Is it rumor or is it the truth or some of the truth that is the question.

Maybe A Fan does not know because they have not done anything for him.

It is only a small mind in your humble opinion.

Spoken like a member of the ASA staff. What do you do? Do you host and find

he/she does not like what ASA is doing. Neither do I. As far as ASA staff
members making money I wonder. The UIC's at state tournaments are paid to be
