The Final Countdown Begins

Added Time


With two thrilling weeks of quarter and semi finals in the record books the championship game has been set. The resurgent Blue Mooners will face off against the very resurgent Pink Panthers in what promises to be a bone crunching goal fest. As always seems to be the case, the knockout stages have not been without their controversy. Judging by the anonymously sent gift basket of Iowan eggs I received yesterday I have found another way to make myself unpopular. In addition to scheduling games in April and reffing, I now know not to allocate substitutes. Although for the final week I am flying my cousin Wayne in from the UK to guest for the Blue Mooners.


Seriously, on the topic of sub players – this is a lose-lose situation for the assignor. Not only can you not please all the people all of the time you are guaranteed to please nobody none of the time. Despite the flack I have taken on the topic I stand by my decisions and if anyone is interested I believe I can present a strong defense – well, at least one better than my goal tending. It should also be said that all is not what it appears to be, there are many factors that make what appear to be simple decisions a wee bit more complicated.


Now it is a case of what is done is done, there is no use in crying over the spilt milk that has now flowed under the proverbial bridge. Next season will see some changes in how the substitutes are managed and how the play offs are set up. These changes will help minimize the issues that have emerged (again). I may even act unilaterally. It is definitely time for some new approaches and I regret not imposing some proposed changes before the season began. Oh well, hindsight is 20-20.


Save some goals, but save this date – September 12th - End of Season Party

The winner of the Dunning Cup may not be determined yet, but I'm sure the ultimate victor’s will remind you who won it at the Post Season Bash.  Enjoy some jovial bantering about this season’s high and lowlights at the RSCSL end-season party, this year generously hosted by the Wright Stuff’s Dean Kasparian.

Besides great friends, there will be beer (kegs from our sponsor Buckbean and Great Basin), food, swimming, and games for the entire family including the best beer pong table in all of Nevada .

Please bring a dish to share.  A BBQ will be available to grill on if needed.

When - Sunday September 12th from 2 pm till 7 pm

Where - Dean Kasparian’s house: 3465 Kinney Ln , Reno , NV 89511
