NACB Convention.

(Oldest Posts First)

Can anyone tell me why the sudden interest from Boston people running for positions on the County Board? Its clear they want no part of the games within the NACB proven by the fact that 10 of the Boston teams failed to travel to the Labor Day Weekend Play-offs in Chicago. Four of the people running weren't at the play-offs.

I thought $2.500 fines and 48 week suspensions was the appropriate action according to the NACB Bye-Laws. Instead the people that have shown total disdain for the Nacb, its clubs and its rules except for the playoffs in 2008 and 2009 when Boston was the host now want to run the whole show. I think all of Boston should stay out of Washington this weekend. You're all wasting your time because the clubs in America know the adverse effect your non-participation at the play-offs had on the whole weekend. The days of Boston holding the NACB to ransom are over.
