    Long Ban

    He's lucky he hasn't lost everything in a defamation suit. He's too stupid to appreciate how lucky he is and how easy he's actually gotten off. Let's see if he'd say he'd like his children to have read the filth he wrote on his bb.

    not really - only a half dozen or so tournaments.

    Don't get me wrong - one or two of those may be treasured parts of usual playing schedule. But just think that a one-month ban is really a one weekend ban, except for Grades; COS & State champ.

    not pleasant - I would hope not to transgress but I keep my head low and hopefully cause mild short-term aggravation - I gather from reading that issues have been building awhile and some people have been entertaining themselves by watching flame wars - not so much me as I pop in hear for info but several pages to wade thru.

    All the best anyhow

    An loyal fan had these questions:

    Who was the proposer of the motion to ban?
    Who was the seconder of the motion to ban.
    What was the wrding of the motion?

    Bill?

    hi AR

    I presume from your BLOG that you have been in contact with Matt.

    Did he reveal the date of the offence? I have a PM from another poster that I would like to compare with. (Matt, if you are still dialling in...feel free to reveal the date if you wish).

    Hey Bill...can I do a one-on-one interview with you. I publish on my blog. See Kerry Stead example for this type of thing.

    I do the same for Matt too.

    You know, I should tell, I have world wide readership already. Just check out my site meter.

    Bill,

    The first question I want to ask is: what were the precise reasons for the banning? The second question I want to ask you Bill is: do you have a personal vendetta against Mr Sweeney? And finally, other than Mr Sweeney taking legal action, does the NSWCA have an independent appeals process to which the matter can be referred?

    THanks Bill. I actually have more questions. But let's start with those. I want to publish some exclusives and then maybe we can take it up in the ACF Bulletins.

    As Bill would say, if you wanted to know such things you should have stayed on the council - isn't that right Bill?

    That information is not for the general public. If NSWCA members wish to know the answer to that they can contact the Secretary to view the minutes.
    I will however point out that I vacated the chair whilst the matter was discussed and I abstained from voting.

    Over in another thread I told you that the action was instigated by another member yet you made it clear you did not believe me.
    As such I have no intention of wasting my time discussing it with the likes of you.

    It was clear in the letter he was sent.

    I dont believe his foul language is acceptable but I did not instigate the action against him. It was instigated by another council member.

    No. His avenues for appeal are spelt out in the NSWCA Constitution.
    I notice however you apparently had no issue with the processes with regards the Council's suspension of Ilic.

    I should point out that as per the constitution Matt was given the opportunity to respond in writing to the Council or he or a representative authorised by him in writing could attend the July 28th Council meeting. He to do neither.

    Well if Matt did not care enough about it all to go and put his case, why should anyone else care?
