Guy Tries To Join Five A Side Kickabout, Receives Insane 14 Page ‘Code Of Conduct’ Document

Next level insanity.

As you get older, it becomes harder and harder to organise a kick about with your mates and so more and more of us end up joining up with random mates of mates in a weekly game, usually governed by a WhatsApp group. Most of these are fairly easy going affairs, but then, well then there’s the one you’re going to read about in this article.

An innocent enough sounding guy called Martin (who sounds like he’s into boxing as well from his Twitter handle) revealed that he enquired about joining a weekly game, only to be greeted with an absolutely insane 14 page document detailing the rules and regulations of the club. I’ll let him pick out the highlights:

I mean I’m gonna play devil’s advocate here and say that it I’m in a bunch these WhatsApp groups and it is VERY annoying when people drop out at the last minute/turn up late etc etc, but often it literally can’t be helped a lot of the time and I don’t think the answer to that is to be form a totalitarian regime around what’s essentially supposed to be a bit of a kickabout with your mates? Maybe it works for these guys, but I’m in no rush to be formally exiled by my friends for 32 weeks because I’m in a car accident and can’t make it to the game and didn’t let anyone know because I was in a coma for a week. Sorry guys.

Props to Martin too for doing an excellent blow by blow analysis of the ridiculousness of the whole situation. If you ever need some work, hit us up.
