throw that right back at ya (not trying to be a smart a$$).
How do you explain to a team of parents / kids / heck even Intermediate young men, that take three days off work to drive to Whitby, stay over here, eat here, spend lot of money here so that they compete against a team they have not seen all year and they get it handed to them?
Or better yet, you make it to a Final in whatever division (other than "A"), and get it handed to you "In The Finals".
I guess the point I was trying to make is that yes, costs will be incurred in making tournaments mandatory, but what about the costs for the teams that don't get a fair chance at the biggest tournament of the year?
All because some folks cannot make it all year for whatever reasons, but can make the Provincials a priority. Who is it that is being treated unfairly?
