I, personally, dislike this idea. The Sponsor game is there for a reason....for players to do a Sponsor Offer worth 25 FreeDs or more for credit to get ticket to the 10K. It would be like giving every premium member a ticket to the 5K, 20K, 30K, etc. without having to "work" for it. Every game has it's stipulations and it's not fair to those of us who do/have done the offers faithfully for years. For those who have trouble with the offers, maybe a game can be set up like the 5k qual, etc and the winner gets a ticket to the 10k. The 4+ hours of game time is a bit much, especially with the game starting an hour later due to DST.
