Re: Sponsors Beware
So what you are saying is that an ‘A’ team should be able to compete with a Major team day in and day out? So an ‘E’ team should be able to compete with a ‘C’ team day in and day out. Sounds like there only needs to be 2 divisions in softball according to you. Upper and Lower with strict restrictions on Upper as far as Major players go. If you limit the Major teams to let’s say 7 Major players, those 7 players value is just going to go up. Now the guys that are left off the 4 Major teams will be spread out amongst the rest of the Conference. So now you want these A/AA teams to up their budget and spend more money to pick up 1 maybe 2 of these guys. 1 or 2 guys will not make you a competitor still. And if it does, then the guys who were on the team before you picked up the Major guys are now more valuable in their eyes and want more $$. Teams won’t spend a few thousand extra dollars to get later flights and you expect them to fork out more money for players and still not guarantee them to make it to Sunday?? Makes perfect sense. So now let’s hear the part about putting restrictions on paying players!! My rebuttal is waiting.
