I got to spend some time with Tom Crawford this weekend during a Coaching Ethics Workshop and on the sidelines while watching and coach JBU women at the UPA DIII National Championship Tournament. Tom is a very smart and well educated individual who has the best outlook for Ultimate as a sport and Organization.

I like the name change. I never really thought about it until now but USA ULTIMATE makes way more sense than UPA. It's more descriptive and just sounds more legitimate.

However, I would have gone with a more circular/oval logo. A disc wrapping around the words USA ULTIMATE with the red, white, and blue flight lines would have looked better. I also like the USA Ultimate logo on the five jerseys made for last years Worlds: http://fiveultimate.com/store/replica-gear/white-fusion-jersey-usa-sub-blue-red.html

wow...Rohde did you become a PR machine for someone else other than the FDA?

I have mixed feelings about all this, and its not like there's much that can be done about it, so interested to see what happens with it. It is weird that we have a large contingent of Canadians that were UPA members, and now a whole team has to become a USA ultimate member? I mean I'm a member of the French Federation now, but I'm pretty sure we couldn't have brought over a whole team of Americans and said our address was in the US and have competed.

Seems like we're heading towards something new...just hope it still involves beer and parties.

p.s. On an unrelated note. Someone finally stepped up to host a UPA natties party again. So if you are heading up to Wisco make sure you go, as they are normally the shit.

I bet they still let Canadians play in the USA Ultimate Series. You don't have to be French to play in the French Open. More teams=more money and it's not like we hate Canada. Mexicans are a different story though. Fuck them; Mexicans should have to wear yellow stars and carry papers.

I would say that its different in the fact that you don't have to be part of the French tennis association to play in the French Open. If the canadian teams didn't have to become USA ultimate members but could still compete and just pay the entry fees for the tournaments they enter, I would agree. But now we're asking them to become members of USA ultimate? Maybe they'll change that...but i doubt it.
