    I agree with Phil.

    On top of that I would also point out that comparing UK with US is counter productive. France too.

    Hi Paul,

    I'm not certain I am in complete agreement but I do think your proposal has merit and should be considered. I think the "free market" argument is about self interest more than anything...

    I think my view has already been said elsewhere. The BF calendar is far far too busy given the size of the sport. We really don't need a specific u23 set of events.
