I agree with this. I for one do not care about getting discs, I am set on my bag and the discs that I throw, so I would just end up with a bunch of plastic sitting in my garage.
I would prefer to play for money, but wouldn't want to pay pro entry fees when I know that 95 percent of the time I won't even come close to cashing. However, if the entry fee for pro was on a sliding scale I would definitely play pro because I would have the chance to win some money (even if the odds are low), but the entry fee would be low enough that I wouldn't care about the fact that most of the time I would not cash.
It would kinda be like playing the lottery -- the odds of me winning are very low, but a ticket is cheap, so what the hell, I'll play because it is fun and you never know, one day I might get lucky and win.
I think the combination of trophy only ams and sliding scale pros, would definitely motivate more people to move up to pro, which would in turn increase pro playing fields and the purse.
