I used to play every weekend. Then I moved to a place with no field to speak of, and no active teams. The move also involved a new job, so for at least a couple of years I was too busy putting out fires to hunt for a new field/group to play with. After that long, I kind of drifted away from the sport (and also got older; rolling around on rocks and diving for cover leaves bruises I could ignore in my ahem younger days, but not now). There are fields and players locally now, but my participation is mostly listening to the discussion of what happened at the grounds last week.
My point is people change; TWB does and should too.
