Since you've been around a long time and know the ups and downs of organizations and teams over the years, what is your opinion of how the E9 runs their elite division and allows BHL teams to play-in? Regardless of what you think of E9 teams vs EHF teams, I think their play-in system has been run perfectly.
I asked what your opinion was, given all your experience. I don't care if it was 1 years, 2 years or 10 years. How do you think it is going with the E9 play in system?
I still don't understand why the two leagues E9 and EHF don't figure out a way to put the top teams on the schedule each year. Doesn't hurt the organizations and can only attract more players who are "elite". Seems like such an oversight.
Yes, but E9 allows 3-4 teams to play-into the Elite division instead of a closed division of 10 teams. So maybe the EHF elite needs a 12 team division, if you insist the 10 founding teams don't have to earn their keep regardless of performance. That would allow 2 more teams to play in and most likely be at least middle of the pack as they are in the E9 and less games against the bottom feeders.
