Recently, I posted a message in the club about where all the players have gone and why tournaments aren't running on a regular basis. It spurned, what I thought at least, was a good conversation about the state of Eliters and some good things and also what some thought to be problems. One of the main problems brought up was a perseived sense of favoritism by tds and those that run Eliters. I appreciate the fact that those that have the ability to delete club posts let that conversation take place, as I think it's good for discussions for us all to get better about certain things. However......... I log in today to play some games and see the list of "Players of the Month" on the main page, and what did I see?
Of the four leagues I play in, Euchy wasn't listed, Giny's POM went to a TD, and Criby and Spady's POM went to the leagues Head Administrator. Really? I don't know how those awards are decided, and I am by no stretch of the imagination implying that I should have been considered, but I'm just pointing out that this only strengthen's the argument that quite a few made in response to my post last month.
For those of you that "won" the POM, please don't take this personally, I think that all three of you I mentioned are a tremendous asset to Eliters. With the exception of a couple TD's with mood swings that seem to be caused by intoxication of one substance or another, I think the td's are fantastic, and quite frankly, your dedication to Eliters and running tournaments provides me with a lot of enjoyment, so i'm appreciative.
My intent isn't to be a "crabby pants" that always complains, but I had to say something due to the timing of the POM coming out and the conversation that just took place.
