    In each team sport we should have one team of men and one team of women and play each other.

    the winning team is declared the "World" The Champions. Simple!

    Ok, we'll have a world cup of football forum.

    I'm in, you? Need two other lads now. First two that reply are in.

    We'll play against @miss_lfc @Missy Moo @Canary Fairy and @TLC to see who is the world champions of FF.

    THE Champions League of darts uses this format. the ATP tour FINALS use it as well.

    The problem with the uefa champions league and cricket world cup and ice hockey at the winter Olympics and Rugby League World Cup is that there are too many teams it drastically over-expanded, and probably the ideal number of teams was 8, too many games, too many one-sided games, too many commercials, and too long a tournament. The product -- edition in and edition out --has been diluted.


    plus we have to prevent player burn out.

    that format also stops the tournament from dragging on for too long. i.e. taking to long to get to the point. finding out/winning the tournament.

    example of a tournament that lasted too long the 2007 cricket world cup.
