Re: 2 non conference 'B' teams have won Conference events this year. Where is Tim?
Look at everything the conference teams get, paid this and paid that. Maybe this is why the conference tourney's lose $$$ all the time. Why should the B teams get paid bids to A and AA worlds? why should A teams get paid bids to AA world? The top 24 teams playing in the Conference Championship each get $1500 to pay for rooms, that's $36K !!! Most of these teams have good budgets that pay for all the flights and hotels already and of course the never spoken about envelope of cash why not use that money and pay the umpires flights, hotels, food....Also, in a normal year, everyone is playing more than 6 tourney's, so are the teams paying whatever the entry fee is for all the other tourney's? Seems like a lot of $$$ being thrown to the biggest sponsor's who don't need it and it should go to the umps and directors.
