In Topic: League 1 on tv?

^ no - and whilst Sky have committed to the summer bash and middle 8 coverage in their October press release they said they would be showing 'selected' live games from the Championship season.

I don't think this will be one a week, but am hoping that they will at least pick out presumed attractive fixtures during the season.

To dismiss altogether and then show six games all at once would be a tough ask for the casual viewer to show an interest without any prior knowledge of context/the teams and competition.

In Topic: The League 1 Cup - first round

He's got a point:
"In addition, a League 1 Cup competition will be reintroduced in 2015 consisting of 16 teams – the 14 League 1 clubs plus the 2014 National Conference League Grand Final winners and the 2014 RFL Conference Challenge Cup winners. The competition will be a straight knockout with the early rounds played at the start of the season. The first round will be an open draw grouped by geography with a straight open draw thereafter."

So have the draw organisers botched it up at the first attempt or are we missing something?

Thank goodness for that. I am mega relieved.

Common sense has prevailed!

Can't express how glad I am they've made this decision.

Win or lose = higher stakes more dramatic close contests and easier to understand and believe in for new fans.
