^^^this is what i see happening if they spread this model across the board.

I can also see:
PDGA Am will be all the Rec and Novice players. PDGA Pro will be all the local top current ADV and Pros. While the group between the middle won't be happy about either situation. Almost everyone I know who plays ADV or upper INT wants to be able to play for cash not trophies. We all want to say we are a pro. Lots of us are not at that level yet. But if you turn trophy only on us, we will loose interest. And probably only a handful will buckle down and improve their game so they can move up.
Like usual the governing body is out of touch with its constituents. But that has to do with the poor voting record, and peoples stupidity when it comes to familiarity over logical.
