Badonk's Donks Stables

Who’s been blackballed?
I guess there could always be a first time for everything.

I said possibly Sir … and as we know that is what happens in society today … facts are facts but in the “pc” world where the word NO is a 4 letter word and the loudest voice in the room wins b/c no one wants to “offend” anyone … it is what it is

And on this subject at hand my facts will show true … so my suggestion is not to try to reinvent the wheel and go with the system that Replay has tested and seems to be working out … The numbers are looking you right in the face … but the not wanting to “offend” anyone will be the downfall here … A solid foundation is needed here and this is being built on Wish Bones

Is that some type of half handed threat? lol

REPLY TO GOATSOUP
Prior to your two most recent posts, I sent you a private message in hopes that we could take this conversation there.

So YOU feel the need to comment on a post I created to Priscilla and John? A post where I did not mention you at any point! Now tell me please, who is taking things personal? In no way, shape or form was my post offended by anything but simply a “Thank you” to two people who I personally think created something I wanted to credit them for. If you can read anything else please do show me.
I don´t consider myself being a cool kid nor in any click. Now go ruffle someone elses feathers as I have no intension of getting into a pissing contest with you. You were not a part of my post whatsoever

Goat - your input and energy around this league discussion have been very valuable to John and me. We posted the concept to get feedback - and it is great when people take the time to offer ideas. Several people love the idea of three different days because if we played on, say, a weekend day - even at three different times - that might mean they couldn’t play at all because of family stuff or work, etc. But the days and times we have suggested so far are strictly “for example” and I think the teams that sign up to play could help decide the final schedule. Obviously it shouldn’t conflict with any TPP or Donk tournaments. We’ll digest all the feedback we got and then send a proposal to RP Monday so we can get up and running and really screw it up! This will be a work in progress, as all new leagues have been. So calling all “beta” players! I think if we get off the ground RP will become more flexible and, if we wish to go to a one-day one start-time format, approve it. Goat - I hope you will play so you can continue to offer feedback. That is the only way this is going to be as successful as The Donks and TPP. (This thing still needs a name! )

Hmm. I like that. Going with the barnyard theme that came up today during the League game, I thought of The Stable Muckers. (Which also raises the possibility of The Unstable Muckers.)

NEW LEAGUE

Calling all Donks and TPP members! Welcome to the BARNYARD MUCKERS!!! We are, after all, Donks. Sometimes the manure gets pretty deep around here! The proposal has been sent to RP and is pending. But a few critical things have been decided (thank you all for your feedback).

  1. There will be teams of three, no sub. This will help ensure more people form teams and play. Too, with the flexibility of team members switching off slots during a given week, subs aren’t as crucial. Worse case, play with 1 or 2 for that week and do really well!

  2. We are going with the format of three separate games on different days at different times. We need help from our EuroAustralAsiaZealand crowd to tell us what the best time is for them to play.

  3. The teams for this quarter are “open” teams - meaning there are no requirements other than everyone be a Donk or TPP member. We hope to debut next week. As we are getting up and running, new teams will be allowed to enroll late (cut-off date TBD) as their playing fewer games compromises them only.

  4. Scoring will utilize the RP system of a point for every place in inverse order of finish with a 5-point bonus for first.

  5. Games will have a 20K buy-in, so there is a decent prize structure per game (as there is no way to do a final prize structure)

  6. This is a work in progress! It will be a bumpy road to start - so hang on! Bear in mind that some of the things RP says can’t be done may be doable if we are successful.

That’s probably what you need to know to form a team and let me know 1. Names of the three members and the Captain (who communicates with me) and the team name. (If you want to be on a team and don’t have one, just post here or on the TPP site - or both - and see if you can round up some others. This isn’t a lifetime commitment! Team requirements will change next quarter - October 1st. (Send me a friend request if you are Captain if we aren’t connected yet).

Go Muckers!
