Doesn't the way handicaps are calculated get changed next year?

If these new rules are so insignificant as you all seem to be arguing, then you should have no problem letting your next match opponent play by the new rules while you play by the old. Right? It's plain old logic you see. Transitive property and shit. Oh, so you would have a problem with this scenario? Not equitable you say? Well, I agree.
