[eDebate] The AFA proposal

Three things:
1.  Is just the stuff that's underlined the new proposal?  Much of the rest looks very familiar.
2.  Indeed, the rest includes my favorite line from the AFA Code (which was copied word-for-word into the ADA rules as well):  "Their tournament is not run to benefit financially the best school".    That phrase has been in there for at least 10 years.  When I first started coaching, I read it and thought that there was prize money involved, or maybe that it was a prohibition on prize money (NOTE:  "best" is supposed to be "host").  If we're amending this document, a significant editing is in order.
3.  On the substance of Jason's complaint, I find it hard to judge.  I assume some of this is a response to the CEDA Nats situation (but I don't know that for sure).  It's certainly sad if that's what we're legislating here, but I'm not clear about that from the document (are we legislating behavior in rounds, out of rounds, both??).  I'm skeptical about the need for this (think it could be solved through common-sense instead), but I'd like to hear from proponents and opponents.
