IC2011 - Divisions
Authored by: Aaron Richard on Tuesday, April 27 2010 @ 04:12 pm ACST

Hi Phil,

I can see your line of thinking, but I still vote for a smaller first division. The standard gap will be just too big from 1st to 16th, people aren't going to want that after seeing games like NZ vs India at the 2008 cup.

But there is of course the issue of where you draw the line between first and second division teams. Some such as Sweden/Canada/Samoa could be the ones on the cusp, and might be aggrieved at being put in division 2.

It was interesting to note at the 2008 cup though, from memory a fair number of teams requested to be in division 2, before the AFL ended up combined it all into one.

The good news is that the AFL is looking for feedback on this, so let's keep the discussion going.
