Aunt Sally should be a fun night out. We all want to win but it should not be at the expense of fair play and rapport between the teams. However what we have found this season from the beginning is some nastiness and intimidating behaviour creeping in. This has ranged from harassment when players are throwing, threats and general aggressive behaviour. This will not be tolerated. Sanctions that can be given for any of the above is a warning, suspension from the league, expulsion from the league and future entry the following season.
We are lucky to secure sponsorship for the past number of years from Greene King that helps to keep the league going and we do not want to do anything that jeopardises our relationship.

The main bone of contention is sticking up and calling of dolls. This has been going on since the game started and is no different now apart from the attitude of players. Bad calls happen in all kinds of sport whether it be football, cricket, rugby, and in Aunt Sally it happens from the Premier Section down to the bottom sections and even on finals night. When a player argues with the sticker up/ caller the player is basing his position on a belief that they either misperceived what happened or doesn't know how apply the rules correctly, or is lying or cheating.
We hope that most of the time these are genuine errors, and it does happen. Not one team can hold their hand up and say they have never given a bad call. If you think a bad call has been given please do not all start moaning out loud while the player is still throwing, (he or she has not called it) but hold your displeasure until after the leg. I’m quite sure none of you have said when a call has gone in your favour ‘Nope, don’t give me that’.
If you are not happy, the captain only should have quiet word with the opposite captain that you are not best pleased, but that will be the end of the matter. You can always put in a complaint after the game to the committee.

Also, Wednesday nights is the night for Oxford Aunt Sally. If you want to change a game the other team do not have to agree, it may be inconvenient or impossible for them to do so. Don't go blaming that team, look at yourselves to see why you have been put in that position.

What we will not accept is some of the aggressive and bad behaviour that have been reported to us or we have heard from others. Enough is enough and we can not let the reputation of The Oxford Aunt Sally League be destroyed.
The committee has many sanctions that can be used, as previously mentioned.
We do not want it to come to that, we need to get back the fun in playing on Wednesday nights and for both teams to have a good night. Remember the landlord has final say who can come onto their premises, and they can bar any player even during the game, and they will not be allowed to play at that particular pub or club in future.
