Sorry guys, I have not made my point well.
The league moved to a conference system I think two seasons ago for Div2 and then elevated the conferences to Div1.
I am not sure they established a good case for doing so. There are always problems with conferences, so why have them if you do not need to? Why is a small, largely amateur league, satisfied with a poor league structure?
What does having D1 as a two conference structure and D2 as a league division have over three smaller divisions? ie, D1, D2 D3...
Both of you acknowledge one conference is weaker - that is not desirable - it means you have an inherent problem in your league structure. This compromises things in a league that does not need the compromise. It makes promotion and relegation muddier, and it means in this case you have a bloated D1, which will probably impact teams growing into championship through organic growth.
The NFL and NBA need the compromise - I understand that. They are commercial, multiple franchise operations with distinct market opportunities. In the NFL divisional rivalries are fantastic, its just happens to grow into a conference championship.
