Mooch nor Chent started for their teams this past year at the tournaments I went to but people that say they are Major players aren’t wrong.
I have never heard anyone at usssa say “our goal is to create more AA or Major teams” so I am not sure where you are getting that information.
But I like the Elite player idea. The rule that would prevent stacked AA teams is to have a chip limit for AA and A. But when I proposed that rule they would not take a vote on it so it is what it is. There will continue to only be a few AA teams because of the AA teams with elite players all on one or two teams.
