The point is that the CSFTA works and we are currently enjoying a challenging winter league, The fact that one club, that is not prepared to participate in the winter league (I've heard because you didn't want to go to the IOW?? I've been there and it's not that bad) is using the forum to air their own petty quibbles on the back of a 'it's not legal' / we're not being listened to [etc] thread rather than going through the correct channels and that is childish.

But they all had plenty of time to complain though, oh yes, plenty of time to do that.
