Re: Bandits getting booted from EHF!

anon
Why not have the 7 or 8 automatic spots for the original organizations that have consistently put together good teams year after year and leave the other 2 or 3 spots open to have teams play in. Bandits, Top Gun and/or Falcons don't need to be banished just need to earn their spot against top tier 1 teams. The E9 really has that aspect figured out perfectly and EHF should follow suit.


sorry, but aren't the founder 6 of the E9 guaranteed a spot in the E9?

Re: Bandits getting booted from EHF!

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.

Not a dog in the fight, but why not just have top 4 finishers guaranteed a spot and the rest battle it out for the remaining?

I don't understand the concept of the founding org getting automatic entries. That is accommodating the problem orgs instead of pushing them to fix their issues.
