The Gook has some things to say after everything that took course on playoff Sunday and let’s just say the Gook isn’t too happy. First off I would like to congratulate the Blues, Bulls, Practice Squad, and Rams for winning their respective division playoffs, congrats to all of you. Now it’s time to drop the pipebomb.
The Gook has been around since day 1 of league and I’ve stuck around pretty much all day for every playoff Sunday. It’s exciting and teams bring there A-game for the playoffs, but wow….I’ve never seen such pitiful displays and actions in any other playoff weekend compared to this one. I think I witnessed about 4 to 5 “potential” fights, but like most “potential” fights they never happen or transpire into fists being thrown. Gentlemen, this is a Sunday afternoon flag football league. We’re not the pros, none of us talk deserve or have the right to talk any trash to one another. We signed up for this league for the love of the game, to relive our glory days, the camaraderie, or you had nothing better to do on your Sundays.
Sure, it’s the playoffs the stakes are higher. We are all after a trophy and claim to the best of our division, but come one people this is for fun. Something I happened to notice about every scuffle is that I noticed they all happened in the C and D division. HMMMMMMMMM. Why would that be? In my world and opinion if any trash talking and scuffles are taking places they are happening in the A and possibly B division, because that’s where the best of the best in our league play. The best athletes and best teams, but maybe that’s where I’m wrong. The A and B division have more veterans and guys who have been doing this flag football thing for quite some time that they are more respectful to their opponents and play the game for the right reasons.
You C and D division teams are a little more inexperienced and youthful so maybe that’s why there’s lack for sportsmanship and maturity. You guys are in those divisions for a reason and it’s that you’re developing and maybe you’re just not cut out for the upper divisions. That’s ok, id been upset and angry to if I was stuck in mediocrity forever.
One particular scuffle I witnessed was just absolutely perplexed me. Why you ask? Because fans and spectators got involved. First off I’d be completely embarrassed if I came to watch my friend our son play and he got into a fight during his game. As a spectator I would think you’ve got problems and don’t know how to act like a mature adult. Though in this particular engagement spectators got involved and while I was watching I became and embarrassed and sad for these people just talking nonsense back and forth to each other. It was ridiculous, over flag football. Queue the Keyshawn Johnson, “Come on man.”
There are more important things in the world to become stressed and agitated about, this league is for fun. If that’s not you’re here for then leave and let the mature and respectful teams do what they do. I don’t know if you’re trying to look cool or tough in front of everyone, but you just look like an idiot because you couldn’t keep your temper in a flag football game. If we want to figure out who the toughest guys are in the league I suggest we have a league Royal Rumble. Each team picks one guy from their team to compete and the winner is named badass of the league. I already know who the final four would come down to, it would be Nic Reese, Cody Kennedy, Jacob Copple, and Billy Schoonover due to being professional wrestling savants and we know what kind of strategy it takes to win a Royal Rumble.
So gentlemen let’s stop with the bickering at each other and enjoy this game we love and the time we spend playing. After all the fights and quarrels I could tell our Commissioner was quite angered with a lot of people and teams this weekend and he rightfully should be, hell if I were him I would cancel the league so I wouldn’t have to deal with some certain people anymore.
Next debacle. My oh my this was a big deal this Sunday. The rule over bringing out new players who hadn’t played a single regular season game for the playoffs. A few teams were disqualified due to this rule and they rightfully should’ve been, but when the rule is not applied to other teams it’s not fair to everyone else. Yea life’s not fair, but rules need to be laid upon everyone and no one should be excluded from them by acts or favoritism or charity.
I had spoken to a particular team as to why they brought in a new player and they had a justified reason. It was due to the fact that since our league was postponed numerous time because of weather and holidays that some people couldn’t commit past our actual end date. The gook understood that and felt remorse for that team.
Now this is how I think the rule should be written. If you don’t play on your said team by Week 2 you cannot play. No adding new players after Week 2. People, you should know and have a team ready and figured out who’s on it honestly for Week 1. If you can’t be there by Week 2 then you shouldn’t commit to something that you don’t have time for.
So fellas let’s get our shit together and start acting like mature men.

One bad apple that literally tried to fight 4 Bulls players, a 50 year old woman, AND another older ref, shouldnt be a true reflection of C league. I hope this kid doesnt ref again. That was the most ridiculous thing ive been apart of. Maybe the games are more chippy down here because the talent is MUCH more equal. The games were all close.

And saying B and A are vets/mature/etc is nuts. Last year two top teams in B actually had a fight on the field. punches were thrown and everything. And no one was thrown out of that game lol.

The worst part of all of this is that the only person to hit someone, chest bump an official, take his shirt off to get ready to fight, threaten an old woman is payed by this league to officiate!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The officials on the field threw him out but he was allowed to stay right next to the field. Ridiculous!!!!!!!!!! No one else was removed from the game other than the "ONE BAD APPLE" he should have been escorted out of the stadium by the league rep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Surely after this incident he will no longer be able to officiate!!

Fact check please, I was present last year when both teams got in a fight during a game and it was not C OR D LEAGUE!

My facts are correct and I stand by them. Any single person who gets involved is part of the problem. Let that one guy look like a fool and immature, if you can't keep your mouth shut your no better than him. I saw we do away with divisions and have lower teams take on the A division and he their asses whipped maybe that will shut y'all up.

Ok so I have had my issues of loudmouth this season towards refs, one in particular, who simply does not know the rules, procedures or even proper etiquette for being a ref. I know I've embarrased myself a few times along with my team probably bc I'm vocal and passionate about this game. Hell I've been doing leagues and traveling tourneys since we started the Badbirds back in 97. I don't know the story of what happened playoff sunday but I'm crossing my fingers it was the dipshit ref I've dealt with all season and that he never comes back. Feel free to gimme the low down on who it was fellas. See ya'll on the field in a couple weeks!!
