RE: CAA tourney format changing, new TV deal
I think the early rounds should be on home teams' floors and just do a Saturday/Sunday semi and finals at the neutral location. This announcement is a bad direction for the conference in my opinion. Also not good that there was no mention of a deal with ESPN to get on ESPN3 for regular season games.

Agreed.

I'm fine with the CAA Tournament moving every 3 years or so, to appease different parts of the conference. Scrapping the system of neutral court makes no sense.

I'm ok with that too. That said, the day shifts are ridiculous

I disagree

Nothing says crappy conference like 1000 people or less in a 14K seat arena, which is what may happen.

That is why our conference should have semi finals on Saturday and the finals on Sunday. Both should be at the same neutral location. Thursday and Friday games can be played at the higher seeds home courts. Cuts travel costs for teams and fans, potentially, but still keep the important part of the tournament at a neutral place on the weekend when you will have the best ability to travel

I have to say that this a great idea, and is an idea which is most likely to draw the highest overall tourney attendance.

That is what the Horizon does, except the #1 seeds gets to host the semis and finals. I think the CAA should look at that idea especially if they are going to be playing their major games on off nights, like the Horizon.
