I'm fairly certain there is zero chance of this... even if each team was allowed to bring more than 1 or 2 people. The poise with which all of the teams on Einstein handled the situation was exactly the definition of GP. By any of our standards, no one would have been surprised if one of the teams drivers or coaches threw up their hands in frustration or stomped around the edge of the field. Yet by everything I saw (we had direct view of the red side of the field), everyone remained calm and cool, and I even watched video showing the losing teams clapping with smiling faces. How they pulled that off is beyond me, but true evidence that they are Einstein caliber teams. I don't think any of those teams will be out to change our minds, and I think all of them have earnest interest in helping us all solve the issues and end up with a system that REALLY works so we can all play at our fullest potentials next year.
