Wish I knew who I was disagreeing with.
And I will never understand why anyone worries about usssa getting a county to pay their mortgage for them. Seems like a sweetheart deal for the players and the organization. Wish I could get the county to pay my mortgage.
Peace my man, it looks like you don't like the event and don't understand the roster rules or how it expanded.
Yes the incredible increase in teams did cause a problem, they just can't fix the problem until next year without telling teams they can't come.
Greed might come into play if they expanded the amount of days because the gate would increase or say anyone can get in, but they actually turned away teams and actually told some teams they couldn't use the roster they wanted. I am not aware of any new classifications being added but not sure about that.
When you get major players to fly to a tournament and see the excitement players have for playing for their state I don't think people think its a meaningless tournament. I guess you are saying every tournament is meaningless.
States like california have more than one team because california is the size of a small country. I have never heard the idea of only one team from one state but maybe you know more than me.
I have never heard usssa say they are the self proclaimed greatest association. Do you have a link to this quote? I have been to 6 conventions and never heard them talk about room nights. Only haters care about room nights.
