: : If that's the case I agree that a boycott is called for. Making money off the players effort and hard work and then charging those same players to stay and watch other teams. CLASSLESS!!!!!!
: : Many other quality tourneys going on during this time........
: : : : I heard the most greedy sh!t Iíve ever heard about this tourney this year. I said last year the prices were ridiculous and they charge for parking but they took it to a whole other level this year. If you are a player in the tournament and you want to watch a game after you have played, they are charging the kids $5 to stay in the gym and watch. Obviously the Catholic school isnít teaching the 7 deadly sins cause they are leading by example when it comes to pure greed. The teams already paid for their kids to be at the tourney and play so why double charge the kid to stay and watch another game? Competition may be loaded with teams but they are screwing fans of the game left and right.
: : : Interesting- I once took my entire team to watch a tournament game while we were in San Diego and we were not in the tournament. The director knew we were not in it and still let all the players in for free.
: I cannot believe this. That is unreal! Charging players to watch another game? OMG - Greedy - unbelievable. If they are that desparate for money - go rob a bank. Dont rob kids. wow
Damien could possibly make more money by hosting a slightly lower profile tournament with just good local teams, as fewer players would stick around to watch.
The gym would still nearly sell out - but with more adults paying full price. How many adults were turned away at the gate? I wasn't there. Didn't go as I figured it would sell out every day.
