Cue Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares To You”

In an email dated April 25, 2017, SRRBBL Commissioner Anton Perkins stated the following:

“This Board has put in well over 30 hours a week during the year to make sure the league’s objectives are met.”

Multiple times, in April and May of 2017, the SRRBBL Community, via attending the SRRBBL Board Meeting and sending large group emails to the SRRBBL Board with 80+ SRRBBL Community Members on copy, offered many new ideas that would help alleviate all the workload, mainly holding fair elections and adding more SRRBBL Board positions.

At the SRRBBL Board Meeting, SRRBBL Board Member John Salamone dared the SRRBBL Community Members, in attendance, to vote him out, claiming, “I have heard every stupid suggestion parents and coaches had to offer.”   When the opportunity arrived to “vote out John Salamone”, the SRRBBL Board, all three of them, cancelled the elections due to SRRBBL Community pressure of a unfair election, then went silent, never held another election and then changed the SRRBBL By-Laws to allow them to vote themselves back in as SRRBBL Board Members, and did just that.

Regarding the emails that were sent, the SRRBBL Board never responded.  No surprise there.

In that same email on April 25, 2017, SRRBBL Commissioner Perkins also stated:

“The Board of Directors will continue to display this forward direction as it seeks to make SRRBBL the best League in the County.” 

Forward direction?  The only direction the league is heading is into continued complete and utter disarray.  Best league in the County?  Compared to what “other leagues”?  What work is being done to make SRRBBL the best league in the County?

At this point we are going to end this blog post, and allow you to, at your own leisure, continue to scroll down, view for yourself and form your own opinions about what direction SRRBBL is heading in and how they compare to other leagues in the County.
