It is nice to see that we have once again reached that annual point of you talking out of your ass.
If you could please elaborate on what exactly you mean by "as the conference is set up lower level teams don't see too big of a chance to be playing in the final few games"? It seems that you are stating that the conference some how limits and classifies teams for conference play.
Conference is an open league where each team brings its best players to participate. There is no classification within conference itself. The committee does evaluate teams based upon the rosters to determine which world they would qualify for in September. However, there is no different levels of conference, there is just conference.
I fail to see how sponsors deciding not to build the best team possible to participate in this particular league with no point restrictions is the fault of the organization. Seems that it is more on the sponsor's shoulders in attempting to sandbag for the end of the year, rather than put the best product forward.
