POLL - Should Players who Qualify for an Open WC Event be Eligible to Compete in Subsequent Trials?
This is more than fine with me, but seems to be in conflict with what the USBF Board was previously proposing.
Back again about Players who Qualify in two USBCs
Jan -- would still prefer to add to B2: If the losing finalist cannot play, then the next team considered for replacement is the semifinalist which lost to the winning team, followed by the other losing semifinalist.
Back again about Players who Qualify in two USBCs
For these purposes (fleeing teammates or as a potential replacement team), it feels all teams should retain at least 4 original players. If one or more of those players has died or become otherwise incapacitated, while I have sympathy, prefer no exception (well maybe death).
Back again about Players who Qualify in two USBCs
We probably should now better define "next highest placed team". I do think we should retain the language of the latter sentence. Btw, this implies a 4 or 5 handed team could be down to 3 players and still retain eligibility. Is this what we want?
Back again about Players who Qualify in two USBCs
Completely agree with no percentage restrictions regarding withdrawn players. My first instinct was players on a Rosenblum year winning Open team should not be allowed in a subsequent event, but I suppose there could be change of teams for the next cycle creating an issue where it makes perfect sense ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
I believe Europe regularly qualifies teams more than a year ahead, and while not ideal, think at worst this is only a very minor consideration. We could always try holding a non-qualifying trials and see how it goes. However, my best guess is it will be a substantially reduced attendance ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
I have not been commenting the last few days further due to more pressing issues on my time. I fully agree with all of Peter's thoughts above. However, I still have an enormous issue with this part of the original post. "2. A player on a team that has ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
The TC has addressed myriad policy issues relating to the trials in the past, especially eligibility standards -- much more so than the Board which typically just rubber stamped the conditions prepared by Jan and the TC. The last few years the TC's issues have become more movement focused as ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
Just tossing this out there. As someone brought up somewhere, much of the problem stems from trying to fit 4 trials into a narrow time window. Is it perhaps time to consider ending the cycle with the Fall NABC? The first trials could be in January and subsequent trials in ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
I would like to make a comment on process. Before this matter, most (all?) material changes in the conditions of contest have first been referred to the Technical Committee for a full discussion and potential recommendation. The opinion of the Tech Committee could then be accepted or rejected by the ...
