Why is it the guys who didn't get picked for dodgeball, become sailors, then try to game the system like a fucking bankster or a fund manager?

Nothing New -- read up on Dennis Conner and his socal reputation with the PHRF games.


Maybe DC got his AC multiple ratings certs. idea from his Low Cal buddies.

Now we are getting down to the heart of the matter.  I don't speak for the club, but from what I understand, SSC decided to give ratings to boats who could not obtain, for whatever reason, an SFYRA PHRF cert.  In other words - to be more inclusive.  A Stockton Sailing Club handicap rating is an ARBRITARY number - there is no board, no system, no rules, and no friggin appeals.  Obviously it can be changed on a whim, whenever.  And IMHO, another reason one might assign arbitrary ratings in lieu of a board assigned number derived from a rating system would be to discourage some PHRF wanker from trying to work the system with multiple configurations and multiple ratings.  Homey don't play that game.
 
But once again, no one really gives a shit (unless you are some PHRF wanker) because we are talking about a placing on PAPER.  If Tempesta and his posse want to call that fuckery, then so be it.  But to pick on a small town sailing club, call the volunteers names, is well, being an internet bully.
 
Stop hatin' on the playa Scott, hate the game.

 
 
I have never seen any other industry where the people who make money off said industry piss all over their source of income. I've raced too many owner driver OD events where a "Owner" major sail maker fouls their customers at the start and around the course then gets the protest thrown on a pussy chicken shit game the system move vs saying yes "I fucked up and doing the right thing and stepping out" - Same goes for these attacks on small clubs run by volunteers that struggle to keep sailing alive in their areas only to have a "Industry news site like say Sailing Anarchy" bash them when its the people and the clubs like Fresno YC and Stockton YC that make up the bulk of the people who enable people like Clean to make a living running an industry news site.
 
I've never seen a smart business person piss all over their primary customer base like I have in the Sailing Industry.

Mother, who has raised her son so well
He's thirty-four and drinking in a honky tonk
Just kicking hippies asses and raising hell"

By shit talking the hippies, you're certainly accomplishing your goal: Making sure the Ditch becomes a truly local affair.
