    5 Divisions

    I know there has been talk about the 5 divisions lately and how some people don't like them, but i must say that the benefits of the 5 divisions have really shown in the last couple of weeks...

    Without giving to much away and from what i have seen so far 3 Divisions in 4d are still very much up for grabs, and also the relegation battles seem as strong as ever...

    I just think for pure excitement and closeness the 5 divisions have proven to be a very very big hit...

    There were suggestions a few weeks back we should change it to 2 or 3 divisions...

    Anyone complaining about the 5 divisions of 6 is stupid IMO - with 30 teams the only other real option is 3 divisions of 10 (which would take longer and mean half the teams have nothing to play for from half way through the season)

    I think the person who suggested the 5 of 6 idea deserves some serious kudos!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I must say Paid that off the top of my head we would seriously struggle to try and find 10 more teams, espically after this years Academy series where all the left over players were basically picked out.

    It would need to become a stage of complete random sides (Like ACT)

    However I really can't see Blewy expanding at this stage, however I maybe wrong.

    I can't believe Rich went to the trouble of giving a serious answer to that :P

    Well, there's all the English Minor Counties
