Just wondering if anyone knows or if staff can answer this.
Can a 70 major plus player play with a 60aaa team. I know 1 age drop you can't but what about 2 age drops.

I'm not staff but I believe major plus can't drop to AAA, no matter what the ages are.

I asked Dave Dowell the same question and still have his email about it. I moved to 60 M+ this year. My old team was 55AAA. He said that the answer is yes, I can still play because it is only a ONE level drop, but I would be the 'out of bracket' player, one of 3 allowed. Major Plus to AAA equals a 2 level drop, but by going back one age level, the age difference subtracts that one level, making it a one level drop. Dave, I know you read this-is it still true?

I've been told I can't play with my 50 AAA team any more since I moved to 65 M+ last year. The 15 year age difference made no difference. I was able to play with them when I was 60 Major. I, too, would like clarification. Thanks, Larry Lopez.

You are not suppose to be able to drop 2 classes in most associations. That is why I look at other teams rostters to see if they dont have any out of area players if they are not allowed. Only one class. M+ would be to major. If you have a rule everyone should follow or throw out the rules.

Thanks,
Donnie

Donnie-the way Dave explained it to me is that each age level also counts as one level.
These are the emails.

Hi Mark (and Rick) ... I have talked to Terry on this, and he confirmed my opinion that there is no problem with you playing for GSF 60-M+ and the Desperados 55-AAA SO LONG AS the Desperados have no more than two other 'out of rating' players. The GSF club carries a Ratings Index of 7 and the Desperados R/I is 6 (see enclosed Ratings Index file) ... Those are only one R/I apart, and therefore, this is permitted ... You are one of the three allowable 'out of rating' players and are OK on that basis ... If either of you have any questions, please e-reply or call at any time! ... Good luck! ... DAVE

Hey Dave

I had quite a debate with Rick in Phoenix about this rule. He felt I could not play 55AAA after playing 60 M+. I told him about this email. I need to see if I have his email somewhere, but I told him I would let you know he was unsure of this. By the way-that wasn't SSUSA, it was SCSSA we played. Am I committed to that course now? We haven't finalized everything with GSF yet, although it looks like it is going to happen.
I got to meet Kennard, and saw George again. Also meeting Mike Adair, Steve Imlay, and the rest of the guys was pretty great. I think it would be huge fun.

Best to Fran.

Webbie ... After Hemet, where you will play 60-M+, that 2012 'history' will be with you (through the 2013 season) ... A 60-Major+ history is equivalent to a 55-Major ... What that means is you will be one of the three allowable 'out of rating' players on the Desperados roster ... If there are no more than two other players on that roster with either 55-Major OR 60-Major+ history, you'll be fine as a teram at 55-AAA ... If there are more than three, the Desperados will have to 'cut' down to no more than three OR play 55-Major, and that would be their call ... Same offer as before: If John wants to talk about this, please have him give me a buzz anytime ... Best regards ... DAVE
