I'd like to see the forums kept open, as there is a lot of good information here, and it does give us a place to "meet" and try to work through all the issues that brought this site into being initially.

But it may well be the time to set some guidelines and boundaries, and exercise a little more control and moderation to keep thinks in line and on topic.


Good point. We could do this the traditional way, or we could do it a bit differently. Lets do it a bit differently :) .
MKs all over the world know the beautiful game, "Soccer" and we grew up with parables, lessons and analgies, so lets combine the two. I'll write a few "rules of the game" and then someone else can edit, add, subtract, clap on the sidelines or observe quietly". Then the next person can do the same, until we all have had a say and decide to play basketball.

1. Playing the ball (the issue) is fine, tackling another player who doesn't have the ball is not.

2. No chainsaws allowed!

3. It is not polite to call the opposition rude names and certainly not members of the same team.

3a. If the opposition commits a foul, by all means point it out, explain why it is a foul and offer a suggestion how long you think the sin bin should be used. Do not break rule 3) in the process.

4. You can play in any position you like, just remember to share the ball.

5. Some of your team mates have played their warm up games in very different circumstances, a bit of understanding will go down very well.

6. Invite other MKs to play, it is good manners and they might even bring new skills to the game.

7. Sometimes an opposition player might want to explain their version of the rules, this is fine, just use common sense and keep an eye on the situation.

8. Sometimes the game gets serious, it is no dishonour to pop into the bar for a bit of refreshment, burning out is not recommended.

8a. The bar also serves orange juices and a lovely arrangement of drinks from all over the world, feel free to sample them.

9. If you need to use the Sin Bin, be warned it is pretty full at times.

10. Don't abuse the ref. or linespersons.

Right next persons turn ;)

4a) Try not to play the same position as another player.

5a) Each player has unique skills. Use them to the greatest advantage of the team.

11) Keep your eye on the goal and on the ball.

Pele and David Bechham have been consulted on the contentious "Offside Rule", I hope to hear back in the next few days. The Summary so far:

1. Playing the ball (the issue) is fine, tackling another player who doesn't have the ball is not.

2. No chainsaws allowed!

3. It is not polite to call the opposition rude names and certainly not members of the same team.

3a. If the opposition commits a foul, by all means point it out, explain why it is a foul and offer a suggestion how long you think the sin bin should be used. Do not break rule 3) in the process.

3b. Fouls will be dealt with.

4. You can play in any position you like, just remember to share the ball.

4a. Try not to play the same position as another player.

5. Some of your team mates have played their warm up games in very different circumstances, a bit of understanding will go down very well.

Offside rule does apply. Don’t hang out near the goal, ahead of the team and the ball.

13. No comments from the Peanut Gallery.

14. Goals may be applauded.

15. Players wishing to play for both sides at the same time, are welcome to do so, however it is recommended they have a large flag in their right hand at all times and they are aware that members of either side may be a little suspicious of their loyalties.

16. The offside rule does apply, so any eager Eagles or tense Tribers who think they are past the defenses of the other team – beware; if you get the ball in that position, you will gift it to the other team as a free kick because you are offside. (The “attacker” who is so far ahead and ready to “stick it” to the other team, (but without the ball), is not really with the team and will be caught offside).


Bemused wishes to acknowledge the kind effort of Aghast who contacted Pele for rule Number 16

Ummmm
Please define Peanut Gallery.
Where is it?
Who is in it?
What about peanut allergies? It is not mandatory, is it?
And what about cheering? Not just applauding a goal.
Some of us are a little more, shall we say, verbally outgoing.
And do not do well sitting silently.
Can we cheer as we play?
What kind of outfits do we wear for this dual role?
:D :D
Just had to know.

17. No dangerous play, i.e. actions which will cause harm to the players or the game. This could include things like accusing an opponent of a flagrant foul without a personal supporting story.
