Good point, however looking at the Alberta and BC powerhouses there are very very few 99s on any of those teams. Also, you may be assuming that the same one's 'preaching' are the current decision makers... possibly calmer heads have prevailed? Who knows?
It looks like Stoon will have at least 8 teams at the Tier 2 level which will be a 'city-wide draft' formed. This seems like an excellent model for development. The top 60 or so kids (4 teams) will play in the Sask AA league - gain exposure, development, high level competition and be largely comprised of 99s.
All of this points to an exciting season next year for a true Saskatchewan AA Bantam league.
