"The Championship"

Am I the only one enraged by this pointless re-branding of the First Division (and the lower league Divisions as well, who now 'move up a place' :rolleyes: ).

As if it weren't stupid enough having to speak of "the old First Division" when speaking of what is now known as the Premiershit... in a few years from now we're going to have to make a distinction between "the old old First Division" (Premiershit) and "the not so old First Division" (now Championshit).

What a load of utter fucking wank!!! :mad:
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    It's what happens when you let an ex-Tory minister and a load of gaylord advertising executives run English football.

    Get rid of the Premiershit, have Divisions One to Four, and get rid of all this nonsense. At least the game would be fairer then.

    I only found this out when i was looking for Division 1 and got confused when I saw division 2 teams. It does seem silly to me. So the third division down is Division 1 now :yeees:

    Try explaining all this to a ten year old who doesn't even remember there being a Div 4...

    Rumour has it that Div1 (new) is going to be renamed "La Liga" and Div 2 (new) will be called "Serie A"... :)

    Everyone's going 'up' then. Hooray!

    Presently we're in the ''Ryman League Division One ''. Time to drop the first two words then? :D

    I fucking hate it! Apparently, according to the blurb, the Football League is "reclaiming" The Championship. I bet the Premier League are shitting themselves.

    Being a foreigner and all, could someone explain to me in a few words the history of the Premiership ? I know it was created in the early nineties. But why did it come to be? Was it some plot from rich clubs to create an alternative league with their own TV rights or something?

    Er... yes that's pretty much what happened.

    The top 20-odd clubs were fed up with giving money to the lower leagues and thought it would be better to share the pot with 19 other clubs rather than 72.

    Basically.

    I think there was a bit of a power struggle with the League too though...
