What was not mentioned in these articles was the fact they tied to the proposal keeping the boys season and state tournament first and the girls season and tournament second. Personally, I believe having the girls after the boys is going to destroy the girl's attendance during the season and tournaments. So if I was on the fence, I would have voted no as well. Might explain some of the schools voting no. If they have had this much time to put together a proposal and that was the best they could do, then I would agree to scrap it because they are unable to use any common sense in their approach.

That's interesting. It would be nice to know if prior to drafting this proposal, they sent out questionnaires to the voting schools asking:
1. Would you support a 3-class system for a trial period of 2 years.
2. Would you support not having any coops for a trial period of 2 years.
3. Would you support having the boys season/tournament 1st and the girls season/tournament 2nd for a trial period of 2 years.
All 3 items are controversial on their own as witnessed on this site. Roll them all up into one package and I am surprised it got as many votes as it did.
Also, when you throw in the legal ramifications of using a weighted system for some schools, this proposal had very little chance of passing.
