Quoted Text
Incoming National League chairman Brian Barwick said the new branding would "offer much to our existing partners whilst opening up new opportunities".

What a load of flipping nonsense.

Why did they change the name away from the Conference? Did they give a reason for the change?

Don't think they gave a reason why for the name change - just part of rebranding I presume

If we are still in this league next season and we win it,

We will be the National Champions,

Does that qualify us for Europe ?

Absolute nonsense. Why change the name at all? In fact, let's do away with the championship, league 1 & 2 etc and revert to Division1,2,3 and Conference.

"Our announcement around the name change and broadcasting channel excites me and I sincerely hope it excites the football world."

Yes Brian, I imagine L'Equipe and Gazetta dello Sport will be covering it tomorrow.

Well at least however the season ends, this is our last season in the Conference.

I think LH's glass half full is back!UTM

Its hard enough remembering my opinions without remembering my reasons for them!
Brisbane - beautiful one day and perfect the next! UTM!!!
