Or they could just extend the season out by one game to allow for 1/3 of the comp to play each other twice (so 17/5), and rotate it around so you actually play every team once every three years and alternate the home game.
That would be fairer for all and more structured, instead of the current anyone’s guess/open to manipulation that we have now.
Rivalries build themselves (don’t need multiple derbies) and less likely to get easier draws as once you play a ■■■■ team twice, you don’t get them again for 3 years. You could even use a ranking/weighting system in the first two years to even out the strengthen of the teams played and then play whoever is left in the third. If you get a bit of luck with a softer draw so be it.
And for GAJ’s sake, ■■■■ off the stupid playing teams multiple times in a short space of time. Play everyone once, then go round again.
