Is there anything not on your list though? :lol:
I’ve seen the odd suggestion, it’s usually the good ones that aren’t on my list :lol:

I’ll send Crowfan my updated list later, haven’t added as many recently.

2 up 4 down would only work if we had a 14 league team and a season lasted twice as long ( which I am a fan of)

Might help the Nats as well

As an alternative, has extending prize money down to 6th been considered. Sometimes you get stuck where you're not bad enough to get relegated but not good enough to go up but you receive no prize money so you effectively stagnate. I agree playoffs would be cool

Playoffs sound ridiculous to me when league structure dictates that only one team promotes. Big waste of 14 weeks just to throw it all away in one.

I wouldn't be wanting the league winner to have to win a playoff match to promote.

But perhaps some sort of playoff could work across divisions. (E.g. 6th in Div 1 vs the best 2nd from Div 2, winner goes into Div 1).

I think the biggest hurdle around playoffs is whether we want to extend the season cycle into a 16th week as I can't see how it gets implemented in the current format.

Another potential small change which can get more teams promoting is you could make it so that 2nd placed sides are ranked above the 7th/8th ranked sides from the division above when the bot flush is applied.

Must be a good idea if we both thought of it individually :think

I think an option could certainly be one where they are at least ranked above 8th.
