It's different in as much as it is, in effect, a franchise system. The fifteen founder clubs would be ringfenced into the competition making the issue of promotion and relegation a farce. The five clubs selected to come in every season "on merit" would be guaranteed to be relegated to make way for the next five "on merit" selections the following season.
To be honest, I never got that far when I was reading the article about this! Thanks Jenny. If some clubs are always guaranteed a place, then there is no competition, which would mean no impetus for them to improve. I say let them get on with it and die a slow death.
Anyway,the BBC is saying Chelsea has just pulled out, so it looks like this won't happen now anyway.
Won't bother me I have very little interest in football anyway.
Me neither. But it seems to be on the news, so I thought I should mention it (as no one else has...).
