That's a little harsh, Smurf. I agree that an ethos of 'everyone's in it to win it' is something that works really well for the CC, but I do worry about the implications of that in the face of 15+ week seasons, especially if drop-outs start to distort the divisions. Without reserves to step in, certain coaches would unavoidably be handed an advantage through free wins. With play-off spots at a premium that might cause serious unrest, leading to further drop-outs. More play-off spots could make that less of an issue, but would again increase the length of the season... All of which is hypothetical; I'm not suggesting it's doomsday for the CC or that the Mayans were a year off just yet. In any case, we'll have a better idea of how the current format's working come the end of CCXI. And I don't believe Gallows has even finalised that format as yet (or have I missed an important post somewhere?).
