What Richard said is true: when you don't play, you don't bring any money into the coffers. I'm not sure club leaders are ready to hear that“Because the top 12 has the advantage of four weeks off the calendar, but it's two less receptions on the Saban for UBB, less television rights, in short the real economic impact. And you think? Top 14, top 12, top 10 or 8 and having final stages Back to the top 16 with two groups?
