Maybe it's just me. But it sure seems like there have been an awful lot of threads with folks wanting to "Change the game".
I know some change is good. But, not all change is. When folks start talking about change to make things "fair"... Red flags go up for me.
Field trials in particular have always been tough. It's not a sport where you get a ribbon for participating. There is no pat on the back after a tough trial unless it's your spouse or training partner.
There are other dog games that are more "user friendly", but they have their issues too. Seen the entry problem threads regarding HTs?
There is no perfect game. Enjoy it for what it is... If one doesn't like the game, instead of changing it, maybe find a new game?
