Should we be surprised?
Lorenzo, whatever happened, thank you for having tried to work for FISTF. We all know that in the actual circumstances, it's almost impossible to do so.

My friend, it is always the same story of appalling childishness. Because of a petty misunderstanding Drazinakis threw me out of the rules commission and forced me to resign. He dumped the partnership with the Italian sport dept., all my efforts to gather support on the Italian forum, the assistance of a primary producer that was going to manifacture our new measure tools, and of course my work and commitment (overwhelming his own five times in terms of quantity and twice in quality) for a pique.

Horta, however unstable, has excellent intentions and always dealt fairly with me. He had finally found somebody whose working output matched his own. However, he is a weak leader devoid of strategic vision (his strategy consists in obeying surveys and checking quorums – he’s the ultimate general secretary). Drazinakis supports him emotionally, never contradicts him even in his fixations (like the war against WASPA), and Luis naturally sided with him.

The board was in full swing, we had lots of projects ready to be launched, Italian players spontaneously emailed me their approval… and this fussy mediocrity wastes it all because he felt I was intruding upon his faulty project of integrating the book of cases in the rulesbook (which is going to become a kind of bible accessible only to rules wizards). He didn’t even attempt to discuss the situation. Once his babyish anger roused, pettiest revanche outweighed any tought of FISTF advancement.

As far as WASPA is concerned, after a while I stopped talking against their projected war of the buttons v3.0. Its pointless. To fight WASPA, FISTF should build a promotional circuit of its own. To this end there is need of ideas, willingness to undertake radical choices and lots of time and commitment. Horta has time. Everything else is wanting. WASPA is safe, even in the unlikely case that the board (and even FISTF) survives the congress.

Yes, I don't think WASPA should have any reason to worry.

If FISTF created their own circuit of promotional events, it would totally contradict the spirit of FISTF because FISTF is an association of national associations and FISTF would therefore replace the job of the national bodies, which is not good. WASPA can do it because many nations have no "national association" (like Australia, Cyprus, Sweden, Chile) or because they are working with clubs (for instance in Italy, Spain, Belgium) who are not really interested in the activities of the national associations. WASPA also helps nations with low activity and with poor ways to take part in the FISTF circus (Canada, the US, Singapore,...) so at the end there is enough space for both FISTF and WASPA but FISTF should concentrate on their real priorities!

Lorenzo, sorry to hear that. I honestly thought that with a person like you, there was some chance of making FISTF a little better. But I have known all the time the weakness of Luís and also his strong points. Unfortunately people don't always do what they are best at.

Lorenzo wrote:To this end there is need of ideas, willingness to undertake radical choices
This has been clear since I got interested in FISTF. But as the people with power are too conservative, or thick, to understand this, it would not only take the ideas, but also the psychological skills and logical explaining skills to get these to happen.

What really makes me think FISTF has maybe missed the last train is what you wrote about the italians. I have always known that the only way to make FISTF work is to involve the italians and get them behind compromises with respect to their status as a country. Now you were doing this successfully and the carpet is pulled under your feet.

Lunacy.

But funny, real life tragicomedy, that is FISTF. I'm having some snacks and a scottish whisky and enjoying myself in disbelief following this piece from the stands.

The real problem, my dear Vesa, is that the tablesoccer community is a world of Sixpack Joes and Soccer Pauls. Those who are interested in holding an office regard it as their own hunting ground rather than a service to the community, the average player is little better than a yelling fan in a booing crowd, and the few considerate people amid this rabble have given up the attempt at improving things, and rightly strive to have fun so long as the bandwagon keeps rolling.
