One week prior to the Winter finals, the indoor soccer management at Richmond XL took a dramatic turn and made changes on very short notice. The schedule was posted and we were all randomly subject to try to figure out how it would all work?
-No Captain email to explain until verbally requested.
-25 minute quarter/semi/final games.
-A consolation game if you lose the quarter final (dual losers bracket).
-2 minute overtime (yes that was over before we knew it).
-Many shootouts (which caused lots of delays through the weekend schedule) since most games ended in OT tie.
- It generally works out to losing play time in finals for the teams who get to semi/finals.
-All teams should *not* get to play in finals week as that's not fair in the efforts to make it to the finals to begin with.
Now as of this spring season, XL has scheduled us from 8 games down to 7, while shortening the playoff weekend times down to week 8 all in one night of play. Why? Great question!
To add yet another season into our full time year of play so they can charge us another $750 team fee in the calendar year.
If you dislike or disagree with these recent changes, please sign this petition so we can share with the XL Sportsworld owners that we do not like this new model.
Perhaps, there was room from improvement in the old model; however, a better way of doing it would have been appreciated. But this was too dramatic, too hectic, too apt to injure more players and a way to squeeze out more money without adequate or fair socialization of the changes.
