Yes. I acknowledged that. Hence the reason why I said he strikes me more as a Limp Bizkit guy. Try to keep up.

I'm probably going to get in trouble for this...My formula for all divisions is this: Total registration $ for division minus expenses for division = payouts.

So in other words, I payout as much money as I can for any one division without running the event in the red. Is it 85%? I donno. Don't care either. I'm paying out as much as I can.

I'm suggesting you consider just paying out 85% to pros to at least be closer (fairer) to the Am payout format who can and typically do cover all of the tournament expenses in C-tiers without losing merch value payout.

Pretty heavy on the generalizations there.

Are you saying some Am only C-tiers can't break even these days in your area, even with specific expenses/fees not counted to determine net entry fees for payout?

C Tiers can always break even whether Am only or not.

TD: "Well, that's cool and all, but I'd really love to just get straight cash instead."
Business: "It's these trinkets or nothing."
TD: "These trinkets are exactly what I was looking for! They're perfect! The players will love them!"

Then you have a player asking you how much money you spent on the trinkets and why that money didn't just go straight to payout instead. (Nothing wrong with players asking questions, of course.)
Then the TD goes and charges players for the cost of the item, which was really free, thus possibly reducing the payout. The sponsor I'm sure did not intend to pay the TD or club for handing out this merchandise. he expected the players to get them for free.

How about pro-only C-tiers paying out 100%?

Your knowledge of the inner workings of tournaments is amazing...

No problem to break even despite the PDGA trying to screw you on the sanctioning fee. Why would it be difficult?
