I told myself I'll give it one more year. If the BS keeps up I'll stick to organized pickup and shinny. Like I told the rink general manager in an email, I don't come to the rink for that garbage. This is supposed to be fun.
I don't blame you for sticking up for yourself if others are coming after you and purposly trying to injure you. If you're league won't take action and throw the guy out, then you gotta do something to put an end to it. It's a shame you may have to quit the league because of **** like that.
I feel pretty fortunate to play in what seems to be a fairly tame beer league, at least after reading some of the stories here my league seems fairly easy going haha
