Unfortunately, the minority of coaches from the traditional powerhouses hate competing for a spot for nationals so they lobbied to change a regional system, that worked from a fan perspective in the beginning, into the pathetic meet we have now.[/quote]

Yep, this is how it went down.

It also hurts athletes in the vertical jumps when it comes to competing for the Bowerman.
