A format like the 92WC would be ideal for me.
- 2 pools of 7, quarters, semis, final = 49 games (most of them formalities)
- 1 pool of 10, no quarters, semis, finals = 48 games (hardly any formalities)
Still, too long but better than the current format.
Oh, and they'll have to wear 92WC throwback style uniforms.
