I don't disagree but giving people 1 point just creates True Outliers when using Mean as a method to calculate averages, meaning that if you carried the system through to BFTA, all you will be doing is punishing people in lower grades by sending higher class shooters down, as well as making impossible within the season to work off those 1 points, get 3 of those and you are down for the season
The only people who get really punishing are the people in the grade below.
I've no idea what the punishment should be and as it isn't against the rules it makes no difference but I do know that you can't use 1 point.
