>no promotion or relegation
For you guys, culturally, watching a small team move up through lower leagues to end up winning it all through smart business dealings and good coaching etc. that's basically the sports equivalent of the American dream, right? It's sad that it doesn't exist. Promotion/relegation is a stimulus to the lower levels of pro sports and eliminates tanking as an option. Bad teams will have to fight to stay in.
>draft order favors losers
This is still the strangest thing in amerisports for me as a yuro. Here, teams with the most shekels get the best players and win almost every year. You guys are doing some communist redistribution of wealth thing that, again, doesn't seem to make sense culturally. It makes amerisports more interesting to watch though, and I would go for promotion/relegation to combat tanking.
But yeah, idk, the jest were supposed to tank this year, they even sucked at that. After following them for 9 years, I'd consider myself a 'fan' of the team, but I didn't watch many of their games this year because I knew they were planning to basically take the year off as an organization. I don't mind the jest losing, but I want to watch teams that want to win, and while your system ensures perenially bad teams like the jest still have a fighting chance to win it all at some distant point in time (which is cool, because I'll never see PSV win the Championsl Eague), I just wasn't at all invested in the last NFL season and didn't really care much.
