I think drubbings that may affect your promotion are very very common in the current structure. this is only a couple of weeks in.
please confirm you think results like this are
1 good for the game
2 fun for anyone to play in
3 going to convince new teams to keep going out and getting hammered week in week out instead of in the occasional games that could possibly have ringers in it.
the current structure would be the right way to go if we had possible double to 3 times the number of first teams but we dont so before more small more established teams are forced out of existence prem 3 folds so new teams only come up against large clubs with multiple teams with better players in prem 2 close any door on any chance of promotion for new clubs.
does any one know what the record score is for a uk domestic match will it get beaten this year is a 50-0 possible.
1) Did drubbings not happen under Saint League Structure of Old (may they rest in peace)? I for one can remember plenty of times my team either handed out or received a drubbing
2) Stop using the Sheffield Uni Vs Stockport score as an example of the new structure not working. They got promoted to the Prem under the old structure and have kept their spot in the top flight ever since. I don't see you mentioning Heaton Mersey 3 -17 Stockport. Stockport are class above and their dominance is freaky. If anything, the old structure made it harder to relegate teams from Prem 1 and meant that poor teams got to fight on another year!
