Bradfords joint chairman Mark Lawn has branded the Football Leagues proposals to introduce a fifth division to the competition as ridiculous. The League wants to create four divisions of 20 teams below the Premier League in time for the 2019-20 season, increasing the number of professional clubs in England from 92 to 100, but Lawn is vehemently opposed to the plan.Weve had this structure for years because it has suited the majority of clubs, so why change it? Lawn told Press Association Sport. Why? What they dont understand is that currently we have 23 home games. We need the crowds. We dont get the money Championship clubs get.Losing four home games means we lose four incomes. Its not so bad for us but for teams like Accrington and York thats a lot of money. Its ridiculous.Lawn said he had not heard about the Leagues plans for a radical shake-up. They certainly havent come out and consulted with all the clubs because this is the first Ive heard about it, he added.If we were voting now Id be voting against it. The only reason I can think of is that, yet again, the Championship clubs want it.Peterboroughs director of football Barry Fry said his club had not been notified of the governing bodys intentions either.Im very surprised with all my contacts in the game that I didnt know about this already, he said. Until I see the proposals and how it affects the clubs I cant really comment.Accrington, as Lawn expected, are set to raise strong objections to the plan being implemented.Club owner Andrew Holt said he saw no merit in the Football Leagues strategy, and predicted it would be costly to Stanley.He said: I dont recognise it as a sensible plan. We want more games. Wed rather play 50 home games.We need revenue. We dont want to lose any games. I dont recognise it as having any sense.Our players will play as many games as we want. We pay them an annual salary; we want them to play games. We need the revenue.We certainly wouldnt want less games.Holt told Sky Sports News: Its got to hurt us if we lose any revenue. Im putting cash in to fill a black hole. If we have less matches and less revenue, Ill have to put more in, and Im not going to do that.If were going to play 20 times a year its hardly worth having a stadium. I cant see any sense or any logic in the proposals.Its just not going to get our support. I need them coming up with better ideas where we can get more games on and generate more revenue for our clubs. These bottom clubs dont have a lot of revenue and we need to build it, not reduce it.Rotherham chairman Tony Stewart does not think the proposals will affect his club.Its a long time in football until 2018, the proposals dont worry me, he said. Ive built a stadium and invested a lot of money in order to enjoy the fruits of higher-tier football.If I had not had that ambition I wouldnt have spent over £30million. As far as Im concerned it doesnt bother me.What I will say is there is a big gulf between the Championship and the Premier League, a great divide, and the money that is shared out is disproportionate.The problem now is foreign investors coming in and taking a gamble. Theyre mortgaging a lot of money to try and get in the Premier League and its turning into a bit of a casino.There is also a divide between the Championship and League One and Two and the gaps need filling in.Brentford chief executive Mark Devlin welcomed the discussion, saying: The Football League is to be absolutely applauded for coming up with an innovative and far-reaching approach and set of proposals.These proposals are a really good start for how we can tackle some of the problems Football League clubs are facing.He picked out fixture congestion, dips in attendances for midweek matches and player fatigue as issues facing teams.Im not saying all the proposals are workable and theyre bound to divide opinion but I look at them very positively, Devlin told Sky Sports News HQ.Devlin said any change to the current system must not adversely affect revenue streams, and expressed a preference for National League clubs joining the Football League rather than B teams from Premier League sides.Undoubtedly the Premier League may well be able to offer financial incentives to make that much more of an appealing proposition, but on a personal basis I would prefer to see National League teams, Devlin said.I think it would be much better if there are more teams serving their communities rather than B teams from Premier League sides.

Baltimore Ravens Jerseys Cheap . -- Whether Jeremy Hill deserves a prominent role in LSUs offence this early in the season is a matter for debate. (STATS) -- Despite an encouraging end to last season with the prospect of returning many veteran players this year, the Cornell football staff opened the offseason by posting a blank depth chart in the teams locker room.At Columbia, the coaching staff has been busy changing the approach of its players as much as making adjustments in the two-deep.Neither Ivy League program has enjoyed much recent success, but both began to see light on the horizon last season that perhaps this year they can slip through the door when nobodys looking.Not surprisingly on Tuesday, there was a far drop to last years two cellar-dwellers in the Ivy Leagues preseason poll, which was fronted by the three defending champions -- Harvard picked as the favorite with Penn second and Dartmouth third. Then it was Yale, Princeton and Brown before Columbia was picked seventh and Cornell eighth.Same ol, same ol in the Ancient Eight?Not necessarily.We think we will be much more competitive than weve been, said Columbia second-year coach Al Bagnoli, who previously won eight Ivy titles at Penn. We think were doing all the right things. We have kids who are buying in.Its just a matter of showing them, Cornell fourth-year coach David Archer said, that the difference on a Saturday afternoon isnt as big as they really think.Cornell and Columbia received a much-needed bump in publicity last week with their inclusion in the top 100 of a list ranking all-time college football programs. But when you factor in what-have-you-done-for-me-lately, your fathers Ivy League, even your older brothers, is not your great-grandfathers Ivy League.The two New York state rivals found a lot of their historical success before there even was an Ivy League. Columbias Ivy title in 1961 is the only one in program history, and the Lions havent had a winning season since 1996. Cornell has the second-fewest Ivy titles with three -- most recently in 1990 -- and the Big Red are seeking their first winning record since 2005.But being that its August, there is optimism. Maybe its not unfounded, either.Columbia (2-8, 1-6 Ivy) lost six times by eight points or less in Bagnolis first season in New York. Meanwhile, Cornell (1-9, 1-6) let three potential wins slip away, and after beating Columbia by a rather fitting 3-0 score, the Big Red were competitive in a season-ending loss at Penn.We had to have buy-in, wee had to have trust, in addition to us being able to evaluate our kids ability level of what they could and couldnt do, Bagnoli said.dddddddddddd. You fast-forward a year and I think weve tried to do a good job in addressing all those issues. I think theres been a change in the culture here. I think we have a little bit more confidence and a little bit more exuberance and a little bit more swagger than what we had when we took over the program.Were entering Monday (the opening of preseason camp) with 124 guys on roster, Archer said. Now league rules (say) you can only have 110 to camp, which is what well have. But having the ability to say to the guys in January, Hey, youre going to have to compete just to get a spot in camp, really drove up (competition). And we had our best offseason, best spring practice to date so far.For Columbia, its important for quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg, in his second year after transferring from Florida, to avoid similar injuries of a year ago. Five of last years six leading tacklers, including co-leaders linebacker Keith Brady and safety Christian Conway, return on defense.Up in Ithaca, Cornell brings back 15 starters, although it will have a change at quarterback if sophomore Dalton Banks unseats senior Robert Somborn. The Big Red feature one of the better defenders in the league in safety Nick Gesualdi and perhaps the best punter in the FCS in Chris Fraser.Neither team is ready to challenge for the league title considering more incremental steps are necessary. But the league could take on a different complexion after last years finish marked the first three-way share of the title since 1982. On graduation day, Penn lost 10 starters, Harvard saw 12 depart and Dartmouth lost 17.The trust testament is, who is the next man up? said Penn coach Ray Priore, who succeeded Bagnoli last season. The key to success … is dont forget how you won previous years.You just hope the kids develop and rise to the occasion, are opportunistic when given the opportunity to make their imprint in the program.---=IVY LEAGUE FOOTBALL PRESEASON MEDIA POLL=1.
