gwhilikerz said:I don't want to stir the pot too much, but there is something I don't understand. From what I read in JD's post the UCBK was in negotiations about this compromise then withdrew? Then a compromise was reached between UBK, KBA, and KDFWR without UCBK being a party to the compromise.
I suppose the questions I have are: Why wasn't the UCBK involved in the final deal? Was this a failure on the part of UCBK leadership? Or did UCBK feel that nothing could be done as long as they were at the table? Or did we just witness KY politics at it's best?
Please don't misunderstand me. I am happy to get some sort of compromise and get this behind us. But, at the same time, I feel we are not being told something.
You answered your own question. UCBK got left out because of politics, not anything that was done wrong by the leaders. They were misled as much as anyone. They had tried to work a true compromise with the UBK and the KBA during trhe week before and were basicly lied to by both. What now is being billed as a compromise is actually a submission. KYDFWR bowed out because of political pressure, not so much from SB 211 but from the other bills still pending with time running out. Again, the crossbow user was used as a pawn in the game of chess.
So, for the sake of about 21 days or so, this issue is a long way from being dead. WE (UCBK) never expected the expansion to include all of the season, but we also don't expect to be left out of the best part of the season. UBK is saying now that there will be no revision for at least 5 years. That's not true. You are very correct that only part of the story has been told. I urge you to find out the rest of it.
