Author: talk about being sanctimonious,
Subject: To the above posters, it has been pointed out repeatedly that feiseanna are remaining open up through the week of the feis to accommodate all of your schedules, they are forgiving late fees, and that they cannot really create a schedule until numbers are known. Yet you want more?
In reply to: It's just common sense. 's message, "I have no idea why you are so sanctimonious. The PP said she doesn't sign up for a feis when another child has a scheduled event that day, and you call her entitled? Should she throw away $60 on the off chance she can go?" on 22:27:31 10/02/18 Tue

The post also said had to be mindful about expenses, too - guessing that they 'threw away' their money when things came up?

What about answering the post? How many games were ever missed? But let's keep shooting down Irish dancing and expecting more from feiseanna organizers than coaches or leagues. Gee, that says a lot, doesn't it?

Which group has really extended themselves over the years to work to accommodate the demands, whoops, excuse me -"kind asking" of parents? New awards, new stages, better judges, earlier endings, extra comps, better food, venues near malls or entertainment. I wonder.

Yet, we still see coaches screaming at 10 year olds on fields in pouring down rain all the time. We see the constant berating of players who are 11 and 12 when they don't get a play right. Yet we see demands of coaches and leagues to pay up NOW or don't play. Yet, we see the coaches with - you missed practice, sorry, you're not playing the next two games. Yet, we see the favours played out for travel teams regardless of ability to play. Yet, we see three day weekends booked for travel teams - no times given, maybe play one match a day, but have to be there all three or cut from the team. And we see that when something is said to a coach or a league, players mysteriously are dropped from league play (oh, the form must have gotten lost). So, before you tout that sports and all take precedence over a single feis, because of a schedule? Think of the reputation those "sports" have -

Right, and you complain that a feis can't give a schedule when they put out their syllabus for people to enter. That's the definition of being sanctimonious AND entitled.
