Thing is, I'd much rather we had a strong national team than creamed our pants over all the money in the PL. I just don't understand what the hell any of that stuff is all about though. I genuinely cannot be bothered to work it out and, as I've said elsewhere today, if you want to make people invest more of their time in international football, which I assume this is about (at least in part) then at least make it accessible. If it takes more than 3 or 4 bullet points to explain, then you are doing the opposite of making it accessible.
The cynic in me assumes it's a way of ensuring the big boys are at the tournaments and have the highest profile for the minimum effort and there's a bone chucked at the 'minnows' to keep them sweet or at least make it appear like anyone cares about them. As noted elsewhere on this page, it's usually about the money.
