    It, under the new rules, effectively funnels money from local tournaments to Josh and his elite level friends who play in the nationals. Otherwise, not too much to offer.

    Quoted from DNO:

    What a shitty way to mislead people about the IFPA.
    Seems how 75% of the 1$ stays in the State that events are played in, going to the 16 top players in that state.
    But I guess all those 16 Ohio players are Josh's elite buddies tooo?
    .
    Nobody had a bad word to say about IFPA before, when Josh and company were doing all this for free.
    But take a dollar, and then return it to the players, oh my!!

    You're right it was shitty, I left out the money is funneled to Josh and his elite friends at the state *and* national level. That's really semantics though since to make nationals they need to win $$$$$$ at state. You may find it crazy but the tip players do tend to know who each other are.
    As for the other point, they still aren't being paid. There would be less of a complaint from most people if they just charged a registration fee and used that to pay for the administration rather than trying to take in as much as possible and redistributing it to their friends.

    Of course a registration fee to cover the expenses of the organization wouldn't have accomplished what you wanted to do, because what you wanted to do was have the masses give money to the elite. It's working, it's your ball do as you please, but I'm not going to pretend I like it.
