Teams would stop building to win AA, but lets be real here if you are the 5th best team in the world you are a Major team.
I don't think you would have a conference for very long.
Doomsday speculation at best. You love to point out how everyone else does this and yet upper ball remains. It may take a hit, it could also grow, neither of us knows.
It would be great to have a cut and dried system but it has huge flaws and teams and players just don't think this way.
Teams and players think they deserve a shot to win a world title every single year, and lets be real here that attitude is just entitlement.
Could you imagine teams pulling out of tournaments and intentionally losing to stay 10th instead of getting 8th.
Could you imagine intentionally building a team and paying players all year long, just for one weekend in one class and refusing to make themselves better on purpose? Again Dale, this is a doomsday sensational line, yet all the time we sit on this board and champion how A teams come to compete with anyone and don't care who they play and blah blah.
You don't like the idea, fair enough.
