sorry your Q dreams got cut!
Here is my take on the Q. The EHF should have two bids. Each bid is a collective All Star team of the best players from the EHF. This would accomplish two things first a very good player on a bottom team has a chance to play in this tourney and does not feel he has to leave his team in the Q year to play for a contender. Secondly, it would make the teams more competitive with greater depth in this Tournament. It will probably never happen because it makes to much sense.
E9 Allstar team would destroy everyone at the Q!
