The idea has a lot of logic behind it. - clubs will be able to travel on the day to their fixtures more frequently , saving a club like, say Torquay vast sums of money over the season where they aren't paying to put 30 odd people up in hotels in Barrow and Harrogate etc. - Gates would certainly be up with more away fans able to attend the games across the course of the season and more local rivalry.
If Argyle were to have to remain in a newly formed division 4 South I wouldn't exactly be heartbroken about missing games with Morecambe and Grimsby
Watch the last Virtual Board Meeting & you will see that Simon Hallett & Andrew Parkinson are dead against. They said that travel costs are a very small percentage of their overall costs. The football director (can't remember his name) said that the travelling was very good for team bonding & they watch videos of their opponents on the way up. Hallett concluded that the travelling is what makes Argyle fans special.
Love the idea, more local derbies, more of a fan connection and less costs, with the exception of the mighty GA away supporters are a dying bread due to cost and distance and more importantly time, a shorter trip will help all bank balances,
How many Torquay fans would come to HP as opposed to those from Barrow
