DIDN'T YOU TAKE YOUR TEAM THERE? WE ARE NOW IN THE CITY SLAM HERE IN CINCINNATI....YET ANOTHER WHITE TOURNEY.
We where going to Nap until one of our sponsors ran a little to late of stoping tha plane tickets to shoot fly sky high around 3P.M. yesterday.Class-Act wouldn't made any trip this weekend bcuzz of that.That's tha price I'll have to take when dealing with players from all over!
LET THEM PLAY SUPER-REC,BASA STAFF YOU LET SUPER-RE PLAY REC LAST WEEK,WHEN THOSE SUPER-REC TEAMS SHOULD HAVE BEEN PLAYING EACH OTHER IN A ROUND ROBIN,THEN GO TO SINGLE ELIMENATION,SO LET THEM PLAY. IF COMP DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TEAMS LET THEM PLAY,REC TEAMS GOT THIER HEADS SMASHED IN LAST WEEKEND SO RETURN THE FAVOR BASA STAFF. THEN WE KNOW WHO HAS THE REAL TALENT IN BASA SOFTBALL INSTEAD OF SUPER-REC SHOWING OFF IN REC.
Sorry graystone that you have to deal with these type of problems, I enjoyed the games the Stars played with ya'll back in the days when they let you play, but to think that teams drop out when they hear your coming is crazy, I won't beleive a team like the Storm and Class Act would be worried about who is in the tourney when they have teams that r on your level, we have played all of ya'll at some point and I think is to close to call who will win all the time, I just hope they let you all play each other at some point and see who is the best, stop the talking and each sponser put up big $$$$$$ and winner take all play and if graystone wins then give Carlos GM of the year honors.......and MOVE ON and you don't need BASA to do this..........
Oh I forgot to respond to Coach D, the Stars never lay down for anyone we made a decision to not play cause some key guys were hurt and tired, kinda like wolf is doing this weekend if key guys can't go then why play...Kinda like you guys don't travel if everybody can't go or when everyone else is gone you stay home and win the money at Duke Park, lets keep it real every team that had a problem with us not playin in the chip had every chance to get there just like we did and could have played Class Act all day, please beleive we r not afraid of Class Act cause last I checked it's 2-1, But we run from no team NEVER HAVE NEVER WILL.......
i bet the "truth" was the 1st to quit..
What up DOUBLE KNOT 00!! U don't owe me an explanation I'm on the outside looking in whatever the reason for the decision is your teams business. That's why I'm not going to respond to your comments about my squad. See you in NAP! COACH D OUT!
Man I cannot believe all the stuff I am reading. Wolf & the Storm clutter this board day & night on how good they are. This is what happens when the lumps on the field take place. Both teams have probably lost any edge of fear that they had playing any other team. The softball nation has seen the ultimate girl move. Yall ran to the police for help!! Ha ha ha ha!
