    I agree, definitely good to get someone with experience on board to help with the sim. Trouble with 3 people wanting to sim and 2 games a week is that it's needlessly over complicating things, not sure if the role of backup-simmer is going to be right for someone who obviously has a fair bit of desire to help out as it'll be pretty limited i'd imagine.

    Not in any organisational capacity you won't.

    There's elections for that sort of role.

    I'd be alright, with Rodgie doing stuff, I mean come on, give everyone a fair go. Look at Gundry, when he started, his posts were made from absolute crap. Personally, I think he was worse then Rodgie. If he can improve, I think Rodgie should be given the chance as well.

    Im going to let everyone sort it out themselves of whatever they think is the best course of action. While they are doing that I will have a look at the sim etc and see what is required.

    If anyone needs help or advice let me know. Im familiar and experienced with the sim and have spent a fair bit of time discussing with Blewy the direction and plans for the league.

    Also as National and Swell captain, Id like an input.

    A new structure needs to be setup here imo. I'm thinking a board including all the captains and Mitchell and some clear definitions of who is in charge, perhaps an election of some sort.

    I couldnt agree more. I believe that was the idea last time but that CWFA members stopped making an input.

    For example my involvement grew as International captain. There was supposed to be a number of people selecting the National side but it ended up being just myself and Blewy as others didnt respond.

    If there is a board, there has to be a commitment.

    With the board, Gelman's idea combines well with Goughy's desire for commitment from its members. In theory if you select all the captains as board members, these are the guys who are going to have to be active in the sim as they're submitting teams twice a week and so commitment shouldn't be a problem for them. Also has the benefit that they represent all the teams between them and give an equal voice.

    Think i'll create a new thread for the sorting out of the structure tbh.

    Im more then happy to help out the guys that do deside to take over. I think one of the big problems that Blewy faced as Goughy mentioned was the lack of help from the other board members at times.

    Also i think there can be a role for 3 people, as there is more to do in running the sim then just simming matches. There is the whole organisation of the game, which also why you probably need a bigger board including captains (or others) to help out. The simming the matches is probably the easiest aspect of running the game, but requires the most reliability. The other little things are what make it hard to run, especially by yourself.

    On that topic, I agree with Gelman.

    Also, Smith : What does Rodgie have to do with World Cricket? You talking about the "outside of the bubble" concept, or something entirely different?
    I'd just like to add that in his role as Content Updater Rodgie is more than competent and AFAIK is doing more complex things than simming a game. Cut him some slack would you. Would you leave your job just because you don't like the boss?

    Actually, yeah I probably would, depending on what type of job it was.
