Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Sounds like a good way to make sure the game is intense.
Let's all bring 100 francs to pay the medical bills of the injured players.

Nineteen.
19.
Nuh nuh nuh nuh nineteen.

It's weird that the 'max 15 players' text has vanished from the event info.
But there's been a 15 player limit since the start of the year - it works well and everyone gets a decent game.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

What should be done now? Will we make a 5 men team of four or 2 team of 10 or search a big playground. I am scared we might end up like being in a wrestle-mania if we play 10-10

No. More than 15 is a waste of time.

What should happen now is that the people who signed up after you (the 15th person to sign up) should sign off so as not to ruin the game.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Pit?! Seriously?!

Adding another player isn't helpful!

Bring him next week.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Could those who signed up after the 15-person limit was reached please switch to maybe? Be considerate.

Beardsy, if you're genuinely not coming (as opposed to signing off in reaction to those who clearly don't understand a simple rule), let us know so we can try and sort out another ball.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

As much as I love the image of 17 people turning up to play football, but no-one has a ball, and everyone has to spend two hours thinking 'oh, maybe we've learned a valuable lesson about how the modern culture of entitlement will only lead to chaos and ruin...'

As attractive as that is, Pamir was on Tourist Day yesterday and I told him that if the numbers didn't go down I wouldn't be going. I checked he has a ball, and he does, but no pump.

So there will be a game, of sorts.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

i dont like being rude but here is the thing... if you didint make it into the original 15 ... with all the pain in our hearts... you will not play... that simple. I know you really want to play, but there are rules in order to make a fun experience with a decent amount of people

beardsy: you shouldnt rsvp no as way to teach them a leason.. that will teach nothing... is better in my opinion .. if they show up to tell them that we are allready full and they should have read the event rules and all the post asking them to change their status.

but that is just me

You're right, but I don't have the energy to do that today.

What is wrong with 4 teams of 5? It sounded like we had enough for a round robin? So what is going on today?
