Answers to the questions asked in the 5th Futsal Rant…
Futsal Rant has sent in a reply to Ronalso’s recent comments on the Express Edition (available here).
“Where was all the juicy gossip you promised? Just plenty of ranting..”
We are currently trying to find a way to convey news and information without compromising / revealing sources and it has been difficult but more on the way shortly. Certain projects are being worked on and fine tuned with a bit more prep then this Express edition.
Plenty of ranting is pretty self explanatory really? Its about discussing issues that wouldn’t neccessarily get an article but worth discussing. Will you be at nationals, wont you want to see a cracking opening game like you would’ve the previous 33 editions?
“Where is the information on the F League?”
From what we know the F-League will be played over 5 weekends, 2 in NSW, 2 in ACT and 1 in VIC.
Issues are courts, dates, times, amount of games (reliant on amount of participating clubs) and Referees for VIC obviously. Looking at the logistics of flying down NSW refs for the day. Finding a suitable international court is always an issue.
“Any news on FFA involvement?”
They will take a more active role in the promotion side of things. We are guessing they are going to do a little more then nothing.
Who knows where and when they will help but they have shown a bit more interest.
“What is the structure of the comp?”
A bit pricer to enter with entry fees going towards final prize money which should help entering clubs afford heading to the AFC champs if they win the F-League. This might price out the smaller clubs like Paramatta & St Albans. However from what we know Maccabi, Dural, Quake, Sutherland, Sydney City, Boomerangs, Inner City, Vic Vipers & Adelaide Fusion could afford and be involved.
“Any teams from Queensland and South Australia, or is NSW and Victoria going to play each other again. If thats the case we might as well meet in Canberra and Albury/Wodonga and play each other there.”
Every league starts somewhere, its not the organizers fault if other states can’t get their act together. If you have a club ronalso all you can do is your part. Unless you want to join the f-league organizing committee…
