Well, maybe not new, but new to me. Apparently some cities here in Texas have fall USTA leagues. These leagues count as far as your USTA rating goes, but for most of these leagues there is no "reward" for winning the league, although in some of the leagues the fall winner gets to play the spring league winner to decided which team goes to sectionals. Most of the time everyone is focused on the springs leagues and the fall leagues are more casual. Now apparently more and more people are tanking the fall matches, particularly those players who were mid season bump ups based on the spring results. Does this happen in other states ?
