Dutch first division breaks from tradition

The Eredivisie, as it’s called in The Netherlands, is the Dutch first league. Next season it will begin a new chapter as it gets set to decide the championship using a playoff.

The playoff will not only crown a league champion, but will also decide who plays in European competitions and even who is relegated.

The details are more complicated than a sweepstakes entry so I wont bother, but what I find odd about this idea is that the same number of ‘regular season’ games are played leading up to it and this new system is slated to be part of a pay-tv scheme.

While its novel that clubs which would normally be relegated have a chance to survive, loading up the schedule and going pay per view might just undo the whole thing thru greed and tired players.
