GMS

For those of you not in the email loop and have the unfortunate task of dealing with GMS, have a look here.

How many from our region were involved in the survey??
Genuine question based on the misinformation they've given on previous surveys.

Ultimately, it seems to me they've gone balls deep on this system and are beyond reigning back on the thing.

I agree. This system is designed to make life easier for the paid employees at Twickenham and takes no account of the fact that the average user is usually an ageing Alicadoo who has no formal IT training.
Recent attempts to get parents to register little Jonny and Katie through the labyrinthine system and having to select registered players through allocating them to individual teams show nothing has been learnt.
An example. Johnny Smith is a hooker registered with the club with GMS but is normally a second team player who hadn’t been allocated to the first team.
On Saturday morning he is called up for emergency cover for the first team to ensure requisite front rows. However, the poor mug having to fill in the GMS teamsheet find’s Johnny’s name doesn’t show up on the drop down list of players so he can’t be selected.
So they play him anyway and in the official GMS post match teamsheet the hooker position comes up as “Name Withheld.”
This means you could actually play anyone as there is nobody actually checking registrations these days.

Ah yes, the affiliations.
Lets not forget Yorkshire were one of the Counties who took part in the trial for adults having to affiliate. Two of us did (to test it) - then found ourselves as members of the registered players squad.
Anyone involved in the development, in any way, with this crock of sh*t system needs to have a serious word with themselves.
