Looks like someone is off his meds.

 

Fast forward to the last 4 years, I have felt, and I am not alone, that the addition of sponsored shooters, and Teams is ruining the matches for a lot of people, including myself as a Match Director

 

Oh, and fuck you winners for wanting a prize.

Prize tables are bullshit

 

I want cash, and that's what the shotgun sports offer the winners: cold hard cash.

 

If you want to make money in the shooting sports, become a deathstalker in sporting clays

 

If you want to make big money in the shooting sports, become a deathstalker in trap

 

If you want to make REAL money in the shooting sports, become a deathstalker in pigeon shooting (the fight club of the shooting sports).

You can make big money being a shooter in any organization simply by being good enough to play major league ball and shoot in your spare time.

Sounds like two douches colliding.  Whiny bitchy post.  He's not wrong though--bunch o sponsered shooters wanting their swag. I have a prize table.  called a bank account.  Heh looky what i picked up--and i got first choice.

 

I go to matches to win--only swag I want is top of the results.

 

And beer.  sweet sweet cold beer.

 

Simple solution--don't like how match is run? don't enter.  Problem solved.

Each time you mention this, I imagine some Eyes Wide Shut shit, where the pillars of the community come together to shoot caged birds while wearing masks and robes.

Giving RO's first pick of the prize table does seem pretty lame.

That is some classic shit right there.

I always love it when ego takes over shooting.

It never wins yet it gains momentum at every match.

Match directors make choices. Sometimes the choices are hard. Sometimes they get it wrong.

Shooters vote on those choices with their wallets. That's the balance in the system.

The only thing that bothers me here is the anonymity of the letter of complaint. Put on your big boy pants and sign your complaint. Otherwise you are no better (and deserve no more credence) than the whiny bitches who make political "protest" by destroying property while wearing ski masks.

So how do they determine HOA-RO for first pick of the prize table?

 

RO's should be treated like employees, clearly define the job to be done (which days to work) and the compensation (match fee, hotel, per diem, etc.) 

 

Shooters should be treated as customers, what the match offers in terms of stages, payout/prizes in exchange for match fee.

 

However a match director wants to run their match and distribute prizes is up to them, but they should be up front about it.  Filling your match book/flyer with sponsor logos and talking up the dollar amount on the prize table, only to not really have that much in prizes because staff gets to cherry pick before any prizes are given out, is deceptive.

They should give out prizes in reverse order of finish.  Like how the worst team gets the first pick in the NFL draft.

He's referring to the writer of the email that set Frank off. Given Frank's reaction, it looks like writing it anonymously was not a bad idea, lest a bunch of Jersey Wearing Try Hards get banned from future matches run by Frank.

He is still the owner.  Some people think he sold it to Scout, which is incorrect.  He moved the forum to the Scout platform as a business decision and now moved out as Scout went bankrupt and got sold to CBS.
