Out of interest what is stopping them doing that in the current situation?
Presumably the main barrier is that each year there is a cuckoo in the Championship nest in the form of the relegated Premiership team which is generally better financed and has managed to hold on to enough good players to nab the promotion spot. I know that Bristol bucked this trend when they lost the play-offs to Exeter and, in doing so, gave untold grist to the mill for the ringfencing debate, but Most of the time itís been a procession of yo-yos in the relegation and promotion slots.
