Words like ‘majority’ and ‘minority’ are actually quite meaningless if not quantified. Could I suggest a rather radical approach?
The database requires a valid e-mail address and an association for each participant. Surely it is not beyond the wit of the MT to settle the HUMPs issue by using a mailshot to the participants from the England Association? A returning officer from another association eg GM could ensure fair play and perhaps a time limit should be set for returns.
Needless to say I’m in favour of adding HUMPs as I was the first to suggest it.
Before someone tells me it’s up to James, I say only in the first instance and maybe he would also like a firm evidence base.
