Rumors??? Whatís true?
« on: November 13, 2020, 09:42:55 am »
Ok- so whatís the real story?  I heard it wasnít just 1 player w/ only 1 missed play in our grade.... 

I also heard that several LC teams had kids playing that werenít even registered thru sportabase (playing for free) in several grades. 

Lastly, there were some rumors flying around that some kids didnít even attend LC.   Now, to be fair, this individual didnít know that to be true or not. 

Also heard initially INFC was gonna kick out all LC teams w/ unregistered kids.  But then decided to fine each said team $500 in violation & not let any team play with any kid not registered.  Kinda a bad situation to not let any of the teams play in the finals when the finals are at LC.

I donít know why these rumors are being kept secret.  Letís bring it out & see what ones are true/ false.

The kids in question, which isnít as many as the ďrumorsĒ are suggesting have all been attending Lincoln.  Some of them since Pre-k. Their parents forgot to fill out their sportabase paperwork.  But they were on an official roster since the beginning of the year.  And they do go to school there. .  I am friends with one of the families their kid now has to sit out Saturday.  So I know the whole story.  It was one piece of paperwork not some grand scheme.  Now you got kids that cannot play for the something that has never been a ďBIGĒ issue until now.  You all better check  your sportabase you know, in case life got in the way and you just forgot another piece of paperwork to fill out.  They had 3 kids in the 5th grade that forgot to register.  I donít know about the rest.  Their parents feel awful.  It just slipped their minds. The athletic director for their club messed up and didnít double check.  Their family told me he is new to the school.   Thatís all I know about the other teams. I have no idea about what went on with 6th grade.  Just trying to be a reasonable mind in a bunch of nonsense.

My only question is those are illegal players right or wrong??? If they are illegal than they should have to forfeit every game. Just like they have done the other teams!!!! But here comes the good ole boy system where they say I donít think they did it on purpose. How does certain organizations get held to higher standards than other clubs. Lincoln Christian is recruiting and everyone knows it but itís okay for them and they will get away with this. Whatís a fine gonna do???

Their 6th grade team cannot play man.  You gonna punish young kids for some their parents forgot to do.  Are you kidding?  Just bc you have some issue with a school. Illegal?  They forgot to fill out one pice of paper.  Not a whole team a couple of kids.  They attend the school. Have you ever forgot to fill something out?  And I bet if you went in and checked sportabase across the board they would have several missing documents.  But right now they donít care about that.  They are just checking two days before some kids supposed to play.

They are a private school so they can recruit.  I know some of the 6th grade coaches and players.  I don't think they purposely did this intentionally.  They've owned up to their mistake.  It  sucks for those kids, but now it is what it is. LC is out and Norman is in.

Iím just on here to be honest.  It was a mistake not some scandal. Just put yourself In the kids place.  Idc about what happened with the 6th grade.  Iím just talking about the kids that were blindsided they parents are good people man. Donít act like some paper work is the biggest problem the INFC has ever let go.  From the looks of what I have read in the past few hours a lot stuff the INFC overlooks.  So we gonna get chippy over paperwork.  Thatís ridiculous and you know it.

Ummm... Sorry not sorry. 

Section 12
Players Rules and Participation
Article 1: All participants of the INFC must be registered on the Sportabase
registration system before being allowed to participate in practices or games.
Those in violation are considered illegal participants and will immediately be
removed and penalties assessed to the organization and team.


LC has ONE team per grade so checking rosters against sportabase is really easy.  I feel bad for the kids, and I feel bad for the parents for forgetting to sign their kids up..  If yall wanna be angry or blame someone its on the club directors/officers for not double checking which I might add is really really easy to do since LC only has 1 team per grade.

Donít you have to pay & actually sign up thru sportabase?   So how can they be on a ďofficial rosterĒ if they werenít put into sportabase?  Iím not sure- thatís why Iím asking.  Also, I heard it was ďmultiple kids on several rostersĒ.  Hope that isnít so.  Iíd hate to have to explain that to my kid.  Our rosters all came off of sportabase.  And the coaches would look at it & see who has & has not, etc.

Recruiting ......Donít players need to be released from previous club?  Would registering a kid in sportabase that has not been released from another club have raised a red flag?

Now I'm not sure on the whole releasing the players from their previous school.  I don't think would be a sportabase thing though.

Wait, you have "no idea" about what went on with the 6th grade team but came here to tell us how the 5th grade team has 3 kids whose parents "forgot" to register them? And that the club director or coach NEVER once checked or noticed? How many years have these players played in the INFC? And how many years have these coaches coached in the INFC?

Also, how many of the non registered players were on the team before the first game? Were any players added after game 1? I don't know why I'm asking you honestly. You came to the 6th grade forum to talk about 5th grade. Sounds like the entire LC organization is doing some shady stuff. One team, one player... Ok. But, when it comes to 3 teams with MULTIPLE players.... COME ON BRUH!!!!

Rules are rules. Play by them or don't and fear the consequences. That simple. Makes me wonder if their INBC championship should have an asterisk 🤔 LOL JK.  I'm with Mav, sorry not sorry. GET UR PAPERWORK DONE! No excuses! Good luck Twolves and Glenpool!! Should be an outstanding championship game of two heavyweights.

Just telling you what ďIĒ heard. Everyone knows the 6th grade forum is popping that is why I checked it out. SMH. You get mad like I have some skin in the game.  You donít want to hear anything anyways.  Good luck to the teams that are playing.

In this case... If a player was playing for "Club X" last year and they decide to attend "Y Private School" this year and play football they would not need a release because the INFC hierarchy is School then where you live.  Player would need a release if they attended Y Private school and choose to play for "Club X" whose district they reside.

This is only the case with private schools as I understand it.  If this BA to Bixby or Jenks to Sand Springs a waiver would have to be obtained.

This whole process is done through INFC and not sportabase.

Mad? Who's mad? You came in and offered information like you HAVE skin in the game. Are you going to answer any of the questions I asked in regards to your post?
