Re: First topic for Tim: Conference unlimited rosters
As far as stopping the best sponsors in the nation from amassing the best teams.....not really the end goal, and probably a correct assumption. The idea is that you may the gap from C to conference A,AA,or M that much easier for potential sponsors...and yes Major players would still command big bucks and the best guys at each "rating" would as well... capitalism ain't going away anytime soon. Sponsors have to live with what they helped to create there.
I've also said for a while that expanding the points system could help as well...with having an Elite, Major, Watch, and Conference chip levels to better classify conference players. A guy who plays B-AA-A-AA-M-AA-A-AA is really hard to classify based on his teams.
Whatever changes are ever made, should be in the best interest of how to attract more sponsors and teams to conference usssa, and while we can all speculate at what is best, being defensive of the teams and sponsors we have can only last so long.
