You'll have to get past Richmond Athletic first (should they choose to aim for promotion)!

Yes, would be a play-off between the various winners - home and away, if more that one wishes to play in the MPL

That's not true. They were being bankrolled by Phil Whitely, who claimed he had a revolutionary data compression technology that was worth billions, but it was all fantasy and he was convicted of a $5.3 million fraud and sentenced to 5 years. He was arrested during the season in 2008 and Richmond were left scrambling to find enough money to pay for transport to Christchurch to play the rest of their games.

Correct, Richmond played in the MPL in 2007 and 2008 - got relegated at end of 2008 and Jeremy did not turn out for them in 2008.

Worth noting that Phil Whitley has been in the news again lately for scamming people again.

I was ball boy for every single one of those MPL games, what a team we had! Batram Suri was amazing, Benjamin Totori played about half the games for us before Whitley (and his money) went and was still the top scorer for the league that year from memory. We lost quite a few players for the rest of the season after the arrest, we had 4 or 5 Solomon Islanders who all disappeared and I'm pretty sure the one that stayed was deported for sexual assault.

From what I know, money is looking stronger than 2011 which is when we last considered having a go at the MPL but we don't quite have the same talent all over the park. Still, would be nice to have another crack at it!

Can all clubs afford 4 trips to nelson. There are a couple of clubs who you can see struggling with this. Has anyone from nelson/ Richmond league or Marlborough league said they would like to go into play off this year. My understanding was you had to state this before season began. Maybe all white could do some investigation into this v

Four trips to Nelson should not be an issue for Chch clubs considering Suburbs currently  have 10 or 11 trips to Christchurch every season..

That was the rule FC69 when I was involved (up until a couple of seasons ago). All teams in both qualifying leagues had to notify Mainland of their intention to participate in a playoff before the season commenced. Not sure if it still applies.

What's sight without sound? Love without peace? Copulation without conception?

If unsure we can make it up as we go along.
