It's not a dig at USTA texas, sorry if I put it that way, not intended. If you're getting bumped, and one should know if they self rated and destroyed, it's time to end the year with some real competition. That's what I meant the message to be.You're making it sound more sinister than it is. Texas has always allowed players to finish out the year at the rating they held that year. The new garbage software TD's have been stuck with just won't allow the proper adjustments to be made. This is why players have to register before that deadline, wherein the past, TD's could just adjust it for that particular tournament.
Why shouldn't players be able to finish playing 2021 with their 2021 rating?
