Unfortunately I don't think they had any choice.
We all know what happened with the money supply after the collapse of ITV Digital & now from reports I have read the BBC/ITV/SKY companies/consortiums intend paying a lot less for football rights next season. It looks like the bubble may have well & truly burst.

I think they did have a choice Mike, the prize money from the third round onwards has not been cut.

Surely they could have made a smaller across the board cut rather than let the whole burden fall on the smaller clubs.

Totally agree with you there Dave.
I suppose they have to look after the poor! hard done by Premier League teams who have to pay their players a little! extra as they don't have part time jobs to top up their football salaries like our players have to.

Nope!

After the conference made all the fuss about how important it was that we should move to 24 teams in the Conference and 24 teams in the two feeders, it decided not to push ahead for that and there will be 22 teams.

Three teams will be relegated this season into the two new divisions, but we won't be one of them.

I think you'll find that the official ruling was that....
" Three teams will be relegated this season into the two new divisions, but Stevenage will not be one of them. If Stevenage finish in the bottom three then either the team in nineteenth will be relegated in their place or one of the promoted teams will not be accepted due to state of ground/financial irregularities.

Also more money should be given to the lower clubs who need it. If they win give them a bigger share so they don't end up going bankrupt

Didnt get to that game, but i think i would agree with what the commentator said that night...that it was a blessing in disguise because it meant we could concentrate solely on the league.

You can assume it Carjam <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> but it aint happening!

Are you sitting comfortably, then I'll begin......

There will be three teams relegated to the 2 feeder divisions to be replaced by 3 teams from those feeders. The 2 champions will be promoted as of right.

The teams in 2nd to 5th Place in each of the two feeders will take part in a play-off with the winner of these play-offs playing each other for the third spot.

Now aren't you glad you asked?
