Do you agree with what they say?
I just hope it could change poland football in the long term.
So that these leagues can maybe help out EK and eventually help the national team get to where it once was.
We need players like Boniek and Lato again.

I never knew that Boniek is just trying to keep the top 2 leagues professional.
I do not think this will help the lower leagues at all in terms of funding and all.

No its not.
Tell that to Polonia Bytom and LKS Lodz.

Clubs can accumulate debt no problem, that isn't an issue as they don't really have to pay the debt back immediately. But if they get relegated to I Liga and there is no chance at hell they will ever become a viable Ekstraklasa club able to pay its debt back, then that is when liquidation happens.

The changes in II Liga might be good in the long run (Which I somehow doubt. We aren't ready for that yet, we should wait until its viable like what Germany did with their 3 Liga) but it will cause more than half of those clubs to default.
Bytom and LKS Lodz grounds were so laughable. Those clubs were doomed to fail and due to strict licensing requirements. There was no point in saving them. Widzew Lodz is possibly next..

Cracovia fell to first league and bounced back. GKS Belchatow looks like they might get promoted if they keep it up and they are still around. Arka Gdynia is still around too.

You stay alive by meeting licensing requirements and winning.

Polonia played in EK and did well but didnt meet licensing requirements and now play in 4th division. I dont see how playing in EK is keeping "those" clubs alive.

I think it will because it will make it more competitive and thats what people want.

I have read both articles.
Those are both very interesting.
Perhaps, the lower leagues in Poland will now have to suffer.

The lower leagues have been suffering for a long time. The changes made were to make it more leaner and meaner.

I think this is just brutal because the small teams that come up to the EK just end up going bankrupt and cannot meet the license requirements.
Once they get relegated, they are bound to drop 1 or more leagues as with the case of Polonia.
This will surely have an massive effect over the years.
