I didn't mean it in a derogatory way spud.All I meant was that the league leaders shield doesn't get you promoted which is what we are ALL gagging for.The team finishing top of the division SHOULD go up automatically. It works like that in the majority of sports.But I agree it will be a boost in terms of confidence for the boys in the playoffs. But I still think coming top should be automatic promotion. (Just my opinion).
Finishing top and being promoted is only right if all teams have an even fixture list. As from the offset it was not even then they could not send the winners up. If Oldham beat Swinton next week then I will accept they were the best and deserving of promotion. Until then we still don't know who the best team is.
