Re: Extend the number of qualifiers for the YEC?
Well, if it were 16 qualifiers I would have a chance to play, but I voted for 8 and here's why:
Even though 200 people played this year, less than half of that number play regularly, and even fewer play every week. Unless your picks are ridiculous, if you play every week you have a good shot at being at least around #40 just from sheer volume of events. I haven't done that well this year and missed several weeks, but I am at #14 right now and I think higher in the new ranks. Limiting it to the top 8 really does emphasize that these are the best players, not just the ones who played the most.
I'm not too passionate about this argument I just made, and it looks like I'm losing in the poll. I just thought I would present the opposing opinion. Obviously I will have no problem with playing the YEC should I qualify in the top 16.
