.... To spread the benefit around more, with effect from the game tomorrow (31 Aug 2019), I will split the $2 credit into $1 credits for the first two from each team to do a report. Priority for the following week's game will only be for the first from each team to provide a report, but I will consider extending it in the future to the second player from each team to do so. I would rather the rush be to provide reports for games (which benefits everyone, and the system) rather than to be the first to put one's name down for the following week's game (which only benefits the player concerned, at the expense of the system).
As I add every player to the WhatsApp group chat, the identity of a player can be verified from the list of participants in the group info (either the mobile number of the player or his profile photo). Or just ask me! If there is any doubt, selectors should verify the identities of players. Players wrongfully assuming the identity of other players is sometimes the reason for mistaken views about the balance of the teams. Selectors should avoid making similar mistakes.
In any event, this mistake should have been recognised when the players turned up at the pitch. Such a serious or obvious mistake should have been rectified immediately, by adjusting line ups, instead of waiting until the score was 1-4.
Going forward, if a player is unable to change teams either before or during a game because he does not have the other colour, and this is referred to in the report thread and verified by his captain, I will impose a $1 penalty on that player. If selectors, having realised they made a serious or obvious mistake in the identify of one or more players, do not rectify the mistake before the game starts, I may withhold the $1 credit for being selectors, and they may lose their priority for the following week's game.
No one said that line up was not balanced . Reds actually started of well and came close in scoring first . Reds had 1-2 players off form on that day . We had balanced team before with scorelines 6-2 or 7-2 .
Need to chill Rajiv , dont have to be so harsh .
We all enjoyed the game . I volunteered to swap .
As for attacking I would say reds attacked more then the whites . Whites just took their chances well .
