fvcking little league is a scam
« on: July 13, 2016, 11:58:49 pm »
So I'm sitting at the Point Loma little league fields watching my son play ball.  The team is named after the fvcking credit union who sponsors them.  The fvcking San Diego Crédit Union Padres.  Why can't they just be called the Padres and drop all this credit union bullshit advertising.  They're fvcking 12 year old kids, and they're already selling out. 

My son says that they have to call themselves the SDCC Padres because that's who pays for them to have a team.  WTF?  Why the hell did I write that $800 check then?  My name should be on the fvcking jersey.

Not only that, they fvcking require 20 hours a season of volunteer work.   I have to fvcking pay AND voluntold?  What the fvck do they do with the money from the damn credit union?

Kids.  Nickel and fvcking dimed for life.

My boss sponsors his nephew's league for $250 a year and the business name is on the uniform.

You're getting ripped off buddy.

Little league here is about $100. They charge about $20 for a field clean up day. Of you show and clean you get the money back. Our teams are just the MLB teams and not sponsored by anyone.

How much to charge, team names, and volunteer rules are not Little League rules. They are rules set up by your local board. Your board should be able to show the financial side and are obligated to show you. That is a little league rule. You are getting hosed but by your local board not Little League.

The annual fee was 500, which includes field usage, umpire fees, other shit like that.  But then they go to Tahoe for a tourney each year, which costs another 300.

Plus I have to volunteer to sell hot dogs to fat people.  And they don't even sell beer at the games.

that doesn't sound like little league. That sounds like club ball. Club ball is more expensive.

Good luck with that and just wait until lil Pam needs the $300 bat.

Okay, so technically you're right.  It's called Legion instead of Little League, but nevertheless, it's still a bunch of tweens playing stickball.

What does paying for uniforms have to do with corps or government.

I have no idea what they sponsored or what Pam paid for and neither do you.

I guess Pam should sign up for one is those government leagues and save her money. That's right they don't exist.
