Players moving form Major
I was wondering if a player can move from 60 Major to 60 AA the next year. He says he doens't play very much and would like to move to another team.

Current standard is you can only move down one rating level from one team to another.

So a AAA may move to AA; a major may move to AAA..a major can not move to AA.

You didn't ask but I don't even know what the time limit (years) is before a Major could move down to AA.

If you look at the SSUSA 2013-14 rules, section 14.1, D-3 you will find "A AA team roster shall not have more than three players with a team affiliation rating history during the two previous tournament seasons greater than AA."
In paragraph E it states "The SSUSA Home Office may grant an exception to the maximum number of “out of rating” players in the case of a team that will not, in the sole judgment of SSUSA, have an unfair competitive advantage solely by exceeding the maximum. Such teams may not have an average run differential in the SSUSA Ratings Scores database that exceeds +2.50 runs per game"

There are many teams that don't abide by this rule. Maybe Staff can tell us if they police this rule of if another team has to protest a team.
