View Full Version : Pro Players Association
09-06-2005, 08:44 AM
I'm just fishing on this idea but, with all of the issues we have with pro inline.. why not form one players association? It wouldn't require everyone to play in the same league or anything but, it would definitely give the players a voice and a lot of weight in league affairs. We have so much trouble with our pro leagues that we almost end up choosing the lesser of two evils when deciding where to play. Things such as the mlrh website would quickly be fixed if it meant losing your players until it is fixed and updated regularly. Just a thought, let me know what you guys think.
ps- it also wouldnt hurt to have for other purposes like locating fellow pro players for tournaments etc.

If you are interested, want to be involved, or would support this, please let me know by responding or emailing me. If I get enough interest, I will pursue it immediately. Thanks Again,

to add another note to simple things like the MLRH site, we could even go as far as making the players association site the home people turn to for league results etc. Surely we could get the cooperation of all pro team captains and players in regards to reporting stats and scores in a timely matter.

The players assoc. money is what the leagues use for the website startup and insurance payments. I think that a check league's insurance would be more than a non-check league's insurance so having just 1 association may not work unless payments are structured differently and all players stay to one league or the other. And who would hold this money? Lot's of questions and I have very few answers.

I think its safe to say basically everyone involved with the "pro" leagues would be interested in anything that changes things for the better.

I personally don't think an impressive website is all that important. JMO

I think a professional, accurate, informative, and up to date website is very important. As a fan, I would thoroughly enjoy to be able to log on to the site soon after the completion of a game to find out the results. I would also be interested in checking the stats page to see who's hot and who's not. I could also check to see how some of the guys that I play against during the week are doing while playing at such a high level in the pros (assuming that Boston enters a team this season). And most importantly, it would allow me to see what team might be visiting the area for an upcoming game, possibly prompting me to take in a "must see" game or watching a "must see" player. But I do understand Roger that , as a player, you're primary concern would be a well run league above anything else. Just don't forget the fans. And the best way to keep the fans involved is an informative website.

I agree. Also, another way to create or keep interest in the league would be to put games on the site for fans to watch.

I stand corrected yet again Rup. You make a very valuable point. And yes, Boston will be back in this upcoming MLRH season. Although I had a great time in England with the guys from NY who went, I think I would like to try and win the trip to Prague with the Storm and play with my "homies" overseas.

Not if you want "gate" money.

Then in a few years, the players could go on strike.
