Default Ever heard of this start time?

Got my schedule last night for my mens fall team. This league has always had start times starting at 6pm through 9:30pm. This season we have games starting at 4:50. I doubt a single 4:50 game will be played, I'm guessing there will be forfeits every time. Ever heard of that for a Monday start time?

The earliest I can recall offhand is 6:20. I don't think there is any chance at all that 4:50 start time is correct. Somebody screwed up.

This league is always trying stuff. They try to get a Saturday coed league going every season but they never get enough teams. They're the only league in teh area that does a winter league. They removed the 9:30 games from fall league and replaced them with this ridiculous 4;50 game. I'm sure there are a lot of outraged people.

Earliest I've played is 6:15 & that was a B getting there with enough warm-up time. That's a screw-up on someones part. I'd get everyone to talk to the league director & bump it up.

I've played games at 5:00. But that was a military on base league. Probably half of those were forfeits as well.

Damn, we've got 2 of these idiotic 4:50 start times. 2 games down the drain.

4:50 is pretty stupid. One league later in season goes to 5:30 cuz there are no lights. And people are still scrambling to get there and we really don't have traffic to speak of like the city.

Where in the Bay are you? When I left there was a lot of traffic and I don't imagine that has changed.

I've heard of that start time but one league is an airport league where all games are played on one field, the other is a cop league. As for unspecialized leagues, that's unheard of for weekday games.
