More games ???

Personally I think the SLE powers that be have got it wrong... I think that,
at this rate, the quality of games will have suffered dramatically by the
end of the season as the players will all be done in. This can only be bad
for the game in the long run... remember gates have only got higher since
they REDUCED the number of games, which gave a subsequent increase in
quality. There is absolutely NO EVIDENCE that attendances will remain high
with the extra games - for one or two clubs, maybe - but overall I think
they will diminish.

In addition I think it is EXPLOITATION of the players... this isn't soccer,
its a full contact sport. Players bodies can only take so much mangling in a
season!
