8 teams per league level

I like the idea of having 8 teams in each league level rather than 12. Play every team on your level each session. Best 2 go up and worst 2 go down.

Why, have there been times when you thought you could have moved up but because of a bad draw it didn't work out quite right?

It makes sense to play all of the players in your level. And there would be more movement after each session. I don't see a negative to 8 players per level.

Makes pretty good sense I guess. And it would result in pretty much the same number of matches: 7 matches per session for 21 matches in the year versus the 20 that are played now.

I agree with dan. It is not fair that your strength of schedule is random, and anyone can get a sub anytime. Whats next? Flip a coin to see who wins? You should play every team in your level and play the actual team. In case of bad weather, travel, illness you should reschedule. U can get a sub for thursday but it shouldn't count. Teams should be rewarded for good play not for a lucky schedule or finding a ringer sub.
