Mailbag time!

Q: If we were to sample the people who watch ultimate that have played higher level club/college (let’s say Regionals-level), what percentage do you think prefer a version of pro ultimate (AUDL, PUL, WUL) vs high level club/college (Nationals/Pro-Flight level)? Do we think the pro-level watcher number is growing amongst former/current players? I know “viewer friendliness” is always at the forefront of pro ultimate, but as a current player, having to learn a new set of differences for each league is a barrier I rarely want to overcome and default to club/college due to familiarity.
