Agree, I think 3 up/down is too much change each season.

I like something similar to the RL way to do this - perhaps 1 team up/down and a play off match to decide the other.

Or maybe just 1 up/down is enough.

If the 1st div is reduced in number to 10 it could make the 2nd tier a lot more competitive and interesting to watch, perhaps that level could support more fully professional teams, especially with more fair funding from the governing bodies, increased sponsorship and TV money?
