Somehow over the last page, everyone started attacking an idea that wasn't presented as the primary reason for change. As Cooper and Timko have said several times now, it's about getting people of the same skill level to play against each other, rather than people of the same age.
Jim, it's unfortunate that people in the advanced division you have played with have been petulant about their distance, or just generally annoying, for that matter. I understand, I've played with those people, too. That doesn't mean that everyone over 40 should get to hide in an exclusive group that's segregated more for social reasons than based on skill.
No one thinks that making an extra ten bucks is going to make anyone rich. But let's not forget, the point of this thread was jack stirring around to see if he could enter his score in multiple divisions, to what?...make more money. Unless he has a doppleganger running around, he's only going to be interacting with one of those divisions on a personal level. His age would essentially allow him to access a larger prize pool that others can't. I don't necessarily have a problem with this, except that Timko keeps pounding it into our heads that statistically, the old guys are just as good as the not-old guys.
