09:48 AM ET 09.11 | Paul Casey expects the European Tour to consider changes to its Ryder Cup qualifying system again in its fall meetings. Casey was controversially left off the European squad after he failed to qualify on points. Though he's among the top 10 players in the world rankings (No. 9), he wasn't among Colin Montgomerie's three captain's picks. Casey also happens to be among 15 players on the European Tour Tournament Committee.

A controversial exclusion? Not unexpected in a sport with a history of discrimination.

Looks like clear evidence of casism to me.

Monty doesnt like Casey= Casey not playing, plus the fact that your form has been scratchy to say the least Mr Casey.

The Euros are in a tough position. Most of the best players now play in the US making it harder to auto qualify for the Ryder Cup. If they reduce the number of qualifiers from the Euro tour they lessen the tour's importance.

The Americans must be pretty happy that Casey and Rose aren't playing while Ross Fisher and Peter Hansen are. Heck, I'd even take Bernhard Langer over one of the Molinari bros the way he's been dominating the Senior tour.
