the reason chamionship winners only get 25k to champ 1's 50k is that Fev now have the chance to win more money in the play offs where crusaders are automatically promoted and don't enter the play offs

Explain please Griff

 

Frank - just look around.  More sports have play-offs than a straight league championship these days.

 

How about the Superbowl ?  One of the biggest TV events on the planet.

Surprised how many people haven't spotted this.  Third time I've seen this explained in the past month.

Basketball, ice hockey too.

 

There's pretty much only soccer and cricket sticking with tradition these days.

So in that case Crusaders are Champions in their division? But Fev aren't allowed to call themselves Champions. Is that discrimination?

The Equalities Commission may be able to help. ;)

 

Could always get relegated and play in Div 3 if you prefer the rules. :laugh:

Just on the Superbowl, World Series etc line, these sports have playoffs as the teams play different schedules, in a balanced schedule where every team plays each other the same number of times, there is, in my opinion, no need for playoffs.

At $uperleague level, it helps pay the bills.  You can't say it's been anything but a huge financial success.  Below that, I'm not convinced.  Top four, I could cope with and there'd be a reasonable financial outcome.  But I've serious doubts about the profitability of the earlier play-off games, often played on Thursday and Friday nights in front of small crowds.
