Volume XVII, No. 18 Wednesday, September 20, 2017

For news and game scores/updates, follow on Twitter @Sect4Football


I have had an increasing number of people contact me about this in the past week or more. Some with an iPhone 7, some on computer, some I do not know which. One in particular mentioned he had issues on multiple computers with the Chrome browser, "fixed" it using Internet Explorer. I am sure there are many more with issues of varying causes. 
All I can offer right now is:
** On a PC, right-click and open the link in a new tab or window

** On a PC, try a different browser. Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox are popular. (though SOME Chrome users are reporting problems. For many it works fine.)
** On a handheld device, tap on and lightly press/hold on a link to open it in a new tab. 

** Also ona handheld, another browser could work in this case  too.
This weekend I will look into it and rebuild the main page if I have to.

ALSO - to ensure you are seeing the latest version of this page, on a PC hit F5 or Ctrl-F5 a few times. Or right-click in the middle of the page and select reload or whatever similar ofering your browswer presents.

ATTENTION teams in the 8-man Section 3 & 4 League

I will have the standings for your league here on section4football.com at the bottom of my Standings page (link above)

However I will have to depend on YOU to get the scores to me. Win or lose, have someone email or text me your scores. Or, is someone in that league's administration wants to take on the task, they can send me the results each week. This will only work if YOU do our part to get the score of your game to me as I will not search for results each week. It's up to you.

Text Message Contacting to Section4football.com

If you have an iDevice (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch etc), you can send me a text iMessage to mike@section4football.com

While you CAN of course email me at that same address, this is a feature with Apple devices that you can send a TEXT message to an email address if the recipient has their iDevice set up for it. I do have mine set up.

This can come in handy to report scores quicker than ever.

In regards to that - reporting scores -
all I ask if for is 100% COMPLETE accuracy.

Please do not report unless you are 100% no-doubt-about-it certain.

Please, do not send "I left with 0:34 left and it was 27-0" or "My uncle said it was 24-17".

I prefer you saw it with your own eyes at the end of the game.

Of course you can iMessage me this way for other reasons related to Section 4 Football or the website.

However, unless you are sports news media, please do not text me looking for scores. I will be tweeting scores as they are finalized.
