Fuji-, T-Home- or Telekom-Cup are tournaments that don't even get 90 minutes of playing time.
The League Cup, on the other hand, was a nice idea, but then some things were done wrong.
I beg your pardon?
The Bavarian Football Association (BFV) canceled the league cup, and there was no ARD focus on it?
It may be that there are more important topics, but we would have liked to see the correspondents on site: Annette Dittert live in Finsing, Sabine Rau, who is always dressed in her hair, goes to FC Türkgücü (“Sorry, I can't find the TG Arena. There is only a dog meadow ... ”), while Moscow expert Ina Ruck is looking around the east of the district and Claudia Buckenmaier is happy to be able to interview civilized football fans, not wild Trump fans.
In the studio, Jörg Schönenborn explains the quotient control on the touchscreen.
As confidently as he usually swipes back and forth between pie and bar charts - here he would despair.
For this reason, too, we are happy that the league cup is buried.
Nobody will miss him - especially since less than half of all clubs would have been involved this year anyway.
The BFV had already made sure of that when, without emergency - and against the announcement - the preliminary round was held in autumn, which in turn ended prematurely and was rated according to the quotient rule.
How fair is this regulation if, for example, FC Finsing 2 makes it into the playoffs with only one game?
Maybe Brennpunkt-Frau Dittert would have got an answer.
We can only serve with a counter question: What is the point of the away goal rule in the Champions League in times of empty stadiums?
It was just agreed beforehand.
Again: The league cup as an additional competition in the event that game days were still available was a great idea.
In any case, it is far too easy to accuse the association with the wrong decisions based on today's knowledge.
But they screwed up the league cup - at the expense of the point round.
Learn from it, and bury the League Cup - forever!
We won't need it in the future either.
As a reminder: There is already a second competition: the Totopokal.
For many years, not a handful of rural associations took part in this until the BFV upgraded the competition.
He attracted attractive opponents (Dorfen was allowed to play against the lions), but also threatened that clubs that refuse would have bad cards if they applied to host playoffs.
The fact remains: what counts is the league.
Additional competitions are no good, at most between two rounds of points: a gap-filling cup, so to speak - Armin Laschet would call it a bridge tournament.
Whereby: it already exists in big football.
It's called the Fuji-, T-Home- or Telekom-Cup and has such an inferior rank that the games don't even get enough time.
The games only last 45 minutes.
Oops, hopefully we didn't give the BFV an idea.
Why nobody cries after the
