I am always excited when new players come to Spady. However, the way some are being treated by others is disturbing, to say the least. It is not something new, it is something I endured myself as a new player in Spady.... Players don't want to pard with with you because of their "rating" or don't want to lose yeps. This is one of the reasons I rarely make a rated seeding or PS tourney. EVERYONE, new and old players alike, should be given a chance to play in any tourney they wish. This is suppose to be a league where you can play and have fun, but a lot of players seem to have forgotten that and take it too seriously, some even harrassing their partners with belittling, mean messages. All players, new and old, should be treated with respect and receive equal treatment. Some of the things that have been going on lately are just plain nasty and we don't need and shouldn't want those people in Spady, or in Elite for that matter. If you would all remember the "treat others as you would like to be treated yourself" rule, Spady/Elite would be the best league around.
