We are not against merger but a few serious reasons creating doubts if the administrators are capable to carry ALL OF US as a united organisation, or if they are biased.
Till now it is proved that they are biased, a selected organisation is targeted and kept out of this merger, are they really uniting?
I take this move (IJRU formation) as a second division. The first division was the formation of WJRF on the name of Rules and now the second division is the formation of IJRU on the name of unity and Olympics.
Both times FISAC-IRSF was weekend by dividing its players and coaches. Who gained out of all this? – just think about it.
We (our skippers, our coaches) gave our time, money and energy to this sport. It is not the a private property of someone or a group of people.
Why do you expect from us to stay silent? Our silence would be an injustice to our skippers and officials.
I am vocal because I am feeling the pain, you are not vocal because the heat is not reached to you but keep it in mind if may reach to you too, if not now but maybe sooner or later.
If you are a leader you should not be biased. If you are biased you should not lead. It is not only you who care about the sport we were also in the same boat, we too gave our best and still contributing.
MERGER means merging all the stakeholders, UNITING means uniting everyone, MEDIATION means the honest effort and find an amicable solution.
Kindly do not hijack the whole Rope Skipping world.
I do not see honest MEDIATION, it creates doubts in our minds that if you are UNITING the sport and its stakeholder through this MERGER or your intention is to takeover the sport on the name of so called OLYMPIC recognition.
