So Joe H and Zeke are getting back to the roots of how the competition was originally designed before a lack of interest from women had their spots replaced with more men.
Actually, from the conception, women really didn't have an interest in playing. Other than Tavish and Amanda. Minna did it because we asked her too and Kalee as well. Actually, we begged them to play to fill spots. It was always a question of whether or not we could even field those spots. The main reason we did away with it was because we wanted true competition through-out the event. Not just warm bodies to fill spots.
That's why Joe wants to see a level of competition to get into that spot. It will show general interest and actually give us the fight to win that all of us want.
I'm not going to lie, I'm skeptical. But in a good way. I want the ladies to prove me wrong and show up and commit to playing in the event. The thing you'll find out is that it is a true battle between sides. Everyone who shows up really wants to win. And it shows on every face at the end when you are waiting for those last groups to come in. It's quite a unique experience and it's not as fun if we have to drag someone to play.
