    Do you mean to get in or about the actual competition? Just curious..... Since it is a group of gym owners, isn't it the gym owners calling themselves popular basing participation on some veiled criteria. Which is fine but state it up front - I think in the beginning there was some lack of information on who was determining participation - when the tweets were going out.

    Getting in. A mastermind or two started it and it had to grow from there. I personally think it will be a fantastic event and look forward to it. However, if the owner of XYZ no-name gym wanted to hop on Board and was willing to chip in his fair share, I don't think enthusiasm alone (even with resources) gets you in the league. My initial response was to a poster that said the "cool kids" were cool in 7th grade. My point is I still think the cool kids are alive and well and running the CL. I think it will be a great event and attended by fantastic teams, but it's definitely being run by the cool kids... (in my opinion)...

    That was that poster's point - that new competitions would be great IF they were innovative and had integrity. But they're not... pretty sure she was saying CL is just a popularity contest so it's not really innovative, and since this isn't 7th grade it isn't cool, or cute. Therefore it's NOT in her category of new, innovative competitions that have integrity.

    I included her original post to get the whole idea.

    I think it means that there are lots and lots of phones made by other companies that are better than the iPhone but everyone continues to purchase iPhones because of their 'prestige' and the name.
    There could be lots of competitions better than USASF Worlds but people will still continue to attend Worlds because its "Worlds".

    You got the point. Market share can always change, but when there is a stranglehold on it, it's much more difficult. And IMO a few big name teams and some money is not going to change the game. More options yes but not a game changer. Otherwise jamfest super nationals would be the new worlds.

    Thank you. I wouldn't concede that other phones are better than iPhones necessarily based on technical stats. There are certainly other phones that are better at specific things, but the iPhone/iPad/Mac cross-platform ecosystem strengths lie in it's elegance, consistency, and ease-of-use. Those type of things don't lend themselves well to side-by-side stats comparisons. I'm not saying there aren't good reasons to buy other phones, but I'm not going to just automatically allow that iPhones are inferior. (Sorry, defending Apple is buried deep in my DNA.)

    I don't think anyone involved in CL thinks they can just throw a competition and change the industry overnight.

    Agreed.

    Change is inevitable. Growth is optional. - someone smarter than me.

    No one wins Worlds with only 1 day of competition.
