NorCal created a survey to solicit feedback on some USTA league issues. Results are out and can be seen here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/sr.aspx?sm=QZZABCQ7m6pF8QKvgQMjbF2EUE9d3kDVsvAfX9ZgdqI_3d Some of the interesting parts: 1. Majority like the competitive aspects of league and would rather have a playoff than just crown the winner of each local area regular season - see questions 4 and 10. 2. Majority have no problem playing weaker competition - see question 6. 3. Majority thinks self-rating irregularities are common, and a significant amount think it is routinely abused - see question 7. Me personally, I find it amusing that the majority is ok playing weaker players but is so concerned about the possibility of playing a stronger self-rated player. I think people are too focused on winning playoffs versus improving and enjoying the game. But that's just me and clearly the majority opinion is not with me.
