The only stigma I attached to Sportsman is the fact that at many contests, Sporty's are the sacrificial category. I fly the same distance to the contest, I pay the same fees (sometimes $10 less) yet often the Sporty flights are flown after the "real" categories have flown. I think your proposal to add an unknown to Sportsman and to emphasize the importance of ALL categories getting equal access to flight time would help the grass roots nature of the sport.
