Owner of Division One League team, Proud United, Jojo Duncan, Jojo Duncan, has raised questions over the decision of the Ghana FA to reduce the Division One League to 18 teams from the current number of 48.On May 15, the FA announced that it had decided to form a committee to implement the transitional provision from 48 teams to 18.The change in the number of teams is steeped in Article 81 (6) of the GFA statutes which states that:“The number of delegates representing the Division One League shall be reduced to 18 (down from the current 48) at the latest by the end of the second football season following the adoption of these Statues.”Duncan believes that the FA has not given very cogent arguments to support the transition and that trying to replicate ideas from other countries without taking the Ghanaian context into question is not the way to go for Ghana football.He spoke to Skyy Power FM in Takoradi on Wednesday.“South Africa is different from Ghana in every aspect so we cannot go and copy exactly what they do. We copy anyhow and want to always import intelligence from everywhere.There is a reason we moved to a 48 team league. The GFA should give tangible reasons why we should get rid of 30 DOL clubs.”Duncan went on to give some suggestions on how the GFA could improve on the current Division One League which is played across three zones in the country.“I think we can improve on our zonal DOL. We need to expand to a 4th zone to accommodate the 6 new regions and we have 12 teams in each zone.We will have more exciting local derbies if we restructure it well. We should not do away with half of the teams so a few benefit.”
“Today wasn’t a very busy day for you guys in terms of signatures coming in,” the reporter said to Saban. “Is that what you expected and how do you feel like you addressed your remaining needs?” Nick Saban only had a few roster spots to fill on National Signing Day after inking 22 players in December during college football’s early signing period.Despite the (expected) lack of activity during the day, the Alabama football coach was still very busy. A reporter found that out the hard way during Saban’s National Signing Day news conference on Wednesday. Sportswriter- “Coach Saban #NSD2020 wasn’t very busy for you…”Literally Everyone- “Oh No.” pic.twitter.com/JP6EdChy61— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) February 5, 2020MORE: Alabama’s 2020 recruiting class faces real pressure to get Crimson Tide back to No. 1Nick Saban replied:“Do you guys take math? Do you have math class? Did you learn how to add when you did have math class? Like 22 and three make 25? I mean… Is that what we expected? That we could only sign three guys. That’s what we expected based on math.“But it was a very busy day, aight, because the calendar is moved up. Aight, so I spend my whole day today — and we spend our whole day today — really on next year’s recruiting. Does that make sense?“So I think I talked to 22 guys today, and I think I talked to 14 guys yesterday. Aight, so it was very busy. In fact, by the end of the day today, I was stuttering on the phone and having a tough time speaking clearly, so that’s how busy it was.”Alabama finished National Signing Day with the No. 2 recruiting class behind Georgia, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
