Like I said, I agree with you on certain areas of regrowing the regional game but conference is its own league by its own rules which everyone that participates agrees to. So I just have a hard time seeing the regional expansion applying to a particular league within a particular association.
You get too lost on the conference issue and think it applies to the whole country or specific regions. its one league for 30-40 teams year in and year out. They literally built a league to qualify for the MWS. It has nothing to do with worlds for any level below that. This is a product of local directors not national.
