I'm never for airing our laundry in public like was done here. Facebook is viewed by everyone, and this doesn't concern everyone and can be misconstrued by guests. A fair exchange to get to the truth and then a public announcement. I might be in the minority on that but I don't see an error as a replacement for EVIL. As in the edited context.
Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it!
You CAN'T be serious. WP didn't "fess up" until they were "smacked". Would you prefer that we sweep this quietly under the rug? Sometimes the dirty laundry isn't cleaned until an outside source views its uncleanliness. These guys did almost exactly the right thing by airing it out. I would hope that I would have the cajones to do the same. And I can tell you for sure that my future ability to work would have NO BEARING on my decision to do so. Only a coward would fall back on that and these gus did not. The mistake has now been acknowledged and they can now implement steps to avoid a repeat.
Well, Mr. Robinson could have been a little more diplomatic about it when using a public forum such as Facebook. His two references to "Bristol officials" with quotation marks around them was a little insulting. And then he went on to specifically call out the regional UIC and two assistants? That, IMHO, was totally uncalled for. He could have easily made his point by just referring to them as tournament staff.

Our laundry? This was LL Bristol laundry. They messed up, WP fessed up, and likely due to the posts of the crew involved, it will now be reckoned with. (BTW- I am from the East Region and have no cross to bear against them).
Yes facebook is viewed by many (not everyone, but many) but who on facebook would give a rats behind EXCEPT anyone involved in youth baseball? Maybe the umps should just shut up and be viewed by the masses as the perpertrators of the error, rather than true ownership being assessed?

So Bristol messed up and then should be soft served in the explanation? Cheez louise, I expect (I hope) that when I screw up, someone who is in the know, will bring it up, chastise me, whatever, so that I get it right next time. I make a mistake, I own the mistake, pure and simple. It's not as if Mr. Robinson and the Bristol officials are on each others distribution lists or call each other to discuss issues is it? So, here it is on facebook instead. Bravo, fix it and move on.....................
