FT is coming of age, it feels like it's on the fulcrum of crossing over to a professional sport and peoples expectations are much higher than 30yrs ago.

The thing to do is knock the emotional responses out of it all and look at it like you'd run a professional business. One set of rules and a criteria to host - if you can't match or reach these two things, then you don't get to host.

Install a proper committee and steering party, bring everyone in and tell them what's expected of them to be a member country.

There's enough good people around to make the changes and more importantly there's a lot of people that care about the sport and it's future.
Agreed. Although I think organisations like WFTF/BFTA, WHFTA/UKAHFT should take steps to protect the intellectual property of the formats they've established. But that's for the lawyers ...
