AUDL Broadcaster Matt Douglass Responds About Team Payments
Matthew Douglass, who broadcasted games for the AUDL last season, responded in the comments to our article about a lack of payment from teams for his services:
While I cannot speak on behalf of Richard, and I would never intend to, I can speak for myself, since I was mentioned in the article. I have to say that since the time this article was posted, I have been in communication with the aforementioned teams, and I have received payments from Kentucky and Detroit. By no means do I want to defend Cranes Owner, Michale Mosses, but no amount of money was ever agreed upon – only that I would be paid for my services. While I did not receive any payment, Michael sent me an email late in the season, explaining the situation, so I knew what the outcome would be. Although I still have many questions about the league, and feel that things could have been done differently, I do respect the AUDL for what they did for the game of Ultimate Frisbee, which I consider to be my favorite sport. Like any fan of the game, I hope to see this sport grow. I think the AUDL has taken the steps to do that, and I look forward to future seasons.
