Hi guys,

Something has happend over the last 24 hours that I feel I need to address (I hate having to get all serious as my site is all about having fun). Now most of you will know that RuffiansFC has grown out of a group of us from the CrankygamersUK community. Also alot of you will know that I used to do alot of work over there such as gamernights other bits and bobs.
Ruff Gaming.com itself has grown over the last 2 years and has gone passed anything I had planned or hoped for (but love running it and enjoy gaming with you guys). Without Crankygamers I would never have started this mad website/leagues/RuffiansFC etc so I will always thank the CGUK community for starting me on my own path of internet website madness. The only reason I started my own page off over 2 years ago was because the powers that be at CGUK didn't feel they had space for it over there - so I was happy to start a place for us to do our league and a place for RuffiansFC to grow without getting in anybody's way but we have always had strong links to CGUK.

Now thats the history here is what has happened - Somebody over at the CGUK forum asked if they could start a league and a pro team. Well my name was mentioned and told to speak to me about joining up here. Well I have now been told that I have been attempting to poach people away from their site (which is the last thing I have ever wanted or have ever done).

They now have set up their own league and Pro Team which they are totally within their right to and it has nothing to do with me what they do. The more gamers playing Fifa in any league and any pro team is great stuff in my eyes - the more the better.

I want to say that I don't want to have any bad blood between Ruff Gaming and CGUK in any way at all. I also want to say that I know alot of you use the forums over there and 1 it has nothing to do with me in anyway what websites anybody uses and 2 I am happy that people do use the CGUK forum as I want to see the CGUK site go from strength to strength hence why I have a link on my front page to the CGUK website to try and send gamers over there aswell as my site.

Now back to the main point about them setting up their own team - Anybody that wants to join their team I won't hold anything against anybody that chooses to leave RuffiansFC and joins the new CGUK team. Ofcourse I don't want anybody to leave as we have such a great group that makes up our squad. But as I say if you want to join them then that is fair enough but all I ask is let me know so I know where I stand.

Whatever happens RuffiansFC will continue as I am going nowhere and enjoy what I do!

Sorry to have a serious moment but it's just a few things I needed to say - All I ask is whatever you decide do not start a war between the two sites as I value where Ruff Gaming started from and also I have many many friends on both sites.

Ruff

What a load of ******** lol!

I've just read the thread over on crankies now and frankly I think Toz is somewhat concerned about having what he thinks are "rival" sites. Obviously I could see his point if we were a completely unknown unaffiliated site but most of us are die-hard crankies and Ruff only set this up because Toz didn't let him on CGUK in the first place scratch

Until recently we were CGUK's "FIFA section" Laughing so I think it's silly but what can you do?

Do I get a Bosman? Very Happy

Seriously, I think Toz was a bit harsh, but in some ways correct...people have migrated here beyond Ruffians FC/the league...mainly because of Ruffians FC/the league.

Can I make a suggestion...the Ruff Nights on a Tuesday could easily be the Cranky Gamer 360 nights...put out an olive branch to Toz...unless there is another hidden agenda...which I don't believe. We still have all the competitions here etc (Ruff get the F1 up to date Twisted Evil) but to be fair to Toz the Ruff Nights is direct competition to Cranky Gamer Nights.

Further more there is no problem with a Cranky League but the team might be a problem...we can take part in multiple leagues but just one club.

Anyhoo...I signed a contract with Ruffians FC so I will be staying here...bet you are sorry you asked now! Shocked Shocked Very Happy

That's a good idea that have a joint British Race night on tuesday! We'll think about it good sir Wink

And yeah the league is perfectly reasonable I'll join when I get back on the 360 Smile

Let's hope it can work out for the best.
Let's hope toz thinks before he takes a hard line.

Ok guys well Toz has posted that it wasn't aimed at me or Ruff gaming which has hopefully cleared that up.

I am still yet to have recived any sort of answer to a PM that I made to Toz when this 1st blew up but at least he has posted his views in the CGUK gamernight thread for everybody to see.

As regards to maybe joint gamernight I like the idea but feel that will be going against what Toz wants - I will try and make contact and see if it is workable. What I have done is offered my help to Depressed Monkey & PGtips77 on the CGUK forum with regards to the CGUK Xbox 360 Gamernights Fifa Leagues and a Pro team. I have have offered advice and help if they want it.

Hopefully this can all be put behind us and we can move on
