In Topic: Are we destroying the Championship?

24 March 2015 - 12:14 PM

Last season in Championship One the home matches with the expansion clubs didnt bring many away supporters but the new League One Structure allows for the return of three strong local derby's for us Rochdale, Swinton and NW Crusaders, that brings in much needed revenue. The cost of travelling to expansion teams means clubs like ours lose money on away matches and we don't make that much from away supporters, so the new league structure is a good thing for us but I think the same clubs with bounce between the difference divisions and without investment most League One clubs will stay in that division.

In Topic: Promotion and relegation or something completely different ?

  I hated the idea of the new league structure at first but I think it is quite ingenious


It is very simply to follow


Three leagues, 2 of 12 and 1 of 14, the 2 of 12 play 23 games before becoming 3 leagues 8 and the 1 of 14 remains the same. 1 league of 8 stays the same, 1 league of 8 as 4 promotion places with the final placed decided with 2 teams playing for a million dollars or something, one goes into the 1st league of 12 and the loser joins the 2rd league of 12, the 3rd league of 8 as 2 relegation places to the league 1 of 14. The 1 of 14 with see 2 promoted not to 3rd league of 8 but back to the 2rd league of 12. The play offs couldn’t be simpler, in the 1st league of 8, 1 plays 4 and 2 plays 3, in the 2nd league of 8 1, 2, 3 all go to the 1st league of 12 and 4 plays 5, the winner goes to the 1st league of 12 and the loser returns to the 2nd league of 12, the 3rd league of 8 1 plays 4 and 2 plays 3 winners of both games play for a Champion shield. In the league of 14 1st plays 2nd and the winner goes into the 2nd league of 12, the loser plays 5th and 3rd plays 4th, the winners join 1 in the 2nd league of 12, the following season we start again with 2 12’s and a 14.


Got it, Good!
