Discussion: How did SSUSA decide which Division had teams shorted to four gg?

This is an interesting discussion and I concur with many, Here is my issue, We get bumped to Major+ after a unexpected good run last year, We contact head office and they tell us we need to play 4 tournaments and then we can file a reclassification request,
1 Major+ tourney on the east coast and the balance are AAA or maybe a couple major teams, We have no option to play 4 so we ride the wave and qualifiy to spend a ton of dough to fly to Vegas only to play 4 games, 3 of which were 5 innings due to the time limits which they have zero controls in place to monitor,This limits at bats and ability to possibly win a game in an extra inning or two,
How about this if there is a time limit then pinch runners need to be the base coach, there is a time limit to take the field between innings and if the other team decides to BS and play toss, figure out who is pinch running and generally play the clock they should lose an out in the upcoming inning.

Speed it up, put a few simple measures in place to allow for 7 innings and get the teams the 5GG they pay for, or combine the Major+ with Majors , go to 7 Hrs and after that its an out, May make for a little more fun.
