It's not a cherry pic, hand pic, to me being that all teams are able to play in this event!
I am happy to see a good amount of teams enetered, and this is why I feel they should have another event on the West coast?
Teams on the West have more adversity to handle than teams from the EAST; Crazy time change going there to adjust (loose sleep for tourney), and if I was on the East coast coming over to the West, you gain 2-3 hours of sleep to play, and then when you go home, you can sleep most of the flight being the hours you gained will reverse back to normal.
The year Bay Area got a BERTH to Worlds, they played more of a West Coast scheduled and raked in points other teams neglected to come to.
More Conference teams on the West will make it easier for West coast teams to make the MWS.
Teams/managers should dictate this and no favoritism allowed? Cause some powers will complain if West Coast Tourneys are taking berths away from East Coast teams.
Just think if the West Coast teams neglected to play East Coast events, those points given to winners would shrink!?!?
Good luck this weekend and safe travels.
