Admin Position on League Upheavals bear_music     5/23/2002 15:12

As many of you are aware, there have been recent upheavals in Pinoy, and before that in other leagues. After thorough investigation, in each case our response has been to make certain changes at the staff level, in order to continue building dedicated, productive teams that are all functioning on the same wavelength.

Moreover, it has always been league policy not to air out our personnel problems publicly. It would be easy for us to explain in detail why we have taken the actions we did, but to do so would amount to an outright public criticism of certain former staff, and we do not think this is fair. While we might gain temporary, personal satisfaction from “defending” ourselves and our actions (and believe me, we could do it), the ultimate result would be that ALL Elite staffers would be operating under the fear that if they “do something wrong” we will make it public and attempt to convince the membership that their loyalty was misplaced.

We are not willing to do this. We will not discuss with anyone, even other staff members, why we have taken the actions we did. We will not go into detail because we appreciate all the work these individuals have put into Elite, we wish them no harm, we are more disturbed than anybody else that it has come to this.

We can tell you that this was not an action hastily taken. There is always more than one side to the story, and we at least have the dignity not to throw our side open to the public. The situation that culminated in these latest actions in Pinoy has been under investigation for 3 months. We began investigating because of numerous complaints, from members and staff alike, about the conduct of certain individuals within the league. The persons involved were counseled individually, and warned repeatedly that certain actions of theirs were unacceptable to management and that there would be consequences if they were not corrected.

There is nothing more that we could have done. We readily acknowledge that the individuals involved were “popular” with the Elite membership, but that is not at issue here. I repeat, we are sorry that the situation has come to this, but we had good reason for the actions we have taken and there is no turning back from them.

We would hope that all who are upset by what has happened will tender us the respect of accepting that we had valid reasons for our actions, and that it is our very impartiality and integrity that precludes our discussing these reasons with any non-involved Elite members or staff. Whatever took place is strictly between our management and the individuals involved.

The league is always acting in the best interests of its membership, we have no other reason for existing. However, our perspective is necessarily broader than any individual’s can be; we have our finger on the pulse of 20 leagues and 15,000 members. We need the goodwill of all of you, but at the same time we cannot satisfy every individual 100% of the time. With this in mind, we request that all attempts at organized boycotts of the leagues by certain disgruntled staffers and players who “support” them not be given credence by your participation in them.

Any league is bigger than the few vocally negative individuals within it, and the “silent majority” is only being damaged by any public support of such upheavals. We will not allow ourselves to be pressured by such heavy-handed tactics. There is a well-established chain of command that can be followed by anyone, staff or member alike, who has a legitimate grievance that wants addressing. We have no patience and no concern for those who attempt to step outside these channels and exercise power over an entire league to advance their personal agendas. We stand by our record: of all leagues online, we are by far the most responsive to our members’ desires. Please, all of you, grant us the courtesy of assuming our good intentions, as we have proven them over and over again.
