“We’re the only real sport without a governing body. I’d love to tell somebody all my issues with our sport, but I don’t even know who to go to,” Repole said.

“I just know the old guard is running the sport, and the old guard doesn’t want to change. It’s almost like we’re football players still wearing leather helmets.”
