I disagree. I have both mpt and premier as A teams. That is my personal opinion and I have been doing this fir a long time.
I understand if some say they are AA, those people are not wrong its a very borderline situation. By roster they are A. Maybe by performance MPT is AA.
I am a roster person. Some classification people believe in performance only. Some believe in a mix of roster and performance.
All the players you mentioned were available to be picked up by any team.
Personally I like the 3 chip rule but that rule doesnít currently exist in A or AA. I also like the rule that A teams that qualify for the major have to start AA the following year but that rule no longer exists either. I will again try to bring both of those rules back for 2020.
