Let's take it one step further, of the 83% of the people who voted on the survey how many of those people actually play in the conference?
Cuz if they don't then the survey is meaningless. I am going to tell you I bet of the voters on that survey most are keyboard hacks like myself who were never good enough to play the highest level.
If you are going to survey, then survey those who actually play.
And talking to a handful of coaches in fly by conversations don't count.
