Split League
« on: October 29, 2014, 02:04:05 PM »
Does anyone thing that the TML would be better off being split at Xmas into bottom half and top halfs? It's got a few pros and cons to out but it's just a idea.

Michael - Just to be clear what league (TML) are you referring to?

I think the difficulty with splitting the TVSL is that there are 15 teams and it would be difficult to arrange fixtures against all teams before Xmas - and you can only play once.  In fact it would probably be impossible unless the fixtures were organised centrally and that probably wouldn't suit clubs.  If you don't do that some sides would have an imbalance of results and some sides would be disadvantaged.  Also the teams that are likely to be bottom of the league at Xmas are those that cannot get a team out for all fixtures.  Putting them altogether is only going to make the situation worse

So far I can only see cons.  What are the pros?
