FISODAS Season 32 - Announcement

Post by forestfan » 07 Jan 2019, 19:41

Just to give some advance notice to everyone – I’m planning on making this coming season my last one at the helm of FISODAS.

The game has thrived for over 13 years through regular changes of organiser, and I very much hope that can continue to be the case. This will be my seventh season of running it, and looking back through the history of it, only Jester in his first spell has done more than that consecutively.

As I’m sure everyone appreciates, it is a real commitment to run a game like this, even though I’ve managed to automate certain elements better as I’ve gone on, and will continue to do so with a view to handing it over. The pricing and scoring has always been a single person job, though I must thank Rob for his efforts with the technological element of it – there’s no way I would have agreed to take it on with manual entries, as was the case in the early years!

I’ve generally enjoyed running it, other than the occasional difficult situation that has arisen but you can’t avoid that totally. The first law of FISO side games, or indeed any competition you run, is that the one thing you haven’t covered off in the rules will happen – I’m certainly glad I don’t have the responsibility of running a game with cash prizes! But enthusiasm does tend to wane a bit after a while and my passion for Premier League football itself has dipped slightly over the past couple of years, I’m finding I’d rather immerse myself in an epic TV box set than watch a middle of the road Monday night game.

So by giving this notice I’m hoping someone will come forward to take it on before August/September. It could even be two people with different roles, which would certainly make it easier in terms of holidays etc. compared to relying on one person. If not, maybe it will take a break for a while but I really hope this isn’t the last of FISODAS – and I would certainly like to take part as a player again myself some day!

Player lists will be up in the near future for Week 1, season starts this weekend.

Couldn't have put it better Jester.
Enjoyed every season since young Digsby introduced me to FISODAS and only possible by the efforts of the various organisers over the years.
Thank you all and here's hoping that we get a volunteer to takeover. Difficult shoes to fill but I'm sure that whoever it is they will get every assistance.

Echo all the comments above. Running of this game in particular looks very time intensive so your efforts are appreciated FF 8-)
Fingers crossed someone steps up to continue the running of this great little game.

A great big thanks to FF for captaining the good ship Fisodas over the years, I know we all tried to make it easier to run but hats off, the Widget has been a tremendous addition! Enjoy your final season, then come join Jester and I on the retirement deck :lol:


To anyone considering taking over, it's not as scary as it looks and there will be tremendous support available as I'm sure we have all found running this.

Now that the Premier League has finished for another year, I was wondering if there had been any volunteers to run FISODAS next season yet?
