My Apologies

Jul 26, 2013 Written by FIRST Staff

On yesterday's FRC Blog entry discussing our alliance selection procedure, a negative comment was posted that was directed to two specific teams.  Negative comments about specific teams or individuals are not in the intended spirit of this blog, and we should not have allowed them to be posted. I sincerely apologize for that. The comment, and follow-on response, have been deleted.

I want to see honest, vigorous discussion on this blog, but I see no advantage to pointing fingers at specific teams or individuals. It’s fine to raise concerns over behaviors you’ve witnessed, but please leave specific teams or individuals out of the discussion. If you see an issue with a specific team or individual at an event, please raise it with the proper authorities or go to Pit Admin to complete a non-medical incident report form. If a concern is identified between events, please send an email to with the details. Your concern will be addressed.

Again, I apologize for allowing that comment to be posted.
