I used to to give WB some credit. But he is so concentrated on the juniors that he is missing the whole point.
The us has a broken system, even with some of the stuff he mentions (I didn't read it all). Still he misses the point of players competition. We shouldn't be limiting our juniors to only playing with eachother. Our national ranking system should include everyone, college players, teaching pros, and juniors. Just like in many European countries. Everyone should be playing in the same draw. No separated by age divisions.
Ive been in Europe for 10 years now, France, Germany, switzerland. I just laugh at the pitiful system I grew up playing in.
