2. I've been preaching one word on the pro side...consolidation. It has to happen with divisions and total tournaments. A short term solution would be *if* pros are going to continue to play no money added tournaments (c tiers) then there should not be protected divisions. But on a much larger scale I think certain regions (i.e. a 4-state region) should be limited to one tournament/weekend that offers pro divisions. Force people to travel or don't play. This creates a trickle down effect that solves other problems. One is that lower rated pros feel like they get more value or have more of a shot at cashing in 100 player fields vs 10 player fields where 2-3 guys might be 1000 rated. The second thing that might happen is that these *tweener* players who should actually be playing Adv likely would choose to play Adv at a local C tier vs travelling out of state. The other thing this does is frees up many pro players who would likely play nearly every single weekend to pursue more grass roots efforts on the weekends they choose not to travel out of state. I think one of the biggest problems we have is that our *leaders* are simply playing too much. I know this because I'm one of them and everyone I'm playing against fall into this category as well! Grass roots isn't something that necessarily needs to be organized from the top. I have a million ideas and so do many people I've talked to locally. It's just a matter of getting people out there to do it.
