We learn more as the men's league progresses.  The 1st round of Men's 2015 Fall league of  Shirley's Betterers vs Baseline Bombers is a good example why a 4.0 player shouldn't play in the 7.0 level (or it be changed to 6.5 level) Shirley's Betterers sent in two 3.0 players while Bombers  sent in one 4.0 n one 3.0 player. Bombers won10-1.   Had Bombers  sent in two 3.0/3.5 players or Betterers sent in a 4.0 player (which Betterers easily could have)  the scores sure would have been closer. This not only reduces  competition but also  minimizes opportunity for 3.0/3.5 players to play.  Therefore, When this continues n if we check the statics at the end of the season (n past seasons) Its will be obvious how often 3.0/3.5 didn't get  to play.  I feel not fair for the 3.0 /3.5 players. A quick vote from the captains can avoid this  situation from happening again.

Even when Baseline Bombers won the 7.0 game at 10-1, Baseline Bombers only won the match by one point.   Shirley's Betterers 21 to Baseline Bombers 22.   I would say this is a pretty close match, if you ask me.   Had Baseline Bombers not deployed a 4.0 player in the 7.0, Baseline Bombers would definitely have lost the match.  Nevertheless, I do support 6.5 Level Game Set instead of 7.0.   But, for this season, the Captains decided on 7.0 combination, thus allows 4.0 player to participate in the 7.0 game set.

If the goal or idea is to promote 3.0 to play more, then I would recommend that the next men's league should be changed to 6.0/6.5, 8.0, and 9.0 combinations.   I am in full support of this.

Why have combination levels in the Men's league?  I wish we had the number of players in the Diva League that men's league has so that we could eliminate the need for combining levels & have straight across the board levels of players with same calibre of play.  It makes the playing field more level.  I think there are enough men to field a 4.0 league or call it a 4.5 league & 4.0s can play up.  Just my 2 cents worth.

I think a lower ranked player can play up for higher level challenge while higher ranked player cannot play down for bullying.  I saw many league matches where a 4.0 players  took the playing opportunities from a 3.0/3.5 resulting the latter playing less.  It should the other way around so that 3.0/3.5 players can improve..
