There will always be sandbagging b/c the higher you go the less teams there are so then guys play as drop downs b/c they have no place to go.

 

That causes a trickle down whereby a player gets bumped to B/C/D, the team folds, player plays as drop down for a year in C/D/E, and the magically they are considered D again and the team can pick up 3 more guys the following year.  After a year you have the same team again playing back in that lower division.

 

What needs to be corrected is once a team/player is bumped that player should be locked into that level for at least 3 years.  They can play a division lower but only as a counted drop down.

SSVIR is right...the problem lies that there is no incentive to play up because E teams win $5000 per tourney with 3 pickups and 4 reclassed players...i say get rid of prize for E besides getting their money back, shirts that say "I survived an E tournament" and free entry fees to the next tourney...give D teams lower entry fees and prize packages and give C teams even lower entry fees and prize packages.

It's also not fair to good players and teams that get moved up that their sanctions don't really support higher divisions...instead they know E is the money cow...

Why can't there be a tourney where upper players can put their names down if they wanna play in it and the director does like a draft and gives each team one or two of these upper player and make it even...sand bagging will always happen unless upper players have somewhere to play locally.

You won't get no sympathy from me...you looking for sympathy?? Look in the dictionary between S**T AND SYPHILLIS...

Everyone is wrong,  people sandbag to gain a competitive advantage period. Very few like to play up to the competition, eliminate divisions and just play. The same dudes you idiots protest are the same people you play league nights against. The word idiot is not directed at anyone in particular.

Wanna fix it? It’s simple...

C Division 4/1 up
$300 entry
1st- $2000
2nd- Free Tournament

D Division 1/1 up
$300 entry
1st- $1000
2nd- Free Tournament

E Division 0HR
$300 entry
1st- Free Tournament
2nd- TShirts

No drop down EVER!!! You won’t have to police it. It will police itself!

Just understand that if a director does this, they will starve to death. Why? The next director will use this to his/her advantage and do an e tourney with $2000 and till the dice HR’s. Softball became a living for some people. Face the facts, it’s not going to change. We all continue to talk about the same bs the last 10 years..

Hearing of several player reclassifications already.

 

The cycle continues.

 

The answer should be pretty simple ... the highest roster you have been on in any association in the last three years is your player rating.

 

You want to stay at the same level then your are designated as a drop down.  If you play as a drop down on any team that gets bumped then the three year cycle starts over again.
