To me it was all about perception. The rains came and within 15 minutes of the stop of the rain the entire tournament was cancelled. Never mind there was 3 hours of sunlight left in the day and all night. Perception to me was that they made a very rash decision. Had they waited at least until almost night fall and then called it I would have at least felt they tried. As it was it did not seem to me much effort was put into it by TD or the City. No one was getting out of their hotel agreements at that time in the evening anyway why make such a quick and rash judgment? Perception is everything and I think TD could have done a much better job at caring or at least pretending to care. Just my two cents worth.

You just answered your own question. No ref fees= more cash

Yeah if they don't refund any money, sure that's where it will come from but I also said if they do what they said they would do then where is it coming from?? Guess we will know in a few days/weeks if they live up to their word or not. You are assuming they won't is how I'm interpreting it.
Not trying to pick a fight, just trying to understand how they will make extra money.

00scrmon- you seem to be in the know with Lightning. Do you know when they will be contacting teams about the refund?

I'm not...just going off what I've been told from those I know at lightning and our manager (not with lightning). They have contact information on their website.

A whole days field use fees should is another source of savings.

Ref fees would be approx $35 per team per match. We better be getting back more than that.

I had asked that question earlier but no one responded. Does the city charge them by the day for the field use? I assumed that but got no confirmation.

You are correct, that is my assumption. I could be wrong. Only time will tell if they live up to their word.

OMG...get over yourselves already....Hopefully your team will get back $75 so you can divide that among the 15 players. You can almost go buy lunch.

So they cancelled. From the biggest complainers I still haven't heard what suggestion they have or what they would have done. Please throw it out there for us because I guarantee it wouldn't be possible. For every parent (who ruin youth soccer to begin with) who has a problem with the cancellation there would be as many or more that had issues with it being moved somewhere else or rescheduled for a weekday for example. Those are city owned fields and if the city shut them down then they shut them down....GET OVER IT.

Poker- How about you get a clue already.
The city did not shut down the fields. And obviously the fields were playable as there were games played there on Sunday. In the past I know Puma has also been played in Cedar Hill.
Was that not an option this year? Someone who knows (this excludes you poker)

Maybe Texas Lightning decided to keep everyones money to pay the refs they had for the friendly's they at Harold Patterson on Sunday.

It is now mid week and not a single word from TL on this,  they have been taking a bashing and nothing, not a word.  Their reputation has already taken a huge hit, the longer they stay silent the worse it will get.

It won't matter, TL tournaments will NOT take a hit. See the Hurst Turkey Shoots. The 2009 was a disaster and there were plenty of teams in 2010. 2010 was just as bad or worse and the 2011 & 2012 still drew lots of teams. Granted, Hurst changed their board after 2010 and worked hard to make up for those nightmares. I contend that even if they would have had the same crew running the 2011, it would have been well attended.

There are not enough teams with that good of a memory, or that are on these forums, to shut down a tournament.
