Give the players what they want. They are the ones keeping the sport alive. There will always be a minority that says "X would make this better" or "Y in this league is stupid" but not everyone can be made 100% happy.
Honestly I really don't understand why anyone on the PSP side of things want a merger in the first place, especially if its with the NPPL which has obviously be dwindling in attendance over the years and has filled for bankruptcy a mere 3 years ago. Just doesn't make good business sense to me.
