In Dallas there were as many as 20 players that received "B" benchmark NTRP ratings at year-end that were allowed to successfully appeal down _ in clear violation of National USTA League Regulations. Apparently it was a computer glitch. But the USTA does not want to rescind the illegal appeals _ because that would take some time and cost a little money. Here are just a few examples: Terry Newman 4.0B --> 3.5A Tom Alexander 4.0B --> 3.5A Bob Kayser 4.0B --> 3.5A Bob Haney 4.0B --> 3.5A John Stephen 4.0B --> 3.5A Lanny Ereckson 4.0B --> 3.5A Norm Goheen 4.0B --> 3.5A These guys played district/area championships in Dallas and many also played Super senior TEXAS SECTIONALS. Do you know if this is happening in other Sections? It seems like we should have the same rules for all league players.
