I currently have access to a fantastic venue 6 nights a week. 4 bucks a pop per night. Trouble is I can't be bothered organising it. Table at home is the easy and usually best option.
I agree entirely :guiness:

I agree NGD. But impossible to do when there's kids running about. Sorry about the thread hijack. Will there be any info regarding the MLC league on here as I'm not really a Twitter expert! :-\ :guiness: :guiness:

On closer inspection it turned out he hadn't realised you got a spare player in your zeugo set and was playing an 8-2-1.... Anyway the ringer was removed and the game was played.
Things turned sour though when it was remarked that he had probably played with an extra man in his first league game which everyone including the ref hadn't spotted (no one in the league ever played lets have a brick wall at the back, so the extra man just sort of blended in) that game ended 0-0. His opponent suggested a rematch to uphold sportsmanship obviously he was none too happy to find out he'd played against 11 outfield players. but the fella with the extra man was adamant that the game had been played, the ref hadn't spotted it and the result should stand and even said "well it's not my fault everyone missed it" Because ours is a fun league and a replay would be easy to organise I put it to a vote. A unanimous decision of a replay was the result and quite funnily the rematch ended 0-0.. Most parties were happy with this but the player who made the mistake now thinks everyone is against him and has become ultra competitive.
In my opinion because a rematch could be played I think that was the fairest decision. Has anything like this happened to anybody else.

Oh dear! Like you say it's a fun league! Why do people get so worked up about a game? I mean they are little plastic men, it's supposed to be fun not ultra competitive. I like my Wargames as well and that suffers from people who think they are real generals! Was in a club for a few months many years ago but I'm afraid I couldn't take it that seriously. I have never been competitive in the sense that I must win, it just doesn't matter that much to me. Even watching sport, I follow Southampton but I wouldn't say I was a great supporter (I won't pay stupid premier league prices for a start! So only go a couple of times a season or when my Lad buys me a ticket for a Christmas present). Always nice to win I know but if someone really wants to win, what can you do! That's why I tend to be a Billy no mates and play on my own, and you know what, I love it!!!
