Just noticed we have two bots in T20 this season. Might start focusing on the cup this season. Though if we had two real sides of some note. I would just throw out the 2nd XI in the cup, as I rather stay up in D1 in both formats then go all out in the cup. And yes Scaly we don't have the depth you guys do to go all out in all three formats.

The thing with leagues is you get experience and attendance money regardless. With the cup you either get those or you don't. If you keep getting to the later stages then you'll find in a few seasons your squad will have extra levels of experience than people who get KO'ed early.
Don't you gain more experience and crowds being in the higher leagues, then lower leagues. Would it be worth it to drop levels or stay in low Twenty20 league to gain more experience in the Cup. Also for an average side like mine you would need a lot of luck to get past the middle rounds, even if you went all out. Will try this season. But in normal situation can't see how potentially dropping in Twenty20 will help long term with experience and crowds. Though in all honestly never noticed a major increase in experience being in the higher leagues.
Cup runs seem to have a big affect on supporter morale as well, probably bigger than a single league.
I would like to start a CW FTP Championship III as a friendly competition on Thursdays. It would be a league and I am interested to find out how many would be interested! Please post your FTP Team Name if you are interested to participate!
