Vision Of A Compromise?

In the comments on this morning’s piece about a partnership between NexGen and USA Ultimate, a commenter offers a very plausible solution to the current impasse.

[quote]USA Ultimate:- disposes of TCT (tiers) due to the negative reaction.

– commits to supporting a regular season with major showcase tournaments (Chesapeake, Labor Day, ECC, U.S. Open).

– allows Nexgen or some for-profit entity to manage the promotion of these events (potentially NexGen). As promised, prize money is dealt out.

– allows Nexgen to film every game for the frisbee nerds out there (you & me).

– lets their TV network deal thing film top games from these events (ex. finals of ECC).

– governs rules, membership, and rostering.

– focuses on the U.S. Open as their premier event along with Nationals.

– ensures there are qualifying events for the major “showcase tournaments” in similar vain to Chesapeake Open for Chesapeake Invite– I would support exemptions for teams in the top 8 or whatever.

– puts an exemption policy in place for top teams at sectionals.[/quote]

Would this work? What do you think?
