Cheers. Seems interesting and a promotion model that Steve Lansdown would seem to support based on his interview on that BBC podcast a number of weeks ago - so not pulling up the drawbridge but (a bit like they do in Rugby League I think) having certain criteria that teams from below the Premiership would need to to meet in order to be considered for promotion.

What is particularly interesting here, and will be key, is that it appears all of the championship clubs are therefore in favour of no automatic promotion relegation to the Premiership.

no doubt as part of any discussions there will be a relaxation of the part-time bit so that academy and other players from Premiership clubs can play in the championship. Despite the financial problems the Premiership clubs are experiencing I think they would be happy to put their hands in their pockets to help out with a proposal like this.
