You don't play PSP events to impress people. You play it for love of the game, the unique experience that can only be had here, and the chance to grind it out with the best teams this country has to offer. I don't know about you, but I have yet to see any real team walking around the next event with medals from the last one hanging around their necks. They earn respect on the field by winning and the only thing you need to see is the team name on the front of that jersey. Fight your way to the top of this
page and you won't need a belt.
If you want to talk about practical worthwhile prizes, take the top teams of lower divisions at the end of the season and hook them up with a real sponsorship if they don't have one already. Give them a reason to really commit and grow our league.
