The study of r-blocks of the groups GL(n,q) and U(n,q) (r is a prime, \((r,q)=1)\), was started by arlier [J. Geom. 30, 144-156 (1987; Zbl 0632.51019)] the notion of a fibered loop as a certain incidence structure with algebraic loop structure. She shows here that in the given axiom system the i-th axiom can not be proved out of the first i-1 ones, for every i.
