(Times Live)   First, take the old relegation analogy of the Kansas City Royals being made to play in AAA. Now imagine it's the Yankees. Now imagine that the government stepped in and said that AAA now counted as the majors too   (timeslive.co.za) divider line 16

I don't give a damn about River Plate or soccer in Argentina, but that's some grade A crap right there.

You know, going to a River Plate-Boca Juniors superclasico has always been on the top of my list of things to do before I die, but this is just compeltely insane.

FIFA will be so hopping mad at the government's interference that they'll probably ban Nigeria again

Two divisions of 19 with the top 5 from each proceeding to a playoff? WTF Argentina? Even those scum River supporters won't want this surely? River would have been right back up anyway. Madness.

Would this be a bad time to mention that Argentine football fans are a bunch of whiny coonts?

Don't cry for them.

But, yeah, Subby has it about right if the promotion/relegation happened here in the States.

I enjoyed seeing the Maggies drop a couple years back and why it'll probably be good for the Hammers this. Not to spite the two sides, but it's a needed wake-up call to management/ownership when they go from hosting Man U in front of a packed house to Dag & Red in front of--well, I'm not sure. It only seems to have happened to Leeds.

Now imagine that the headline made any sense or had any relevance.

Color me shocked.

The government didn't step in, subby. The AFA did

I must be in the wrong tab, I totally thought this was going to be about the air travel industry.

I would love to see relegation happen in baseball, Single A all the way up through Majors. Minor league ball is awesome and would be even more so if teams had a hope of moving up or a genuine fear of moving down.

Problem is you've got affiliations directly to the majors seven levels down. Internationally, when there's a situation where you have a big club and an affiliated little club, the little club is required to remain at least a certain amount of tiers below the big club. If the little club wins promotion, the promotion is cancelled. If the big club is relegated too close to the level of the little club, the little club is automatically relegated as well.

So even then, you wouldn't see any changes. None of the AAA clubs could ever be promoted to match the level of their parent major league club.

Not a problem, as long as the Yankee chicks in the sidebar seats whip off their tops.

Subby had me confused, as well. When I saw the word "Argentine" in the next tab over, I thought to myself, "ohhhh, this is about River Plate getting relegated."
