Meaningless evaluation

Dear sir:
I totally disagree with Ron Lindner’s evaluation on the top money winners in the 10 years of the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship, where the top prizes varied from the inaugural 47-team event to the now field of 130 teams.
Without any calculation, I would say Jim and Bill Lindner are at the top of the list, with the last two years winning the event for the total sum of $75,000.
By comparison, the Lindsay brothers, Dave and Norm, who won the inaugural title as well as the third year of the FFCBC, pocketed only a third of that amount ($25,000).
Having the total cash winners in the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship does not give a true value of the best anglers, but a total point system would be more practical.
For example, winning the event would be worth 10 points, runner-up nine points, third eight points, fourth seven points, and so on down to one point for 10th place.
Both the Lindsays and Lindners are tied with two wins apiece as a team, with Norm Lindsay holding top spot as an individual (winning the event three times altogether).
I also cannot understand the title of last week’s article, “Ron Lindner vowing revenge.” For what reason? The last two big winners were his sons—and carrying on the Lindner name for top honours in the field of bass fishing tournaments.
I would say other anglers are at a disadvantage competing against a family of experts, wouldn’t you say?
