Impact of Nex League on USA Ultimate

With the recent announcement of NexGen confirming all 18 of the invited club teams to its Nex league, this leaves USAU's Triple Crown Tour, well, with still plenty of  teams to play in its new club structure in 2013. 

DISCLAIMER: It's NOT official that Nex-committed teams are leaving USA Ultimate.

So,  take away 18 teams from the 198 total = 180 USAU TCT remaining men's teams. (NOTE, 1 team from the Top-16 was not invited to the Nex League.) If teams were to completely jump from USAU, that would be a loss of only 9% - albeit the corps d'elite - but there are plenty of fish in the Ultimate Club scene.
