I agree with your points. Sounds like people who are whining as usual. The fact that everyone forgets is that tourney ball at this age is to prepare the boys for school ball and beyond. If the kids are that good, they should be playing up against older or better competition. It means nothing who wins now. In the end, no one remembers who won when you were 12 or 13. So if some teams are stacked with kids on the border of the age limit, then the only one's suffering are the boys if they are spending there time beating up lesser competition.
