Certainly there are some positive elements to the new plan and I think you hit on the top two.
Just out of curiosity, and I am not trying to infer anything negative by this question, but are you a current junior player playing national tournaments or a parent? I have talked too many of both at tournaments and have not found any support for the changes. I am sure there are some of both who do support the changes. I just have not run into any.
Not trying to start an argument or claiming that my opinion is correct or the only thing that is valid. Just curious.
