Remembering NexGen League

With cancellation of the proposed NexGen League for 2013, let's honor the ingenuity of its outspoken leader - Kevin Minderhout.

Kevin on the NexGen League:
"This proposal comes out of my dissatisfaction with the [Triple Crown Tour] and "pro" models and my belief that ultimate does not need to nor should strive to imitate today's model of professional sport. We need true innovation that upholds the values of the community, meets the needs of players, meets the needs of fans and allows ultimate to evolve and grow without finding itself beholden to sponsors or profit as its driving motive." ...

"What follows is a proposal for the formation of an 18-team elite open ultimate League founded on the principals of cooperation, revenue sharing and creating a kick ass product."

And, this one:
"I do what I do because I'm passionate about increasing access to elite ultimate."
