His opinion is that the tournament is going to be a waste of time, and shitty for the section in general. Why would he compete in it? Technically, he's backing his opinion by not competing in the tournament.
My main issue with the tournament is the start date. It's the end of July - why the fuck hasn't it even started yet?
I also think Leeroy may be running it for the wrong reasons, and that being to prove the haters wrong. IMO the tournament should be ran as some fun for the section, but all it's done is lead to rage and hatred.
I think this one has the chance of actually making it to the end, I've talked with Leeroy a lot on msn and he has actually got down ideas and planned things through, talked with the mods and judges etc. Not like the past few times where they just felt like opening one up and did without any real thought put into it.
But either way I do hope it doesn't stir up a lot of fuss.
Isn't that thepoint of a tournament? To see how you stand amongst the greatest if they are in the tournament or for the newer people to get some time in the spotlight and some atention by the community for them to get noticed and improve at the same time with the Judge's criticism which is going to be by experienced bookers.
