I hope this isn’t above your pay grade...NEVER in my playing experience..which was all norcal/west coast tourneys except for worlds...did elite players “wreck” any localized or regionalized tournaments.
You might add how was this possible?
In my playing past..every elite player was placed on the major list and there were strong restrictions on how many elite players could be on any one team.
Dan Smith and his deep pockets was highly involved with our norcal programs and Danny Brown did a job regulating his regional major list, and his AA, A, B,C player lists.
Dan had a much tougher task trying to make it to playing Sunday when he was playing under Danny Browns local/regional regulations..why? Because he couldn’t just buy anyone to add to his team.
that in return GREW divisions... i mean really...can you not see that nationalizing division after division has devastated each division it’s been tried in?
NOT ONE NATIONAL DIVISION HAS BEEN ABLETO STAD ON ITS OWN... EVERY NATIONALIZED DIVISION HAS TO FEED OFF OTHER DIVISIONS.
