Sin The Fields: Accidentally Unionizing Club Ultimate

The NexGen League almost happened.

Pat and Tad peel back the onion on one of ultimate’s little known “what ifs,” the time in 2012 when the elite tier of the men’s club division almost left USAU for a NexGen league. How did it happen, what shady cabal was deciding the sport’s future, and what impacts did accidentally unionizing elite club teams have on the club division today? Those tears you hear aren’t from the onion, they are tears of righteous anger over the injustices of the TCT.
