I don't know why, but every year when I check score reporter to see Regionals/Nationals results, I click on a team's hyperlink to see their roster...and every year I find nothing (or rosters from several years ago, or rosters where everyone has funny nicknames from several years ago).

I know that roster names must be submitted to the UPAU well in advance of these tournaments, so why can't we get the names on score reporter???

I think I have heard the reason for this is that score reporter is not really run by the UPAU, but UPAU points to score reporter "to follow the action" on its website, so either give them the info to put in the roster boxes, or run a score site yourself that has the info.

Seems kind of pointless to post now after waiting 15 years, but who knows maybe it will help get it done by next year.

source of great frustration for me, as well. as i understand it, it's up to teams to update their own rosters online. a) update your rosters so fans can follow the action (watched revolver vs. doublewide last week; tried to check jersey numbers on score reporter and revolver's website; no dice either place. totally annoying); b) update your scores during tournaments. alternatively, have a tournament organizer keep track and update as frequently as possible. c) please don't whine to me that teams have better things to do; of course they do. still, it'd be nice to throw the fans a bone.

so, USAU points to score reporter to "follow the action" but leaves it up to the teams to keep the rosters and scores up to date and charges them money to do it? man, what a racket. you guys are sitting around complaining about USAU this and USAU that, but those guys are fucking geniuses. they are collecting money from thousands upon thousands of members in dues, then letting the members pay their own way through the entire season, report their own games, update the site that USAU points to for action following then, 2 times, no sorry, now 4 times a year, they step up and run an event for about 1% of their members that they still charge each player to attend. what is the main expense of the USAU? is it the ESPN contract. a contract that is designed to expose the sport to more people to bring in more members ($$cha-ching$$) and maybe even some sponsorship dollars$$$kaching$$$"

somewhere there's a bunch of fortune 500 CEO's sitting around pointing at them saying, how do we make money like that?

i mean, don't get me wrong, . . . ah fuck it. if you think i'm wrong, show me. show us all.
