Also you would lose the traditional rivalries. Those are the games we all here want to see, the games we wait for all season. The fans don't want to see their teams play some Russian team that most of the people have never heard of (we have the Spengler Cup to see those teams) they want those rivalry games between these teams that are located so close to each other (Biel-Bern, Zurich-Kloten) with the great atmosphere created by the fans of both teams. That's something nobody wants to lose
that is traditional point of view and it is normal. I want to remind you that fans of enshlish soccer clubs had the same opinion when (today´s) UEFA Champions League was created. Everything can be changed, opinion of fans as well.
