Five years as a Relic and I have enjoyed each one for different reasons and wish everyone a safe and healthy off season. Life marches on whether we enjoy each others company or not - it really is our choice how we treat each other. I will do my best to be a better person next year - can't promise my hitting or fielding will improve though. Those are my two cents for today.

If people can't show respect towards others then they should find another league. We are grown men not cocky little teenagers.

WHAT has happened to our league? Time to weed out the trouble makers and get back to what we are all about.

not being involved nor having more than rudimentary info on this situation I cannot offer an opinion on the out come. However, all of us as adults, should strive to maintain a high standard of behavior ESPECIALLY to volunteer personnel. Walter- hope you may reconsider your decision to leave us, as your input helps to improve our league. who can replace you?

I also wish to issue this apology to Ms. Marie Bond. As a Relic, a gentleman and a man I am sorry that you were subjected to this conduct. I hope you continue to attend the games and conduct yourself with pride and dignity as you have in the past. My apologies.

A majority of the appeals committee viewed these actions as deserving the same punishment, shame on them. This action by the appeals committee means that anyone who has family or friends attending the games should know that the Relics will do nothing to protect them should some member decide to verbally or even possibly physically assault them. It means that the Relics condone these actions against members and their families. I refuse to sit by and let this situation go on without speaking my piece to the entire league.

Profound disappointment is an understatement. For both of these members of the Relics to be punished the same is beyond reasonable comprehension. One member of the Relics set out on a vendetta, calculated and intentional. He committed two CRIMES on this vendetta. He involved the significant other of another player. He violated 3 areas of the Relics code of conduct. The other member of the Relics responded verbally to what was done to him and his partner and at most violated 1 area of our code of conduct. ( continued )

Walter's posting prods me to inform all the Relics as to what has transpired. There was an ugly incident between Rico Petrello and Jonny Riches. The Board decided some disciplinary action was necessary. There was an appeal request. An Appeal Committee (AC) was selected. The AC heard and discussed the issues. They decided to reduce punishment such that both parties received the same punishment. Differences in opinion as to what should be the appropriate punishment has caused some Relics to suffer profound disappointment.

I now have no choice but to leave the Relics after the Christmas party. I want to thank everyone for allowing me to have been part of this once great organization. I hope that the organization can save itself and its dignity. This is the lowest point of the Relics organization. I wish everyone well with their season next year.
