Jim, my response to that question is simply, "Who's ur tourney leader buddy? Wait, why aren't u the tourney leader since u started this mess?!?!
I'm simply saying, let's not lose sight of the real issue here. The ONLY reason I'm not in this tournament is b/c it was VERY clear from the start that there was ZERO leadership. How about focusing on that issue, the real issue, instead of implying something as pathetic as, "You're not in the tourney, Tom, so u can't speak." I wanted to be in the tourney but saw this coming a thousand miles away. Brent is in the tourney but u haven't replied to his comment, which boils down to what I'm saying. Why is that? C'mon, u should be asking JJ the questions, not me, & taking care of business since u started this.
BTW, what's w/putting all the onus & pressure on JJ who obviously isn't in a place right now to handle it?? U started this, Jim, finish it if he can't!! You're just lucky he at least tried to jump in to help u (even if he can't follow through any better). Seriously, instead of being mad at me after u read this, just remember that the truth is supposed to hurt, & that embarrassment u feel can be used to fuel a desire in u to GET THIS SH!T TOGETHER, MAN!!
I've watched at least 4 tourneys come together in AW & by now they run fine compared to this—hell, the first 2 worked like a dream compared to this!! There should be no difference here, but sonce it comes down to the leadership, there is a difference. I've been watching this train-wreck unfold for weeks & weeks now w/o seeing so much as one helpful gesture from it's hosts. But the hosts are clearly reading all this since they can take the time to reply to my post & imply, "Tom, the issues don't exist, you're not in the tourney so u can't know," as if this isn't all public. DUH!!
Common sense would have told JJ, if not u, that doing a team tourney was idiotic!! It's hard enough to get one on one games in different time zones to match up (which JJ should know & was gently warned about/reminded of), why double that problem w/teams in the 1st tourney?!?! Besides, NO ONE ever played teams here before!! WTF!?!? Seriously, people tried to give u guys advice & help from day one, but u two had it all together & just dismissed the advice u were given as if it was insulting ur intelligence . . . NOT . . . . A wise man listens to advice, a fool pushes forward on his own accord.
P.S. ~ Don't be mad at me, u asked for this. As I've been watching I can't believe how humble ur participants have been, not complaining but pushing forward on their own, patiently, w/o any guidance or help whatsoever from u or JJ.
