    Expansion IS IT TIME FOR TWO DIVISIONS ??

    Alright mate, good post. Sorry, I live in Scotland and we call each other "mate" here, it's a custom, I'm not sure about in Australia. Please don't take offence.

    Solved The Peter Falconio Disappearance

    In my view the story or stories told by Joanne Lees are completely unbelievable on a number of fronts. I hold reasonable doubt Brad Murdoch is guilty and Peter may still be alive, depressed no doubt that Huddersfield Town no longer plays in the Premier League. My apologies for posting this...

    Whitten Oval set to be revived

    Pictures of Whitten Oval, taken January 2011. I guess I found that officious looking sign somewhat humorous (yes they were simpler times).

    Whitten Oval set to be revived

    Some local support for the Dogs from a restaurant in Barkly Street - - picture dates back to January 2011 though.

    Bohemians (small club) beat Slavia Prague (massive club) 1-0 only last year. How many VFL clubs won flags from the mid-1960s through to the mid-1980s? Six I believe (and five if you start after 1966): Carlton, St Kilda, Richmond, Essendon, North Melbourne, Hawthorn (no pro-rel to blame there)...

    Czech Premier League, 2019-20: That's pretty balanced and even I would say. Ten points separated third from tenth. Bottom club won five games (some years in the 1980s St Kilda or Melbourne would have died to have achieved five wins, same with the Suns in their first few years)...

    I think an ambitious amateur club would much prefer to be in A-grade rather than B-grade. In soccer you have had one club recently, Gwelup Croatia, get promoted from the amateurs up through about six tiers to the WA Premier League.

    Yes, I used to enjoy WA premier-league soccer (supporting Perth Italia) as the games were much more enjoyable to watch than the A-League. It seems that the spectacle improves, up to a certain point, as quality improves but beyond that the spectacle deceases with quality. You couldn't beat the...

    I think the OP was describing a two-division system with promotion and relegation. But conferences are obviously another possibility.

    The old VFA had promotion and relegation, so do the amateur footy leagues, at least they do in Western Australia.

    Yes, in one way, it is because they always lose more games than they win. But at least they feel they are 'up there" in the big league with more media coverage, TV live games occasionally, and long match reports in the newspaper.

    Sportspeople pretending their COVID championship is real. (warning: embarrassing photos inside)

    There is justice - Everton now top of the league and Liverpool let in six in one match.

    Hamilton Accies has been in the Scottish top league for a number of years now despite having home crowds of around 1,000 to 2,000 and being miniscule in every material respect. Every year people predict them to go down but they escape the trapdoor right at the death.

    Then they would be motivated to play brilliant football to get back up into the top division. it is happening right now around the world in thousands of leagues.

    So having a pyramid system, like in European soccer, s crazy but having a cartel franchise model like North American sport is not? You must be Dennis Cometti.
