Oh please....show your proof....put up or shut up.
And stating that all the directors are evil people? I may not like a lot of what Hop has done, but he's hardly up there with Voldemort or Sauron....get a grip.
Your cred just got got shot down in flames with those claims.
And your gullibility quota has just taken a boost. Look up the locations of past DCI management meetings.
And I never wrote that ALL directors were evil. I wrote that I thought MANY of them were. That conclusion is based on 60+ years of experience in the activity. I will admit that what I wrote is an over simplification. All corps directors have always looked after themselves, and their units. Nothing about that situation has changed. And it isn't all wrong. What is wrong is that many of them would willingly screw any other unit, or the activity itself, by adopting a shortsighted view when the "self advantage" concept butts up against a "what's in the best interest of the activity". conflict.
I have had DCI directors tell me that non competitive corps had no right to exist. I could name names, but what would that serve. It's enough that that mindset exists. Ironically, these were guys who ran corps that simply "made up the field." They never had a real shot of winning. Their corps have made up the field for decades, and persevere to this day.
The big difference between now and BITD is that BITD the directors did not run the activity.
I believe that it is a conflict of interest to have the directors running the activity. A separate, outside Authority, not connected with, or beholden to, any corps should run the activity in the best interest of ALL corps. Does that mean limiting the big boys, and giving everyone a level playing field? You bet it does. Does it mean kowtowing to the median? Yes. It does. Does it mean adopting the lowest common denominator? By. No. Means.
