Pulling two events from the East side makes it REALLY dificult for Eastsiders to qualify!
Did the City cup fill last year? No, no it didn't. THE major reason....It didn't count as a qualifier for the WSS. Plain and simple, you cut the need for players to play the series Championship if it doesn't do them any good in series standings.
Regardless if it means East siders need to travel one more time, making the Whinners tourney a qualifier is the right decision for the series, the tourney it self, and the players!
